Promise Me This
by Sarah Ashley Jones

Welcome to the South - where the tea is sweet and the accents are sweeter. This Southern way of life is all Charlie has ever known. It’s not until she loses the only person who pushed her to break free of the Southern Belle mold that she starts living the life she needs and not the life her parents forced on her.

Jhett has lived on the edge for as long as he could remember - constantly teetering back and forth between being a rock star and living a normal life. His rebellious and sometimes arrogant attitude is known to get him into trouble, especially with the girls who hang on his every move.

Charlie never thought that a trip to pack up her brother’s apartment would leave her feeling even more unsettled about the grainy details of her brother’s death. Her quest for information leads her straight to his old hangout and into arms of Jhett, who suspiciously knows more about her situation than he ever should.

Only a few questions remain - Can you trust someone based on their word alone? And if you make a promise, how far will you go to keep it?

TOP 10 REJECTED TITLES FOR PROMISE ME THIS

I’m kind of a title fanatic. I mean, besides the cover, it’s the first thing a reader sees when they find your book. I like books that the title and the story end up going hand-in-hand; when you’re reading and all of a sudden you get to that part where you go “AH HA” and you know where the title came from.

When choosing a title for Promise Me This, I had already written almost half the book before I knew which one fit. I was always writing down ideas on a note in my phone, but none of them really stuck out as THE one. Until one day, I was reading back over them, and Promise Me This smacked me in the face. It has probably sat there for a few weeks before this moment, but something about it made me want it, and I hope that readers have a certain “AH HA” moment while reading this one as well.

I’ve included some of the contenders for title below. Some of them make sense….and the others…not so much!

Sarah Ashley Jones was raised in San Diego, California, but currently wrangles her husband and four dogs in Clarksville, Tennessee. When she's not writing she works in a pottery studio and comes home covered in paint on a daily basis. She has a slightly unhealthy obsession with cupcakes and chapstick. She is an eternal optimist and can often be found dancing and singing to music at any given time. It's rare to see her not smiling or laughing, but if you do, just bring her a cupcake and it will cheer her up.

Promise Me This is her first novel and is a story that weaseled its way into her heart and wouldn't leave her alone until she typed it up on the computer. She already is hard at work on ideas for her next book and hopes that the characters never stop coming to her. Her huge imagination was always in overdrive as a child and now she is beyond excited to put it to good use as an adult. She plans to write as long as she has stories that need to be told.
