What's On Page 25?

Hello my little dew drops!



It's that time of year again: International Chick Lit Month. I'm super stoked to be participating in this fabulously fun blog hop, and we have a seriously awesome prize we're giving away. A Kindle Keyboard 3G with free 3G + Wi-Fi and a 6" E Ink Display and a copy of all the books by the authors participating on the tour! Now, onto what's happening on page 25 of The Karmic Connection...




Poor Adam. I spend a great deal of the first part of this novel torturing this guy. First he's yanked from his office in the middle of the night and thrown into a chauffeur driven car bound for where? He doesn't know. He arrives at a wellness center deep in the woods of Vermont where there's no coffee and no way of communicating with the outside world. He's miserable, stuck up there with (according to him) a bunch of New Age whack jobs when all he wants to do is work.

Page 25 is actually the first page of Chapter 2. Adam has just met Lorraine - the beautiful, but flightly weirdo who introduced herself as his "wellness guide". He's sitting on the grass outside the big old farmhouse, feeling very sorry for himself. (Win the grand prize! The eleventh secret word in the 27-word sentence is: chick.) He's wondering what's going on in the office and cursing his bad luck for being imprisoned at the wellness center. To make matters worse, one of the weirdest of the weirdos staying at the center is intruding in his personal space.

So there you have it! Now, onto the subject of our Grand Prize giveaway: if you're a little unsure how to go about entering the drawing, be sure to check this fantastic post written by Julie (our fearless leader) with excellent instructions on how to go about collecting the secret words. You'll find that post here.

Thanks for reading and happy hopping!!

Love,
Libby

    1. Thanks, Cat! What a lovely thing to say. And I totally agree about the cover (hope that doesn't sound obnoxious - I really consider it to be the designer's work. Sue Traynor.) :-)

  11. I really enjoyed Fashioning a Romance. Still need to get to Unmasking Maya first - then on to this one. I need to learn to speed read - so many great books on my TBR list!

  12. Poor Adam is right! Chapter One must have been rough on him. Hopefully, now that he's on page 25 and the start of Chapter Two, Lorraine will step in and set him straight!

    Thanks for participating in the Chick Lit Author Blog Hop, Libby! I've had so much fun organizing the CLA Blog Hop and it's fun hopping along the blogs, too!

    Cheers!

    1. Thanks for organizing it, Julie! It's been lots of fun. And I'm afraid I go on to torture Adam a bit long (in fact, for most of the book, heheh) but in the end, it all works out for him. :-)
