ACCLAIMED LOUISIANA AUTHOR, FLETCHER MCHALE, BRINGS #1 FICTION, “SAVE US A SEAT,” TO TINCY’S CORNER IN VILLE PLATTE, NOV. 3

Central Louisiana author, Fletcher McHale, released her debut fiction novel, “Save Us a Seat,” to rave reviews last month, reaching as high as #1 Fiction and #4 Overall Book on LuLu.com’s Top 100 List. Fletcher will be visiting and signing books at “Christmas on the Corner,” held Sunday, November 3, from 10am-2pm, at Tincy’s Corner, located at 676 Kerrel Vidrine Road in Ville Platte. 337-351-5337.

Set in the fictional town of Bon Dieu Falls, Louisiana, “Save Us a Seat” follows the adventures of Carrigan Whitfield, the young wife of the much sought after and wealthy Jack Whitfield. Carrigan’s days revolve around having fun with her best friends, Ella Rae and Laine, playing sandlot softball and juggling an affair…or two. But on an idyllic summer day, a shocking and unexpected discovery turns her ‘perfect’ life into a tumultuous storm and transforms a girl into a woman.

Drawing upon small town life and a host of colorful characters, “Save Us a Seat” delivers both laughs and tears, woven together with McHale’s superb storytelling and witty dialogue.

“In a world where ‘Pretty Little Liars’ and ‘Gossip Girl’ reign supreme and define what female relationships are supposed to look and act like, it was refreshing to read a story that is the true definition of the phrase ‘best friend forever,’” raves one Goodreads.com reviewer.

Although a work of fiction, McHale draws upon real life experiences and friendships in “Save Us a Seat.” McHale states, “Growing up in the country between two small towns, I had the best of both worlds. Everything I hold dear to me is here…the area, the people, the traditions. I like that we all grew up together, 1st grade on. I don’t know that you ever really KNOW anybody if not for that. Their memories are your memories.”

Copies of “Save Us a Seat” are available for purchase at Tincy’s Corner and other select bookstores and gift shops in Louisiana. The book is also available on BarnesandNoble.com, Amazon.com, and LuLu.com. Visit www.fletchermchale.wordpress.com for additional information.
