My friend Cheyenne Blue has a new book out and has stopped by to tell you all about it. (Note from Harper: I have read the book and LOVED it!)
What is the Universe trying to tell me?
By Cheyenne Blue
I have a new book out. My fourth novel Party Wall is out now from Ylva Publishing and available everywhere. I’m really excited. And this release day, I was doubly excited. Like many writers, I have a day job. Nothing too exciting—I’m a litigation paralegal—but I enjoy it. The last two of my book releases though, my day job threw a massive spanner in the works both times. When Not-So-Straight Sue was released back in September 2016, I was flat out with trial preparation on a massive case. Twelve hour days. Overtime. Weekends. Then the trial happened. And guess which day Fenced-In Felix was released? Yup, the first day of trial.
Originally, Ylva Publishing scheduled Party Wall for release on 18 October. So far so good. But that same trial that scuppered my enjoyment of the release days for Sue and Felix? Well we lost at trial so we had to appeal. And the appeal date? Yup, you guessed it. 18 October.
Luckily, Ylva brought forward the release for Party Wall to 20 September. It was suddenly a lot easier to be cheerful. Finally, I’d have a release date that I could wholeheartedly enjoy. Talk about my book to friends, scream it on social media. Crack a bottle of bubbles with my partner. But then, on 19 September a whole bunch of people at my day job, including me, got served with redundancy notices and told we had to reapply for the few positions left. So instead of enjoying Party Wall’s release, I was dusting off my resume and getting caught up in the spiral of negativity and woe that was work.
At this point, I was seriously wondering what the universe was trying to tell me.
It ended well, for me at least. I got my job back and the next day I got a promotion and a pay rise. Party Wall is out in the world and even though I still have yet to enjoy a release day for one of my books, Party Wall is out there, and that means a lot. The very cheerful Lily and the rather introspective Freya and their love story is available everywhere. I would love it if you would read their story.
From the moment Freya looks in the window of the brash, new sex shop in Grasstree Flat she knows it will be nothing but trouble. For a start, it will clash with her own New Age store right next door. And she’s right. Outgoing newcomer, Lily, begins to intrude on Freya’s well-ordered life. Freya’s friends, lifestyle, and even her cat are all affected by Lily’s magic touch. Even Freya’s yoga classes rub shoulders with Lily’s sexual-expression workshops. Lily stands for everything Freya has lost in life: playfulness, spontaneity, and delight in the physical. And sex. But does Lily have more in common with Freya than the wall that divides them?
A lesbian romance about crossing the lines that hold us back.
