(Newswire.net -- June 10, 2013) Portland, OR -- “This has been such a fun ride. I wrote my first romance novel as a ‘what the heck … let’s give it a try’ kind of thing and romance readers from around the world loved it as much as I enjoyed writing it. It has launched a whole new career for me,” AJ smiled. “I love the interaction with the readers. We just finished celebrating 50,000 downloads of the ‘First Class’ novels and our Facebook followers made it an exciting event. By posting comments, pictures and sharing YouTube videos with their friends, they earned points towards winning a Kindle Fire and other great prizes.”
“When I emailed one of the winners to let her know she’d won an autographed copy of my book, she just couldn’t believe that the author was personally contacting her to get her address to mail the book. We’ve exchanged a few emails now and I feel like I have a new friend and that’s the best part of being a self-published romance author,” Harmon beamed.
“I’ve read romance novels since, well, since I could read. I grew up wanting to marry Mr. Darcy,” AJ smiled. “And over the years countless romance novels have graced my nightstand sending me off to happy dreams. I am still in shock to think that my books are doing that same thing for someone else. It’s crazy! But I am very grateful for this opportunity, and to the readers who are buying my books and loving them. Every time I get another 5-star review I just grin. This is a dream come true.”
AJ Harmon is a rising star among new romance authors. This “Top Rated Author” enjoys a 4.7 star rating when you average all 6 of her books across multiple platforms such as Amazon, GoodReads, iBook, Nook and Google Play. Most self-published authors struggle for months before finding the success Harmon has enjoyed with her debut novel “First Class to New York” which was released on Kindle Nov. 17, 2012. Since then she has written and published 5 more contemporary romance novels in the First Class Novels series.
“David, one of the seven drop dead gorgeous Lathem brothers this series is about, claims the leading man role in First Class Menu. Unlike Matt and Mark, his older brothers, David is not cut out to be a business tycoon and has struggled with what he wanted to be when he finally grew up. A talented painter, he has always resisted the call to be a starving artist and finds his dream job as a curator at an art gallery in New York City.” AJ’s passion for this story radiated in her words. “Tired of surviving on take-out food David takes a cooking class and discovers cooking is an art form, just in a different media.”
Will he discover love and learn to cook up a little romance on the side? A hot, artistic Lathem man who can cook would be quite a catch. Who will claim his heart?”
