Hello from Seattle! You may already know that we have recently repatriated to the U.S., having said farewell to our dear Amsterdam. We’re getting settled in our newest (and oldest) city, and book news for CARRIER keeps popping up.
Today, you can read a brand-new author interview on the wonderful online magazine Literary Mama. Huge thanks to the amazing editors at Literary Mama for the beautiful work they do!
Meanwhile, CARRIER has also been nominated to the Minnesota Book Awards. Finalists will be announced January 31. I love celebrating Minnesota literature! Even though I’m now found in Seattle, I’m still carrying around a Minnesota driver’s license, a Minneapolis public library card, and a bit of a funny accent!
Since my return to the U.S., I’ve been picking up the pace of book club visits, and meeting some fabulous booksellers. My personal favorite so far is the bookseller who, after a nice chat about author events in her store, happened to ask my name. When I said, “Bonnie Rough,” her eyes flew wide and she said, “CARRIER! I LOVE your book!” Talk about a way to make an author’s day!
Stay tuned for more Pacific Northwest events, and remember, if your book club (in any city) is reading CARRIER, it’ll now be much easier for me to schedule a visit, Skype, or phone call with your group. You are welcome to contact me.
Thanks for checking in for the latest news, and thanks too for visiting www.bonniejrough.com!
