I’ve just started to read Gamer Girl by Glynis Astie, a contemporary, humorous romance with a gaming thread.

First line of the book.

The sun slowly crested the horizon as I reached the top of the hill.

Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.

Struck by tragedy at an early age, Meri Palmer escaped into the only world she understood. Within the virtual realm of online gaming, she lived a life filled with mythical creatures and thrilling adventures, where she was strong, powerful, clever, and beautiful—everything she believed she wasn’t in real life. As the years went by, her desire to cling to her cherished fantasyland only grew stronger. 

But when Meri meets Morgan, equal parts gorgeous and goofball, she begins to wonder if the time has finally come to rejoin the so-called real world. Channeling the bravery of her fairy warrior alter ego, Meri slowly lets Morgan beyond the protective walls she’s built around her heart. Just as she finds a comfortable groove in an uncertain world, Morgan succumbs to insecurities of his own, leaving her lost and confused. Through her battle to regain her equilibrium, Meri will discover that even in reality, things aren’t always what they seem. 

Will Meri win the battle raging in her heart and summon the will to rescue her knight in shining armor? Or will she give in to the fear and find her game over?

Introduce the main character using only three words.

Fun, vulnerable, zany

“Nice, Uncle Tony.” I would find out later he had raided Pinterest for ideas, choosing to modify the recipes for “Fuzzy Balls,” “On My Ass” and “Sand in the Crack.” I never dreamed there were so many colorfully named drinks in the world. You live, you learn.

    • I have no gaming skills, but I enjoy the idea of fantasy worlds, so I had my heroine play an online role playing game filled with dragons, fairies and magic. It was so much fun to write! I’m very pleased that you think it sounds interesting. 🙂 Thank you!
