The bad news is, that “The Healer” didn’t make it to become Book of the Month. However, the winner was the very deserving Georgia Rose, a great writer and friend of mine, so I am well pleased with the result.
The other good news is that Readfreely told me that my “…book got further than 95% of the submissions we received. Next month, let’s hope it goes all the way.”
When advertising executive Erica Whittaker is diagnosed with terminal cancer, western medicine fails her. The only hope left for her to survive is controversial healer Arpan. She locates the man whose touch could heal her but finds he has retired from the limelight and refuses to treat her. Erica, consumed by stage four pancreatic cancer, is desperate and desperate people are no longer logical nor are they willing to take no for an answer. Arpan has retired for good reasons, casting more than the shadow of a doubt over his abilities. So begins a journey that will challenge them both as the past threatens to catch up with him as much as with her. Can he really heal her? Can she trust him with her life? And will they both achieve what they set out to do before running out of time?
“Cayman Brac” is the sequel in the making and finds Arpan (from “The Healer”) on Grand Cayman, where he has opened his training centre. Erica catches up with him in her search for the guilty party from book one. The story also brings in Ben Andrews, a character from my other thriller“The Gamblers”, so you have really two sequels rolled into one.
I hope to publish this book by the end of the year. For those of you who haven’t read “The Healer” yet, I have copies of the audio version to give away. Please leave a comment if you are interested or follow this link.
