Please join me in congratulating Patricia O'Sullivan on the release of her newest novel, Awesome Justice! I've waited such a long time to say that! I was honored to work with Patti on a developmental edit, a copyedit, and in designing the book's cover. Patti's fans know her as an author of historical fiction, but here she branches out into a new genre with a subject close to her heart: the clash of homosexuality and Christianity, specifically in the Deep South. Awesome Justice is a young adult novel focusing on the themes of tolerance and acceptance, or the lack thereof; what it means to be family, friends, and lovers; and having the courage to live life on one's own terms. Here's the book description:
And here's what Patti had to say about me in her acknowledgments:
And finally, thank you to my incredibly talented editor Jenny Quinlan, who believed in Austin's story and helped me turn it into a novel I can be proud of.
Ain't she sweet? That brought a tear to my eye. But I do believe in this novel. Austin's voice is authentic and he is instantly likable, and there is a colorful cast of standout supporting characters to help him on his journey to living openly as a gay man. I had a blast helping Patti bring Austin's story to life, and she worked really hard to make sure she was doing it right. I think she hit it out of the park.
Awesome Justice is available now for Kindle on Amazon, and you can add it to your Goodreads shelf. If you get a chance, stop by Patti's website and say hello!
