PRE-PUBLICATION NEWS ABOUT THE BOOK OF SOMEDAY!
BEA, largest book trade fair in the US, is including The Book of Someday as one of only thirty titles featured in the BEA 2013 Book Buzz promotion!
A NEW NOVEL FROM DIANNE DIXON - An overnight read by Shana Drehs at Sourcebooks led to a swift pre-emptive bid for world English rights to a new novel by Dianne Dixon. The deal is for two books. The publisher says that The Book of Someday, scheduled for publication in September 2013, is in the tradition of Kristin Hannah and Jodi Picoult:
The Book of Someday is a riveting page-turner about strong but imperfect women who take charge of their own fate—the haunting story of three women whose lives are mysteriously connected by an intriguing mystery that exposes the unexpected ways in which we protect, and betray, the people we love."
