JamieLynn Boothe - Guest Post

Today I'm thrilled to have author JamieLynn Boothe on the blog. I asked JamieLynn to talk about why having a strong heroine is so important and also about the journey to becoming an author.

Thanks for being here today JamieLynn! So what do you think?

In my opinion the importance of a strong heroine is to show the world how powerful women are. Not only are women owners of beautiful spirits and souls, but have amazingly strong wills. In Nightmares and Dreams I wanted to show how strong Christy was by overcoming odds that would stagger most people. That would be horrifying and extreme odds, but somehow she had love for her partner so powerful that she found the inner strength to do what was needed to be done in order to survive. This is s story of a woman who faced death head on and her nightmares that became reality.

My journey in becoming an author? Well, I have to say it started when I kept getting grounded growing up. I read a lot and wanted to create worlds of my own. Now as an adult I write about not only love, passion and suspense, but also about certain things that real people face everyday. I wrote Nightmares and Dreams three years ago as I lived in a community atmosphere with nine other men. It wasn't easy, but I was driven and determined. I originally self-published it, but it didn't do as well as I would have liked. Now I am with Beau Coup Publishing with higher hopes for it. I have also written the sequel to it, Dark Moments and Silver Linings and I am now working on the third book of the trilogy as well as other projects.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, JamieLynn, and sharing your thoughts with us! And I hear you about the getting grounded growing up...let's just say I was no stranger to spending some time in my room with a good book!

Dark Moments and Silver Linings

Tracy had moved to Provincetown with Christy and Heather to start a new life for herself. She lived in a new town, away from all of the nightmares of her past, or so she thought. She painfully realized that running away from her past would not free her from it. Because of her nightmares and fears and a strong suggestion from her therapist, she had to return home to Moneta, Virginia.

Once home, and with the help of Brad Washburn, she had to deal with more than her fears. She had to face and deal with her feelings for Brad, the man who had saved her life two years ago. Having become close friends, both Tracy and Brad had begun to have deep feelings for one another, but never revealed them. With her staying with him under his roof for the two weeks she was home, all of that changed.

Passion rose and love flew as their time together became hotter than a furnace. Can Tracy fight her fears and demons and handle her feelings for the man who saved her from death? Can she deal with the consequences of their lust and love? Will Brad be there for her until the end or will he be like her insecurities want her to believe? Will there be more dark moments or will there be silver linings?
