News & Newsworthy
In this box you’ll get a vegan leather wallet that says “My Book Fund” on it and a hardcover of our August book group read, IT ALL COMES DOWN TO THIS by Therese Anne Fowler (or you can switch the book to a hardcover of SUMMER ON THE ISLAND or a hardcover of KEEP ME WARM AT CHRISTMAS). We’ll discuss it with her at August’s Book Group Meeting on August 25th. We’re also including a surprise item and a box (six cookies) of the super popular Janie’s Pecan Pie Crust Cookies. We’ve been wanting to feature these for a while, but they keep selling out! They’ve been voted one of the 20 best cookies spots in NYC, so we can’t wait for you to try them!
This box will sell out fast! First, we have the immensely popular and talented Elin Hilderbrand’s brand-new hardcover, THE HOTEL NANTUCKET, autographed! We’ll discuss it with her at July’s Book Group Meeting on July 28th. And just like with June’s box, we’re adding a second autographed book, because people are traveling and have more time to read—and there are so many great books coming out this summer! For the second book, you get your choice between an autographed trade copy of THE MESSY LIVES OF BOOK PEOPLE by Phaedra Patrick or the mass market release of my book from two years ago, ONE PERFECT SUMMER. Also included in this fabulous box will be a darling wooden tic-tac-toe game, which will make for some great decor on your coffee table or bookshelf. You can flip the lid around, and it becomes a cute wooden box, so you can use it either way. Besides the two books and this darling and unique game, you’ll get a surprise item! You also have the option to add-on Reading with Brenda Novak Issue No. 5.
This box will contain a 6” x 8”bamboo cutting board with my favorite summertime drink recipe engraved on it in my handwriting (you’ll use the backside for food preparation)! It will also contain two stainless steel stirring sticks (one pineapple and one our book group logo), a surprise item and TWO autographed books to fill your long summer days with plenty of pleasurable reading—an autographed trade copy of THE BOARDWALK BOOKSHOP by Susan Mallery (we’ll discuss it with her at June’s Book Group Meeting on June 23rd) and a mass market book by Melinda Curtis! You can also add the Summer Drinks Taste Book to your box!
SUMMER ON THE ISLAND hits bookstore shelves TODAY! I don’t know if I’ve ever been this excited about a release. Finally being able to go out on tour has made it a real celebration. Do you have your copy? If not, I hope you’ll grab one and escape to my fictional island.
I have THIRTEEN stops on the SUMMER ON THE ISLAND Book Tour in April, and I really hope you can join me at one or more stops to share in my excitement about this book (I think it’s my best yet) and help support the Independent Bookstores we’ve partnered with. We will bring in a local dessert shop and have some giveaways to make it a party!
I have a great year of reading planned and would like to invite you to take the 2022 Brenda Novak Reading Challenge. This challenge coincides with the books we’ll be reading in my online book group on Facebook and requires just one book per month. If you’re interested in joining the group as well as taking the challenge, I’d love to have you do so. You’ll never meet a friendlier or more supportive group of readers! And we always meet with the author of the book we are reading to discuss the story at the end of the month. Plus, if you read the designated book each month, you’ll be entered to win $100 to The Brenda Novak Store! In addition to that, if you complete all twelve books, you’ll get a FREE enamel pin, and you’ll be entered to win a dedication in one of my future releases!

I’m so excited to reveal the cover for my next trade release, SUMMER ON THE ISLAND. I love, love the way this story turned out, so I was really hoping for a nice cover, and I think my publisher did an excellent job! What do you think? Can’t you just feel the emotion on the woman’s face as she looks out to sea? This book won’t be released until April 5, 2022, but it’s already up for preorder—just in case you want to make sure it delivers to your house or your device on release day. 😉
