Pay it forward.

GRAVY

  • My first novel started with a mole. Yes, a MOLE - a freckle, a birthmark, whatever you want to call it.
  • I was at the pool with my daughter getting ignored by our swim instructor when a lifeguard with a particularly ripped abdomen walked by. He stopped to flirt with one of the female lifeguards and my eyes flew directly to an adorable mole on the top can of his six-pack.
  • "How cute!" I thought (among other things). "He looks like a character in a romance novel!"
  • So I went home and started writing fiction for the first time. That was over a year ago and I still haven't been able to stop. GRAVY is the story of a suburban housewife who wants another baby, but gets a man with a mole instead.
  • GRAVY is now available on Kindle and Nook!

No bitching. Thanks for the update.
Amen!

Great update. However intrigued about your parents. I am also a survivor of child abuse and attend therapy with others. None of us would ever go spend time (happily) (unhappily maybe) with your parents. What's the deal? Genuinely interested after everything you revealed about them. No judgement here!!!

Did I miss info about the history with Manda's parents? I don't recall seeing anything that would prevent her from having a healthy, happy, adult relationship with them.

I've gained 10 pounds too! But life has been so good, that it's really more proof of life. Way to go for living, Manda.

Amanda. For serious. All the Tweets & FB posts... you struggle paying bills, don't pay car insurance or registration (AND COMPLAIN ABOUT BEING "LET OFF EASY") but you're going to go blow some more money on tattoos? And buy new running shoes? What gives????

Amanda P. Westmont


Gift certificate for the shoes (AND FUCK YOU! Running is for my mental health and if that requires shoes, I'm going to buy them no matter how poor I get). My boyfriend paid for the tattoos. 

BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT. Best investment ever.

Kacey

Did he? Awhile back you got a tax refund and instead of saving it for things like car insurance, you got yourself a tattoo and paid for tattoos for others. Just sayin'.
