She's showing both in abundance by launching her own publishing house, Winding Path Books, and its first novel is released in ebook form today!
BIGGER THINGS is now available around the world at Amazon and Smashwords. It will soon be available at iTunes, Kobo, Barnes & Nobles, and will be released as a trade paperback in August. I admit I've had early access and can confirm not only that I find this book funny, heartwrenching, and true, but that the synopsis is right on:
Best friends since childhood, Jen, Chelsea and Kyra know everything about each other. Or think they do.
Jen should be celebrating her whopping 121-pound weight loss. Instead she feels like she's betrayed fat girls everywhere. Will anyone love her for who she is inside, fat or thin? More importantly, will she?
Chelsea appears to have it all--a husband, a family, a beautiful home--but plaguing memories threaten to destroy everything. In her desperation to maintain control, will she succumb to a compulsion that costs her life?
Kyra is sick of the superficial persona she's worn for so long. It's exhausting to pretend to be an airhead while running a successful business. But if she sheds her life-of-the-party facade, will she ever find the boyfriend she thinks she needs?
When a nervous breakdown leaves one of them fighting to survive, all their secrets are laid bare. To stay friends, they need to battle personal dragons, confront the past, and embrace change. But can they break free from the roles they've played so long? Or must they leave one another behind in order to move forward?
If this sounds like a book you'd enjoy, give it a read and let me know what you think. Better than that, write a review at Goodreads, LibraryThing, Amazon, or anywhere else, and help small publishers and all authors to continue bringing us great stories.
Happy launch day, Ev!
