My dear friend and critique partner, AR Rivera, is re-releasing her romantic suspense novel, Between Octobers. Why re-release, you ask?

A small indie press snatched her up and the book was doing wonderfully, but the publisher had to shut down. Devastating, right?

Well, not for this author. AR Rivera saw the opportunity to make the book better. She updated the manuscript, and although the first cover was beautiful, it really didn’t match the dark, edginess of the story.

So, here is the new cover. Ta-da!

Between Octobers by AR Rivera

Moments are powerful. Just one can destroy everything.


Happy endings have often eluded Grace Zuniga. Now, as she finds herself facing down deadly trouble, she is hoping and praying the pattern will change.

When Grace wakes up in a dark, confined space with no memory of how she got there, the fear is nearly crippling. There are two thoughts keeping her from losing her head. First, her children: she is all they have left after losing their father. They need her to survive. Though Grace is not sure she can, she’s determined to try. Second, figuring out who took her and how she ended up, trapped, alone, and at the mercy of a person who will do anything to keep her from escaping.

Stumbling through these bleak circumstances, Grace’s mind wanders over the last life-changing year, from one October to the next. She relives the most precious and heart-rending moments that led to her kidnapping.

The previous October, when Grace stepped inside an elevator and into the life of enigmatic actor Rhys Matthews, it all began. But Grace must ask herself, “How will it end?”

A.R. Rivera loves to read, write, and talk. She does all of it, at every opportunity. Sometimes simultaneously. She also writes about people with lives much more interesting than her own and blogs about the difficulties of said writing, as well as making up flash fiction and other junk.

She’s also a mom to four amazing boys (three of which are in a rock band), a wife to the greatest husband in the world, a daughter to two super parents, a baby sister to three siblings, an aunt to more nieces and nephews than she can count, as well as a self-professed weirdo, couch potato, and people-watcher.

She’s currently hard at work on her first YA endeavor, Countdown to Chaos, which will be releasing in 2015. She’s also got a mind-bending Sci-Fi trilogy in the works that she’s very excited about.


Not only is she a promising writer, she is a sweet person with a witty sense of humor. Be sure to connect with her and check out the sleek new version of Between Octobers.
