All the Darkness


How do we convince ourselves we deserve happiness?

Genre: New Adult Romance
Publication Date: January 7, 2016
Series: All the Colors #2

Nate knew a life of colour when he had Stella by his side.

Now she's gone, her life cut short, he sinks deep into darkness when he discovers who is responsible.

He leaves town and leads a quiet life keeping to himself, not feeling he deserves anything more than just merely existing, in all the darkness.

Edie is trapped in her life, made prisoner by those who are meant to love and protect her.

She is drowning in a quicksand she can't breathe in. She's lost her voice, her strength, her self-esteem.

When these two cross paths, they'll both wonder if they deserve happiness. Can they make their way out of the darkness and to happiness with each other?

How do we convince ourselves we deserve happiness? How do we live with the dark acts we have committed?

All the Darkness explores the parts of our minds we try to keep hidden, even from ourselves.



Excerpt 

The night I wish I could erase from existence plays on repeat, stretching my mind to its limits. I imagine my brain is an elastic band stretched out so far it's losing colour and will snap at any moment.

I'll snap.

It should have been me.

I shouldn't be here. Free, walking around. Breathing.

I should be gone.

I should be in prison where some meathead has claimed me as his bitch.

I should be rotting six feet under the earth.

But I'm not and she is.

With her long, soft silky hair and shiny, vibrant green eyes always full of admiration and raw unashamed love for me.

Gone.

Her eyes will never shine again.

I will never again have the chance to run my fingers through her hair.

Her lush lips will never curve upwards for me, ever again.

Australian author who believes in happily ever after (most of the time) and some of the time participates in reality.
