From the Booking Desk:
It is no secret that I am a fan of short story anthologies. I have done the cover reveal for quite a few of them over the years and some of my favorites are those that are inspired by the works of a particular musician or group. Josh Pachter has edited a few collections like that and he has asked me once again to host the cover reveal for the latest: Only The Good Die Young, inspired by the oeuvre of the Piano Man himself, Billy Joel.
Trust me when I say this is a stunningly beautiful and evocative cover…Let’s take a look.
Josh tends to have his contributors each choose a song from a different album by the chosen musician, so in the case of Only The Good Die Young, since he has released twelve albums, there are twelve stories inspired by the songs of Billy Joel.
The contributors to the collection are:
- Michael Bracken
- Jeff Cohen
- David Dean
- John Floyd
- Barb Goffman
- James D.F. Hannah
- Rick Helms
- Robert Lopresti
- Jenny Milchman
- Terrie Farley Moran
- Richie Narvaez
- Josh Pachter
Available later this month from Untreed Reads, Only The Good Die Young can be pre-ordered by following this link. You can find out more about Josh Pachter here.
