Last week I posted about bullying, because the aftermath of being bullied is a big part of my new book: the way that abusive treatment affects people's minds and relationships long afterward.
main character is not just a victim; she's a survivor. She has friends,
and a possible love interest. She likes hiking, and she and her best
friend try to hike up a few mountains.
Not at all coincidentally,
I like to hike myself. And I did borrow a few incidents from my
real-life hikes for the book--for example, a certain rattlesnake (who
probably had no idea s/he would end up in a book someday); a rainstorm;
and a summit so windy I couldn't stand up.
Anyway, I'll stop
talking about this book now, because as of today you can read it for
yourself, if you're so inclined. It is now officially Out In the World!
And thank you for celebrating with me. :-)
