'Karmen Moncrille's name has been known throughout the world since the age of sixteen when her first book shot to the top of the bestseller's list. Now everything she writes is an instant hit, and her legions of devoted fans eagerly await her next release. The mysterious Karmen always blamed debilitating panic attacks as the reason she avoided publicity and has become a recluse. Which is exactly what she wants the world to think. Only Karmen knows the truth behind her introverted nature. Terrified of being asked where her ideas come from, she fears being branded a raving lunatic. Now just a week before her twenty-third birthday, Karmen s world implodes. The madness that haunts her dreams spills over to her reality and she questions her sanity. Suddenly everything has changed and now the world will transform with her. Her last book will unleash the truth and alter mankind forever. Is Karmen's ability to write a gift or a curse? She's about to find out if her entire life is a lie. And why she was destined to write it.'

***What Would You Do If You Discovered Your Entire Life Had Been A Lie?***
(Guest Post by Ashley Fontainne)

What would you do if you discovered your entire life had been a lie?
That is the central theme of my latest release, The Lie. Let’s face it: there is not one single person alive on this planet who hasn’t told a lie in some form or another. Sometimes, little white lies slide off of our tongues with ease so as to not hurt the feelings of a friend or loved one. Really, are you supposed to tell your friend/loved one, “Yes, that does make your butt look big” or “I’m sorry, but your baby isn’t adorable at all, in fact, I’m going to run away screaming now.” Of course not! Most of us try to temper our words so that our loved ones won’t burst out in to tears.
Other times, little white lies are useful in everyday life. For example, if you are late to work because you simply couldn’t drag yourself out from under the warm covers on time, do you tell your boss that? Ummm, no, not if you want to keep your job. That’s when the “there was an accident” or “my car wouldn’t start” or “I’m really sick but I’ll take some medicine and be right in” or “my child/spouse/pet is sick” comes in handy. Nor harm, no foul, right?
We base our lives and the sense of self, our place in the world, upon not only our own concepts but the feedback from others. From an early age, every falsehood, whether said in good or bad faith, imprints inside our souls. We drink it in and it becomes part of us. Whether truthful or not, everything we hear about ourselves from others becomes the foundation that we stand on as adults.
So, what would happen if that foundation was yanked out from under your feet? How would you handle startling revelations that completely alter your perception of not only yourself, but others? These are some of the things I wanted to explore in The Lie.
