Wedding Gown Girl to be Released Shortly

I can’t believe I’m actually doing this – announcing to everyone that my first published book is coming out on the 20th September. I’ve dreamed about this moment for years and finally it’s coming true. There have been times when I've wondered if it would ever happen. So, those of you who are waiting for that contract, don’t give up and keep writing. Every word is a step closer. I think I’ve finally found the spot where my writing flies – sweet contemporary. My sweet, contemporary novella, Wedding Gown Girl, is about a young lady, Kienna, who works at a bridal boutique. When a handsome man comes in to help his future bride choose her dress, Kienna is momentarily distracted from her determined singleness. The bride confides in her that she’s not marrying for love. Kienna has to tell the groom that he’s making a terrible mistake. At first Blake thinks she’s flirting with him, until he’s jilted at the altar. Their lives meet again soon after, and Blake becomes more aware of the spark between them. But will Kienna trust love enough to respond to Blake’s advances?
I have to boast about Astraea Press who are publishing my e-book for me. It’s been great working with them, and even though we’re across the world from each other, they’ve been professional and communicative in their e-mails. I loved their editing process – I felt so safe knowing that my book was edited by more than one person and re-checked several times. I must confess that I self-published my first novel with a Vanity Press (unknown to me at the time), and the difference is like night and day. So here is the cover for my book. Hope it gives you a feel for my characters because I absolutely adore Kienna – she’s so likeable. Tsk, tsk.
