Heard It in a Love Song Trade Paperback Release Day and New Book News!

  • January 31, 2023


Hello, everyone!

Happy 2023! I hope you’re having a wonderful start to the new year. I am happy to announce that today is the trade paperback release of Heard It in a Love Song. Isn’t the cover pretty? I love seeing the modifications to the cover image for the different editions of the book, and St. Martin’s Press always knocks it out of the park. If you’re someone who prefers a trade paperback, today is the day to grab your copy. And if you’d like it signed, you can always send it to me at Tracey Garvis Graves, PO Box 35092, Des Moines, IA 50315. Simply enclose a padded postage-paid mailer with your name and address and I’ll happily sign your book(s) and mail the package back to you. You can pick up the trade paperback at the retailers below:


Barnes & Noble 


Indie Bound 



I have more fantastic news! There’s a new Tracey Garvis Graves title heading your way. Book 10 is complete and my publishing team and I are hard at work behind the scenes getting everything ready. Stay tuned for the cover and title reveal as well as pre-order links. I cannot wait for you all to meet Wren and Marshall. More details to come, but for now, I’ll leave you with this: Romantic Dramedy. I think you’re really going to love it.

So many of you have written to tell me that you absolutely loved the character of Janice from The Girl He Used to Know. As I’ve mentioned online a few times, the character was named after my own close friend, Janice. Then, in Heard It in a Love Song, I featured a four-legged character named Norton who was adopted by Josh (and later cared for and taken on walks by Layla). In a further example of art imitating life, Norton is the (real) Janice’s (real) dog. Isn’t he a majestic-looking fella? He is also a very good boy. I obviously got a big kick out of this and hope it puts a smile on your face too. 🙂 

Lastly, thank you for all of the heartfelt messages I’ve received telling me about your own friends-to-lovers journey or how you found your true soulmate the second time around. I’ve loved hearing all about it. I deeply appreciate all the support you’ve shown for Josh and Layla and can’t wait for you to meet Wren and Marshall.
