I will write to you what I will have on the back of my book and also in the about “the author” section of my novel, After She Said Yes, which will be launching June 2nd, 2019. It will be ready for pre-sale this week on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million, etc. I am thinking about sharing the first few pages of my novel, for a sneak peek, but you let me know what you think.
After She Said Yes is a Women’s Fiction Novel about Aurora, a magazine editor in Madison, Wisconsin. She finds her way out of an abusive marriage after catching her husband, Gannon, doing something she could never forgive him for. Battling the wounds inflicted throughout her abusive marriage, she strives to find the strength to be an independent woman again. Aurora is confronted with a rekindled flirtation with her soon-to-be ex-husband’s friend, Melih, a Turkish Muslim man. But will Aurora’s previous marriage stand in the way? Finding surprising success after an article of hers goes viral, Aurora must make a choice. She tells herself to come to terms with the reality that a woman cannot have both a successful career and love. Will she pursue her long-awaited dream job, or choose a shot at love?
Kaya realized she loved to write stories when she was only twelve years old. She told her teacher she wanted to turn her story into a play, which was eventually acted out for the school. Kaya’s love for writing and her life experiences led her to write this novel for the women speaking out against their abusers and for the women who still haven’t. Though the novel is fiction, Kaya hopes this novel helps many women who are going through abusive relationships, PTSD, or eating disorders.
Kaya was born and raised in Northern Wisconsin. In 2016, she moved to the Florida Panhandle, where she works as a marketing manager and freelance writer. Kaya has articles published in The Huffington Post, Yahoo News, and several other media outlets. She received a BA with a double major in Political Science and International Studies from the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point, where she was the editor-in-chief for the diversity newsletter and campus blog.
