Jade Wrey-personal assistant, social media coordinator, and best friend to popstar musician Krystal Wreck-didn’t intend to lie about her identity. She just forgot that Krystal’s name was in the automatic signature when the email exchange with LaRue Livingston became a welcome interruption in her dry, professional life. For the next six weeks, she intends to focus on rebuilding Krystal’s reputation, especially since her idea is the agency for the hopeful rebound. But, LaRue keeps distracting her, and all the words she buries threaten to come to the surface, shredding the façade Jade first created for survival.
Five lyricists compete for a co-writing spot on Krystal Wreck’s next album, and because of his sister’s covert entry on his behalf, LaRue Livingston is one of them. LaRue’s not naturally a person to demand a spotlight from the world, but his sister urged him to “live it up” before he left. Since he’s the reason she’s in a wheelchair, he agreed. But, LaRue is already off to a bad beginning. After an email conversation with Krystal and seeing her face-to-face, LaRue can’t deny his developing feelings for the musician, and he’s pretty sure falling for her will only get in the way of winning it all.

In the Think Tank
Though this book will not be titled Water Novel, water is totally in it and it will be a novel. I’ve been dreaming about these characters for years. It’s almost through percolating, and I’m excited about finally writing it! (I wish I could put a happy dance gif here, but it will mess up my aesthetics.)
Charles Bukowski said, “Poetry is what happens when nothing else can.”
I feel you, Bukowski.
I can only muster a few finger twitches during tough life moments. I find solace in those spasms, and sometimes, they even form book-like shapes. The contents of this book are bone-deep, and provide an insight into my life that I’m not always comfortable sharing. But that’s where you come in. The vulnerability is worth it if you find communion with a fellow fighter, company in the dark times, and courage to deal.
