Where GCC stands for the Girlfriend’s Cyber Circuit blog tour.
I was part of it a few years back, but then went things slowed down for me, I gave my spot up so others could have their turn. But now I’m BAAAAAACK, baby! And I’m touring my first Girlfriend, author, Denise Jaden, who’s written an incredibly intriguing book, Losing Faith.
by Denise Jaden
A terrible secret.
A terrible fate.
About the book:
When Brie’s sister, Faith, dies suddenly, Brie’s world falls apart. As she goes through the bizarre and devastating process of mourning the sister she never understood and barely even liked, everything in her life seems to spiral farther and farther off course. Her parents are a mess, her friends don’t know how to treat her, and her perfect boyfriend suddenly seems anything but.
As Brie settles into her new normal, she encounters more questions than closure: Certain facts about the way Faith died just don’t line up. Brie soon uncovers a dark and twisted secret about Faith’s final night…a secret that puts her own life in danger.
“Strong in its characterization…satisfying…a thoughtful read.”
“This book is wonderful. I stayed up way too late because I couldn’t put it down. Tessa is one of my all-time favorite characters – fascinating, nuanced – she lived for me, jumped right off the page. Terrific read!”
– Janet Fox, author of Faithful (Penguin/Speak, 2010) and Get Organized Without Losing It (Free Spirit Publishing, 2006)
“Suspense, religion, romance, teenage angst—this book has it all and it is all well done. Losing Faith was an amazing read that hooked me in the beginning and when it was done I was well-satisfied with the conclusion. Great from start-to-finish!”

Hey! She lives just up the road from me, in a manner of speaking. And her bio is definitely intriguing, no? But of course, being me, I had a few more questions to ask. Okay, I totally bogarted the pop quiz from my own bio with a couple of embellishments. So here we go:
Dark or milk chocolate?
Definitely dark. The darker the better. 70% cocoa or higher preferable.
Thin or thick crust pizza?
Hmm. I don’t really care. Pizza is good no matter which way you slice it.
Lakes or oceans?
Oceans. I love the vastness of them and the waves are calming. Plus, I’ve always wanted to learn how to surf.
Ben & Jerry’s or Häagen Dazs?
When I was growing up, we didn’t have Ben & Jerry’s in Canada, so I’m a Haagen Dazs girl. Though, I admit, I love Cold Stone Creamery above all else. (Mmm… Cold Stone…)
Lady Gaga or Katy Perry? (If neither, then who?)
I hate music questions. I have very eclectic tastes in music and I fear if I answer one way people will assume generalizations about my musical tastes. I plead the fifth! (Barb’s note: Oh, I totally get this. Says the woman with over 13,000 entries in her iTunes library…)
GLEE or Vampire Diaries? (Or whatever show currently has your fancy)
We don’t get any channels at our house so I’m totally not up on current TV. I have a set of Friends DVD’s that I can’t get enough of though.
Ten or Eleven? (For the Doctor Who fans– if you’re not one, then has there ever been a show or film or book that turned you into a hardcore fan?)
Nope. Not a hardcore fan of anything, but I have lots and lots of films and books that I love. Some favorite movies: The Matrix, Princess Bride, When Harry Met Sally. Favorite authors (including all their books): Sarah Dessen, Sarra Manning, Laurie Halse Anderson
Coke or Pepsi?
Diet of either. I’m not picky.
Growing up, astronaut or supermodel?
Probably supermodel. More likely actress.
Final question: If your book had a theme song, what would it be?
Ugh. Another music question! Actually, a good friend of mine, musician Jerrica Santos, wrote a song about my book called Losing Faith. It will be released to the world soon. Stay tuned…
Thanks so much, Denise and we’ll definitely be checking out Losing Faith!
