LOVE WARRIOR is an Oprah Book Club Pick!

Fantastic news: LOVE WARRIOR by Glennon Doyle Melton is the new Oprah Book Club pick!

This astonishing memoir depicts Melton’s journey after she discovers her husband’s infidelity and uses her grief and anger as a path to her own redemption. LOVE WARRIOR captures the beauty that unfolds when one woman refuses to settle for good enough, stops numbing or denying her pain, and makes her own rules for love and life. Harpo Films has optioned the film and television rights to the book.

“To have Oprah Winfrey — the woman who taught the world not to fear raw, intimate discussions – help introduce LOVE WARRIOR to the world feels like magic to me,” said Glennon Doyle Melton. “I trust Oprah, and I’m honored.”

Watch the video announcement from Oprah:

The cross-platform book club selection kicks off with Oprah’s interview with Melton in the October issue of O, The Oprah Magazine (on sale September 13). Oprah.com will feature a reading guide as well as Oprah’s personal thoughts about the book, and the official Oprah’s Book Club group on Goodreads, will feature content and encourage discussions about the new book club selection.

Glennon appeared on “CBS This Morning” today and the pick got media pick-up in USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, and the Chicago Tribune. She’ll appear on OWN’s “Super Soul Sunday” on 9/11, then do a Facebook Live chat with Oprah immediately after the show.

A Gem On Our Radar: GUTSHOT

What is a gem? A gem is a title that we hadn’t necessarily been tracking but the superlative praise rolling in is telling us to take a second look!

Amelia Gray’s collected stories in GUTSHOT, which is receiving wonderful praise, is just that gem:

“Strange, fable-like, and physical, Gray’s stories are driven by uncanny forces and set in organic yet unnatural worlds. Gray dazzlingly renders the wide array of human experience in these potent, haunting stories.” Publishers Weekly, boxed & starred review

“The best of Gray’s stories find that balance between devastation and humor and navigate an uneasy territory with agility; in this book, there are many that reach that mark.” — Kirkus Reviews

The New Yorker excerpted Amelia Gray’s story “Labyrinth” (read it here) and ran a terrific interview with Gray on their Page Turner blog.

Keep an eye out for more upcoming coverage of GUTSHOT in O Magazine, Marie Claire, the Chicago Tribune, Huffington Post, a Barnes & Noble Review, and more.
