Read Three Chapters From Live by Mary Ann Rivers + Giveaway!


The Fiction Vixen team loved Mary Ann Rivers’ debut novella, The Story Guy. Here is what Jen had to say about it:

I never think there is enough time to get into the meat of the story. By 12% I was head over heels dragged into this story. The writing is so complex and layered that I had to force myself to turn the pages slowly and read each sentence carefully. There is so much depth and meaning behind each phrase that the story felt like something far more than novella length. This was a complete love story, romance at its best.

Mary Ann’s first full-length novel will be released January 21. Fiction Vixen is pleased to feature three chapters from Live.

    I really enjoyed these first three chapters. The initial way you describe the two main characters really sets up the plot for the rest of the book. I can’t wait to read more about Des and Hefin.

    Thanks for the first three chapters sneak peek. I don’t know if I’ve ever read a book about a woodcarver. Looks interesting.
