Soooo happy today that Saving Alice, my Pocket Novel for My Weekly, has hit the shelves today! They bring a new one out every two weeks, so it won’t be out for long. They’re stocked by bigger stores such as WH Smiths and supermarkets. I’m hoping there’ll still be a copy in the shops when I next manage to get there on Saturday.
In the meantime, my lovely best friend has gone out to get a copy and even took a picture of the newsstand for me – orrrr.
Saving Alice is a sweet, modern romance. Here’s the blurb:
Naomi Graham is the best family lawyer in the country. But beneath her professional demeanour lies a broken heart. When the man who caused that heartache – billionaire ex-husband Toren Stirling – returns to her life after a 10-year absence, Naomi doesn’t want to know. But then Toren reveals he is fighting a custody battle over his young daughter Alice – and needs Naomi’s legal expertise to help him win.
Saving Alice might be a fairly quick read at 50k words, but it took a long time to write. I actually wrote 70k words, but had to cut 20k to fit the number of pages required for a Pocket Novel. I loved writing this book and was delighted when it came second in a romance writing competition in Australia.
If you do read Saving Alice, I hope you enjoy getting to know the characters as much as I enjoyed creating them. Especially the silver fox, Toren. He’s quite a dish!
