Sarka-Jonae is the final author in my author spotlight group.
She has been a very busy lady this year, and I think that her achievements speak for themselves!
BOOK DEAL WITH BOOKTROPE PUBLISHING
Sarka-Jonae has signed with Booktrope to republish the first novel in the Between Boyfriends series, as well as the second book. She has been working toward this goal since she finished the first draft of Between Boyfriends in 2005. For eight years she spent time querying, rewriting, self-publishing, and promoting…and waiting. It was all worth it when the Indie publisher offered her a contract.
Sarka-Jonae is anticipating the release of a Between Boyfriends paperback in September or October 2013!
In the meantime, Between Boyfriends is being sold as an eBook for Kindle and Nook. Booktrope will not be making significant editorial changes, so there's no reason to wait to purchase the novel for only $2.99.
SEQUEL TO BETWEEN BOYFRIENDS
Even better, Booktrope has also decided to publish Sarka-Jonae’s sequel to Between Boyfriends, Between the Sheets. Its release date will be announced in the future.

A NOTE FROM CAROLINE
I met Sarka-Jonae in a review exchange forum on the World Literary Café website back in March. We reviewed each other’s books (see my review of Between Boyfriends way back in my blog on page 2) and chatted a little about self-publishing and marketing. We became fast friends. This summer, I began looking for a better way to market my book, and Sarka mentioned that she was starting her own publicity company. She had done so well with advertising her own book, and getting results, that I jumped at the chance to work with her! We’ve been working together for almost a month now, and my Internet presence is growing by leaps and bounds. This weekend is the big test—a huge sale promotion and blog tour. I’ll keep you up-to-date on our progress!
