BROKEN PEOPLE PRICE DROP TO $0.99 GET IT WHILE YOU CAN.......get it while it's a dollar, the price is going up to $5.99

Broken People is, by far, one of the most uplifting, feel good, must read books of this year, if not of this decade.

This book was written for teens, new adults, and adults. I purposely wrote it to be able to be read, enjoyed, and applied to all that red it, regardless of age. Tremendous thought and work went into developing a novel that could be read, enjoyed, and absorbed by all that read it.

The reviews speak for themselves. In three weeks, quotes began to show up on Google from the book. Reviews from around the world (5 star). Praise from churches, organizations, veterans, teens,...

While you're able, get a copy this afternoon for $0.99, I will raise the price to $5.99 as soon as 500 are downloaded. This may take a day, it may take two days.

If the free weekend is an indication, it may take a few hours.

I have already adjusted the price on Amazon, as soon as it updates, be ready and get your copy while you can....

Quotes from Broken People, by Scott Hildreth, a book you can learn to live by

There is so much in Broken People that you can apply to life. There is a reason that they are calling it a "Must Read" for teens and parents.
"True love is not something found, rather [sic] something encountered. You can’t go out and look for it. The person you marry and the person you love could easily be two different people. So have a beautiful life while waiting for God to bring along your once-in-a-lifetime love. Don't allow yourself to settle for anything less than them. Stop worrying about who you're going to marry because God's already on the front porch watching your grandchildren play." Broken People, by Scott Hildreth

22 Veterans a day commit suicide. Broken People, by Scott Hildreth is the #1 ranked Amazon book in Psychology of Suicide

 
22 veterans a day commit suicide. TWENTY TWO A DAY!!!!!!

Hello. I am Scott Hildreth, author of Broken People. It is a book written by a suicide survivor, intended to thwart the thoughts of suicide. One of the main characters is also a bulimic teen, which is a huge issue in the USA today. It is an easy book to read, and an impossible book to forget. It takes 5-6 hours to read, and when finished, without a doubt, will make more difference in your life than any other book you’ve read...without a doubt. Reviews are unanimous, and it is a 5 star MUST READ. Several readers are claiming (in their review) it saved their life.

I respectfully request that you read this book,  it isn't just a book about suicide or suicidal thoughts. It has received praise for that, because that is one of the elements in the book.  There are many other elements in the book. It is, when complete, a feel good self-help type of book. It is a book that has a little of all of us in it, because in some respect, we are all broken. It can be read on Kindle, and ipod, ipad, iphone, droid, tablet, or PC. This allows immediate reading, regardless of whether or not you have a Kindle platform. Kindle viewers are free on Amazon.com

This book is quickly becoming critically acclaimed in the three weeks it has been available. It is now being adopted by the Institute of Suicidology as a required read. Everyone that has read it and reviewed it says the same thing, they are changed. It hits hard, it hits deep, and it forces the reader to understand there is a means of recovery, and it is within. I, personally, have received therapy for my PTSD, and I can say this without hesitation, this book can do, in 6 hours, what ten years of therapy cannot.

An Indian author, Bhavya Kaushik, wrote a critically acclaimed novel that received praise a year ago: The Other Side of The Bed. He read the book a week ago, and claimed that it changed his mind, and saved his life. It's that powerful. (link below)

http://platoniceclipse.tumblr.com/tagged/Broken%20people

Imagine this: what if this book is all that I say. What if that one veteran, reading this, changes his/her mind and DOESN'T pull the trigger...

Please, take time to read the reviews. Take time to read the book. And please, spread the word. Because this book was written for one reason. To change lies.

$3.99 Kindle ebook that can save your teens life, and change yours

 
I had a girlfriend, at 21, commit suicide while I was away. I have lived with that guilt forever. Several friends and family members have done the same thing. Throughout my life, I have met, talked to, and attempted to assist anyone that appeared to be broken, as long as they were willing to help themselves. I wrote this book to show how people feel. To allow the reader to feel, truly feel and associate with the characters. This is a book of feelings. Characters are depressed, angry, sad, elated, full of fear, confused, frustrated, hysterical, jealous, and lonely.

I stopped drinking a few decades ago. In my drinking, and in my not, I have found many other broken people. I frequent coffee houses the way that most everyone else frequents a bar. In these places, I meet more broken people. My exposure to these people made me want to write this book.

This book is fiction. It is a made-up story of five people. Five people that have different problems, different lies, and different issues. It’s a story about losing. Winning. And, ultimately, finding yourself. It is told through the voices of all five people. One of these people, the main character, is an overbearing asshole. He is vulgar, he is obese, and he is always talking thrash to whoever he encounters. He hates people. But he loves to help people that he wants to. He meets people. He encounters a lot of people he doesn’t help. But he encounters these people, and their lives are changed. His mind, and his life, throughout this process, changes as well.

A suicidal girl is one. She is bulimic.

Another is somewhat of an intelligent dreamer. She is the heroine in the book.

A homosexual son of a former Marine war veteran. He can’t tell his dad he is gay.

And, the romantic. He comes from a home without a father. He has issues of his own, but, overall, he’s a great guy.

The reviews of this book are remarkable. Remarkable. Everyone agrees, this is a book that you must read. You must. It will, without a doubt, be one of the best reads you ever had. Additionally, it will have a greater, a deeper, and a longer lasting effect than anything else you’ve read or seen.

This is New Adult fiction like no other. If there was a book that you knew, literally knew…going into reading it, that it would make you cry, make you think, and make you reflect on yourself as a whole, would you read it? If this book had the most power of any other book that you have ever read. Any. If the book was grand enough to make you sit back and say, “Wow. I think I need to read that again…” and you immediately started over, would you read it?

Broken People, by Scott Hildreth is that book. You will, without a doubt see yourself in this book, in at least one of the characters, you will. It is an amazing piece, and has an amazing story to tell.

Read this book. You will not be anything but amazed.

Simply stated, you Must Read Broken People, by Scott Hildreth - A novel (about life) that changes lives

 
 
 
 
 
Broken People, by Scott Hildreth continues to get reviews that come in, at the rate of a few a day. They are all (5) star, except 3. Total, there are 32 five star reviews, and 3 (4) star.
 
Yesterdays review by 1Booklover was great. 5 stars. She stated that she was afraid that she couldn't even do the book justice in her review. She stated that it was a "Must read" for parents and teens alike.

A must read. That, of course, means that it is their recommendation that you "must" read it.
 
This book was written with the intent of any age (above 14)  being able to read it and have it effect them. It actually crawls within you, and flows through your veins like an infection. The characters are all real, raw, and full of life. The book is written from the perspective of the five characters, individually, in first person. The story unfolds, and the each character's life is somehow tied to the other. In the end, they are all tied together.
 
This book is similar to Thirteen Reasons Why meets The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
 
Be an adult, or be a teen...or anything in between, you will leave this book a different person. A richer person. It will, at minimum, leave you thinking about who you are, and what got you to this point in life. Additionally, it will have you second guessing what it is that you intend to do with the rest of your life.
 
If you are a parent of a teenagers, or have children in high school, you must read this book. You must. It will change the way you look at them. When you're done, have them read it.
 
You will be forever grateful you did.

Broken People, Scott Hildreth - A book that heals the soul (Goodreads reveiws of Broken People)

 
 
Broken People, by Scott Hildreth continues to receive praise from those that read it.
 
This book was written with the intent of not merely being a story. It was written with the hope that when people read it, they would see a little bit of themselves in the characters. It was carefully crafted to include almost all concerns that teens are currently concerned with in growing up. In school, in life, with parents, with boy freinds, college, therapy, drug use, military, money, shopping, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Snapchat, Instagram, bulimia, interracial relationships, being grounded....just about everything that happens and becomes an issue is covered in this piece of fiction.
 
Additionally, the concerns that the parents have regarding raising children are covered. Kids being with significant others that parents prohibit, acting in a manner that is prohibited, drinking, lying, depression, suicidal thoughts, eating disorders, therapy, codependency, alcoholism, teen pregnancy, photo sharing, skipping school, grades, college...all covered.
 
The story comes together with five colorful characters that are real, raw, and true to life. The story has no sugar coating. They cuss, they drink, they get tattoo's, they wreck cars, they fight, they get pregnant, they purge, they lie to their parents, they text naked selfies, they skip school, and they die.
 
The story is told in manner that we can all relate to. It is told in a manner that opens eyes, changes minds, and leaves you, at the end, wanting to live life. If there was or is a book in recent years that may make a huge impact on you, your kids, and your way of thinking, this is that book. Simply stated, if you're reading anything but Broken People, you're just not reading the right book. Read something that gives you the motivation to live life as it is intended to be lived.
 
Here are the reviews from Goodreads. Go to Amazon and see 26 more just like these. This book is remarkable.
 
 
GOODREADS REVIEWS OF BROKEN PEOPLE
 
My review may contain remarks/comments/quotes someone may find offensive, but they in no way reflect my view on the situation or person depicted. This is a review and therefore is only a reflection of my own personal feelings and emotions for the book and nothing more...

You ever read something that really...REALLY makes you think about life, your actions, your reactions, your personal feelings, your view of others?? Oh? No? There have been a few for me....and this is one of them. This story blew me away. I mean....really fucked with my emotions, my thinking, and honestly made my heart hurt a bit.

How does one begin to put their thoughts and emotions into words......let me attempt to....

"Broken people attract broken people"


The Fat Kid…""Chocolate. I need fucking chocolate."
David.... "God hates fags"
Marc...."Love that just is."
Britney..."Help. This. Girl."
Michelle"Stay human"


5 people....5 broken people.....5 beautifully broken stories...5 beatifully amazingly broken stars....Infinite messages....Many many emotions.

"Time passes, and things change. "


A heart wrenching story of broken souls finding broken souls. Broken souls mending broken souls. Broken souls saving broken souls.

Life ain't always beautiful.....Scott Hildreth's debut definitely forces us as readers to face that fact and see the ugliness, the darker side of life's dirty little secrets. He shows us that we are not alone in our fears, our insecurities...in a very raw and real way. You might not think of yourself broken, but everyone...in their own way...is somehow broken....if only a little bit.

"Knowing or admitting being broken doesn't help if we aren't conscious of just what the underlying problem is. I am conscious of
my faults, my character defects, and my short comings. I do what I do, not to mask it or separate myself from the realization, but to make my life less painless.

I found myself relating to parts of this story's messages. This book forced me to take a look at my scars and my fears. Forced me to consider others....and their scars.
I am broken in my own ways....
"Letting down others hurts me far more than letting myself down. It disappoints me greatly to disappoint others."
I have my demons...but.....
"From destruction comes creation. Beauty will rise from the ashes."


Hildreth introduces us to "The Fat Kid"……
"I ate donuts the way a 110 pound Asian eats hot dogs at the Nathan's Hot Dog National Eating Championship. Bite. Drink. Swallow. Bite. Drink. Swallow."


He pads himself, uses vulgar language, acts like a snarky asshole at times..... all to shut people out. Why would someone want to get to know an obese, vulgar, insensitive human being? It's his defense against life....against failure....against getting close....against hurt.

He takes us on his journey....and gives us his broken and scattered puzzle pieces. Although there are multiple points of view, for me the "Fat Kid" is the focal point of the story. This is his life. This is his brilliant story of his road to redemption and forgiveness. This is him overcoming his incident


"Good friends, friends that really care, are a once in a life time thing."


My heart bled a little for each character. My compassion for their situation and their heart ache grew with each page I turned. Hildreth most definitely has an amazing sense of verbal prowess and an uncanny ability to tell each character's heart breaking story in a brilliant light.

As a parent, this book was some what of a self-help inspirational piece of art. Although I am not a parent to teen....yet...God forbid my child have to go thru any of the pain depicted or face any of the same issues. I can't 100% safe guard my child from all the pain or troubles in life, but I can damn well make sure that I am there every step of the way, helping walk them thru it when I can and holding their hand.....regardless is the situation. Full fledged support and understanding.

I would without any reservations recommend everyone to read this amazing story.

"If someone makes you think, keep them. If someone makes you feel, keep them."


This one is a keeper......... (Heather S, Goodreads)
********************
Broken People embark the debut of Scott Hildreth, but while reading the book I could not make out that it was his maiden attempt. The narration was very mature and almost flawless. I was going through from one chapter to another without realizing the passage of time.
This is not a book about just one character; instead the narration has been shifted from one chapter to another. Usually, it is very hard to justify with the flow of any novel while changing the narration between chapters, but the Author has done a remarkable job in narrating the storyline from different perceptions in a single book.
The storyline revolves around a “Fat-Kid”, who runs an internet blog, helping troubled people (read Broken People), suffering from depression, peer pressure, parental problems, sexuality, eating disorders and suicidal tendencies. He started the blog after losing his girlfriend and another “incident” which happened in his life. His girlfriend committed suicide and left a letter for him, which he carried throughout his life, and with that letter he carried guilt, resentment, and the weight of this entire world. If you want to know about the other “incident”, then you have to read the book!
But his life was changed when he met another broken soul like him, who changed his life entirely. The book does not entirely revolve around just these two people; it elucidates struggles, failures, and hardships that are faced by people like us every day. It is an amalgamation of stories of broken people, not one or two, but a lot – which I believe is the best part about this book.
The author is a brilliant storyteller, a wordsmith, and the way with which he has interwoven these people together is absolutely above my comprehension. I was able to relate with almost each and every character, but it was one specific character which reflected me entirely and I cried while reading all of its narration.
It is written with utmost thoughtfulness and will leave a deep impression on your mind after a read, because of its depth. It has some hauntingly beautiful descriptions and metaphors, and is filled with breathtaking quotes. There are numerous quotes in this book which broke my heart and created a space for them inside of my soul, but this one quote stood out for me from the entire text -
“I wondered what was behind the suicide. There is always a reason, something, an event that takes them over the edge, making the pain unbearable. Sometimes it may be a combination of items that the person just can’t comprehend living with, but it’s always one thing that takes them over the edge. It’s not that they actually want to die. Generally, they just want the pain to stop.”

I admit in this review that all my life I have felt broken. Well, not entirely, but a part of me was always broken. And after reading this book I realized that I was not alone. There are people like me – damaged, broken, shattered, who are waiting for someone to heal them, for someone to put them back at their place.
I have to admit that this book broke my heart while reading. I cried so many times while reading it, that I lost the count. But it also inspired me to wipe my tears away, and to put a smile on my face. This book inspired me to look at my scars – my battle wounds, and the broken piece of my soul with my eyes full of empathy and heal them. It is one of the first times in my life when I found solace in words that are written by someone else. It was like, as if his words were healing my soul. I never felt that way before.
I can clearly admit that this is a life changing book. You may ask me now, how am I so certain about it? The reason is pretty simple. It changed my life, and that is more than enough to prove my beliefs right.
This is not just a piece of fiction, this is more than that. These are stories which will tear you apart, and heal your heart – surprisingly both at the same time. It is a kind of those “self-help” books that makes you a better person after a read. It doesn’t matter if you are a teenager, or a single parent, an Egyptian or an Indian (like me), a research scholar or a teacher – but this is a book which everyone should read, regardless of their age and the genres which they prefer to read.
I will cherish this book for the rest of my life, and I express my gratitude to the Author for writing such an honest and heart-wrenching tale. You certainly changed my life. I might be broken, but I think, I will find peace with that. And someday, one day, I won’t be this broken. No more. (Bhavya Kaushik, Goodreads)
********************
An amazing book, the story was gripping and I believe all parents should read it as well as any teenagers that are struggling with modern day life. I know of a few that this book would help and will be recommending it to them. Brill, thanks to a recommendation I was lucky to get to read this amazing book. (Kathryn Parry, Goodreads)
********************
This book without a doubt could change someones life. However it changed my view on life. Besides that it was very well written with numerous hints and hidden messages in the writing. By far one of my favorites I have ever read. (Kelli Hardyman, Goodreads)

Scott Hildreth's NA Fiction Novel, Broken People a "Must Read for Parents and Teens..."

 
 
 
Broken People, in three weeks, has received praise by all that read it. If you are a teen, young adult, or a parent, this is simply a must read book. The reviews, which range from high school kids, to grandparents, all repeat the same statements...."Simply a must read...."
 
 
If you are reading anything but this book right now, you're simply wasting time.
 
It isn't a must read book only because it is entertaining. It's a must read book because of what it reveals. What it reveals about your children that your children wont tell you. The secret thoughts and actions that your high school children  are thinking and doing that you don't know. What they want to desperately know, but are afraid to say.
 
You owe it to your children to read this book.

20 Year EMS Medic reviews Broken People on Amazon, stating "I think this book should be a must read for parents of kids 12 or older..."

 
 
As a person who lost my 16 year old daughter, an EMS medic for over 20 years and have seen the tragedies that happen to children (including suicide even ran calls on 5 friends who decided to cash in their chips), taught K-12 and actually took the time to listen to the kids and now teach at a college level.

I think this book should be a must read for parents of kids 12 and older who are truly blind or indifferent in today's society to what is going on with their kids. It would also benefit the teens out there who also think everything is OK... The key is communication and not through email, txt messaging and fancy gadgets, I'm talking face to face!!!

We are all broken people in some way or another, some worse than others and they all have a story. If people would just take time to really listen, even if it is just finding that one person like FAT KID, but someone to listen!!!!!

Read the Book & Open Your Eyes (Ears) :)
(HUGZ review on Amazon.com)
 
 
First and foremost, HUGZ, I am sorry for your losses, sorry for your pain, and sorry for the loss of your 16 year old daughter.
 
 
This, ladies and gentlemen, is why I wrote this book. To allow people to realize, to feel, and to heal. This book is so many different things. It is a self-help book. It is a great novel that tells a great story. It is a book about suicide, about loss, about love, about racism, about grief, and about healing. About hiding from who you are for a lifetime, and then opening up and becoming real. Real with the world, and real with yourself. This book has no intended audience or age group. I carefully crafted it, intending for people 15-80 to enjoy it. The reviews prove that all that read it are able to take something from it. To date, people from ages 14-75 have read and enjoyed it. This book is raw, it is real, it is an in-your-face view of what kids today are doing, what they are thinking, and what parents don't quite understand.
 
 
If you're reading a book, why not read a book that will change something in your life? Define who you are, and then allow you to realize you are not alone? Make you realize something? Take a look at your parents? Take a look at your children? Take a look at yourself? We are all Broken, and there are others out there just like us.
 
Read this book today, and open your eyes to living life just a little differently.

Broken People received three more 5 star reviews on Amazon today. The people reviewing this book continue to repeat the same type(s) of things...."this book changed my life....changes my viewpoints.."

  • I will have to say, it has been too long since I have read something and it had enough substance to keep me coming back to read more. It not only made me re-evaluate my life but it made me look at people in a whole new perspective. In addition I look at where my life is now in a whole new perspective. It seemed daunting, but now, it doesn't seem really that bad. But this is probably my kick-start on my life. I just cannot express how moved I am. I have so many spoilers to speak of it is unbearable. This book was uplifting, encouraging and helped me have a better understanding of who I am and what I really can do with my life and for my daughter. I could already feel myself appreciating who I have in my life as I was reading this book.

    I would love to say more but if I do I may ruin it for you. Now go give your life a kick-start and read this.


    Thank you Scott for the most eye opening read I have yet to come across. (Thetasteofink260, on Amazon)

I found myself relating to parts of this story's messages. This book forced me to take a look at my scars and my fears. Forced me to consider others....and their scars.
I am broken in my own ways....
"Letting down others hurts me far more than letting myself down. It disappoints me greatly to disappoint others."
I have my demons...but.....
"From destruction comes creation. Beauty will rise from the ashes."

Hildreth introduces us to "The Fat Kid"……
"I ate donuts the way a 110 pound Asian eats hot dogs at the Nathan's Hot Dog National Eating Championship. Bite. Drink. Swallow. Bite. Drink. Swallow."

He pads himself, uses vulgar language, acts like a snarky asshole at times..... all to shut people out. Why would someone want to get to know an obese, vulgar, insensitive human being? It's his defense against life....against failure....against getting close....against hurt.

He takes us on his journey....and gives us his broken and scattered puzzle pieces. Although there are multiple points of view, for me the "Fat Kid" is the focal point of the story. This is his life. This is his brilliant story of his road to redemption and forgiveness. This is him overcoming his incident

"Good friends, friends that really care, are a once in a life time thing."

My heart bled a little for each character. My compassion for their situation and their heart ache grew with each page I turned. Hildreth most definitely has an amazing sense of verbal prowess and an uncanny ability to tell each character's heart breaking story in a brilliant light.

As a parent, this book was some what of a self-help inspirational piece of art. Although I am not a parent to teen....yet...God forbid my child have to go thru any of the pain depicted or face any of the same issues. I can't 100% safe guard my child from all the pain or troubles in life, but I can damn well make sure that I am there every step of the way, helping walk them thru it when I can and holding their hand.....regardless is the situation. Full fledged support and understanding.

I would without any reservations recommend everyone to read this amazing story.

"If someone makes you think, keep them. If someone makes you feel, keep them."

This one is a keeper.........

Broken People, by Scot Hildreth recieves highest rating from famous author Bhavya Kaushik

Bhavya Kaushik's review of Broken People, by Scott Hildreth

Broken People is a moving, self-help noel of sorts. It falls within no genre, and applies to all that read it. The reviews stand for themselves, and it appears to be unanimous. Across the board, across the nation, and now, across the globe, Broken People is touching those that read it. Bhavya Kaushik, author of The Other Side of The Bed, his award winning novel about the five stages of grief, gave Broken People five stars. This is the second book that he has given this rating to.

This speaks volumes of Bhavya, and his feeling of having a novel worthy of praise, and not praising all that he reads. His application of this highest honor to Broken People also speaks volumes of this novel, and the depth that it has.

Please, take time to read Bhavya's review. It is touching, it is tear jerking, and it is real.

Broken Poeple, NA Fiction "Love that just is....."...FREE SATURDAY THE 13th of July only

Broken People quotes....lifted from the pages of Broken People, by Scott Hildreth

From the chapter "Love that just is"
Time passed. Britney filled my thoughts. Time, with her, passed at a pace much different than without her. We had been together for two months. When she was away, moments seemed like hours. Hours seemed like days, and days were like months. Together, a two hour evening easily passed in moments. I had not told her that I loved her. I had, through my actions, given every indication of my feelings for her. She had my love. I waited to see what she would do with it.

My mother’s love for my father began to make sense. Love that just was. “There’s love that’s developed,” she had told me. “And there’s love that just is.”

“Please explain,” I asked.

“Well, Marc, I believe that love can be developed. Two people meet. He thinks she is cute. She feels the same way. He asks her out on a date. She accepts. They go on a date, and nothing goes wrong. Because nothing goes wrong, when he asks again, she agrees. They go on a second date. And nothing goes wrong. And then, they go on a third date. And because nothing went wrong, they are now dating. Exclusive. Committed. And, time passes. And, to keep her convinced that he cares for her, and because his family encourages him, he buys her a ring. They are now engaged. And time passes. And they get married in June. Because that’s what everyone does. And then, because it’s what married people do, they have children. And now, they are a family. Because two people met, went on a date, and nothing went wrong.  That, Marc, is love that is developed.”

Then, she continued, “Then, there is love that just is. The love that can’t always be explained. The love that, according to those that have it, can’t ever be anything but what it is. Endless. Instead of sitting home and imagining the next ‘girls night out’, you sit at home and anxiously wait for him coming home from work. Because you can’t fathom spending an evening without him. That person doesn’t give you reason to live. That person is your life. Love that just is.”

“And Marc, when they’re gone, like your father, nothing on or of this earth can ever replace them. Ever. You choke. You try to breathe. You suffer. And time passes. It’s difficult. They provide you with your breath, your heart resides in their chest, and theirs resides in you. They are your heartbeat. And, because your heart dies with them, and you remain, you suffer a life of loving yourself. With a heart inside of you that belongs to someone else, and is incapable of loving others. Because that heart, Marc, loves only you.” - Scott Hildreth, Broken People

Quotes from Broken People, by Scott Hildreth

QUOTES FROM BROKEN PEOPLE, by Scott Hildreth
I thought for a moment about what I had said. Without you, I would be empty, and it scares me, because I've never felt this way about anyone before. Trying to make every word count, I spoke. “With you, Britney, I am as weak as everyone else I ever looked down upon before you came into my life. To be honest, I am probably way worse. Because I know I love you with a ferocity that most people will never have the capacity to feel for another person. I need you, and that necessity makes me vulnerable. The vulnerability makes me weak. I am weak for you. And, to be honest, it feels great. The thought of not having you for whatever reason is what scares me.”
Her eyes got wet. She stared into my eyes. A tear fell out of her eye, and rolled down her cheek. I reached to brush it away, and she grabbed my hand by my wrist and pulled it to her chest. She placed my palm against her breast. As my hand cupped her breast, another tear fell.
“Do you feel that Marc? That heart beating?” she asked, looking up at me.
“Yes, I do,”
“That, Marc, is yours. Remember that. And don’t be afraid. You and I will always be together. I love you,” she said, as she offered her lips to me.
“I love you back.” With my hand on her chest, I leaned into her and we kissed.

I slowly walked toward the bedroom. She followed. I looked at my watch. 8:30. “When do you have to be home?” I asked.
“11:00,” she said. We embraced. I held her. Time passed. We fell on the bed. And there we remained. I touched her face with my fingers. We kissed. She smiled. I took off my shirt and began to lie beside her.
“I like looking at your body,” she said.
“Thank you. I like looking at you, period,” I responded. She removed her shirt. She asked for help with her bra. We embraced. Our skins touched. I felt her heart beat against my chest. I felt my heart beating. Our heartbeats became one. One heartbeat. We became one. Time passed. I looked at my watch. 10:10. I stood. She remained on the bed, defining beauty.
“It’s getting close to eleven, baby. You should probably get up,” I said, looking for my shirt. I ran my hands through my hair.
“Stand right there,” she said. “Don’t move.” I stood. She reached to the side of the bed, and got her phone from her purse. She held it at arm’s length. “Don’t move,” she said.
“I heard you,” I responded. I stood. She took three photos. “I wish I could paint a picture of you,” I said.
“Do you paint?” she asked.
“No,” I responded, “But I wish I could. I would paint a picture of you right now, lying there without your shirt. I could stand here, Britney, and admire you for all of what is forever. You make me want to cry. But. That part of me is broken.”
“I know,” she said. “I know.”

Broken People, NA novel By Scott Hildreth FREE SATURDAY the of 13th JULY

Find yourself doing things that your boyfriend or husband wants you to do, only to make him happy with you? Do you ever do things only for the praise of your respective partner, sacrificing yourself for the relationship? Do you get disappointed in yourself if your partner is disappointed in you?

YOU ARE A BROKEN PERSON 

http://www.amazon.com/Broken-People-ebook/dp/B00DNMCKRI


From time to time, a novel comes along, and makes you stop. It makes you stop and second guess who you are, what you’re doing in life, with life, and for the ones you love. This is that book. Through colorfully painted characters, Broken People forces the reader to reflect on self. There will be a broken part of you in one (or all) of these characters. The characters in this book range in age from 17-28. There is deception, love, romance, suicide, high school, college, career choices, and family issues that all NA deal with. This book will make you cry, touch your heart, and have you with a lump in your throat, guaranteed.

The main protagonist, Fat Kid, is a self-proclaimed therapist who devotes his life to help people that have difficulties helping themselves, people he considers to be ‘broken’. Intentionally becoming obese in an effort to shield himself from the approach of outsiders wanting to better understand him, The Fat Kid hides behind his thick outer self. With an overbearing obnoxious attitude, he allows few people to enter his otherwise private life. Most of the people that he encounters come from his internet blog, and pose no real threat to him or to his odd lifestyle. 

When he encounters a bulimic teenage girl through his internet blog who threatens to commit suicide, he begins to reflect on parts of his life that he has spent years repressing. He continues to assist her, and many other ‘Broken People’ through his blog. When he meets an extremely independent girl who challenges him, his way of living, and his way of viewing life, he reluctantly listens. In doing so he ponders his past mistakes, his future, and ultimately he finds his true self. Additionally, the characters included in the climax of the book tell a tale of romance.

I know this novel is remarkable. The market for this particular novel is vast. I have provided one hundred printed manuscripts to persons varying in age from 17-74, and the responses were all the same, "Wow, that was unbelievable, I am going to digest it and read it again." In fact, I placed my email address in the front of the book, and more than one Amazon reader has emailed me in the week that it has been released, and said they have already read it twice.
 
I am for the last weekend, making Broken People, free to the public.

It will be free for Saturday the 13th of July

If you take time to download it, read it, and PLEASE leave a review on Amazons site.
 
 

Broken People, NA fiction novel by Scott Hildreth Ratings and Reviews


http://www.amazon.com/Broken-People-ebook/dp/B00DNMCKRI


ALL 5 STAR REVIEWS
  • Simply put, this book is a must read.
    Read this book with open eyes, open hearts and open minds. There are parts of us all in this wonderful piece. All of us are at one time or another the fat kid, the codependent, the suicide threat. If you can't identify then congratulations, you've never really lived and this book is not for you.
    But for the rest of us. The rest of humanity that is perfectly imperfect. The rest of us with sleepless nights, lost and found dreams, self loathing, love that just is.....the rest of us, well, you will get it. You will understand, that everything is worth it. Everyone needs and deserves help. Everyone needs that chance to just....stay human.
    Thank you Scott, you are a treasure. I'm looking forward to more from you. (Kate Crawford on Amazon)

  • Great book. If you haven't read this book you are truly missing out. Cover to cover one of the best books I've ever read and any age group should read it. This book hits on all the things that society deals with. Also an amazing ending that will make you speechless. Read it. (Jackson on Amazon)

  • AMAZING read! This story grabbed my attention for every character. Definitely made me look at how I perceive people around me! Written well and easy to read! Can't wait to read more from this author!! Passing along for my daughter to read! (gnatbug on Amazon)

  • I think this book can relate to many people on different levels of their lives. I think it also helps people realize that we are not alone in our feelings. It gives you a better appreciative value of your life and everyone else around you. I think one clear message in Broken People is to always take a step back and really look and get to know the situation and to see if there is something you can do or say that might help someone in their day to day situation in life. I would recommend this to all ages because it can be applied to everyone. I really think this was a great find. (M-M on Amazon)

  • This is a great and meaningful read for people of any age. There are moments of hilarity and moments of tragedy, but everything turns out okay. And the main character is very very funny, which makes the more serious parts easier to get through. (Liddeh on Amazon)
This book, in ten days, had 23 reviews. 22 were 5 star, and one was 4 star. The 4 star review still stated that it was a MUST READ.  Simply stated, this book has the capacity to change your views on life. On love. On living. It is a NA fiction tale like nothing you have ever read. It's raw. It's real.
