An Affinity For Shadows, The Debut Novel of Local Author Liz R. Newman
SAN FRANCISCO, CA. October, 2011- - Author Liz R. Newman has signed a contract with Gypsy Shadow Publishing Company to sell the rights to publication for An Affinity For Shadows, a three hundred and eighteen page novel that tells the tale of an ambitious broadcast journalist caught amidst the tragedy of the World Trade Center attacks.
Award-winning broadcast journalist Kate Theodore has it all under control, until she rushes to the scene of one of the greatest tragedies in American history in pursuit of the perfect story. Pressuring her cameraman into accompanying her, she feels responsible for his untimely death. Her guilt opens the door to transformation in a desperate attempt to rediscover her soul.
Brushing aside a chance meeting with a handsome Italian stranger, Kate soon becomes captivated by his charms, but he is a man whose heart is shrouded in secrets. From the glittering streets of Manhattan to the lush gardens of a villa on the outskirts of Rome, An Affinity For Shadows is a decadent tale of love and rediscovery that will leave you spellbound.
An Affinity For Shadows is a story of self-discovery and transformation, and is one of the first mainstream romances so far in history to utilize the incident of the 9/11 attacks as a romantic heroine’s major catalyst for change.
