Number #7 this past week!

“Dear Sandi,
First I stay awake half the night because I cannot put your book down. Then I stay awake the rest of the night because I’m too scared to sleep! Had to take a mental rest from it a couple of days to avoid psychotherapy, drug addiction and alcoholism. This is the best read in years by far!” –Linn Birkeland Seim, Norwegian expat in Suzhou, China

Advance Praise

“Rich in vivid characters, and written with great imagination and intelligence, THE BLACK ISLE is a remarkable novel. A haunting book, mesmerizing in its beauty, which stayed with me long after I finished the last page.”

–Judith Freeman, author of The Long Embrace and Red Water

“The narrator of THE BLACK ISLE recounts her tales of fantastic events — erotic, supernatural, horrific — so convincingly that Tarot cards might as well be baseball cards in her book. An irresistible feat of storytelling, THE BLACK ISLE blends what Midnight’s Children did for the former Bombay with what Dorothy did for Oz.”

— Tom Carson, author of Gilligan’s Wake and Daisy Buchanan’s Daughter
