A friend of mine in New York City told a marketing manager at Bloomsbury about this blog, and about a week ago I received a package from Bloomsbury with three shiny new hardcover books inside, plus the catalogs of what’s coming out this fall and winter. New books are right up there with new notebooks—all those fresh pages—on my list of favorite things. One particularly eye-catching novel was Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin. It has a beautiful, shiny, deep red cover. Of course, I just had to open it.
