The (Mis)Adventures of Waverly Bryson
A humorous tale of affection, rejection
and the search for perfection
By Maria Murnane
Anything can look perfect…on paper
When her fiancé calls off their wedding at the last minute, Waverly Bryson wonders if her life will ever turn out the way she thought it would…or should. Her high-powered job in sports PR? Not
so perfect. Her relationship with her dad? Far from it. Her perfect marriage? Enough said.
Perfect on Paper is a humorous tale of Waverly’s efforts to cobble the pieces of a broken yesterday into a brand new tomorrow. What does the future have in store for her? Will she finally find what she’s looking for?
Her dates? Cringe-inducing at times, definitely entertaining
Her friends? Often amused, definitely supportive
Her new crush? Possibly intrigued, definitely a catch
The results? Hardly perfect, definitely just right
They say laughter is the best medicine? (front)
Honey, toss it in with girlfriends and beer, and you've found the fountain of youth. (inside)
Ever wonder why the new girl at work seems to hate you so much? (front)
Honey, think back to the angst of the high-school lunchroom. Then offer her a seat at your table. (inside)
From Waverly to her girlfriends, co-workers and men she dated, all of these characters are colorfully written in making a well rounded story. If you want to smile until your face hurts or laugh until you cry, then this is the book to get. So go buy a copy, get some hot chocolate and curl up in your favorite chair and enjoy the life of Waverly Bryson...you won't be disappointed.
Thanks to Tracee at Pump Up Your Book Promotions for sending me this book and letting me be on the books blog tour!!!
Maria is currently an independent business writer and works mostly with technology and financial services companies, but like the main character in her book, she did spend a few years in sports PR. One day she quit her job and ended up in Argentina for a year, where she played semi-pro soccer and also wrote the first draft of what would eventually become Perfect on Paper. She has dedicated the book to any woman who has ever been on a really bad date or realized halfway through the workday that her skirt is on backwards.
This is Maria's first book and she self-published it. We want to get the word out to how wonderful this book is so she can get it published. So...go get the book and read it! Tell your friends and family!! Get the word out!!
