Watching the Sky Cry by Julie Hartnett is LIVE! Promo tour and review!!

New from J.B. Hartnett!

Watching the Sky Cry is a beautifully written,
emotional story and is NOW AVAILABLE
& Free on Kindle Unlimited!

Ten years is a long time when you’re thirty-two. We’d seen our share of ups and downs, but I could honestly say, they were mostly up. That’s the thing about happiness though. It lulls you into a false sense of security.

Neither one of us ever thought we’d ever be touched by crippling loss or immeasurable grief. But not all stories have a happy ending, and I knew, better than anyone, that sometimes, one of you won’t make it till the end. One of you has to go first. And one of you will be left behind to pick up the pieces.

That one is me.

But starting over isn’t what I thought it would be. I need escape from the memories that plague me, remind me. So I went back to where it all began. To the town where I was born. To the place whose beauty could pierce my pain. Where I experienced my first kiss, where I fell in love, where a man was my earth. And I…

I was his sky.


Julie has the unique ability to transform sets of words into writing that is poetic. This novel is much deeper than some of her last release in the Beachy Brides series, but is no less amazing. 

The story follows Riley, as she suffers a one tragedy after another. Losing her first love, and the life she expected, throws her in a bit of a tailspin. When she finally picks herself up and decides to work her way back to a life she recognizes, she returns to her Aunt and Uncle's home, a place she visited each summer while growing up. Once there, she reconnects with Quentin, her first love. 

The story was a bit challenging for me to follow at first. I was confused as to how her husband "left" and kept asking myself "where did he go? What happened?" Of course, I should have known to trust Julie and know that she reveals things when ready. When Riley was ready to tell us. 

The novel is about having more than one true love, defining what is a true love, finding yourself before you can find someone else, and going back to start over. It's tragic and hopeful, and well written. It's one that will break you heart, and put it back together. 

About the Author:

Julie is a southern California native, a fan of a really good story (preferably a romance with a happily ever after), really good pie (preferably pumpkin)and copious amounts of coffee (preferably Folgers).

She has always enjoyed writing and at one time thought she might be a singer/songwriter. The 'writer' part is that one that stuck.

Julie is obsessed with Pi...the equation and the food. She's allergic to cats, cantaloupe and hates mushrooms. So if you ever want to give her a gift, those are out for sure.

She currently lives with her romance hero husband and two boys in Melbourne, Australia.
