100 Copies of The Grunt for Wounded Warriors by Latrivia S. Nelson

You all know how I love the military.  My husband’s service to the Corps is something that we are very proud of.  So in celebration of Memorial Day this year we are going to give away 100 copies of The Grunt to various Wounded Warriors around the country.  Now, I know that there are vets everywhere and many are not housed at the bases.

I’m reaching out to you to ask that if you know of vets who love to read, please send me their information so that we can get them a copy in the mail or on their e-readers.  I plan to match the paperbacks with PDF copies and purchase copies for people online.

We’re currently looking into Gift Certificates for the Kindle and Nook or ways to charge copies on a company account for readers.  We have done this in the past very successfully and we want this drive to be awesome.

The Grunt is something that both men and women can read and it’s been received very well worldwide.  Let’s use this opportunity to share the book with those who have sacrificed so much.  Please send an email to Latrivia@LatriviaNelson.com with the title “100 Wounded Warriors”.

Thanks again,

Latrivia

Saving Anya Release Date Changed

First of all, thanks for the thousands of email and well wishes for the family.  I truly appreciate it during this time.  Of course, Iraq is the gift that keeps on giving for many military families and mine is no different.  However, Adam is doing much better and we hope to resolve his issues in the New Year.  As a wife and mother, I had to re-arrange my priorities, and even though the book was so close to release, I had to pull it as well as The World In Reverse. 

It was my hope to release them during the Christmas Break.  However, now I am at least two weeks off the mark.  The books will be released in late January or early February.  I refuse to give another date just to disappoint my wonderful fans. 

I love you dearly and I hope that you can forgive me for the tardiness of these two very important projects.

This week, I plan to upload the first chapter of Saving Anya to the blog for your reading pleasure, also in interim I will post some new discussions so that we can keep in touch. 

It truly is an honor to have you as fans.  I have 3,456 emails from readers about the new books.  I plan to respond to each and every one, but it will take time.  However, I don’t want you to think at any time that you aren’t appreciated, because you truly are. 

While Saving Anya will be the last book of The Medlov Series, it won’t be the last book about the Medlov clan.  The next installment (Volume 5-7 will be released in Winter 2012) and the new Medlov Legacy series will be released in late 2012, detailing the early adult lives of all of your favorite characters’ children. 

One thing at time, I know.  I’m working on getting these new books to you in e-book, Kindle, Nook and paperback format.  Also, don’t forget that we now use PayLoadz for all of our e-books to ensure that you receive your immediately.  I’ve listened to your suggestions and RiverHouse searched high and low to find a service that will accommodate you.  I hope that PayLoadz delivers for us all.  We’ve even set up a survey to track your thoughts on the new service.  After all, it is for you.

Well, that’s all for now.  Thanks again for everything. 

Sincerely,

Trivi

THE GRUNT CLIMBS TO NUMBER ONE SPOT ON AMAZON’S BESTSELLER LIST

Multicultural Romance Author Latrivia S. Nelson Pens Authentic Tale about Marine Corps Life

(August 10, 2011 – Memphis, TENN)  RiverHouse Publishing’s bestselling author, Latrivia S. Nelson, released the third book in her bestselling Lonely Heart Series, entitled The Grunt.  The full-length romance novel is the second bestseller out of the series and has already climbed to the coveted number 1 spot on Amazon’s Multicultural Bestseller’s List since its e-book release during the last week in July. The Ugly Girlfriend, which has stayed on the Amazon Multicultural Bestseller’s List since the first week of January 2011, has also been a fan favorite, giving Nelson two books on the same bestselling list for the second time this year.  This is the tenth book that Nelson has released in the last three years and the fourth book she had released in 2011. 

“The Grunt is a powerful story of love and life in the Marine Corps.  As a wife of a combat-wounded, retired Marine and having spent many years at Camp Lejeune, I was especially excited about writing this novel.  It infuses the alpha male qualities that my readers like in their characters with the power of a strong, yet loving woman.  Moreover, it details the struggles of loving someone who is serving in the military and all that is required of them by our country while trying to balance a relationship.”

The Grunt is available on Amazon’s Kindle, Barnes and Noble’s Nook and Nelson’s official website (www.latrivianelson.info).  The paperback will be available for sale nationwide on September 1, 2011 for $10. 

Synopsis of The Grunt:

Staff Sergeant Brett Black has a bad feeling that something is going to go terribly wrong. And as a Recon Marine, he pays attention to his gut. Only nothing can prepare him for what he encounters when he arrives at home from the base. His wife is leaving him, and there is nothing he can do about it.

Abandoned with a kid, the super alpha-male has to become domesticated quickly or find a willing substitute to help him with his son. Only the substitute he finds is no substitution.

Courtney Lawless is a true wild card. The budding librarian loves the classics and carries herself like a lady by day. But she also is full of life and surfs the waves of the Atlantic Ocean by night. Since her parents won’t pay for college because of bad decisions in her past, the reformed bad-girl takes a job as Brett’s live-in nanny to finish paying for school.

Brett has never seen a woman of such complex duality. Used to a wife who won’t clean, cook or even talk to him, when he starts to live with Courtney, he realizes what he’s been missing his entire life. Educated, amazing and refreshingly honest, the only thing that that this transparent beauty hides from her new boss is that she’s also the Lieutenant Colonel’s daughter.

Faced with another deployment to Afghanistan soon, the brooding Marine is forced to come out his shell to fight for what he loves; only this time, the war is at home.

Enjoy the interracial must-read romance of the summer, The Grunt, the third and longest book in Latrivia S. Nelson’s Lonely Heart Series.
