Felicity Stripped Bare

Tuesday, July 07, 2009




It's out in print today!

Feels a little anticlimatic considering the ebook has been out for a year. All the same, it was very cool holding the author copy print book in my hot little hands.

So... if you were interested in Felicity & Daniel's story, but ebooks weren't your thing, now's your chance to get the book.

[/promo at which I suck]

Blurb:


High-school drop-out Felicity Cameron is newly single (by choice), with a new job, a new home, and she’s just signed up with a tutor because of her dyslexia.

So what if her hew job is at a strip club? No one has to know. And who cares if her new flat is in a ramshackle house? The rent’s cheap. The important thing is: Felicity is finally getting her life back on track.

Until the house is sold and her new landlord nearly causes her plans to derail. The man is yummy chocolate-coated on the outside. Chewy moron center.

Torn between fulfilling his father’s dynastic visions at the family law firm and pursuing his own dreams as a custom home builder, Daniel Mackenzie isn’t looking for more complications in his life. But complications are what he gets when his latest property purchase, slated for a flip, comes with one constantly complaining tenant.

It's a shame they got off on the wrong foot, though, considering said tenant was quite a looker. Too bad all you could look at were her tonsils ‘cause her mouth was always flapping.

As they try to get past that little ol’ eviction thing… Felicity strives to keep all her secrets from him, while Daniel does everything he can to pull her into his life and into his arms.

But she seems determined to hold something back. And he’s afraid it’s her heart.

Excerpts can be found here and here.

The Contest Is Now Closed. Thank you and good luck!

**Edited to add: I would do a contest, but the last contest I held for a ebook copy was a complete wash (only one entry after posting about it on the writer's news sections at AAR, RT an Romance Divas!! ::cringe::) Anywho, if peeps are interested in a chance to win a copy, either leave a message in the comments or drop me a line at vanessajaye @ hotmail .com and I'll pick a name. Contest closes Friday 12 midnight. I'll post a winner on Saturday (if there are any takers).

Way to go to have a printed book of your own!!

Hi Vanessa,

Just came from a week long vacation and happened to see Cat's email for your new release. Congratulations!! Although eBooks are all the rage now, I still prefer my print copy, so I would love to win a copy if it's not too late. Sounds like an interesting premise, and the excerpt has whetted my appetite.

Best of luck with your book,
Julie

I'm glad that you are writing a bit about dyslexia. I have several family members & friends who have struggled with it all their lives. A lot of people don't realize how it can & does affect some people & how much some people will go to cover it up. Thank-you for writing about it.

Ronda rlitex said...

HUGE congrats on the print book! I almost started drooling just reading your blurb about it so of COURSE I'd love to win it!!!

And if I had known about the contest you had for the ebook version I WOULD have entered. Hubby gave me an ebook reader for Christmas - a jetBook - and I love it! So paper or ebook are both great!

Very best to you,

Healthy Happy!
