Beetle Boy is on Netgalley

May 20, 2014

Tags: Beetle Boy

Beetle Boy is available for reviews and ratings on Netgalley. Very exciting to know it's now being read. By readers. People. Not just me. It's out there. It came from a dark place in me, but I am so proud of it and I LOVE the spare and edgy cover. Perfect for the content. A book about Charlie Porter. A book about an unlikely friendship. A book about nightmares. A book of heartfelt and necessary bleakness. Also my funniest (I think) book to date.
