I’m very excited to announce that The Education of Gloria Dean is available for preorder now. It’s scheduled to publish in just a few weeks, November 15. For a limited time only, this full-length novel is only 0.99 cents.
I will post more about the story in the weeks to come, but for now here is the blurb I am using to promote this story:
Jim Hart has been on the run since he was a boy. A heroin addict from a small town somewhere in the Rust Belt, he has a terrible secret he’s been hiding most of his life. He prostituted himself as a boy and he liked it. The shame tears him apart, propelling him into a life of drugs, prostitution, and excess.
Gloria Dean is a single mother with her own sordid tales from growing up: a scandal at her high school; an affair with her next-door neighbor; a series of betrayals that force her from small-town life in Pennsylvania onto the cold streets of New York City.
They fall for one another and Jim soon realizes they have a lot in common. But Gloria knows things about life Jim doesn’t. Fortunately for him, she is willing to share. And now you, too, can share her experience. Based on a true story, The Education of Gloria Dean is the journey of two unlikely heroes who share a powerful connection of sexual shame and exploitation. Their roller-coaster relationship explodes in unchecked desire on the page, fueling a unique healing power in its aftermath. These two desperate characters, both of whom have suffered so much humiliation, search to their deepest depths, explore their truest selves, and persevere towards a more wholesome recovery. Hold your breath, because this is real: what follows are the most shocking stories these two have to offer; their barest, most base secrets of lust and desire.
