Now that May 2015 has finally rolled around, there's a surge of interest in DIETLAND. I try to keep my website pages updated with all the new links, but I wanted to take a moment to share a few highlights here:
Goodreads has selected me for their Debut Author Snapshot for May. You can read an interview with me and see a few Dietland-related photos that I shared. I'm so honored to be chosen for this. I had a great time doing the interview.
Dietland has been selected for the June Indie Next List! Here's a preview. The Indie Next List is a select list of new books that comes out each month, drawn from independent bookseller recommendations. It's printed as a newsletter and distributed in independent bookstores across the country. I'm honored that booksellers chose me for this.
Amazon Editors chose Dietland as one of eleven "Top Picks" for Best Books of the Month (May 2015). Dietland is featured with new books by Karl Ove Knausgaard, Kate Atkinson and other big names. Those of you who know me know that I LOVE Kate Atkinson, so this is almost surreal. On Dietland's Amazon page, you can scroll down and read Amazon Editorial Director Sara Nelson's review. She calls me a "twisted sister" — which is, of course, true.
There's an interview with me in BookPage.
Boris Kachka of Vulture (New York Magazine) has recommended Dietland as one of 8 Books You Need to Read this May.
Caroline Goldstein of Bustle has selected Dietland as one of 18 best books of May.
Whew! The first week of May has been packed full of so many good things!
