Win a DSP ebook

June 15, 2015

For those people who have read my work, you’ve probably noticed I usually have a lot of people whirling around my main characters, people who love them, are too hard on them, or are outright threats. This story is no exception. I believe the people we surround ourselves with can feed who we are, for good or bad.

It’s no different for my main characters. Lonnie has a mentor in Prof. Elosie Bink, supportive (for the most part) parents in Arthur and Ginger, a loving twin sister in Amber, and a scoundrel of an ex in Jerry Pool. Jamison has his struggling mother, Alanna, his understanding Aunt Jo, his boss, Lincoln, his best friend, Torpedo, and those folks from his old neighborhood who don’t know his secret.

They’ll both meet new people along the way: some will help, some will hinder. Such is life.

Who is someone in your life who has made you a better/stronger person? Comment below for a chance to win an ebook copy of the DSP book of your choice. I’ll draw a name at random on Wednesday, June 17. Good luck!

    My daughter makes me a better stronger person. We were homeless and fought our way to get a home and survive.

    Wow, Nic. I can imagine that took a lot of strength and determination.

    I have to say once again my children and especially my oldest son (because he is multiple disabled) i fight for him (and the rest of my family) and before his birth i would never have done that.

  4. Dawn_KJ says:

    Angela, I admire that. It sounds like they’re blessed to have you in their lives.

  5. Angela says:

    Thanks :)
    Ít goes both ways i’m very blessed to have them in my life.

    My maternal grandmother – she taught me about kindness, compassion and self-sufficiency. She also peopled my imagination with stories about people from her past.

  7. Dawn_KJ says:

    Jen, I had a couple of colorful grandmothers. Quite the characters.

  8. Susan says:

    I have a friend from a job we both left, but we stayed in touch. She’s battled stage 4 breast cancer the past 18 months, so my own health issues are trivial by comparison. We try to get together once a week to provide mutual support.

    I loved the great cast of family and friends around Lonnie and Jamison. Getting to see the important people in their lives helps us get to know them better and really adds depth to them and the story.

    As for me, I’m going to say my mom, for the obvious reasons, her loving me and thinking I was wonderful no matter what I did. Her being gone has also been, even while awful, something that changed me, forced me to grow and be better without that cheerleader in my corner.

    Not sure if this is posting or not. But my sister is my rock. Shes talked me through some bad times. She’s my voice of reason.

  11. Trix says:

    My mom is my greatest confidante, and taught me most of the things I know about the things I love (art, cooking, etc).

    Hey there! Thank you for sharing your comments about the very special people in your lives. I’ve drawn the winner and it’s H.B. Congratulations! I’ll be in touch soon. :)
