That’s all it takes to have everything ripped away from you.
No one knows this better than Adam Beckerson and River Ahlers.
Each is fighting a losing battle with the death of Bobby and the fallout it causes. Adam loses a brother; River her best friend.
And while Adam finds himself fading into the bottom of a bottle, River finds the only thing she can do is run away from everything-- including Adam.
Sometimes when you lose everything, you lose yourself. The important part is finding your way back again.

Cassandra doesn’t remember a time when she wasn’t writing. In fact, the first time she was published was when she was seven years old and won a contest to be published in an American Girl Doll novel. Since then Cassandra has written more novels than she can count and put just as many in the circular bin. Her personal goal with her writing is to show the reader the character’s stories through their dialogue and actions instead of just telling the reader what is happening. Besides being a writer, Cassandra is a professional photographer known for her automotive, nature and architectural shots. She is happily married to the man of her dreams and they live in the rolling hills of New England with their dogs, Bubski and Kanga.
Cassandra Giovanni is published by Show n’ot Tell Publishing based out of Connecticut, USA

What is your favorite part of the story, Faded Perfection?
I really loved watching River grow. The first part of the novel is rather sad and draining, but being able to watch River grow was great. Then there’s West-- enough said.
How long did it take you to write Faded Perfection?
A few months once I actually sat down and was committed to the storyline.
If you were stranded on a desert island which of your characters do you want by your side?
Depends, if it’s from any of my books it would be Ana from City on Fire and Hunter from In Between Seasons.
What inspired you to write your first book?
Goodness, I was about twelve when I wrote my first full-length novel, so I’m not exactly sure. I do know that it would have been inspired by the Heartland series by Lauren Brooke. The first ten or so books I wrote were all about horses!
What is your favorite book that you wrote?
Right now it’s City on Fire, which is due out in August.
What is your typical day like?
Wake up, check social media, do five minutes worth of posts, go to work for 10 or so hours, come home, make dinner, work on book stuff for about 2 hours, watch some TV, go to bed-- repeat.
