Viva Las Vegas!

With the boom in ebooks lately, I've decided to jump on the bandwagon.  This week I published a new book, VIVA LAS VEGAS, exclusively on Amazon Kindle!

VIVA LAS VEGAS was a book I originally wrote before I wrote my first High Heels novel. It won several wards, including a Golden Heart award, but ultimately my editor decided she wanted to go in a different direction and bought my High Heels series instead of this book. So, even though it has been near and dear to my heart for years, it has never been published. Until now! VIVA LAS VEGAS is not a mystery, like most of my previous books, but more of a humorous women's fiction story - sort of a cross between Sex and the City and Eat, Pray, Love. Here's a short blurb and a video book trailer:

The Queen of Hearts: Mary Halligan can't get over her ex-fiancee, can't get a date to her little sister's wedding, and can't help being faced with happily ever after everyday at the wedding chapel where she works for an Elvis impersonating reverend.
The Full House: Ella Campbell is a former showgirl turned minivan driving mom who can't quite figure out how it happened that she and her perfect husband are sleeping in separate rooms.
The Ace of Clubs: Kit (just Kit) is a magician's assistant who wishes she could make her attraction for her married boss disappear.
The Straight Flush: David Shepard is a flamboyant showboy with only one thing hotter than his dancing career - his lover’s jealous temper.
Four friends. Four different points of view. One story of love, loss and lust in the most decadent place on earth. The only question is, what are the odds of finding true love in the city of sin?

(By the way... Kindle books are viewable not only on a Kindle device, but also on your iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry, Android, Mac, or PC.)

I've never even considered buying an e-book before but this one definitely has me thinking about it. Any chance it'll come out in print form?

Lucy - Sorry, so far I've only figured out how to do it in ebook form. I may look into print, though...

Gemma - Congratulations! It looks like a lot of fun. Boo hiss to Amazon for making most of the Kindle books unavailable if you are outside of the US.

BTW, print isn't difficult to offer through Amazon's Create Space, once you get the manuscript formatted in PDF.

This is a great book! It's so different than Gemma's other ones but it really stood out for me and I had hoped to see it released some day. Glad you finally did it, Gemma :)

It's really a publisher's loss for not taking it on.
