I’ve been as asked to write a piece about my book, Please Don’t Leave Me Here — something that will interest people in buying.
I thought I’d start by making a list of the themes (aside from murder):
- drug abuse
- mental illness
- police corruption
- domestic violence
- the sex industry
- teen pregnancy
Oh, God, how do I make that sound appealing? It’s also funny in some parts (really!) Maybe I should try another angle?
My book, Please Don’t Leave Me Here, is like Frozen (the Disney film):
- My protagonist, Brigitte, wrestling a dark secret from her shady past, protects herself by creating a metaphoric ice castle from alcohol and prescription medication.
- When her secret is revealed she has to ‘Let it go’.
- In the end true love is not who you think.
Hmm. Maybe I should just write about process?
