Has your novel been published. I read Lightness of Water with my book club in Port Orange Fl but it was during COVID. We had talked back then. Please let me know if your novel is available.
Barbara, thank you so much for reading my short story collection! I’ve just finished a “final” polish of my novel, tentatively titled Filling the Big Empty. I’m sending it out now to potential agents and publishers. Cross your fingers alongside me that I’ll soon have a publishing contract in hand!
All best to you!
