No, it's not another Taylor Swift song.
It's a brand new Marian Moyer book.
Add it to your Christmas wish list because the targeted release date is 12.23.17.
Desperate for a synopsis? I thought you might be.
Even though Marian Moyer still loves solving a good mystery, she’s determined to focus more of her energy on her magazine—and less time getting herself into trouble.
So when a high-profile murder occurs and her husband takes the case, Marian is determined to stay out of it.
But when the routine questioning of a suspect turns violent for someone she loves, Marian is determined to solve the case. Before anyone else gets hurt.
Self doubt feels like a constant presence, doesn't it? I mean it. Is. EVERYWHERE!
Like when you want to try a new hobby and that little voice tells you, you won't be any good at it. Or when you're finally given that big project at work—offered a chance to show your boss your stuff—there's a little voice in your head that likes to ruin it for you.
And there's a whole slew of things that voice/your brain can pick from, isn't there? Like that one time, in fifth grade, when you totally froze while you gave your first speech. Or that other time, at your first job, when you totally screwed up the register and your boss had to come bail you out in front of customers. You're just a constant failure, aren't you?
There are very few writing assignments that make me shudder. Since the age of five, I’ve written short stories, newspaper columns, magazine articles, ad copy, photo captions and more. Despite this, I’m constantly a student. Frankly, you could master every rule in the English language but be a terrible writer. In my opinion, it isn’t how well you understand a language – it’s about continuously challenging yourself to use it differently.
