Release Day is finally here! I’ll be in and out of this profile most of the day, I’ll be doing some promotion for the book (and of course my awesome publisher!), and talking about the writing process with others, like developing characters and plot lines for example.
I’m really excited… I hope STRICKEN lives up to everyone’s expectations. It was a long road to get it published, and I’m so happy it’s finally out there. Namaste and thank you everyone!
Stricken came out exactly two years ago today. I remember being up till 4 a.m. that morning (midnight PDT), waiting to see if it finally went live without a hitch. There had been a lot of SNAFUs the day before, with the files for the gallery not working right, and me in full blown panic mode because I was terrified something else was going to go wrong.
It went live without any more problems, right on time, and my friends and family were finally able to see what their favorite aspiring author had been working on for the last five years.
I would love to thank everyone who was involved in getting Stricken published… From my amazing Beta Readers (Heather/Peapod, Erin H, Gordon, Amy, Beverly and Dawn) to the wonderful staff at eXtasy Books, my outstanding fellow authors at eXtasy Books and Devine Destinies, and my family and friends who were there for the entire journey – conception to publication – and all who purchased a copy of Stricken.
Most of all, I’d love to thank my darling husband, A, and our son, J, for putting up with me and my insanity while I was writing, editing, proofing, getting rejections, rewriting, and going through the publishing process… I couldn’t have done it without their patience and understanding!
Don’t forget, I’m giving away 2 copies of my beloved debut novel tomorrow at 10 a.m. EDT!
Ewan Campbell once thought he had it all – he was a rising star in the real estate field, popular with his peers, and engaged to his employer’s cousin, the shy and quiet little Marti Marlowe.
A heartbeat later, he was alone – shattered, confused and suicidal. Why had Marti walked away from him?
Years later, in another place, and a new chapter of Ewan’s life, fate brings them face to face again.
They start building a friendship, but Ewan wants more. He wants Marti as his wife, and she seems to prefer their current status as friends.
Can he convince her that taking another chance at their failed future will be the start of the best part of their lives?
