Help me get my book published!!!
My memoir You May Call Me Mrs. Beasley is complete and ready to be published. I have a contract with a publisher but they want a subsidy since I am a first time author. Help me get this book into the hands of readers. Funds raised will go toward publishing and marketing my book.
At fifty-one, Isabelle was finally living her fairy-tale life. She had her American dream - loyal friends, loving family, rewarding career, adoring husband, beautiful home. It was all she'd ever wanted.
Jack was also living his American dream and for him, that dream included a mistress. Up until now, denial had been Isabelle's safe place. She was happy there. Maybe not so much happy, rather more like accepting, resigned. But when Isabelle walked into Jack's love nest, denial was no longer an option. Even so, Isabelle wouldn't let go, couldn't let go. She loved Jack, didn't she? And she would cling to him no matter the cost - self-esteen, pride, personal well-being - weren't they over-rated anyway?
But like a game of Jenga, Jack's infidelity was only the first block to weaken Isabelle's foundation. In a life altering drama spanning two years, Isabelle's life falters one block at a time until it lies shattered at her feet.
Thrust into this wilderness, Isabelle loses her marriage, career and reputation. She stands in the pain of her daughter's incestuous rape. She shoulders the burden of her mother's betrayal. And in her brokenness, Isabelle reaches toward the comfort of death. A bridge. A shattered heart. A struggle. It is in these moments, through anguished screams and a torrent of tears, that Isabelle rediscovers the God she had left behind so many years before.
With intimacy and candor, Isabelle weaves the present with glimpses into her past as she shares her spiritual journey of restoration. With insight and honest emotion, she reveals what she has come to know. It's not about finding the light at the end of the tunnel, it's about finding the hope that allows us to forge ahead in spite of the darkness. It's about knowing the author of such hope, ripping open our soul to find the core where nothing less than God can satisfy. It's about surrender - God's dream, not the American dream.
