Happy news, with a Twitter twist

Our new editor Laura Tisdel is so new – “How new is she?” Thank you, folks – her business cards still haven’t arrived. But that didn’t stop her from leaping into action last week, and buying a terrific debut novel at auction. We are all thrilled that Laura’s first acquisition brings Gabriel Roth to our list, with a novel called THE UNKNOWNS that is funny, sweet, and original, a heady delight from its first page to its last.

And here is where Twitter comes in: when Laura started reading THE UNKNOWNS, she emailed a copy to me, saying she was loving it so far. The author name rang a bell, and I realized that just the day before, I’d started following him on Twitter, after someone retweeted this:  @gabrielroth  There should be a German word meaning “something for which there should be a German word.” Which I thought was funny.  Who knew that a day later I’d be reading his novel, and two weeks after that, we’d be celebrating its future publication together. O, brave new, small world!
