…when it comes to book events, it seems. I have quite a few new and interesting books to blog about over the coming weeks. But this morning, a quick update. FINDING FRASER is arriving a week from today: May 15, 2015.
It will first be out in Kindle format, and within the next few days we should have pre-orders available for the paperback version.
The pre-orders are doing very well — thank you! — and I would love if you could help me get the word out that the book is coming to those who might not have heard yet. It’s a fun romantic comedy that will have particular resonance, I think, for anyone who has ever fallen for a character in a book.
Here’s the blurb off the back:
Sometimes searching for true love can be a little…Outlandish.
I met Jamie Fraser when I was nineteen years old. He was tall, red-headed, and at our first meeting at least, a virgin. I fell in love hard, fast and completely. He knew how to ride a horse, wield a sword and stitch a wound. He was, in fact, the perfect man.
That he was fictional hardly entered into it.
At 29, Emma Sheridan’s life is a disaster and she’s tired of waiting for the perfect boyfriend to step from the pages of her favorite book. There’s only one place to look, and it means selling everything and leaving her world behind. With an unexpected collection of allies along the way, can Emma face down a naked fishmonger, a randy gnome, a perfidious thief, and even her own abdominal muscles on the journey to find her Fraser?
And here’s what people are saying about FINDING FRASER:
“Jamie Fraser would be Deeply Gratified at having inspired such a charmingly funny, poignant story–and so am I.”
—Diana Gabaldon, author of the New York Times Bestselling OUTLANDER series
“I loved this book. It transported me to a Scotland I wished I’d grown up in. Everything about it is a delight, and it’s all authentic—the environment, the characters, the dialogue and the sheer enjoyment of it all.”
— Jack Whyte, best-selling author of, most recently, THE GUARDIANS OF SCOTLAND series
“FINDING FRASER is for everyone who ever fell in love with a fictional character. Dyer blends humor, a love of
Scotland, and romance into a page turner that will keep readers cheering on the main character and turning pages.”
— Eileen Cook, Author of REMEMBER,
and other books for teens and adults
“Finding Fraser is an absolute must-read for any Outlander fan. The story is both hilarious and romantic, as well as guaranteed to have readers turning the pages until the wee hours to discover if the heroine finds her very own Jamie Fraser.”
— Laura Bradbury, author of the best-selling MY GRAPE ESCAPE series
If you know anyone you think might like to read the story, I’d love it if you shared this info by linking back to this blog post. If you know of a group that has an interest, or might want to chat about the story, go for it! Emma’s a blogger, too, so she’s very comfortable on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. She even has her own blog page at FindingFraser.com!
Thanks for helping me get the word out on FINDING FRASER. I’m very happy with this wee story, and anxious to share with everyone!
Will let you know as soon as the pre-order for paperback copies is up!
