I wanted to give a shout out to my friend Karin Gillespie (aka Karen Neches), whose novel Earthly Pleasures--here's an excerpt--came out this week. Karin will be making some appearances in Georgia and SC-- check out her schedule to see if she's coming to your neighborhood bookstore. This is Karin's fourth book ( three novels under Karin Gillespie and this one under her nom de plume.)
Earthly Pleasures is a Booksense Notable for February-- quite an honor. And what a terrific cover!
Publishers Weekly gushes:
"...Appealingly unorthodox... a heaven where angels lust, drink and follow terrestrial celebrity gossip… A tangled story of cold ambition and true love unspools. Neches’s funny and sweet novel shows that to err is human and angelic as well."Visit Karin's blog Southern Comfort or her Myspace page for more info. She also has a terrific page for writers, with lots of useful links.
