Today, People Who Knew Me is officially out in the world. Today is also my second wedding anniversary. How’s that for good juju?
The one word I would use to describe today is SURREAL. So surreal. I cannot believe my book is in stores, but here’s proof:
I also found out today that the book is on Audible. I really like the reader they chose. Here’s an excerpt for your enjoyment:
I am still in shock that I was reviewed in the Wall Street Journal this past weekend.
“Written as a series of interwoven flashbacks, “People Who Knew Me” has a sharp edge of emotional trauma and disappointment. It is very easy to love Emily—she is like any of us, struggling to make the best decisions she can. Ms. Hooper reminds us that control is an illusion, that the past offers no pardons and the choices we make, in turn, make us.”
I’m getting great reviews from bloggers (thank you, everyone!):
The Pan Macmillan Australia team is bringing the book down under. The Shepparton News featured an interview with me recently. I actually heard from a reader in Australia who bought my book at the Brisbane International Airport. SURREAL.
