Hey Book Lovers of the World — The Memory Box Book Club Tour is about to go GLOBAL! You may know I’ve been traveling (virtually) nationwide these past few months attending book clubs that read The Memory Box. Well, I’m about to attend my 1st book club in the UK and YOU’RE INVITED! If you, or someone you know, has read The Memory Box and would like to join me (and the rest of the world) for a book discussion, sign up here (it’s free). There’s a chat room for live interaction, doesn’t that sound like fun? So ask your burning questions, postulate your theories or just be a fly on the wall. We’ll talk about the behind the scenes of writing The Memory Box, we’ll dive deep into the thematic elements and moral dilemmas, we’ll chat about publishing, what’s next, and anything you want to talk about! Feel free to share this with anyone you think may like to tune in on Sunday, November 16 (yes, this Sunday) at 2pm EST, 11am PST, 7pm UK time. I’d love to see you there! Cheers. B.Y.O.S. (Bring your own SnoBalls…)

Don’t quote me on this, but someone just told me that you can get the Kindle version of The Memory Box today for only $2.99. That’s crazy. All the thrills, chills, twists and turns for $2.99?? AND the shocking ending?? Well, no. Sadly, you don’t get the last chapter for that special price of $2.99. But still, that’s a great buy. Only kidding! Of course you get the last chapter! But sadly, that’s ALL you get. You don’t get the beginning. Or the middle. But still, that’s a freaking amazing price. Only kidding! Of course you get the whole dang thing! The thrills, chills, twists, turns, AND the shocking ending. Now that’s what I call an unpassupable, freaking amazing great deal. AND did you know that you can read a Kindle on any device? Yes. Yes you can. Just download the Kindle app. And Viola! or Voila! (I always mix up those two, but thought I’d leave it for all you flower and/or string instrument lovers out there…) Just download the app and Bam! you can be reading The Memory Box before lunch. Or, if you’re like me, you’ve already eaten lunch, so, before dinner!

It was a nasty night in New Orleans. Torrents of rain–at once pounding and windswept. Filling and rising. We were sheltered, on the floor. The carpet was damp. My clothes were matted beneath me.

That night was unforgettable. But, the best part of the story happened ten years later in New York City, 2005.

It was the first day of the fall semester at The New School. I registered for a writing class as a continuing ed student. It had been over twenty years since I was in school, back then a psych major. I had recently started writing a novel (it chose me, I did not choose it) and it was time to decide what to do with this living, breathing thing that had taken over my life.

I took a seat somewhere in the middle of the tiny classroom and noticed, as the others trickled in, many of them looked like freshman. It would be hard to blend–best not do anything to bring attention to myself. continue reading

San Francisco Book Review Gives THE MEMORY BOX 5 Stars!

Holy-pinch-myself-moment-of-the-day! The “San Francisco Book Review” gives THE MEMORY BOX 5 Stars! “… be prepared to toss that suburban fairy tale away, grab onto the steering wheel, and hope that you get through this obstacle course with all of your mental faculties . . . [the author] shows tremendous talent and courage in her creation of a powerful dichotomy, reaching beyond boundaries.” I think I’ll faint now. No, wait, first let me read it again … then I’ll faint.

She is particularly annoyed with Gabrielle, who has a habit of ranking other stay-at-home Moms in Lincoln Elementary School by the amount of interesting hits their names generate in a Google search. Too bad Caroline’s search for her own name results in only two boring hits, all related to the seemingly trivial contributions she has made to her community. Things go haywire with her life on the day she decides to type her maiden name into Google and finds some news that changes everything.

However, this simple tale is not exactly what the author Eva Lesko Natiello has in mind for the readers of The Memory Box, continue reading
