On the advice of some successful indie authors, I decided to get my name out there and try to find some readers who enjoy my voice. Is it working? Too early to tell, but I've jumped in with both feet and a lot of faith.
Are there any other authors out there who feel "called" to write romance? I do. The characters and stories in my head are there for a reason. They need an outlet, and if they make the world a little happier for just one person, then I've succeeded.
Without further ado, check out the cover for Winter Formal. The story still has a little humor, but it deals with a bit more serious subjects. That's why I love the serenity of this couple- finding peace and each other though hard circumstances. To me, the blue sky is a sign of hope. (And the pine trees scream Southern Alabama.)
Life is going according to plan for Sibba Douglas until she gets blackmailed. Her future dream of being a doctor is threatened unless she can help a spoiled fraternity boy do well on the MCAT.
Nash Lincoln knows he needs to settle down and focus on his studies, but academics have taken a back seat to social events and he’s coasting by on little sleep and lots of pills. The distraction of a tutor he’s admired from afar isn’t helping matters.
Substance abuse leads to tragedy and draws Sibba and Nash closer together. But it may also be the thing that tears them apart.
Check out the Book Trailer:
This book trailer was the most difficult one I've made so far because I was searching for a balance with the elements of the story. As Providence would have it, the song that was chosen for me as part of the theme, turned out to be almost perfect. It was so easy that I kept questioning whether it needed more. In the end, I had to have faith and let it go.
Do you ever feel that way about the stories you create? Does reading romance help restore your faith in love?
