One Lonely Degree: I'm Not Okay (I Promise)

One Lonely Degree: I'm Not Okay (I Promise)

Two days ago One Lonely Degree hits bookstores across Canada and the United States and to celebrate I'm going to be holding a June contest to give away some books and book related GOODIES so look out for that in a few weeks.

I wrote One Lonely Degree five year ago but somehow it's still kind of weird for me to imagine that it's all over with. Maybe because I spent such a long time with the characters. I didn't see much of them for several years after finishing the book but then came the editing, coming up with descriptions of Finn and Jersy for Random House to use for casting the cover shoot, pouring over pictures of swimsuits to select some that could be right for Jersy and Finn, and rethinking words and phrases during copy-editing. Writing and publishing a book is a long process and it winds down gradually but it seems One Lonely Degree is finally done, right down to the commas and semi-colons.

I've been posting lots of music related to the book lately and that's something I'm probably not done with! Below I've posted a song that sums up Finn's emotional state for much of One Lonely Degree.

I'm Not Okay (I Promise), My Chemical Romance:

Some of the things that Finn does during the course of the book probably wouldn't happen if she was feeling more okay and then again, some of those exact same not so okay things happen precisely because she's starting to feel better in certain ways. Life is confusing and full of shades of gray.

Anyway, there are already some blog reviews for the book up if you want to have a look:
