Who’s ready for a Schmexy Contest?! We most certainly are!!! You all know that I recently read When You Are Mine by Kennedy Ryan and LOVED it…an excelled debut novel. Welllllllllll Kennedy came to us with this GREAT idea and, well, I’ll let her explain…
Message from Kennedy Ryan
Hi, Schmexies! It’s Kennedy Ryan here. Most of you don’t know me, but my debut novel WHEN YOU ARE MINE released Tuesday, June 17th. I looked around at all the fan-made trailers for a lot of wonderful books, and thought those are really cool! Only I’m a #NKOTB (that’s New Kid On the Block, for anyone not up on their 80s boy band hash tags!) I don’t really have many “fans” yet. And like many debut-ers, I’m on a limited budget.
*Please make sure all trailers are spoiler-free!*
Forever is a heartbeat away . . .
Kerris Moreton knows how to make things work. Bounced from foster home to foster home as a kid, she adapted; when opportunity arose, she thrived. Now, about to open her own business and accept a marriage proposal, Kerris is ready to build the life she’s always wanted. The only thing missing? A passionate connection with her would-be fiancé, Cam. Kerris wants to believe that sparks are overrated-until Walsh Bennett lights her up like the Fourth of July.
. . . but what about love?
As one of the East Coast’s most eligible bachelors, Walsh enjoys financial independence, fulfilling work with his family’s nonprofit, and plenty of female attention. But lately he’s been distracted by the one woman he can’t have. Lovely to look at and even sweeter to know, Kerris is the soul mate Walsh never thought he would find. The problem is, his best friend found her first . . .
So Kennedy and I decided to give you some extra motivation! Below you will find the synopsis, an excerpt from the book along and some of our favorite teasers!!! Enjoy and get to making that trailer!!
About the Author
Kennedy Ryan grew up in North Carolina, but loves living in Atlanta with her husband (tall – check, dark – check – handsome – check), and her handful of a son. Though she knew, like writers often do, that she was supposed to tell stories, the road to fulfillment has been paved with “some of everything” jobs that kept her family eating and living indoors. With her degree in Journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Go Tar Heels!), she has focused on writing for non-profit organizations and even doing some non-fiction ghost writing. Only in the last few years did she start telling stories again.
In addition to being a devoted wife and mom, she’s also a passionate advocate for families living with Autism. Her son was diagnosed at the age of two, and she has made it her mission to help as many families as possible find the resources and services they need. 25% of her royalties will go toward her national charitable partnerTalk About Curing Autism and Myles-A-Part, her foundation serving Georgia families.
