Visiting L.A. Sartor

I’m sharing my inspiration for Perfectly Together on author and screenwriter Leslie Ann Sartor’s Indie Adventure Blogspot. Join me HERE!

 

Perfectly Together ~ Perfectly Series, Book 6

Newly graduated naturopathic doctor Jayden Locke has a dream – start a practice in small-town Emerson and never move again. She’s found the perfect office building to buy. It passes an inspection, design plans are drawn up, and the bank okays the loan. Only one problem.

Dr. Cole Cameron scoops it before she has a chance to submit an offer. What?

It’s a good investment. Cole isn’t interested in settling down. He works three jobs in three different towns and would just as soon keep moving. But something about Jayden’s defiant eyes and sexy smile makes him pause and reconsider.

What are the chances that a heart filled with wanderlust and a soul longing for a home fit Perfectly Together?

Perfectly Together by Linda O’Connor on Wednesday Writers

Catherine Castle

perfectlytogether3_850Today on Wednesday Writers I have guest author Linda O’Connor who will be talking about her latest contemporary romantic comedy, Perfectly Together, book number 6 in the Perfectly series. She also has an excerpt for your reading pleasure. Linda, tell us about one of the challenges of writing this book, aside from solving the problem of the heroine putting down roots and the hero reaching for the sky, as your hook says.

Thanks, Catherine,

I’m very excited to release Book 6 in the Perfectly series, Perfectly Together. I wrote Perfectly Together as the final book in the series. But I also said that after the third book, haha, so we’ll see if it sticks. I really enjoyed writing this book because I had a number of characters from the other books “pop” in. The challenge was to do that without making it contrived. Eight of the twelve main characters…

Perfectly Together Fun Fact #3

The release day for Perfectly Together has been set for February 14!! It will be a Valentine’s treat. 😀

In the meantime, I thought I’d share some Perfectly Together fun facts.

Having a cover designed is one of the best parts of the publishing process. It’s when the vision of my book and characters really come alive. I thought I’d share the evolution of the covers. The design on the left was the first iteration by graphic designer Rae Monet, and the design on the right is the final. I thought the red font of the title was too busy, and I asked if the background behind the couple could be white to match the other books in the series. It’s a little plainer but I like the simplicity. I thought the chalet vector in the lower left captured the essence of the building that Jayden loves. The two hearts with stethoscopes represent the two doctors in the story.

 

 

 

The e-version of the book only shows a front cover, but I also get print copies so I need a back cover as well. The original design of the back cover featured the Home Sweet Home sentiment which fit the story, but was a little too homey. Graphic designer Karen Duvall found 2 other cool graphics – one of a set of skis and the other, a ski hill. The ski hill was my vision of the panoramic view Jayden has when she looks out her window. And it’s blue so it matches the Interlock Publishing logo!

 

 

Decisions made – the covers are at the printer and I should have print copies in a couple of weeks. Very exciting!

Perfectly Together Fun Fact #2

The release day for Perfectly Together has been set for February 14!! It will be a Valentine’s treat. 😀

In the meantime, I thought I’d share some Perfectly Together fun facts.

Perfectly Together, book 6 in the Perfectly Series, is the first book in the series to occur after Perfectly Honest, book 1. Books 2 and 3 occur before and Books 4 and 5 take place around the same time as Perfectly Honest. Perfectly Together happens 2 years after Mikaela and Sam meet in Book 1. And fittingly, Jayden settles in Emerson – full circle. 😀

Perfectly Together Excerpt

The release of Perfectly Together is set for Feb 14 – a Valentine’s Day treat. I had fun writing it because I brought all the characters from the Perfectly Series perfectly together. 😀 Enjoy this excerpt!

 

 

 

 

 

 

The weight of disappointment settled on her shoulders and an ache filled her chest. Her dream tumbled like a collapsing house of cards. She couldn’t bear it, and turned to go.

“Wait, maybe we could work something out.”

She looked back.

His eyes lit up and the green flecks glowed. “I planned on renting it out. We can renovate the interior to suit. Sounds like it would work out perfectly.”

For you, maybe. She longed to own. The thought of renting, of living at the whim of someone else, made her stomach twist in knots. She couldn’t do it. She wanted stability and needed permanency.

She blinked back tears. It had been so close.

“You’re thinking of a clinic? Are you a doctor?” he asked.

“I’m a naturopath – a doctor of naturopathy.”

Cole’s eyes widened and he smirked. “A naturopath? Interesting. What exactly do you do? Hand out herbs? Read a crystal ball?” He grinned. “Voodoo?”

Jayden put her hands on her hips. “Naturopaths follow the same curriculum as medical doctors and then get additional training in natural medicine,” she said stiffly.

He held up his hands. “Sounds very . . . important.”

She narrowed her eyes. Was he mocking her? “I don’t think renting would work. I was really looking to buy.” She couldn’t keep the disappointment from her voice. “Good luck to you, though.” She glanced around one last time and walked to the front door.

A hand on her arm stopped her. “Take my card,” Cole said, offering it to her. “Think about it. If you change your mind, give me a call. I’m hoping to get underway in the next couple of weeks.” He tilted his head, the green flecks twinkling. “You know, you don’t look like a naturopath.”

Pft. She rolled her eyes. Should she even bother taking his card? She glanced at the open expanse out the window, the sunlight streaming in, and the view of the mountain.

Would it be worth it? Her dream property, at what cost?

He raised his eyebrows, and her heart stumbled at the interest in his dark blue eyes, the green specks mocking her with a dare.

She plucked the card out of his hand. Hopefully it had a picture on it. It might be a useful target for dart practice.

They’re a feisty couple. Haha Preorder your copy now ~ click HERE
