-- Pandamoon Publishing is pleased to announce that Cookeville, Tennessee author Jessica Dainty has signed with Pandamoon Publishing as a writer of Women’s Fiction aimed at the adult market. “In Jessica Dainty’s, The Shape of the Atmosphere
, we meet troubled teen, Gertie MacLarsen. After a family tragedy, Gertie’s alcoholic mother sends her to Willow Estate Sanatorium, a private mental institution where young Gertie is thrown into a world of hydro and shock therapy and dangerous hospital politics she is not prepared for,” stated Zara Kramer, Publisher of Pandamoon Publishing.
“Set against the historical backdrop of the early space race, The Shape of the Atmosphere
details Gertie’s emotional journey as she finds first love, acceptance, and a sense of family as she bonds with the other patients at Willow Estate,” Kramer added. “The Shape of the Atmosphere
is a riveting addition to Pandamoon’s growing catalog of Women Fiction titles, including The Long Way Home
by Regina West and the forthcoming, Beautiful Secret
by Dana Faletti.”
When asked why she chose Pandamoon, Jessica said, “When I spoke to Zara I felt she truly ‘got’ my book and wanted to make it the best it could be without changing the story I wanted to tell. The innovative approach to the book industry drew me in, and the passion for what they are doing just emanated out of everyone who contacted me. I love that the Pandas really operate like a family and are invested in mutual success.”
