If you are a fan of literary fiction and/or YA, this post is for you. I recently interviewed author Jennifer Miller and she told me about a fun project she is putting together to promote the release of the paperback version of her novel The Year of the Gadfly. Here are the details:
During the month of July, Miller is trying to set the record for the most book club visits in 30 days. Any group of five or more will receive a copy of the book and a 30-minute chat with Miller via Skype during evenings and lunch hours. Participants will also receive entry into her "Prep School Pack" Giveaway, which is a gift pack of Miller's favorite prep-school novels, movies and after-school snacks.
Here is the page on Miller's site where you can find out how your group can participate.
Here is the Amazon description of the book:
Iris Dupont, a budding journalist whose only confidant is the chain-smoking specter of Edward R. Murrow, feels sure she can break into the ranks of The Devil's Advocate, the Party's underground newspaper, and uncover the source of its blackmail schemes and vilifying rumors. Some involve the school's new science teacher, who also seems to be investigating the Party. Others point to an albino student who left school abruptly ten years before, never to return. And everything connects to a rare book called Marvelous Species. But the truth comes with its own dangers, and Iris is torn between her allegiances, her reporter's instinct, and her own troubled past.
