Here's Lillie ...

Congratulations on your new blog, Ginger, and thanks for inviting fellow authors to help you launch it. You’ve gathered quite a collection of talent here!

After my first novel, Stroke of Luck, was published, I got sidetracked away from fiction for a while.

I’ve written a couple of nonfiction books, but primarily I’ve focused on editing. I’ve had the pleasure of working with several great authors on some wonderful stories. You can learn about the books I’ve edited on my blog: A Writer’s Words, An Editor’s Eye.

Finally, my next novel, Dream or Destiny, will be released by GASLight Publishing in December. Although the cover isn’t ready yet, I'd like to share a blurb and some early reviews.

BLURB:

Marilee Anderson dreams about a murder and wakes to find the murder has actually occurred. Her knowledge of the crime from her dream and her previous relationship with the victim’s boyfriend make her a prime suspect. David Nichols, the victim’s brother, is also a suspect because he desperately needs money to save his failing business and his gun in the same model as the murder weapon is missing. In spite of doubts and suspicions of each other, Marilee and David team up to find the killer. Each is determined to clear his or her own name, and David wants vengeance for his sister’s death.

Does the eccentric woman everyone calls “the crazy lady” know something, or is she completely delusional? Does the cheating couple have more to hide than their illicit affair? Why has David’s abusive father suddenly appeared after all these years? Why had the victim expressed fear of her ex-husband, the sacker at the grocery store, and her boyfriend (Marilee’s ex)? Can Marilee and David trust each other? Or will they be the next victims?

REVIEWS:

“Lillie Ammann's unique talent brings her characters to life in this tension filled suspense, Dream or Destiny. From the first paragraph she'll have your heart racing as Marilee's nightmare takes over her life and changes it forever.” - Diana Lesire Brandmeyer, author of A Time to Dance

“Lillie Ammann has written more than a book about two people trying to solve a crime. She delves into the effects of grief and guilt, attraction and suspicion, compassion and evil.” - Helen Ginger, Freelance Writer, Editor, and Book Consultant

"Dream or Destiny hooked me from the beginning, and I couldn't stop reading! In fact, I had to force myself to put the book down. Lillie can truly capture a reader's attention, and the characters she introduces her readers to are strong and realistic. This romantic suspense is not only a page-turner, it's a great romance filled with tons of suspense! I'm definitely looking forward to reading more of Lillie Ammann's upcoming romances! - Misti Sandefur, Novelist and editor of Coffee Break for Writers

Lillie,
thank you so much for joining in the fun. Dreams or Destiny looks very interesting and I can feel my pocket book groaning. *lol* I'm sure I'm not the only one. :)
