San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 16, 2007
With four novels to date and several in the works, author D.C. Elmore is destined for a successful career in the rising genre of Gay & Lesbian Fiction. Also writing under her pseudonym Drew Silver, this talented author has impressed the industry with her latest novel "A Season of Change" (ISBN 978-1419653650, BookSurge, 2006), which has been nominated for ForeWord Magazine's Book of the Year Award, and the LAMBDA Literary Award for Lesbian Romance.
Elmore's new book tells the story of two strong women, who though extremely successful in their careers, have nearly lost all faith in love and happy endings. She begins with Sierra, a best-selling author whose past year of heartwrenching events has hurled her into an endless spell of writer's block. Upon the advice of her literary agent, Sierra heads to snowy Colorado for a month-long vacation to clear her mind and put the pain of her shattered relationship behind her.
Shortly after arriving it would seem that fate had another plan, and a mysterious and beautiful woman enters Sierra's life - their connection is immediate. As Asha begins to melt the icicles around Sierra's heart, their relationship blossoms, and both women struggle with their feelings and the pains of their past. The transformative nature of their loving bond forces both Sierra and Asha to confront their demons, and ultimately make a life-changing decision - Will they allow their prior betrayals to avalanche this opportunity, or will each realize in time that her soul's companion is the other?
Elmore's connection with the emotional journey of her characters is evident. She reveals that the first draft of "A Season of Change" sat untouched for two years, until real life events inspired her to sit back down with her two characters and begin writing again. She had discovered the "certain something" that was lacking in her original storyline.
"I met my life partner in 2004 and realized that what was missing in this story was exactly what was missing from my life - unconditional love." After a transformative first year together, that in all accounts revived Elmore's own faith in happy endings, she started back on her novel with a deeper sense of understanding for her characters, and the arduous, yet fantastic journey they are both on to find love again.
D.C. Elmore grew up in a small farming community in Indiana with a strong mother who taught her to believe in herself and never settle for a scripted life. Elmore never doubted this advice and has pursued and achieved her dream of becoming a successful author. She currently resides with her partner in San Diego, CA. "A Season of Change" (ISBN 978-1419653650, BookSurge, 2006) can be purchased through local and online booksellers. For more information, visit http://www.dcelmore.com.
