Blog Tour and Excerpt: Paradisal Tragedy


What do you do when a single turn of events takes your life and flips it upside
After a dark and cold night leaves her life changed forever, eighteen-year-old
Annabella Adams is left to pick up the broken pieces of her life. Living the past year with a horrible secret, she closes herself off to the world and the people that she loves most. Despite trying to bury the past and move on with her life, everything becomes so much more painful.
Travis Braxton has known nothing but pain. Growing up with a mother who always worked to give him what he needed and a father who abandoned him at the age of seven, he never really knew what it felt like to be a part of a happy home.
When Travis and Annabella meet, the sparks between them are undeniable. Love is
the last thing that Annabella needs, but how to you deny something that feels so
right? Realizing just how much they are drawn to each other, they set the world
on fire. But when Travis learns the secrets of Annabella’s past, things start to
unravel. Will they survive the ugliness that the world brought upon them or
decide to go their separate ways?


Dear Diary,
I feel like I’m standing at the very top of a clif , on the edge and the only way to go is
down. I’m not quite sure I got here, to be honest.  I’m trying to remember back to the girl
that I used to be, the one that saw the good in everything, the one that brought the
optimism to every situation. I miss her. I don’t know who I am anymore. I’m spiraling
down a path unknown, and I don’t know how to find my way back to the light. I’m
broken, and I don’t know how to save myself. I was raised a Christian, but lately, I’ve
had such a hard time to find my faith with all the cards I’ve been dealt. I’m trying to find
peace, I’m trying to fix my faith in God, but how can I do that? If I’m going through this much pain, then how is there possibly a God? I’m not sure where to turn anymore, which
is why I write to you. I don’t particularly writing my bare words, my heart on paper for
someone to possibly to find, but the thought of saying all my dark thoughts scares me so
deeply. I’m lost and I feel alone and the truth is I feel like I’m dying. This life is killing me
The sad part is that I’ve been living with this secret since it happened. The only optimism
I can find in it is the fact that my dad got that job of er all those months before it
happened, and I was able to run away from everything. What happened to me, it took
apart of me that I’m not sure will ever return. I’m stuck in this darkness, but unlike most
darkness’s there’s no light at the end of this tunnel. It’s permanent. I’m falling down, and
I don’t know how to get up. Why does it hurt so badly? Life shouldn’t be this hard for an
eighteen year old girl? I guess it goes to show that life just isn’t fair and no matter how
good you are as a person, you’ll never be able to be happy.
