My second book has an official title. Whoosh. (That’s not the title–that’s me exhaling. It’s been through a couple of names already, and I just couldn’t figure out the exact right one. But now I’ve got it, by George!) Anyway, it’s called (drumroll):
A SOFT PLACE TO LAND.
I am soo excited about it. It’s a sister story (of sorts) and like BOUND SOUTH it’s set in Atlanta and San Francisco, although this one has more San Francisco in it. And it’s coming out soon, in May, 2010!
Other news: I’m going to be at Charis Books this weekend, on 1189 Euclid Avenue, in the Little Five Points district of Atlanta. Charis was started as a feminist bookstore 35 years ago (one year before I was started!) and it’s been going strong ever since. In celebration of their 35th birthday the good people of Charis have asked a bunch of Atlanta writers to come sign books on Saturday and Sunday, plus there will be cake and all merchandise is 10 percent off. I’m going to be there signing books from 4-5pm on Saturday, along with Kathryn Stockett, author of the incredible novel, THE HELP. If you’re in Little 5, or are on your way home from the Cabbagetown Chomp and Stomp, come on by.
And finally, I got this great jpg from April, whose book club is reading BOUND SOUTH. Check it out:
Thems Bound Souths they’re holding…
