Riassunto: Sometimes coming of age comes late. For the past decade, Matty Bell has lived safe in a self-made monochromatic life of work-eat-sleep-survive. Living vicariously through her best friend Claire's perfect life wasn't the plan, nor her ideal. However, Matty learned long ago that it's easier to run and hide from life than to deal with the pain of the post-traumatic stress she's suffered from since being raped at sixteen. Yet on the night of her thirtieth birthday, a freak accident shows Matty a truth: run from something long enough and it will consume you. She must find a way back to her life, a life full of passion in which she can follow her dreams and is not afraid to love. When Claire announces her family is moving, she asks Matty to come too. Having grown up Navy, Matty's no stranger to picking up and starting over. However, moving half-way around the world to play nanny to Claire's children doesn't sound like the new beginning Matty yearns for. Nor does she want to leave without first confronting her fears and coming full-healing-circle. She can't let another decade slip by before she's able to trust again. Endorsed by writer/director Angela Shelton, WAITING FOR PAINT TO DRY is a late coming of age story of what it takes to find yourself again. Your purchase will raise funds for RAINN: Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (1.800.656.HOPE)

Recensione: "A beautifully eloquent painting of a life..." ~ Award Winning Writer/Director Angela Shelton

"Watching Matty Bell move from shut-down victim to triumphant survivor is a stirring experience." ~ Yona Zeldis McDonough, author of You Were Meant for Me

"This blistering psychological powerhouse of a love story will make you get up and cheer the glory of self-reinvention." ~ Mindela Ruby, author of Mosh It Up

"Lia Mack writes a beautifully eloquent painting of a life, complete with trauma that makes you cringe and hopes and wishes that break your heart. Lia reminds us that we paint the picture of our lives and even if it started dark, we can frame it with a happy ending." -- Award-winning writer/director Angela Shelton

Lia Mack's fiercely intimate Waiting For Paint To Dry portrays mental anguish so intense, it's visceral. From the reader's front row seat in this autobiographical novel, we witness heroine Matty Bell coming to terms with a past haunted by sexual abuse and family dysfunction. Meanwhile, she's learning to use humor to battle the stubborn paranoia in her present. This blistering psychological powerhouse of a love story will make you get up and cheer the glory of self-reinvention." -- Mindela Ruby, author of Mosh It Up
