My Opinions on Covers
I love art…love scrapbookin’ and craftin’. I knew the cover of my book had to be different than others. No models…no pretty faces…& no dry humping on my cover! I wanted layers of color that popped and textures to represent the long road that Milly travels down. Yep, I’m a chevron whore!
Sprinkles were also a must, but you will have to read the book to find out why! At the center of our being is our heart. Our heart drives us and gives us our passion to either give up or make life your bitch. I’m all about being brave and kicking ass when the opportunity arises.
My grandma raised me. Growing up, I watched her be used and abused by loved ones for years. She always “WANTED” to try new things and branch out, but never did. I lost her 11 years ago. The day I dressed her and fixed her hair for her funeral was the day I decided to be BRAVE and throw caution out the window. I’ve done some crazy shit…some of it turning out spectacular and the others were great learning experiences.
My grandma made an epic potato salad, but I never learned how to make it….so guess what I discovered how to make the damn stuff. I went to crafting classes and signed up for all sorts of crazy shit. I found myself and guess what I didn’t care if my house was clean or not. Still don’t care about it. And I totally think dressers and organization is way overrated. I guess that’s the rebel in me. It’s all about courage peeps! My grandma who cared for everyone else and never herself, gave me the courage to write this book and now she will never know.
Back to the cover!
That’s why I chose to stand out from the crowd. I have received positive and negative comments about the cover. None of it matters to me because my heart is happy.
I leave you with this…
“Don’t you dare ever give up on your hopes and dreams…Be Brave and hold onto your courage now & forever.”
My Now and Forever by H.J. Bellus
Publication Date: June 2, 2013
Whose parents abandon them in a trashy trailer when they are five years old? Oh Yeah! Mine do!
Hey Hoochies! I’m Milly, and I am tired of taking kicks to the gut. A broken family, an asshole husband and the loss of loved ones have left me crying Uncle, and declaring a serious case of the Fuck-Its!
I had my heart broken, stomped on and shattered before I ever started on my journey to find my little piece of happiness. With a bucket list, a ’66 Ford and wild dreams, I set out on an adventure that changed my life forever. Follow me on my journey that resurrected my inner badass.
I found my soul sista from another mista, and opened my dream shop along the way. Just when I gave up on finding true love, a pirate and a princess swept me off my ever lovin’ feet and filled my world with sprinkles, mac n’ cheese and the courage to live again. They forced my fragile heart to trust and love without fear.
Truth is, nobody’s past stays hidden forever. It’s an invisible monster waiting to attack and destroy. It has the capability to ruin everything you’ve worked to set right. All it takes is one final blow to the gut to end everything.
