#IWSG and The Miracle Girl

Today is the first Wednesday of the month, which means it’s time for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group. The Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG) is the brilliant idea of Alex J. Cavanaugh. The purpose of the group is to share doubts and insecurities and to encourage one another. Please visit the other participants and share your support. This month’s co-hosts today are Charity Bradford, S.A. Larsen, AJ, Tamara Narayan, Allison Gammons, and Tanya Miranda!

This month I’m releasing my novel, THE MIRACLE GIRL. Each time I release a new book, I’m a nervous wreck. A million questions and fears zip through my head, but the big ones are: Will the readers like it? Will it sale?

THE MIRACLE GIRL will be out on July 6th, but you can pre-order your copy now for only 99 cents. Details below.

TheMiracleGirl (1)

I’m super excited, and to be honest, nervous. So far the advance reviews have been awesome.

“The Miracle Girl is phenomenal!” Christine

“The best one yet.” Shellie

“I don’t often give 5 stars to books, but I loved this book.” Heidi

“Impossible to put down.”  Windowwasher

“I was hooked by the first sentence.” Cheryll

You can pre-order it here:

Amazon US       /      Amazon UK       /     Amazon Canada

If you have the time, I would really appreciate it if you added it to your Goodreads shelf by clicking here.

But wait, I haven’t told you what it’s about yet.

Here’s the synopsis:
Newspaper publisher and world traveler JJ Cavendish continually feels pressured to live up to her Miracle Girl nickname. Not many people know she’s living a carefully crafted lie. She may not hide ties to the LGBT community, but she does hide past struggles with addiction.

When the Colorado native is handpicked to take the helm at a dying Denver newspaper, she ends up reconnecting with her long lost love in this contemporary lesbian romance. Only there’s a catch. If JJ fires the most belligerent editor at the paper, she risks losing the love of her life.

Mid-afternoon office romps abound in this romantic comedy while also focusing on what it takes for a newspaper to remain relevant in this age of social media.

Must JJ lose everything in order to gain a life more fully her own?

It would be awesome if you could help me spread the word about pre-ordering THE MIRACLE GIRL for only 99 cents. Here’s a tweet you can copy and paste:

  26. The Guat says:

    Duuuuude you totally do your best every time so need to worry, but I get you. As writers we always worry about our masterpieces once they’re out there. Sending you positive vibes and congrats bud!

    • TBM says:

      Thanks Dude! And if you can manage a trip to the beach and send me positive vibes from the Pacific it’d be much appreciated.

  27. Sounds like a strong character and plenty of conflict–good for you!

  28. Loni Townsend says:

    Congrats on the new release! I wish you much luck and many sales!

  29. ethornberg says:

    Thanks, TBM. I ordered The Miracle Girl. I’m not surprised that writers, like the rest of us, get insecure sometimes. It’s hard (and maybe a bit phony?) to be confident all the time.


    • TBM says:

      That’s very true. It’s hard to believe anyone when they say they aren’t nervous about certain things. Hope all is well.

  30. Release time is never easy for me, so I can relate. I’m almost done with the book. I’m enjoying it lots.

  31. cleemckenzie says:

    It seems I’ve returned from vacation just in time to congratulate you on your launch! Great job, TBM.

  32. Congratulations on the new book!
    I LOVE that cover!
    I’m off to tweet now.
