TODAY’S BREW: Folger’s! FOLGER’S HAS GONE GOURMET AND IT IS SO GOOD. It ain’t just your grandmother’s coffee now.
It’s strange having a new blog, getting to know all new readers when I feel like HERE I AM, REMEMBER ME? Don’t worry, you’ll all get to know me soon enough. I’m pretty much LIKE THIS all the time. I’ll hug you and frighten you in one fell swoop. To get you gradually and weirdly acquainted with me, I’ll give you a Julie Factoid every blog post.
I met Donald Trump backstage at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show many, many years ago. Aren’t I the lucky one.
All right, enough of that. SO GUESS WHAT. My indie career has officially begun! I’m really excited. REALLY. EXCITED. *jumps out a window, rolls down the street laughing*
The book that changed my life is ready for you to own right this second. Or borrow, or page-read, or whatever it is you do. I hope you’ll fall in love with RUNNING HOME and stick around to learn more and more about these characters and how the book came to life. This is the book that made me quit my ten year retail career and all my family’s benefits to throw myself into. But that isn’t what this post is about. This post is about BUY MY BOOK.
PFFFT, I SUPPOSE YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT IT’S ABOUT….
Death hovers around Ellie Morgan like the friend she never wanted. The snow-swept town of Ossipee, New Hampshire, is the perfect place for Ellie to detach herself from a world where she doesn’t belong. She certainly doesn’t belong at a black tie party at a mansion in the woods, but that’s where she is, and where he is: Nicholas French. The man who mystifies her with a feeling of home she’s been missing, and impossible knowledge of her troubled soul.
Nicholas is one of the Shinigami, a heroic order of vampires that “save” their fated victims from other tragic ends. And while he followed an abomination of his kind to New Hampshire, he finds that fate drove him there for another reason. Nicholas knows why Ellie is human repellent…and why physical agony grips them when apart.
But as Ellie’s quest for belonging finally nears an end, she’s forced to choose between two unfeasible sacrifices: love and the destiny she’s longed for, or the sole companion who tethers her to the only world she knows.
Frances Button of Opening Line Literary ‘Zine says, “I can’t remember a time I’ve enjoyed a vampire novel so much. The blend of self-aware characters and unique, fresh mythology made for an engaging, addictive read. I believe I have found my new favorite urban vampire story.”
Yeaaaaaah, anyway, lots of people say stuff like that about this book *shrugs* but you know, it was no big deal.
It’s such a big deal.
Aaaaanyway, maybe you want to look at some of my storyboard pictures on Ye Olde Pintereste perhaps. Just for funsies. Here you go, darling. https://www.pinterest.com/hutchingsjulie/running-home/
Okay guys, call me, I’ll be around or just, you know, buy my book or tell a friend or something like that but definitely I’ll be around all day. THANK YOU FOR CARING ABOUT ME AND MY BOOK!
