Blog Tour: Jenny's Blue Velvet - Angela Carlie

Author: Angela Carlie
Publication date: August 22nd 2013
Genre: Adult Romantic Thriller

Jenny’s stuck.

She’s tried just about every occupation she can think of and will be digging out of student debt for a very long time, but has nothing to show for it. Her everyday routine feels like a prison. And her marriage? Well, let’s just say it’s been a little one-sided lately and the money she threw down on the toys from Lover’s Erotic Store was well worth it and then some.

Jenny decides her next big step is to become a romance writer. Romance books are flying off the virtual shelves, after all. This will be her big break, her escape from the prison, and a way to freedom. Self-publishing is all the rage these days. She’ll be a best seller in no time.

When Jenny makes friends with a woman named Cassandra from the gym, she instantly decides that her new friend will make a perfect main character in her upcoming book. After the first chapter, real life begins to resemble the fiction she’s writing. Her friendship blossoms, sex with her husband turns into a daily feast, and her job gets more interesting with each chapter written.

Out of the blue, a person who is a close friend with her husband and who is dating Cassandra disappears. As the mystery behind the missing person unfolds, Jenny wonders if she might be responsible for his possible death. And if she is, what will be the consequence? What has this writing business gotten her into?

JENNY’S BLUE VELVET is a dark, humorous, romantic thriller for adults only



Jenny’s Blue Velvet was an odd book. Actually I was boring till something big happened. Still the end is so hard to understand.

Jenny ise married to Jason for 18 years and they have twins. She’s working in a ultimately boring job and she’s also writing a book. In her book the main character Cassandra loses her family, her boy friend and her home. And there is a ghost named Mathilde chasing after her and sometimes Mathilde causes bad incidents. But Cassandra meets her future husband Damien and when they agreed to get marry, Jenny has author block.

Jenny and her husband are waiting for their Las Vegas trip away from home and children. In hotel, Jenny couldn’t sleep and walks down to casino to play gamble and she run into her best friend Cassandra. She can’t make friend easily, that’s why Cassandra is her only friend and she tells her to play bigger machines. After this advice what happenes?: Jenny ears 1 million.

She tells her husband that she’ll be quitting the job on Monday and her husband understands she is different. Jenny is not taking her vitamins for two weeks, but actually they’re not vitamins. Here comes the biggest spoiler: Actually Jenny is Cassandra the character in her book. Her real name is Cassandra and Jason’s real name is Damien. They lost their twins two years ago and she becomes depressed. And the spirit chasing after her Mathilde is really killing people around her. Jenny – Cassandra – feels very upset to remember them but realizes that Mathilde’s going after her husband.

Now there’s a problem here: Is her husband dead? I didn’t get it. If her husband died, how she and her all family go to holiday in next chapter? I think Cassandra dies too. Or something else happens. I didn’t get it, I can listen if there’s someone who understands. I picked it because of its cover and again it didn’t come up something I hope to read.


Review in Turkish

Jenny’s Blue Velvet garip bir kitaptı. Aslında bir yere kadar feci şekilde sıkılmaktaydım ki öyle bir şey oldu ki kitaba biraz heyecan geldi diyebilirim. Yine de sonu bir hayli anlaşılmaz.

Jenny, Jason ile 18 yıldır evlidir ve ikizleri vardır. Kendi de feci derecede sıkıcı bulduğu bir işte çalışmaktadır. Hayatındaki monotonluktan nefret eden Jenny bir yandan da kitap yazmaktadır. Yazdığı kitapta asıl karakter Cassandra, ailesini,sevdiği çocuğu ve evini kaybeder. Peşinde ise Mathilde diye hayalet gibi bir şey vardır ve ara ara bazı kötü şeylere neden olur. Ama Cassandra aşık olup evleneceği Damien ile tanışır ve evlenmeye karar verdiklerinde Jenny için kitap bir çıkmaza girer, ilerlemez.

Jenny kocası ile çocuklardan uzakta, Las Vegas’ta geçirecekleri hafta sonunu dört gözle beklemektedirler. Otelde bir akşam uyuyamadığında kumarhaneye girer ve en yakın arkadaşı Cassandra ile orada karşılaşır. Cassandra, kolayca arkadaşlık kuramadığı için uzun süredir edindiği tek arkadaştır ve olaylar hakkında aynı şeyleri düşünürler. Cassandra uçakta sorun olduğu için uğradığını söyler ve ona biraz daha büyük gelir sağlayan makinelerde oynamasını öğütler. Bu öğütten sonra ne mi olur: Jenny 1 milyon kazanır. 

Kocasına işten çıkacağını söylediğinde işler garipleşir. Her gün alması gereken vitaminleri iki haftadır sallayan Jenny için olaylar tam tersine dönecektir. Burası spoiler olacak ama söylemem lazım: Jenny aslında kitapta kendi hayatını yazmaktadır, gerçek adı Cassandra ve kocası da Damien’dır. İki yıl önce ikiz kızlarının ölümüyle bir nevi kendini kaybetmiştir ve peşlerindeki ruh Mathilde de Jenny’nin etrafındakilerin ölümüne sebep olmaktadır. Bunların hepsini üst üste yaşayan Jenny – Cassandra aslında – bir hayli üzülür ve Mathilde’nin o anda kocasına saldıracağını fark eder.

Şimdi son durumdan itibaren şöyle bir sorun var: Kocası öldü mü? Anlamadım. Kocası öldüyse arkasındaki bölümde kızlar ve kocasıyla tatile çıkması? Bu durumda sanırım Cassandra da ölüyor. Ya da başka bir şey oluyor. Ben anlamadım, anlayan varsa dinleyebilirim hatta. Kapağından etkilenip seçtim ama hiç beklediğim gibi bir kitap çıkmadı yine. 







About the Author
I’ve lived in the state of Washington my entire life. Sure, it rains a lot, but that’s what makes it so beautiful here. I’d like to say it’s the most beautiful place on the planet, but I have yet to travel the world. Someday I’ll know for sure.

I write fiction involving young people. Mainstream publishing would label my writing as YA or middle grade. Since I’m an indie author, I can skip over the labels and tell you that each one of my stories is unique, can be read and enjoyed by all ages, and almost always has a young person as the protagonist. Authors write what they know and I don’t know old yet. I may someday write about older people, but that’s so far in the future that I can’t see it yet.
