Bring on the Love

Posted on: November 19th, 2013 by Madison Lake No Comments

Hey y’all…my next book is finally – almost – ready to hit the shelves!

That’s right, Where Daffodils Grow Wild is up on the Friesen Press website and should be on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc. in another week or two. Yay. I was beginning to think it would never happen but the timing is actually ideal. It will be available for all you holiday shoppers – the perfect gift to stuff in his or her Christmas stocking or, buy A Cloud of Hawthorne and Where Daffodils Grow Wild (two in a series of three) to wrap for underneath the tree.

Okay, enough of the plug…but seriously folks, support.

On a different note, today I saw a young man (twenty-something cool dude) take the arm of an elderly women and help her across the street. It was raining and she seemed to be having difficulty, especially trying to make the light. Such a sweet, spontaneous gesture that took no time out of his life but made a world of difference in hers – and his. Good stuff. Bring on the love.

Today’s post is dedicated to my good friend and fellow scribe, Graffiti Bleu, whose newest book, Poet’s Pursuit of Pleasure – Simony Chiavary 2.5, is now available in paperback and Kindle via Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

I am pleased and honored to have had the opportunity to work with GB on this particular project. Liam Irish, the main character of my book, Salon Antics, made his way into Simony Chiavary 2.5 by way of a collaboration between two writers open enough to experiment with characters and storyline to connect different tales of erotica in a magical way. And Ms. Simony Chiavary became Liam’s past love interest in Salon Antics, a character who I never imagined, but who wove into some of my chapters like silk thread.

Although we’ve never met, it was GB’s creative brilliance that brought us and our fictional worlds together, and it worked. So it is with great pleasure I announce, share, and support GB in this fine, proud moment. GB, I salute you.

And mark your calendars for April 27th’s gigantic book launch of Simony Chiavary 2.5.
