A Fractured Land Update

As y’all probably know, my debut novel, A Fractured Land, is coming out 1 April 2018.  But here’s an update on how things are going.



First, the lowdown on what to expect….

“Left with a huge debt by her runaway ex-husband, Lexi Taylor is out of money and out of luck. In search of a new beginning and determined to be on her own, she moves back home to sleepy Graaff Reinet to run the inn at Apricot Farm. Free of the problems of her old life, Lexi finally feels she’s getting back on track—until American Carter O’Brien arrives in town.

South Africa is a long way from his home in Texas, but it’s the fresh start Carter needs—and his last chance. A former musician and the wayward son of an oil industry tycoon, he has been sent to the Karoo Basin to search for shale gas, and is expected to succeed. Harboring some serious mistakes in his past with his work and his ex, Carter can’t afford any distractions, no matter how beautiful.

Carter was prepared for potential problems—fracking protests, angry farmers, violent resistance to his presence—but fighting his attraction to Lexi wasn’t one of them. But as Lexi gets drawn in to Carter’s work and his life, the pair must confront danger from an unknown enemy in the Karoo . . . and from their own hearts.”

And  a couple of early reviews from two readers….

A Fractured Land combines sizzling romance with environmental awareness – the novel is a declaration of love for passion, adventure and the beauty of the South African landscape.” — Karina M. Szczurek, author of The Fifth Mrs Brink


– Pamela Power, author of Things Unseen, Delilah Now Trending and Ms Conception. 

A Fractured Land is published by US traditional press, Literary Wanderlust. It will be available as an ebook, on Amazon, Literary Wanderlust website (the only place it is already available on pre-order!!! South African friends, you will have to wait for a hard copy…..only available in the United States on pre- order right now) and over on Barnes&Noble.
