Commercial Fiction - what sets it apart?

Commercial books dominate the bestseller lists but often miss out on literary reviews and industry attention. The critics say they are written purely for entertainment and rely on convention - but isn’t this what makes them successful? Who doesn’t love a good story? Join author Elise McCune speaking with Sally Hepworth whose latest best-selling book The Mother-in-Law has been optioned by actress Amy Poehler for a pilot-series with NBC, and Jane Cockram whose debut novel The House of Brides is a best-seller, to discuss what sets commercial fiction apart
