Confessions of Us
by Alexandra Forry

GENRE:  Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

As a girl, Adaline was left orphaned due to gang violence and to be raised by her grandmother and her parents’ old friend Frank, now following in her parent's footsteps she finds herself at a crossroad in her life of what she wants and what she feels she has a responsibility to do. As soon as Adaline makes the commitment to the mafia however her life becomes riddled with lies, betrayal, lust, and murder. When the one person Adaline always thought she could believe in becomes the one person she can't trust a question begins to pull at Adaline's mind one day will she live through it or will she find herself in an early grave just as her parents did? Adaline is unsure of the answer but will do anything for the possibility of becoming a famous news journalist.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT ONE:

"Hey, my name is Dayton, I came over here to share a drink with you." The man holds out his hand for her to shake.

"I don't share drink with strangers." Adaline says meanwhile turns her face to the other side without thinking about how rude and off-putting it is. Regretting it she looks at him and shakes his hand expecting him to walk away. Cat and Heidi snicker in the background at her awkwardness.

"Ok, so do you mind give me the honor of this dance?" The man raises an eyebrow at her questioning look about whether or not she dances. “Or do you just not dance either?”

“No no, I dance…” Adaline says awkwardly. The snickers from behind her get louder so she shoots them a glare. Demanding silently that they shut up.

"No no, I dance." Adaline says awkwardly. The snickers from behind her get louder, so she shoots them a glare, demanding silently that they shut up.

“So would you?” Dayton asks her once more.

“Would I what?”

"So would you?" Dayton asks her once more. His eyes were full of happiness 

“Would I what?” Adaline asks Dayton on an acute accent.

Cat and Heidi burst out laughing in response to this before coming to Adaline's rescue explaining to the man that she is a little bit awkward in meeting to people. 

"She would love to have a special dance." Cat declares before gently pushing Adaline in Dayton’s direction.

"So is your name pretty like you?" the man says once they get to the dance floor and begin dancing.

“It's Adaline.”

"Adaline, Wow that is a beautiful name as I guess." The man begins to spin her around on the dance floor. They dance for nearly two hours before taking a break to sit in a booth and talk.

GUEST POST:

Describe Your Writing Space

        Hello, I’m Alexandra Forry and today I’m going to describe my writing spaces. With my laptop I can write anywhere I want, out side, inside, out and around the town. But my favorite place to write is in my room on my older desk by the window.

        On my desk right now is my phone, My favored book and a water bottle, of course my laptop with music playing in the background. I always have music playing and I listen all kinds of Music it all depend on what I am writing.

        Above my desk is a Certificate to me for volunteering my time at a high school library back where I use to live. I have fun volunteering there and I am very honored to have this Certificate hanging on my wall.  Below it is my Arc calendar for the month of September. The Arc is a really fun group of people with handicaps like me. We meet twice a week and have a grand old time.

        In my room there is antique dressers and a King size bed with a big flat screen TV! Outside my window is a pool which I enjoy a daily swim and BBQ’s and in the far right of my yard is a big old tree where I enjoy sitting under to think about what to write next in my story.  My house back into a huge frost where a lot wild life can be seen.

        I want to thank Fabulous and Brunette for having me and my wonderful book Confessions of Us here on this wonderful blog today!
