On January 7, 2012 my first novel, Autumn Colors will celebrate its first full year in print. It’s been a great year, with sales exceeding my goals in spite of the rather high price set by the publisher on both the paperbacks and the e-books. Thanks to all of you who purchased it, and shared or recommended it to your friends and family.
To mark the occasion, I will be offering a special sale price for anyone ordering the book between now and January 7. If you order copies directly through my website during that time, I will send you a signed soft cover copy for just $9.99! Place your orders for the anniversary discount books through my website, http://www.dawnlajeunesse.com, using the Buy button on the Purchase tab.
Additionally, I will be holding a contest to win one hard cover copy and one soft cover copy during this first week of the new year.
If you are the first to answer question #1 correctly, you will win the hard cover copy.
If you are first to answer question #2 correctly, you will win the soft cover copy.
(Hint: the answers can be found on my website!)
Question # 1
Why was main character Kerry afraid to get involved with Tom?
Question # 2
Why did I become a nurse?
Post your answers to the questions as comments to my blog. Winners will be announced as the winning answer comes in, but no later than January 7th.
(If you are strictly an e-book reader, you can purchase Autumn Colors for Kindle or Nook through Amazon and B&N. Unfortunately, I can’t control the price on those, but they are available for $9.99.)
Autumn Colors tells the story of Kerry and Charles, who have been married twenty years. However, Kerry never really said goodbye to her first fiancé, Tom, who was lost to her forever nearly thirty years ago. Charles is a loving and patient man, but the persistent presence of Tom gradually erodes their relationship. Just when she finally discovers what she has been throwing away for all of these years, her husband leaves her. Is it too late for them? Has she repeated with Charles the same pattern that had kept Tom at arm’s length for so long? What will it take for Kerry to prove her love to Charles?
