Living By Ear

I am delighted to present a book by the mighty fine author, Mary Rowen!

Launching on September 16—LIVING BY EAR

Living by Ear, a women’s novel by Booktrope author Mary Rowen, is being released on September 16, 2014.

Living by Ear is the story of a forty-six year old Boston musician named Christine Daley, who took a “short” break from music sixteen years ago, in order to marry and raise a family. Now, however, she’s rethinking everything. Chris adores her two teenage children, but her marriage has become a sham, and she longs to perform again.

So after filing for divorce, she does her best to reestablish her own rhythms—both in music and love—but quickly discovers she’s up against much more than she’d anticipated. Her kids seem to need her more than ever, and her soon-to-be-ex-husband is throwing every obstacle he can find into her way. Adding to the dilemma is the astounding progress in technology, which has made huge changes in both the music industry and the dating world. Is there room in the mix for Chris?

Full moon, new inspiration

Supermoon August 2014

The giant moon (no, I know, it just seems bigger due to some scientific explanation…) rose as we watched from 8200 feet, at the #SquawValley ski resort. Its bright light brought clarity to my #inspiration for the next book. Long swirling in my mind, like the clouds in the picture, the story burst through, like the light of the full moon last night. Yes, the clouds moved back in (block that metaphor! as it used to say in the New Yorker) but that light is there. I know what the next book will be about! And soon, so will you!
