Happy New Year from Kaira Rouda to YOU!
I don’t know about you but 2015 came on so quickly I’m hustling to get
everything in order. But that’s what is so exciting about the new year. It’s
time to reflect and to take action, and most especially, time to try something
new. And in that spirit, I’d love it if you would consider giving my
award-winning and bestselling women’s fiction novels a try. And right now,
until January 15th, the novels are just 99 cents for your eReader
and my short story is FREE! How’s that for an enticing deal?
Let me tell you a little about each
Here, Home, Hope – my very
first novel – is a story of reinvention perfect for the New Year. Kelly Johnson becomes restless
in her thirty-ninth year. An appetite for more forces her to take stock of her
middling middle-American existence and her neighbors’ seemingly perfect lives.
Her marriage to a successful attorney has settled into a comfortable routine,
and being the mother of two adorable sons has been rewarding. But Kelly’s own
passions lie wasted. She eyes with envy the lives of her two best friends,
Kathryn and Charlotte, both beautiful, successful businesswomen who seem to
have it all. Kelly takes charge of her life, devising a midlife makeover plan
and a clever Things to Change list.
Maybe you’ll want to create one along with her? (Here, Home, Hope has 132 Amazon reviews and an average of 4.2
stars, won the Indie Excellence Award and The Writer’s Digest International
Award for mainstream fiction.)
My other novel on special for the New Year
is In the Mirror the story of
Jennifer Benson, a woman who seems to have it all. Diagnosed with cancer, she
enters an experimental treatment facility to tackle her disease the same way
she tackled her life - head on. But while she's busy fighting for a cure,
running her business, planning a party, staying connected with her kids, and
trying to keep her sanity, she ignores her own intuition and warnings from
others and reignites an old relationship best left behind. The novel asks the
poignant question: What choices would you make if you knew you may die soon? (In the Mirror also won the Indie
Excellence Award and the Reader’s Choice Award, and has 53 Amazon reviews and
an average of 4.4 stars.)
And finally, for those of you who love short stories, and especially, FREE short stories,
I’d love it if you’d read mine. A
Mother’s Day is a story that tackles the big issues of life and death with
candor and hope in this tribute to motherhood. A tragic event reawakens each
woman to her own special gifts, and her love for family and friends is reborn.
Three mothers. Three sons. Six lives that will be changed forever.
Hopefully, you’ll have a chance to give
one or all three of these books a try. And if you’re a romance fan, please consider
my contemporary romance series set on a South Carolina Sea Island. The Indigo
Island Series includes: Weekend with the
Tycoon, Lines in the Sand and The
Trouble with Christmas. More books in the series will be out this year!
Last year was my first time ever writing
romance and I loved it. (Pun intended.) This year, I plan to write more
romance, more women’s fiction and continue to try new things. I hope you keep
trying new things, too. I have this Eleanor Roosevelt quote in my office: Do one thing every day that scares you.
