The independent booksellers of America picked Running from the Devil as a "Notable Book" for May! I'd learned this news a while ago, but didn't believe it until I actually confirmed it at Indiebound.org http://www.indiebound.org/indie-next-list?edition=200905. I confirmed on "Buy Indie" day (May 1st).
I immediately headed to my local independent, the Book Cellar, in Lincoln Square, Chicago. I'd read that Lenore Skenazy, author of "Free-Range Kids: Giving our Children the Freedom We Had Without Going Nuts with Worry," would be signing and I was interested to hear her speak.
It was a great way to celebrate the news, to Buy Indie, and to learn something. Lenore was a riot: interesting and informative, the book store owner and employees were friendly, and I couldn't have asked for a more pleasant time. I'm honored they chose my book, love what they do every day to further reading and learning, and wish them continued success. Many thanks to them.
