At the exact half way point between my Fall and Winter newsletters, I’m slipping in an extra one because … the moment is finally here! The national (and international) Pub Date of the hardcover of Old New Worlds is today, October 15th 2019.

Three years of writing and research …

A year of editing …
+ a perpendicular learning curve about the (arcane!) publishing process …
+ a ​Baltimore Fishbowl Q&A with my MFA professor …
+ a couple of intriguing writing gigs pitched by marketer extraordinaire, Ben Tanzer:
 If My Book, the Monkeybicyclefeature
The Rumpus, WHAT TO READ WHEN YOUR LIFE FEELS BIFURCATED
A thoroughly heartwarming September 15th Baltimore launch party at The Ivy Bookshop

The October roll-out of the e-book and audiobook—
(thank you Green Writers Press’s Digital Director, Emma Irving!) …

And … A BOOK IS BORN!

Available from:

The Ivy Bookshop | Indie Bound | Barnes and Noble | Amazon | Books-A-Million | Goodreads
