BURLINGTON, Mass. - April 16, 2013 - PRLog -- Contemporary and paranormal romance author Lynn Ricci self-published her debut novel, The Dating Intervention, in August 2012. The Dating Intervention was initially available in paperback and only available online through Amazon but has now expanded to a wider online network of distributors including Barnes & Nobel Nook, Kobo, Sony, Apple, Diesel and others. This expansion has helped Ricci achieve her first year goals and obtain placement in Book Ends (, a local Indie bookstore in Winchester, MA for all three works: The Dating Intervention, her beauty and the beast tale Cursed, and Signs~A Collection of Short Stories.

“Writing a book is a time-consuming, challenging process but once done, the work really begins with editing, perfecting, and then marketing the book,” stated author Lynn Ricci. “Overall it has been a very rewarding experience and I am thrilled when I know a reader enjoys the story.”

Ricci turned to social media, engaging with readers online to help build word of mouth and expand her readership.  Recently, Ricci added a blog that has been gaining traction and a book trailer ( created by Lauren Barnak of Barnak Designs ( which was another tool that helped her to reach her one year goal – four months early.

The Dating Intervention is a novel that entwines heartbreak and humor in a contemporary tale of lost love and second chances ~ Vanessa had it all: handsome husband, two beautiful children, a lovely home, and a successful career. She was living the dream life she and her friends fantasized about as girls over hot fudge sundaes…but that all ended when her husband mis-dialed his phone. Leaving the life she knew behind was difficult enough, but when Vanessa’s attempt at love with someone from her past falls apart, her well-meaning friends decide an intervention is in order. They quickly discover, however, that the dating pool has become a puddle with each blind date crazier than the one before.
