17 Dec "The Wine Steward's Lover": Ready to Drink!
Two years in the making, I have completed and published my fourth book and second novel, The Wine Steward's Lover. Sometime Monday it should be available at both Amazon's Kindle store and Barnes & Noble's Nook store, for your reading pleasure on e-readers, IPads, tablets, computers or smart phones.
Here's the storyline: After 29-year-old Kate Hart`s career implodes, the highly-structured, lifelong Nashvillian stumbles into grad school to catch her breath, gain clarity and reignite her childhood poetry-writing passion. What Kate embraces across a single semester is far more life-changing than a few verses of iambic pentameter: a heroine`s journey into ambiguity (guided by the writings of Joseph Campbell), new friends straddling the borders of tragedy, the potential reconciliation of her fractured family…and the disappearance of a handsome, intriguing young man–just minutes after Kate falls in love with him.
My books reach a variety of readers, but the core audience for TWSL is likely women (especially soccer moms; the young and social; and college students), wine lovers (especially those who frequent wine bars, wine clubs and vineyards), Nashville residents (particularly those connected to Belmont University and the cafe Bongo Java) and fans of the late mythologist Joseph Campbell (whose “journey of the hero” meta-narrative is a key thread throughout the novel).
I would be honored if you would read my book and write a review! Please drop me a personal line as well at firstname.lastname@example.org
