On Tour 9/03/21-10/18/21 “Shooting Out The Lights” by Kim Fairley

Release Date: July 27, 2021 

About The Book:

Kim Fairley was twenty-four when she fell in love with and married a man who was fifty-seven. Something about Vern–his quirkiness, his humor, his devilish smile–made her feel an immediate connection with him. She quickly became pregnant, but instead of the idyllic interlude she’d imagined as she settled into married life and planned for their family, their love was soon tested by the ghosts of Vern’s past–a town, a house, a family, a memory.

Shooting Out the Lights is a May-December love story that explores the ongoing, wrenching aftermath of gun violence and the healing that comes with confronting the past.
