☆☆☆Memory Aren't Fairytales by Marni ManAuthor☆☆☆☆☆

Marni Mann writes--->>5 years ago I typed, "Marni Ma" into the search bar of Amazon and my full name popped up. I remember my entire body started to shake. I remember my eyes falling onto the cover of Memoirs Aren't Fairytales. I remember not being able to see much more because those eyes were so full of tears. I remember eventually clicking "buy" (that was way before 1-click) and rushing to my Kindle and waiting for the book to download. I remember hitting the flip button to scroll through the pages, seeing my name and the book title at the top. I remember calling my mom - my beta reader, my rock while writing every single word of that book - and telling her to drop everything and go onto Amazon and type my name in. I remember both of us crying when she only got to the "a" in Mann and the rest of my name filled in itself. I remember ordering the paperback, tracking that package until it arrived in my town and chasing the UPS driver down the street, long before he reached my house. I remember tearing the box open and holding the book in my hands and smiling. There were so many smiles. 

So. Many. Smiles.

I'm often asked, "What's your favorite book?" This is such a hard question to answer. I love them all for so many different reasons. My books are inspired by tragedy. Those tragedies are the base of my stories, but the meat of the book, the attitude and emotions from the heroine and/or hero, come from me - how I'm feeling at the time, what's happening in my life, and I morph those feelings and emotions and events into plot points. 

Memoirs Aren't Fairytales is based on a tragedy. A personal one. I lost someone close to me to addiction. But before I lost them, I witnessed their pain, their struggle, their need, their disease. I witnessed their highs and their lows. And then I lost them. Forever.

I was in pieces. I couldn't make sense of anything. I wanted answers that I would never have. I was angry and confused. Most of all, I was determined. I was determined to understand. So, I did EVERYTHING one can do to learn about this disease except for sticking a needle in my arm. And then I wrote. It took me over four years to write that book and another six months to get it published.

Whenever I think back to that book, I get a feeling that I don't get from my other books. Maybe it's because it's my first born. Maybe it's because of how long it took me to write it, how long that heroine lived inside my head. Or maybe it's because it's my favorite.

Since it's the PUBaversary month, I wanted to run a little sale. Memoirs Aren't Fairytales is only 99c, so scoop it up if you guys want. 

A big happy birthday to the book that changed my whole life. The one that made so many dreams come true, the one that made me--me. 


"I could feel my chin falling toward my chest, my back hunching forward. My body was acting on its own, and my mind was empty, like all my memories had been erased. There was scenery behind my lids. Aqua-colored water and powdery sand that extended for miles. I was never going back to coke. I wanted more heroin. And I wanted it now."

Leaving behind a nightmarish college experience, Nicole and her friend, Eric, escape their home of Bangor, Maine to start a new life in Boston. Fragile and scared, Nicole desperately seeks a new beginning to help erase her past. But there is something besides freedom waiting for her in the shadows—a drug that will make every day a nightmare.


With one taste, the love that once flowed through Nicole's veins turns into cravings. Tracks mark the passing of time, and heroin's grip gets tighter. It holds her hand through deaths and prostitution, but her addiction keeps her in the darkness. When her family tries to strike a match to help light her way, Nicole must choose between a life she can hardly remember, or a love for heroin she'll never forget.

Reader Caution: A harrowing story of addiction, this novel contains graphic scenes, explicit language, and disturbing situations. Recommend for mature audiences.
