Sam and Erik are the characters in my first book, Finding Sam, and today the book officially turned two years old. It’s not a huge thing to buy cakes and light candles for but it’s big for me because I didn’t celebrate their first book birthday last year.
I was too busy writing Loving Ashe and hoping to meet my word count for NaNoWriMo. Well, not this time.
Here’s the updated blurb for Finding Sam, along with its updated cover. The paperback should be finalized in a day or two.
Sam Martin just can’t catch a break.
A single mother with an ex-husband who won’t take no for an answer, she’s seen all her dreams shattered one by one. But it takes the death of her best friend to make Sam realize that she’s got to take charge of her life once and for all, even if it’s going to be the hardest thing she’ll ever do. For when one’s life is met by one disappointment after another – from growing up with a drug-addicted mother and moving from foster home to foster home – how can she expect anything else?
But for her son’s sake, Sam knows she has to try…
When she meets community doctor Erik Maystrom and his widowed sister, Olivia, they show her a world filled with possibilities, from returning to her art to a life filled with love and family. It’s a whole new world for Sam and her son, but will she welcome it with open arms or will she let the pain of her past take over only because it’s the only thing she knows?
Do happily ever afters really exist for scarred souls like Sam?
