It's not every day I get to write about the release of my own mother's Debut Novel!!
Above is a picture of said novel; 'Dangerous Deceit' by Romy Gemmell, which is a Regency Romance set in England. It's available now on e-book through the publshers Champagne Books: http://champagnebooks.com
and on Amazon Kindle. The print version should be out in a couple of months.
This is a blurb about the book:
Lydia Hetherington is uninterested in society balls or marriage, until her brother's friend, Lord Marcus Sheldon, rides into her life to unseat her from her horse and unsettle her heart. An undercover spy for the government, Sheldon is equally unsettled by Lydia.
Complicated by a French spy, her best friend's unrequited love for Lydia's brother, James, and a traitorous villain, Lydia gradually finds her emotions stirred by Lord Sheldon. But what is his relationship with the beautiful Lady Smythe and his part in an old scandal? Lydia faces danger before all deception is uncovered and love claims its reward.
I'm very excited and proud to be able to talk of my Mum's success as it is much deserved! Getting caught up in all of the excitement of the release of a debut novel is making me realise how satisfying (but exhausting) the whole experience can be. 'Romy' has put in a lot of hard work and perserverance in order for the book to be completed and accepted for publication and the hard work continues with the promotion! I think my Mum would agree though that it's all worth it?!
She's an inspiration to all writers who are sitting with half written (or completed books) which are festering away on a computer/in a drawer (ahem). Nothing will ever come of it if you don't get on and get the stuff out there! (I'm lecturing myself here).
Today is the cyber launch of Dangerous Deceit so get on over to Romy's Regency Romance blog to join in all the fun!!
