Manitoba Author Takes on Internet Dating in New Novel

ILE DES CHENES, Manitoba (March 11, 2014) – Marianne Curtis, Amazon bestselling author and head writer for the Dawson Trail Dispatch, is thrilled to announce the release of her second full length novel titled A Discreet Betrayal.

“In today’s busy world, more men and women are turning to online dating as a viable option to find a mate than ever before; it is a subject that matters to people,” says Marianne Curtis, author. “Having once belonged to several online dating communities, I drew upon my own personal experiences – and the experiences of my friends – to write A Discreet Betrayal. It is a work of fiction, but there are many true stories buried within.”

            A Discreet Betrayal is a cautionary modern day love story that has readers asking “how  far would you go to discover the truth?” Single magazine journalist, Emma joins an on-  line dating community after failing to find a suitable partner in the “real world”. There she meets Stephan and they hit it off immediately. As the couple make plans for the future,  an anonymous email changes the entire relationship.

            Putting her stellar investigative skills to work, Emma discovers the man of her dreams is  living a double life and nothing was as it seems. With the help of her fellow dating site  companions, Emma untangles a web of lies, and deals with her lover’s shocking betrayal. At the same time, she realizes that true love was right beside her, she was just looking in the wrong direction.

On March 11, 2014 A Discreet Betrayal was released as a paperback and e-book. In the coming weeks it will be available in several stores locally, including McNally Robinson in Winnipeg. It can also be ordered online through the author’s website and various online bookstores including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, ITunes and Sony.

A complimentary downloadable version is available to media upon request for review purposes.

 An official launch event is in the planning stages for April, 2014.
