Everythig I Couldn’t Tell My Mother

My new novel, Everything I Couldn’t Tell My Mother, is set to be released next month. It’s a coming-of-age story for any woman who has ever questioned her sexual maturity and readiness, stayed silent at a time when she should’ve spoken up or accepted treatment that was less than what she deserved.

In celebration of its debut I am having a book launch and YOU’RE INVITED! I would be honored to have you as my guest. You don’t want to miss this special event because all attendees will receive a free hardcopy of Everything I Couldn’t Tell My Mother, plus you have a chance to win a Kindle device and one of several cash prizes to help fund your dream. In the past 4 years, I have put everything I’ve got into making my own dream become a reality so this event is really to say thank you for the love and support.

I created Everything I Couldn’t Tell My Mother, first and foremost, to help build a stronger relationship with my mother; one filled with passion, love and vulnerability. I also wrote it to start the healing process of a series of experiences I endured in my past that I have been trying to mentally and emotionally overcome for many years. One of the most surprising things I’ve learned in creating this book is that I can be anything and everything I want to be. I wanted to write a book, I did it. I wanted to open up to my mother, I did it. I wanted to begin my healing process, I am. This journey has been both challenging and emotional, but well worth it.

People often ask, why I am so candid about my past. Why do I open up about what some would call my “dirty little secrets”? It’s because for a long time I wasn’t where I wanted to be. I made excuses instead of adjustments. I wasn’t being true to myself and placed too much focus on limiting beliefs. But since being open and honest about my struggle, I’ve tapped into my full potential.

If you press play below, you can watch the official book trailer for Everything I Couldn’t Tell My Mother. I sat down with 3 girlfriends to discuss the relationship with our mothers, the best kept secrets she doesn’t know and how these challenges have developed us as women.

 

Peace & Love,
