Release day: The January Wish

1 January 2014

Today is the official release of the The January Wish by Juliet Madison (ebook, Escape Publishing). Here’s the blurb:

The January WishFrom Escape’s queen of ro-magic comedy comes a sweet, emotional contemporary romance about the pleasures of making a wish and seeing it come true.

When Dr Sylvia Greene makes an impromptu wish at the Tarrin’s Bay Wishing Festival, it’s the most out of character action she can think of. Hers is not a life of wishes. Hers is a controlled life of order, plans and preparation…of science and research and diagnosis and treatment. But her past has been weighing on her mind, and decisions made long ago have far-reaching consequences.

A week later, the daughter she secretly gave up for adoption at sixteen arrives in Sylvia’s small coastal town with secrets that can’t be shared. Between feelings of guilt, gossip, and a growing attraction to an emotionally unavailable colleague, Sylvia’s well-ordered life is soon thrown into chaos. She is no longer alone, and for the first time she feels as if her world is open to possibilities.

They say be careful what you wish for, but, for Sylvia, the unexpected consequences may be just what the doctor ordered.

Juliet dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

I was inspired to write this story when I had a sea change. The story’s setting is based on where I now live on the NSW South Coast, and is the first in a small town/coastal romance series, though each book will be a stand-alone. The second book, February or Forever, will be released next month on 1 February. The January Wish also draws on my past experience in the natural health industry, and I wanted to create an interesting conflict between the hero and heroine with their different approaches to health treatments. This book was a finalist in the Choc Lit Search for an Australian Star contest, and is suited to readers who enjoy books by Susan Wiggs and Sherryl Woods, or who enjoy Australian small town and coastal settings. I hope you enjoy it, and happy new year!

You can find out more about this book on Juliet’s website and buy it via Escape Publishing.

To celebrate the release of The January Wish, Juliet is giving away an Amazon gift card and coastal photographic print of the setting on her blog throughout January. She is also hosting an online Facebook event called The Wishing Festival (like the one that takes place in the novel) where you can win lots of prizes over the weekend of 4 and 5 January. Join the event here.
