Who is Figure Eight?



Cover by Cover Couture 
Figure Eight was published almost two weeks ago and my nerves are just now getting under control.

I want to think EVERYONE— whether you're a reader or a blogger,  THANK YOU for spreading the word. I know that I tackle a subject that can be controversial, and so it mean so much that you've all given Selah's story a chance.

The last time I was this anxious about a book was with Unravel. While that story wasn't my truth, I knew that there was someone out there that experienced Naomi's trauma. It needed to be written. Good and bad.

Figure Eight is based off a true story in my family. Something that I've thought about quite a few times as the years have gone by. Especially in the past year while I was fighting my own demons.

I won't go into details because if I do then I'll spoil the whole book for you. :)

It was incredibly catharic to write Figure Eight. Selah's story was created in early 2015. She was flawed and broken and I've always found that fascinating thing because we all are in alot of ways. But we don't become that over night. Something or someone—and sometimes our own decisions—create those flaws. As the story progressed, I quickly realized that I was becoming emotionally invested. A writer does with every character but I found myself relating with Selah on many levels.

When I reached the end it felt like a giant weight was lifted off my chest and I could finally take a deep breath. It was right around then that I realized that was able to incorporate a piece of my truth in the story. I know that the underlining meaning of Figure Eight is going to be hard for some people. They might believe it's not necessary. But I do.

If you give Figure Eight a chance, go into the story blind. Nothing, and I mean nothing, is as it seems.
