Saving Beck will be in Hardcover!
Updated: May 1, 2018
Oh my gosh! My upcoming book, SAVING BECK, will be in hardcover!!!
I had the most amazing call with my editor from Gallery over the weekend, and I learned that SAVING BECK is going to be in hardcover!!
I've never been in hardcover before, and I can't think of a book I'd rather have be my first.
Saving Beck is a fictional account of a mom and son (alternating points of view) battling addiction. It is real, it is gritty, and I don't flinch from showing the ugly parts. Since it is fiction, a lot of the storyline has been dramatized, of course, for your entertainment. But the parts dealing with Beck's addiction, and the things he does in the book, they are all loosely based on things my own son did and experienced.
There comes a time when offering your life for your child’s doesn’t work, when you realize that it’ll never be enough.
The cold needle in his warm vein was a welcome comfort to my son at first. But then it became the monster that kept us apart.
Heroin lied, and my son believed. It took him to a world where the last year didn’t happen, to a place where his father was still alive. What Beck didn’t understand was that it couldn’t bring his father back from the dead. It couldn’t take away his pain, not permanently.
You think it can’t happen to you, that your kids, your family, will never be in this situation. I thought that too. But you’re wrong.
Step into our world, and see for yourself. Watch my golden boy become a slave to this raging epidemic. Watch me try and save him.
Drug addiction comes with a price. Trust me, you’re not equipped to pay it.
-- Coming July 17 from Gallery (Simon and Schuster)
