A US Cover for The Light We Lost

Christmas (and Chanukah) came early this year at my house. The wonderful team at Putnam sent me the jacket for The Light We Lost and I just adore it. (I also adore the quote from Delia Ephron right under my name–and if you haven’t read her book Siracusa, it’s a perfect holiday gift to buy for yourself or a loved one.)

An Article from The Netherlands

Thanks to Google Alerts, I found out that there was an article written about me and The Light We Lost in Dutch! And thanks to Google Translate, I sort of found out what it said. Here’s the article. And here’s the translation:

Prometheus, following an auction acquired the rights to “The Light We Lost,” a novel about love written by the American author Jill Santopolo Book Journal reports.The novel has been sold to eight countries in three weeks, including Germany, Denmark, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Norway and Brazil. Remarkable, this international attention. It is not often that a major title is auctioned everywhere so quickly during the holiday season. The Light We Lost is the story of a love triangle, about a woman who must choose between two lovers: her great childhood sweetheart Gabriel, who left her as a war photographer to travel around the world but with whom she has always maintained a passionate relationship, and her husband Darren, with whom she now has two children. Jill Santopolo, according to her website, has twelve children’s books and two books for teens to her name. With The Light We Lost she focuses for the first time on adults as a target group.

There’s something especially exciting about being written about in a language I don’t know…

My Debut Novel for Adults!

Since 2012, I’ve had a secret. While I was writing the Sparkle Spa series and the Follow Your Heart books, I very slowly, very tentatively, was writing a novel for adults as well. And I’m so thrilled to announce that the novel I was working on sold to Putnam and will be published in the summer of 2017! Here’s a screen grab of the announcement as well as a link to its location on the internet. (!!!)IMG_0705
