Cover Reveal: How We Deal with Gravity by Ginger Scott

Synopsis: How We Deal with Gravity
A novel by Ginger Scott

 When her son Max was diagnosed with autism, Avery Abbot’s life changed forever. Her husband left, and her own dreams became a distant fantasy—always second to fighting never-ending battles to make sure Max was given opportunity, love and respect. Finding someone to fight along her side wasn’t even on her list, and she’d come to terms with the fact that she could never be her own priority again.

But a familiar face walking into her life in the form of 25-year-old Mason Street had Avery’s heart waging a war within. Mason was a failure. When he left his hometown five years ago, he was never coming back—it was only a matter of time before his records hit the billboard charts. Women, booze and rock-n-roll—that was it for him. But it seemed fate had a different plan in mind, and with a dropped record contract, little money and nowhere to go, Mason turned to the only family that ever made him feel home.

Avery loved Mason silently for years—until he broke her heart…completely. But time and life have a funny way of changing people, and sometimes second chances are there for a reason. Could this one save them both?

Ginger Scott-EidenAbout:  I tell stories for a living. It’s a pretty great gig, actually. Each story has led to an amazing encounter, be it a new appreciation for the view from atop a polo horse to a deeper understanding of what it means to be the parent of a child with autism. I’ve told the stories of Olympians, comedians, doctors, teachers, politicians, activists, criminals, heroes and towns. You can check out a small sampling hereor, heck, just Google me.
While my craft has always led me down the journalism road, my desire has always been to bring to life the fictional stories in my head. I’ve wanted to write novels since I understood what they were. But then life — and probably a dash of self-doubt — always seemed to get in the way. Finally, my husband pointed out that the only thing stopping me from writing my book was actually…well…writing the damn thing. (His words.) So, I did. My book, “Waiting on the Sidelines,” is now available on Kindle. It’s a coming-of-age romance, and like the nonfiction stories I’ve told for years, I hope it, too, is honest and thought-provoking. I’m not going to lie, it’s mushy as hell. But I also think it hits on some important issues — bullying, under-age drinking, anxiety and the pressures girls face to move faster than they want to just to keep up. I hope it inspires dialogue, and I hope mothers and daughters read it together.
