Author Update: The Marshall Plan

As some of you may know, in addition to reviewing books and discussing literary topics, I also write and self-publish works of fiction. I won’t spend much time plugging my own works here – this blog was created to showcase the talent of others – but I wanted to let you know what’s happening on the author side of things.


Molly Marshall is fresh out of grad school, armed with a shiny new degree in journalism and ready to take over the world. There’s just one little problem: no one seems to care.

Six months have passed since graduation and no matter how hard she tries, she can’t find a paying job in the field she’s spent years preparing to dominate. She’s saddled with a massive amount of student loan debt, plagued by family drama, and stuck in a dead-end job she despises. As if that weren’t enough, her relationship with Gavin, her dreamy genius fiance, is more fizzle than sizzle these days. One can hardly blame Molly for questioning everything she’s been told about the real world. 

Just when her prospects seem completely hopeless, an unthinkable opportunity arises and Molly is forced to make a choice. What will it be: her ambition, or her heart?

This stand alone spin-off of Ard’s debut novel THE PARTITION OF AFRICA invites you to examine your thoughts on family, ambition, and the nature of love itself. 


Once my editor and beta readers help me put the finishing touches on the manuscript, The Marshall Plan will be available for purchase through Amazon. Until then, you can find my first book, The Partition of Africa, here.



Olivia Ard is the author of women's fiction trilogy The Bennett Series and Readers' Favorite 5-Star recipient 'Tis the Season. She is pursuing a second degree in sociology. She and her husband JD live in Central Alabama, where they await their miracle baby's arrival this November with joyful expectation.
