Guest Post & #Giveaway: Unfinished by Amy Snyder



UNFINISHED is the story of a mother whose children have left her for college and left her feeling more than a little directionless. Her world revolved around her children, and once they were gone, she didn’t know her orbit.
I started writing this story when my kids were in grade school. Then, they were just starting to gain some independence, starting to need me less and less. I began to look down the road to a time when they wouldn’t need me at all. The thought destabilized me. Where would I be without them? Who would I be?
I’m not sure that I meant to write a story that would so closely parallel my own. But as soon as I started writing, I couldn’t stop it. I wrapped my own fears of losing my children into Mirabelle. Fears of losing my kids, of being alone, of having nothing that fulfilled me without them. I began to reflect on my life and all I had not yet accomplished. Things I might never accomplish.
Mirabelle and I have also shared the struggle to end a story. Both she and I could never quite seem to find the ending of a book. I’ve been writing most of my life and up until very recently, most of my projects were in various stages of incompletion.
Many of the characters that appear to Mirabelle in the book came from my own shelf of incomplete manuscripts. Some were recent. Some went back as far as my college days.  And while none of my characters ever physically appeared to me like they did Mirabelle, they definitely hounded me. I always felt that nagging feeling of not finishing something, like when you know you have laundry that needs folding.

I am so grateful to be able to share Mirabelle’s story. As much as her story may be mine I think every mother can relate to feeling a little lost without their children.

Publisher: Fiery Seas Publishing

Genre: Women's  Fiction

Book Description:

Mirabelle is a writer who just can't finish any of the stories she starts. When her twins leave home for college, they take with them Mirabelle’s sense of identity. As she strives to adjust to her empty nest she is visited by someone unexpected: a character from the very first novel she ever attempted to write.

Characters from all of her unfinished works begin to materialize in her home, in her car, at her job. They talk, yell, and some even throw things at her. Mirabelle can see them, smell them, touch them and though she knows they’re not real, she can’t help but engage them. She created them, after all. They become part of her daily life and she finds herself alternating between hiding them from and sharing them with her almost-always-doting husband, Alex.

Some of Mirabelle’s characters are like good friends, encouraging her to finish something she’s started. Others manipulate her for their own needs and story lines. Good and bad, these characters are part of her and Mirabelle discovers she needs to both fix and finish them before they destroy her life, her sanity, and her marriage.

About the Author:

Amy Snyder began writing when she realized the strange things that happened in her imagination were far more interesting than the things that happened in her real life.  After earning her degree in Radio, Television, and Film from Northwestern University, she worked at a financial brokerage house, a nationally published magazine, an advertising agency, and most recently, an elementary school as a Math Tutor, Substitute Teacher, and Library Paraprofessional. 

But she’s always been a writer.

Amy lives in Glastonbury, Connecticut with her husband, two teenage children, and two cats. While she has been known to talk out loud to the characters she’s writing, she hasn’t had an actual hallucination…yet.
