“I dare you.”

Those words would change adrenaline junkie, Alice Harrison’s life forever. She’s a party girl that doesn’t believe in love until she meets a man that only writes about it.

Seth James escaped his overbearing father and moved into one of the James family’s vacant condos, hoping to create the music he loves in peace. But the fragile calm he’s envisioned shatters when a tiny woman with a world full of energy bounces out of the elevator and nearly takes him out.

With the patience of a saint, Seth seeks the dark that keeps Alice from enjoying life. He challenges her to exorcise the demons in her past in order to discover the true meaning of love. But when the walls fall down, the hidden deceptions will bare the ugly truth about a woman drowning in sorrow and a man who may not know how to be her hero.

Drowning or Sinking? 

Hi everyone, thanks for having me on the blog today! I feel very honored to be here. I’d love to take a moment and talk to you all about what we’re all here for—reading the next great book!

Before I began writing five years ago, I was an avid reader. I promised myself that I wouldn’t ever stop reading and I haven’t. I think I’m at like 150+ books read this year alone. That’s crazy, right? What is it about stories that just keep drawing us back in?

For me, it’s the break I get from being: mom, wife, boss, employee, woman. I can sink into a good book and be just about anything I want to be. I can forget all the worries and the stress of everyday life. That’s a really great feeling, right?

But are you drowning or sinking in a great book? I’ve read some of both. Some drown me in their dark depths, holding onto me and never letting go. And then there are books that just allow me to float for a while until I’m weighted down and I sink. Both are usually a good thing, but one is harsher and a little more aggressive. I’ll let you decide which one you think Drowning is. 

But for your task today…if you’ll tell us the name of the most recent book you felt either had your drowning or sinking and why, you’ll be placed in a drawing for a free ecopy of Drowning.  Good luck and I can’t wait to see what you’ve been reading. 
Rachel Firasek spends her days daydreaming of stories and her nights putting the ideas to ink. She has spent a dull life following the rules, meeting deadlines, and toeing the line, but in her made up worlds, she can let the wild side loose. Her wonderful husband and three children support her love of the written word and only ask for the occasional American Idol or Swamp People quality hour.

She has a philosophy about love. It must devastate or it isn’t truly worth loving. She hopes that you all find your devastating love and cling to it with all your heart!

  1. I love to get lost in the world a book creates and plays out as I read. There is nothing like it. :) I'd rather read then watch a movie.
    Thank you for the giveaways.

    1. I'm the same way. I watch very little TV and usually only shows I'm rabid about. :) Thanks for sharing!
