Book Cover Reveal

I’m pleased to reveal the cover for my second novel Sing, I as designed by Morgan Krehbiel (TriQuarterly Books/Northwestern University Press, April 15, 2024). Preorders are a huge help to authors and Sing, I is currently 40% off on the publisher’s website through December 15 (Code: SNOW23). Preorders can also be placed through your local bookstore and library. If you preorder Sing, I as a gift, I’ll happily and gratefully send a card to your giftee telling them you’ve purchased the novel for them and giving them a teaser on what they can look forward to reading.

About Sing, I:

Inside Half Moon Bay, a sparkling California coastal town, Ester Prynn is dulled and diminished by struggles with work, money, marriage, her senile father, a troubled teenage son, and old guilt she can’t quiet. When a masked gunman robs the convenience store where Ester works, he upends her fraught life and propels her toward passions buried, like singing; desires discovered, like a same-sex infatuation; and wrongs righted, like bringing the violent assailant to justice. But as the armed robber commits more crimes and continues to evade capture, the trauma from the holdup climbs, threatening Ester’s newfound delights and longings and forcing her to contend with her burning regrets and what-ifs. In the reckoning between Ester and these growing, molten upsets, she’s faced with enormous choices and must determine what and who can bring her to her best life.
