Forgiveness isn’t linear, and neither was writing this book. I wish I could tell you it was straightforward, super easy, and so much fun. But that’s not totally true 🐳✨
It was actually a lot of thinking, plotting, and handling my issues in real time. I forced myself to write this sequel because after finishing Forgetting What I Couldn’t Remember, I felt that all-too-relatable pull of another story floating just below the surface. And I knew I still had some old hurts that weren’t fully handled yet either. This book gave me the creative license to do just that. When you read it, you’ll know that Vera’s thoughts, feelings, and experiences very much match mine. We’re not completely the same, but we’re definitely more similar than we are different 😅
What I hope to show through all this, is that forgiveness is a choice you make. At the end of this book when everything comes to a head, Vera has a choice to make. You’ll have to read the book to find out what she chooses, but I can promise you that you’ll like how things end up. As for me, in my life right now, I’m finally in a good place. I’ve broken away from my past, and I’m so ready to step into my greatness (had to quote #julieandthephantoms there because you might know by now it’s currently my favorite show).
Writers, tell me which of your books challenged you the most. Did it help you work through your issues? This one (and the prequel – on Amazon HERE) definitely did for me ☀️💕
This book challenged me in so many ways, but I’m so glad I chased those ideas. As I mentioned, this book almost didn’t happen! But I really think it sums everything up in a much more organic way than book 1 did. And that’s largely because I actually have forgiven my old bullies (and it only took two books and ten years to get there!).
Thank you so much for reading this far, and if you’d like to join my ARC team ahead of my next release (to read my newest book before anyone else) you can do that HERE.
Forgiving What I Couldn’t Change is the second and final installment of Vera Bartlet’s journey… and this time… she’s the one stuck in the virtual reality world. It’s set to be released later this summer.
