I feel like no one sees my blog. How can i get noticed? I don't understand. Maybe no one likes my book. That would be ok if i actually knew who did and didn't like it. I don't know that I'm good enough to be a writer maybe i don't think outside the box enough. Maybe I am just doing what everyone else is doing. Lately I've been thinking that I've hit the peak of my accomplishments and that now I have to live in reality just like everyone else. Why should I dream if I'm not going to realize the dream the right way. I should've just done what every other Black girl from Detroit did. Hair and Nails If I would've went to school for that instead of English I probably would've known if people liked what i did. and I probably would have a job and maybe I wouldn't have to work 12 hours in a factory if i did. smh. Why didn't I learn how to braid? Why didn't I?
I don't know why I'm sulking. I guess it's cause what i've accomplish i'm sure my family is proud of but why do they have to continue to act as if i didn't accomplish anything... smh. I'm a 21 year old Black Female No kids and Single. I'm in school for English: Creative Writing at CMU This will be my fourth year. I have a job there. It doesn't pay much but it's enough for me to save and It's not like I can't try to find another job there. I'm not super ambitious about anything but there are alot of things that i want to learn regardless of if they are in my career plans. Money isn't everything to me. That comes along and goes quicker than that. I'm trying to avoid having a family to take care of until I am able to take good care of myself and I haven't reached that point so why do i have to work super hard doing something I hate vs something that I love. I barely have that much time to do it to just sit there and think about the next sentence in my story. It's not like writing is just a cake walk. Nothing is. It takes hard work and dedication to do these things. But no one sees it that way but me i guess. sigh. I guess it's a good thing no one reads my blog. I could never see myself giving up on my dream no matter what. I want to become a great writer and have people love what I regardless of if it made money like that or not. I hate that money and loads of it is whhhatw hat we as people have to acheive before we've accomplished something... smh. Whatever i'm just gonna keep doing what i'm doing

It's really hard to advertise a book especially when no one looks at your blog or pages or anything. 

But I will get over it and keep spreading the word about my first published book. I'm really proud of trying to put myself out there even though I'm scared that people wont like my work. It's too late to turn back and I wont be anytime soon!

A Little Bit of Detail

I'm trying not to give detail about the book since it's so short but only for the people who view the blog. :) 

Lies of Pure Love is a romance novel or more like a novel about unrequited love. This novel is actually the introduction of the story idea for Kyle and Lina. The story is in no way complete and eventually I hopefully will be giving people more additions to the story in the coming future. I believe that as the story goes on people will like it more than starting off. 

In any case, Lies of Pure Love is about Kyle and Lina's relationship to one another. In this particular story Kyle is thinking back on instances of the the dysfunctional friendship he and his love has. Though she's barely mentioned Kyle also has a pretty long history with his second love Kelley. She's a high school girlfriend as soon as Lina is out of the picture. Their relationship takes them through college until Lina reenters the picture. Lina is a big time liar and Kyle hasn't quite uncovered why she buries herself deep in lies from wigs, makeup, and an usual style to occupation and lifestyle but he does have an idea.

Where the title came from!

Lies of Pure Love wasn't the original title of this story. My very first title was Hidden in Lies. This story was originally an assignment for my English class in high school spawned from our pet peeves. Mine being liars. In any case, I decided to go off to college to learn more about writing and how to do it well. In college I learned quite a bit and was able to receive feedback on this story and also create new stories and poems. My first year in college this was the only story I had really written aside from my play that I had to rewrite (but that's another story). I finished the story making it a whopping 19 typed single spaced pages. I ended the story. My second year of college I ended up using the story for another class. I called it Hidden in Fear. The difference between Hidden in Lies and Hidden in Fear was that HIL was going to be from the female main character's prospective and HIF was from the Male main character's prospective. I also made a second addition to the story that takes place after all the events in the original story. This particular story is just the more compact version of the story as a whole. The final title, Lies of Pure Love, come from a friend. She helped me with this title because Hidden in Fear and Hidden in Lies are already titles use for other books. I had many title choices along with this one. This one just seemed more appealing.

Lies of Pure Love

Lies of Pure Love is the first book I ever published and I'm so excited about it! It's feels great to have accomplished some of my dream. Now that I know I can do this there's no time for hesitation! I'm completely motivated to get this out there! Eventually my first book will become a series and I'll be creating new stories, long and short, to give to future fans of my work. I'm very humble to have the opportunity to go somewhere with my writing! I honestly did not believe my dream could take of so early in my life but i am happy that is has. It's bringing me all new experiences. I know this year is going to be wonderful! So future fans out there I'm glad to have you and that you'll have me. Thank you!
