It’s Monday and usually that means some crazy ramblings from me, but I’m in this place of transition AND working on a project (fiction and the #grandmaproject), so some of my friends have kindly stepped into to do guests posts for me. I’m so very grateful to them all! Today, N.N. Light is visiting to tell you a little about her new release and to share an excerpt from Planting the Seeds of Light.
First, a little about the book:
Torn between two men, Sally must follow her heart and decide if love will lead her to the city or the countryside.
Twenty-Two year old Sally Rayton returns to the family farm she deserted four years ago to bury her grandfather. Her plan: to settle her grandfather’s estate and return to her life in the city with her boyfriend, Trevor Mattson.
Her childhood friend, Jack Smith, has other ideas.
Jack convinces Sally to transform the farm into a brewery and fulfill her grandfather’s dream while keeping the Rayton Farm in the family. Sally works side-by-side with Jack while Trevor is hundreds of miles away in the city. The more time she spends with Jack, the stronger her feelings are for him.
When Trevor shows up to propose to Sally right before Christmas and finds her in Jack’s embrace, she must make the biggest choice of her life: true love.
And here’s an excerpt for you:
Jack looked where she pointed.
“Sally…” he began.
“Are you planning on selling it when the farm’s made a profit?”
He turned her body around, his gaze penetrating hers.
“I don’t know,” she whispered. “I know Grandpa wanted me to keep it in the family.” She furrowed her brow. “I’m not a country girl; my heart belongs to the city.”
“Hey, it’s okay.” He moved a step closer. “Farming is hard work and you have to love it to make it successful.” He put a hand on her shoulder. “Don’t beat yourself up for following your heart.”
“Jack, I’m not sure what my heart wants. Part of me loves being here, carrying on the family name.”
“But…” Jack raised an eyebrow warily.
“But I have a life in the city. I’ve almost finished my degree –”
“You have Trevor,” Jack interrupted her. He shook his head.
“What’s wrong with that? Yes, I have a life and a boyfriend in the city. I’ve told you a thousand times my dream is to open my own sidewalk cafe.” She folded her arms over her chest. “Don’t you want me to be happy, Jack?” Her voice sounded hurt, even to her own ears.
He closed his eyes and rubbed his forehead.
“This isn’t going how I wanted it to.” He glanced up at her. “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to imply anything. It’s just –”
“What?” Sally cocked her head to one side.
The telephone rang inside.
“Shit, I have to go answer it. I’ll be right back.” She ran into the house.
“Hi beautiful.” Trevor.
N. N. Light has been creating stories ever since she was little. Her grandfather remembers when she was two years old, she would stand at the top of the stairs and tell him a story filled with emotion (and in a language foreign to him) with her hands on her hips. Let’s just say she was a born storyteller.
She was born in Minnesota, lived in Southern California only to move to chilly Ontario, Canada to marry her beloved husband MR N. She is blissfully happy and loves all things chocolate, books, music, movies, art, sports and baking. Her mantra is to spread the Light.
Most of the time you can find her on Twitter or getting new ideas on how to spread the Light on Pinterest. She is a proud member of ASMSG, Independent Author Network and Marketing for Romance Writers.
In addition to being an author, she’s also a book promoter/reviewer and social media marketer. She loves books, has ever since she was young. Matching up books and readers is something that gives her great pleasure.
She’d love to connect with you either via email or via these various social media sites:
