Dear Book Lover,

New York Times bestselling author Connie Briscoe is back with her much anticipated sequel, SISTERS & HUSBANDS.

USA Today featured Connie in their summer books round-up in May.

AOL Black Voices proclaims a hit!

In her ’94 fiction debut, Briscoe introduced the world to literature’s savviest and sweetest sisters. Each was the quintessential modern woman—beautiful, smart, loaded with energy and sass, and woefully beset with man trouble. Set a decade later, SISTERS & HUSBANDS still finds the women fascinating: Baby girl Beverly has continued on her marriage-phobic way. But now she’s 39 and has snagged Julian, a brilliant, gorgeous man who is actually dependable and trustworthy. Yet the sister’s got issues; she’s plagued with doubts.

Will this skittish young lady’s third engagement be the charmed one that actually gets her down the aisle?

Connie Briscoe has been a full-time published author for more than ten years. Suffering from hearing loss since birth, Connie never allowed that to stop her from pursuing her dreams…writing. Briscoe stormed onto the literary scene in 1994 with Sisters & Lovers, selling over 700,000 copies. The book eventually became the basis for a television miniseries. Since she left the world of editing to become a writer, Connie’s work has appeared on the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Washington Post, Boston Globe, Boston Herald, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. Briscoe lives in the Maryland area.

Connie is touring this week and next. Stop by and visit if you can! See her schedule below.
