Author: swiveltam :: Posted: Tue Apr 19, 2016 3:03 pm GMT

I was hoping you dances might be interested in some vintage SWING fiction? Written by a swing dancer for swing dancers!!!

Kindle Scout has accepted my historical fiction (WWII swing dance) novel: The Girl in the Jitterbug Dress.
I am asking two-minutes of your time to click on the link and nominate/vote for my novel. You are NOT agreeing to buy, only saying it sounds interesting. I've worked for a couple years on this novel and hope to get a publishing contract with Kindle Scout.

If you have a FB page or GROUP that would be an AWESOME place to share?

About The Girl in the Jitterbug Dress
The past doesn’t always stay in the past. Sometimes it comes to life on the dance floor.
