It’s the day the debut novel of one of my old LOL Lit Forum buddies hits the shelves! Wooohooo!!! Linda, I’ve said it before, but I’ll just say it again: We’re so damn proud of you!!!!
When I posted my first excerpt on the forum way back in 2000, Linda was the first to reply. Around the same time as I joined the Lit Forum, she started posting from a new novel of hers, BETWEEN THE PAGES, a wonderful YA fantasy novel (if I’m not mistaken she never posted the ending, though — boohoo). These past few years Linda and her family lived in Japan (and they probably went to the Ghibli Museum — can you tell I’m jealous? I swear I’m turning all green!!!), and her new home obviously influenced her Muse: the book’s that coming out today deals with a young Japanese-American Nori who spends a year in Tokyo as an exchange student. She learns all kinds of things — not only about the Japanese culture, but also about herself.
It definitely sounds fascinating, and I hope you’ll all dash to the nearest bookstore to pick up a copy!
