A Second Chance is now available on Kindle in both ebook and paperback forms. The book is a prequel to My Shenandoah Love and follows Hanna's older cousin Esper. A Second Chance is about choices and young adulthood. The book is also about relationships and the dysfunctions within our family units.
Similar to Hanna who navigated her mother's promiscuous behavior, Esper has a strained relationship with her ultra-religious mother. Being led in a direction she doesn't want to pursue, Esper is torn between a life in Gilmanton under her mother's rules or in Carolina with her controlling boyfriend. If you liked MSL, this new book should be a welcomed addition to your reading collection.
The fourth book in the Luza series will be released on Kindle this week. It is already out on Apple, Kobo, and Barnes and Noble. Lane got the thumbs up from my Beta reader group, made up of several middle school aged students. According to them, it is the best book in the series. I still think it's the third book Valo. Regardless, if you have read Luza and Riley, you should definitely check out books three and four.
Concerning My Shenandoah Love, I would first like to apologize. Originally released in 2015, I removed the book from Kindle over a year ago. In between my moving and teaching in Italy, I mistakenly lost what I know had to have been the edited file. To that end, there was a promotion last week and the thousand plus downloads might be wondering why their version of the story was so shoddy. The story itself is solid but between the grammar and typos, many might have been turned away. Again, I made the assumption it was the same copy as before until I saw reviews on Goodreads and on Amazon. To make amends, I went over the story and removed over 7000 words. While it is not perfect, I trust it will be far superior to the copy many of you downloaded. With that, the second book in the series, a prequel will be out at some point this summer. If you enjoyed reading MSL, you might also like A Second Chance.
I hope to have another update in a few weeks. I'm finishing up my last week and a half in Italy, before the move back to the States.
While I navigate this move, if you have read any of my books, please post reviews on Goodreads, Amazon, Apple, Kobo; any venue. The reviews help generate interest and are greatly appreciated.
Thanks for reading,
