About this author

Ashly Lorenzana was born in October of 1987 in Portland, OR and has remained living in the state ever since. After spending most of her childhood in a small town along the Oregon Coast, she returned to Portland in 2005 at the age of seventeen. Shortly after the move, she discovered that her mother was working as an escort in order to support her addiction to crystal meth. Ashly was also an addict, and soon became curious enough to try her luck in the now extinct Craig's List "erotic services" section.

For the next five years, Ashly worked as an independent escort in the Portland area. She is now an established "provider" of adult experiences, with outstanding reviews on national forums and review boards such as The Erotic Review and TNA Boa...more

A while back I published a post about how you can get more book reviews by loaning your Kindle book to readers who are interested in free review copies. Today, I’d like to take a closer look at one ebook lending site in particular:

I signed up for the site a long time ago and my guess is that they are amassing more users at this point in time, as I’ve recently seen a considerabl...

Trying is Lying by Ashly Lorenzana
" This book is a great read! "
My sadness is beautiful. It infuses everything I do. It is at the core of my identity and always has been, just as happiness is in some people. I refuse to be told that it's a flaw. I will not mute it with medications for the sake of society. I will hold it close to me and celebrate it rightfully while the rest of the world fails to see it for what it is and it will be their loss.Ashly Lorenzana
What is the point of our lives? There isn't any. I can't seem to decide how much horror and how much joy lies within that simple truth, but I know it is both of those things at once.Ashly Lorenzana

All I Know by Ashly Lorenzana
" A sobering reality of quotes that will both force you to see the truth but also reflection. While some are a little abrupt, the constant is truth in words.

An interesting concept in parallel to the lies that we may tell ourselves.

A quick, easy read... " Read more of this review »

“It's okay to disagree with the thoughts or opinions expressed by other people. That doesn't give you the right to deny any sense they might make. Nor does it give you a right to accuse someone of poorly expressing their beliefs just because you don't like what they are saying. Learn to recognize good writing when you read it, even if it means overcoming your pride and opening your mind beyond what is comfortable.”
Ashly Lorenzana

“You know all that sympathy that you feel for an abused child who suffers without a good mom or dad to love and care for them? Well, they don't stay children forever. No one magically becomes an adult the day they turn eighteen. Some people grow up sooner, many grow up later. Some never really do. But just remember that some people in this world are older versions of those same kids we cry for.”
Ashly Lorenzana

“We judge others instantly by their clothes, their cars, their appearance, their race, their education, their social status. The list is endless. What gets me is that most people decide who another person is before they have even spoken to them. What's even worse is that these same people decide who someone else is, and don't even know who they are themselves.”
Ashly Lorenzana

“When someone shows you who they are believe them; the first time.”
Maya Angelou

“I don't want anyone who doesn't want me.”
Oprah Winfrey

“When you allow a person's words to upset you, you're giving away your power.”
Phillip C. McGraw, Dr. Phil Getting Real

“Assumptions are the termites of relationships.”
Henry Winkler

“The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.”
Ernest Hemingway, Men Without Women
