You Taste Like Whiskey and Sunshine by Kimberly Love




You Taste Like Whiskey and Sunshine
by Kimberly Love

I asked Kimberly where she went to find inspiration.  Be sure to read her answer below.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE:   Non-Fiction/Memoir

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
BLURB:

There's an evil queen, a demented father, some amateur boxing and a trailer park story. Even a silver fox makes an appearance. Why wouldn't that entice you?

If you are looking for something different from the rest of the books out there, something that might make you question your sanity then you will love this book.

EXCERPTS 

Mom? Are you reading this? Maybe you should have a drink first. Can we get a rum and coke over here? She’s gonna need it...

A lot of people have asked me throughout this process, why I would want to write this book. There are a few reasons why I decided to completely expose myself for the world to see, but certainly one particular moment comes to mind. During a heated argument with my ex-husband, post-divorce, he blurted out that he thought I was incapable of loving another human being. It’s one of those things you hear that is so shocking to you that the argument just ceases. I was speechless, I didn’t know what to say. Normally I would have chalked it up to the fact that he was in fact a disgruntled ex because it wouldn’t be the first time we got down and dirty in an argument, but this time I didn’t. I never forgot that comment, mainly because I wondered for years if it was true. There was just something about the way he said it that made me wonder if I was really that irrevocably screwed up. So, I decided to delve into my past, for my sake as well as my daughters, to find out why I walked out on a relationship that everyone thought was perfect.

The Perfect Places That I Find Inspiration

Inspiration is a funny thing and sometimes the places where you find inspiration are unusual as well. I do a lot of writing at home so it’s probably the last place that I find inspiration but there are times where even home will spark something inside. If I were to pick four places that I could visit to find some inspiration, they would be:

My Daughter’s Room

This is probably the only place in my home where inspiration lies. I spend so much time writing, editing and researching at home that I have to leave it sometimes or I will go crazy. However, there are times if I’m having a hard day that I can walk into my daughter room crawl into bed with her and read a book and that’s inspiring. Currently, we are reading Charlie and the Glass Elevator by Roald Dahl and there is nothing like stepping into a world where there are vermicious Knids chasing Mr. Wonka to inspire me to create my own unusual worlds.

Paris
I have always dreamed of traveling to Paris and writing my next novel in a café in the city. Paris to me is a romantic dream and I would love to create something magical there.

The Beach

Basically, anywhere that there is sand and water, I would be in heaven. There is just something about being by the water that I find very inspiring and my creative juices just flow so easily there. I think there is a part of me that becomes very in tuned with myself when I’m by the water so it’s only natural that I would find creativity there.

A Champagne Bar

No, seriously, you have to try it out. Go to a champagne bar, saddle up to the bar, order some champagne and then just sit there and watch. People watching is one of my favorite things to do and after one night of drinking champagne and feeling glamorous you will have so much to write about.

Book Description:
WHAT MAKES THIS BOOK AWESOME?
There's an evil queen, a demented father, some amateur boxing and a trailer park story. Even a silver fox makes an appearance. Why wouldn't that entice you?
If you are looking for something different from the rest of the books out there, something that might make you question your sanity then you will love this book.
Seriously! The comedic and sassy perspective will make you see things differently, and you may even find yourself laughing out loud. It's a good story and one that I truly believe needs to be told. Period.
It’s dark, raw and takes you to a door that keeps all my innermost secrets. I hope that the book makes you laugh, makes you cry, and inspires you to be the best version of yourself.
