Blog Tour ~ Beatless by Amber L. Johnson

Synopsis

Mallory Durham has been left behind and it is making her feel less like an adult and more like an afterthought.

Divorce, sickness, educational aspirations being shattered, and her Aunt Sam
moving into her home, have made Mal’s life nearly unrecognizable to her.

When Tucker Scott re-enters her life along with his band, will they offer
what she needs to once again find her voice and self confidence or will
it strip her of it even more?

Told through the dual voices of
Mallory as she navigates her new world, and Aunt Sam’s letters to her
niece, Beatless tells the story of two women at very different points in
their life, fighting the same battles; proving that no matter what age a
person is, there are always lessons to be learned.

Excerpt

The Scott house was less
than five miles from mine, but it could have been in a completely
different world. The neighborhood was older, clearly didn’t have a
Homeowners Association, and the houses themselves looked like they were
in dire need of repair. His was a brown ranch that had an exposed
basement, which I quickly learned was where he had all his musical
instruments set up. It was a sweet deal because he’d soundproofed the
room with egg crates, the whole back wall was filled with band posters,
and there were a few guitars mounted to the studs above his keyboard.
He
seated himself in front of it, turning on the power and shuffling the
sheet music that had accumulated there. “What’s your vocal register?”
“I don’t have one anymore, remember?”
“We
can change that.” Light notes plinked out from beneath his fingertips
and he swiveled in his seat to regard me carefully. “I know you’ve got
it in you. You have to believe it too or it won’t work.”
“I
don’t want to sing in front of you.” The thought alone was making me
want to vomit. What if I was as terrible as I imagined? I’d only been
singing along to the radio in my room, but it was breathy and sparse,
and honestly, it hurt a little if I went too high.
His eyes softened and he patted the seat next to him. “Then sing with me.”

About the Author

Amber is a full time mom, full
time wife, is employed full time, and writes when she can. She believes
in Happily Ever Afters that occur every day – despite the obstacles
that real life serves up on a regular basis. Or perhaps they’re sweeter
simply because of them. She always has 2 rubber bands on her wrist, a
song in her head, and too much creamer in her coffee cup that reads
‘Cocoa’ – because she’s a rebel. If she’s not at her desk, with her
boys, or behind the computer, she’s supporting live music with her arms
raised above her head and eyes closed, waiting for the drop.
