I will e-mail you an e-book of Fern’s Fancies, an unpublished contemporary romance novel. It’s quite different from my other books, and I had fun writing it. I hope you have fun reading it.
In addition to the free e-book, everyone who purchases Dream or Destiny during June will have a chance to win a virtual gift basket of e-books. The titles of the books, which I either edited or wrote, are listed below.
Back cover blurb for Dream or Destiny:
Marilee Anderson dreams about a murder and wakes to find it really happened. She and David Nichols, the victim’s brother, become the prime suspects. Though they have their secrets and aren’t sure they can trust each other, Marilee and David team up to find the killer.
Does Tess, “the crazy lady,” know anything about the murder or is she just delusional? Does the cheating couple on the victim’s floor have any information about the night of the crime? Why has the abusive father of the victim and her brother suddenly reappeared? What about Barbara’s ex-husband? Will Marilee and David find the killer? Or will they end up in jail—or dead?
About Fern’s Fancies:
When Fern Tate sold her interior landscape company to a national corporation, she didn’t expect to have a boss like Pendleton Morgenthal, III. Had she made the biggest mistake of her life?
Pen never allowed a woman—especially a subordinate—to distract him from his fast-track career. What was it about Fern that made her different?
I wrote this story early in my writing career in response to a call for submissions from a romance publisher for contemporary romance novels that began with a letter or other form of correspondence. I had just sold my interior landscape company and enjoying sharing some humorous incidents that we had encountered in 20 years in the business.
I submitted part of the manuscript as homework in an online writing class, and the instructor predicted this book would be picked up by a publisher right away. However, when it was rejected by the publisher I targeted it for, I never tried again. Fern’s Fancies is genre romance, a la Harlequin or Silhouette Romance (the “sweet romance” lines). It’s a light, fun, and sometimes humorous read.
