There is literally nothing like holding a book you’ve written for the first time, especially when receiving the ARC was a huge surprise! I had the pleasure of meeting my publisher in-person for the first time the other night. When she placed the ARCs in front of me, I swear some people must’ve thought she’d proposed. 😂 (A squeal, a few tears, you get the picture!) ____ As a huge bonus, I shared the experience with @heidimastrogiovanni, an incredible human and writer whose second novel releases soon, too! See a photo of all three of us, post “proposal,” on Heidi’s profile. And follow her, because she rocks! ____ I’m so in love with this gorgeous cover, designed by Roberta Zeta. 😍 Hardcovers and e-books will release August 7th of this year. Soooo thankful and excited. @amberjackpublishing ____ #GirlBoner #GirlBonerRadio #bookstagram #advancedreaderscopy #ARC #writersofinstagram #books #womensempowerment
IN HER SHADOW
One woman locked in a basement, nearing death and longing for escape. Another baffled by the inexplicable symptoms wreaking havoc on her life. Both are lost and alone, yet somehow connected. And time is running out…
Near the tenth anniversary of her parents’ unexpected death, Claire Fiksen, a lovely young Harvard-grad and gifted psychologist in Minnesota, develops bizarre symptoms of an eating disorder that threaten her fledgling career, her relationship with a handsome young medical student, her grasp on reality and, soon, her life.
When her beloved grandfather reveals that there may be more to her parents’ death than she’s realized, Claire’s pursuit of healing becomes a desperate search for answers as she delves into her family’s sordid past. Meanwhile, someone is watching her every move, plotting to draw her into her own twisted web of misery.
Claire has something he needs, and he’ll stop at nothing to obtain it. Every step Claire takes brings her closer to the truth and danger. And her life, she discovers, isn’t the only one at stake.
