Into the Vines

cover Into the Vines by Kim Troike is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble via print or e-book.

It is my pleasure to announce the release of this title by an Indie Author in the contemporary fiction genre. Written for teens, YA, and adults with touches of mystery, adventure and romance; the book is a page turner with vast amounts of realism tied to youthful optimism. Paris is a highlight, the elegance stated accurately and with heartfelt emotion.

The middle segment of this novel was previously entered into two international contests and received honorable mentions!

The author will be promoting this novel with posts on her blogs gardenlilie.com and theivorytide.com. Updates will be noted at bottom of this page. Follow her as she presents cities, iconic landmarks, and other related ideas from her story including aviation, adoption, disasters, families, religion, vineyards, music, and art.

Back cover …  Into the Vines is a novel of discovery, personal triumph and heroism. French Bleu, a vintage-jazz nightclub in Paris offers a reprieve to its inhabitants from death, illness and captivity. Olivier is a pilot who rescues stranded and desperate souls from famine and war torn areas of Africa, while Daniela, a young nurse, seeks that which is amiss in her own life. Brie, a strong woman, must find a destiny which awaits her own ambition. She celebrates a milestone birthday after encountering an illness, bringing grace and experience in her search for something more.

Daniela dreamed. “I want to be as confident as Brie on a sunny day in Savannah in the summertime.” From the vineyard cooking school in the garden-like Loire Valley, where these three lives meet, to the streets of Paris, where fate brings blessings from angst and longing. This story revels in realism.

This sanctuary seemingly held an inspirational deity as they witnessed a spiritual unity on the Ceremonial Cliffs. Hawa dreams of flying a plane someday, while Francis possesses natural talents of the musical kind. Together they keep a secret for fear of retribution. “I heard LOVE lasts forever and my mom says there are all kinds of love. So maybe you should find another kind of love, since your first love lasted forever,” said Francis.

Blogging

cropped-cm800px-claude_monet_-_the_magpie_-_google_art_project.jpgThough sometimes one feels like the lone magpie on the fence … the blogging world has many sites to visit, read and leave comments. To help expand the reach of my written words, I turn to others, and promote their work while continuing my own.

I have three Indie authors with published works for sale on Amazon. You get a feel for the person behind the writing with links to their product. The writing is real and imaginative, and as good as the big guys. My latest interviews are here.

Gardenlilie is my primary and oldest blog celebrating authors and artists. If you would like to be posted contact me here. I would love to showcase your talents, Indie or Professional.
