Celebrating My NEW Book Birthday!

Join me in celebrating the June 12 release of my NEW book, Love in Pictures!

I wrote this fiction book in exactly nine months from January to September 2017.

It's amazing how everything worked together for my good as I wrote this book. God sent several blessings my way! He sent new friends like Jessica Mae Cortes, former wedding photographer turned author. She offered to help me make my heroine's career believable. Nikki Santerre, a professional wedding photographer, also played a vital role in checking all of my photography-related scenes in my story to make sure that they were true to real-life.

But back to how this book was written. Can you believe that it started with a sentence? Yes, ONE sentence in response to a writing prompt online. Well, God works in mysterious ways because that one sentence turned into a paragraph and that paragraph turned into a page and that page turned into a scene and God kept helping me keep my creative flow going!

Now, on June 14, my "book baby" has been in the world for two full days! Right now the Kindle version is only available for purchase. The paperback version will be ready to sell in about two weeks from today and to celebrate, I'm going to give away two e-book copies of it for the Kindle of the two people who win the giveaway contest!

Author Bio:
Alexis A. Goring is a writer at heart who loves the arts and the color blue because of its serenity and soulful beauty.

As a freelance writer, she covered President Barack Obama, wrote the Growing Up column for Collegiate Quarterly (CQ), which reached readers around the world, and served as the editor of a county newspaper.

Book Blurb for Love in Pictures:

Wedding photographer Michelle Hadley has a passion for diversity and believes that love comes in all colors. So, she’s working hard to convince editors to feature her clients’ images on the covers of the mainstream bridal and wedding magazines.

Despite having a career that focuses on celebrating forever love, Michelle has never actually been in a romantic relationship, and she’s not looking for love, until she meets the one man she cannot forget.

Since his fiancĂ©e broke his heart, Logan Emerson’s focus has been on his career. He’s won awards for his work as a print journalist and dreams of greater success on television as a broadcast journalist. But his personal struggle presents many challenges that might prevent his dreams from coming true.

Michelle doesn’t date often, and since his heartbreak, Logan has shied away from the dating scene. But something about Michelle awakens Logan’s desire to love again.
