In trying to find ways to promote the Stars of Heros series, I’m experimenting with practically everything within reason, including being a host for blog tours. If you’d like to have me be a host for yours, please let me know via the contact form. Just so you know up front, I don’t do horror or other extremes.  If your book has a movie rating anything higher than NC-17 than I’m going to pass.  This is an important piece of my author platform, so I need to protect it.

My first guest author for this endeavor is Sarah Wathen. Sarah has just released her latest novel called Catchpenny: Wicked Lover, which has already received a five star review on Amazon.

Who is Sarah?

Sarah Wathen is an artist and an author. A painter at heart, she says, “Writing a book was my obvious next step, once I realized I’d been trying to tell stories with pictures for years. Painting with words is even more fun than painting with oil.”  In  2012, she founded the independent publishing house, LayerCake Productions, specializing in the fun part of creative writing, like original artwork, video trailers, and musical soundtracks.  She lives in Florida with her husband, son, and at least a dozen imaginary friends from her novels.  Her characters are derived from the people and places that have influenced her own life, but the stories they live will take you places you have never imagined and won’t want to leave.

Have you ever wondered about that girl at the edge of the crowd? The one who has dark, bushy hair that hides her eyes while she’s reading, but tight shirts that don’t even try to hide the size of her breasts?  You’ve heard the rumors, you know the rude nicknames, and you wonder what she really does when she’s not in school. She never comes to parties and she lives in a neighborhood where nice girls never venture. Everyone tries to ignore her…but there is something about her that’s impossible to ignore. Especially for the star quarterback, apparently. Because he just asked her to the Homecoming dance, after dumping the head cheerleader.

Catchpenny tells the story from the eyes of “that girl,” and Wicked Lover is just the beginning of this coming of age serial novel.  The small town minds of Shirley County have  underestimated  Meg  Shannon  for  too  long.  She’s even more fun than she is trouble…but maybe she has finally met her match.
