  • Loewenstein's debut novel, Unmentionables, was the first release on our Kaylie Jones Books imprint and did very well for us.
  • Imprint curator Kaylie Jones, a successful writer, will help in the promotion. So the book essentially has two authors working full-time to promote alongside Akashic.
  • Similar to Unmentionables and Barbara J. Taylor's debut Sing in the Morning, Cry at Night, the book has great regional potential; the novel is set in Oklahoma during the Dust Bowl era (mid-1930s).
  • Loewenstein proved highly effective in promoting her debut and we will rely on her again to do events in bookstores, libraries, historical societies, etc.
  • Unmentionables was a MIBA Midwest Connections pick and received a starred Library Journal review.
  • We are also making this title available in a simultaneous hardcover edition.
