I Pine!

Pete Hautman just posted a cover pic of his newest book, Blank Confession, which he says will be available in November and I pine for it!

He says:

I’ve just shipped my latest novel off to my publisher. The original title was “Shayne,” a nod to Jack Schaefer’s classic western novel, Shane. But because almost no one born after 1970 remembers that book, my wise editor suggested an alternate title: Blank Confession. Look for it next November.

I can't really find any information about the premise of his new book, which is both refreshing and frustrating. Although I have found a post where Pete has created a Word Cloud for the book, to offer an insight:

Rawls, huh? I can't wait to hear more about this one.

Create your own Word Cloud for stuff here. Can you imagine a Word Cloud for Twilight?
Sparkle. Supra-sexual tension. Mundane chores.

I shouldn't point fingers because my blog's Word Cloud would be: Totally. Awesome. Just okay. Beverly Hills 90210.

This is interesting. Would you believe that we use the novel SHANE every year at the school where I teach for lower level seniors?! They love it. I'll have to look into this one. :-)

Shannon: Really? I haven't heard of the book but tells me that it's a precursor to Lonesome Dove? Kinda started the whole dark hero in the west thing? I have to say that it went on my TBR list when I learnt about it.

Have you read other Pete Hautman?

Shannon O'Donnell said...

No, I haven't. He's been added to my TBR list, though. I can't wait to try a few of his books. :-)

Well, I just did my blog's wordcloud -- the most used word? Book.

I laughed for about five minutes.
