My Shoes Are Almost Here

Liza Monroy Inside My Brain

Welcome to October! SHOES’ publication date is right around the corner — a week from tomorrow. You can still pre-order here, though I’ve been encouraging folks to get it through their local independent booksellers. Mine’s Bookshop Santa Cruz and I love them and am so excited to be launching the book there next week. I’d love to hear from you all about your favorite independent booksellers and what makes them great.
The reviews are in, and mostly positive! Publishers Weekly and Booklist were incredibly warm. Kirkus critiqued the book but gave my mother some good life advice, along the lines of “back off…” Ha ha. And the current issue of Bust features a nice review too. If you’re on the West Coast, I hope to see you at one of my events!
