Introducing Brandy (Upcoming Book: True to Myself by Amanda Griffith)

Hey,

My problem is I think I’m an alcoholic. How do I know? I’m really not sure, but I know I’ve gotten so drunk I’ve blacked out and said and done things I’m ashamed of. I’m trying to get over my addiction, but I’m scared. My friend Tina just asked me to go to a party. I mean, I can’t stay at home and not do anything, but what am I gonna do if I’m around a keg, like at this party? I keep wondering if I’m strong enough to stop.

My boyfriend Jerry used to drink too. My mom keeps nagging me to stop seeing him. But he knows what it’s like. He’s the one who got me to stop drinking. She doesn’t listen to me. I’ve told her that over and over again. Parents!

So anyway, here we are at the party. I’m thinking Brittany’s gonna be there. She’ll probably open that big fat trap of hers and say something really rude. But I have to face her some time. Maybe this party is a better place to get it out in the open than the first day of school. So I’m going in now. Wish me luck! There is a keg, Tina just told me. I’m kinda mad at her. We were supposed to go to the movies. This is gonna suck.

  1. STEPcoach says:

    great idea! I think James Patterson does something similarly with some of his characters on his web site.

    and I'm going to do it, too!

    thanks!

  2. I have just started this blog written from the point of view of my main character. So far one person has written “what happens to her next?” I take this as a good sign. But one would hope it would spread far and wide over the net so a lot of followers would be eager to buy the novel (The Marshlanders) when it comes out through I Universe in a couple of months.
