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!

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.
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.
