Leslea Tash’s BIRD AFTER BIRD – get it now!

I don’t do this kind of thing very often, but when Leslea “Red” Tash puts out a new book, I’m going to take notice, and I’m going to spread the word. Tash and I have worked on numerous projects together, including the best-selling (on Kindle) holiday anthology LET IT SNOW, the steampunk comic STEAMPUNK ORIGINALS, and on a YA novel that hasn’t quite made its way into the world yet. Suffice it to say, she is aces, and one of the finest writers I know. One of my favorites. So do yourself a favor and pick up her new book. I did.

BIRD AFTER BIRD is the story of two warriors:

Laurence Byrd grew up a lanky Hoosier kid with the good/bad fortune of having the same name as the state’s perennial basketball legend. With a better affinity for dogs than sports or school, he ends up in the Army instead of the Chicago art school of his dreams. Still, his service to our country is something he can be proud of–until an argument with the girl who means the world to him results in a series of events that blows his life apart. With no one left to understand him, black sheep Laurie pours out his heart into letters and drawings he never intends to send–then he folds them into paper cranes that he leaves behind like messages in little winged bottles. He never dreams someone might be finding them.

And she’s even been swell enough as to offer up a special deal for all youse peeps. So check-it-the-funk-out!

It’s an achingly beautiful book that will touch everyone who reads it and make you want to become a birder. This is the first in the series and I can’t wait for the next one. Go fall in love with Laurie and Wren.
