Well, today is the day! My contemporary romance, Take 2, is available on Amazon! This is so exciting, a dream come true. All thanks to my publisher, MasterKoda Select Publishing.

I really hope you will join me today! I am having a Release Party on FaceBook. If you have never been to one, it works like this…Click on this link, Take 2 Release Party, and you’ll be on FaceBook.  The party is virtual. So between 1-5 CST we’ll be playing games, winning prizes and having fun! You should drop in! You don’t have to stay the whole time. By all means, pop in and out and check out the fun! I would love to see you there.

Of course, you can just click here, Take 2, and go direct to Amazon. Its so cool seeing my book there! I’d love for you to “Like” it and give it a read! Reviews are welcome!

I’d like to thank my posse for all their support and GBGals for being just as obsessed with Gerry Butler as I am! I like not being the only one!

Alexandra Daniels is a forty-something, hard-working mom, wife and employee. Her life has been plodding along at a snails pace and she’s longing for excitement. She wins a trip to her favorite talk show in New York, the Veronica Becker Show, and it just so happens the actor of her dreams is a guest, Derek Dunbar! Is Alex’s life about to change? 
Derek Dunbar is Scottish, an actor and a hunk! Every woman in America drools after him. He has his pick of women but stinks at relationships. At forty, is he longing for a more meaningful relationship? Does he even know how to have one? Is he willing to make the effort or will it just be too complicated?

The Next Big Thing

Welcome to The Next Big Thing Blog Hop. I’m sharing a bit of info about my new book coming out this month. Then, five other writers, below, will share info about their current WIP (Works In Progress) or a current release. 

What is the working title of your book? 
Take 2

Where did the idea come from for the book?
I have a terrible crush on actor Gerard Butler…He was my inspiration. I hope he’s flattered and doesn’t think I’m a stalker…

What genre does your book fall under?
Contemporary Romance

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Gerard Butler (of course) and Megan Dodds

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
After the death of her husband, can Alex find love with a well-known, playboy actor or will he just break her heart?

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Agency – MasterKoda Select Publishing

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? 6 months, but I did 6 edits over the next year and still could have changed more. You have to stop sometime.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
There isn’t that much out there with the female being over 40, as well as the male. I was tired of reading about young virgins or twenty-somethings….I just couldn’t relate. I found I have friends who felt the same way. So…I wrote what I know about…mid-life and middle-age! 

Who or What inspired you to write this book?
Gerard Butler….Had to make good use of all those fantasies…and the women in the DFW Tea Readers Group! They encourages me…

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Like I said, its a 40+ woman starting her life again and a 40+ guy trying to figure out if he’s finally found the love of his life.

I hope you’ll check out Take 2. Its being released this month in ebook.
