With each new twist that’s woven into the plot comes a new revelation about the heroine’s past, an element of suspense that makes it difficult to put the book down. Similar to a Nicholas Sparks novel, but uniquely different, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love is a thought-provoking, emotional read that, among other things, might even have you yelling at the main characters at times. Unlike your typical fairytale romance, the characters in Sand Dollar have real-life issues that must be dealt with. As in real life, things rarely go according to plan, and all too often it’s the ones we love the most who end up hurting us the most. A mixture of joy and heartache, this realistic portrayal of life is what sets Sand Dollar apart.
When the story opens, Noah, who is old and sick in a hospital bed, tells of his undying love for his soul mate, his one true love, Robin, who also happens to be the one who got away. The story is told from Noah’s point of view with two timelines: when he’s old and when he’s young. Eventually, these two timelines intersect with a surprising plot twist, and the story moves forward from there with the most beautiful of endings – an ending that you’ve just got to read for yourself.

The paintings on the cover of Sand Dollar and this website are not actually paintings…
They’re pastel drawings!
And they were drawn by a wonderful artist in Oregon, named Deborah DeWit. Thanks Deb, for doing such a great job!

Well, here it is — my first blog post ever!
Please read my debut novel Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love. It’s an epic, heart-wrenching love story about “the one who got away.” Sand Dollar is best described as a romantic fantasy, kind of like The Notebook with a Sixth Sense twist. This thought-provoking and emotional read might even have you yelling at the main characters at times as they struggle to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. And not only is it filled with plenty of twists and turns, but the ending will knock your socks off!
The eBook can be purchased online for $2.99. And if you prefer the 6 x 9 paperback version with the beautiful, romantic cover, you can purchase that for just $9.99.
Feel free to contact me here to let me know what you think of Sand Dollar. Being a first-time author, nobody knows my name; so anything you could do to help spread the word would be greatly appreciated. If you enjoy reading my book, please tell all your friends. And if you really feel inspired, why not write an online review at Amazon? Every little bit helps when you’re just starting out. Thanks!
So, in conclusion: Buy my book, read my book, tell the world, and thanks!
