Life is like a book
Some sad, some happy, some exciting
If you never turn a page,
You will never know what the next chapter holds.
My niece posted this on her facebook page. I don't know who wrote it, but I love it. As we travel through life, we have to experience a myriad of emotions, and hopefully, at day's end, it will be worth it. As an author, all of these things are needed to make my stories interesting and keep the readers involved. Sometimes we have to struggle to accomplish that, but don't you agree it takes all types of emotions to keep you reading?
In my newest book, You Complete Me, my heroine, Whitney, has had to overcome some really sad things - loss of a child, a terrible divorce, tension with her mother. Life is hard to juggle all these types of things, and I've tried to put her emotional pull in this story.
My hero, Dante, has lost his wife and is struggling to make a new home for his son. His son, Jeffry, misses his mother and is trying hard to understand what has happened. We can all understand these types of things, right?
When Whitney and Dante reunite, there's happiness and excitement, new feelings, and love. What they have to overcome becomes a struggle. Okay, I won't tell you more, but I hope you'll check out my newest book on October 4 -- You Complete Me.
You Complete Me will be available in all e-book formats through Bookstrand.com and I hope as you read, it will make you want to keep turning the pages to find out what the next chapter holds.
