I am extremely late on this… (Could be the INFP. :))
Anyways, I published a novel
recently in October and I wanted to tell you all about it.
It’s called North and it’s about 19-year-old Jayne, who robs her employer and goes on the run. Along her journey she steals a guy’s car and he becomes her road buddy (his name is Jack), she plays a lot of poker, hangs out on the beach and, oh yes, is being chased by a cop who has been out to get her for a long time (this is Officer Savage, or just Savage for short, and she has a story all her own).
North is a story about being out on the road and having adventures but also about family, home and running away. Jayne has a lot she’d like to leave behind, but ultimately must decide if running will lead her where she wants to go.
North is available in ebook and paperback at many different retailers. Here’s a link that will link to many of the places where you can get it as an ebook ($4.99 regular price):
If you’re looking for a paperback ($14.99 regular price), here are some places you can find it (Note: If you buy the paperback from Amazon, you can get the ebook for free.):

Okay, so now that I’ve gotten all the most basic information out of the way, I can talk a little bit about the making of North, so if you’re interested in that sort of stuff, read on!
Long Commutes Are Great For Story Ideas
Jayne first appeared to me while I was in my car, which is extremely appropriate for a character who goes on a long road trip, but the truth is that I get a lot of story ideas in the car, whether they’re about road trips or not.
