Booklist Review

Booklist Online ran a positive review of ARE YOU SLEEPING yesterday! I just love this quote:

An excellent examination of what it must be like to be caught up in a media frenzy…absorbing reading for those who can’t get enough of flawed-but-likable narrators.

AYS in Cosmopolitan

I’m so, so excited to share that ARE YOU SLEEPING is in the August issue of Cosmopolitan! I just love the image, too; I think it’s so striking! Here’s the text, in case it’s too small to read: “Josie’s dark past becomes fodder for the podcast du jour — if that doesn’t hook you, the twist will.”

Staff Pick at Powell’s

I’m so thrilled to see ARE YOU SLEEPING listed as a staff pick at Powell’s Books! I just love this endorsement:

This chilling debut reads like a mash-up of “Serial” and Dark Places, a suspenseful mystery to read without stopping to eat, sleep, or breathe!

Powell’s is definitely worth a visit! It’s one of the most amazing bookstores I’ve ever been in … we visited it a couple of years ago when a road trip took us through Portland, and I could have spent all day there! It has soooo many books.
