It's a banner week for Rebel Ink Press with a host of new releases and several talented debut authors. One of those debut authors is our guest, Nancy LaPonzina. Her novel Nardi Point released this week from Rebel Ink Press and I'm delighted to welcome her to the blog to share some thoughts, an excerpt from her novel, the delightful cover, and more!
Stylish brunette Laurinda Elliot is the type of accomplished business woman glossy magazines feature on their covers. Effectively managing a software product development team in Raleigh, North Carolina, her drive and savvy delivers all the perks: an upscale townhouse, a Porsche Boxer convertible and designer clothing. Yet she yearns emotionally for a different success—one that brings her surprising first time experience with vulnerability. Her uber software code developer partner, Dan Riser, can't buy into the new direction she's leading them, but goes along to keep the peace, and more importantly, beautiful Laurinda.
Or the present make way for the past—and love...
When prehistoric, Native American pottery artifacts are discovered, the ancient past collides with the present leaving Laurinda and Dan's relationship hanging in the balance. Laurinda must trump construction economics and greed to preserve her commitment to her dream, uphold her friendship with alternative healing practitioner, Leyla-Jo Piper, and answer to a new romance, all the while attempting to conserve North Carolina history.
Will digging up the past bury her future? Nardi Point explores the thread of life that blends past, current, and future to recognize the importance of knowing who we are in the story of life
