Meet Mia Montanari!

As nearly everyone in my world knows, my new book, Try Me On for Size, is due to release on August 11th!! Woo hoo! And you can order it now for a special presale price of only $1.99! Click here, or visit the ebook retailer of your choice!

So I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the characters who make up this crazy story!

First up is my main character, Mia Montanari!

As I wrote the book, I envisioned a laid back kind of woman, 32 ish, with long dark hair. I saw a sweet girl-next-door with simplistic beauty, like Natalie Portman :)

She isn't a frilly materialistic woman, she doesn't give a ton of time to looks or clothes or any of that. Just not her thing. She's part owner of a lingerie shop, called Classy 'n' Sassy Lingerie, and she is the classy part of the team. Mia is the one who brings her BFF back down to earth when she gets a little too wacky.

But Mia has a hard time letting herself go. It's all business for her, most of the time. ;)

If there's one thing I detest, it's superiority. In anything. I don't understand why anyone needs to act like they are better than anyone else. There are a million different paths in life and why is one person's better than another? may be the best for them, but not for others, and implying that it is the ONLY way is just plain wrong.

I see superiority in all facets of life. People think their lifestyle choices for health and diet are better than others. People think having name brand and designer clothes makes them better. Expensive cars, fancy vacations, etc... In the career world, people who do manual labor are often looked down upon. They work harder than most of the ones in office jobs with cushy chairs. I even see it in the most stupid places, like the ones who think they are better because they send their kids to a bigger and more expensive dance school. The one that gets me the most is the people who think they are better because of their resort choice when visiting Disney World. I mean, come on. Seriously?

Why can't people just be content with their lives and not feel the need to be better than others? Are they insecure? I feel sorry for the people with no ability to feel confident with themselves and need to belittle others to make themselves feel better.

Why can't we all just appreciate each other and support one another? Support the different paths that people choose? I think everyone wants to be happy and successful, to enjoy life and make the most of it. I don't think it's necessary to put people down in order to get there. #justmytwocents

Enjoy your day. Enjoy your life! You only get one! Be good to yourself, and be good to others :)
