Giveaway! 5 copies of Jen Michalski’s newest novel available! @QFPress

Hi, everyone! I am pleased to announce that Jen Michalski has agreed to give away five copies of her newest novel, The Summer She Was Under Water. Each novel will be autographed to the winner by Jen! Before you enter, be sure to read my review of this August 2016 release from Queen’s Ferry Press.

Here are some observations from my review:

“I thought I knew exactly what happened in the past based on contextual clues, but I was wrong. It’s much more complicated.”

“Michalski easily works in fluidity: lesbian, bi, straight, male, female, both.”

The Summer She Was Under Water is an emotional giant.”

GOODREADS SYNOPSIS: It has been twenty years since Sam Pinski, a young novelist, has spent the Fourth of July weekend with her family at their cabin on the Susquehanna River. There, she must confront a chaotic history of mental illness, alcoholism, and physical violence and struggle to find perspective in the pulse of things familiar and respite from the shame of the taboo relationship that courses through her. As she does, a subplot emerges: Excerpts are included from Sam’s metaphoric novel in which a pregnant man tries to solve the mystery of his fertility and absolve himself of his past. Then tragedy strikes the Pinskis and they must draw together, tentatively realizing that they will continue to spin off in their own orbits unless they begin the hard work of forgiveness themselves.

    • Ha, thanks. I just wanted to ask people what the name of their blog is in case someone I don’t know signs up. Some people have WordPress accounts but no blog. They basically set up the accounts so they can comment on other people’s blogs. You’re entered!
