Jaime Manrique wins the 2019 BILL WHITEHEAD AWARD FOR LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT!

We are thrilled to share the news that Jaime Manrique has been named the recipient of the 2019 Bill Whitehead Award for Lifetime Achievement, presented by the Publishing Triangle, the association dedicated to amplifying and honoring books written by LGBT authors or with LGBT themes.
 
Manrique’s latest novel, Like This Afternoon Forever, is forthcoming this June on our Kaylie Jones Books imprint, and is already receiving some great prepublication praise! In the May 15 issue of Booklist, a review of the novel reads: “Manrique’s drama of a dangerous love affair in a world of blood, terror, displacement, and desperation grapples with profound and persistent conflicts.”
 
Like This Afternoon Forever is currently available to ship right away through our website, in both paperback and hardcover, and is available for preorder wherever books are sold.
