Gemini Press Books: Our mission is to bring Little Traverse Bay History in the form of Romantic Historical Fiction. The Love Box Trilogy and The Paradise Trilogy is suitable for both the young and young at heart. Our featured authors write stories that did not happen, but could have, and in locations and businesses familiar to locals and visitors. We are ever mindful of preserving history while providing the reader a pleasant trip down memory lane.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Life without limits––being able to escape and be anything I want––go anyplace in the world, possible or impossible.
What do your fans mean to you?
Much of the time it means more to me than I'm willing to admit. You could ask, what does it mean to paint pictures and have a public who likes them? Without an audience, most of us would lack inspiration; we'd be playing to empty seats in sterile auditorium devoid of heart and soul. Does the tree make noise when it falls in the forest if no one is there to hear it? Maybe, but it is not nearly as much fun. Do I love and appreciate fans? Yes, with all of my heart. There is no lack of talent in the world, but there is of fans, people who truly appreciate the work of others. God bless them, and especially those who can find it within themselves to bestow words of kind appreciation.
A SWEET ROMANCE: She thanked him and said goodbye, he did not stand up. Instead, he excused himself—said his back was acting up from sitting so long. God forbid she'd see him bent over like an old man. He didn't feel old. After spending a few hours with such a lovely woman, he was pumped and inspired to go back to the gym and get in shape––find someone again to call his own––a reason to live.
A SWEET ROMANCE: Kate Middleton is a recent graduate from Kendall Art School in Grand Rapids. She’s praying for a break––dreams her photography will someday make her famous. When she gets the chance of a lifetime to assist Grant Goodriche in Harbor Springs, Michigan––she goes for it. And who wouldn't? A Fortune Magazine spread aboard a yacht on Little Traverse Bay doesn't come along every day.
SWEET ROMANCE: Legend had it Native American ghosts stood guard fifty miles either side of Devil’s Elbow on M-119. Whether true or not, since 1968, armed property owners and caretakers were suspicious of trespassers and didn't hesitate to protect their families and pricey retreats. Between them and the redneck militia’s watchful eye, the area was once again considered safe. But was it really?
SWEET ROMANCE: This Paradise 3 Romantic Travel Fiction takes place in two beautiful resort areas: Northern Michigan and California. Follow Kate to meet her friend Picasso only to have that romantic encounter interrupted by an Earthquake. As one Goodreads Reviewer said: "G.G.'s romance and passionate prose makes you feels as if you are there."

It’s great to read a story that feels like we just walked into grandma's for Thanksgiving dinner. Not just any old place, but up in Northern Michigan––where the author’s characters talk like us when they let their hair down. Btw, we here at Gemini Press, are only part way through––we intend to take it slow––savor it until the end. It’s so delicious! (Now if we can get the author to meet Gigi Galt's cast of characters from "Love Boxes" we’ll all have a get together for a down-home party! Kalkaska? Cadillac? Norwood? Traverse City? Charlevoix, East Jordan, Petoskey? They’d all be good!) Thanks to the author for this delightful story.

Btw, we here at Gemini Press, are only part way through––we're going to take it slow––savor it until the end.
Now if we can somehow get the author’s characters to meet Gigi Galt's cast of characters from "Love Boxes” we could have a big get together for a down-home party! Kalkaska? Cadillac? Norwood? Traverse City? Charlevoix, East Jordan, Petoskey? They’d all be good! Thanks to the author for this intriguing and delightful story.

Okay. I just now found this book. By accident. How lucky can you get? I immediately went to the "Michigan Story" and was delighted to see it took place near Harbor Springs. I intended to read only a few paragraphs and return to it when I was awake. Well, let me tell you, the story did that! I couldn’t stop reading. Great writing. I highly recommend it. Thanks to the author(s). Hope we meet someday at a book signing!
