Giveaway copies mailed! Also an award.

I just finished my first Goodreads giveaway! More than 1,200 people signed up and I mailed out the 40 ARC copies over the last couple of days. As a debut author, it is still hard to imagine people across the country potentially reading my book, so this was a lovely way to make the book's publication real to me.

Sensitive by Pookie Sekmet
“Amy, almost five and already a secretive and acquisitive creature, devoted herself to eating the discarded chewing gum she found all over the city. Well, not exactly eat. She was old enough to understand the basic principle of gum. She would swap gum in her mouth for other gum throughout the day.”

“Then, remembering how thin Dad had been, I suggested nutritional deficiencies had contributed to his rapid deterioration. My brother responded, no lie: "Yeah, probably. You can't really live on Cheez-Its and oatmeal."

Reflected in their eyes is what they saw-a rogue turd bolus, swirling around and around and refusing to go down. If it's true that I'm locked in a decades-long death match with these people, I'm the one who's going to win. One down, one to go.”

“We are entering a new era in which the explosion of untested chemicals in our everyday lives means that conditions like mine are in turn destined to explode in frequency. People like me cannot be marginalized forever.”
