Dani Burke, Author

This week Nicki Elson, author of Three Daves and a local gal (and my niece), interviewed me and posted it on her blog.
Check it out. Her blog is awesome. Also, check out Three Daves. It will bring back all those fun college memories!


All in all, I was very pleased with the signing at Tech Nail. I sold 11 books and received two great leads that I will follow up on. Not only did I have conversations with some really nice ladies, the girls at the shop fed me lunch and were my greatest sales ladies!



I’ve been in touch with the lady who runs the Tuscan Market Book Club. Although they basically only work with two major houses, she agreed to take a look at my book. Can’t ask for more than that! For those of you that are not familiar with Tuscan Market, it is a wonderful wine shop in downtown Arlington Heights. They have good food and you can grab a sandwich, some pizza, and great and unique wines and beers. They also have wonderful meats and fish. Other news! I just heard Palatine Library has my book! A friend told them to order it, they did, and she is the first reader. Happy I can increase readership!

I’ll be signing books at Tech Nail in Lake Zurich Friday and Saturday, August 24 and 25 from 10 am to 4 pm. Come join us!

This week I was able to obtain a contact for Hudson News, which most of you know are the newsstands at major airports, rail stations, etc. Unfortunately their submission guidelines prohibit self-publishing by small publishing houses. Oh well, it was a good thought. We shall forge ahead. Yesterday Windy City Publishing tweeted:
“Congrats to WCP author Dani Burke, whose delightful & compelling novel, “Highway to Love” is now officially published!
What a complimentary tweet…


Dani Burke is now not only on Amazon.com, but back on Barnesandnoble.com and Indiebound.com. If you enjoy the read, please post your comments! I’m working on placement in a smaller bookstore with several locations in the Chicago area!

Well, Barnes and Noble is having some issues, and I am no longer on their website at the moment. Hopefully they will rectify this soon. A couple of readers have completed the book. So far I’m getting nothing but positive comments. Also, I have begun to read the story myself as an actual reader versus editor. I really do enjoy the story. Beautiful Door County is a great place to be enjoying this story! Sales are moving along. Sold four myself last weekend and one here in Door County. My friend Paul has only read the first chapter thus far. Guess the story is more “me” than I had thought, because he said it felt like it was me reading it to him. So funny. Those of you that are reading it, I hope you are enjoying it.


Highway to Love is now also available on Barnesandnoble.com! My first order of books has come in and I’ve been signing them at the request of my purchasers! Also signed three books ordered thru Amazon by Mary this past weekend. I find this whole signing thing kind of awkward, but I’m getting better at personalizing for each person that I  know. Thanks for your readership. If you like it, please rate it on Amazon and/or Barnes and Noble!

Thanks again.


I want to thank all of you for ordering copies of Highway to Love. So far, it seems to be a hit. My news today is that my friend Rick, whose wife works for the Lake Zurich Library, took my information sheet to their buyer. She said they love local authors. I would be thrilled to have it at the library. Again, thanks everyone!

It is finally official. As of late yesterday afternoon, Highway to Love by Dani Burke (that would be me kind of) is published and on Amazon.com!
