Drum roll, please … here’s your very first look at the cover of Cherry Bomb, the forthcoming novel by new Dogwood Press author Susan Cushman!

Coming in October 2017!
We can’t wait! It’s a dynamite debut, and Susan, a very talented and versatile writer, is already on the road in support of her book Tangles and Plaques: A Mother and Daughter Face Alzheimer’s. Big crowds have already met her at Lemuria Books in Jackson, MS, Square Books in Oxford, MS, and Burke’s Books, in Memphis, TN. And Susan has another book coming out this spring: A Second Blooming: Becoming the Women We Are Meant to Be. Watch for both!

Joe, Susan, and John at Lemuria on March 3.

John Floyd keeps on trucking. In addition to making spring stops to support Dreamland, a new story of his called “Flag Day” appears in the new (Feb/May) edition of The Strand Magazine. And he is closing in on a whopping 100 of his short, humorous mysteries gracing the pages of Woman’s World, too. 

Look for it wherever you buy magazines!

Valerie Winn is making good progress on her follow-up novel to Forsaking Mimosa. I’m working on a new novel as well and am making good use of the creative juices–there’s nothing quite like getting a phone call in the middle of being deep into writing a scene and suddenly having to speak coherently with a real person about a real matter. Hey, we writers wouldn’t have it any other way!
John and I will both hit several Books A Million stores this spring, and all of us are really looking forward to the third annual Mississippi Books Festival in Jackson on August 19. We’ve already ordered some great weather: hot, of course, but a minimal chance of a late-day storm. Put the date on your calendar and plan to stop by the Dogwood Press tent!
