What I Learned This Week – 6/21/15

Posted on

This week I learned that the success of an appearance cannot necessarily be measured in sales.

My booth at the Ann Arbor Book Festival

I met some great people who shared their knowledge and experiences with me, saw people laugh out loud at my website name, practiced my elevator speech, got a possible lead on some work down the road, and got to meet a crazy man who sometimes appears on my television.

I would call that a raving success!

My husband wants to make me one of these. What do you think?

Kiley Riley seems to have it all. Fresh out of college, she is a successful author with a perfectly pleasing boyfriend. The only thing her life is lacking is an idea for her next novel. She heads back home to Alabama for the holidays, and the birth of her sister Jane’s baby. Things soon become complicated when caring for the baby becomes more appealing than writing. It doesn’t help matters that they are all staying in the overcrowded farm house of the Tucker family, royalty in their small town. As Kiley stays up late struggling for inspiration, she frequently has run-ins with the other resident night owl, Josh Tucker.

Looking scruffy with a reputation for trouble, Josh has something to hide. Kiley tries to keep her distance, but is drawn into his world. She will learn the hard way that actions have consequences, and sometimes everything you thought that you wanted just isn’t enough. Kiley discovers that you find love When You Least Expect It

Thank you to everyone who has supported me. I know it is a crazy dream, this writing thing. Somedays I feel like a rock star. Today I mostly feel nervous, but very proud of this book. It doubled in size during the revision process, and it is the better for it. Hope you enjoy it. As always, sharing my mildy entertaining random thoughts with you.

Sneak Peek

Sorry I haven’t posted very frequently. I have been busy with two very important projects of late. Here is a preview of both.

I am trying my hand at interior decorating…of a 4-year-old boy’s room. The transformation is still in progress.

I can tell time. The clock on the left is defective, I swear!

I am very close to the release of my second book, When You Least Expect It. Here is the cover, and a little taste from my favorite scene.

“So, wait. You want your dad to see you as more grown up, yet you keep doing stuff like trespassing on the water tower?” Kiley asked.

“I am trying to cut down, believe me. And we didn’t come all the way up here just to trespass.”

As Kiley looked at Josh, puzzled, he produced a can of black spray paint from the backpack. He began to shake it, the ball rattling rhythmically inside with his motion.

“Vandalism! What happens if we get caught?” Kiley exclaimed.

“That’s why we come in the dark,” Wade leaned over and drawled into her ear. “You act like it is a surprise that we can climb tall things and paint graffiti. You have seen Jane’s wedding proposal.”

“Oh ya,” Kiley replied.

Excerpt from When You Least Expect It by Jennifer Friess, coming soon.
