A Friendship's Love by Melanie Corona - Book Tour, Promo, Excerpt, Giveaway

Filled with the dreams of youth, and surrounded by the love of her family and friends, Payton Martin’s world was simple. When someone closest to her is cruelly betrayed and unjustly sent away, life afterwards proves never to be the same for everyone involved, beginning a series of events beyond her control. Somehow, through the years that follow, Payton manages to deal with the heartache of loss and rejection, all while balancing her new situation, and becoming her own woman.  
Finally settled into a life that she could only once imagine, Payton is content; especially when the promise of love is presented by someone she admires and trusts. Nothing ever goes to plan, though. Once again she is faced with surviving circumstances, and choices others make on her behalf. This time, they ultimately take her across the ocean, to settle in a harsh new land.

“Surely you can’t remember, Will,” I said. Then, from across the room I heard Ashleigh say,

“William Townshend, you couldn’t possibly remember which dress of Payton’s that was!” All sound quieted at Ashleigh’s remark, and now everyone was paying attention to what was transpiring between us.

“Those sound like betting words, Lady Ashleigh.” Will bent down and held out his good hand for Grace to take.” Miss Grace, would you please come out from behind Lady Payton’s skirts and show me that beautiful new dress of yours?” Then, he cocked his head and said “Please.” Gracey placed her hand in Will’s, and let herself be pulled away from me to stand in front of him.

I was born in Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia, and raised in Alice Springs (the very center of the country). I have always loved reading and telling "tall tales" and wrote poetry all the time. My greatest influence was my grandpa Majid who kept us entertained all the time with his stories, music and passion for writing.  
I didn't tell anyone I wrote when I started because I was to shy, I have no idea why I was like that. I don't care now, I have stories to tell and I want to share them. I am not, and never will profess to be an awesome writer, but I will try to entertain, while bringing to life the history of my country, one page at a time.
