Local author plans book signing


LINDEN — Grace Tilney has always loved to read and recently decided to fulfill a lifelong dream and write a book.

Her debut novel, “Cupcake Curveball,” is a romance about a baseball player and a baker. The story of their special connection is book one of a duet, so readers should be aware that it does end on a cliffhanger. There are some behind-the-scenes actions (accidental premarital pregnancy from a one-night stand) that may be inappropriate for young readers. Tilney recommends those older than the age of 14 read this book, but it’s at a parent’s discretion.

A book signing is planned 5-7 p.m. March 19 at the Linden Carnegie Public Library, 102 S. Main St., Linden. The public is invited.

“Cupcake Curveball” is available on Amazon for $12 but at the signing, it will be $10. Payment can be made by cash, Venmo or PayPal. Anyone who purchases a book will be given special book swag.

Tilney has lived in Indiana for nearly 20 years and has lived in Linden for five years. She and her family love visiting the Linden Carnegie Public Library to enjoy the many programs offered. When not writing, she loves to attend sporting events, read, drink Diet Coke, and spend time with her family and furbabies.
