Introducing: Stray with Elissa Sussman + Giveaway

Introducing: Stray with Elissa Sussman + Giveaway

As one does. I’ve been able to see the fascinating process of what a first-time novelist goes through unfold in front of me at our weekly coffee dates, and one of the things Elissa was most excited about was the cover, because that’s the part that’s completely out of the writer’s hands. Every week I’d ask her if she’d seen the design, and every week the answer was no. Until last week. And you guys, it was worth the… Read more »
