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.

 Excerpt:

“This seat taken?” I look up and into the wide smile of the Pacific Ocean. It’s Ty.
“Are you always happy?” I can’t help but ask.
“Wow, that’s a great greeting. No, I’m not actually. I’m just trying very hard. I’ve been assigned to show you around, and you keep blowing me off.”
“Consider your assignment complete. I can find my way around.”
“Have you considered that perhaps you’d fit in here a bit better if you let people talk to you? And that if you did, you weren’t such a bitch.” Oh, good, I’ve achieved bitch status, and it’s only day two. Perfect. Now everyone will leave me alone.
“Just go,” I say. The last thing I need is to get close to a boy and not just for his safety.
