I love reading and analyzing and synergizing critiques for my fellow writers group members. I love celebrating their great successes! There's something really cool about being in on the story long before the world gets to be. It's like a secret I just can't wait to finally share.
I finally get to share! Author extraordinaire Janet Fox is super close to a much anticipated release of her newest novel Sirens. As many of you know, Janet has two much acclaimed historical YA novels already out there - Faithful, set in early 1900's Yellowstone Park, and Forgiven, at the time of the great San Francisco earthquake. Well, Sirens is just as cool. This story is set in the 1920's in New York City. It takes the reader into the world of gangsters and speakeasys, but gives so much more than that! Janet weaves a mystery driven by the love and loyalty of a sister for her brother. Oh, there's also some romance, and a tiny bit of a ghost story.
Sirens is a fantastic book folks, ready to hit the stores on Thursday, November 8. For all my Bozeman friends, Janet is hosting a book-launch party at the Country Bookshelf on that night - November 8th - and everyone is invited! Come meet Janet, check out Sirens, have some treats, and win a prize. You can even come dressed in your favorite 1920's attire. The party will run from 7:00 until 9:00. Hope to see you all there!
Writing for children is a passion - along with reading kid's books, writing plays for kids, and teaching kids how to write!
