A little bit about Hoboken Hipster...

I've been concentrating so much on writing Moongazer I haven't had much of a chance to talk about the long in coming sequel to my first book CT Fashionista which will be out in less than a month! And so I thought I'd take this moment to tell you a little bit about the book!

It's called "A Hoboken Hipster in Sherwood Forest" and it's a chick lit time travel, just like "A Connecticut Fashionista in King Arthur's Court" but deals with the Robin Hood legend instead of the King Arthur one.

This is the cover.

Now for the premise:

Those of you who read CT Fash know that Kat, Lancelot and Guenevere are stuck in a time period they shouldn't be. At the start of Hoboken Hipster, Kat places a futuristic phone call for help to her coworker Chrissie (who makes a brief appearance in chapter one of the first book) begging her to go find the gypsy at King Arthur's Faire (i.e. Nimue, Lady of the Lake in disguise) to see if she can help. Chrissie agrees to do so, alebit reluctantly, and is told that in order to bring Kat back from the future, Nimue needs a special ingredient from the past. Problem is, with all the time travel Nimue's been doing herself, she can't make another trip. So it's up to Chrissie to go back in time to 12th century England, get the ingredient from Richard the Lionhearted, who brought it back from the crusades, and then come back to the 21st century so Nimue can cast her spell.

That's the basic premise. You can read an excerpt here. It starts at chapter two - so Chrissie's already back in time at this point.

The book is standalone - you don't have to have read CT Fashionista to understand what's going on. However, Kat makes numerous appearances in the story through cell phone calls to Chrissie. I love writing her character so much - I had to stick her in as much as possible!

As always, if you're looking to pre-order, you can do it so on Amazon.

Thanks for letting me share!
