There are just two more months to wait until the U.S. will see THE SUPREMES AT EARL'S ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT on store bookshelves (with Germany and the United Kingdom to follow shortly afterwards)! A number of people have mentioned THE SUPREMES in their newsletters, news releases, and on their websites. We thank all of you for going to the effort. Three that have recently caught our eye:
An online newsletter from the independent bookstore -- Book Mouse, in Ottawa, IL
Tales from the Front Counter --
"I am very excited about Edward Kelsey Moore's The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat. This may be the favorite book for 2013. Watch for this title to come out this March. Mosh up Desperate Housewives, Fried Green Tomatoes, The Help, Steel Magnolias and you've got the soul of this book." Eileen F, Book Mouse
Bookspan's List of Top 13 New Books for 2013 --
"The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat by Edward Kelsey Moore -- This is one of those books you read that immediately becomes part of your life, the characters feel like old acquaintances, and you just know you'll share with all your friends as soon as you can."
Deborah S, Editor-in-Chief, Book-of-the-Month Club®
And lastly, how to creatively mention a new favorite book on a "Best Of" list -- while leaving it off the actual list:
My Favorite Reads of 2012: Books & Audiobooks --
"Inspired by reading year-end lists on other blogs, I’m posting my own. These are my favorite books that I read in 2012, but some were published earlier. I’m not including any books that aren’t published yet, like The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat by Edward Kelsey Moore, Knopf, 2013." Laurie C, a Massachusetts librarian (And she gets an extra nod for adding the book-cover image!)

A New Year -- A New U.S. Cover!
And it's a feast for the eyes!
Many of you who have been visiting this site, or following THE SUPREMES will have seen the earlier red/black/silver book cover -- well things have changed, and here's how it happened: When you begin reading THE SUPREMES you will quickly be introduced to Odette, Clarice, and Barbara Jean, the main characters of the novel. As the story unfolds we travel in time with them, from the 1960s into the 2000s. Along the way you learn quite a bit about Plainview, Indiana where the book is set, a vibrant town, which later becomes a small city -- about its citizens, and about its trees, its roads, houses, and inner workings. In a way the town of Plainview is the fourth main character of the narrative.... Once we realized this everyone began to wonder what Plainview could actually look like. And so, ladies and gentlemen, with a modest fanfare... presenting a completely new cover for the U.S. editions of THE SUPREMES AT EARL'S ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT.
