That’s all for this week, but keep in mind that tomorrow is National Coffee Cake Day, and that coffee cake pairs very well with a good book.


Byte-Size Blair | November 24

We’re back with Byte-Size Blair, our weekly wrap-up of all things social media. If you’re not already following us on Facebook,Twitter, Tumblr, or Pinterest, give us a look.

Happy Turkey Week, everybody! We can’t believe the holiday season is here… or maybe we can, because we’ve been gifted with so much great book news. Obviously, our books were on the good list this year.

1. Maybe Minnesotans aren’t thrilled about their grape salad, but we couldn’t be happier that Well, Shut My Mouth! and Soul Food Odyssey (July 2015) author Stephanie L. Tyson was the chef behind North Carolina’s must-have Thanksgiving addition, according to The New York Times.

2. Speaking of 2015 titles, Tiya Miles, the MacArthur fellow behind our upcoming novel The Cherokee Rose, was featured with her husband in a great article in Montana State’s newsletter.

3. The Messy Desk contest is coming to an end, so make sure you “like” your favorite entries, because we are announcing the winner and runners-up on Tuesday, November 25.

4. Foreword Reviews featured Badass Civil War Beards for No Shave November (make sure to enter our #NSN contest!)

5. We’re happy to share space on this list with Jeni’s Ice Creams, but seriously… when are they going to open a storefront in Winston-Salem?

We know many of you hate to start celebrating Christmas before Thanksgiving has even arrived, but c’mon! This is too cute.
