Friends, It is my sincere Honor to be able once again to host the Blog Tour of the Amazing Mother, Author and Awesome Friend, Nonnie Jules! This is her SECOND Book of this YEAR, and she is showing her amazing versatility with her first published fiction. A Wonderful, Giving and Helpful Friend, Get To Know Nonnie Jules!
Hi and thank you all for joining me once again here at LuckyLifeLessons! This is my third blog tour but it is my second time sharing with Lance’s readers and I am so grateful for this opportunity once again. Lance is a dear friend of mine and has wonderful messages to share with the world, but him allowing me to stand in on his blog for a day just goes to show how wonderfully awesome he is in supporting others.
I am Nonnie Jules, wife, mother, loyal friend and up and coming author. If most of you remember, the first time I was here I was promoting “THE GOOD MOMMIES’ GUIDE TO RAISING (ALMOST) PERFECT DAUGHTERS,” 100 Tips To Raising (Almost) Perfect Daughters Everyone Can’t Help But Love! I’m happy to say that the book is doing well on its own merit and now sits on the shelves of select B&N stores. I feel so blessed! Have you read it yet?
Today I’m here promoting my second book/first novel, “DAYDREAM’S DAUGHTER, NIGHTMARE’S FRIEND” which was originally scheduled for release on 8/22/13 but since life has stepped in and said otherwise, it’s now slated for an 8/31 or 9/1/13 release, so please stay tuned.
Here’s the Blurb:
Marisa was a good girl, until someone made her mad. Living in hell with her mother and step-father was all but a daily struggle for her survival. When Marisa can’t stand the abuse any longer, she snaps and does the unthinkable! Will she be able to survive leaving one hell being forced into another? Will the man she married be able to understand and forgive? Stay tuned for the bumpy ride that is “DAYDREAM’S DAUGHTER, NIGHTMARE’S FRIEND”.
And a brief Excerpt:
“Friday nights always brought about a sense of relief for Marisa. Most often, she would go and either spend the night with her best friend Charlotte, or her grandfather, Papa J, would pick her up for a weekend at her grandma Dea’s. How she loved spending time with her grandma…her own personal savior from the mama from hell she lived with. Marisa and her grandmother were just so much alike, too. They both liked to talk and they both enjoyed coffee. On Saturday mornings, although Marisa’s grandmother no longer drove long distances, the two of them would climb into her grandpa’s old Chevy pickup and make the two block trek to visit grandma Dea’s sister. Aunt Mare was a character and she was the total opposite of grandma Dea. She was loud, she cussed, she drank and at her age, she loved to party. But there was something very confusing about Aunt Mare to Marisa. Aunt Mare was married to a Pastor and she behaved like Jezebel! Marisa used to think it funny how Aunt Mare was her mama’s favorite aunt, but she soon began to realize why: they had the very same behaviors, with the exception of it being very obvious that Aunt Mare loved ALL her daughters.
Saturday mornings like this were such a reprieve for Marisa from the chaos of Saturday mornings at her house, where there was no smell of coffee, there were no good morning hugs or kisses and there surely was no family congregating to eat breakfast. It was pure dysfunction at its finest, which is why Marisa cherished her weekends away. No matter where, she was just glad she didn’t have to be in that house.
Marisa hadn’t told her grandmother what was happening to her at home. She knew that if she did, all hell would break loose between her mom and her grandma. So, she kept quiet and when Dea asked how things were at home. she smiled and just responded “They’re fine, Dea.”
