What's Going On
- Our latest musical novel, A Thousand Dances by Sara Holliday, is out as of Sept. 21! Here’s the Amazon link. The book is set in the early ’60s British blues boom. One of the key bands in the book is called The Detours—let us know Who you think they are. John Mayall loves A Thousand Dances: “Captures so much of the London club scene in the sixties and the music that emerged from it.” Check out the book trailer here.
- Don’t forget Savage Joy! Take a look at the trailer for the book. And here’s Savage Joy on Amazon. And … the Spotify playlist. We’re getting good reviews on Goodreads, and our first published review is up! Check it out on Foreword magazine. Oh, and a nice stack of signed copies at the Strand bookstore.
