"Pretty Girls Make Graves
is not a coming-of-age story. It's a story about allowing yourself to be lost, not because you want to be, or because you have the luxury to do so, but because you can't be anything else."
"An incredibly emotionally involving read." -Review on Amazon.co.uk
"Because I felt connected to the character, I really enjoyed reading this book. Justine may have some serious baggage, but she's someone I know after she shared her journey with me. She made me see a little bit of myself in her. Plus she listens to some kick-ass music."
"An emotional and absorbing read, engaging and perfect for the final days of a carefree summer." -VEUX, Issue 7
About the Author
During the recession, Nicole Trilivas was the creative director of a cool, young, and successful alternative advertising agency in NYC. It was here, chock full of job security and stability, when she made the unlikely decision to finally tend to the persistent nagging that comes built into the heart of a writer who is not writing. And so eyes were rolled, eyebrows raised, two-cents given, and a consensus drawn: it was officially “a bad idea.” It would be really cool if Nicole was unfazed by all this, but that’s not the truth. She was terrified. But luckily being scared isn’t mutually exclusive with backing out. Fear and all, Nicole moved abroad to write what is now her debut novel, PRETTY GIRLS MAKE GRAVES. (And it only took her a few years!) But she hasn’t looked back. Nicole is currently based in Europe where she is scribing away on her next novel, and being terribly bohemian by living off canned soup, wearing a beret, and indulging in delusions of grandeur. Nicole is a 2005 graduate of Boston University’s College of Communication. For more information, poke around www.nicoletrilivas.com
