It’s always such fun to unbox agency copies of our client’s latest books.
Today, when I stopped at my mail store to pick up my agent copies of Joanne Bischof’s latest historical romance, SONS OF BLACKBIRD MOUNTAIN and opened it up so I could recycle the packaging on the spot, the mail clerk literally swooned at the cover when she peeked inside.
Of course I was happy to pass along a copy, promising that if she’s a fan of historical fiction (she is!) she’d really enjoy the story.
What I didn’t pass along are some of the “other” stories that came to mind: what the author was going through personally while writing it; why she chose to write a hero who uses American Sign Language, or ASL, to communicate; and that she felt compelled to try hard cider for research, but discovered she doesn’t really like it terribly much!!
Congratulations to you, Joanne. We’re proud to be a part of your stories — told and untold.
“Transported” seems to be one of the key words readers use when describing their response when reading Joanne’s books. Check out for yourself what first readers are saying about SONS OF BLACKBIRD MOUNTAIN on Bookbub and Goodreads.
