Beneath the Surface is released!!

The day has arrived - my book, Beneath the Surface, has been released at Wild Child Publishing. Hallelujah. http://www.wildchildpublishing.com/

Blurb for Beneath the Surface
Jo has the darkest of secrets in her past, which drives her to seek out the most traumatic of hotspots in the world as a war correspondent so she never has the time to confront what she did. A fellow reporter, Craig, accompanies her into war-torn Sergavia to recover rolls of film from a dead colleague and along the way Jo finds love and a reason to go back to the beginning so she can move forward.


Extract from Beneath the Surface
Branko’s eyes, unseeing, gazed up to the heaven I hoped he had gone to. What freakin’ heaven, for God’s sake? Who was I fooling? Out of the black sky, a wave of hopelessness thundered over me. For an instant a cavity opened and closed, but I had seen inside, and that image of empty loneliness scratched at my sanity.
I fell forward onto my knees by his side and touched an unblemished cheek. It was cold. This was the face Ana loved. I felt her sorrow, and tears threatened. I brushed his hair into place and rubbed at the dirt on that cheek. I had seen more death than most people see in a century of life, but this was Branko. He had a name. I had talked to him. I had liked him.
I heaved my pack onto my back, snatched up the rifle, checked the magazine and put the safety on. There was nothing I could do for Branko, but I could help save his family—if I could get to them before they reached the pass.
I turned around and faced the mountains. That was where I was going. Up there into the snow.

The above comment I have deleted was a weird one. A long advert in Spanish about selling meat. Go figure!

I thought I had congratulated you already but it seems I screwed up.
So.
Congratulations, Suzanne!
I really like a girl who can handle a gun!

Suzanne Perazzini said...

Thanks Raine, I was too busy trying to get the home page of my website adjusted to celebrate and now I had better update the rest of the site.
People buying my book are having some difficulty so please persevere if at first you don't succeed.LOL>

Thanks Bernita. A girl can never get enough congratulations.
A man with a gun is not bad either - as long as it's used judiciously, of course.

Yay, Suzanne.

I am so happy for you and I know that this is just the beginning of a wonderful career. You are a great writer and it is just taking the rest of the world a little while to work that out!

I am about to 'out' you on the RWNZ loop - so here's to a few more hits and sales.
