If you loved Jamie Ford's Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, then you probably already know that his next book, Songs of Willow Frost, is scheduled for release on September 10th.  Early reviews suggest that it will be easy to fall in love with 12-year-old William Eng, the orphaned boy at the center of this new novel, who glimpses an actress (Willow Frost) on the silver screen at Seattle's historic Moore Theatre and becomes convinced it is his mother.  Next Monday, take advantage of an exciting opportunity to find out more about the book when author Jamie Ford chats live with readers.  Hosted by GoodReads, the video chat begins at 11am (August 26th); sign in with a GoodReads account to post questions for Jamie now.
