New Book Release: A Puff of Silk

Please join me in congratulating Kathie Shoop on the publication of A Puff of Silk, book one in her new Bridal Shop Series! I had the pleasure of offering Kathie some copyediting assistance on this tale of a down-on-her-luck fashion designer's attempt to start over back in her hometown. Here's the book description:

A Novella—Book 1—Bridal Shop Series

New York City dress designer to the stars Amelia Pettipiece cleared a unique path to fashion-glory. With her career soaring, grand penthouse apartment on Central Park, and handsome boyfriend who supports her ambitions, Amelia could not have dreamed of a better life when she left Pittsburgh after college.

But when Amelia’s signature design, the famous FiFi Hererra’s wedding dress, disintegrates off the bride’s body as she walks down the aisle, every thread of Amelia’s charmed life unravels.

Amelia’s Instaglam life turns into an Instaslam. She runs back home to her gram’s place in Eagle Bend, Pennsylvania, to hide until she can figure out what happened to the dress and how to weave her tattered life back together.

Though Amelia finds comfort in staying with Gram, she begins to see that she’s neglected the woman who raised her. Pettipiece Boutique is falling apart and a slew of hunky hangers-on are showing interest in the riverfront property and in Amelia.

Just when Amelia is at her lowest, a customer with a unique problem arrives at the boutique, distracting Amelia from her crumbled life. Can she and Gram create the dress of a lifetime for a desperate bride? Can Amelia trust herself to send another bride down the aisle after the FiFi debacle? Does any of it really matter if Amelia’s already lost it all?

A Puff of Silk is available now in ebook format on Amazon. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and check out Kathie's website for the scoop on all of her books and her blog posts about writing and historical research.
