While in the corporate world, I went on bed rest and wrote my first book, and eventually, my hobby became a profession. My books are considered clean but sexy, fast-paced but not overly stressful. Whether it's fiction or non-fiction, I focus on themes of optimism, self-reliance, hope and perseverance. I'm a big believer in happy endings. The rest of my life is captured on Instagram, replete with chickens, a moose here and there and lots of travel which serve as the inspiration for my books. Sign up for my newsletter at my website Sarahgerdes.com for special promos. I also have IG-only offerings now and then at sarahgerdes_author on Instagram. In return for a free book (or four) I'd ask that you take a moment to write a review on your favorite site, be it Amazon, B & N, Goodreads, iTunes, Kobo or another venue. Writers live on reviews, and every one counts. Thanks for sharing your feedback with me and the world.
