Exceptional. Stellar. Award-Winning Author. Phenomenal series writer.
Oh, you've heard of her through the literary grapevine: Romance Slam Jam, West Coast Readers Retreat...surely one of her works is in your collection.
In case you're wondering who this is, it's none other than Iris Bolling.
The Richmond, Virginia author has been causing quite the buzz being featured in several articles, including USA Today's "Happily Ever After" section courted by Michelle Monkou.
Bolling has been building an audience in the writing world since 2008 with her debut novel, "Once You've Touched The Heart." This novel set a platform for readers alike to embrace the political world with saucy characters, head-turning plots and love/hate motives for anyone to enjoy. Mentored by the likes of Beverly Jenkins and Gwyneth Bolton, Ms. Bolling has found her niche and fanbase with this particular six book series.
Although the readers craved more about JD Harrision and company, Bolling stepped out of that realm to introduce a new set of characters in a standalone story, "Night of Seduction/Heaven's Gate." Little did she know that some of the secondary players in this story would blossom later on with "The Pendleton Rule."
Even with hindsight being 20/20, the title prior to "The Pendleton Rule" would be the one to start an Internet sensation on Facebook. A simplistic cover to introduce the Gems and Gents series titled "Teach Me" did just that. The cover featured a basic black background with a young woman in a red miniskirt and red high heels. When the cover was released on Facebook, the conversation about the shoes went viral, causing loyal supporters to change their "shoes" up to three times a day in honor of the author. Men even got in on the action, posting dress shoes, ties and cufflinks to support in their own crafty way.
In four days, Ms. Bolling will unveil another written masterpiece featuring a favorite character from "The Heart Series" named Joshua "Absolute" Lassiter. He's the C.I.A. Operative readers all love and want to be loved by. We, her loyal subjects await his presence.
