RELEASE DAY for The Memoir of Johnny Devine Plus a Ridiculously Cheap Deal

It’s HERE! 

My “classic” romantic inspirational drama, The Memoir of Johnny Devine, released TODAY and I’m thrilled to report that the paperback version, which was scheduled to release in a few weeks, is available now as well! This is definitely a plus for those who love to give the inexpensive but lasting gift of Story for Christmas. 

The Story: A young WWII widow hired to write an exclusive memoir lands on McCarthy’s hit list and must clear her name while trying not to fall in love with the born-again, ex-Hollywood heartthrob whose scandalous past keeps him too busy to notice her. Or does it?

SALE: To celebrate Johnny D's launch, Ashberry Lane is offering my first two books ridiculously cheap! This week only (Dec. 1-7), grab your e-copies of Like There's No Tomorrow and Like a Love Song for only $0.99 each! Find these titles at your favorite bookstore, but that price won't last long.

Book reviews are already coming in, and it's an indescribable honor to hear how the story is touching hearts. Reviewers are using phrases like “romantic tension” "grace" and "redemption" about this story. 

Check out what readers are already saying about The Memoir of Johnny Devine.

Here's just one of several great FIVE-Star reviews:
Get Ready to Curl Up with Johnny's Memoirs

“I pretended to be somebody I wanted to be until finally I became that person. Or he became me.”   -Cary Grant
It's not easy being one of Hollywood's leading men. There's something about the glare of the spotlight that makes people do things that they never thought they would - take chances with their life and gamble recklessly with the lives and emotions of others. All while flashing a white smile on the red carpet.
Johnny Devine had a meteoric rise to stardom, becoming known for two things; his immeasurable charm, and the number of starlets he wooed. But soon his acting skills weren't enough to cover the pain he felt and the alcohol forever lingering on his breath. When Eliza Saunderson takes the job as Johnny's biographer, she's determined to keep her distance. She doesn't want to add falling in love with a womanizer who claims he's changed to her list of woes. The Federal Agent accusing her of being a Russian Communist has given her enough to worry about. But as she helps (John) tell his tale, she discovers grace, redemption, and something even deeper. 
Camille Eide hasn't simply written a story; she's masterfully unfurled a glamorous world of Hollywood, intrigue, and love. As you follow the threads of Johnny and Eliza's stories, you find yourself transported to another time and another place. Reading Johnny's memoirs is like watching one of your favorite black and white movies late at night, wrapped in a blanket and eating popcorn. Comforting, familiar, and simply divine.

What a stunning review!

No comments:



I've published five novels and 2 novellas (more about those on my website.) I've been writing all my life, but decided in 2007 to get serious about being published.

I love action movies and Jane Austen. (she’s dead, I know. I found that out when I tried to get her to endorse my novel)

They let me play Bass guitar and sing in a worship band.

I can produce 4 dozen homemade cinnamon rolls in a flash for a crowd of drooling young adults. Or publishing house editors.

I used to have a Harley. Now we have six (going on seven) grandkiddos. Decent trade, really.

I am a proud Grammy. Don't even think about taking candy from my babies.

I hate shopping (Yes, I'm aware that I'm a girl)

I've lived in Oregon all my life, spent time in Eugene (Go DUCKS!), Springfield, Reedsport, and Smith River. Which is not really a town, but a river, about 70 miles long, a tributary of the Umpqua River in southwest Oregon.

Although it's not a town, it is a community with a strong sense of pioneer history. It's cool to say you've lived there, especially if you lived there during the days when you had to take a boat to school. No joke! The old farmhouse my grandfather and my mother grew up in still stands, nestled into a narrow, pasture carpeted valley, complete with a swimmin' hole and its own 'crick'. It may turn up in one of my novels.

There's a rumor that my ancestors had a connection with the Mafia back in Sicily. I used to fantasize as a kid about a big black limo with tinted windows pulling up and whisking me away from school. Ahhh. So THAT'S why I'm having so much trouble conjugating my dangling participles now.

NOT RANDOM: I am challenged by the truth and amazed by the grace of God. And it's either in spite of or because of that grace that I hold a PhD in Learning Stuff the Hard Way.
