All Aboard the Island Adventure Romance Blog Train

Hey guys! Fellow author and friend J.L. Campbell is here on my blog today, celebrating romance and suspense straight from the islands.  Campbell is a fantastic writer that I've read and featured previously on my blog here and here.  Well, now she's back and she's brought some exciting news.  Please welcome J.L.!

Hello.  Welcome to the second stop for the Island Adventure Romance Blog Train. This series is about standalone books that feature fast-paced stories set in the Caribbean.

Chasing Anya is about an independent woman, who has something of a history. She is plagued by a troublesome ex, who has no intention of letting the past stay where it belongs. Among the challenges Anya faces, is forgiving herself for something she believes is unforgivable.

What makes Anya's story special is that she presents a strong front to the world, while battling her demons and hiding her insecurities. Chasing Anya is more than a romance novel, it explores choices and living with the consequences of the decisions we make. The book also explores themes of friendship, healing and redemption. And no, it's not preachy. There's also excitement and intrigue as a case of insurance fraud unfolds around Anya.

In this book, we also meet her sister, Celeste, who I'll just say is a handful. She doesn't come across as a likeable character, but matures in her own story, Taming Celeste, which follows Anya's romance.

If you want a no-risk taste of the start of this series, Anya’s Wish is my gift to you. This free download is accessible here. I hope you enjoy the introduction to a set of characters whose lives intertwine in different stories.

Congratulations, Joy. Cool you took an unlikeable character and expanded her enough to write a book about her.

Chasing Anya sounds fantastic! I especially like how, despite this clearly being a series, each book can still easily stand alone...

J.L. Campbell said...

Thanks so much for dropping in and sharing your thoughts and good wishes, guys.

I believe I should go to bed now and I've managed to type these comments and lose them twice today. Thanks again!

Mina, many thanks for letting me take over the shop today. :)

Shannon Lawrence said...

Good luck with your release and congratulations!

Michelle Wallace said...

Themes of friendship, healing and redemption are universal - we can all relate.

J.L. Campbell said...

Thanks so much, Shannon.

True, Michelle, and that helps to make stories have a wide appeal. We can all relate to certain things that happen in our lives and that of others.

Mina, many, many thanks for hosting me. Hugs.
