Falling Behind by Dee Avila w/giveaway

Falling Behind Banner


Before everyone freaks out, yes this book is YA and yes, Pink should have posted it but I felt the subject matter was too important NOT to post over here.  The situations in the book can and have happened to many different people.  Doesn’t matter where you live, how much money you have, etc.  Abuse is abuse…no matter what form.  I highly recommend this book to mothers to give to their teenagers/college age daughters to read.  Again, too important to ignore.  🙂

About the AuthorDee Avila

I’m a wife and mother of four. I have been writing for as long as I can remember. I use to write fairy tales when I was in grade school, but now I love writing about those tough high school years and how one decision can change the course of your life. Friendships, first loves and over coming the odds all interest me.
Three years ago, I decided life was too short to waste my stories by letting them collect dust on my shelves. I researched querying, took a few writing workshops and wrote the whole time. I first ventured away from what I normally wrote and tried a Paranormal Romance. That novel is tucked safely away. A year ago I chose to go back to my roots and write what I love – friendships, love and choices – how speaking out can save a life, maybe yours or a friends.
I talked to other authors and made wonderful friends. That’s when I learned about self-publishing. I’m glad I followed through. I was so nervous to hit publish, but now I am grateful for the encouragement. It was the best decision I’ve ever made.

I’m usually in front of my laptop. When I’m not writing I am either trying to catch up on a weeks worth of laundry or on Facebook. I am a huge procrastinator. Usually close to a deadline, you can find me actually cleaning house just so I don’t have to hit send. I think sending my books out to betas and my editor is the second scariest thing in the world. I love Rockstars and PB&J sandwiches. (Not the healthiest I know but it’s the fastest and it tastes good.)
I love meeting new people, find me on Facebook/deeavilaauthor
