The weather around here has been nothing but snow and ice since Monday with a minor break yesterday. I awoke to even more snow now being covered up with sleet and freezing rain. I wouldn’t mind so much if I was staying home to write in it but I do have to go to work and drive in the mess that I can already see piling up on the highway. I can only hope that everyone gets to their destination safely without any accidents.
So I figured with all the inclement weather and grey covered skies possibly bringing everyone’s mood down, I’d make a happy announcement. Friday, February 7th, 2014 Blowing The Whistle will be available for purchase! This story holds an extremely special place in my heart and I couldn’t wait to share it with everyone.
Description: Nursing her own demons, Ally Fields isn’t a typical college student. Her life is solely focused on classes, and her goal is to maintain her very high GPA. Ally isn’t a typical girl, either; her only form of entertainment is a rule-bound “arrangement” with an older businessman, Leon.
Life is turned upside down for Ally just as she reaches what she thought was the comfort and control she had always strived for. Trevor takes over, challenging every decision she makes and forcing a friendship she doesn’t want. Trevor turns her world upside down and inside out as she is forced to decide whether she will use him for her own purposes or succumb to his challenging charm.
Thank you fellow writers, authors, bloggers, readers, and friends for all of your support. I appreciate all of you. Have a wonderful Wednesday and stay safe! 🙂
I have been so busy editing, working with my graphic designer and working my full time job that writing a blog post was impossible. I can proudly say that that should be changing as I’ll have more time for writing soon. I am finally in the process of putting my novel Glimmer of Hope, the first in the trilogy, up for purchasing as of November 30, 2013.
I was extremely naive thinking that most of the work was writing the novel. Even though at the time I knew it was a great deal of work, I truly had no clue. There is honestly no experience like the process of getting published that leaves you feeling full of excitement, a little anxiety, pride and hope. My official website has finally gone live, http://www.mlnewmanauthor.com which is extremely exciting since I’ve been working on getting it together since September.
The only thing left to do now is a ton more marketing but the technical stuff is a sealed deal. I couldn’t be more ecstatic at this point in time. So for my fellow friends, writers, authors and bloggers here is my cover reveal 🙂
