New Title: Dancing on the Straight Edge

I asked friends on Facebook about the title. Originally I planned on going with Drug Virgin Hypocrite. Other titles were thrown around including:

Straight Edge

Daughter of Hypocrisy

Secrets of a Straight Edge Girl

Strait Edge Masquerade

Straight Edge Sanctimony

Straight Edge Hypocrite

I've decided on Dancing on the Straight Edge. It's a bit of an homage to Johnny Cash's Walk the Line. 

One friend mentioned the book isn't about dancing which is a little misleading. So I am going to tie dancing in more (technically there are 2 dancing scenes though).

Picking this title has been a challenge. In fact just about every aspect of this book has been a challenge.  It was a challenge to write because I put so much of myself into how she dealt with her struggles. Anyone who has ever felt like they couldn't share an aspect of their life with others for fear of rejection should be able to relate to my main character Cola.

I'm working on the edits now and can't wait to share the story I've been working on for ten years. Hopefully, y'all will enjoy it.

 Six months before Cola turned eighteen in Dancing on the Straight Edge, she met the Drug Virgins. Read how it all began in this free short story prequel.
