I'm thrilled to share with you a first look at the cover of my next novel which releases 2/7/23. Receiving the cover from the publisher made the book feel "real" for me, and I think the designer did a great job with it. What do you think?
More than any other book so far, I am excited to share this story with the world. Songs for a Sunday will be my fifth novel. but it's my first split-time story, taking place in both the present day and in the 1960s. One of my favorite things about this story is that it's set in my county, in the city of Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
As you can probably tell from the cover and title, Songs for a Sunday includes a "musical" theme. (See the sheet music superimposed on the image?) I love to sing, so that's another reason the story is special to me.
And here's a little about the book:
1963: Twenty-year-old Annie has dreams of managing a dance studio in her hometown of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where she’s trained since childhood, and of marrying her high society boyfriend. When her younger sister, who has special needs, gets pregnant, Annie’s dreams must be put on hold for the sake of family.
Present Day: Stay-at-home mom of four Missy Robbins has always played second fiddle to her baby sister, Erica, and at thirty years old she’s had enough. When given an opportunity, Missy steps out of her comfort zone to prove she’s as good a singer as Erica. Her new pursuit puts Missy on a path of self-discovery and of reclaiming the faith she left behind, but her world is turned upside down when family secrets come to light. Can Grandma Annie’s hidden past somehow mend the bond between Missy and her sister?
I'm so excited to share this story with you!
I'll be looking for people to help spread the word soon. If you'd like to be on my launch team for Songs for a Sunday, please message me!
