Friday Short Post--The New Official Cover Image of Boswell Book Company--Thank You to Kelly McNees and Adam McOmber for Keeping with the Program.

So several years ago we hosted Kelly O'Connor McNees for the book, The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott. We had a good time, and so when the new novel, In Need of a Good Wife came out, we asked her back, teaming the author with Jean Reynolds Page, author of Safe Within. They are appearing together on Tuesday, October 23, 7 pm. The backlist came in, and the books are on display at the front of our store. Sharon has read and enjoyed the new book.

So then Stacie was at her desk, looking at our other upcoming events. She glanced at Adam McOmber's The White Forest. McOmber is coming for this novel on Wednesday, September 26. She took a second peak. And what do you know? It's the same photo, just retouched differently. It's darkened, metallicized, and with a little fishnetting added. And Jason's a fan of this one.

"Jane Silverlake is a lost soul, when Maddy and Nathan find her. They bring her out into the wide open world of Hampstead Heath. Jane is different, however, and she can feel and hear the souls of manmade objects. Jane reveals herself to them, hoping she can trust them with her burden so she does not have to be alone with it. She is wrong, and Nathan is changed by it. His obsession leads him to the occult and then he disappears. Jane’s world begins to crumble around her. Jane’s naiveté of the outside world lands her into trouble as she looks for him. Adam McOmber has delivered an ingenious, haunting tale full of mystery and dread, as we all know that nothing good can come from Jane discovering who she is and what happened to Nathan, but we all must find out for good or ill."

We'll have more coming up about both books. And I'll let you know if both of the authors wind up reading together. They both live in the Chicago area, so it could happen.
