The precipice of publication

Just a few days before the release of UNEXPECTEDLY, MILO and some good news has been pouring in. 

The Hartford Courant’s review of the book was excellent:

We are happy to report there's been no sophomore slump for novelist Matthew Dicks, the Newington resident and West Hartford teacher who follows the success of his first novel, "Something Missing," with the funny, touching and very smartly written "Unexpectedly, Milo."

An online advertisement for UNEXPECTEDLY, MILO will be running for two weeks on Goodreads, a popular book-oriented website.

And then there was this amazing window display that my wife spotted in the local Barnes and Noble:


Looking forward to next Tuesday’s release!  It feels like years ago since I actually finished the book.
