I was going to do a new #YAMyLife post this week, but I’m currently drowning in a quagmire of revisions on a project that will go unnamed for now. Yes, this makes it sound much more dramatic than it actually is but, hell, this is the interwebs. The truth is that sometimes you write a book a certain way and then realize later that that way isn’t going to work, but the core story is worth saving. Such is writer-life.
But it’s not all doom and gloom over here. My debut novel, THE ART OF ESCAPING, got a starred review from Kirkus, which is both extremely validating and completely terrifying. The review is in the April 15th print issue but you can read it online here.
In related news, my launch party for THE ART OF ESCAPING will be at Gibson’s Bookstore in Concord, NH, on June 28th at 5:30pm. There will be literary ramblings and probably some kind of book-themed sugary treats. I hope to see all you NH locals there!
