A Sigh of Love by Bess McBride Goes to Print!

It's true! It's true! My Alaskan romance, A Sigh of Love will be available in print this Friday, August 8, 2008, at most online bookstores (although I saw it ready to go at today). :-)

Aaaannnnddd...I got my author copies today! All twenty one of start! I'm absolutely thrilled to hold the book in my hands at long last! Not quite sure what I'm going to do with them. I'll use some for contest prizes, maybe schedule a book signing or two! Who knows!

Here's the blurb:
Abbie is on her way to Anchorage, Alaska to meet George whom she has been corresponding by telephone for the past three months. George has repeatedly asked her to come up to Alaska for a visit so they can meet in person. Call her crazy, but Abbie makes airline reservations to fly from her home in Seattle up to Anchorage to meet George. She’s lonely. Why shouldn’t she make a mad romantic dash up to the last frontier to meet a man? She’ll just ignore the practicality and logistics of a long-distance relationship. When she calls George to let him know her arrival time, he chooses that awful moment to let Abbie know that he thinks they don’t have much in common after all and she should cancel her plane reservations. Abbie is stunned, humiliated and ashamed of the lonely desperation that drove her to make nonrefundable airline reservations to Alaska.

What to do? Abbie decides to go to Alaska anyway. A grouchy and depressed Abbie meets Tom on the plane, a tall, handsome anthropology professor who happens to be half Native Alaskan and half Caucasian. As the plane flies north, Tom and Abbie discover a mutual attraction. By flight’s end, Abbie is completely enamored of the stranger, and she doubts her judgment, perhaps even her sanity, as she finds herself falling again for yet another Alaskan male...until George shows up, that is.

I've been fortunate to have some very nice reviews of A Sigh of Love. Please stop by my website at and read a few.
