The story starts at Ava's dad's beach house just like in the song. It was also inspired by Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher because I found this post of hers about their romance, and how she would never have thought when they were filming "That's 70 Show" that he would be the love of her life. Plus, he says all kinds of sweet things about her, too. It all came together in my head about dreams and missed chances.(less)

Holiday songs, anyone? Or a holiday cover ?

Did you catch DAMAGED DESIRES this week? I can’t believe Dani and Nash had such a good turnout. If you bought it or downloaded it on Kindle Unlimited, thanks for showing up for them (and me!). I can’t tell you how happy it makes me knowing Dani and Nash are finding a place in people’s hearts.



Believe it or not, I’m going right from Damaged Desire’s release into prep for My Life as a Holiday Album w

L.J. Evans Writing about people who live life resiliently is what I love to do. But it's hard in the real world to accept ourselves for all our visible and invisible scars. I hope you find a way to love yourself a little better today.
