"Ladies Who Lunch," successfully launched, audiobook out now...
This just in: Ladies Who Lunch has enjoyed a healthy, satisfying launch. The debut novel by Josef Woodard, veteran music/arts scribe, musician/songwriter and general creative mischief-maker, was officially released on April 20th on the Household Ink imprint. Book-christening events, in the hometown of Santa Barbara, Calif. included a zoom-versation via Chaucer's Books, a signing-reading at the Mesa Bookstore’s 4th anniversary wingding (both events facilitated by author/Mesa Bookstore owner DJ Palladino), and the support of a generous contingent of customers and curiosity seekers.
Self-described as a satirical and possibly Gonzo romance novel, with mid-90s Los Angeles and showbiz buzz as recurring characters, “Ladies Who Lunch” had the Santa Barbara press chiming in:
Santa Barbara Independent, feature by Matt Kettman, link
Santa Barbara News-Press, story by Madison Herneisen, link
Montecito Journal (Richard Mineards’ column), link
Chaucer’s discussion and reading, via zoom, with Mike Takeuchi and moderator DJ Palladino, link
Upcoming plans for Ladies include the release of an audiobook version, to be released on June 25, with narration by Katrina Leffler and available on Audible and other platforms. In addition to being presently available in the digital omniverse, as e-books and book books, at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other portals (including our own home-brewed page www.ladieswholunch.me), we are proudly offering the book in the old school forum of fine brick & mortar book outlets worthy of our support and love, in Southern California, and soon, beyond.
