The Road To The Release of My Debut Novel by Kara Isaac

Today is the (Northern Hemisphere) release day for my debut novel, Close To You. I thought it might be fun to share with you a short YouTube clip I did on the book talking about my journey to publication. Hope you enjoy!

Kara Isaac lives in Wellington, New Zealand. Her debut romantic comedy, Close To You, is about a disillusioned academic-turned-tour-guide and an entrepreneur who knows nothing about Tolkien who fall in love on a Tolkien themed tour of New Zealand. It just releases (argh!) from Howard Books. When she's not working her day job as a public servant, chasing around a ninja preschooler and his feisty toddler sister, she spends her time writing horribly bad first drafts and wishing you could get Double Stuf Oreos in New Zealand. You can sign up for her newsletter on her website or connect with her on Facebook at Kara Isaac - Writer (where there's lots of giveaways happening this week to celebrate!)


  1. Well done, Kara--with both the video and your books! This must be a wonderful time for you, after working hard at writing all those years, to see your first book published and have another coming soon. Congratulations again!

  2. Congratulations, Kara. What a fabulous moment for you. I received the Amazon notice informing me my pre-order will arrive in 2 weeks.

    Enjoy this special moment. The video(s) are a great idea.

  3. Hi Kara - gotta say I'm loving your book already and I'm only up to chapter seven. Especially loved your description of landing at Wellington airport, lol. (It's not called Wild at Heart for nothing, is it?) Can't wait to get into the rest of it. Loved hearing about your writing journey. Next time I'm over I'll do my best to get down your way and get a signed print copy off you! Well done, and congratulations.

  4. Congrats Kara! I'm thrilled for you and so excited to see your debut book has finally released. Yay for Christian fiction set in NZ! Enjoy celebrating and I can't wait to read it :)
