The National Book Awards are finally here—aka the Oscars of Publishing! So many wonderful, beautiful books and collections are nominated tonight, but our heart belongs to Heartland by @sarah_smarsh, pictured here with her thrilled agent Julie Barer. All of us at TBG are so very proud of you, Sarah.
Happy pub week to @michellehodkin’s stunning sequel to The Becoming of Noah Shaw, the second book in the companion series to the NYT bestselling Mara Dyer series, in which legacies are revealed, lies are unraveled and new allegiances are forged. Noah’s reckoning is here and believe us, you don’t want to miss it! @simonteen
“People are either useful or dangerous,” she said. “One or the other.” “Which one am I?” I said. “You’re both.” Happy happy pub day to Andrew Simonet’s brilliant YA debut Wilder. “A page-turning, mind-twisting adventure.”—Francisco X. Stork. Thank you for the beautiful publication, @fsgbooks.
Thrilled to see the gorgeous review for @southerndiscomfortbook in the Atlanta-Journal Constitution today. An all out rave but here are some highlights: “This is an unforgettable Southern story of a certain era, through and through... What makes ‘Southern Discomfort’ especially fine is Clark’s first-rate, efficient writing and swift, captivating storytelling. A sharp and sensitive observer as a kid, Clark slaps us down into an authentic time and place...’Southern Discomfort’ ultimately proves to be hugely satisfying comfort food. It sings brightly to the incredible strength of family ties and the great power of love.” ❤️
@nicolekidman introduces fellow Australian Liane Moriarty at one of our favorite bookstores, @parnassusbooks. Such an incredible night. Many thanks for your ❤️, Nashville! #lianemoriarty #nineperfectstrangers
Flashback Friday: three years ago today we celebrated our wonderful colleague and resident expert on all things millennial @manadurphy’s first sale as an agent (@danyakukafka’s masterful, haunting debut, Girl in Snow). You’re a rock star, Dana!!!
Happy happy pub day to Patricia Harman’s Once a Midwife, which returns to Hope River and the town’s beloved midwife Patience Hester. As New York Times bestselling author Alicia Bay Laurel writes, “We all need role models like Patience—fiercely loyal, brave, and forgiving.”

It’s here it’s here!! Happy Happy Happy Pub Day to Liane Moriarty and her latest must-read NINE PERFECT STRANGERS!! Thank you for the great segment @cbsthismorning! As @entertainmentweekly says: “It’s like an Agatha Christie country house mystery set in the Australian outback...Moriarty has a way of nesting inside her characters’ heads and bringing them to life in a way that’s not just relatable but illuminating; we know these people not because they’re archetypes but because they’re so specifically, universally human...Good old fashioned storytelling full of feeling....” 📚 🧘♀️ 🇦🇺 🔥
