At long last, the novel I have affectionately been calling "Untitled Vaudeville Story" now has a real, honest-to-goodness title, thanks to the brighter-minds-than-mine at Berkley. And it is.....
Dancing at The Chance
Yay! It's kind of a play on the phrase because the heroine is a vaudeville chorus girl who dances at a venue called The Chance Theatre. See how clever that is? The story takes place in 1907 New York, and in addition to a fun cast of fictional characters, there are critical roles played by Florenz Ziegfeld and pioneering moviemaker Edwin Porter. I had so much fun researching this one.
Oh, and there's more news, too. Those wonderful people Berkley have decided to re-release THE BELLY DANCER in mass market paperback, probably in March, which would be a month before DANCING AT THE CHANCE releases in April 2012.
Very exciting stuff!
