A new book’s Release Day is a highly anticipated occasion when the author is consumed by equal parts of hope and trepidation.
Will readers like the book?
Will reviewers cheer or sneer?
Will all the work put into the project yield a hit, a miss, or an also-ran?
The book is our beloved child facing the world for the first time and we wish it the best.
Getting a book noticed is difficult for every author who isn’t a brand name, mega-bestseller, so we go out on social media and introduce our story to followers, offer excerpts, and mostly, cross our fingers.
Little else can be done. The book is now on its own, like a son or daughter who has left the nest. We still love the story and the characters, but every new book must make its way through the maze of the modern publishing world based on its own merits. As writers, we must trust our baby to survive, then exhale and sit down to write our next story.
Today is Release Day for my new romantic suspense Sins of Her Father, published by Entangled Select Suspense.
Faith Rochambeau is horrified to learn she was conceived during a rape. She’s determined to make her biological father, Victor Telemann, pay for his crimes. Using her computer skills to dig into his life, she searches for the powerful man’s Achilles Heel and a way to extract retribution. She’ll do whatever it takes to get a conviction, even it if means infiltrating his Fortune 500 company.
She fails to plan on falling in love with her father’s smooth-talking stepson, Kent Telemann, who suspects she is a corporate spy. Faith is drawn to Kent, even though she’s not sure she can trust him. If her heart is wrong, he can put her life in danger.
Meanwhile, her father is playing a lethal game he’s determined to win.
