Hello My Friend and Welcome.
Today we have a special announcement for Sowing the Seeds readers regarding the Free Promotion of my novel, PROMISES. That’s right, the Kindle edition will be free on Amazon all day today and tomorrow. [4//11/12 and 4/12/12] If you are an eReader, I urge you to follow THIS LINK to download your free copy. I’ve included a synopsis and excerpts of several reviews below.
Smooth as a sip of Kentucky Bourbon, PROMISES eases you into the Appalachian hill country. That wonderfully wild place of mountains and hollows, creeks and rivers, with its hardscrabble life and whiteboard churches where roots go deep, family matters, and Granny Wright is never wrong. A place where King Coal still rules, and beneath its veneer of respectability lays a hidden web of treachery. Mary Jane Combs may have gotten her Momma's good looks, but her strong-willed determination came straight from Daddy. Growing up in Kentucky she dreamed of a simple life with a loving husband, a home of her own, and healthy kids.
Instead she's become an international Supermodel, swapping the Appalachian coal country for New York City's Upper West Side and traveling the world in her private jet. Now she'll need all the determination she can muster when her ex-husband sets out to destroy everything she's accomplished. But two questions remain unanswered: Can she do what needs to be done and still remain true to the promises she made at her mother's deathbed? And when the dust settles, will she at last find the loving relationship she always dreamed of as a girl?
Part coming of age, part romance, and 100% fun reading, PROMISES is one of those unique novels that keeps getting better and better. After letting his readers settle into life in Appalachian Kentucky, Mr. Lewis catapults them and his strong female protagonist, off to New York, London, Paris, and beyond. But whatever the situation, she keeps her cool and responds with grace and courage forever destroying the myth of the dumb blond.

PROMISES by E.G. Lewis was certainly not what I was expecting, and in this case that is a good thing! Rather than a fluffy romance, I got a well written novel with substance. It is the epic journey of a woman who rises above the trials of life to become the person she was meant to be all along. It starts when Mary Jane is just 15, on the eve of her mother’s funeral. From there it takes us through her struggles at home and at college, first love, more tragedy, success, fame, fortune, betrayal, revenge … pretty much the whole gamut of human emotion! At first glance, this list almost sounds trite, but Lewis’s writing is so provocative, so descriptive, so in tune with the human psyche, that this book is anything but cliché. He draws us into MJ’s world with such craft and precision that before you know it you just have to keep reading. I highly recommend it.

In PROMISES, young girl endures hardship to become a highly successful super model traveling the world. Yet her fame and fortune are threatened when an unscrupulous entrepreneur tricks her into marriage. What follows is immensely satisfying. Although she endures humiliation and her career is damaged at his hands, she retaliates in a way only a strong, intelligent woman could.
The novel has a strong sense of place: Kentucky, New York, Paris and the Caribbean; lots of interesting information about the stock market and how public corporations function. Hard work and family loyalty help her overcome obstacles and succeed.
Despite the fact that she's neither a dumb blond, nor an easy lay, Claudia’s life is not without romance. This great story concludes with a wonderful feel good ending. I loved the characters and loved the story. It's a rewarding read. I adored Claudia Monet and HIGHLY RECOMMEND this novel to everyone.
