I’m still on the road to discoveryBy Deb Julienne
Ever heard of the “overnight” success?
Yeah, that’s not me…not unless you take into consideration that it took me eighteen + years to finally get a book contract.
Work, life, family, health issues, you name it; it got in my way, until now.
Today I received the cover for my debut book “Sex, Lies, and Beauty Aids” and I couldn’t be happier--well okay, I lied, I will be happier when it’s finally released.
I’ve already gone through the pre-edits…only to discover I’m a “was” whore…can you say passive? See, I’m learning...and we won’t even go into the other over used words, now changed.
When I think back to when I started writing and the journey it’s taken me on…and yes, I got lost, several times, but the road to discovery…I honestly don’t think I’d change a thing.
In a perfect world we’d know what we need to know to get there. In my world getting lost takes you on some seriously hysterical detours. Needless to say, I am thrilled to be where I am now.
I’ve met some of the most wonderful people on this path, friends I never want to be without. We’ve had fun moments, sad moments, crazy moments and lots of laughs and for those lovely people, I am truly blessed.
More to time as I go through the editing process.

Blurb for Book I: Sex, Lies, and Beauty Aids
Sabrina Thompson is the editor in charge of finding and sharing Natural Beauty Secrets for articles in Skin Deep Magazine. Her perfect little world crumbles when her new boss informs her she will have to take on another column or lose her job. Imagine her surprise when she discovers her new job is offering advice for the Love and Sex column. What does a twenty-four year old virgin know about Love or Sex, when she's never been on a third date?
Trent Wellington is playing one final game of “Sexcapades” with his twin brother. Only this time the con is on the family. While Travis is drying out, Trent assumes his brother’s identity in order to save the magazine. Trent knows about Sabrina’s lack of experience and plans to be her practice toy until Sabrina discovers she’s been conned.
What happens on the road to "Educating Sabrina" is a wild and bumpy ride. Getting even has never been so much fun.
