     “The Cyber Miracles” sequel was put on hold for January as I decided (insanely) to compete in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. Specifics in the rules said that “TCM” was not eligible, and I thought the sequel so far is dependent on the original story. That left me with the task of writing something new. I did it in a month!
     My entry in ABNA is called “The Terminal Diner.” Just as in “TCM,” this novel also takes place in Binghamton, N.Y. It tells the tale of a pie baker at a diner near the airport who meets three people there on the day before 9/11 who will all have a profound effect on her life. I find out March 16 if I’ve made it through to the second round. Watch this spot for more info. Should I be fortunate to win (or place in the top four), there’s a great chance of getting a book deal with Penguin Books. Mamma Mia!
     So, as I pray for a cyber miracle of my own, it’s back to writing the sequel. Now Fergal, as you were just saying…

About the book

Maeve Kenny's life was going exactly as she'd planned. At 30 she was dating a soap opera star and had an exciting public relations career with an Irish-owned firm in Manhattan. Then three sudden events turned everything upside down, and Maeve found herself fleeing her Queens apartment for sanctuary back home upstate in Binghamton. As she tries to readjust to the dramatic changes in her life, Maeve says she needs a miracle to turn her life around. Who would have thought the whole world would be watching when it happens?
