Thompson Square Book Deal: ‘Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not’ Gets a Novel Namesake
“Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not?” is the title of Thompson Square’s first-ever No. 1 song and will also be the title of the married country couple’s first book! The duo’s Shawna and Keifer Thompson have inked a deal with Howard Books to co-write a novel partly based on the love story told in their Grammy-nominated tune.
Also co-written with famed Christian author Travis Thrasher, “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not” will center around characters David Winters and Zoe Spark, two teenagers paired together to write songs for their high school musical. Though their personalities are quite different, they begin dating and do so on and off throughout college, before eventually breaking up. But after David and Zoe go their separate ways, two of their songs become hits and the co-writers follow a rocky, but romantic path back to one another.
In addition to penning their first book, Thompson Square is gearing up for a calendar full of concert dates in 2013. The reigning ACM and CMA Vocal Duo of the Year will join Luke Bryan on his Dirt Road Diaries tour, kicking off Jan. 17. Click here for a list of cities and dates on the trek.
“Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not” is due in bookstores June 4, 2013.
