“Tales of the Vintage Berry Wine Gang” Release Date Set For April 3

Published by Daleen Berry on

It’s been a long time in coming, but it’s been compiled in a short few months. And these aren’t even all my old newspaper columns from the Preston County News. So there will be another edition down the road. Here’s the cover and the book’s details. You can preorder it today, from Barnes and Noble, Kobo, iTunes, Smashwords, and Amazon Kindle.

Christina at CBB Productions did a great job with the cover design, basing it around the 1990 family photo that appears in my memoir and which many readers have commented on.

Here’s a synopsis:

Devoted fans of West Virginia author Daleen Berry’s weekly newspaper column, Vintage Berry Wine, will be happy to hear those old yellowed clippings have been compiled into a book. Plus, as an added BONUS—we are including several new, never-before-read columns! Using humor to draw from the antics of Ms. Berry’s four rambunctious children, Tales of the Vintage Berry Wine Gang will make you wonder about that crazy, loveable, dysfunctional world we all call “family.”

Readers have long awaited this book by Ms. Berry, who, in the intervening twenty-five years since writing her first newspaper column at the Preston County News, went from an award-winning columnist and investigative reporter to a New York Times best-selling author of true-crime.

This will be Ms. Berry’s sixth book, following Sister of Silence (2011; memoir), Cheatin’ Ain’t Easy (2013; memoir), The Savage Murder of Skylar Neese (2014; true-crime), Pretty Little Killers (2014; true-crime), and Guilt by Matrimony (2015; true-crime).

My fifth book, Guilt by Matrimony, about the murder of Aspen socialite, Nancy Pfister, was released November 17. My memoir, Sister of Silence, is about surviving domestic violence and how journalism helped free me; Cheatin’ Ain’t Easy, now in ebook format, is about the life of Preston County native, Eloise Morgan Milne; The Savage Murder of Skylar Neese (a New York Times bestseller, with coauthor Geoff Fuller) and Pretty Little Killers (also with Fuller), released July 8, 2014, and featured in the August 18 issue of People Magazine.

You can find these books either online or in print at a bookstore near you, at BenBella Books, Nellie Bly Books, Amazon, on iTunes and Barnes and Noble.

For an in-depth look at the damaging effects of the silence that surrounds abuse, please watch my live TEDx talk, given April 13, 2013, at Connecticut College.

Have a great day and remember, it’s whatever you want to make it!
