Emerald City.




Congratulations, Yvonne! I will send your email to Alicia's publisher and they'll be in contact soon!

I'm thrilled to share some exciting news with you today. My talented sister in law Alicia has written her very first novel titled Emerald City and it's set to be released April 10th. I'm about halfway through the book but couldn't keep silent any longer. Friends, it's so good! The reviews have been stellar and I can't help but think this novel might just be the next big thing. 

Here's a little teaser from Alicia's website:

"Olivia Tate is a broken shell of a girl haunted by the tragic events that fill her past. She has closed herself off from the world, each day grasping at something—anything—to live for. Convinced there will never be a way out, she seeks solace in the depths of her medicine cabinet. When she wakes up days later in the hospital she is introduced to Jude, the quiet stranger responsible for saving her life. She never could have guessed then that her mysterious rescuer would end up saving her life a second time, while simultaneously turning her world upside down."

Intriguing, right? Lucky for you, I'm giving away one hardback copy or ebook version of Emerald City, winner's choice. Just leave a comment on this post and I'll pick and announce a winner here Friday morning. Good luck! This is a book everyone will be talking about. 

If you can't wait until Friday to see if you're the winner, you can pre-order your copy of Emerald City right here.
