Coming Soon and Volunteers Needed

 

I’ve been working on getting three short stories ready for ebook reading pleasure for this summer. They will be released one at a time. The Partner’s Progeny will be the first one.

I’m so excited! The cover was approved yesterday. YAY!! And its really hard for me to keep it under wraps.

I’m pushing for the week of June 3rd to reveal it. The names of volunteers will be put in a drawing to win a 10 dollar Amazon card.

Also, I need at least 10 peeps who would like to read the ARC for reviews. Its no longer than 5 thousand words.

Here’s the blurb:

Bullies rule…or do they?

Victoria Sheek has been the paralegal supervisor for the law firm of Pereene, Carr, and Sevino for seventeen years. Rumors portray her as a bully. She maintains confident that she will never be replaced since her father; Mr. Carr, is one of the founding partners.

Until one day Monica Bowman is hired by Mr. Pereene, the head partner, and is apparently smitten with her resemblance to his deceased granddaughter, Melissa, and his memories of her.

Who will end up staying? Monica or Victoria. One will stay, but not without a surprising twist.

So let me know if you want to help reveal the cover down in the comment box.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. Sweetman and I are looking forward to the chemo-free days ahead. He’s finished with it. Over the next several months he’ll be scanned and prodded to make sure all is good.

Thank all of you for your prayers, well-wishes, and good vibes.

Hugs and chocolate,

Shelly

  1. Shelley, I don't know if it's just me but is " She maintains confident... " the right wording? She remains confident or she maintains confidence seem to roll better with me - but I am no English expert or grammar police, just thought I'd mention it to A) be helpful if it is an oversight or B) prove just how stupid I can be at times ;D I am not sure if I would be much help for revealing a cover - it's not the theme of my blog, but maybe I can award you a Leibster that week and somehow subliminally advertise it for you :)

    1. Now that I re-read this, probably not. Thanks. I've rewritten this thing over and over.

  2. Hi Shelly, I can do a cover reveal for you on Monday June 3rd.
    There are a few other SPaG issues in the blurb, but I'm kind of a nitpicker when it comes to passive voice. As you know.

      Thank you. I'll email you tomorrow since I've got writing to do before I head to the hair lopping establishment.

  4. I don't want to commit myself to any reading right now as I've got too much going otherwise. However I could slip a cover reveal into one of my posts scheduled for that week. Just send info to jacksonlee51 at aol dot com.

  8. I'm so happy to hear your husband's chemo is over. I wish him a quick recovery and no recurrence. It's thrilling you're putting out stories. Yay for you! I don't really read or do reviews, but I'm sure you'll get lots of takers. :-)

  10. Dear Shelly,
    I'm happy to read and cover but I'm not a grammar expert and I wouldn't want to offend you in any way. I think you're so sweet! That being said, send it over and I'll just check anything that's glaring. If something sticks out too much then I'll let you know. Is that good? Hugs, Eve
