Coming back to work this year, feels like coming back to school after summer. Lots of excitement for what’s to come in the year ahead. That’s what it felt like today in the office. After several sleepy weeks with New York resembling a hot, humid ghost town, everything and everyone was a-buzz with possibilities. Phone calls from editors looking for the next big book. Authors checking in to say hello. Everyone back in the office after a long weekend at the beach. What a wonderful feeling of energy, optimism and excitement. So for some it’s about new notebooks, new teachers and new outfits And for some of us it’s about new authors, new manuscripts, new books and…new outfits.
We have two BIG launches this month including Changing Shoes by Tina Sloan. Many of you will be familiar with her starring role as Nurse Lillian Raines on Guiding Light. Tina’s book will publish next week and her one-woman show by the same name will premier in New York (it is sold out here but the show will soon be traveling around the country on September 20). If you want to see a fabulous book trailer click here.
And big congratulations to Joan Frances Turner on her spectacular debut novel Dust which has published this week and is off to a tremendous start.
All good things ahead…Happy Fall!
