I can’t believe it, but, in only three days, Lies and Other Acts of Love will be hitting the shelves! So it felt like a big, huge gift when I got the news that my brand new book baby is one of the Southern indie bookseller’s Okra Picks! Being on this list of the twelve upcoming books that booksellers are most excited about was one of my biggest dreams when I found out I was getting published, so, when I heard the news yesterday, I had to make sure it wasn’t an April Fools joke!
Other picks include Last Ride to Graceland by my friend Kim Wright, A Thousand Miles from Nowhere by John Gregory Brown, released by the amazing Lee Boudreaux Books, and Redemption Road by the super talented John Hart, a fellow Salisburian with four New York Times bestsellers and two Edgar Awards under his belt. Like my favorite booksellers, I’m so excited to read all of the books on this list!
In other news, we can’t wait to cheer our Tar Heels to VICTORY tonight in the Final Four! Counting down the hours until the big game! Who do you think will win that National Championship?
If you’re looking for a good story to kick of your spring or summer reading, it would mean the world to me if you would consider picking up a copy of Lies and Other Acts of Love! Our $1,000 Shop Design Chic gift card giveaway is going on for only eight more days! Just order or purchase from your favorite bookseller and email a picture of the receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org to be entered just in time to spruce your space for spring!
Thank you to all of your for your love, support and kindness over these past eleven months since this book journey began. I am so grateful for each and every one of you! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
