In the spirit of sharing and caring, I just wanted to let everyone know that my next book, Christian and Layla, will be available to buy at the end of next month – 25th August 2016!
Christian and Layla follows the story of Christian Turner and Layla Thomas as they fall in love as fourteen-year-olds, and plan to spend their lives together. However, after years of a perfect relationship, Layla disappears from Christian’s life without a goodbye. Devastated, Christian refuses to accept that she left and struggles to move on, wanting to understand why, and hoping she will come home.
What makes this novel a special one of mine is that this narrative, unlike any of my others, is told from two perspectives, and in two parts. Christian’s part is the first, written as a short story, and then it flows into Layla’s part, written as a chaptered novel. Back in 2010 when I finished writing Layla’s story (Prior Engagement, as it was known then), I felt like I had missed a lot of Christian and Layla as a couple by skipping over their happy years as a couple before she left. Therefore, in 2013, I started writing the story of how they met and became “Christian and Layla” from Christian’s perspective (Post Encounter). I felt that Christian’s story strengthened Layla’s, and also helped to explain why Christian was so adamant about believing that Layla would return, and why she would even consider leaving, given their perfect relationship.
Christian and Layla will be available to buy on Amazon, pegasuspublishers.com, and to order from all good online bookstores. Stay tuned for more updates as to when you can pre-order your copy!
