I’m over the moon with the company WHISTLING PAST THE GRAVEYARD is keeping this summer! Thank you The Bitter Southerner for adding WPTG to your great summer reads list!
With great excitement and gratitude I announce that Whistling Past the Graveyard was awarded the 2014 SIBA Award for Fiction. I can’t thank the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance enough for this honor, and for all of the support they’ve collectively given this book. When I learned that WPTG had been selected as a finalist, I was over the moon. The other five finalists were truly amazing books, written by wonderfully talented authors. I didn’t dare hope. But dreams apparently do come true!
Whistling Past the Graveyard was featured on KSL5, Utah’s Studio 5 with Brooke Walker as one of the best summer reads of 2014 along with other bestsellers by Lauren Graham, Pigeon Pie Mystery by Julia Stuart, The Paris Wife by Paula McLain and One Plus One by Jojo Moyes!
Teir Harman is kind enough to call Whistling… “A book that got everything right…”!
Pack ’em up and head for the pool! You’ve got some reading to do.
Whistling Past the Graveyard is a finalist for the 2014 SIBA Book Award in fiction! She joins great books including Guests on Earth by Lee Smith (Shannon Ravenel Books), Life After Life by Jill McCorkle (Shannon Ravenel Books), Sycamore Row by John Grisham (Doubleday Books) and The Tilted World by Tom Franklin & Beth Ann Fennelly (William Morrow & Company) competing for the honor.
