Press Release: September 05, 2015

Best Selling Contemporary romance author releases new book Loving Redemption

Contemporary Author and Amazon bestselling novelist of Stolen Innocence and Never Forgotten Love, announces her new release of
Anchored To Love, bringing her rave reviews.

SM, released her fourth book Anchored To Love July 2015.

All Charlie ever wanted to do was play softball in college. She’d worked all her life for that one dream and she finally made it. The only thing was it was on the other side of the country. So, she did what she needed to do to keep her dream alive.

However, when she refused to party and drink with her teammate, she was accused of not being a team player, but there was no way she would do anything to jeopardize her scholarship. She would walk away
from anyone that could possibly ruin her dream.

Then she met Zain and for the first time in her life, she felt complete. He was her first love, her soul mate. Carson was always on his own his parents had other priorities that didn't include Carson. Carson was a genius, graduating at sixteen; he decided to travel the USA. He looked and acted more like a California surfer than the computer nerd he was.

He never believed in relationships, who needs the drama, he was a manwhore through and through.That is until he ran into Charlie; Char was different, she was special and he knew it from the start. They
were inseparable spending all their free time together.

That is until the misunderstanding happened.

"You knew how I felt about drugs we just talked about it and you reassured me that they weren't a problem, and now you have other kids hooked on what you're selling them. How could you do that?"

Have you ever found the love of your life and then lost them over a misunderstanding?

Have you ever had a dream just at the tips of your fingertip and it slips between them, lost forever. Have you ever had a dream ripped out of your hands only to be given another dream a dream you were never

You never think you will love again, but life thinks differently. Then life throws you two more curve balls.

SM. had always thought about writing, but her family always came first. It wasn’t until her youngest daughter went off to college that she started thinking about it again.

"I am amazed at the response from readers, and from all over the world. I am in awe at how well my books have done and the 4 and 5 star reviews I've received. I have fans in the UK, Australia, and Canada offering their homes to me if I would come and do a book signing in their country."

“Can you say WOW!! I loved, loved, loved this book. S M Stryker did not disappoint with this third book in the Second Chances Series.” By rlb2746

“Absolutely amazing book!! This amazing author has done it again! I couldn't put this book down truly amazing!“ By Kayleigh UK Goodreads.com

“WOW! I don't even know where to start as my mind is blown after finishing this book. WHAT. AN. EPIC. RIDE!” By Jennifer P

When asked about when and why she began writing?

“I started my first book Stolen Innocence April 2014. Initially I started to write so I could heal. I had been abused for 16+ years and I felt broken. When it finally came out, it was swept under the rug as if it never happened. I wanted to bring sexual abuse to the forefront. There are so many people that have been sexually abused that are still hiding in shame and someone needs to let these men, women, boys, and girls know that it isn't their fault and they don't need to carry around guilt or demons any longer.” (Sorry soapbox)

Please tell us about your books?

My books are inspiring. I try to show that no matter what happens in life you can get through it and come out a better person for it. Life happens, and things happen for a reason, sometimes we find that what we go through helps others.

Asked what is your favorite quote from any of your novels and why?
From Loving Redemption: "Mitch you’re fighting it so hard and you know you’re going to lose. It's like a willow root. It quietly makes its way, winding and twisting around you until it's too late and there is no way to stop it. Even if you cut it off, that root will continue to grow, shooting out more roots until it takes over."

What can we expect from you in the future?

Currently I am writing Sins of a Child. It will be a stand-alone book about a girl that learns she has had a protector after being abused as a child. My last book in the Second Chance Series, Never Expected Love is now getting ready for editing. Most of the characters that were in Never Forgotten Love will have their own book that is unless my readers want something different and I am editing a version of Stolen Innocence that Amazon had banned. Once my readers found out that the original had been banned they all started asking for it. So, I am going through the final edits and looking to publish it.

She will be at the Passion of Portland September 12, 2015 at the Crown Plaza for a book signing or at Mt Angel Oktoberfest September 17, 2015 volunteering at one of the beer gardens.

I never realized just how much I needed to write. This is my outlet my sanctuary, my life. Read more at www.smstryker.com
