Last Monday, I introduced my upcoming novel, Stranger at Sunset, which releases June 30th. What a difference a week makes.
Since then, I’ve been busy setting up promotion for the book, and I’m thrilled to learn so many people want to help. THANK YOU to all those who have shared about it already. Your kindness is incredible. ♥
It’s going to be a busy two weeks, but I’m looking forward to the frenzy of it. Below is a passage I will include in the book. You get to read it here first. 😉
Stranger at Sunset is a departure from a genre I’ve become known for—literary erotica. It’s also my first novel. Those who have read my novellas and flash fiction know that characters drive my stories. As much as I enjoy telling a good tale, I love writing about the motivations and actions of people. For me, a story exists because people make it happen. People do not exist because of a story.
A trip to Jamaica in 2013 following Hurricane Sandy inspired Stranger at Sunset. It is the first in a series I envision will include at least three books, if not more. It all depends on how much the characters have to say. Lucky for me, my protagonist, Kate Hampton has a lot to say. As with all my female characters, she is a strong, intelligent woman. But she is much more than that. She is complicated and passionate, and she is wicked. It has been a pleasure to discover her, and her story is just beginning.
With a natural curiosity for people and a fondness for psychology, penning a mystery with a psychological bent seemed the ideal choice for me.
I invite you to take a trip with me to Jamaica in Stranger at Sunset. It’ll be a vacation like you’ve never experienced.
