With help from Misty Evans and Dale Mayer – and thumbs up from my CPs, Liz Kreger and Michelle Diener – I have a blurb for Miracle Lane. The 3rd Miracle Interrupted story won’t be out until next month or even October. (This was the novella that was originally supposed to be out in July, but it turned into a novel.) Though Miracle Lane still has to go through editing, I’m very happy with it. I’m very happy with the blurb, too. Here it is:
She forgot how to hate, and now she’s learning how to love…
Brain-damaged Nia Beaudine can’t remember her life before The Accident. Someone intentionally ran over her and left her for dead. Now she’s living in the ‘witch’s house’ she inherited in the village of Miracle, relearning how to live on her own. Well, almost on her own – the talking cat helping her cope is a bonus. But when a hate-filled family member shows up with a gun, Nia knows she needs real help.
Former Army Sergeant and PTSD sufferer Rob Ackerman regularly covers for his identical twin, the village constable, and answers Nia’s emergency call. This strange young woman immediately sees he’s not his brother. In return, he sees that the only way she can fully live in her new life is to find out why someone in her old life tried to kill her…and might try again.
As they dig up Nia’s past, the attraction between them grows. Their brains may be damaged, but their bodies and hearts are working just fine.
You can see by the description that I have too much going for a novella. When I was halfway through I thought it should be a book. But I had a deadline with an editor, so I pulled back. Next time I’ll know better. I’m the kind of person who’s usually early or on time. But this isn’t about being late; this is about putting out the best book I can.
What about you? Are you usually late, early or on time?
