Welcome to the publication day special for The Marriage Sabbatical, the new book by Lian Dolan. From William Morrow out April 2, 2024. In this episode, Liz Dolan and Julie Dolan talk to Lian Dolan about the inspiration behind her latest novel, an adventurous story of one Gen X couple who hit midlife and need a vacation from their lives, their marriage and each other. Wife Nicole heads to Santa Fe to study silversmithing. Husband Jason opts for a motorcycle trip through Patagonia. What will happen when the sabbatical ends?



We discuss process, writing habits, inspiration, storytelling and what if everyone thinks this is about Lian’s marriage. Plus, take a look behind the planning of a book tour. (Hint– not as glam as Sex & The City makes it seem.) Click to listen! 


To buy The Marriage Sabbatical, head to your favorite indie bookstore or find it everywhere, including here.
