A little more than a month from now the new Edward Kelsey Moore novel, with new adventures for the Plainview Supremes, will land on bookstore shelves. Mother’s Day arrives quite soon... is there a woman in your life who would love a great book? As you likely know, the first Supremes novel, The Supremes At Earl's All-You-Can-Eat, would make a great Mother’s Day gift for someone special in your life -- and reading it paves the way for even more enjoyment of its sequel, The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues, which can be preordered right now. Hundreds of book clubs across the U.S. (and beyond!) have included The Supremes At Earl’s in their discussions -- Lucy Sussex in her review for the Sydney Morning Herald summed it up this way: "Moore writes the interwoven stories of three Afro-American women from the 1960s to the present. They are small-town mothers and wives, outwardly conventional, but with secrets. It could be the stuff of earnest tragedy, but Moore goes for comedy with an absurdist twist. Warm and insightful." The paperback edition of The Supremes At Earl’s may still be available at Barnes & Noble stores in some areas -- and check your local independent book store! There’s also time to order online for Mother's Day -- using an expedited delivery option.

The award-winning, 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 laughter. 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!
In The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues El Walker, the great guitar bluesman, returns to town -- even though he’d sworn never to set foot in Plainview, Indiana, again. As they listen to El sing the blues the "Supremes" (Odette, Clarice and Barbara Jean) have no idea how profoundly his arrival will affect their lives and those of the people they love. Ed Moore’s lively cast of characters, each of whom has already surmounted trouble and come into love, must learn this time not how to survive but how, fully, to live. And they do, serenaded by the bittersweet and unforgettable blues song El Walker plays, born of his own great loss and love. A touching and entertaining new novel of passions, family, and forgiveness.
“This book is a joy to read.”
