Well, I did a thing and I wrote a book. And I finished it. And everything. It's been a while guys, thanks for hanging in there. If any of you are still out there reading my blog—I know I've been lax about that too. Thanks for bearing with me, I love all of you <3
This idea sprouted from watching some show on HGTV of all things. If you don't know this about me, I love watching home makeover shows and also shows about people looking to buy a house and then making ridiculous comments about said house. "Oh, I don't like this paint color." "I HATE carpeting." As if they will never change anything inside once they buy it.
Anyway, HGTV has regular shows called Beachfront Bargains and Lakehouse Living. They are essentially Househunters, but one takes place on a beach the other on a lake, you get the picture. I stumbled across this one in Alaska. It may have been one of the Lakehouse Living shows, or it could have been its own special Alaska thing, I honestly don't remember. But it kickstarted this crazy story in my brain. I am an east coast girl, I've lived my entire life within an hour driving distance to two metropolitan areas. The thought of completely removing myself from that and plunging into the Alaska Frontier got my creative juices flowing. And that is where this book came from.
Here, I will introduce you to Kate. She's from New York City, she's lived her whole life on the east coast and now she decides she needs a change. So, she responds to an online ad, and unknowingly gets herself involved in a triage relationship. Not only is she dealing with the culture shock of being in the remote wilderness, but she's also dealing with a relationship dynamic she was unprepared for. It was fun to write. And I hope, it will be fun to read.
I'll stop blabbing and let you read an excerpt. Hopefully you'll like what you see and stay tuned for more. Release date will be later this week!
Ben and Aaron are living a nearly ideal existence. They have a close-knit community that understands their lifestyle and a good life out in remote Alaska. The trouble is, it can be hard to find a woman with their shared interests. With their options being limited, Ben places an online ad looking for a woman. When Kate pops into their life they both know that nothing will ever be the same. She's smart, funny, and she is undeterred by their lifestyle, even though she is unaware before she agrees to fly out to meet them. But can they trust that her intentions are pure? Can the three of them find a way to follow their hearts?
