Dear Readers: This week is the anniversary of the hardcover publication of The Supremes At Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat, so it’s a great time for me to announce the upcoming publication of The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues and to show off the beautiful new cover. Odette, Clarice, and Barbara Jean, along with new characters, return to tell us of recent events in Plainview, Indiana and beyond. Coming June 20, 2017 from Henry Holt & Co., The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues will be available in Hardcover, E-Book, Large Print, and Audiobook. You’ll find a Preorder Button for the novel below and on the EdwardKelseyMoore.com website, or you can also preorder directly from your favorite bookseller. French, German, and Brazilian Portuguese translations are forthcoming, with more international editions to follow.
I’ll announce dates and locations of my book tour appearances soon. Can’t wait to catch up with old friends and make new ones this summer!

The New York Times Bestselling novel The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat is the marvelous tale of Odette, Clarice, and Barbara Jean... Through marriage, children, happiness and the blues, these strong, funny women gather each Sunday at the same table at Earl’s diner for delicious food, juicy gossip, occasional tears and uproarious banter. With wit, style, and sublime talent, Edward Kelsey Moore brings together four intertwined love stories, three devoted allies, and two sprightly earthbound spirits in a warmhearted novel that celebrates friendship and second chances.
