New Site + From Away Book Launch, and ALA Midwinter ’18!

We hope you like our new look!

We’ve been busy this new year (can you believe it’s already February?), and have a lot of news! For one thing, you might notice our site has a new look—what do you think? There’s a new “Store” button up top to help make supporting us directly a little easier, and a bunch of other small (but lovely!) changes all over the place. Let us know if you have any suggestions, as we just rolled out the new site this week, and would love some feedback! Read on to hear more about the other launch we had this week, Phoef Sutton’s From Away, at Chevalier’s Books, and for info about PPB’s appearance at ALA Midwinter this weekend in Denver, CO!

 

On Tuesday night, we had the pleasure of launching From Away, the haunting new novel by Phoef Sutton (author of our Crush mystery series). We had a great turnout at the lovely Chevalier’s Books on Larchmont, and friend of PPB Lee Goldberg was there to interview Phoef about his latest book—his most personal one to date.

It’s definitely one of our favorite book we have going out this year, and has already received some awesome press. For example, Steven Moffat, creator of Sherlock and executive producer of Dr. Who, had this to say about From Away:

“I loved this book—it’s the best take on ghosts and how they work that I’ve ever read. Scary and mad but real, with crackling dialogue, From Away is a rare creature: a proper novel and a proper ghost story.
I massively enjoyed it.”

Finally, this weekend is the annual American Library Association’s Midwinter meet-up in Denver, CO.  PPB’s founder Colleen Bates will be in attendance, as will our Mas Arai mystery series author Naomi Hirahara—she’ll be signing copies of Hiroshima Boy, the final book in the series, on Saturday, Feb. 10th., at 3 P.M. Prospect Park Books will be at booth #1818, and we’re bringing Girl Scout Cookies! Be sure to stop by and say hi!
