I was interviewed by Books, Ink at HamletHub for their “Seven Bookish Questions” column on June 27, 2013. Read the full article here!
Yay! My book cover won a design award! Thank you to Joel Friedlander at The Book Designer, www.thebookdesigner.com, for selecting Lauren Takes Leave as the October 2012 book cover winner. Just to be a tad bit bragadocious, let me tell you what Joel said about the design, which was done by my hudband, Brett Gerstenblatt, together with designer Gary Tooth and illustrator Liz Starin:
“Beautiful and perfectly appropriate for this comic novel. Outstanding typography and illustration deftly combined by a skilled designer. A great solution for using images to evoke elements from the book, this cover is one of the most successful I’ve seen at bridging the print/ebook worlds.”
Fun! We had a book signing and Lauren Takes Leave theme ride at SoulCycle Scarsdale on October 1, 2012…with jell-o shots!
