Beautiful Liar Teaser

This unedited and subject to change in the final copy Comments are welcome..

Beautiful Liar



It was so hard at first not to reach out to him, to send one reply, hell just to say anything at all. When I lost Brody it was like losing half of my heart.
Marla is right though I have held onto hope that someday fate would cross our paths again, and he would forgive me. I have typed him the same email a hundred times. The first line is always the same, with me answering the one question he always asks at the end of each message he sends.
Brody: How do you keep on going on with your life?  Because I can't, I live in the space between yesterday and today. Darby, I live in my dreams with you.
Me:  I hold onto hope that one day all the stars will align and you will become mine once more. That’s what has kept me going Brody, the promise of you….
But every time I hit delete, I can’t ever bring myself to do it. I should have deactivated my email long ago, but it is almost like a drug for me, my very own Brody fix.

My Adventure in Self-publishing

  So yesterday I went live on Amazon with Beautiful Strangers and I am so excited and nervous!
It was a bit of trial and error as I am learning as I go. Let me just say it is a lot more work than I ever imagined. Formatting and designing my cover was a challenge but I had so much fun doing it. It took me three tries to get my cover accepted but hey I did it, and on my own I might add!.
  It was also very surreal to me that my book was approved on the 11 year anniversary of my fathers death. I feel like he is smiling down on me this week and encouraging me to push forward. Formatting a book for paperback and e book is so different, I had no idea! It took a lot of research on my part to figure it all out, but hey if I can do it, you can too!
  I know that there will be some harsh critics along the way but I wanted to write a story that would piss the reader off, because I myself love when a book challenges me and takes me out of my comfort zone. I know a thick skin is needed when putting yourself out there to be critiqued and judged by the world.I may update this post later as I am only in day two of selling my book. A huge thank you to all my supporters, who encourage and inspire me to keep writing!
