Texas Institute of Letters

Texas, you've been so good to me. Not only did I get to ride a mechanical horse at the National Cowgirl Museum this morning, I just learned that HANA SASAKI's been named one of three finalists for the Texas Institute of Letters' Steven Turner Award for First Fiction!


Foreword's Book of the Year Award

Hana Sasaki has been nominated for a Book of the Year Award.

Foreword Reviews, the only review magazine solely dedicated to discovering new indie books, announced the finalists for its 16th Annual Book of the Year Awards today.



Review Round-up: Praise for HANA SASAKI

The Chicago Tribune's in-depth review by Amy Gentry is whipsmart and wonderful.

A starred review from Publishers Weekly!

Over at The Japan Times, this reviewer has a thing for the cover.

Foxing Quarterly's brand-new blog, Fox Hunting, launched with this gorgeous, insightful consideration of the book,"The Wabi-Sabi of Hana Sasaki" by The Miniature Wife author Manuel Gonzales.


HANA SASAKI has a book trailer--animated with sand!

Corrie Francis Parks created this minute-long trailer for Three Scenarios in Which Hana Sasaki Grows a Tail. BookPeople, Austin's go-to independent bookstore since 1970, mentions it in a post called "When Book Trailers Are Art." Indeed!


New Website

There is now a brand-spankin-new website for me and the book. Get info about author appearances, reviews, links to other work, and stalk me on social media!
