Sometimes I call UNDERTOW the Little Blue Book That Could because it keeps landing on lists years after it launched (not that I’m complaining). Of course, then my friends remind me that the sucker weighs close to a pound and is nearly 100,000 words long, so “little” ain’t so little. Pfft – details. […]
Back in 2013, before Undertow officially launched, I wandered into Titcomb’s Bookshop in Sandwich Massachusetts and happened to come face-to-face with owner Vicky Titcomb.
