I am utterly delighted to announce that It Will Just Be Us has been optioned (movie or TV series TBD) by Ill Kippers, the production company owned by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones’s Jaime Lannister), to be co-produced by Jeffrey Chassen and Abby Ex.
Nikolaj had this to say about the book: “We were extremely excited when we discovered this book. It is one of the most original haunted house stories that we’ve read or seen. Jo Kaplan’s voice is grounded but compelling, and just down-right scary! And the adjacent historically-based story lines about slaves escaping to a land thought otherwise uninhabitable, along with the message that the past can come back to haunt you, seemed incredibly timely and we were inspired.”
The week leading up to the release of It Will Just Be Us on September 8 was a lot of fun, with reviews and guest posts on a bunch of great blogs. Here’s where you can go back and find all of the posts for the blog tour:

In light of these unprecedented times, Crooked Lane Books has had to push back the release date just a bit. Hopefully this is good news, so that the book will come out at a time when it is safer to go to bookstores!
The new release date is September 8, 2020
I truly apologize to anyone who was looking forward to reading it in August, and I hope that you will not mind the extra month’s wait. I plan to do something special online on August 11, which was the original release date, which will include a sneak peek of the book. Stay tuned!
Because of the new date, we’re also currently rescheduling signing events. Keep an eye on future newsletters for the latest info.
