Getting Ready to Publish My New Cowboy Romance On the Trail of Love!
Totally different from my historical novels and novellas, my first contemporary cowboy romance tells the story of a girl who inherits a mechanical bull business. At her grandfather’s dying request she takes the bull, named Bill, out on the rodeo circuit one last time.
Here’s the blurb:
A grieving young woman with shattered dreams. An ex-convict with a heart of gold. And a former Marine who impacts both their lives.
My main character, Sadie O’Toole, also inherits her grandfather’s vintage 1959 Chevrolet Apache pickup, used to pull Bill’s trailer.
I had so much fun researching and choosing this truck to use in this cowboy romance story. I spoke with the family of a man who still owns the vintage Apache I used for my model. You can read his story here.
I’ve decided to self-publish because the story falls into the middle between sweet and sexy.
My agent submitted it to multiple publishers and I received some great feedback, but ultimately it’s too sweet for the average “sexy” cowboy romance, and because there is one scene where my characters sleep together, it’s not “clean” enough for the sweet cowboy romance category!
I’m looking for readers who’d be willing to read the story before its published and join the book launch team.
There will be all sorts of freebies and behind-the-scenes looks at what goes into publishing a book if you join the team!
If this story this piques your interest, or you’d like to learn more about being on a book launch team, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a wonderful day!
