Whew! I knew I’d been away from my blog for a little bit, but I didn’t realize it was almost two and a half months!
Well, during that time away I had been absorbed practically 12-hours a day working on my debut novel, Carla’s Rivet, and after four months of creation, writing, typesetting, cover design, editing (and correcting edits made by editors/beta readers/writing group) – it is finally finished!
I am simultaneously elated, exhausted, and amazed. I can not only see this book available for sale online, but I have copies to hold in my hand. I’m holding my book… I’m holding my thoughts. Thoughts really are things!
I won’t bog down this post with self-aggrandizing. Suffice it to say – I’m astonished to have made my goal a reality. It wasn’t easy and there were a lot of tears and frustration along the way… but it’s done and I had to shout it from the rafters. Huzzah!
So now, I present to you “Carla’s Rivet.” Below you will find what the book is about, and I hope that if you find it interesting, you’ll take a closer look and perhaps purchase a copy to help support a brand new writer on her journey. Thank you!
“Carla Flores, a homeless ex-cop, is living her nightmares. Her mind, a juxtaposition of real life, night terrors, and cocaine, leaves her isolated on the streets of Albuquerque. She constantly struggles to rid herself of the memories that overlay her waking hours – a traumatic shootout during a case of mistaken identity, being overpowered and taken hostage while her partner lay dying. The dangers of the long nights seem ready to swallow her completely until she is found by an unlikely companion – a stray dog named Rivet. Carla’s only salvation in a city that has forgotten her walks on four feet – a life line out of the darkness and into the light.”
