Wow! Jill Block's first novel, The Truth About Parallel Lines, is a real treat and on that you shouldn't miss. I am always happy to talk to an author on the release date of their book (June 4th) -- especially when it is their first book. It is such an exciting day and I am happy to know that I will forever be a part of their life.
I remember when I read Jill's short story, Safety Rules, I was so disappointed that it was not longer. I felt she could have gone on for another two hundred pages and kept me captivated with her writing. She's that good! (That short story is in the brilliant anthology, Alive in Shape and Color 17 Paintings by Great Artists and the Stories They Inspired,)
Get this book -- you are in for a real treat!

When you finish Jill's book, get Alive in Shape and Color - 17 Paintings and the Stories They Inspired.
In this anthology Lawrence Block has gathered together some of the greatest authors, including Joyce Carol Oates, Lee Child, Michael Connelly, David Morrell, and Jeffery Deaver. Each was asked to select a painting that inspired them. Jill's story is the first one in the book and was inspired by Art Frahm's Remember All the Safety Rules.
You will love this book -- and it makes a perfect Father's Day gift.
