Announcing...Release of My First Novel!

I am so excited, that I just have to share this with you!

As many of you know, for the past two years or so I've been writing a novel. It's been a long haul and a bit of struggle to get it finished and ready for publication. But
Forty-Thirty was finally released yesterday. Yet another banner day in the life of this fledging author and Literary Blogger!

Forty-Thirty is a coming-of-age historical novel set in both a small New York suburban village in the 1960s and Italy at the turn of the last century. Here's the description that appears on the back cover:

"Josephine Angelina McIvers is a teenager in the mid-1960s, the tumultuous era of a class-conscious America in the throes of the Vietnam War. Under the shadow of an overly protective mother, she matures into adulthood, coping with true love found and then lost. Immersing herself in playing tennis, she ventures forth into the world to find personal as well as professional fulfillment. On her coming-of-age journey, Josey learns that scoring points both in the sport of tennis and the game of life is not as easy as she thought it would be. Set in a small suburban village just outside of New York City, this is an enjoyable, yet poignant novel about growing up and discovering one’s true self and one’s place on and off the courts of the world." 

Okay, I'm not going to bore you with how good I think it is. I am not going to regale you with the salient details of its multi-faceted, complex plot line that took me months to figure out. And I'm not even going to beg you on both knees to "please, please, please" hike over to amazon.com and buy a copy or two. (It's available in both paperback and Kindle format.) But I do ask that you take a look at the wondrous review of my novel on www.authorexposure.com.

I really hope that after you read the review you will be intrigued and inclined to please buy a copy and enjoy reading Forty-Thirty as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

Thank you!
