January is the month for resolutions. Eat healthy, exercise more, write more, practice the piano, spend more time with the kids, get up early, go to bed early... (those could all be mine)
It makes me wonder, what would Ava, my main character in SWAY make for her
New Year’s Resolutions?
SWAY takes place over the summer. It starts when Ava is returning home after almost eight years away. It’s her second time trying to start fresh. Even though it’s not January, these are the resolutions I would imagine her making as she tries to start over:
What kind of resolutions did you make this year, or do you bother to make any at all?
Blurb: She’d be happy to forget…if the past would just stop hitting “replay”.
Ava Elliot never thought she’d become a couch surfer. But with a freshly minted—and worthless—degree from Julliard, and her dad squandering the family fortune, what choice does she have?
Living with her old high school friends, though, has its own drawbacks. Especially when her ex-fiancé Eric Wentworth drops back into her life. Eight years ago, she was too young, too scared of being poor, and too scared of her dad’s disapproval.
Dumping him was a big mistake.
In the most ironic of role reversals, Eric is rolling in musical success, and Ava’s starting at the bottom to build her career. Worse, every song Eric sings is an arrow aimed straight for her regrets.
One encounter, one song too many, and Ava can’t go on like this. It’s time to tell Eric the truth, and make a choice. Finally let go of the past, or risk her heart for a second chance with her first love. If he can forgive her…and she can forgive herself.
Contains an actor whose kisses taste like chocolate, a pianist with scores of regret, and a sexy crooner who just wants his ex to cry him a river.
Author Bio: Melanie Stanford reads too much, plays music too loud, is sometimes dancing, and always daydreaming. She would also like her very own TARDIS, but only to travel to the past. She lives in Alberta, Canada with her husband, four kids, and ridiculous amounts of snow. You can find her on Twitter, Facebook, and her website.
