Married Before Midnight is Available Today

Dear Reader,

I am excited.

Well, DELIRIOUS maybe the best word.

About Married Before Midnight.

About two wonderful characters who haunted me for weeks. And about a wonderful, inspiring and plucky canine  companion named Cody.

This is my first book in a new contemporary series set in Oregon, in this same world as my Summer Island prior series but with all new characters and plots. Yes, I’ve left Harlequin and I’m bringing this one out independently.  Why did I go independent?  You may well ask!

At Harlequin I routinely had to wait a year and a half for a book to be released AFTER I had finished all the work on it. Also I did not have control over the kinds of books I could write.  Or my covers. I couldn’t bear that. Nor could my readers.  :-/

So I packed up… And I went indie!

This first book will not be available in a print edition. It is very expensive pricing as an independent author. My plan is to bring out the first TWO books in the new Brides Club series together in a print box set, probably in February.  And each print book will be hand signed by me.

:-)

Here is an except to Married Before Midnight.

Married Before Midnight Recieved 4 Stars

MARRIED BEFORE MIDNIGHT
by Christina Skye

Genre: Contemporary Romance, General Contemporary Romance
Sensuality: HOT

RT Rating 4 stars.

Memories are the key driver of versatile Skye’s launch book in her touching new independently published Brides Club series, which features a heroine hell-bent on running from her memories and a hero desperately trying to recover his. Both of these individuals are severely damaged and their journey, not only to romance but emotional healing, is what makes this tale so compelling. Skye showcases once again why she is such an exceptional storyteller!

Cognitive therapist Annie Monroe is fleeing from the dark memories that haunt her. Annie’s flight has taken her across the country with her only companion being Cody, a dog she recently rescued. However, something is wrong with Cody and Annie is forced to stop in Summer Island, Ore. With no money to pay, Annie agrees to help out the local vet while he diagnoses Cody’s problem. Lt. Jared Fallon is still recovering from injuries sustained in Afghanistan. Most worrisome are Jared’s missing memories regarding the nightmarish ambush and the cave he found filled with weapons. Jared is scheduled to testify in two weeks and so far nothing has helped restore his memories. Fate has brought these wounded individuals together, can they help each other heal? (STEEL MAGNOLIA, Nov., 230 pp., $5.99)

More news about Married Before Midnight

Married Before MidnightI am excited.
No,  DELIRIOUS may be the best word.

About Married Before Midnight.

About two wonderful characters who haunted me for weeks. And about a wonderful, inspiring and plucky canine companion named Cody.

Welcome to my first book in an emotional new contemporary series set in Oregon.  Married Before Midnight is set in this same world as my Summer Island series.

But now you are going to meet all  new characters and discover a dramatic, richly emotional plot which stretches over four books. Right… four new books are headed your way!

Let me tell you more. ..

Yes, I’ve left Harlequin and I’m bringing this series out independently.  Why did I go independent?  You may well ask!

At Harlequin I routinely had to wait a year and a half for a book to be released after I had finished all the work on it. Also I did not have control over the kinds of books I could write.  Or my covers. I couldn’t bear that. Nor could my readers.  You told me that often!

So I packed up… And I went indie!

( And for all you Draycott Abbey fans, this is important because I am working on new Draycott books.  More news on that in the next few months.)

You may be surprised and you may be disappointed by what I’m going to tell you next.
This first book will not be available in a print edition. Print editions involve   very expensive pricing for an independent author. So if you will help me and be a little patient, here is my plan.

I  will bring out the first TWO books in the new Brides Club series together in a print box set, probably in February.  And each print book will be hand signed by me.

:-)

But first, I need to launch book one well and smoothly.  And you can help me do that by spreading the word and giving Annie and Jared a chance to find their audience.

Here is a special excerpt to entice you.

Excerpt One: http://www.christinaskye.com/wordpress/books/married-before-midnight/excerpt-one/

Excerpt Two: http://www.christinaskye.com/wordpress/books/married-before-midnight/excerpt-two/

Loaded Corn Chowder Recipe: http://www.christinaskye.com/wordpress/books/married-before-midnight/recipe-loaded-corn-chowder-soup/

Enjoy.

I want to keep this new book very price-friendly to my wonderful readers,  so the book will available for a very limited time for $.99. Links to purchase MARRIED BEFORE MIDNIGHT will be up on my blog, website and Facebook on October 1st.  Note that it will not be $.99 beyond a week.
