Oprah Magazine includes Church of Marvels on its list of "10 Titles to Pick Up Now." And next to Willie Nelson! *faints* (June 2015)

My Book Notes playlist is up at Largehearted Boy. You can read about (and listen to) the music that inspired me while I was writing the novel. (Streamable on Spotify.)

Paste Magazine calls the book "a creation of striking visceral impact from a novelist of unmistakable storytelling gifts." 

The Kansas City Star says it's an "utterly captivating first novel."

And BookPage describes it as "utterly electrifying." As a first-time novelist who had no idea what to expect on pub day, I'm grateful for such intelligent, inquisitive, engaging reviews.

And finally: Book Cake!
