  1. Dear Jackie,

    I’m excited to announce that on May 13th, The Story Plant will be releasing my new novel, Pressed Pennies. I was hoping that you might consider reviewing the novel for your blog (and whether you prefer ePub, mobi, PDF or print), and I’ll get it sent right out to you. If you do not have time to review the book (though there is no deadline), please let me know if you’d consider posting a guest blog (book excerpt or author interview, along with a link to the book) on May 13th to help me spread the word. I’d really appreciate it!

    Here are some of the book details below:

    Brief Synopsis:
    Rick and Abby grew up together, became best friends, and ultimately fell in love. Circumstance tore them apart in their early teens, though, and they went on to lives less idyllic than they dreamed about in those early days. Rick has had a very successful career, but his marriage flat-lined. Abby has a magical daughter, Paige, but Paige’s father nearly destroyed Abby’s spirit.

    Now fate has thrown Rick and Abby together again. In their early thirties, they are more world-weary than they were as kids. But their relationship still shimmers, and they’re hungry to make up for lost time. However, Paige, now nine, is not nearly as enthusiastic. She’s very protective of the life she’s made with her mother and not open to the duo becoming a trio. Meanwhile, Rick has very little experience dealing with kids and doesn’t know how to handle Paige. This leaves Abby caught between the two people who matter the most to her. What happens when the life you’ve dreamed of remains just inches from your grasp?

    Pressed Pennies is a nuanced, intensely romantic, deeply heartfelt story of love it its many incarnations, relationships in their many guises, and family in its many meanings. It is the most accomplished and moving novel yet from a truly great storyteller of the heart.

    Early Praise:
    “Pressed Pennies is priceless! Steve Manchester has an obvious love of words and an amazing ability to use those words to create lasting images in the reader’s mind. His detail-oriented, richly drawn characters and descriptions make this story leap off the pages.” – Joyce Handzo, In the Library Reviews

    “Pressed Pennies is a warm, lovely story about generosity, unconditional love and acceptance, and a celebration of family.” – Jane Bowers, Romance Reviews Today

    “An exceptional story about family, life and love…Pressed Pennies examines family life at a much simpler time” – Books2Mention Magazine

    “From Steven Manchester and the wonderful characters of Pressed Pennies, we
    learn about real life and true love…and that you can go back.” – Phyllis Muhlhauser, Romance Book Cafe

    Again, please let me know if you would like to review Pressed Pennies (and whether you prefer ePub, mobi, PDF or print), and I’ll get it sent right out to you.

    Many thanks!
