Or Blatant Self Promotion.
When I first signed up to post weekly on this blog, Emily mentioned I could do some promo stuff occasionally. I've had a lot of books released since then and no driving need to post about it, but this is different. This is very different. All our previous books were with e-publishers, and so if they end up in print, it's trade paperback. Well, tomorrow, December 1, 2007 our first mass-market paperback, Chasing Silver will be in stores.
Chasing Silver is special to Vivien and me for a lot of reasons. For one thing, it is literally the first novel we ever wrote together. And we love this story so much. We love the characters. I don't know if any other book is so close to my heart.
Here is the blurb on the back of the book:
On the run in Washington, D.C. from a cop who cares more about inflicting pain than serving justice, Remy Capra grabs a handful of coins and jumps out a window. She lands seventy-five years back in time and across a continent in Los Angeles--at the feet of bounty hunter Nathan Pierce.
Remy isn't like any woman he's ever met. She's street-smart and sassy, but she needs help, and Nathan, against his own better judgment, offers it. Danger looms on all sides: Remy might be whisked back to her own time at any moment, a murderous gang lord is after them, and then there's the mystery of the Silver Maiden, a mystical coin with strange powers. Remy and Nathan may have a future--if she can evade her own past, and if they manage to keep alive in the ever-threatening present...
We want to celebrate. And we want everybody to celebrate with us. And in my entire life, I don't think I've ever experienced anything as exciting as knowing that my book is going to be in book stores across the country. I'd love to see some proof of it!
