I’m so thrilled that iBooks named The Light We Lost one of the Best Books of 2017 (So Far). It’s there with books from so many writers I admire. (Also, I love the graphic I got along with being on the list.)
If you happen to be looking for something to listen to while you read The Light We Lost, I made a playlist of the songs that were on repeat on my iPhone while I was writing the novel. They’re here at Spotify: http://spoti.fi/2s7FdhK (And you can see my kind of all-over-the-place taste in music.)
I did this photo shoot when the Greek edition of The Light We Lost arrived. I loved getting to see how my name was spelled using the Greek alphabet. I also loved that my photo is flopped, so I’m looking right instead of left, like I usually do in that picture. And I loved
that Delia Ephron, Karma K. Brown, Brenda Bowen, and Thomas Christopher Greene are on the back flap!
The Light We Lost got a starred review in Shelf Awareness! If you’d like to read it, here’s the link: http://www.shelf-awareness.com/…/20…/the_light_we_lost.html
I ate some celebratory Pad Thai for lunch when I found out that Penguin licensed a Thai edition of The Light We Lost. (I was very excited about this news.)
I wrote a (very!) short story, and it’s now being published in the Sunday Express Magazine in the UK. The link is right here, if you’d like to read it: http://www.express.co.uk/…/Exclusive-short-story-by-Jill-Sa…
I celebrated with Prosecco when Il Giorno Aspettiamo hit the bestseller list in Italy! Number 19! Evviva!
