All who were losing hope, please join me in celebration, because I finally FINALLY FINALLY have a new book coming out! PICTURE IMPERFECT: A SASSY SUSPENSE is my longest book to date. At 130,000 words (around 420 printed book pages), it is easily double the length of WHERE SHE BELONGS. Now, some of you might say the extra length is why it took me so long to write PICTURE IMPERFECT, and some of you might be right. But there was also a lot of Life Stuff tossed in there. Meanwhile, I was doing some writing as my pen name. But now I am back and working on more and more stuff as Cindy. I will continue to write as my pen name now and then, but, mainly, my focus will be on my Cindy stuff going forward. And I’m very excited about that.
There’ll be lots of news in the coming months, but today I want to focus on PICTURE IMPERFECT, because I’m super excited to announce Special Pre-Order Pricing with a savings of up to 60% off the Retail Price, which will go into effect shortly after the release date of October 18th. Yep, that’s right around the corner. Less than two weeks remaining until release!
Here’s the cover, which, IMNSHO, rocks.
Yes, it’s big! And it’s beautiful! If you want to catch a look at the paperback layout, please visit this special page on my website and scroll down.
And you can read an excerpt here.
Okay, how about I let you know what it’s about?
Photographer Ursula Scott discovers her sexy apprentice is an ex-cop investigating threats at his uncle’s studio–but is she a suspect or a target?
Just when she thought she had her life on autofocus…
Photographer Ursula Scott is six short months from buying her boss’s studio and helping her family knock down a massive debt. She can put up with his hairball antics for that long, right?
But, oh, he makes life difficult. She can barely restrain herself when he hogs credit for her assignments, and now half-naked weirdos are responding to his ad for her first magazine photo spread. On top of that, someone is sabotaging the studio. Worse, she discovers her sexy apprentice is a former cop practicing his newbie PI skills on the case—and she’s a suspect!
Suddenly, Ursula’s dreams and hard work seem about to go up in smoke. In more ways than one.
Well, not on her watch.
When Gabe McKenzie moves home following the shooting that kyboshed his career, he doesn’t expect to get sucked into finding the culprit wreaking havoc at his uncle’s photography studio. He certainly doesn’t expect to fall for Ursula Scott, a long-legged brunette with a definite motive and a desire to play Nancy Drew. Even as he clears her, the sabotage escalates into a bizarre stalking, placing Ursula…and Gabe’s hopes for their future…in danger.
If only he can convince her to stop snooping around and let him do his job as a PI, before an unknown menace threatens not only her dreams—but her life.
~~Did I mention you can Read an Excerpt?
And following are links to the Special Pre-Order Pricing, with savings up to 60% (depending on where you live). Short form, for the eBook the USD Retail Price of PICTURE IMPERFECT is $4.99. During pre-order, the book is available for $2.99 USD and $2.99 Canadian. I’m especially excited about the Canadian price, because that ol’ exchange rate can do a number on the wallet. If you pre-order PICTURE IMPERFECT from an eRetailer using Canadian dollars (ie. for Amazon that would be the Amazon Canada site and not the Amazon U.S. site), you can get the pre-order pricing of $2.99 Canuck.
I buy my Kindle books from the U.S. Amazon store myself, and there’s no way to make the book available for $2.99 CDN if you buy from Amazon US. Instead, it will have one of those wonky prices reserved for Canadians buying from the US. Sorry about that.
PICTURE IMPERFECT is also available on Kobo, iBooks, and for NOOK. So check it out!
International Amazons, please visit this link and then click the Kindle icon, and you should be taken to the store for your country. Or, visit your Amazon of choice and search for “Picture Imperfect by Cindy Procter-King.” (Spell Procter with an E). (Yes, I’m on a mission; why do you ask?)
