We have the back cover copy for out new book Crossing the Line by Caitlyn Armistead (coming out September 21st, 2015. Pre-order links coming soon!)
Here it is…
Sergeant Nathan Thompson is a combat medic who took an early retirement from the military after losing his leg in Afghanistan. Megan Henderson is a dedicated paramedic who has saved countless lives. When they’re forced to work together, tensions flare—Nathan thinks Megan is a condescending know it all, and Megan resents a partner who might not be able to offer 100%.
But as they work together, responding to calls at car wrecks, nursing homes, and for drug addicts, their mutual respect grows. Though Megan is a married woman, she can’t help but feel drawn to Nathan’s confidence and compassion. Maybe it’s her imagination, but he seems to feel the same way about her.
Then Nathan starts noticing the mysterious bruises appearing on Megan’s arms, and her excuses just don’t add up. The next life Nathan has to save may be that of his own partner—if only she’ll let him.
There will be a cover reveal soon. The cover is being custom created by famous EMS artist DanSun. We are so excited and proud to feature his artwork!
After asking around and doing some research, we’ve decided to widen our submission criteria and acquire manuscripts that feature females with disabilities as well. We want to be a go-to source for reading the love stories of people who have physical disabilities and that includes both men and women.
As a friend on Twitter said: “And with regard to writing about PWD, I think not enough realize our stories are just as rich and interesting as anyone’s.”
So, if you’ve got a manuscript you’re working on where there’s an element of a love story and one or both characters has a physical disability, we’re very interested in taking a look!
