Book Blitz ~ To Know Me by Marcy Blesy

To Know Me

Summary from Goodreads:
To know me is to die...

Seventeen-year-old Mae is convinced that the consequences of her poor decisions have caused the untimely deaths of her dad, sister Laura, and grandma who all die within a year, no matter how ludicrous her thoughts seem to those she loves. The solution? Run away so no one else she cares for gets hurt (even if she has to keep a GPS tracker on her phone at all times).

Desperate to earn her diploma and salvage something of her life, she transfers schools when people get too close. After switching to Woodson Prep with only two months to go until graduation, Mae keeps her goals in sight. But when she meets Ty, the "perfect boy" with his own secrets and a relentless interest in Mae, she must decide if she can stop running from the past and still protect those she loves.

About the Author
I am a former elementary school teacher and currently run an elementary library which is the perfect job for my interests.

In October 2010 I  had an essay published in Chicken Soup for the Soul:  Devotional Stories For Mothers.   Another essay will be published in November 2013 in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Just Us Girls.

In 2012 my debut picture book was released by Bronze Man Books. Am I Like My Daddy? follows the journey of a child who seeks to learn if she is anything like the dad who died when she was young.

My middle grade novel, Confessions of a Corn Kid, as well a YA short story trilogy, The Lexie and Rhett Chronicles, and To Know Me, were released direct to kindle in 2013.

I am a great eavesdropper and person profiler which proves a fabulous advantage for a writer. As my favorite shirt says, Be careful or you’ll end up in my novel.

  1. This book is new to me and I appreciate the introduction and giveaway! Looks great!

  2. I wonder what the inspiration behind this book was?
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. Thanks so much for featuring my book, "To Know Me." To answer Meghan's question, I began to wonder if something "bad" or challenging kept happening to someone, would they be able to accept that sometimes life doesn't discriminate on who it "dumps on" or feel personal responsibility. Mae's journey is one from feeling the root cause of the tough moments in her life to one of self-acceptance and growth. I hope you enjoy the book. Thanks for asking! :-) (And let's just say I've had enough growth in my own life to understand Mae's thought processes. ;-) )
