Traveling Heart by new author Sylvie Vaillancourt

Traveling Heart Cover

Amanda is a go-getter!  She’s smart and ambitious, but her naiveté and wealth attracts deceptive users into her circle.  She must be constantly vigilant to protect her family and friends and her most vulnerable heart.

Having developed a passion for traveling and photography from spending countless hours with her father while growing up, she uses her unique style of photography to establish a wildly successful career.  However, spending a great deal of time away from home prevents Amanda from developing strong, meaningful bonds in any of her relationships.

When Amanda meets Sally at her first photography exhibition, she desires much more than a one-night stand with this exquisite woman, but Sally struggles with the nature of Amanda’s job and her frequent absences.  

Their paths cross frequently, but Sally’s fears and doubts will sorely test Amanda’s willingness to be with her.  Will Amanda and Sally ever find their happily ever after?

A taste:

Amanda posed with clients and fans alike and answered questions while walking along the displays looking at her work.

Amanda stopped in front of a nude she had made of Roberta. It was a revealing pose except neither her face nor her hands were showing to divulge her identity. She was delighted when she noticed a red dot on its card. Amanda looked at it intently and remembered a time when Roberta had loved her very much.

Amanda realized there was a presence by her side. When she turned to look, the sinuous brunette was standing nearby holding a bottle of sparkling water for her.

“I guessed with all the talking, you must be thirsty.” She offered the beverage with a smile.

“I am. Thank you.” Amanda took the bottle then took a pull on the straw. It felt good, and she took a few seconds before she could express her full gratitude.

“My name is Sally Worthington. I’m a friend of the TV journalist that interviewed you over an hour ago. Thank you for sending the waiter my way with wine and appetizers. That was very thoughtful of you.”

“Don’t mention it. It was only natural that you should get something to drink and eat. I did not expect such a turnout. I saw you were interested in some of my prints. Would you like me to give you a tour?”

“Yes, please.” Sally looped her arm into Amanda’s and followed along as Amanda mentioned where she had taken the shots Sally seemed most attracted to.

Sally was easy to be with. She was very attentive and asked intelligent questions. She also looked comfortable with herself, and she had a pleasant disposition.

When Amanda mentioned where she took the shots and gave details, occasionally Sally would say she had vacationed there or somewhere nearby, so Amanda discovered she liked to travel. Amanda felt comfortable with her, and Sally seemed to reciprocate the feeling. Sally kept close to her, their hands touching, and often, she would loop her arm into Amanda’s.

Around eleven o’clock, Amanda thanked everyone as they were leaving. She went to the band and thanked them for the excellence of their musical selections, then thanked the serving staff from the catering company for their exceptional service for the evening. Amanda was starving, so she sat at the bar to eat a few appetizers.

Sally asked her, “Did you find time to eat anything during the evening?”
Amanda looked at her as she realized she had eaten only a few appetizers. “Jason, please make me a cosmopolitan. Also, make a martini with two olives for my guest.” Sally was pleasantly surprised that Amanda had noticed her drink of choice.

Profile Picture

Lyman Rate is an avid reader of military history as well as fantasy and science fiction.  When not working or writing, he is reading and if not doing those, is usually spending time with his wife and two dogs.  Lyman is married to his long-time girlfriend and with his dogs, Joplin and Zeus, has called Kansas home for most of his life.

In his free time, he likes to take nature walks and practice photography.  His writing career started about four years ago when he was challenged by his wife (at the time girlfriend) to see if he could write a novel.  Thinking this was a daunting task, he accepted the challenge and wrote his first book.  Since then he now has two published books with a third being published.

Lyman is grateful to have the ability to write and truly hopes that those who read his books will enjoy them as much as he enjoyed writing them.  Living in Kansas for the largest portion of his life has taught him that life is like a storm: It can be calm, but when that storm hits and everything is crazy, you hang on and the calm will return.

Lyman’s first book with Shadoe Publishing will be a fantasy fiction novel called:

Final Book Cover Idea

Welcome to Paris, “The City of Lights”—where the only requirement to visit is being “Undead.”

Struggling with a past tragedy and growing unrest with my sister, I accepted an invitation to visit my very close friends in Paris.

My early morning flight had just arrived in Paris. As I made my way through the busy concourse, timed seemed to stop. All my mind could register were the three friends  standing in front of me. Janine and her two Brother’s, Luc and Jaycee.

Meanwhile, back in the States my sister Elena had taken great joy in antagonizing me. Elena’s jealousy would come to be the driving force that would lead to the culmination of a showdown that will resolve a past injustice and ultimately lead to the destruction of our relationship, and a much darker, sinister means to an end.

Would the love that Luc and I came to share, along with Janine and Jaycee be enough to overcome the deceit, treachery and betrayal we would encounter? Would the secret my friends have destroy me or renew me?

Little did I know, they would literally hold my soul in their hands.

In both Paperback and E-Book!

Her Calling Cover

In a world on the verge of being told that everything they once thought was merely myth, is real, can one teenage girl cope with life changes she never saw coming?

Seventeen year old Kyndle Callahan began her year as a typical high school senior. Well, as typical as a girl can be while living life as a werewolf.  She wasn’t bitten or scratched as most people believe all werewolves are made, no, she was born into the pack that’s always been her extended family. She’s never seen the people she grew up with as the monsters of myth and legend but everything in her life is thrown into a tailspin when her father springs some shocking news on her. Suddenly, reality as a werewolf is much scarier than the stories humans tell. Stunned by the prospect of spending her life bonded to someone she can’t even stand sharing the same space with and devastated at the thought of losing the only love she’s ever known, can Kyndle settle into who and what she is in time to set things right? Can the girl that grew up knowing only pack law stand up, embrace her true calling, and become the woman she was meant to be despite going against everything her family believes?

With the help of her best friend Abbey, Kyndle must navigate a confusing world of wolf culture, teenage drama, and coming out in a group that believes her lifestyle is unnatural.  Follow her journey through pain, heartache, several states, and the fight to be with the girl she loves and take her place in the world.
