Please don’t buy my new book! That is, if you subscribe or intend to subscribe to my newsletter. As a token of my appreciation, I offer my brand-new release, Season of Mercy, to my subscribers free. Of course, if you’d like to buy it here, who am to question such a kind gesture?
I didn’t intend to write this kind of book. Don’t get me wrong. I wanted to give a book as a gift for some time, and I knew it would be a contemporary Christian romance, sweet and heartwarming. But I never thought in my life that I’d write a marriage of convenience story! Then one day I had a calling. I could see these people in my mind’s eye who deserved a happily ever after, and the only way their story would work was in a marriage of convenience. I told myself that it was something new for me, that my readers might not like it, that I should continue to pen stories I knew through and through. But the longing to write Season of Mercy wouldn’t go away. So I took a deep breath and wrote it. I loved every minute of it.
Is a modern marriage of convenience the second chance they need or a road to heartache?
Left widowed, destitute, and emotionally hurt, Mercy Grant doesn’t intend to remarry, much less to a known player like Ethan Echeverría. Never mind that he’s her one-time teenage crush and a longtime friend. But when her son, Stevie, needs an expensive surgery, risking her heart is a small price to pay for her little boy’s happiness.
Ethan Echeverría leaves women before they have a chance to leave him the way his mother once abandoned him. Then his dad gives him an ultimatum: get married and become the owner of the family auto shop chain or stay single and lose it.
Considering Ethan has always cared for Mercy, getting married might result in more than ownership of the shops and a loving father for Stevie. It could be the second chance they need. Their feelings toward each other grow, but so does Mercy’s jealousy. When Ethan’s past crashes into his future, will she end up heartbroken and alone again?
I find getting myself out of my comfort zone again and again lately. I started designing my covers. I’m learning formatting, and that’s not easy for a non-techy girl like me. And now I’m publishing the type of story I never thought I’d write. I don’t like change. I don’t enjoy learning new things as much as I used to. But sometimes one has to take a leap of faith and try it. It might bring more joy than expected!
I was recently asked to read in front of a lot of people. Public speaking terrifies me, especially considering I have a very heavy accent. I really want to say yes. But what if people wouldn’t understand me?
Do you like trying new things? If so, what did you try lately? Or do you have to get out of your comfort zone and just do it?
I’d love to hear from you!
