On Sale for $.99! The Day After Yesterday by Kelly Cozy and a Giveaway!

The Day After Yesterday

I read The Day After Yesterday about 2 years ago and was blown away by the story. Kelly was a new-to-me author at that time so I wasn't sure what I was getting into when I started the book. But it is an amazing story and Kelly is a beautiful writer. 

Here's what I had to say in September 2013, 
after I read this book.

Have you ever found yourself reading a book that you got so engrossed in that you just inhaled it? You just couldn't read fast enough? I wish I could say that about this book. The Day After Yesterday had the opposite effect on me. I was so entranced with it that I found myself stopping and setting it aside - I didn't want it to end. By putting it down, I could enjoy it longer, savor it more.

I absolutely fell in love with this story!

Whoa! I was not prepared to be sucked in to the story from the eight pages of the prologue. But that's what hooked me. I just had to keep reading. And it just got better from there. Like I said, I didn't want to stop but I didn't want the story to end either.

I got so emotionally involved with this story that I had to read it in bits and pieces just so I could absorb the thoughts and feelings of the characters. And yes, I will admit that when reading parts of this book, I did have tears in my eyes. I really am in awe of authors who can put so much into a book that the reader feels the emotions right along with the characters. It can't be an easy thing to do, as a writer.

I love to mark lines or passages in the books that I read, some part that just speaks to me. I did mark quite a few in this book, but when I went back to look at them, I didn't want to post them here. I was afraid of giving away too much of the story. Here are just a couple of lines that I can share. Sorry, you're just going to have to read The Day After Yesterday to get the rest.
'Leaving had seemed like the right thing - the only thing - at the time, but whatever he'd been looking for when he'd fled, he hadn't found it.' 
'But that's all any art is. Something done just for the artist. Whether it's a song or a story or a painting, it starts as something done for the self. If it touches other people, that's a blessing. Accept it graciously.'
Synopsis of The Day After Yesterday

The events of a single night can change a life forever, as musician Daniel Whitman discovers when he loses his family and home.

Overwhelmed by grief, unable to find solace in his music or accept comfort from his friends, he flees up the California coast. Daniel thinks he's leaving everything behind, but his journey will take him to the places and people that will help him find his way back.

The Day After Yesterday is a story of hope, friendship, and the redemptive power of music.
