Tribute Books Blog Tour Guest Post: Night Sky’s Jolene Perry

Night Sky Jolene Perry Tribute Books March 1, 2012 247 pages Amazon|BN|Smashwords RBM’s Disclaimer Girl I’ve loved, girl I’m falling for. Now that they’re both in view, the problem is clear. After losing Sarah, the friend he’s loved, to some other guy, Jameson meets Sky. Her Native American roots, fluid movements, and need for brutal honesty become addictive fast. This is good. Jameson needs distraction – his dad leaves for another woman, his mom’s walking around like a zombie, and Sarah’s new boyfriend can’t keep his hands off of her. As he spends time with Sky and learns about her village, her totems, and her friends with drums – she’s way more than distraction. Jameson’s falling for her fast. But Sky’s need for honesty somehow doesn’t extend to her life story – and Jameson just may need more than his new girl to keep him distracted from the disaster of his senior year.

Today, Molly is thriving and it really warms my heart to know someone else found her dream job. Putting together virtual book tours for authors is not easy. We’re forever learning ourselves. We don’t want authors to walk away and say… Read more »
