Happy October! For those of you who celebrate Halloween, or the changing of seasons, or Pumpkin Spice in everything, it’s a good month.
Now, our news:
School Library Journal had this to say about Jaye Robin Brown’s No Place to Fall:
“Debut author Brown is off to a wonderful start with authentic characters who speak in true voices. Amber could be the best friend you had in high school—she’s funny and moody and truthful and absolutely the real deal, and readers will clamor for another well-paced story featuring her and her friends.”
And from Publisher’s Weekly:
“Debut author Brown makes a small town in North Carolina —where everyone knows everyone, and the outside world comes in via the Appalachian Trail hikers – fee real, but the heart of the story is Amber, as tries to find herself, love, and her voice.”
And Kirkus Reviews:
“Southern charm oozes off the page….the read is an enjoyable ride.”
(I have to check out this book for several reasons, not the least of which is because the main character and I have the same name.)
And finally, Dahlia Adler’s debut, Behind the Scenes, got a makeover cover, and it’s awesome:
This month’s news is short but sweet! Enjoy the rest of October. Watch out for large pumpkins.
