It’s preorder time!

It’s THREE WEEKS until Publication Day and I could not be more excited to share A SONG FOR THE ROAD with the world! It is the story of a church musician who, a year after losing her entire family in a car accident, embarks on a cross-country musical road trip to honor their memory. It’s a story of hope and rebirth, of motherhood and daughterhood, friendship and forgiveness. Author Kerry Anne King said, “In a novel filled with music, heartbreak, and surprising laughter, Basi takes us on a journey that encompasses both unimaginable loss and the powerful resilience of the human heart. A book club must read.”

Many people don’t know that PREORDERS MATTER. They are added to a book’s release day sales numbers, and the strength of that number drives the book’s visibility (how much it gets “pushed”) on online retail sites.

So I have a favor to ask: if you are planning to buy a copy of A SONG FOR THE ROAD, would you consider doing it now, rather than waiting until release? (It’s a great mother’s day present for a book-loving mom!) As a thank you, I’ll send you a Spotify playlist I created that includes all the music mentioned in the book. It’s a diverse playlist, covering everything from church to Taylor Swift to classical to Argentine folk.

A SONG FOR THE ROAD is available at all your favorite retailers, but I’d love it if you’d consider purchasing from my local indie store, Skylark Bookshop. Brick-and-mortar bookstores add so much to their community, and I want to support them as much as possible. So as an extra bonus, any books preordered from Skylark Bookshop, my local indie, come with a bonus: your copy will be signed!

Just send me a note on email (kathleenbasi (at) gmail (dot) com with an order confirmation. And if purchasing is a financial hardship, consider requesting it at your local library. I’ll take that, too!

(And yes, you may feel free to share this post. Share widely!)
