Thumbs Up from a “1st Reader” of THE ART OF FLOATING

Back in January, during Kathryn Craft’s launch party on Facebook, Wendy Paine Miller won an ARC of THE ART OF FLOATING. A few days ago, after reading the book, she messaged me on Twitter. Here’s what she said:

“Finished your book tonight. I loved it! I’m really going to miss Sia! We have a lot in common…. Seriously am going to be wondering about Sia, Toad, M, Jilly…the whole crew years from now.”

Whew! Music to this author’s ears. It’s always great to get a positive review from one of the wonderful review publications out there, but it’s extra special when a review comes from a reader.

Thanks, Wendy! For reading & loving THE ART OF FLOATING!



Wonderful Review in BOOKLIST of THE ART OF FLOATING!

Great news!

On March 1, THE ART OF FLOATING received a glowing review from Booklist. After a delicious description of the story, here’s how it culminates:


“Blending radiant language and a dreamlike journey through sorrow and healing, this is one to recommend to fans of Sarah Addison Allen and Eowyn Ivey.”

~Booklist (March 1, 2014)


If you’re familiar with either or both of these two marvelous writers, you’ll know what an honor it is to be mentioned alongside them.

Yay! (cartwheels down the hall!!!)
