My first book for grownups is out today!
« on: June 24, 2014, 06:08 AM »
Not that I'm stopping writing books for teens...but I'm delighted to announce that By Jove, a contemporary fantasy/romance and my first book for grown-ups, is out today from Entangled Publishing!!
 
http://www.entangledpublishing.com/by-jove/
 
It's about a young woman returning to graduate school and discovering that her department is not quite what it seems to be.  :ha  It was total fun to write, and I'm just so thrilled to see it launched into the publishing world! If you're interested in reading it now is the time to do so, as Entangled discounts all its new releases for the first five days they're for sale...just saying.  ;)   It's available at all your favorite on-line book retailers (links available within the above link.)
 
Now excuse me while I dance with the veggies...   :whitebunny :broccoli :carrot :pickle    :ceilingdance :ceilingdance :bananakilt

It's such an awesome story -- great blend of reality and not-so-real (hehe) -- loved it!
