guest post: Paying It Forward & Net Switch by Denise Baer
This is a guest post by Denise Baer about her book blogging initiative "Paying It Forward" and her own book "Net Switch"
Paying It Forward
My name is Denise Baer and I’m a self-published author. Along with the positives of technology, the self-publishing market has been immersed with people wanting to tell a story. To help me and other self-published / indie authors promote their work and spread the word, I have started ‘Paying It Forward’ on my blog Skipping Stone Memories.
I feature self-published / indie authors and ask them to feature another author on their site or read and review a self-published / indie author on the many outlets. Dorothee was kind enough to feature me on her blog. I have written and self-published two books; one a poetry e-book, Sipping a Mix of Verse and the other a dark, psychological suspense, Net Switch (paperback and electronic). So far, I have received good reviews for Net Switch.
In the dead of winter, Sydney Hayes finds herself in an internet chat room in hopes of expelling her loneliness. Enchanted by a stranger, she soon finds herself caught up in an affair that spills over into her everyday life. Within a short period of time, the stranger captures her mind, her body and eventually her heart, but excitement turns to terror and Sydney must abandon the life she built in Chicago and assume a new identity.
A fragile woman in a new city, Sydney tries to put it all behind her as she makes a fresh start in Seattle, but her troubles follow her and she is running out of time. Feeling as though she has no other choice, Sydney is determined to destroy him before he destroys her-unaware that her journal holds the key.
Will she discover the secret before it's too late?
