Product description

Product Description

Sometimes, falling apart is the only way to put yourself together.

“The story of one woman’s journey to change her life and realize her dreams, or face another crushing failure, Participant is a fully engaging novel that showcases author Carmen Kemp’s genuine flair for originality, memorable characters, and inherently entertaining narrative storytelling skills.” ~ Midwest Book Review

Alexis spends most sunny California days in a drab cubicle toiling away at a job that crushes her soul, and goes home to a dysfunctional relationship that is doing a number on her heart. She's plagued with discontent and haunted by an unsettling melancholy, which only worsens after her fiancé of almost three years packs up and moves out. Desperate to pull herself out of a downward spiral, she spends money she doesn't have on classes at the Chloe Dillon Modeling and Acting Center. Unexpectedly, she discovers a passion for acting.

Self-discovery and new friendships abound at the Chloe Dillon Modeling and Acting Center, where she opens her eyes to positive affirmations and mingles with talented ambitious classmates. She believes she's turning her life around as she painstakingly steps towards learning to love life and herself. Battling her way through self-doubt, fear, and depression, she musters the courage to risk it all, quitting her dreaded job and pursuing a huge opportunity that could help her break into the acting industry.

In the throes of preparation for the big acting showcase, she's saddened to learn that her estranged fiancé has been diagnosed with a serious illness. Alexis, finding herself in a financially and emotionally precarious situation, must choose between a newly discovered ambition that might never become reality, and the relative safety and sense of loyalty she feels for the only man she has ever loved.

Evolved Publishing presents the story of one woman's journey to change her life and realize her dreams, or face another crushing failure. [DRM-Free]

About the Author

AUTHOR: Carmen has always had a love of words, spending many summers of her childhood reading as many books as she could get her hands on. Her love of reading led to a love of writing, which started out with keeping diaries and journals since age ten, and ultimately led to her desire to write a novel. She was born and raised in Southern California, and still lives there with her husband.

EDITOR: In 2014, I eased into editing. A critique group made its way onto my priority list. If a writer buddy needed a beta read, I jumped at the chance to apply a critical eye as well as positive reinforcement to the task. With every project I worked on, whether writing or offering constructive criticism, I aimed to improve my craft as I helped my fellow author. Becoming an editor wasn't my goal, but as I learned more about the mechanics of writing, a natural evolution occurred. My editing skills grew at a much more rapid pace than my writing skills did. Since 2014, I've edited countless anthologies, novels, and independent short works from various authors. I wish I had counted. That number would be pretty handy right about now. My primary focus is on speculative fiction, but I'm also interested in women's fiction and romance.
