"Harper Lee Praises John Ehle"

Here's an update from Press 53
In case you missed it, last week I posted a note that we received a letter from Harper Lee, renowned author of Pulitzer Prize-winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird. Ms. Lee has been a longtime admirer of John Ehle's work, and she praised his novel, The Land Breakers, as well as Mr. Ehle's talent as a writer. In part, she wrote, "John Ehle’s meld of historical fact with ineluctable plot-weaving makes The Land Breakers an exciting example of masterful story-telling. He is our foremost writer of historical fiction."

Sheryl called Ms. Lee and thanked her for reading The Land Breakers again and for sharing her valuable thoughts with us.

We have finished proofing the re-typed text and are currently laying out the cover. We are on track for a mid-July release date, a month prior to the On the Same Page kick-off party, which is set for Sunday, August 27.
