Book Club Mom’s Author Update: News from Joanne Kukanza Easley

Hi Everyone, I recently caught up with Women’s Fiction author Joanne K. Easely. Today she’s sharing her book news with all of you!

Author name: Joanne Kukanza Easley

Genre: Historical Women’s Fiction (20th Century)

Books: Sweet Jane, Just One Look, I’ll Be Seeing You

News: My imprint, Red Boots Press, will publish my third novel, I’ll Be Seeing You in October 2022. A saga spanning five decades, I’ll Be Seeing You, explores one woman’s life, with and without alcohol to numb the pain.

Young Lauren knows she doesn’t want to be a ranch wife in Palo Pinto County, Texas. After she’s discovered by a modeling scout at the 1940 Fort Worth Stock Show Parade, she moves to Manhattan to begin her glamourous career. A setback ends her dream, and she drifts into alcohol dependence and promiscuity. By twenty-four, she’s been widowed and divorced, and has developed a pattern of fleeing her problems with geographical cures. Lauren’s last escape lands her in Austin, where, after ten chaotic years, she achieves lasting sobriety and starts a successful business, but happiness eludes her.

Fast forward to 1985. With a history of burning bridges and never looking back, Lauren is stunned when Brett, her third husband, resurfaces, wanting to reconcile after thirty-three years. The losses and regrets of the past engulf her, and she seeks the counsel of Jane, a long-time friend from AA. In the end, the choice is Lauren’s. What will she decide?

I’ll also be re-releasing my first two books with better pricing.

  1. Joanne, you are on a roll. I admire authors who persist beyond the first book. It sounds as though your protagonist’s story spans a long arc. As in memoir, novels can show a character’s transformation. I guess I’ll have to read your book to find out. Thanks, Barbara for showcasing this accomplished author today.
