...WWGRD...

 ...Well -  first off, a BIG thank you to Monica Kelly, who informed the FB GingerBunch about this item...a new book is (almost) out which has at least a 'nod' to Ginger - it's called "What Would Ginger Rogers Do?", written by Caitin Raynes...
...the 'synopsis' given on the website (see below) indicates a general romance novel, with a bit of 'empowerment' for the main character, who asks herself the rhetorical question which is the novel's namesake... 'Channeling Your Inner Ginger' is another way of stating it.

Obviously, the author is a big Ginger fan, so that reason ALONE should gain the support of we Gingerologists...I plan on purchasing it! Would have been cool if an actual pic of Ginger was on the cover, but guess there's the 'use of likeness' fees hanging out there... t least it's a pink dress with polka-dots! ALMOST as if the author has been 'lurking' on some of the Gingerology Group banter on FB...which is COOL!!!


HERE is the link to info from the book's publisher, Buried River Press.

Buy it!!! NOW!!!

KIG!
