Kristin Bair O'Keeffe's debut novel, Thirsty, will be published by Swallow Press on October 1, 2009. A family saga that explores domestic abuse, race, class, and Pittsburgh's mighty steel industry, Thirsty tells the story of Klara Bozic, a Croatian immigrant who seeks the strength-through love and friendship-to leave an abusive husband.
Can Klara rise above her circumstances and lay claim to her own peaceful spot in the world? To find out, buy Thirsty today as part of Kristin's Amazon Spike Day!
CINDY HUDSON'S first book is nonfiction. Book By Book, The Complete Guide to Creating Mother-Daughter Book Clubs is coming on October 1st from Seal Press. (Yes, that's right, Kristin and Cindy's books share the same publication date.)
I recently interviewed Cindy about her nonfiction book pitching and writing process over at The Writer Mama Riffs blog. You can read the complete interview here.
Even if you don't have a daughter yourself, Book By Book makes a great gift for a mom who does.
What I'd love more than anything is for folks to read their books and recommend them to others.
These are two great women, who have worked long and hard to create excellent-quality books for readers. Thanks in advance for your support today or any day!
