When I am Publishing a Book {Cover + Title Reveal, Plus a Giveaway!}


*Edited 6/10/2014 -- for the most up-to-date info on The Light Between Us, click here!*

I have been hard at work -- writing!  As I blogged about not very long ago, I wrote a novel (whoa).  And now I'm both getting that book ready for publication, and writing another novel. 

I know.  It's insane.  And it's so. much. fun.

And --

now it's time to share some juicy details about my soon-to-be-available book!

The Light Between Us is a luscious romance in the new adult genre, slated to release in mid-June 2014.  

The back-of-book blurb:

For twenty-something Boston school teacher Ruth, she's gotten by just fine on playing it safe, thank you very much. But now her risk-free life and nice-girl demeanor are leaving her increasingly heartsick. So when she meets bad boy Derek, she's willing to overlook her “no romance” rule and give him a chance to prove her fears wrong. Because he, also, is plagued by a sense of ennui and pointlessness, wanting to change his fast-and-loose living but not knowing how.

Neither can deny the inexplicable, illogical attraction drawing them together, and they are hard-pressed to resist it. But what will their unlikely relationship cost, and who will be caught in the crossfire?

The cover:



(I am seriously in love with this cover!  Art by the very talented Paper & Sage Design.)

Who should read this book:

The Light Between Us is an entertaining romantic romp of surprising depth.  This book is for anyone who enjoys well-written fiction with a pleasant weightiness and texture, but will also appeal to readers who are just out for some fun.  The Light Between Us is an ideal beach/summer read. 

Where to find it:

My novel will be available in mid-June 2014 (just a little over a month -- eeeee!!!!) on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle editions -- watch this blog as well as my Facebook page and my Amazon author page for updates.  You can also find me on Goodreads.

  3. I am soooo beyond excited for you! Congratulations! And please tell me all your publishing secrets because this DIY stuff is killin' me! ;)

    Books I love to read: Well to be honest, it is quite often fiction. It takes your mind to new places while weaving truth into the story. Often more masterfully than is done in non-fiction. I won't say no to a good memoir, though, and you know how I am drawn to poetry. :)

  11. Have I mentioned how exhilarated I am for this??

    And in answer to your question, I digest either heady scientific, psychological and intuitive self-improvement books, or light, heart-felt, summer beach-reading romances. Hence why I need June 14th to come fast. ;)
