First 100 of AC Moyer’s ‘Size Zero’

By Rhiannon Levengood

Admittedly, I’m a very slow reader. I’ve never been sure if I’m just physically slow at reading or if it’s somewhat intentional. I pay attention to details. My mind paints a scene as the words provide each stroke. An extremely detailed novel gives itself a film and takes me awhile to digest.

Which is why I’m only 100 pages into
Size Zero by AC Moyer.

But the first 100 pages have created such a story already that I have to write about it.

When I greeted Moyer at BookCon 2017, she was as mysterious as the black novel she was selling. Her booth was decorated in mirrors, casting back a distorted image of passerby. I had no idea the symbolism it reflected from her book until I started reading it.

Size Zero is a crime novel that is centered around the world of fashion and modeling. The story follows Cecil LeClaire, an heir to his mother’s modeling empire, as he discovers the truth to his childhood girlfriend Annabelle Leigh’s disappearance many years prior to her death. The story itself has depth that I haven’t experienced from a novel in quite some time. It’s well thought out, so far leaving no loose ends fraying, but just unraveling enough to keep the pages turning.

I am only 100 pages into this captivating story, but every chapter is as riveting as the previous, pulling me in deeper with every page. The only story I can compare it to is Henning Mankell’s Wallander saga, which happens to be my favorite crime series. I feel as if I’m diving into another one of his novels, and I could not be happier.

Stay tuned for a full length review, but if you’re interested already, you can preorder AC Moyer’s novel here! Be sure to follow Moyer on social media for updates!

Ty Herndon’s Love & Acceptance Event Beams with Pride

By Paula Kunatee

The calendar can tell us we are in the year 2017, but it could feel like you’re trapped in a different lifetime when you don’t feel comfortable being who you are. Coming out in 2014, Grammy nominated, Ty Herndon has become a voice in the LGBTQ community. Fortunately for Ty, he says he felt support from family, friends, fellow musicians, as well as fans. Just in time for Pride month, the country singer wanted to shine a light on the LGBTQ youth and the importance of Oasis Center’s Just Us program to help teens transition into a healthy adult.

During the red carpet of the 2017 installment of Ty Herndon’s Love & Acceptance, the stars rolled in and we got to hear how Herndon’s  journey has affected not only the industry, but their own paths as well. Among those guests was The Voice star, Billy Gilman, who shared how Ty’s story gave him the strength to come out. The co-host, CMT’s Cody Alan, recalls how he struggled in the business with his sexuality, but you couldn’t tell that was the case as he walked hand in hand with an electric smile alongside his partner, Trea Smith.

The night was filled with a massive amount of positivity, great music, and incredible stories!
