Savage Girl might never be an Oprah Pick. But that doesn’t mean the book doesn’t rank some standing in O The Oprah Magazine.
A friend of mine mentioned that she read the glossy’s April 2014 issue and saw Savage Girl highlighted there as one of “Ten Titles to Pick Up Now.” She probably noticed this while sitting in the pedicure chair of her local nail salon. Anyway, that is where I usually thumb through O.
The issue includes such salient topics as “When Is It OK to Lie?” and “Want to Get Gorgeous?” Both questions that actually have much bearing on Bronwyn’s various quandaries in my novel. I think the savage girl would likely be fascinated by O. She would probably eventually find herself on Oprah’s show, also, buoyed up on waves of fandom.
I tear out scraps of paper from magazines I find in nail salons, hair salons, doctors’ offices, vet waiting rooms. Do you? Enough people do that, put the scrap in their pocket, go to a book store, touch the novel’s jacket – one reader described the feel of it as “butter” – and take it home, and Oprah may well make it a Pick someday.
