Confession #44

Posted on: March 24th, 2016 by Kate Perry 1 Comment
I’ve been having trouble pulling together SILVER MOON SPARKLING.
 
Not because of the story—it’s a good one. And not because of the heroine—she’s quirky and lovable and vulnerable and hopeful in all the best ways. I’ve been having trouble with Robbie.
 
“Not Robbie!” you exclaim with a startled gasp. “He’s awesome!”
 
He really is, and that’s been my problem.
 
In a moment of stark clarity a couple weeks ago, I realized every man I’ve ever loved has either abandoned, lied to, cheated on, or stolen from me. It’s a harsh reality to be faced with, let me tell you.
 
There’s been one exception: my dear friend Ron. And in the last few months, I’ve made platonic male friends who’ve been examples of the new type of man I want in my life: kind, honest men who respect me and my thoughts.
 
Robbie’s modeling this new kind of man for me. But there are moments where I don’t believe he exists, and that makes it hard to write about him.
 
Only if he can exist in my mind, I know I’ll find someone like him to exist in my life. So I keep writing, and believing.

  1. I have just read one of your books! I loved it and can’t wait to read another book written by you!! If you ever need someone to read your books and give you a honest answer I would love to do that. I read about 15 books a month. I am looking for a way to make a little extra money and would love to find a way to put the two together. I am disabled and can’t work a regular job. I have to rest a lot so reading is a wonderful way to pass my time. Good luck with your new books. I love your style of writing. Before I got my kindle I used the public Library. I have checked out about 1,000 books. I stopped in a December and they hugged me they thought I had been to sick to stop in. Brenda Callahan
