Book Cover: Memory’s Edge

Coming Summer 2016

Gretchen brought her car to a screeching halt in the middle of the highway, terrified she had just killed someone. The body lying on the road appeared so suddenly, she barely had time to hit the brakes. Luckily, she stopped short of him. Unluckily, someone else hadn’t. Her call for help may have saved his life, but the damage done may be impossible to repair.

Waking with no memory of who he is or how he ended up a broken mess in the hospital, he has no choice but to rely on his rescuer for help. “John Doe” is his only identity until fragmented memories begin cropping back up. They are only fleeting images of a woman, but John hides even that from Gretchen, afraid it will lead him back home and away from the woman he is quickly falling in love with.

Here Come the Sharks!!

THE ONLY SHARK IN THE SEA IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER!!!

NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER!

THE ONLY SHARK IN THE SEA by DelSheree Gladden
– SYNOPSIS –
Vance Sullivan has always been the rock everyone turns to for help…
His work with patients recovering from traumatic events makes him the perfect person to help his friend, Guy Saint Laurent, with one of his Date Shark appointments. When Vance meets hesitant, frightened Natalie Price, he suspects she’s hiding the truth behind her fears, and he’s drawn in by a need to help her.
Haunted by a terrible event from her past, Natalie can’t even endure being touched without suffering a crippling panic attack… 
She doesn’t know why, but Natalie feels Vance might be the only one who can help her put the pieces of her life back together. Despite the tension their arrangement causes with his girlfriend, their bi-weekly sessions seem to be helping…as long as he keeps his promise not to push her to reveal more than she’s ready to share.
Suddenly the tables have turned…
When Vance suffers his own unspeakable tragedy, asking for help is the last thing he wants to do. Drowning in grief and guilt, crushed by betrayal and lies, Vance needs a lifeline.
Natalie has no idea why anyone thinks she can help him, given her own deep-rooted fears—but she knows she has to try.
A twisted notion of justice makes the danger all too real, 
and Vance and Natalie realize it might take one broken soul to mend another…

– DELSHEREE GLADDEN –
DelSheree Gladden was one of those shy, quiet kids who spent more time reading than talking. Literally. She didn’t speak a single word for the first three months of preschool, but she had already taught herself to read. Her fascination with reading led to many hours spent in the library and bookstores, and eventually to writing.
She wrote her first novel when she was sixteen years old, but spent ten years rewriting and perfecting it before having it published.
Native to New Mexico, DelSheree and her husband spent several years in Colorado for college and work before moving back home to be near family again. Their two children love having their seventeen cousins close by. When not writing, you can find DelSheree reading, painting, sewing and trying not to get bitten by small children in her work as a dental hygienist.
DelSheree has several bestselling young adult urban fantasy series, and her first contemporary romance, Date Shark, will be released with Limitless Publishing in 2014.

Wordless Wednesday: Memory’s Edge

I’ve been making plans recently about what to do with Memory’s Edge, whether to publish part one in the near future or hold back until part two is ready as well, whether to stop part one on a cliffhanger to keep the word count lower or to let it be longer and stick with a more resolute ending point.

I’m still working it out, but my talented sister, photographer and owner of Mystereah Photography is getting me moving by helping me get some unique character photos for the cover art and promo materials and I wanted to give you a sneak peek.

What do you think?

Release part one and two close together?

Cliffhanger or resolution at the end of part one?

I’d love to hear thoughts from my readers!

#WordlessWednesday: The Only Shark In The Sea

Yes, I’m talking about the Date Shark Series again because that has been my entire writing world for the last 6 weeks or so. Book 3 – The Only Shark In The Sea – was sent to my publisher for editing last week and book 4 – Shark In Troubled Waters – was sent out to beta readers Monday, so both should be out before the end of the year. Exciting!

For now, how about some teasers from The Only Shark In The Sea, featuring Vance Sullivan and Natalie Price.

Feel free to share, pin, or tweet!
