Annie Laura Smith Update
Annie Laura Smith’s Twilight of Honor, her dive into the light romance genre, is now available on Amazon from The Ardent Writer Press!
After discussion of various proof ideas, Annie selected a full front cover of Linda Ruhl’s painting of Shoreline Gallery (see it on her author’s page). Shoreline is owned by the novel’s protagonist, Wynne Reardon. It was to be the haven in Destin, Florida for her and her pilot husband, Michael, once he retired and is central to the crisis that Wynne must overcome.
Michael is shot down in the closing days of the Vietnam War and is declared dead, but his body is not recovered. Should she stoke the dim flame of memory of her courageous husband who is soon recommended for the Congressional Medal of Honor or should she move on to a relationship with another good man, Jason Garrison, a potter she hires for her gallery? Making her decision difficult is Jason’s past as a protestor. Though he is a veteran of that same war…he is too familiar with the cracks in its foundation, ones he saw personally during his tour there, one that soured him as well as the American psyche.
Ardent Writer Press has asked Amazon to place Twilight under its wonderful Look Inside the Book program. It should be available in that form by next week, so give the story a read (at least those parts of the novel available for introduction on Amazon)! Here is the LINK.
We have also made the prologue and first chapter available on Annie’s author page which you can view while waiting for the Look Inside the Book take on Twilight of Honor.
In the coming weeks we will also wait for various reviews of Twilight. When received, we will update the book and incorporate snippets from each.
