Two Tuesday New Releases

We can’t wait to crack the spines on these two new releases available on Tuesday, September 18, 2012:

The Cutting Season by Attica Locke Book Cover

The Cutting Season
By Attica Locke
Hardcover Fiction
Dennis Lehane Books / HarperCollins
384 pages

The Cutting Season by Attica Locke is the first novel to arrive under the new Dennis Lehane imprint at HarperCollins. Locke talked about her second book during a #blacklitchat Twitter interview hosted by Miranda Parker and moderated by Bernadette Davis on September 16. The author was inspired to write about Belle Vie, a fictional plantation that sits between Baton Rouge and New Orleans, after attending a wedding at a real Louisiana plantation. She had a visceral reaction to being a part of a beautiful celebration set against a backdrop of such historied suffering. This eerie coexistence between past and present sounds like a great starting point for a moss-draped murder mystery.

Fierce Loyalty by Sarah Robinson Book CoverFierce Loyalty: Unlocking the DNA of Wildly Successful Communities
By Sarah Robinson
Paperback Business
Hayfield Publishing

With the advent of social media, “community” has become little more than an overused buzzword. Everyone says they want to build and grow “community” (including Southern Spines!), but how do you go beyond getting people to buy your product or like your Facebook page? How do you attract and engage fiercely loyal groups of people to carry the flag for your brand, organization or cause? Author and seasoned business coach, Sarah Robinson, of Birmingham, Alabama, extracts and examines the DNA of Fierce Loyalty in this new business release. Learn more in this video interview with Jenny Schmitt of Cloudspark Strategic Communications.

    Thanks so much for spotlighting Attica’s book and #blacklitchat. It is especially great to see writers embrace Attica’s work. What we do at #Blacklitchat is spotlight quality fiction that is universal to all readers. Although these writers (myself included) create compelling stories for all audiences, we are often overlooked because there is a perception that our stories aren’t for everyone to read. So when you contacted me about your feature of #blacklitchat and THE CUTTING SEASON, it filled my heart with joy. Thank you again. :)
