The Test of Time by Nicole Zoltack

I'm a sucker for time traveling books, so I jumped at the chance to help Nicole Zoltack by introducing her new book to the world.

Blub: Katia jumps at the chance to go to England with her best friend after Rose ditches her deadbeat boyfriend. While walking through the market, she spies a large mansion and recognizes the guy out front as her high school friend Tony. Just as they start to reconnect, Katia passes through times and lands in the arms of Lord Landon, who looks like Tony but certainly doesn't act like him. 

Soon. Katia learns that this 1815 is different from the one in history books. Trapped in a parallel world, Katia struggles to not fall for Landon but his charm proves too much for her. Just when she is about to confess her love for him, Katia travels through time yet again.

The course of love never did run smooth and if Katia can't figure out and master the test of time, she'll never see her friends again, or worse, never be reunited with Landon. 

Add it on Goodreads!

Bio: Nicole Zoltack loves to write in many genres, especially romance, whether fantasy, paranormal, or regency. When she's not writing about knights, superheroes, or zombies, she loves to spend time with her loving husband and three energetic young boys. She enjoys riding horses (pretending they're unicorns, of course!) and going to the PA Renaissance Faire, dressed in garb. She'll also read anything she can get her hands on. Her current favorite TV show is The Walking Dead. To learn more about Nicole and her writing, visit her blog.

IWSG - September Edition

Insecure Writer's Support Group was created by the fabulous Alex J. Cavanaugh. Please stop by his site for more details here. Thank you to the wonderful co-hosts this month: Laura at My Baffling Brain, Mark Koopmans, Shah Wharton, and Sheena-Kay Graham

Oh, where do I start? I think there's entirely too many insecurities running through my head this month, it's impossible to address them all. Believe it or not, I released an illustrated children's chapter book last month (Cody the Destroyer, King of Toads), and I have another release this month with my co-author Jay Noel (Death Knocks) and the whole marketing aspect...well, let's just say I have no clue what I'm doing. Honestly, I want to just write more books, and leave the marketing alone entirely (don't tell Jay that). We are trying the pre-order option for Death Knocks with Amazon, but how do I get that information to my target audience? It's an on-going struggle in my head. I don't want to be one of those authors that continually shove it down everyone's throat, but I want to get the information out to the people that would be truly interested in reading it. 

I suppose that is my biggest insecurity this month. We won't venture into the other realms I'm struggling with such as anticipation of reviews, lack of sales, hoping we didn't miss anything in proofing...Ugh. 

September will be a busy month, and I'll just push the positivity into my path, trying to shove out the anxiety and worry.
