I hope you will join me at the Milwaukee launch of Robert’s Rules, Book Three of North of the Tension Line on Thursday, May 24th at 7 pm, at Boswell Book Company.  For writers like me, operating a bit below the radar, these things are very much group efforts. I need your help to get my book off the ground. That’s why they call it a launch! RobsRules

Here’s a blurb from the book: “Robert’s Rules is Book Three in the award-winning North of the Tension Line series, set on a remote island in the Great Lakes. Called a modern-day Jane Austen, author J.F. Riordan creates wry, engaging tales and vivid characters that celebrate the well-lived life of the ordinary man and woman.”

First of all, please come! I would love to meet you, or if you’re an old friend, to see you again. A big crowd tells the bookstore that my books are worth the effort. Bring your friends, your book club, your Moose lodge, your groupies.

Second, please call or visit Boswell, and pre-order. Pre-orders are a very big deal in the publishing industry, and can make or break a book. If you can’t make it to Boswell, please go to your favorite bookseller, or online. Please let me know that you can join me in giving Robert’s Rules a successful launch.  Let’s boost it so high that everyone can see it!

I hope to see you there!


J.F. Riordan

  1. Oh my gosh, what timing. I stumbled across an advance reading copy of “The Audacity of Goats” today in a “Little Free Library” while on a walk in Seattle today. Whoever says not to judge a book by it’s cover… That title totally got my attention! I’m really excited to read the book and “discover” your writing. If the book grabs me, I’ll definitely look into “Robert’s Rules.” Have fun at your launch party. Count me in, in spirit.


  2. Dear Jan,
    The Christmas holidays have passed and I finally took time for myself to start to read your third book Robert’s Rules with all good intentions to read small portions at a sitting so I would savour the experience. Alas, I devoured your book in my third session and were it a tasty dessert, I’d have burped with contentment.
    As always, I could not put your book down!
    – waiting with fork and spoon in hand for ” A Small Earnest Question”.
