Welllllll, it looks like it might be time for us to leave the otters to play for a few months and start talking about a new book. (For the record, Hollie and Ryan will make a comeback. Theirs is a story that asks for continuation.)
In the interim, though, I’d like to introduce you to Jayne Dandy, her BFF Gretchen, a cutie-pie named Luke who actually makes pie in his food truck, and a troubled, one-eyed cat named Quack.
OUR COVER REVEAL will be on July 11. If you’re a blogger interested in participating, Candace with Candace’s Book Blog / CBB Book Promotions will be handling this. CLICK HERE FOR THE FORM.
Coming your way in August from Eliza Gordon / West 26th Street Press, NYC
If you find yourself talking to Jayne Dandy, keep the conversation on Star Wars and rubber ducks—best not to mention men, dating, or S-E-X. Because Jayne is fine with the way things are: writer of obituaries and garage sale ads by day, secret scribe of adventures in distant galaxies by night. But her crippling fear of intimacy has made her the butt of jokes since forever, and hiding behind her laptop isn’t going to get her lightsaber lit.
After her therapist recommends that she write erotica as a form of exposure therapy, Jayne joins forces with pen and paper to combat the demons that won’t let her kiss and tell. Unexpectedly downsized at work, she adopts a pseudonym and secretly self-publishes one of her naughty books to make ends meet. When her adorable, long-time friend Luke, co-owner of the popular Portland food truck Luke Piewalker’s, hears she’s been demoted, he insists on hiring her to sling éclairs and turnovers at his side. Her secret must be kept, but sparks ignite between them, sending Jayne and her X-Wing into a tailspin that will either make her face down her neuroses or trigger a meltdown of Death Star proportions.
READER DISCRETION IS ADVISED. This book contains coarse language, mature themes, and discussions of a sexual nature. Despite the book’s premise, however, it does not contain erotic content. (Irony is fickle, ain’t she?)
