Sail the Mediterranean Thru Author Normandie Fischer's Pen: Enter to Win the Novel

    Author Normandie Fischer has been sailing her entire life. She even owns her own sailing craft and cruised around Pacific Mexico with her family. Jealous yet? Live vicariously through Normandie's pen as you read this modern sailing love story.  Enter to WIN below.

Sailing out of Darkness

Love conquers all?​
Maybe for some people.
When Samantha Ransom flies to Italy to escape a disastrous affair with her childhood best friend, the last thing on her mind is romance. But Teo Anderson is nothing like her philandering ex-husband or her buddy, Jack, who, despite his live-in girlfriend, caught Sam off guard with his flashing black eyes and his passion for sailing.​​

Teo represses his own scars, both physical and emotional, by writing mysteries—until one strange and compelling vision comes to life in the person of Sam. Seeking answers, he offers friendship to this skittish visitor. If he can't write her into one of his stories, at least he can enjoy her company.

But not even sailing the cobalt waters of the Mediterranean can assuage Sam’s guilt. Soon the consequences of her behavior escalate, and the fallout threatens them all.

                                          A life-long sailor, Normandie Fischer has been writing and editing professionally since the seventies. Her non-fiction credits include Survivor, an action memoir written for the late Reza Fazeli, Iranian social activist. She and her husband retired from cruising Pacific Mexico in their ketch, Sea Venture, to care for her 87-year-old mother, who loves to sail with them. After the release of Becalmed, they took Sea Venture on a publicity trip from their coastal Carolina home and were there for the birth of Normandie’s first grandbaby. Sailing out of Darkness released in November 2013, and Heavy Weather, another Beaufort book, will release in March 2015.

    1. Beth, for comments like that? Absolutely. Just drop me a note.

  2. Excellent, Normandie! Can't wait to sail to the Med ourselves AND would love to read your book. Cheers!

    1. Hope you enjoy the story. Sam sails her own small boat on a river off the Chesapeake Bay and ventures forth with a new friend near Portofino, so she's not having the adventure I still hope to--you know, the Greek Islands, the Adriatic, all those lovely sailing places... Let me know if you get there.

  3. Congratulations! I would like to read about your adventures..please pick me! :)

  4. Thank you for the blog. I hope I win your book!

  5. I'd enjoy sailing away with your book.. Please add me to the drawing :)
