DUAL INNOCENCE is now published and out in the world.
I am so thrilled with the response I've received so far. The book has 4.5 stars on Amazon!
I've been dreaming of this day for YEARS. It was one of those dreams that was fun to fantasize about, but I never thought I'd actually see it come true.
Then one day, I decided to make it real.
That day was about 18 months ago. It started with a goal to find a literary agent.
I queried for months. A few agents requested further information, but for the most part I got a bunch of "no, thank you" responses.
After a bunch of research, I determined that this particular book would probably never land an agent.
It doesn't fit into a single genre.
I've categorized it as Romantic Suspense, but most books in that genre have adult themes (aka sex scenes). This book doesn't!
If I really wanted to land an agent, I could've went back and added those scenes. But it didn't feel true to the story. There's a reason I didn't add those scenes in the first place, and I don't want to add them simply because popular media told me to.
But I knew the book could have an audience. There are a LOT of people out there who like romantic suspense novels, EVEN without the adult themes.
If I wanted this story to see the light of day, I knew it would have to be done through self-publishing.
So I did my research. For MONTHS.
When I felt confident that I at least KIND OF knew what I was doing, I took the leap.
I haven't looked back since.
The first reviews and feedback are trickling in, and I'm so grateful to know that my instinct was right. There ARE people who love this story (besides just me!).
And not just this story... I have SO MUCH more to write and share.
I've got some big announcements coming soon (about the rest of the series), so stay tuned!
