IN THIS MOMENT: NEWS + MEDIA


Thank you, Canada! IN THIS MOMENT spent 7 weeks on both The Globe & Mail and Toronto Star bestseller lists.

Thanks to the Toronto Star for this fantastic review of IN THIS MOMENT — “Literary titans such as Updike and Cheever have brilliantly trodden this path of suburban sexual/emotional angst before. Karma Brown now impressively joins their ranks.”

Publishers Weekly calls IN THIS MOMENT a “…meticulous study of unresolved guilt and buried secrets…” and an “…admirably layered portrait of how love can bend and still not break…”!

Read about what inspired IN THIS MOMENT, and what Karma hopes readers take away from the book in this Publishers Weekly Author Spotlight interview.

IN THIS MOMENT was included in Redbook Magazine’s 20 Must-Read Books of Spring. Here’s what they had to say: “Another captivating read by Karma Brown, IN THIS MOMENT will have readers thinking long after they finish the last page.”
