For fans of Nicholas Sparks, King of read em and weep, this emotional tale will appeal to anyone that has ever experienced love, loss, and friendship.

Thirty-year-old Lucy Lang's in freefall. Unfulfilled at work and abandoned by both her alcoholic mother and the sister she helped to raise, she's become cynical and depressed. Then, just as romance strikes, she finds out her sister needs a kidney transplant and only Lucy can help. Bolstered by new found friends, Lucy sets out on a road trip to save her sister's life and in the process, makes discoveries about the kind of person she truly is.

This romantic drama will pull you into the world of its heroine and inspire you to see the true power of human relationships.

It looks really good, Lia, and I'm a confirmed crime fiction reader. Well, mostly. On good days. WHen I want to. :)

Congratulations on your success.

Hello Book Bazaarians!

Can I say that? I think it sounds pretty good. This is my first official post here although I've been mulling around for a while. I just wanted to share with you my new novel, "In Search of Lucy." It has been out for about three months now and has been camping out in couple of Amazons Top 100 Bestsellers lists for Drama.

Below is a short blurb to get you started, but I would love for you to follow the link at the bottom for more info and to read some of the reviews.

Thanks and happy reading.

Hi Lia,

Welcome and good luck with your book. I've seen it mentioned around quite a few places and really should take a better more in-depth look at it. As I said good luck with the sales and well done so far.

Faith Mortimer

Thirty-year-old Lucy Lang is lost. She spent most of her life sacrificing her own needs to care for her sister and deal with their alcoholic mother. Now alone and bitter, Lucy struggles to find her own purpose in life. Unfortunately, Lucy becomes depressed, cynical and self-destructive. At times she'd even contemplated suicide as a way out.

When she is just about to hit rock bottom, Lucy finds out that her sister needs a kidney transplant and she is the only match; trapping her in a lonely existence to save her sister's life. With the help of new found friends, and a struggling romance, Lucy sets out on a journey to reunite with her sister and search for her own identity. Written in the spirit of Nicholas Sparks, King of read em and weep, In Search of Lucy will bring you to tears and have you jumping for joy.

Welcome to KindleBoards, Lia, and congratulations on your book!

(If you've gotten this welcome before, it's just as a matter of housekeeping. We like to put a copy of the "welcome letter" in each book thread. It doesn't mean you've done anything wrong, it just helps us know that you know the rules.)

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Oh, and one more thing: be sure to check out the index threads at the top of the Book Bazaar. . . .there are details there about how you can be listed so that our readers can find you.

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.

Here's a great feature of "In Search of Lucy" on the "No Trees Harmed" site.

http://notreesharmed.com/

Also wanted to let everyone know that I recently wrote a short story and decided to give it away for free. You can pick it up at the following links:

Smashwords: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/661...

Feedbooks: http://www.feedbooks.com/userbook/21254/...

GetFreeebooks: The story has been submitted and is awaiting approval.

A brief synopsis of Special Delivery:
Free flowers every month for a year! Recently widowed Amy was delighted to find that she had won. Flowers have always been a big part of her life. But delivery driver Dave brings more than just bouquets. Can he help Amy find happiness again? Will Amy get even more than she bargained for?

Sorry, Libby. Just to be clear Special Delivery is a short story I wrote. I decided to release it as a free ebook. In reviewing the posting rules here I believe I can do that as a separate post but I wasn't sure. That probably would have been better. I'll stick with my book updates here.

Speaking of which I'm doing a giveaway on goodreads. You can win 1 of 3 copies of "In Search of Lucy."

Hi Everyone:

Just a few updates. I just received a really great 5 star review bringing my total reviews to 14! And, that's a 4 star average. Not bad, right? Also I had a nice feature on Aobibliophile that I want to share with you. I hope you will take a look

Lastly, I never mentioned that I am a regular weekly contributor to All Things Books blog. You can find reviews, poems and shorts stories by me every Thursday. Here is a sample of one of my posts: http://speedyreader-allthingsbooks.blogspot.com/2011/06/faithfully-by-lia-fairchild.html

Have a great day!

Just a quick update: The Reader to Reader series is getting great response. Half the topics have been taken, but there is still time to sign up. Head over to my website: http://www.liafairchild.com for more info.

Also, I'm holding a "Name the main Character" contest, where you get to pick the name of the doctor (male) in my next book.

Click on the "BLOG" section for those two opportunities.

Take care and happy reading!

Hey, Lia, I've just downloaded Search for Lucy and noticed you had another book under your name but I don't see it in your signature. Can I ask why?

Look forward to reading your book. ;)
