Misty Simon is our guest…a mystery writer for a change! She’s introducing her new novel, LIV AND BREATHE, and offering one free copy to a commenter.
Hello, blog readers!
When I think of things I’m thankful for, I can honestly say that the number is huge and I don’t really know where to start. But I’ll try…
I’m so thankful for the community of readers and authors I am a part of. The boosting, the love, the support and the friendships I have formed are such a huge part of my every day world. I adore the people I have met through writing and the chance to celebrate other people’s successes with them. To be on this journey with such amazing men and women makes the ride so much more than I thought it could be. There are tears of joy and sadness, laughing at the small things and in the face of the scary ones. Coming together to make the world a better place one page at a time, one reader at a time.
Life can knock you down but in the end it’s up to you what you do with that setback. Sometimes you just have to find the right perspective and make it into a positive.
Here’s my philosophy:
There will be a silver lining, even if you have to draw it with your own crayon!
Misty Simon…Knows Whodunnit
On that note I was very keen to write Liv and Breathe. It’s a story I started about sixteen years ago when my then two year old was taking a bath. I wanted to write a woman who had nothing when she was little and ended up with everything she wanted but with some strings attached that she couldn’t avoid. And when those strings got pulled what would she do to save her dream, her oasis, and the life she’d created from the ashes of the past?
And so Liv came to life. She’s feisty and smart and driven. But I had to put her up against someone who had those same qualities to challenge her and make her think and perhaps see that compromise or even just embracing what has happened instead of trying to force what you want to happen can make all the difference. I think Alex is up to the challenge and hope you will enjoy the journey they take together to make a life together out of the broken pieces they’ve been handed.

There you go! Thanks for stopping by, Janet.
Thanks so much! Sorry I couldn’t get here earlier but thanks for reading!
I like your attitude, Misty Simon, and something tells me your heroine Liv has some sass to her too. I also agree w/ Miss Janet — mystery? romance? — SCORE!
Thanks, Jane. (:
