S.K. Derban’s third novel Circumvent acquired by TouchPoint Press

“Life is too perfect, until perfection turns to panic.”

SAN DIEGO, CA (February 9, 2017) No stranger to the TouchPoint Press family of authors, S.K. Derban’s third novel is the second to be acquired by the growing indie publisher.

When French-born Nikki Sabine Moueix travels to Hawaii for a work assignment, writing an article about a famous Swiss pastry chef Ruggiero Delemont generates more than a magazine piece when Nikki becomes Mrs. Delemont. Another assignment sends Nikki to France where she is catapulted into a threatening confrontation leaving her in a French hospital with no knowledge of her past.

Circumvent allows readers to form a bond with Nikki as they yearn for her to remember. They will cheer for Ruggiero, the Swiss pastry chef, and his relentless determination to locate his beloved wife. This is a story about two people who never lose their faith in God and find amazing friends to help them along the way.

Derban’s third novel is slated for a Fall 2017 release and will be available through major retailers and direct from the publisher.

Advance media and review requests may be submitted to media@touchpointpress.com.
