If it wasn’t already evident that I believe in writing whatever story comes to me, it will be now. My next novel is not women’s fiction. It’s not romantic comedy. It’s suspense … supernatural suspense with an evil spirit, whose lust for revenge is not bound by time. Here’s the book description:
After twenty-three years, Tom and Julie Cogan are still in love. But they’ve started keeping secrets from each other. Secrets that will jeopardize more than their marriage. When young and beautiful Annie is thrust into Tom’s life in a bizarre experience, he decides not to tell Julie. Now, his silence has put them all in danger. Unknown to them, they’ve all become pawns in a demented and deadly game staged by an Entity who’s waited nearly two centuries to exact revenge.
So, yeah, storytelling in a genre I haven’t shared with you before—but it’s still character-driven, with the examination of relationships all-important. This story, in essence, has been with me for seventeen years. I’m glad it’s finally written, though how it will be published is not yet determined.
You may remember that my novel High Tea & Flip-Flops received a publishing contract from Amazon’s Kindle Press after winning a Scout campaign. Now, I’d like to do the same with Forever. I’m excited to announce that Forever has been accepted for a Kindle Scout campaign. Yay! That means I need your help.
If you click the link below, you’ll get to read the first twenty pages. Then, if you think Forever deserves publication, please click the blue “nominate me” button. Nominations show Kindle Press that readers are interested. Don’t forget—if Forever is awarded a contract, you’ll receive a free copy of the ebook from Amazon!
(No Kindle? No worries. Amazon has a free Kindle reader app for your computer, smartphone, or tablet.)
My Forever campaign will last through the month of December. Please spread the word to friends and family, so they can click that blue button too. I think the guys will like this one, so don’t forget them. And I’ll be thrilled to see you share and retweet my campaign posts on social media throughout December.
Go forth and nominate! https://kindlescout.amazon.com/p/OSOW3M6MU09A

This time I was able to nominate!! (Maybe because I am using Windows 10) All the best with this one. It only proves what a versatile and talented writer you are. (I´m still stuck in Middle Grade Fiction with the same character!!)
Thank you, Darlene! 🙂 Yes, the Kindle Scout program expanded to international submissions, so it’s also open to international nominations.

Congratulations, Linda! You’re a wonderful role model for writers who enjoy dabbling in different kinds of stories (and I’m a firm believer that craft techniques in one genre translate well into another). So, this may be a new genre for you, but the same Linda-Cassidy-Lewis voice will still shine through, I’m sure! Good luck with the Scout campaign!
Thank you, Christi! 🙂 I can’t disguise my writer’s voice, so I hope that’s a good thing. And I can’t make myself write something my heart’s not into … or I would be writing YA or erotica. 😀

I nominated your book. Reading the excerpt, I must say it’s a little intriguing. It’s the type of story right up my alley. And, one I’ll have to buy.
Oh, if you ever get to writing erotica, put in a real storyline. Most of those stories are of the kind, “he did that to her, she did that to him”. 😉
Thank you for the nomination, David. 🙂 I hope the rest of the book lives up to your expectations. And though I don’t hesitate to write sensual love scenes, I couldn’t keep a straight face trying to write erotica … at least not the kind that’s popular today.
