Today I take great pleasure in sharing the cover of the second book written by my friend, James J. Cudney IV.

Jay, this is for you.

Take deep breaths, have a champagne or two, and congratulations on publishing your second book!!

Happy Publication Day!!

The most gorgeous cover, so apt for this book, it is everything I thought it would be and more.

About the Author

James is his given name; most call him Jay. He grew up on Long Island and currently lives in New York City, but he has traveled all across the US (and various parts of the world). After college, he spent 15 years working in technology and business operations in the sports, entertainment and media industries. Although he enjoyed my job, he left in 2016 to focus on my passion: telling stories and connecting people through words. Watching Glass Shatter was his debut in 2017, and Father Figure is his second book

Book blurb

Between the fast-paced New York City, a rural Mississippi town and a charming Pennsylvania college campus filled with secrets, two young girls learn the consequences of growing up too quickly.

Amalia Graeme, abused by her mother for most of her life, longs to escape her desolate hometown and fall in love. Contemplating her loss of innocence and conflicting feelings between her boyfriend and the dangerous attraction she’s developed for an older man, Amalia faces life-altering tragedies.

Brianna Porter, a sassy, angst-ridden teenager raised in New York City, yearns to find her life’s true purpose, conquer her fear of abandonment, and interpret an intimidating desire for her best friend, Shanelle. Desperate to find the father whom her mother refuses to reveal, Brianna accidentally finds out a shocking truth about her missing parent.

Set in alternating chapters two decades apart, the parallels between their lives and the unavoidable collision that is bound to happen is revealed. FATHER FIGURE is an emotional story filled with mystery, romance, and suspense.

      1. Well aren’t you two quite funny! I have read Shalini’s AMAZING review and been chatting with her this morning. I may or may not have had a tiny bit too much to drink last night and crashed in bed… so I was offline for about 12 hours (very unusual for me), but I’m back this morning! 🙂

        1. Hey look everyone, the AUTHOR is here alive and kicking. Well you were MIA which led to all sort of thoughts.. Nina was all ready for entertainment with popcorn and ice cream haha…
