Yes, it's been cold lately, Then warm. Now cold again. But it's also February, and here in Minnesota we know to hunker down when it's 20 below, wind or no wind. When we do venture out, we remember that we're all in this together. Lots of kindness from strangers. Heart-warming stories become above-the-fold news made by ordinary people helping each other in extraordinary circumstances. That's the kind of story I love to read and write.
Let's call this perfect timing for my publisher's budget-friendly price on a page-turning romance. THE LAST GOOD MAN is available through all online retailers for $.99 (e-format) through February 15. We're betting readers will fall in love with THE LAST GOOD MAN in this award-winning novel about a woman who's lost her way and the man who's never stopped loving her. Look for an excerpt and links to a few retailers on my web page. http://www.kathleeneagle.com/thelastgoodman.html
Said Kirkus Reviews, "A good man is hard to find, but a romance by Eagle is a good place to start." But I will warn you that while readers fall in love with Clay Keough from the get-go, some find Savannah Stephens to be a bit more challenging. The woman has problems.
And therein lies a special story. When I started thinking about these two characters--my process always starts with: Who are these characters and how did they get here?--I realized that they were different from most. It's Clay who's the born care-taker, while Savannah is the one quietly drowning in desperation. What happens as they turn the tables on each other? It will cost you less than a dollar to find out. Okay, there's probably a few cents tax. In Minnesota we don't tax food or clothing, and books should be tax-free as well. Says Mrs. Eagle, ever the school teacher.
Get your Valentine boxes decorated, kids! Happy Valentine's Day! All my best, Kathleen
