It’s hard to believe just nine months ago I had my first novel, Epicurean Delights, published by Bold Strokes Books. Now there’s a second one, Stroke of Fate, ready for exclusive early release in Provincetown for Women’s Week (BSB release is November 1, 2018).
While I loved my debut, this one is a bit different in that it’s a romantic intrigue with a few twists and turns. Set around our nation’s Capital, it lends to insight into what “theoretically” happens behind the scenes. It also delves into the psyche of each character and what motivates them.
Jade is an author of lesbian romance, intrigue, and erotica. She is suddenly skyrocketed into the limelight when her latest novel hits the NY Times best sellers list. But fame comes with a price.
Sean Moore, an androgynous former member of the Secret Service, is the perfect person to keep Jade safe. She’s a character you can seek your teeth into (lightly at first). She’s always held high standards and is ethically above reproach, but she’s finding it difficult to hold that line after meeting Jade Rivers.
This was a fun endeavor for me. Not only because I loved everything about this story, but I also had the pleasure of working with my editor, Victoria Villasenor. She pushed me to be better, dig deeper, answer questions I hadn’t considered, and hone my craft to a higher standard. Thanks, Vic.
Then there is the extraordinary copy editor, Cindy Cresap, whose sharp eye catches all the “little things” I missed along the way.
Life has so much to offer, and I am in gratitude for the opportunity to share my work with you, faithful readers, and pull you along on this fantastic, magical ride. Stay tuned. There’s more in the works from me and my hope is that you enjoy each one.
Until next time…Renee
