The headline says it all. My novel, Leaving the Beach is on $.99 promo today. I hope you’ll check it out.
What’s the book about? In a nutshell, it’s the story of a bulimic woman named Erin who truly believes it’s her destiny to become the soul mate of a rock icon. Which rock icon? Well, that changes throughout the book, as Erin grows older and her tastes and circumstances change.
But one evening–in Cambridge, Massachusetts–Erin has a random, one-on-one encounter with a bona fide rock star. The two exchange only a few words, but the course of Erin’s life is forever altered.
“The book gracefully grapples with several important issues, including alcohol and drug addiction, loss, grief and sexuality. It also offers a unique look at an eating disorder from the sufferer’s perspective, describing bulimia frankly and graphically. However, there are also many entertaining pop-culture references to offset the weighty themes. Music lovers, in particular, will appreciate the very specific rock trivia that the author cleverly provides throughout the story….An intriguing novel that looks at the ways that people cope with the pain in their lives.” —Kirkus Reviews
