Morning and welcome back to my MMCM blog tour post. Today I would like to introduce you to Amy Roberts, the main character of HIM, my upcoming fictional suspense thriller. HIM is set in Tennessee just west of Nashville and on an island off the coast of South Carolina. Amy is nineteen years old when the novel begins. She lives with her mother and younger brother. Her father is deceased, and her grandparents are the ones who own the island where most of the novel takes place. Amy likes to read, watch television, and hang out at the mall with her friends, as most teenagers do. She doesn’t have much of a love life due to her traumatic childhood, but she has been tentatively seeing an employee of the resort her grandfather owns.
Amy should have had a normal childhood. She should have had a mother and father who love her, a brother who annoys her, and normal love life, but due to the fact that her father dies of a brain aneurism when she is young, and her uncle spends most of her life molesting her, she doesn’t get any of these things. Amy’s mother doesn’t believe her when she tells her what her uncle has been doing to her, claiming that her daughter is simply seeking attention. Her mother’s disbelief puts a strain on her relationship with her brother, who is torn on what he should believe. Having only known the touch an abusive man, she can’t bring herself to get close to anyone.
Throughout the novel, Amy is on the run from her abuser and learning to love, trust, and fight back with the help of her sort of boyfriend and younger brother.
HIM has a tentative release day of January 2015. To stay up to date with this novel’s progress stop by this site often or like my Facebook page. I’m hoping to start releasing sample chapters on Goodreads and creating a Facebook page next month.
