I’ve got to make this a quick one, but I’ll make it good. :)
After lots of fine-tuning, too many edits and rewrites and changing of one chapter over and over again, I’ve finished it! When Girlfriends Take Chances, the fifth book in my chick lit collection, should be published and available on Amazon tomorrow—July 12!!
(It’ll make its way onto iTunes, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble next week if all goes according to plan.)
So just what is …Take Chances about? Without further ado, here you go!
A novel about exploring love and life’s path, and taking chances along the way.
Emily Saunders has never thought twice about grabbing her passport, rucksack, and camera and trekking across the globe. If there’s an NGO, a study abroad program, or simply the travel itch, Emily’s on the first plane out. Free-spirited, open-minded, and eager to explore, it’s no wonder Emily’s hardly in one spot (or relationship) for long.
For the past year-and-a-half, though, Emily’s found herself planted in her college hometown of Seattle. She’s surrounded by her best friends, has steady work as a photographer and at her friend Sophie’s café, and is certainly kept busy by the wild antics of her BFF Jackie. Life’s enjoyable, but Emily’s looking for something more. She’s ready for a change, for adventure!
But when Emily tells her girlfriends she’s ready for something new she does not expect Operation Blind Date!
Sure, Emily’s single. Sure, she hopes to some day find true love. But being thrown into an insane challenge like this is not exactly the adventure she had in mind! Couldn’t she just travel and focus on her photography? Or volunteer in Africa? Will a string of eligible bachelors lined up by her friends—a shot at finding a real and lasting love—really be that change she’s searching for?
This is a spirited story about seeking adventure while being true to yourself, wherever you are in life. It’s a story about love, risk, and self-discovery. About what happens when girlfriends take chances.
I hope you’ll enjoy Emily’s story. It’s one of my favorites and she’s such a fun and unique leading lady. I really adored writing this book.
