Introducing a Beautiful New Novel, and Another Chance to Win The Violets of March!

Hello all! I want to tell you about a beautiful new novel, published by my dear friend Camille Noe Pagán. The Art of Forgetting, out on June 9 from Penguin (Dutton), is a gorgeous story about friendship, and how one friend’s brain injury changes the way two friends relate to one another and how they move forward.

Not only is Camille a dear friend, but we also have so much in common, I’ve started referring to her as my East Coast twin. We’re both magazine writers, we both work from home with small children (in fact, we were each pregnant at the same time a few months ago!), and we also happen to share an editor and an agent. I think it’s possible we were separated at birth.

So, because I adore this lady so much, and her beautiful book, I’m offering five free copies of The Violets of March to the first five people who send me their pre-order receipt for The Art of Forgetting (from an online book store, or your favorite independent!). Just order Camille’s book between May 25 and May 31, send me a copy of the receipt of purchase, and I’ll mail the first five lucky winners (U.S. only please) a copy of Violets!

Two books for the price of one! (And, bonus: Camille is also making a donation to The Bob Woodruff Foundation for every pre-order.)

    Just wanted to let you know that instead of entering your contest, this time I just went and bought the book. I Sat down in the bookstore and while my daughter was picking out her book and her gift for my niece, I began to read it. So happy that I picked it up. I will now be going out next and checking out The Art of Forgetting. Thanks for the recommendation. Keep the books coming.
