A Change of Plans: The Amazing Novel By Donna K. Weaver That's So Good, You Just Have To Hear It!

(For those of you who are visiting for the first time and want to know about the recent cancellation of my novel, read about it here. And by all means, stick around for this post - it's gonna be awesome!)

I don't normally post about contemporary adventure romance - being the sci fi and fantasy guy and all that - but come on ... this is Donna K. Weaver we're talking about. Of course I'm going to shout her work from the rooftops! And if that wasn't awesome enough, Rhemalda has worked with Donna to turn her debut novel into an audiobook.

And if that wasn't even more awesome, she's giving some away!

Here's a little something about A Change of Plans:

When Lyn sets off on her supposedly uncomplicated and unromantic cruise, she never dreams it will include pirates. All the 25-year-old, Colorado high school teacher wants to do is forget that her dead fiancé was a cheating scumbag. Lyn plans a vacation diversion; fate provides Braedon, an intriguing surgeon. She finds herself drawn to him: his gentle humor, his love of music, and even his willingness to let her take him down during morning karate practices. Against the backdrop of the ship's make-believe world and temporary friendships, her emotions come alive.

However, fear is an emotion, too. Unaware of the sensitive waters he's navigating, Braedon moves to take their relationship beyond friendship--on the very anniversary Lyn is on the cruise to forget. Lyn's painful memories are too powerful, and she runs from Braedon and what he has to offer.

It’s hard to avoid someone when stuck on the same ship, and the pair finds themselves on one of the cruise's snorkeling excursions in American Samoa. Paradise turns to piracy when their party is kidnapped and Lyn's fear of a fairytale turns grim. Now she must fight alongside the man she rejected, first for their freedom and then against storms, sharks, and shipwreck.

Congratulations to your work, Donna! I know how long and hard you've worked to make this a reality and I wish you all the best and many readers (and listeners). Have a great weekend, everyone!

I'm David, and modern pirates don't look like Johnny Depp ...


  1. Congratulations on the audio book, Donna! Hope it's a huge success.

  2. Haha That video is hilarious -- and fitting since there's a short but devastating interaction with pirates and a pirate Johnny Depp reference. :D

    Thanks for the shout out, David.

  3. Looking forward to reading this one!

  4. I'm not into romance novels these days, I'm more inclined to mysteries, but this story sounds like a winner. Thanks for a good review, David. Good luck on the audio version, Donna.

  5. I read that and it was awesome! And that's coming from a girl that doesn't read romance.

  6. WOW! Even if I wasn't coming by to give a huge congrats to Donna, and I am, of course,

    (waves Pom Poms in the air, like I just don't care)

    I would definitely be saying thanks to Ms. Weaver (me be polite with black belt lady) for her Army service and Go Navy! :)

  7. Ha Jonny Depp reference. Congrats Donna.

  8. Sounds like a great adventure, Donna. Congrats on the audio book.

  9. I am appalled to hear what happened regarding Fort Cedar to you David, and Michael. But a huge congratulations to Donna on her hard work and success! Love Johnny Depp and his rum :)

  10. Congratulations, Donna! I added your book to my TBR a while back and still haven't read it, but it's on the list and things on the list always get read eventually! :)

  11. Congrats on the audiobook Donna! I haven't had a chance to read your book yet, but it's on my list!

    David, that song is now going to be stuck in my head the rest of the day. :)

  12. Congrats to Donna! This looks like fun.

    I'm late reading the news, so I'll offer commiserations here to you and Michael, David. I hope your book sees the light of day, with a publisher that isn't so prejudiced.
