Book: The Life You’ve Imagined
Author: Kristina Riggle Website: kristinariggle.net
Winner Will Be Announced Above
I met Kristina Riggle at a writer’s conference just as she was getting established as an author. She had gotten her dream agent (this is EVERYBODY’S dream agent, guys!), and her first book was on its way to publication, Real Life & Liars (more on that later). She was sweet and kind and I wish I got to hang out with her more that weekend.
Here’s a snippet on THE LIFE YOU’VE IMAGINED, which is her second novel:
In high school, Cami and Anna were as close as they could be...now, years later, both have returned to their hometown to face the people they had once left behind. Anna must confront her mother, still distraught over the abandonment of her husband, and come to terms with choices she had made years before. While Cami returns home to stay with her alcoholic father, she uncovers a secret he sought to keep which could change her life and salvage her future. They reconnect with their classmate, Amy, who can't understand why achieving the thin body and handsome man of her dreams hasn't given her the happily-ever-after she desired. This is a novel that digs deep and touches the heart of the issues so many women face-the quest for perfection, the hope of love, the value of family and importance of always striving for your dream.
To win THE LIFE YOU’VE IMAGINED, leave me a comment on something you’ve always imagined you’d like to do: Skydiving, painting, sleeping in til noon. Of course, for me, it’s having my novel published (I've got to finish writing it first!). So, get creative and be honest on this one. I can’t wait to hear your answers – what have you always imagined you’d like to do someday?
Kristina also has a third novel coming out this summer, June 28, to be exact. If you’re still sticking around MaNiC then, I will be sure to keep you posted and perhaps there will be a giveaway for that book too! It’s called: THINGS WE DIDN’T SAY (don’t you LOVE the title’s of Kristina’s books?!) Here's a description:
What makes up a family? For Casey it’s sharing a house with her fiancé, Michael, and his three children, whom she intends to nurture better than she ever took care of her self. But Casey’s plans have come undone. Michael’s silences have grown unfathomable and deep. His daughter Angel seethes as only a teenage girl can, while the wide-eyed youngest, Jewel, quietly takes it all in.
Then, son Dylan runs off and the kids’ mother, a woman never afraid to say just what she thinks, noisily barges into the home. That’s when Casey decides that the silences can no longer continue. She must begin speaking the words no one else can say. She’ll have to dig up secrets—including her own—uncovering hurts, and beginning healing that is too long overdue. And it all begins with just a few tentative words…
Kristina digs deep into relationships, and her characters are real and scarred, full of heart, with secrets and worries, and you’ll want to read all three of her books, I guarantee you!
Have you gotten this far into the post? Because if you have, there’s a little surprise for you. When you leave your comment, if you also put RL at the end, I will enter you to win Kristina Riggle’s first book REAL LIFE & LIARS as well because it just so happens I have an extra copy right here in my hot little hands! So, kudos to you for reading through to the end!
