AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT!!! Annalisa Nicole

 Annalisa Nicole

I am an “Indie” adult contemporary romance author. I am a wife and a stay at home mom. I have been married to my wonderful husband since 1996. I love being a stay at home mom to our two teenage boys. We have a handful of pets, a dog named Lucy (who is in my books), a guinea pig named Flufy, (my son spells her name that way) and a cat named meow-meow, who adopted us many years ago and has never left. 

I never liked reading as a kid and I only started reading romance novels in the past few years. Soon I couldn't get enough of them. My Kindle and I are inseparable now. A thought occurred to me in December of 2012 that maybe I could write a romance novel. So I went to work with the encouragement of my husband and my sister-in-law. It didn’t take long to figure out that I really enjoyed writing. 

I entered my book in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest in January of 2013. Needless to say my three hundred word pitch didn’t even make it through the first round. My book never even got read. So now what do you do with a 50,000+ word book? With more encouragement by my wonderful family I decided to self- publish it. So here I am today a self- published author. It has been a lot of hard work but I wouldn’t change a single thing.

It has not been an easy road and there has been a lot of self- doubt, but I stuck with it and I wouldn’t change a thing. I’ve been blessed to have been put in contact with some amazing people that have supported and encouraged me every step of the way. 

TAKE A CHANCE - Running Into Love - Book 1

Willow Emery is in the middle of chemotherapy when she literally runs into Asher Wellington on the sidewalk after treatment with a rather unfortunate outcome. She is alone in a new city and doesn’t need anyone in her life. If life has taught her anything it’s that you can’t rely on anyone. 
Asher is a young widower, devastated by the tragic death of his wife Olivia three years earlier. He has given up the idea of ever finding the kind of love that he shared with his late wife. Will one fateful day bring two lost souls together? Will taking a chance lead them to a happily ever after or will the challenges they face keep them apart? 
This is a mature audience book and is intended for adults only. 

Editorial Reviews:
5 star review...
This was a very sweet story. I loved the characters and how relatable they were. The book contains the heavy subject of Breast Cancer but it was conveyed in an appropriate way for a Romance Novel. The story moves along well and my attention was grabbed as soon as I started reading the book. It is a fast read and easy to read multiple times. I am looking forward to reading other books written by Annalisa Nicole. Julie F.

A beautiful love story that was short but sweet. This was such a lovely story that often bought a tear to my eye. Willow and Asher were a beautiful couple and I loved how you could feel how strong they loved each other. There was the story line of Willows cancer but there wasn't loads of drama, this story didn't need it however so the fact that there wasn't, was perfect for this book.
It was just a beautiful love story. Bethany
