It’s the bookish news we didn’t know we needed.

Dolly Parton is set to publish her first novel in 2022 and it sounds absolutely incredible.

The singer-songwriter has teamed up with author James Patterson for Run, Rose, Run.

“I’ve combined my love of storytelling and books with the release of #RunRoseRun, a novel I’ve co-authored with James Patterson,” the Jolene singer announced.

“I also have a new album to go along with the book. All-new songs were written based on the characters and situations in the book,” Parton added.

“I hope you enjoy the book and the songs as much as we’ve enjoyed putting it all together.”

Run, Rose, Run is bound to be swiped off the shelves of your favourite bookstores when it is published next March.

The thriller follows a rising singer-songwriter who is on the run from her past life:

Every song tells a story.

She’s a star on the rise, singing about the hard life behind her.

She’s also on the run. Find a future, lose a past.

Nashville is where she’s come to claim her destiny. It’s also where the darkness she’s fled might find her. And destroy her.

Run, Rose, Run will be published on March 7, 2022.
