Are you ready? A Broken Kind of Life by Jamie Mayfield - less than 21 hours from now!

A Broken Kind of Life by Jamie Mayfield, adapted from J.P. Barnaby's award winning and critically acclaimed novel, Aaron. Wonderful, courageous, heartrending, and finely tuned to realism, A Broken Kind of Life tells the poignant tale of a young man’s devastation and self-resurrection from mere remnants of himself. I am honored that J.p. Barnaby allowed me the privilege of writing the foreword for this novel. It is my further great honor to share that J.p. wrote the foreword for my upcoming novel, Omorphi.

Indelibly imprinted on my mind, this is one of my all-time favorite books and I can’t recommend A Broken Kind of Life highly enough. Buy it. Read it. Cherish it.

Pre-order it now from Dreamspinner/Harmony Ink Press!

Aaron Downing is broken, barely clinging to the hope that one day, he will be normal again. His life remains a constant string of nightmares, flashbacks, and fear, but he perseveres and starts college, determined to move on.
Then Aaron gets assigned to work with Spencer Thomas for his programming project. Aaron doesn’t want Spencer to think he’s a freak, but as he gets to know his new deaf friend, he figures out he doesn’t need to be “normal.” If he could just learn to control his fear, that could be enough to find his footing again.

Or so Aaron thinks until his parents begin talking about institutionalizing him to give his brothers a more stable life. He searches desperately to find a way to cope or even to fake normalcy. But his new shrink’s instability makes conquering his demons that much more difficult, and his attraction to Spencer threatens to send Aaron spinning out of control.
And don't forget to read Jamie Mayfield's Waiting for Forever series adapted from J.P. Barnaby's Little Boy Lost series! Check out all of Jamie's books here.
