Love Thyself (by Layla Stevens)

Thank you for your interest in helping spread the word about my book, Love Thyself! The ebook, a depiction of the internal struggle many LGBTQQ individuals deal with, was made available October 10, 2015. I am available for guest posts, interviews, features, and reviews for the Blog Tour on a request-basis.
This book is intended for anyone who has ever felt like someone different, knows someone who is of the LGBTQQ community, or simply is open to a good, quality read. This book is very graphic in nature and deals with other topics as well such as child trafficking.

About the Book: Warning: This book is graphic in nature. 18+ is advised. Have you ever felt like different, like you didn't belong? Kellie Kingston knows that feeling all too well. She’s not who she pretends to be, instead from the inside out, Kellie is actually Kaleb. For years, Kaleb has wanted to break free from the reins of Kellie’s lifestyle. He knows he was born in a female’s body, but with a soul of a man. What happens when skeletons are forced to be kept in dirty closets? No one should judge a person by the gender of their body, but the passions found within their heart. Will the people of Kaleb’s community ever be able to accept him for who he really is? Will Kaleb ever be free to truly love himself or will southern socialite secrets keep him hidden forever?

About the Author:
I was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma but moved to Pensacola, Florida in 1996. I have a huge family who I shocked them when I told them I was writing my first book. I have had a love a reading since I was young. Reading has always been my escape. I can read and be a princess or a warrior. Reading for me was always something magical. And I hope to pass that on to you all. I am blessed to be the mom of a little girl named Sage who is the light of my life. {I call her Olga, and she hates it} I did not give birth to her but I choose her. I am blessed with great friends who have always had my back. I have a lot to learn in this world of writing but, so far I am enjoying the ride. I have a fantastic Four that are my true loves. No names will be mentioned as they know who they are. I Love you all very much. {I didn't include alters in that comment}. I'm very opinionated and have no filter. I speak my mind without thinking of the consequences. Does this get me in Trouble? Yes, it does every single day. But I will not change. I march to my own beat. My mom says that I can be a one-man band. I am always willing to help out anyone who is in need all you have to do is ask. I never knew that writing a book would show me so much about myself. I have learned so much in a short amount of time. And I can't wait to learn more.



Reviews:
I was gifted the ARC of Love Thyself by Layla Stevens. First off let me say that Layla stepped out of her comfort zone on this book.
This book talks about several topics that have touched many lives from transgender issues, sex trafficking, bullying, abuse, murder, child trafficking, and lies. I could not put this book down, I felt like I was Kellie when it came to some issues. Despite how you feel about this type of book, this is a must read.
Kellie is a teenager that has tried several times to tell her mother that she was born into the wrong body. Kellie takes her pain out on her body in several different ways. After Kellie comes out to her parents, things have taken a dramatic turn. Kellie learns about some secrets that her parents have.
