At Dear Author, I commented and said I’d been thinking of highlighting the non-erotic books I work on, because they don’t usually get quite as much screen time as the erotic ones. Several commenters said they’d like to see that (who knows if they even read this blog) and I decided to stop thinking about it and do it. As it happens, this first book isn’t one that I worked on and I know little about it other than it was published by Samhain so it must rock hard.
But I have noticed Kerri around the internet doing some really nice promotion, and she has a great hook, an intriguing book trailer and one seriously awesome contest, so I’m starting with her book!
“Strawberries in Winter” by Kerri Augusto
Kyra Adams feels like she is living someone else’s life. The problem is, she’s right…
At thirty-six, Kyra has a workaholic husband, an ailing mother, a radiant daughter, and a dream home in the heart of suburbia. Her days are filled with saccharine ‘Mommy and Me’ play dates, but her nights are haunted by terrifying dreams of a girl with no reflection.
When her daughter becomes lost in a department store, Kyra’s dream intrudes on her waking state, and a threatening voice in her head challenges, “If you lost her, who would you be?”
Terrified by the realization that she is disappearing into the footnotes of other people’s lives, and yearning for a full and genuine life of her own, Kyra seeks solace at a writer’s retreat in rural Vermont. What she expects are answers. But what she finds is a deeply troubled stranger with a tragic past, and a powerful secret that pierces into the heart of her family, testing the limits of forgiveness.
Are some secrets better left untold? Kyra is about to find out.
Not enough to convince you? You HAVE to go read Kerri’s post on the Samhain blog from Tuesday and watch her video. The post makes you want to read the book. In fact, if you’ve gotten this far and go over and read the post/watch the video then come back here and comment (in some meaningful way) I’ll enter you for a free download of the book,winner to be drawn this weekend.
But wait, there’s more! Kerri, as part of her promo, is giving away an ebook reader! Go check out her website and enter to win an Ebookwise.
