Exciting weekend!

My nerves are all a buzz. There are two exciting happenings in the world of Angela Carlie this weekend. I've had to reach deep to find the patience not to spill the beans on the first event, which is the cover reveal for my debut adult novel, JENNY'S BLUE VELVET. More on this below.

On Sunday, Fred and I are going to run in our first half marathon. This is something we've been working toward all year. This time last year we ran our first 5K. The goal for this run is to just finish. Now, Fred is much more of a runner than I ever will be. I'm just so excited to cross that finish line! I bet it'll feel amazing!

Xpresso Book Tours has done a wonderful job at organizing the cover reveal for JENNY'S BLUE VELVET. Steven Novak is the fabulous cover designer who made this cover possible. When I received the list of bloggers participating, I was surprised how many signed up. I figured that maybe a handful would be interested, but exactly sixty-nine bloggers are participating. Sixty-nine is a lucky number, right? Well, I think it is... Take a moment to check some of these awesome bloggers out!

Have you checked 'em out? Aren't they cool? Well, even though you've probably now seen the cover, I'd still like to share it here. This is the moment we've all been waiting for!  hehe

The One...
The Only...

Jenny's stuck.

She's tried just about every occupation she can think of and will be digging out of student debt for a very long time, but has nothing to show for it. Her everyday routine feels like a prison. And her marriage? Well, let's just say it's been a little one-sided lately and the money she threw down on the toys from Lover's Erotic Store was well worth it and then some.

Jenny decides her next big step is to become a romance writer. Romance books are flying off the virtual shelves, after all. This will be her big break, her escape from the prison, and a way to freedom. Self-publishing is all the rage these days. She'll be a best seller in no time.

When Jenny makes friends with a woman named Cassandra from the gym, she instantly decides that her new friend will make a perfect main character in her upcoming book. After the first chapter, real life begins to resemble the fiction she's writing. Her friendship blossoms, sex with her husband turns into a daily feast, and her job gets more interesting with each chapter written.

Out of the blue, a person who is a close friend with her husband and who is dating Cassandra disappears. As the mystery behind the missing person unfolds, Jenny wonders if she might be responsible for his possible death. And if she is, what will be the consequence? What has this writing business gotten her into?

JENNY'S BLUE VELVET is a dark thriller for adults only
