November seems like a good month for a promotion, so with that in mind my recently published memoir It’s Not You, It’s Me will be free for three days starting tomorrow. (Nov. 10–12) And just so it won’t be lonely, my LGBT historical novel Time of Grace will be available for 99 cents on all platforms for a limited time.
New site PeopleReads will be featuring It’s Not You, It’s Me in their freebie spotlight on Nov. 12!
This perceptive 5-star Amazon review expresses exactly what I wanted to achieve with “It’s Not You, It’s Me”:
“It’s Not You, It’s Me” follows the raw, exciting, and painful trajectory of a “wrong” relationship. We’ve all been there.
West slowly and deliberately lets us walk with her down this path, knowing things will end poorly but hoping we are mistaken. All the allure and insecurities of a new relationship are present at the beginning of West’s relationship with Eileen. We nod our heads in agreement as West struggles with nagging doubt. But we second-guess with her as she wonders if it’s just the regular dance of two people revealing their true selves while the projections fall off.
West courageously exposes her own vulnerabilities as we see the synergy of two people who probably shouldn’t be together. It’s an energy that is hard to break and impossible to endure. Yet, as West demonstrates, the end, while painful, has the potential to bring more knowledge of self and more commitment to follow one’s own path. Well done.
