Spotlight Thursday: Amy Patrick

I’m thrilled to share with you the cover of Amy Patrick’s upcoming book and a bit of information about Amy, a fellow 2014 Romance Writers of America® Golden Heart ® finalist.

AmyAmy is a two-time Golden Heart® finalist (2013 and 2014). She lives in Rhode Island with her husband and two sons and actually craves the heat and humidity of Mississippi, where she grew up.

About her new release:


Channel 20Something by Amy Patrick
(20Something, #1)
Publication date: August 12th 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance


22-year-old Heidi Haynes is almost one year into her “real life.” She has her first reporting job and her first apartment, but she’s yet to experience first love. Yes, she’s in a comfortable relationship with her college sweetheart, and according to her friends and family, he’s perfect for her. But for some reason she’s not as eager to talk about walking down the aisle as he is.
And while Heidi’s doing what she wants to do, she’s not where she wants to be. She longs for big cities, big-market breaking news, and real independence from her way-too-close-by helicopter parents. Problem is, the last time she left the security of home for new places and new people, things didn’t go so well. Disastrously, in fact, and she came running back to a local college and a “safe” boyfriend.
Well-traveled Californian Aric Serrano plans to stay in small-market-Southern-Hell just long enough to grab a cup of coffee and put together a kick-ass “escape tape”. He’ll serve his one-year contract, then he’s taking off for a higher rung on the TV sports ladder—alone—the way he likes it. But when he walks into the newsroom and meets Heidi, he may have finally found something and someone worth committing to.
Heidi would be so much more comfortable if she could avoid her new co-worker—he’s just her type—the type she’s so careful to avoid. But that becomes impossible when she and Aric are forced to work together on the weekend news. Now there’s no denying the attraction between them, and she’ll have to decide between settling for the “good enough” life she already has or taking the risk of going for what she dreams of, an exciting career and a real love.


And now … the big reveal … the cover:


Great cover and I love the summary! I can’t wait to get my hands on it, come August.

Thanks, Amy!

  1. Yay for Amy’s beautiful cover! And yay for your wonderful website, Carrie! Can’t wait to finally get together in San Antonio.
    And Amy! Why must you make us wait until August for the book? You’re such a tease!

  2. I so agree, Kim! About the beautiful cover and why is she making us wait??
    I’m so looking forward to SA, but trying not to stress about it. I got new business cards yesterday. Yikes!
    Thanks for stopping by!!

  3. Hi Carrie!! Thank you so much for revealing my cover today. I enjoy your blog, and I’m honored to be on it. By the way, I love Kristan Higgins, too, and my editor tells me my writing is a little bit like hers for the NA crowd. (*hope*hope*swoon*) Sorry for the wait– it’s killing me, too– making sure all my little duckies are in a row before August 12!

  4. The cover is gorgeous. Can’t wait for August and can’t wait to read the next in the series! So get to writing!

  5. Amy, I love the cover, new website, and the blurb! Can’t wait to read your book in August and meet you and our Dream Weaver sisters soon. BTW I’ll trade my share of the July SA humidity and heat for your Rhode Island weather. It will fit in your luggage, right?~Jillian

  6. It’s a gorgeous cover, Amy! I especially like “20 Something” on the mic. I look forward to reading the book, and I think you should leak your release date to everyone you meet in San Antonio. 🙂
