Jade Alyse Writes

Read: Excerpt of "Kiawah"!

With the unexpected success of "Kiawah" on the iBookstore yesterday, what better time than to show a little bit of what it's all about. Throughout the novel, I combined a little bit of what I loved best in life: music, art and love.  Without these three things, I don't think life would be nearly as worth it.

In this excerpt I pulled inspiration from the classical Arabic tale: Layla and Majnun and listened to Nayanna Holley's On Love and Fear extensively.

The concept of star-crossed lovers driven to a semblance of madness by their feelings and the inevitably of their proximity to each other has always fascinated me.

Enjoy! :)
