New York, NY – WEBWIRE

Macmillan Publishers announce today that Chip Cheek’s debut novel, Cape May, (April 30, 2019; Celadon Books; $26.99) is its Winter 2019 Book Brag selection. The novel is a part of Celadon Books’ inaugural list of titles. Cape May has also been selected as an Indies Introduce title, and was called one of Parade Magazine’s 12 Big Fiction Reads Every Book Club Will Love in 2019.

“Cape May was the first acquisition made for Celadon and it exemplifies what we are looking for: smart, singular books that entertain and make the reader think about the book long after it is finished,” said Deb Futter, Senior Vice President and Co-Publisher of Celadon Books.

Macmillan Book Brag is a company-wide program created to champion select in-house buzz titles to the larger reading public. The program focuses on building excitement for favorite reads and getting them directly into the hands of new readers through grassroots marketing efforts.

“The enthusiasm and dedication within the sales team has been clear from the start and we are all proud to be a part of this project and excited to see it grow,” said Jenn Gonzalez, Executive Vice-President of Sales, Macmillan.

In-house praise for Cape May includes: “Cape May is Marilynne Robinson on a gin-and-tonics bender with the dirty parts of a Henry Miller novel, and some decadent Fitzgerald characters crashing the story and leaving an epic disaster in their wake.” -- Mike Slack, Field Sales Representative

“A beautifully written tale of a couple’s journey through a damaged marriage. I felt all of the excitement, sorrow, joy, and pain of the characters. Impossible to put down, it is a read that you’ll be eager to discuss with others!” -- Catherine Marvin, Senior Manager, Communications.
