Welcome, Peaches D. Ledwidge. This is Peaches’ first stop on her 10-day blog tour. I had the honor of being one of the early readers of Peaches Ledwidge’s memoir, Day Laughs, Night Cries: Fifteen. I pored over each page with fascination as I traveled through time with Peaches from her earliest memories of her childhood, through her difficult adolescence, and finally, to young womanhood.
The memoir enthralled me, but I especially loved Peaches’ writing style. She rocks and rolls to the beat of a Jamaican drum, even when night falls and brings its terrors.
I was one of the copy editors for this book. I’m very proud to have had a small part in this accomplished work. I look forward to more great writing from Peaches Ledwidge.
Janie, thanks for hosting me. Readers, thanks in advance for taking the time to read this post. My tour is theme based. Readers, you are privy to the first excerpt posted anywhere on the Internet. Here is a glimpse into the theme of escape.
Fifteen-year-old female has just escaped. She stands five feet six inches. Weighs about 110 pounds. Has a straight nose. Small, evil eyes. Massive jawbones, according to an unnamed source. Normal ears. Fingers long enough to play guitar or piano.
She has a scar on her forehead, but sometimes she covers it with her long hair, which she usually combs back in a ponytail. Medium-brown complexion. Not so bad looking.
She has pimples, mainly on her forehead. Also some brown spots, a result of her picking the pimples. The pimples are not contagious. But, according to another unnamed source, she has been quarantined at home – after her escape.
We don’t know the reason for her escape. What we do know is that this is her second escape. She may have an accomplice. It might be more difficult to catch her a second time. This teenager, according to her Mama and her former friends, is cunning and evil, with strong hatred in her heart.
Do not approach her. Call the police if you see her. She could kill.

Hi, Janie & Peaches,ReplyDelete
The only thing left out of that snippet is that the girl is 'armed and dangerous'. Sounds intriguing.
