Being Lara is released TODAY!!!!!!

Posted on by lola in Uncategorized | Comments Off

Available wherever books are sold in the USA;

Yes, that’s ALL 50 States!!!

Being Lara is my 4th book and you know what? The excitement of release day/week/month never fades. This feeling NEVER get’s old. Those of you who have followed me from Day One on my unpublished author blog,will know the ‘struggles’  I went through to get that first publishing deal which started with By The Time You Read This… (that book was my first PUBLISHED book but by know means the first I’d written.)

It really gives me joy when I receive an email or a Twitter post from a newly published author saying; ‘I read your Blog and it gave me hope…’

What a joy.
Because authors like Lisa Jewell and Lolita Files gave me hope when I was unpublished.

Now, Lolita has written a quote for Being Lara and Lisa Jewell wrote one for By The Time You Read This…  

Wow.

Has all this really happened?

Yes It has and I thank God, my agents, publishers, my family, readers everyone!!!!!!!!!!

Being Lara  is out TODAY. Available in all independent book stores,  Barnes and Noble, Target, Amazon…

UK readers: may be able to purchase a copy at The Book Depository  and of course, it’s also available as an e-book wherever e-books are sold.

 

Now, I’ve just finished a radio interview with the lovely Dr Alvin and I may have a celebratory cupcake… or two… after I change out of my dressing gown!!!!

A review of Being Lara appears in EBONY MAGAZINE TODAY!!!!!

….. As this is a USA based magazine, it will take a few days for it appears in the UK – so I haven’t had a chance to look at the review.

I have known about this for a few months now and when I found out I literally screamed the place down.

Ebony is aspirational. A dream magazine. And I feel so blessed.

Needless to say; I can’t wait to see it!

 

The lovely, beautiful, talented  and much missed Whitney Houston is on the front cover.

 

Being Lara is out NEXT WEEK…!

….. And to celebrate I’m giving away a few copies to anyone who writes the best poem,  posted here  in the comments section of my Blog.

Doesn’t have to be long. A few lines will do – whatever you like. BUT nothing X Rated, political or littered with swear words (as IF you would!).  Oh and the poem must include the following

  • POTATOES

  • SOCKS

  • RED BUS

  • CUPCAKES

Yes, they are a bit random, but should make for a fun read…

Happy Writing!!

Winner announced soon – so get them in NOW!
