The Truth About Letting Go is LIVE!!!!

I loved Leigh T. Moore’s first novel, The Truth About Faking. I knew I’d love this one too. I had the opportunity to read it before publication, and you won’t want to miss it. It’s fabulous. Very moving.
***
A companion to The Truth About Faking (not a sequel; the books can be read out of order), The Truth About Letting Go (link)takes readers back to Shadow Falls, or more specifically Shadow Creek, with Ashley Lockett as she learns about real friendship, love, and letting go.

 

 

The Truth About Letting Go (link)
by Leigh Talbert Moore

Ashley wants to smash everything in her once-perfect life.
Charlotte wants to walk in Ashley’s seemingly charmed shoes.
Colt wants to turn Smalltown USA on its ear–with Ashley at his side.
Jordan wants to follow his heart… but Ashley is the one sacrifice he never expected to make.

Up until now, Ashley Lockett has always followed the rules. She’s always done the right thing, played it safe, and then her ideal life is shattered when her dad dies suddenly.

Fueled by anger and grief, she vows to do everything opposite of how she lived before. She rejects safety, the rules, faith, and then she meets Jordan.

Jordan has big dreams, he’s had a crush on Ashley for years, he’s a great kisser… but he’s also safe.

Enter Colt. He is not safe, and he’s more than willing to help Ashley fulfill her vow.

A book launch and a cover reveal!

I love seeing my friends reach their dreams and helping them celebrate. Laura Diamond and Leigh T. Moore have great news to share today! Yay!

 

Amazon

New town, new love, new terror.

It’s here! My prequel novelette, NEW PRIDE, releases today. I’m SO stoked for it to run wild in the world.

NEW PRIDE was born from my upcoming novel, SHIFTING PRIDE (coming December 7, 2012!). In SHIFTING PRIDE, the main character, Nickie, searches for her missing father, Richard…and NEW PRIDE is all about Richard’s journey to independence and new love.

NEW PRIDE Blurb:

A shape-shifter without a pride, Richard Leone strikes a tenuous friendship with power hungry, Derek, from an unstable, rogue group. On a hunt in the forest, they encounter a gorgeous brunette, Molly, partying with friends around a campfire. Derek tells the rogue pride and they bristle at humans trespassing on their territory. Richard risks life and tail to protect his secret and the humans—especially Molly—while simultaneously trying to win her heart. When Molly is kidnapped, he faces taking on the rogue pride alone, but quickly finds he has to put his trust in Derek, not only to rescue his new love, but to ensure the rogue pride doesn’t wreak havoc on his new town.

How to find Laura Diamond on the web:

*GROUP HUG* Thank you, everyone, for taking the time to celebrate with me and for helping me spread the word. This wouldn’t be happening without you. Yes, you! Without you, I’d have given up a long time ago. 😉

I hope you enjoy NEW PRIDE and SHIFTING PRIDE.

And here’s a cover reveal for Leigh T. Moore’s newest books she’s about ready to let loose on November 11th!

ROUGE:
Trapped in the underground theater world of 1890s New Orleans, Hale Ferrer has only one goal: escape. But not without Teeny, the orphan-girl she rescued from the streets and promised to protect.
Freddie Lovel, Hale’s wealthy Parisian suitor, seems to be the easy solution. If only his touch could arouse her interest like Beau’s, the penniless stagehand who captures her heart.
Denying her fears, Hale is poised to choose love until an evil lurking in their cabaret-home launches a chain of events that could cost her everything.
Mature YA/new adult; light historical/theater romance

Another Random Act: The Truth About Faking. (Brand new release!)

Another Random Act: The Truth About Faking. (Brand new release!)

 

Welcome fellow blogger and friend, Leigh T. Moore. Leigh just released her YA contemporary and on the first day shot up the charts!

 

Blurb:

Jason just wants a date with Harley.

Harley just wants a date with Trent. 

Trent’s still getting over Stephanie.

When Harley and Jason decide to fake date, they uncover a school of deceptions. Trent’s got a secret, but so does Jason. And the more time Harley spends secretly kissing her fake boyfriend, the further she gets from her dreams with Trent. 

Worst of all, Harley’s mom is getting cozy with her hot massage therapy student, and even Harley’s Reverend Dad can’t fake not being bothered by it. But when the masks finally come off, can everyone handle the real truth?

Here’s Leigh to tell us a little bit about her journey!

Let me see… I don’t want to get too wordy and drive everybody crazy. The story behind the story is actually pretty simple. This was the third book I ever wrote. I finished it in 2010, sent it through the critters, did my revisions, and started trying to find an agent.

Almost a year later, I got an offer from one agent, but in the meantime, I’d written a different book (ROUGE, which is coming out in Nov/Dec by Pocket Books). The *other* book got me an offer from a different agent, who was so enthusiastic about that book, I went with her and sort of back-burnered this one.

After we did the deal on ROUGE, agent came back and asked to see this one. She really liked it, so we did a few more revisions on it and shopped it around. Editors were all very complimentary, but they all passed. I proposed self-publishing it, and agent encouraged me to do it!

I was planning to wait until after the other books came out, but then I started talking to Jolene Perry about her gorgeous covers. She offered to do a cover for the book, and when she found out how “ready” it was, she told me to “rip off that band-aid!” Ha ha!

And here we are! I hope readers enjoy this story. It’s one of my early ones, so it’s very special to me, and I’d love to hear from readers. I’m on Goodreads (http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/6452152.Leigh_Talbert_Moore) and Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/LeighTalbertMoore), and of course at my blog.

Purchase Leigh’s book on Amazon ~ Barnes and Noble.

Congrats Leigh! so excited to see your journey take off!
