A Secret to Share

Maybe I’m out of hibernation for good, maybe not (nowadays, I have no clue what’s up next with me) but I just had to come out of my shell to tell you this:

I’ve become a child again. You know that feeling, like when you were little and your parents told you a secret and begged you not to tell anyone, and you were just so heavy with the secret that you just knew you would have no peace until you just shared it with someone else? Well, today I have become that child. I have a burningly good secret and I can’t wait to let it out of the bag. My ever histrionic brain is working overtime, and I’m sitting here wondering how best I can blurt my secret to the world.

You know what? I’ll just come out with it right now.

*Whisper. I have a book coming out. Yikes! So glad I got that off my chest.

Oh, the yellow man with the yellow stick (If you’ve been following my stories, you’ll catch that joke) said he didn’t hear me.

“I have a new book coming out.”

You still didn’t he-?

Okay, here goes! *A deep breath. Drum roll please


Applause, applause from the yellow man ( and maybe you too :))

Thank you. Thank you. *Taking a bow, and grinning from ear to ear.

Theatrics aside, I guess this will be a good time as any to share the cover…Here goes:

Oops, I didn’t mention the title? I guess it’s a given since it’s on the cover but I apologize all the same for my over-exuberance. It’s titled The Officer’s Bride. Yes, the The Officer’s Bride’. Yeah! That one…the same one I shared with you all last year. It’s now a soon-to-be-published book after all.

I hear the yellow man grunt. “Finally!”

Ah! Funny you!

The officer’s bride is set to be published, tentatively November, all things working well.

I would love to know your thoughts.  And if you’re so inclined,  you could share  my secret on your facebook wall, twitter, email your friends, etcetera…Seriously, I won’t mind you sharing  🙂

    Yipee! What about the other novella? Omo Mummy?? Can’t wait to read the novella though.. Good luck Lara.

      Thanks Omolara. Actually, omo mummy isn’t a novella. It’s a full length novel, about 50,000+ words, so that’s going to take a while. Thanks again namesake.

  2. Congrats Lara
    I’ll put this on my sidebar
    God bless

  4. Congratulations Lara! You’re definitely one hardworking woman. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.

I welcome your thoughts.
