Book Description

Bethann, a struggling college student, takes her evil younger sister, Holly, to re-raise after the grandmother who tried to raise them dies. On the rainy interstate, en route from South Georgia to Miami, Florida, Bethann lays down the rules to Holly--no more stealing, no more lying, no more recreational eating, no more drugs..no hanging out with dopeheads...no more, no more...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what I was expecting... September 30, 2012
By Sam
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's Okay To Cry was an OK book. The author had a good idea, and a good start to a story, however they did not go any farther with it than what probably could've been a prologue. From the description I thought the other "evil younger sister" would have been a younger teenager, and much more teenager acting. The author didn't go quite as far as I would've liked into the story, but it is deffinitely a good idea! I'd like to see more added, such as chapters and a full book. Very short to this point, but interesting enough to make you want to read more.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good June 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story is a good character study rich with tension. However, I had trouble determining the time setting. Ialso had trouble picturing Bethanne and figuring her age and Holly's. But i do appreciate the author making this story available for free. She is a talented writer. The story needs some editing. Looks like the conversion to HTML resulted in problems with paragraphing and spacing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Deleted rather quickly April 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Okay idea but needs a lot of work. Deleted it as it is not worth the space. Was also made to think it was a good book by a few of the reviews. Glad this was free!

1.0 out of 5 stars Seemed good but... February 27, 2013

This book seemed as if it was going to be good, but it was delivered to my kindle and it only delivered the first few pages, so I really can't be sure.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring, sad ending. February 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is only a 15-page book, insanely boring, with no real plot, and a really sad ending. I would not recommend it. The other reviews led me astray and made me believe this was a better book than it really was.

1.0 out of 5 stars TERRIBLE!! January 13, 2013
By Cbrewer
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
THE AUTHOR HAD A GOOD IDEA BUT WAS NOT ABLE TO COMMUNICATE IT VERY WELL. THE WRITING STYLE CONTAINED ERRORS AND SIMPLY DID NOT FLOW EASILY. FOR THE DEPTH OF THE AUTHOR'S IDEA, THE LENGTH OF THE NOVELLA WAS ENTIRELY TOO SHORT.

More About the Author

See www.janicedaugharty.com for sample writings and more on me.

Fans will notice over a dozen short stories by me for sale in the Kindle Store. Though self-published, these stories are not file-dregs nor practice writing, but carefully written and edited works of short fiction that have been previously published in the finest lit journals; some picked up by annual and other anthologies. As with my novels, both ebook and print, I frequently offer my stories for free, at all online book sites, as introductions to my longer works of fiction.

Please check my author's pages everywhere for what's free and new; I try to often refresh my offerings.Also,I have a new novel, "Morning Shades," coming out soon from my current publisher BelleBooks.

Contact me via Facebook; I love hearing from you.
