Happy girls are the prettiest girls


Book news!

*mic tap*

Uh, hey there, Happy Girl followers--if there are any left!
I have news.
Good news.
Good news as in book news, because y'all know that's my life now.
Look at that beautiful cover. It's pretty dreamy, right? Kari Ayasha of Cover to Cover designs put that beauty together with photos shot by Josh Baker of AzulOx Visuals. It's a little light and almost "chick lit" style for the kind of story it is, but I like it. I didn't want to put a black and white man chest with bold lettering on my cover. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE those covers on other books, but for this one, I needed something different.
And more news!
A Taste of Bliss has a release date! April 7, 2015 my little novel that could will go out into the world of ebooks and try to make a name for herself. I'm keeping my expectations realistic and low: No one knows about me. I don't have a back stock of books that I can use as a stepping stone or a large fan base from previous releases. Nope, I am doing this all indie style. I'm trying to build a fan base on my Facebook page, Instagram and Twitter. Maybe through those interactions I can drum up some likes and sales. Who knows.
You know what would make this book a success for me?
Just to have my book published.
It doesn't matter if I make back the money I put into producing it (um, even though it's self-published, it was definitely NOT free. I paid a professional editor, cover designer, formatter, hired a PR company, bought ISBN numbers, bought domains and built a website, etc.), I am not looking to make money off this. Oh, of course, it would be amazing to get some sales, but if I don't and my expectations are high, I'll be disappointed.
I do not want to be disappointed.

Want to know how you can help me out? Spread the word.
Yup, that's it. Post my pre-order and social links anywhere you want to. Tell your friends.
Read the blurb; if you like it, tell someone else.
If you really feel like supporting me, buy a copy from one of the many places I will have it for sale.
If you like what you have read, review it wherever you bought the book. Those reviews mean so much. Mostly, they tell other readers what you thought, which can help them decide if they want to purchase the book for themselves.

A Taste of Bliss
by Adrian R. Hale

All Bliss Kaufman wanted was a sandwich and a nap after a grueling day beautifying this week’s bridal party. So when a bartender with a panty-melting grin offers her dinner and a ride on his motorcycle, Bliss swerves from her plans for one unexpected night with Talan McGregor. Just one. It was never supposed to go further. But once isn’t enough for Talan who returns demanding more--and his timing couldn’t be worse.

A life-changing diagnosis forces Bliss to abandon her carefully crafted plans. Even though she can make anyone beautiful with enough makeup and hair product, she can’t fix everything with her 50-pound bag of beauty tricks. Bliss is starting to think she might need Talan after all, but letting him in means cracking open her heart and embracing a life without a safety net.

After all, love is life’s greatest complication, and might just be worth the risk.
