SNEAK PEEK! The Details of my Reality by Katie L. Oslin




Title: The Details of my Reality
Author:  Katie L. Olsin
Genre: Fiction, Romance, Young Adult
Event organized by Goddess Fish Promotions


Book Description: 
My Purpose for writing this novel is to bring generations of women together.  My goal is to build a sense of camaraderie that resonates with women of all ages.  For the older generations this novel acts as a time capsule.  The novel is filled with so many emotions that the reader will laugh, cry, and feel as though the characters have come to life.  As for the younger generations, they are able to learn some of life’s lessons and know that other women have gone through similar circumstances that they may be experiencing.



Book Excerpt: He hugged me tightly for so long I wondered if he’d ever let me go.  Our cigarettes developed the longest ashes I ever saw.  As mine finally fell to the ground, I was reminded of how quickly I fell for Johnny and how our relationship had been burning for the last three years.  Eventually, we, too, like that ash, would fall.  We would end up a memory of something that burned so deeply into our souls and it too would eventually turn to ash.

Such thoughts swirled through my mind, as I drove without a destination.  Eventually, I found myself at the park where Johnny and I went that fateful night when he showed me the secret overlook and took my virginity and my innocence.  I decided to park the car, then I grabbed my emergency blanket, flashlight, and cigarettes and walked toward the precipice where it all began.

A tear fell down my cold wet cheek.  I sighed and gave him my heartbreaking answer.  “Honestly?”  I held back my tears as best I could.  “I want you to leave me alone, Johnny.  I want you to love me enough to let me go.  I want you to help me finally get over you by staying the hell away from me.  I want you to stay out of my life and let me be.  Please, Johnny, I’m begging you.
“I want to be happy.  I deserve that, and you of all people know it.  Since I can’t have it with you,” I said, crying a little harder, then I deserve to have it with someone else.  So, please, Johnny, if you love me like you say you do, you’ll let me go.”

  5. Here's another reason why I like following authors on tour; I find books I would not ordinarily find without taking a chance on reading a title and a little brief before the tour begins. I'm a senior citizen and not your target market and I read mostly historical romances so I shouldn't be attracted to a book geared to the YA market. But what they hey? It sounds like a story that can bridge the ages.

  6. Thanks Karen!It's a pleasure to have you here today on the blog! And you're absolutely right. #TheDetailsofMyReality truly is. My 80 something year old grandmother read it and could relate as well as my friend's fifteen year old daughter! As women I think we often take very similar journeys and bare similiar scars.

    1. Honestly my own! I think #TheDetailsofMyReality would make an incredible transition to film. The story line is deep enough and the characters are complex enough to make a huge impact on screen. In fact, that is a long term goal of mine.
