Excess Baggage by Tracy Lea Carnes

A humorous yet inspiring glimpse of Kelly, a careerless thirty year old woman, who moves back home to her ostensibly dependent mother after the death of her overbearing father in order to rediscover herself.

Thanks and Enjoy!

Hi Tracy and everyone on here,

I think my book falls into the women's fiction side of things; it's not chick lit at all but I guessed your "/" meant either or both! If not I apologise for jumping in. My novel is The Missing Tree and is 99p

It's about a young girl who struggles to come to terms with the disappearance of her friend as well as the effect on her family, friends and the small rural community that she lives in. As she grows into adulthood she revisits her haunting childhood memories and things start to become clearer.

Thanks!
Jo

Twenty-Somewhere
Winner of the St. Martin's Press "New Adult" contest

Twenty-Somewhere tells the story of three best friends as they navigate life after college. Beautiful and confident Sophie Lin, goody goody aspiring writer Claudia Bradford, and boy-crazy nerd MJ Alexander are ready to take on the Real World -- or so they think.

But MJ's hunky lab supervisor keeps distracting her from her research, and what's worse, she almost doesn't care. After years of single-minded focus, MJ may have lost her passion for science, and her sense of self along with it. Meanwhile Claudia's passion for writing is stronger than ever, but her confidence is drowning in a sea of rejection. Her boyfriend Eli is supposed to be a life preserver; instead he feels like just another wave pulling her under. Last but not least, Sophie decides to swim against the current: she quits her advertising job in pursuit of a more meaningful vocation. Six weeks later, all she has to show for her idealism is a growing stack of unpaid bills.

As their relationships go sour, their careers sputter, and a few too many ethical dilemmas arise, the girls reunite in Paris, desperate for a dose of the one thing they can always count on: each other. But after so much time apart, will that really cure what ails them? Or will their friendship fall apart like everything else in their lives?

Originally written as a web series, Twenty-Somewhere is complete at 40 episodes. Think Sex and the City meets Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.
