Women's Fiction Author Shana Mahaffey on 'Sounds Like Crazy' Virtual Book Tour Dec. 6

Join Shana Mahaffey as she tours the blogosphere December 6, 2010 to January 14, 2011 to promote her new women's fiction novel, Sounds Like Crazy (Penguin Books).

Though she doesn’t remember the trauma that caused it, Holly Miller, the main character of Shana's novel, has Dissociative Identity Disorder. Her personality has fractured into five different identities, together known as The Committee. And as much as they make Holly’s life hell, she can’t live without them. Then one of those identities, the flirtatious, southern Betty Jane, lands Holly a voiceover job. Betty Jane wants nothing more than to be in the spotlight. The rest of The Committee wants Betty Jane to shut up. Holly’s therapist wants to get to the bottom of her broken psyche. And Holly? She’s just along for the ride.

The San Francisco Chronicle says, "Mahaffey documents a realistic setting and progression of psychotherapy...both funny and poignant, Sounds Like Crazy celebrates resilience as an essential element of the human condition."

"Mahaffey has infused the book with keen insights into human nature and the complexities of life that challenge all of us," says San Franscisco Book Review. "Sounds Like Crazy is a novel that should appeal to anyone who has ever wondered about the little voice in the back of their head."

Melodie Brown, author of My Lost and Found Life, calls Sounds Like Crazy "highly original and engrossing."

Shana Mahaffey lives in San Francisco in an Edwardian compound that she shares with an informal cooperative of family, friends and five cats. She’s a survivor of Catechism and cat scratch fever, and is a member of the Sanchez Grotto Annex, a writers’ community. Her work has been published in SoMa Literary Review and Sunset Magazine. She welcomes all visitors to her website www.shanamahaffey.com, and is happy to meet with book groups in-person or in cyberspace (phone/webcam/the works).
