We’re having a big ol’ party, er, blog hop to help author Rachel Van Dyken celebrate some awesome news. She’s received a contract from Grand Central Publishing for her two self-published books The Bet and Elite! And this is coming on top of The Bet spending the last few weeks on The New York Times bestseller list! Way to go, Rachel! You rock, girl!
In case you didn’t know, Rachel is a multi-published (and very talented) author. Check out some of her gorgeous covers! (psst…if you click on the cover, it will take you to the book’s page on the publisher’s website)
And now, because Rachel is such a sweetheart and insisted on it, here’s the cover and blurb for my most recent release, Battlefield of the Heart.
Cindy Waymire, a college senior in search for a topic for an upcoming sociology paper, finds more than a topic when she meets Army veteran and college freshman Danny Flynn outside the student union. An undeniable attraction to this troubled veteran leads her on a difficult and wind-ing path that brings her to a crossroads — get into a relationship with a man who has serious mental health problems or turn her back on one of the best men she’s ever met.
Can Cindy set her fears aside and follow her heart, or will the ghosts haunting Danny’s mind end their relationship before it begins?
Now for the fun part. Because this is a blog hop, I’m giving away an ebook copy of my self-published book, Finding the Way Back. Entering is easy. Leave a comment, and your name goes into the (virtual) hat. Then on May 20, 2013, I’ll use Random.org to pick the winner.
Want to know more about the prize? Here are the cover and blurb:
Nurse practitioner Hazel Baker is stunned when the Agency asks her to take a traumatized field agent home with her. Her immediate concern is how it will affect her four-year-old daughter. But, after meeting the broken man, she can’t deny him the opportunity for healing and opens her home to him. If only she could find a way to help him regain the ability to speak, which he lost after being captured during a mission…
Ian Grant may not have a voice, but he still has a conscience — something many of his colleagues at the Agency seem to have lost. Their unethical behavior set back his recovery from the torture he endured, but his move to Hazel’s house gives him hope that perhaps someone truly does care about him, not just what he knows. But can Hazel’s gentle presence and her daughter’s innocence help him find the strength to fight against the corruption riddling the Agency?
