Blake Shelton’s Mom to Release First Novel
Blake Shelton’s Mom to Release First Novel

Blake Shelton is no the only talented member of his family.  His mother, Dorothy Shakleford, will release her first novel, Time For Me To Come Home, on October 29th.  The book is the story of a country singer who returns home to Oklahoma for the holidays and was inspired by real holiday memories she and Blake have shared.

This is the first novel Shakleford has written but she has written some songs over the years, including her duet with Blake on his Christmas album, Time For Me to Come Home.

I might have to give this one a try.  I love to read and I’m always looking for some good holiday books!  Blake, of course, received the first copy of the book.
