I’m the Guest Author at the Saratoga Library!

Victoria M. Johnson Guest Author

On October 1st I had the honor of being the guest author for the popular Authors Series at the Saratoga Library.  The event was hosted by the Friends of the Saratoga Library and they were wonderful hosts.  It was a fantastic experience with a friendly and captive audience.  They asked great questions, and it’s always nice when I’m asked something new.  The hour passed by quickly.  For those who live in the Bay Area they will continue the series each month with a new guest speaker.

Local Author Day at Los Gatos Library

I’ll be reading an exciting passage from my romance novel, The Doctor’s Dilemma.  Each author will have ten minutes to present and we’ll have Q&A after everyone reads.

My Novel Available in Kindle and Paperback!

I pleased to announce that my romance novel, The Doctor’s Dilemma, has been released in paperback and in eBook format on October 16, 2012!  Previously only available in hardcover, this is quite an exciting step.  I am hopeful that these additional formats will allow the book to reach more readers.  Montlake Romance, an imprint of Amazon, is publishing the paperback.  While I’m a bit nostalgic that family-owned Avalon Books (the original publisher) decided to sell the company to Amazon, I am pleased that the shift means The Doctor’s Dilemma has gained new life.

The Doctors Dilemma, romance by Victoria M. Johnson

You might remember that The Doctor’s Dilemma was a finalist in the 2012 Booksellers’ Best Award.  It finaled in two categories, Best Traditional Romance and Best First Book!  The Doctor’s Dilemma, set in rural Mexico, tells the story of a doctor and nurse who work at La Clínica Pediátrica, and the villagers whose lives they touch.  The lead characters have their own personal issues to resolve but they are forever changed by their time in this small village.  I hope you’ll check it out.

The Doctor’s Dilemma

The Doctor's Dilemma by Victoria M. JohnsonThe Doctor’s Dilemma

Doctor Ryan Novak wants nothing to do with women whose only wish is to be a doctor’s trophy wife. Luckily, working in his pediatric clinic in rural Mexico puts romance last on his mind.
Nurse Grace Sinclair arrives at La Clínica Pediátrica with a broken heart and a vow never to fall in love again. The temporary nursing assignment is exactly what she needs to escape her painful memories and to rejuvenate her spirit.
After a rocky introduction, Ryan is skeptical of Grace’s motives for joining the remote clinic, and Grace believes he is like the doctors back home, demanding and self-centered. However, when disaster strikes the village, they soon realize they are equally committed to helping the community, and their close working relationship makes it impossible to ignore their attraction to one another.
When Ryan offers Grace a permanent assignment, her pain and fear stand in the way, and he wonders if he’ll ever be able to convince Grace to risk her heart again. The Doctor’s Dilemma tells the story of Ryan and Grace and the villagers whose lives they touch.

The Doctor’s Dilemma was a finalist in the 2012 Booksellers’ Best Award. (A Published Author’s Contest judged solely by booksellers and librarians for books published in 2011) It finaled in two categories, Best Traditional Romance and Best First Book!
