“What a ride this book was! I can honestly say it was an inspiring novel, and very unique! With a cast of lively, artistic characters and a spin so hard it will leave your eyes wide and jaw hanging until the very last word.” -The Booknatics

“A tour de force.” -BooksChatter

Funny, Smart, Sexy, and very surprising, Permanent Spring Showers is the new literary fiction novel by Scott D. Southard (me), author of A Jane Austen Daydream.

Professor Rebecca Stanley-Wilson is having a very bad season. Her husband has just admitted to having an affair. And it was with one of her students.

Blame it on a desire for revenge (or way too much alcohol), she then has had one of her own. Unfortunately for her, her affair was with one of the great upcoming painters of his generation. The ramifications of that one torrid evening will not only be felt across her life but over the entire art world.

Permanent Spring Showers is the tale of one very memorable springtime and how it impacts a group of unique artists and dreamers. From the writer who is creating a new literary movement (through outright manipulation), to the hopeful Olympian with the failing marriage, to the romantic wondering what he did wrong to drive his love from him, each tale walks the line between reality and fantasy. And waiting at the end of the line is a very important painting.

You can learn more about the book (read articles, excerpts and reviews) via this page on my site. You can enter the giveaway via Goodreads.com, by clicking in the banner below.

Good luck!

Fingers Forever Crossed

So yesterday I got this really cool image in my e-mail….

IMG_4023-1

The picture is from Clare who is the person handling the marketing for my new book Permanent Spring Showers (set to be published in early 2015 by 5 Prince Books).  They are going full in with the book and are hitting many of the bigger book reviewers with a galley copy, like The New York Times in the pic.

I would love it if the New York Times picked up the book and read it. I’m not sure exactly what my chances will be, I’m sure they get drowned in galley copies of new books each day. But this image definitely put a spring in my step yesterday… what can I say? I had to share it. It is just awesome, and for me the stuff that dreams are made of.

I hope to have the release date for the book for you soon. Stay tuned…

Until then... have you entered the book giveaway for my novel My Problem With Doors? Two lucky readers will win an autographed copy of my novel (which was just recently released for the Kindle with an exclusive afterword- here). The competition on GoodReads.com ends on October 28.

Two Book Giveaways! A JANE AUSTEN DAYDREAM and MEGAN

I can’t explain why, but I am a sucker for a sweepstakes or a giveaway. They reason I say sucker is my track record has never been so great. The fates are not kind to this Southard.  The only time I can remember winning anything recently is a few years ago I entered a contest for a family Disney Parks trip. I didn’t win the trip, but I did win an autographed book by Julie Andrews for my daughter. I like Julie Andrews fine (Mary Poppins rules), but it was not exactly something I was going to break into song about. A Jane Austen Daydream

Speaking of autographs and giveaways, unlike me, there is a strong chance you could win something this time. Two of my books are in the midst of a giveaway!

There are only a few days left to enter to win an eBook copy of my novel A Jane Austen Daydream. You can enter this giveaway (and read a really flattering review of the book) via the Bookish website here.

The second giveaway is on Goodreads.com. Two lucky readers will win an autographed copy of my novel Megan! You can enter via the link below.

Blog Tour Day 1: “Top-Notch” Review and Giveaway at Bookish for A JANE AUSTEN DAYDREAM

07e2aa4a-4b20-4d2f-83a5-5e1cfe916944
Today is the first day of the blog tour for A JANE AUSTEN DAYDREAM! 

On bookish.com there are quotes, a book review and even a giveaway for my novel. Here is an excerpt from the very flattering review:

The author brilliantly re-imagines the life of our beloved Jane Austen, weaving in facts, names, dates partly just fiction but some real based on the facts we know of Miss Austen’s short life. He even tucks in quite a few quotes/book references, as to keep us on our toes.

Firstly, the quality of his writing is top-notch. From the opening sentence to the last word, I was captivated.  I felt the author knew where he wanted to take the story and did so in an authoritative as well as engaging way.

Secondly, Scott Southard is an expert at writing in such a fashion as to induce feelings of hate, love, joy, sadness, and righteous fury. I wept, I laughed , I talked back at the characters making foolish decisions, I even rallied against those standing in the way of Jane’s happiness.

You can read the rest of the review here. Also, on that same page, one luck reader can win an eBook copy of A JANE AUSTEN DAYDREAM.  Check it out!
