Please share in our excitement in introducing contributor G.G. Wynter’s debut novel. Free Falling will be released December 21, 2017. Wynter’s debut novel has already been named a 2016 Georgia Romance Writer Maggie Award finalist, and is a 2017 Kayak Author Award finalist. According to her bio, “G.G. Wynter writes small town, multicultural romance novels about feisty female leads, swoon-worthy men, and the family drama that often keeps them apart. Her writing has been described as one part Jane Austen, one part Shonda Rhimes. When she’s not traveling between the Marvel and DC Universes, you can find her online at www.ggwynter.com“.
“He looks at me, and the old connection between us sparks like electricity. But I look away, because electricity is the last thing I need when I feel like I’m neck deep in rising water.” -Excerpt from Free Falling
