Happy paperback on-sale day to Todd Johnson's The Sweet By and By - a novel that People named a "great read for your book club" pick and that bestselling author Adriana Trigiani called "heartfelt and stunning...a genuine page turner." I know many of you are already familiar with The Sweet By and By from my announcement of Todd's upcoming appearance to discuss the book on Book Club Girl on Air on April 26th. Today the Sweet By and By is on sale in paperback and Todd is setting off on a tour to promote it while his book is setting off on a blog tour as well!
Johnson's novel of five southern women who will change the way you think about friendship garnered wonderful attention when it was published in hardcover.

The paperback edition contains many of the letters that Todd received and they really add to the story once you've read it. The below video excerpts just a few of the letters that he received and is a wonderful testament to the story he tells.
