As you know, if you read this blog even sporadically, way back in 2007 I sat down at a coffee shop table, placed Little L’s baby carrier at my feet, and typed the first words to a story that would, over the course of the next five years, become Aloha Also Means Goodbye, my very first novel.
Typing those words never stops feeling surreal. Writing a novel is one of the hardest and most amazing things I’ve ever accomplished. I have to admit I’m not just a little proud.
Aloha Also Means Goodbye is the story of a girl, Jo, who heads to Hawaii to renew her wedding vows with Jordan, the man who saved her when she was beyond broken. When she arrives on the island she discovers that Andy, part of the reason she needed fixing, is there too. With the help of her two best friends, and despite the meddling of her mother, Jo has to face down her past in order to move on with her future.
It’s a fun read; a quick escape to a tropical island. If you’re looking for a little vacation, it’s the perfect book for you!
Right now the book is available in Kindle format, which means that you can read it on a Kindle or any device that supports a Kindle app (computer, smart phone, iPad, iPod, tablet…. You name it, it probably has an available Kindle app). We’re releasing the paper version imminently. So if digital books really aren’t your cup of tea, hang tight!
But really, why this post?
Well, that’s simple; I need your help. And please, let me assure you, asking for help is not something that comes easy to me. If I’m asking it’s because I truly believe that you can make a huge difference. Even with just a few seconds of your time!
Interested? Yay! Here’s what you can do!
1) Read the book! (Ok, ok, that was a pot shot. Sorry.)
2) If you’ve already read the book (Thank you!) pretty please take a minute to write a review
a) on Amazon (My goal is to reach 25 reviews! Help!)
b) on Goodreads
3) If you haven’t already read the book, please take a second to
a) mark it as “want to read” on Goodreads
b) put it on your wishlist on Amazon
4) Tell your friends about it!
That’s it! Now you have my eternal gratitude!
Oh wait. One more thing.
I’m killing myself in an effort to not spam people via email. I only ever want to send emails to people who want them. I also don’t want anyone to miss updates about sales, deals, important releases, or even book tours. So, if you’re interested in hearing about any of that, pretty please subscribe here: http://eepurl.com/LKUSz. I promise to only ever email you when I have something of value to say!
Now I’m all done. Off you go and read or something. I’ll try not to bite my knuckles too hard while I wait to hear what you think.
