It’s Release Day for It Started With A Whisper!

Happy Release Day to me (now I have the birthday song in my head). I’m excited to tell you that today is the release day for It Started With A Whisper. Here’s the link to purchase.

Advance Praise for It Started With A Whisper: “It Started with a Whisper was an amazing and touching story, that in places you will have your emotional state tested.” – The Phantom Paragrapher.

 

“You’re my Obsession”

Now I’ve got that Human League song in my head. I digress. So, my husband came up with this brilliant idea to make a commercial about It Started With A Whisper. Since It Started With A Whisper is set in the 1980s, we thought it was appropriate to pay homage to those crazy Calvin Klein perfume/cologne commercials. Remember Obsession commercials?

Here’s our attempt at acting. Enjoy!

Cover Reveal: It Started With A Whisper

I’m thrilled to reveal the cover for It Started With A Whisper! It’s scheduled for release on June 1st. Here’s the link to add it to your TBR list on Goodreads.

Synopsis:

Five simple words: That’s all it takes to change the course of 18-year-old Josie Graham’s life in the summer of 1989.

Josie is a musical prodigy: She can sing, play guitar and is a natural on the piano. Instead of spending her last summer before college traveling the country with her rock star father, she’s made a last minute decision to spend it working at her Aunt Bernie’s inn, in Ambler’s Fork, North Carolina. But what could have turned her life-long passion for music into a hatred for an industry she’s worked so hard to get into?

Her aunt’s inn seems like the perfect place to escape, to clear her head and figure things out, but on her first day there, she almost drowns before Chic Hobbs saves her.

Chic wants nothing more in life than to leave Ambler’s Fork and his sordid past behind—at least not until that day Josie Graham swims into his life. The problem is, Chic’s got a secret. It’s a secret he’s keeping from Josie, and he’s worried if it gets out, it’ll ruin everything, and she’ll judge him for his past mistakes the way everyone else in town has.

Josie is carrying a burden of her own. One that made her run to Ambler’s Fork – away from her family and everything she’s ever known.

Chic saved Josie once. Can he save her again? Or will Josie rescue him this time?

 

Coming Soon!!!

June 1st!!! Mark this date in your calendars for the release of my YA romance,  It Started With A Whisper.  More details to follow, but for now, here’s a quote from the book.

He brushes a strand of hair away from my cheeks, leans close to my face and whispers into my ear. And I know I’ll commit those five words to memory for the rest of my life.

I bet you’re wondering what he says to her. Hint: You won’t find out until the end of the book.

 

Top 5 Non-Fiction Reads

I’ve read so much women’s fiction and YA lately, and I needed a break. Not that there is anything wrong with those genres, because I love them, but I missed non-fiction. I used to read it all the time when I was in college. Read more →

“I’m Your Huckleberry”

I love that line. I’m a sucker for a good western. I blame it on my dad. We’d watch John Wayne movies when I was a kid. Tombstone is a personal favorite of mine, and in my humble opinion, Val Kilmer steals the film. Read more →

Connecting without a Facebook Fan Page

Not long ago there was this social media site called Facebook that was really cool. People from all around the world could “talk” to each other. They could share pictures and stories about their lives. It was an author’s dream. Then this social media site changed. Posts and pictures seemed to get lost in some land of oblivion unless $ was spent. This author (points to self) began noticing dwindling interaction. No one was commenting. No one was seeing posts. Crickets. Read more →
