Elevator Pitch 5: Show us Yours!

Elevator Pitches, have you got one?

Carol Kauffman, author of Bentley Square

"Strangers meet on the train. She, a beautiful, wealthy businesswoman. He, a down on his luck office manager. They have nothing in common. And yet, they are drawn to each other with an undeniable hypnotic magnetism."


 



This is the story of Rebecca Robbins, daughter of one of the wealthiest men in the country, and Mark Ramsay, a man shrouded in dark mystery and hiding in the shadows from death squads and international intrigue.










Carrie Aulenbacher, author of The Early Bird Café.

"A unique romance between two long-term friends, Jim and Eve."

For years, Jim and Eve have shared breakfast every morning at the Early Bird Café. Their constant friendship, however, is thrown into chaos when Jim begins writing his second novel. Their friendship strained, the novel takes all of Jim’s focus, and a grievous string of events coupled with Jim’s manipulative new lover put their friendship to the ultimate test.

As Jim struggles with the darkness in his own life, Eve attempts to negotiate her feelings for Jim and their strictly platonic relationship. In the midst of the turmoil, both find themselves wondering if their feelings for each other actually run deeper than the friendship they thought they once had.

Debby Nelms, author of Dancing Skeletons.

"I you cannot hide the family skeletons, you might as well make them dance."



These stories are just a slice of life, showing one person's unique perspective on how to find humor in the everydayness of everyday. What seems ordinary and mundane to others become an opportunity to find humor in any situation. No one or no thing is safe or sacred; from riding lawn mowers to grumpy husbands to crazy cats to imaginative teenagers - the more dysfunctional the better story!





NEXT!

Gerry Pirani, author of The Search For Intelligent Life on Earth: A Story of Love

"The lives of three young men collide in their search for love, sex, and meaning."

While visiting his estranged father in Europe, nineteen-year-old Mark meets Jacques, a young Parisian socialite who performs as a drag queen. Conflicted by the undeniable attraction, Mark returns to his home country of Kenya—only to learn from Jacques that their mutual friend, John, has attempted suicide. Accompanying Jacques to England, Mark soon finds himself falling in love.


As John struggles with his manic-depression, Mark and Jacques begin an explosive affair that threatens to engulf them both.

When Mark’s violent temper erupts, he flees to his Native American grandmother in the Plains, where he works with a shaman and discovers things about himself he never knew were possible.
Eventually Mark and Jacques meet up again in London. While their passion is instantly rekindled, Jacques now hesitates to trust his heart. Can people really change?

And that's it for the Elevator Pitches for October. Continuation depends on level of interest. Hope you all enjoyed this series and found a book to love in the process.
