Hello everyone I am excited to announce a new book hopefully coming out by the end of October. Single in Silicon Valley is a story about a young widow who is forced to start over. Juliette is a computer prodigy that takes a job at Google hoping to heal her heart with good old vitamin D and an exciting career. But dating in Silicon Valley is unlike any other place in the country let alone for a 27 year old widow with two kids! Will Jules coding skills get her noticed by the geeks? And even if it does will any rise up to the massive job of taking on kids?
My feelings: I loved writing this story. I was inspired by a few brave ladies I know that have been widowed the past two years. I wanted a story that presented a strong character that forges her way to happy ending. This is for them. Living in the bay area I have learned all about the dating scene and how it differs from anywhere else in the U.S. Many people are high educated, well paid and there are more males to females! It creates an interesting dynamic of girls having their pick and yet having to be wary of being some guy’s only pick! I will be releasing more info and cover art as it becomes available!
Based in the bay area: The story touches Mountain View, Palo Alto, San Francisco and Carmel, CA.
There is a character that has a Man Bun: If you don’t know what that is follow this link to see a parody on cinnamon buns in place of man buns. http://www.mtv.com/news/2227951/cinnaman-bun-tumblr-manbun/
I wrote the book in a month: I thought this would be a short story but turned into a novel! I didn’t know if I had the guts to really take on an emotional tale.
My first time writing both sides: You heard it right! There is a male and female perspective throughout the book! It was tricky to write the lead male character’s view but it became fun and addicting. It added so many details to the book that I hope the readers love!
