During 2009, my novel, Maui, was published by Torquere Press, under a two-year contract. The contract expired a few months ago, and the book went “out of print”, i. e., it could no longer be purchased.
Noble Romance Publishing agreed to re-release Maui, after certain revisions were made to meet Noble’s standards. Fiona Jayde also created a new cover, which I’m posting here this morning. It’s a beauty, isn’t it? The book re-released yesterday.
Here’s the blurb for the book:
When Ishmael Fanning, a Florida surfer and grade school teacher, gets dumped by his partner of seven years, he relocates to the Hawaiian island of Maui. There he quickly finds himself involved with two younger men: Corey, a competition surfer, and Spencer, who works in a skateboard shop.
Eventually, Ishmael must choose between Corey and Spencer, and it’s not an easy decision for Ishmael to make. Spencer’s not the brightest guy, but he has a sensitive side; it appeals to Ishmael. Corey’s a prize-winning surfer — he has two years of college and looks like a fashion model — but his sexual orientation troubles him.
Both Spencer and Corey want Ishmael as a lover. Which guy will Ishmael choose?
Maui has received many favorable reviews, and it has sold well over the past two years. I love the book; it’s one of my favorites, and I’m so happy Noble Romance is keeping the book available to readers around the world. If you want to have a closer look at the book, click on the cover in the sidebar at right, and you’ll be transported to Noble’s website. You can read an excerpt from the book there.
Again, have a nice Monday, everyone.
