As I put it on Twitter: this is ALL CAPS NEWS.
TML is a Midwest Connections pick for January 2015! I have been so thrilled with how independent bookstores all over the country have been embracing TML so far, and this is such an amazing honor, especially given how near and dear the Midwest is to my heart.
This means that if you live in the area covered by the Midwest Independent Booksellers Association -- Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, and part of Michigan -- you've got a very good chance of seeing TML in your local indie. Yay!
If you haven't read TML yet, a large part of the action is set in Janesville, Iowa, with some pivotal action in Chicago, and mentions of towns from Davenport to Okonomowoc. So this is very much on Arden's, and my, home turf.
