American Booksellers Association
I’m thrilled to share the latest news – Looking for Me has the honor of being selected as a June 2013 INDIE NEXT PICK! Huge thanks to the independent booksellers across the country for all their support and the fantastic review! The listing of all the INDIE NEXT books can be found here.
I just received news from the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance (SIBA) and I’m delighted to announce that LOOKING FOR ME has been chosen as a SIBA Okra Pic. And what is an Okra Pick?
The Okra Picks are a dozen new titles chosen each season that SIBA Indie Booksellers are eager to hand-sell. These books must be southern in nature and can cover any genre, not just fiction. Each publishing season ushers in a new harvest of Okra Picks, and only SIBA booksellers can make a nomination for this award.
This is wonderful honor!
Indie bookseller nominations for the June 2013 Indie Next List—“Great Reads from Booksellers You Trust”—are in, and LOOKING FOR ME is a nominee.
Huge thanks to the booksellers across the country!
Esteemed Norwegian publisher, Gyldendal, has purchased rights to Looking for Me. They are planning to publish in the late autumn of 2013 and I am over-the-moon thrilled!
This wonderful old teddy from the early 1900s is a family heirloom. He’s handmade from mohair and stuffed with excelsior. Most days he sits atop a library ladder, but he was happy to be brought down to have his photo taken. His name is Benjamin Bear. I love his shoe button eyes and how some of his fur has been loved off. He is one of the antiques in my new novel.
