Bear with me while I enjoy the moment

For those of you who are authors, I'm sure you'll understand. The publishing of your first story brings many firsts. Some of those firsts are, oh, so exciting! Others ... not so much. The concept of marketing comes to mind, but I digress.

Since reading the words 'I believe GIFT OF THE REALM will be a wonderful addition to our Faery Line' I've experienced many moments of doubt, wondering when the email would arrive to tell me it was all a big mistake.  Okay, so I'm not as self confident as I think I am.  But today, oh today brought me one of those exciting firsts.  I've just received approval on my blurb for GIFT OF THE REALM, to be released by The Wild Rose Press.  God, I'm shaking.  

So, no pressure, but would you buy this book?

Beneath the fairie mound of Dunhaven's Door, two dreamers meet their destiny…

After a decade of trying to outrun her debilitating dreams, Keely returns to Ireland to face the ancient ring of stones and the man haunting them. Within the stones, she embraces her fairie heritage and her mystical gifts. But can she trust the handsome Halfling who shares her dreams and holds her heart?

When Keely reappears in his life, Colin’s fairie blood threatens to gain the upper hand. Compelled to assist the lovely Halfling, he agrees to help her break the three-hundred-year-old curse on their families, but he'll do it on his terms—as a black wolf.

Together, two Halflings can stand against any power, but only love can break the bonds of bitterness. Will Colin’s arrogant plan to outwit the King of the Fairies doom Keely for eternity? Or is their love enough to break the curse?

that's a great blurb. It made me interested in the book and I'm not into paranormal/faerie stories. Good job and congrats!

Looking forward to it!! But one question ... can these faerie's grant wishes? If so ... I'd like to reserve a few ... ;)

I am so excited for you! I can't wait to read it. Of course, I'll have to steal Nicole's Kindle away from her for a few days.

This sounds fantastic. Ireland, faeries, a black wolf-- sold. :)

Why thank you, Karen. It was a blast to write and those three things would sell me too!
