Honestly, I don't know if I can be impartial when reviewing this, but I'm going to try. I first read an earlier version of this book when Laura Creedle and I were paired in an online beta reading group and she gave feedback on a novel of mine that remains unpublished. I feel it's important to mention, I fell in love with Lily's voice even then, back before I knew Laura and had the benefit of her wisdom in an ongoing basis. But years later, I've re-read a published copy of The Love Letters of Abelard and Lily and I find it better than ever.
My book is a real, solid object now! There's a copy sitting beside me as I type this, and finally, I no longer feel like a fraud saying "I'm a writer" when I introduce myself to people. As the countdown to May 1st continues, this week I thought I would share a little of what led me to my publisher, Ford Street, and what it has been like to publish with them.
It's coming... The Things We Can't Undo will be released 1 May 2018. Here's some more info on what you can expect in the next 7 weeks:
