What have you heard about my debut novel Strength From Within?
Revisiting the Past
The year 2017 seems like a century ago. That’s the year that I released my first ever novel on Amazon. Being self-published is a crazy experience! You have all the control, but then again you have all the control and every responsibility falls on you…
I wrote Strength From Within as a collection of short stories surrounding themes of mental health, relationships, and societal pressures:
Mental Illness. Sexuality. Broken Love. All of these topics are things we struggle with daily. In this novel of fifteen short stories, follow the experiences of both men and women as they navigate their personal challenges. Life is complicated with social stigmas and internal battles forming our personalities. From these intricate characters, learn about passion, heartache, laughter, and the endless possibilities that the future holds.
What’s in a Name?
Creating this book was a huge learning experience for me, which is why I want to use these stories and remaster them to create a whole new book with everything new I’ve learned about writing, editing, and publishing.
My plan over the next couple years is to work on this book with the same title, same characters, but there will be key plot changes and new perspectives. I may even add a new bonus story or two! This remastered book will follow the same themes, but I think a higher level of maturity will be brought to the story since I wrote most of those shorts when I was in my teens/early 20s.
Before I start changing everything, I invite you to get to know my characters as they were three years ago. Purchase your copy on Amazon and explore thought-provoking themes. I wrote this book to inspire people and let them know they are never alone in this world. Someone is looking out for them and understands what they are going through.
