“In the blink of an eye, her eyes lost the ability to notice a blink.”
 

What he lacked from his parents, Simon Mackenzie always got from his older brother. All their lives Simon could count on Dylan for the love and support he needed, until he decided it was time to face his own destiny, and try to make do on his own.

Simon knows it was the right decision. He must trust that Dylan has taught him enough so he can live his life independently, no matter how difficult it might be. Society’s rules are a mystery to him, and there are times when learning is a challenge, but he makes do, even with the constant memories of their troubled childhood and the dread of their drug-addicted mother’s reappearance.

Teaching music is his way to achieve it all, to interact and reach people without fear, sharing his gift. And teaching Natalie Miller the sounds that can make her break out of her shell is especially rewarding. Through Simon’s melodies, Natalie may once again be able to see the world, even if not with her blind eyes.

Together, Simon and Natalie can both learn how to better face the world, adapt, and thrive, despite their limitations.

Making Do is book 2.5 in the Myself in Blue Series. Even though it can be read as a standalone, this novella makes several references that can be spoilers if you haven’t read the other books beforehand. Therefore, it may be better to read the books in order.

November 2nd: On the Day of the Dead, my new book will be Live!!

This Friday is November 2nd. The day I chose to release my new novel – My Sore Hush-a-Bye.

But it’s also the Day of the Dead (el Día de los Muertos in Spanish, Dia de Finados in Portuguese).

It’s a day to remember friends and family members who have died. In some countries it’s also a day to celebrate their lives, like in Mexico. Here in Brazil it’s mostly a day to visit cemeteries and pray for the souls of the ones that are no longer with us.

I chose this date because it’s a holiday here, and I’ll have the whole day to promote my release. Nevertheless, I also think it’s inspiring—to bring new ‘life’ to this day, even if it’s a fictional one! 🙂

So, on the Day of the Dead, my book will be live! And it will be waiting for your visit on Amazon US, Amazon UK or Smashwords. You can also choose the Paperback edition (Amazon UK or Amazon US)

By the way, let me tell you—the Paperback edition is absolutely stunning! I know I’m biased to say so, but it is. I received mine this week and simply cannot stop looking at it! 🙂 I’m a digital girl and had never read another traditional book since I bought my first Kindle, but there is something truly extraordinary about holding your printed book!

Oh, last thing. There will be a Giveaway of three e-book copies of My Sore Hush-a-Bye and one of Mean: A Psychological Thriller Novelette on The Masquerade Crew, starting on November 2nd. Don’t miss it!!
