I’m letting K.M. Jackson take over my blog today to tell you about her latest release, Bounce. I got a sneak preview of this story and must say it really touched on a few things with me. The struggle for Sabrina Jacobs to keep her head above water as a working mother and wife seemed oddly familiar to me. Well, Sabrina is tired of struggling and is ready to Bounce! Check it out!
Thanks so much for having me over at your blog today , Synithia.
I really enjoyed writing Bounce. The main character Sabrina Jacobs is a character near and dear to me since she’s very much an every woman. She’s a working wife and mother stuck in the same position as so many women, trying her best to keep it all together, putting on an outside air of perfection, but of course at some point something has got to give as nothing is ever as perfect as it seems on the outside.
To all outward appearances, Sabrina seems to have it all a perfect home, husband, kids, job… too bad her life is out of control. She can’t sleep, has lost her passion for her job and is even jealous of her too cute for the job nanny over time spent with her kids. Sabrina is burnt out and the fact that she can no longer trust that perfect husband of hers is doing nothing to help things.
Sabrina is having a serious case of the “grass is greener” syndrome and in BOUNCE I explore what happens when she finally takes a stand and steps on the grass on the other side of the fence to get control of her life.
Growing up as a young girl, Sabrina Jacobs could only dream her life would be this good. She has a successful career, a famous sexy husband, two children, a house in an affluent Westchester suburb and a shoe collection worthy of a magazine spread. Too bad it’s all a façade.
It has been almost a year since her husband admitted he had an affair with a younger and bouncier coworker. Follow Sabrina as she tries to rein in her out-of-control life by kicking her husband out on his rear, chucking her career and even firing her too-cute-for-the-job nanny. But how will she survive as a stay-at-home mom in the land of designer clothes, designer kids’ parties and designer babies? Hmm… maybe the hunky young French teacher, who has been flirting shamelessly with Sabrina, is just what she needs to take her mind off her problems. Well, not if her husband has something to say about it. Will Sabrina be able to forgive and still be true to herself?
A native New Yorker, K.M. Jackson spent her formative years on the ‘A’ train going from her home in Washington Heights to The Village where she attended high school. On that long ride to study math and science, K.M had two dreams: 1. to be a fashion designer and 2. to be a writer.
After graduating from high school, K.M. studied fashion design at FIT. She then spent ten years designing for various fashion houses. But after having twins and juggling that and fashion, K.M. took the leap of faith and decided to pursue her other dream of being a writer.
She currently lives in a suburb of New York with her husband, twins, and a precocious terrier named Jack that keeps her on her toes.
