Hey gang – we are headed into day three of the LEAP YEAR 2016 RAFFLECOPTER‬ ‪AUTHOR‬ GIVEAWAY‬ with a guest post from Author G. R. Stone.

Before we get to it, I want to take a moment to remind you to check out our original blog post regarding the contest and encourage you to enter for one of 19 great prizes!

And now without further ado – Author G. R. Stone!

I am so excited to be introducing my new novella – Marie’s Diary – The Introduction.


The adult romance trilogy follows the story of Marie Boxford, a forty-six-year-old, senior pharmaceutical representative, with her oldest in his final year of college and her youngest entering in the fall.

The story begins with her facing the reality of her fading marriage and how she begins to come to terms with it over the sunset of that chapter in her life.

While she has a close group of friends to confide in, she is reluctant to divulge everything to any one of them, so she takes to putting down her thoughts in an online diary.

She works through her feelings at her half of the failure in her marriage, all the while coming more and more out her shell. She acknowledges her lack of emotional and physical response to sex, in her marriage and with her husband. She realizes, as her husband did, that what she wants and desires will likely need to come from someone else.

The supporting character of the story is Ben Livingston – a single, white collar, professional who is just beginning a new relationship with a woman he works with, after exiting a recent, tumultuous, relationship. While navigating the Internet, he stumbles across the file share where Marie is storing her diary online.

As Marie begins the new chapters of her life, she is unaware that Ben has taken on the role of voyeur, taking vicarious pleasure by reading her entries.

This series is intended for mature audiences eighteen years and older.

I am also excited to announce that on Wednesday February 17, Blogger/Reviewer Catherine Bibby of Rochelle’s Reviews is going to be hosting a teaser excerpt of Marie’s Diary – The Introduction on her site; I am so excited for the opportunity and cannot thank her enough.


I also want to thank (via shout out) a number of heavy re-tweeters for me these past couple of days – I really do appreciate the support.


Thank you, each of you, and anyone I may have forgotten – because of each of you this is a great launch.

On March 31, 2016 Marie’s Diary – The Separation will release and Marie’s story continues as she begins her formal separation from her husband, Brian.

The Separation

Thanks everyone for stopping by today!
