Initially when I published A Woman Lost, my debut novel, I didn’t have plans to continue the story. However, many readers emailed asking me if I was working on a sequel. At first I was hesitant. And then some ideas started to pop into my head. I’m a thinker. I let ideas percolate for weeks before I dive into a new project. After mulling everything over I decided to give it a go.
Today I’m happy to report that the sequel is now available for pre-order on Amazon for only 99 cents. Once A Woman Ignored is released on Monday, February 23, the price will go up to $2.99.
Here’s the blurb:
Historian Lizzie Petrie remains nothing more than a lesbian in her bitter mother’s eyes. The suppressed hurt of that superficial assessment means she still catches herself off guard when thinking of Sarah as her wife. The couple has endured the fallout of Lizzie’s insecurities and set-up house in Fort Collins, Colorado. Now their relationship is about to be tested again.
When her wife announces she wants to have a baby, Lizzie panics. A baby? The thought of sucking an egg from her ovary and implanting the resulting embryo into Sarah’s womb terrifies her. Lizzie constantly worries if she’ll make a good mother.
Just when she starts to make peace with the idea, Lizzie’s estranged family enters her life again. The news is anything but good, and she finds herself wondering how to make amends with her aloof mother, stranger of a father, and self-centered brother.
Deep down, Lizzie is more loving and caring than she ever gives herself credit. Sometimes it takes a tragedy to open a woman’s eyes to her full potential. But at what price?
This is my first time writing a sequel and I’m very curious to see how fans like it. To be frank, I’m nervous. However, I’m always nervous when I release a new book. Only time will tell.
If you have the time, it would be a great help if you could add the book to your to read shelf on Goodreads. Thanks so much!
