Nix Minus One – It’s Official!


It’s very exciting to see the cover of Nix Minus One officially posted on my website!  The book can be pre-ordered now, and you’ll find it in bookstores on February 15th.

The warmest of thanks to:

  • my wonderful Pajama Press publisher, Gail Winskill
  • my always insightful editor, Ann Featherstone
  • the very talented Pajama Press publicist, Erin Woods, who produced the trailer
  • the equally talented Art Director, Rebecca Buchanan, who came up with the “sawdust” concept for the cover – the all-important cover.

I have a copy of the book in my hand. There’s nothing like holding your own book, turning its pages, smoothing the letters of the title…and, of course, wondering who will read it.

This is especially true for a book that started with nothing but the title – Nix Minus Onethree words that suddenly came into my head on a cold January afternoon two years ago, and refused to go away.

I’ve lived with Nix for the last two years, hearing his voice, worrying about him, hurting for him. And now I have to let him go.

I hope you like him as much as I do.
