Hello readers! Filles Vertes Publishing is presenting a new stunning cover for Sit With Me While I’m Mad by Milly Thiringer, and I’m pleased to be part of this cover reveal. Check out beautiful cover of this nonfiction book and excerpt in this post.

Book Title : Sit With Me While I’m Mad
Author : Milly Thiringer
Publisher : Filles Vertes Publishing
Genre : Non Fiction / Mental Health / schizophrenia

Synopsis:

“There are sensors in my hands and cameras in my walls. I’m sure of it.” But when Milly Thiringer mentioned this to her friends, the only thing they were sure of was that she needed to see a doctor.

Diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia at age nineteen, Milly spent years running circles through the revolving door of the public mental healthcare system, being told to focus on symptom management and coping strategies as no significant improvement in her prognosis could be expected.

She almost gave up. Almost. Along the way Milly’s learned to be her own advocate while fighting through and redefining “recovery.

Cover Designer: Jena R. Collins/JRC Designs

Excerpt:

Definitions: Nominal, or Real?

The ways that we define things inform our responses to them.

When I was diagnosed with schizophrenia, I clung to the words—the label “paranoid schizophrenia”—like a string of solar lights along a footpath to home. My mom, when she was teaching me to drive, told me to focus on the white line on the right-hand side of the road if the oncoming headlights threatened to disorient me. Schizophrenia was my white line. If we treat the disease, I can be well. I can be normal. My symptoms will go away.

As I sit here writing this, on my couch, seventeen years later, I can hear every creak in my house. I take an imaginary walk, past the rattling forks in the dishwasher, through the scratching of my pen on this page, around the popping joints of my daughter’s cradle. I whip through her asthmatic lungs that worry me so well, flit through the frustrated wings of a June bug attempting to escape my bedroom window, and I rest on the buzzing filament of a burning-out light bulb in my bathroom. And do you know what I hear?

“Can I be NOT here?” chhh…. Toowit-tawoo-chhh… The dishwasher is speaking to me and I am on the very edge of making it out. It converses with itself, deciding which details to share with me. President Obama (who is not now the president) has changed our national anthem. I hear this on the radio as well. The radio is turned off. “You are a terrible artist,” Sam says from his perch on the arm of the couch. “Look at those drawings. Disgusting.” My husband, sitting beside me on the couch, separates his upper half from itself and leans in to whisper frightening things in my left ear.

I look over. His mouth is closed. He is unified, not wavering and echoing like an apparition. He looks at me. Smiles. Tells me something interesting about the cycling app on his tablet. I look to my right and Sam is still on the edge of the couch; his taunting eyes make me shrink. He looks as solid as Dave.

I can, in the moment, tell what is real and what is not. I can’t do this in every moment, but right now, I can. The Worm of Paranoia on my spine is asleep, and I hallucinate peacefully. When he is awake, I cannot tell which aspects of my experience deserve fear and which do not. In these moments, I wear my terror like a choking cloak.

Author Bio:

Diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia at the age of nineteen, Milly’s life has consisted of many and varied attempts to locate reality in the midst of psychosis. She navigates her mental illness with as much honesty as she knows how and tries to remember that no label can define her p personhood. Milly writes to find out who she is, because she’s pretty sure she’s been told wrong.

Milly works as a paralegal and a freelance editor, trying to squeeze in time to write around contract work and raising kids. Her work has appeared in Awakened Voices, OC87 Recovery Diaries, and she is a contributor to The Mighty. Her essay, “The Third Plane,” will be published in a forthcoming anthology on parenting with mental illness called, How the Light Gets In, and she is making slow but sure progress on her first novel.

Milly lives with her family on a rural prairie in North Idaho, where the tumbleweeds are as big as her minivan and ice cream cones are still a quarter.

#CoverReveal : OUR LAST CHANCE by JAQUELINE SNOWE @FillesVertesPub #fvpbooktours #YAContemporary

Hello Readers! I’m excited to be part of the Cover Reveal for OUR LAST CHANCE by JAQUELINE SNOWE, from Filles Vertes Publishing. Check out beautiful cover and excerpt in this post.

OUR LAST CHANCE by JAQUELINE SNOWE
Series : The Final Season Series
Expected Publication Date : December 15, 2020
Publisher : Filles Vertes Publishing
Genre : YA / Contemporary
Cover Designer: Jena R. Collins/JRC Designs

Synopsis:

Rule one: Soccer is life.

Rule two: Forget boy drama.

Rule three: Stay out of Trouble.

Lana Reyes has no intention of breaking her own rules for senior year. That is until she doesn’t get her soccer scholarship—the one and only shot of getting out of her small town. With only one more showcase to make a name for herself, she needs help to increase her speed and agility—a skill set touted by her ex-crush and hottest guy at school.

Dylan Cadwell’s perfect spirals and chiseled features can’t erase the struggles he faces at home or in the classroom. With failing grades and parents who engage in constant yelling matches, the dream of playing college football is his only escape—one that could easily slip through his fingers if his lackluster grades aren’t pulled up immediately. If he loses a full-ride scholarship, he’s destined to be stuck in their small town forever.

When Lana and Dylan discover each other’s situation, they hatch a plan: He’ll train her; she’ll tutor him. It’s a seamless strategy, designed to help each other keep their eye on the prize—until rekindled feelings emerge and the greatest prize of all could be the love playing out between them.

Excerpt:

Chapter One

Lana

Senior year, baby. This was it.

Soccer. Scholarship. Shenanigans. If I could get it printed on a T-shirt, I would wear that shit every day. I shoved the final piece of toast into my mouth, tied my hair up into a high ponytail—my signature look since sixth grade—and bounded down the stairs like a bobcat. My parents raised their brows at my loud entrance, but they shouldn’t have been surprised. They’re the one who called me la tormenta—the storm—as a toddler, and I’d vowed to live up to my name.

The narrow hallway decorated with various family pictures led into a small kitchen that had a half-wall separating the dining area from the living room. We had a strict, no-food-ever-on-the-couch policy, so I grabbed a Pop-Tart and ripped it open near the trash bin.

“Mornin’ padres,” I said without spitting any crumbs on the floor. My mom’s gaze went straight from my mouth to the clean white tile; I cupped my hand under my chin in a dramatic fashion. “I’m not going to spill.”

“Yeah, I’ve heard that one before.”

I rolled my eyes, sharing a quick look with my dad sitting quite comfortably on the beat-up burgundy couch. I shared his style more than my mom’s. He liked rock music and had an earring; Mom wore button-up collared shirts and loafers. Despite their vastly different styles, they both were half-Mexican and from strict Catholic families, so they had the same integrity and outlook on life. He winked at me and pointed to the newspaper. “Did you see last night’s game?”

“Sí, claro. Cruz Azul won again.” I grinned. Soccer was the end-all, be-all of our family—and my future. No scholarship meant no college for me, and we all knew it. The panic I had carried all weekend flared in my gut—today was the day.

Today my coach would tell me the results of the showcase I’d played in a couple weeks ago.
