The next chapter
January 1, 1970Dear Readers,
My book is published today! If you go to http://jeknowles.com and click on Arusha, you can now see the beautifully designed cover. It is linked to my publisher's site, selling both print and e-book versions.
As some of you know, after publication of my novel, I will be beginning the next chapter in my life--this time in London (UK)! In anticipation of this move, I am planning to launch my book here in Toronto, where I have made so many friends over the past nine years. If you are in the area, I hope you will come to my book launch with Glad Day Bookshop.
For options outside Toronto, please see "Buying Books? You Have Choices!":
"Arusha is a quietly affective, gracefully written and heart-wrenching novel, written in an assured, convincing and sympathetic narrative voice, about a woman’s struggle to break free of the strictures of family, religion and societal convention and find her own kind of happiness."
-- Kim Moritsugu, author of The Restoration of Emily and The Glenwood Treasure
"A star is born. J.E. Knowles takes on lesbianism and a whole lot more in this novel of a nuclear family gone nuclear. She explores the damage done by the panicked, blatant homophobia that runs like a lit fuse through America. Her first novel is impressive in its characters, construction and evidence of storytelling talent. I hope we’ll be reading a lot more from Ms. Knowles."
-- Lee Lynch, author of Sweet Creek and The Amazon Trail
Thanks for reading.
