by Kaizen Love~~~~~~~~~~~~~BLURB:My Name Is Thank-You allows us into the worlds of two very different thirteen-year-old girls. Each girl’s voice carries its own unique tone, as the girls beckon us to follow magically into their lives. One is a joyous story of hope against all odds, the search for acceptance, and the longing for unconditional love; the other a sad tale of unspeakable abuse, constant rejection, and an overwhelming sense of loneliness. Thank-You and Josephine create around us a world rich with emotion, one that will leave you inspired, breathless, and yearning for more words.Excerpt :
"They say that a child’s imagination is one of the most powerful forces on this planet. As children we are able to tap into the mystery that exists outside of the walls of our minds. We are free from the cage of reasoning and ignorance. We are able to look beyond what is directly in front of us and see the path that lies ahead. As we grow, we begin to lose sight of these things. The mystery becomes overshadowed by the wall that grows bigger with each human experience. Eventually, we forget the magic and wonder that we once found in the belief that anything was possible, and the word impossible becomes the box that we use to shove God into. " (My Name Is Thank-You)

Aouthor InterviewWho inspires you?
Humanity; I am inspired every day by ordinary and extraordinary people. I have my favorite authors, musicians, celebrities, etc., like most of you reading. But, there is magic in and around everyone. For each moment that an act of kindness, gratitude, unconditional love, peace, and unity, exists, I am inspired.
Do you have strange writing habits?
I think I may have a couple of quirks. I have to be listening to a certain playlist, and I often catch myself speaking in the voices of my characters, while I am writing.
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in hot and sunny Miami, Fl.
How did you get into writing?
I have always been a writer. I don't recall a moment in my life where writing wasn't in the back of my mind.
What do you consider your best accomplishment?
My best working accomplishment would be publishing my first novel before my thirtieth birthday.
What is your favorite quote?
This is a tough one, as I have notebooks full of them. But this is definitely one of my favorites. “I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. And because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.” -Hellen Keller
What sacrifices have you had to make to be a writer?
This is certainly an easy answer. Money! Lol.
Do you think that the cover plays an important part in the buying process?
I definitely think that the cover is one of the most important aspects of the buying process. Before designing my book covers I scroll through hundreds of pages of books online, and I note which ones stand out to me and why. I apply those notes to my own design process, because I know what I like, and I would like to offer others the quality that I would like offered to me.
What do you think of “trailers” for books?
I think they are a great idea as long as they are done well. If a book trailer is poor quality, it may actually taint the appeal of the book.
How did you come up with the title? Names?
The title of my novel is based simply on the name of my main character. Her name is "Thank-You". I decided to title my book "My Name Is Thank-You", because her name reflects the entire tone of the book. Hopefully it screams "Gratitude"!
