- Camille DiMaio’s second novel, Before the Rain Falls, publishes this Tuesday. This is the perfect book for people who read Leila Meacham, Penny Vincenzi historical fiction/family sagas. And oh my, this gorgeous cover!
- Curtis Sittenfeld is writing a new novel told from the point of view of Hillary Rodham, in which (as she did in real life) she turns down marriage proposals from Bill Clinton, then ultimately turns him down once and for all, and how her life spins out from there. I love political novels so I am excited for this one!
- James Patterson and President Bill Clinton are writing a thriller titled, The President is Missing, to be released in June 2018. Here’s the cover:
- NYT Bestselling Author Lauren Willig revealed the cover of her next book this week, The English Wife, which will publish in early January, 2018. I love it when a cover “feels” like the title. Isn’t it gorgeous?
- The paperback of The Afterparty by Anton DiSclafani comes out this Tuesday with a FABULOUS cover. This is an amazing book!
The Gift Mom Really Wants This Year
KFC, you know of extra crispy chicken fame, has published a FREE romance novel just in time for Mother’s Day with the perfect title, Tender Wings of Desire. Business Insider quotes George Felix, KF’s US Director of Advertising saying, “The only thing better than being swept away by the deliciousness of our Extra Crispy Chicken is being swept away by Harland Sanders himself,” “So this Mother’s Day, the bucket of chicken I get for my wife will come with a side of steamy romance novella. Dinner is taken care of and she’ll have the time to escape her busy schedule.”
I think this is hilarious!
