I finally saw the cover of Just Breathe and I am so excited, it looks so good. It also looks so innocent compared to the stories, but that is what makes it fun, right? Haaa! Today I wanted to give you a short excerpt from Murphy Wallace’s story, ‘Hostile Takeover’ so you could see just how not-innocent the stories actually are.
* * *
From Ashes to Ashes, and dusk to dusk, there are those that Cocoon themselves in the Little Lies they tell.
When the Wreckage keeps them Awake at night, they see the Sickness In The Sunrise. They Ignite everything in their path.
When their minds run through the Unbearable and Forbidden Sorrows. Until one day they find the thing that keeps them Grounded.
All while others feel the Hostile Takeover of their lives. The constant Loops and The Rows of Tattered Pieces and fragments that plague them. Sometimes those can’t be Purged driving them to the Edge of Madness.

Excerpt from Hostile Takeover
I saw red. Yes, I flew into a rage. I was angry, but can you really blame me?
He wasn’t playing me when he said that he was into me.
We had a connection. We were made for one another. I was out for once. Free.
And then all of the attention was back on him. Like it always is.
I couldn’t take it anymore. I should have shot him that night instead, but I wasn’t strong enough.
Saying goodbye to him wouldn’t work out well for me.

I can’t wait for everyone to read these stories, each one deals with a different mental illness or disorder and it is so heartbreaking to know people deal with this so regularly. I can’t wait for you to get your hands on this anthology, stay tuned as I should have preorder links on Tuesday!

Want to know more about Murphy Wallace?
Murphy Wallace, though a new author on the scene, has always had a deep appreciation for the written word. She started writing at a young age after discovering that the most amazingly beautiful art forms just by stringing words and sentences together. She never thought that she would be publishing a novel one day and she’s still in complete shock over it.
When she isn’t writing she’s most likely fallen down the internet rabbit-hole, searching for new images and videos of model Stephen James.
She doesn’t watch much TV but she can sit and watch Shameless for hours; sometimes days.
Murphy recently relocated to Florida with her husband, who doubles as her best friend, and their two boys. She has a cat named Maisy who is her constant writing partner.
