My seventh Music of the Soul book is published!
On December 12, 2013 my eBook, Broken Song, was added at Amazon.com! Print on demand paperbacks are live too! I barely got it published when the first sales went through! My readers are the best on the planet!
While keeping with my own self imposed tradition, I will start by saying a little bit about this book before I start into an overview of the storyline. The main characters in this emotional romance are strong but flawed women who find that no obstacle is insurmountable when love is involved.
This book is the seventh book to take place in the Music of the Soul universe. Like the other books in the MOTS series, we find that people's definition of normal does not apply. Why be 'normal' when you can be so much more?
In Broken Song, the book is narrated by the main characters, Penny Franklin, and Sandra Callahan. Penny has decided to retire after twenty years of ruling the airwaves as the queen of punk/hard rock fusion. But she winds up losing it all as her world come crashing down upon her. She loses her fame, fortune, and family. When she believes she has hit rock bottom, a visit to her doctor for a physical proves her wrong.
With the turmoil of the physical and emotional blows sending her reeling, she decides to end it all. However, a chance meeting with a woman, Sandra Callahan, and her unorthodox and altruistic look on life gives Penny hope. She agrees to giving Sandra 48 hours to change her mind.
This seemingly simple woman proves to be anything but. Her unconventional intelligence shines through as she teaches Penny the true power of selflessness and love.
Sandra is the second most requested character for me to write a book about, right behind Vicky Davenport. I was able to shine a light on Sandra in this book and give her such dynamic depth. She proves over and over that you should not judge a book by its cover. I was too excited to stick with my release schedule, so I again published it 24 hours hours ahead of my own schedule. And as I always say, it may not be as polished or professional as most, but that's just my writing style. I believe this was a story well worth sharing with my readers, bad grammar and all.
I am in awe of my readers. As soon as I published this new addition to the series, it started selling. I am inspired by you people to start the next book in the MOTS series!
Of course, as always, I want my readers to know that I love them and appreciate any feedback, positive or negative. I also accept chocolate eclairs.
There is a sneak peek chapter of the third book in my Valkyrie Chronicles series, Valkyrie Chronicles: Folkvangr, at the end of the book. The Asgard have created a new permanent colony on Earth. As Kara and the rest of the Asgard prepare to transition away from Earth... Freya, using trickery, subterfuge, and cobbled together technology, fights for the very survival of the last of the Vanger race on Folkvangr.
I'd love to hear feedback and discussion from YOU about the characters in Broken Song. I'd love to discuss the story with you!
