Must-read Monday: The synopsis of my next work-in-progress

Tomorrow will be the official must-read Monday, with a giveaway to boot! (Due to publisher and blog tour restrictions, I can only put the giveaway up on July 2 - keep an eye out for it!)


  • Last week I was pretty busy...I was offered a contract to publish my novel!
  • I also signed with one of the BEST agencies in the business....I'm now a client of Victoria Lowes at The Bent Agency!
  • I had a revelation in the middle of the night last night. This is, literally, how my books are born. I've been toying around with characters that I love (meet them here) and I've got the basis of the story down now. 

To get this week rolling, I spent a few minutes early this morning writing what I call back-cover blurbiness. No doubt it will be tweaked, finessed, and smoothed out as I write, but this is the basis of Julia's story. :)

One year after calling off her wedding to a cheater, caterer Julia Emerson agrees to try a one-night stand in a last-ditch effort to get over her fear of relationships. When that one-night stand becomes her coworker at the local farm she's trying to partner with, Julia realizes she's not a one-night stand kind of girl...and she's fallen hard for the Afghanistan War veteran. 
Adam Wheeler's too hard, too rough, and too emotionally unavailable for someone as bright and shiny as Julia. He's not relationship material - he's good for a night, but nothing more. His soul was left back in Afghanistan, if he ever had one to begin with...and he's convinced no amount of love can ever bring it back.
Can Julia's love heal Adam's dark soul? Or is it a challenge she's just not cut out to win?


  1. Congratulations on the agency news! And that back-cover blurbiness is irresistible! :)

    1. Thanks, Susan! I'm over the moon about it :)

  2. So excited for you and can't wait to read your books! I agree, I'd definitely pick up that book to read based on your blurb! Best of luck :)

    1. Thanks! I'm so excited about this book - and the other work-in-progress I've got going. This is all happening quickly and I couldn't be more blessed :)
