Cover Reveal: Radio Red

So far only people who signed up for our newsletter, or visited our last book signing, have gotten any more than a tease about my upcoming novel. Well, it's time for the rest of you to take a gander at Radio Red:

Our last two books were non-fiction: Images of America: Albion and Noble County, and Hoosier Hysterical: How the West Became the Midwest Without Moving at All. The latter was in conjunction with Indiana’s bicentennial, so it moved ahead of other projects. Emily and I worked hard on it, and we’re very proud of our baby.

But I started out in fiction, and now I’m going back: Torrid Books accepted my new novel, the romantic comedy Radio Red. Set in northwest Lower Michigan, it’s scheduled to come out March 7, 2017. We’re very excited! This is my first published work of fiction not set in Indiana (or in the Storm Chaser universe, although … it could be, who knows? After all, it’s another state. Never thought about that.)

Anyway, here's a look at the blurb, which is right there on the back cover:

Torrid accepted the book on September 20th, and I went by industry standard, assuming it would come out around a year later. But in very short order I filled out all the necessary paperwork, worked with artist Kelly Martin on the cover art, and got the galleys--the actual formatted manuscript, which I had to check line by line for errors. Much to my surprise, the book is due to come out on March 7th, a full six months earlier than I expected.

This will be our ninth published work! Wow.

congrats! Also check out my post about all romance. You might have books that are affected.

Yep--all three of my whiskey Creek Press books were up on those sites. *sigh*

Are those with an indie publisher? You might want to check with them to see what they're doing (Dreamspinner has contacted their lawyer because it sounded like royalties might not b e sent)

WCP is a mid-sized traditional publisher. I'll be checking with them, but they've generally got a pretty good handle on things.

That is fantastic! It's great to see your hard work (and I know you've been working long and hard at writing) paying off.

Thanks--it's been a long haul! I was writing pre-internet, pre-cell phone, pre-cable TV ... wow. Thank goodness I'm not still banging away on a typewriter, those days were the pits.
