So today is the release day of That One Moment and I’m feeling compelled to get real with you all for a second.
Suicide Ain’t Sexy
Anyone that’s read my previous London Love stories know Hayden Clarke’s tragic story. I’m not giving away any spoilers that you wouldn’t figure out within the first chapter. But to write a romance novel about a subject matter that makes people uncomfortable isn’t sexy!
But you know what is sexy…?
And I love that in all of my books so far, I’ve managed to tell deeply tragic stories about miscarriage, infertility, abuse, jealousy, loss, depression, and even suicide and still managed to find that silver lining that we all crave and strive and dream for.
Love is always sexy…even when it’s in sweat pants while you’re feeding each other Cheetos and binge watching Gilmore Girls. I love the mantra that love conquers all because I believe it. Love can see past all the b/s in life. That is why I love writing romance. No super powers or zombie attacks. It’s just the feels and it’s the connection and it’s the emotional journey we all take everyday to be comfortable in our own skin.
That One Moment is averaging 4.9 stars on Amazon. And that’s a freaking win for me today. I will fly high to my RT Book Conference tomorrow knowing that your love for the journey of a real story is transcending sexy. From the bottom of my tear-greedy soul….thank you.
p.s. This book is still kinda sexy…I mean…because…Hayden. 🙂
