Reigning ACM and CMA “Vocal Duo of the Year” Thompson Square will publish their first novel titled Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not? with Howard Books June 4, 2013, an imprint of Simon and Schuster. The novel is based on Keifer and Shawna Thompson’s chart-topping love song “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not?” and features characters David Winters and Zoe Spark and their long, winding journey to love. Travis Thrasher, dubbed the “Nicholas Sparks of Christian fiction,” will co-author.
Thrown together to write the music and lyrics for their high school musical, David and Zoe have always been an unlikely pair whose differences at times drive them apart but also strengthen each other. Dating on and off throughout college, their timing never seems quite right, and they eventually go their separate ways. However, their chemistry as songwriters is undeniable, and two of their songs eventually become hits.
Despite this, the dream is never an easy path to follow, and David and Zoe both find themselves at rock bottom; David at the end of his musical aspirations and Zoe in the middle of a divorce. They come together as old friends and realize the dream was right in front of them the entire time; they just didn’t know it was in each other.
Thompson Square will join award-winning Country star Luke Bryan on his first headlining tour, the 2013 Dirt Road Diaries Tour, beginning January 17 in Evansville, IN. Thompson Square’s latest hit, “If I Didn’t Have You,” is the duo’s fastest rising single to-date and the first from it’s highly-anticipated sophomore album due in early 2013.
