Advance Review: Will Poole’s Island

I am representing Vermont author, Tim Weed, for his publicity book launch campaign for his stunning debut novel, a YA historical fiction which is set on the island of Nantucket. Tim will be appearing at the Nantucket Book Festival on Saturday June 21st, where he will be under the authors’ tent signing books most of the day. Here is a first review of his book:

Tim Weed

WPI Hi-Res Cover ArtRon Samul of the New London Patch has written a thoughtful advance review of Will Poole’s Island. Here’s an excerpt:

Will Poole’s Island is more than a coming of age story . . . the reader is left with a longing to find that place, that moment when everything is right and the everything is possible.

Background
In mid-2012 Julia Ferrari became the sole proprietor of the Golgonooza Letter Foundry and Press after 30 years of partnership with her husband, Daniel Carr. The premature death of Carr two years ago deprived Julia of both her life partner and her business partner, a double loss from which she is now beginning to emerge with renewed purpose. It has not been easy but she is determined to continue the press, or some incarnation of it, on her own.

Julia is not alone in her situation, in fact she is…
