THE ART OF FAKING IT: NEW COVER <3

hey everyone,

how’s your Saturday going so far? i’ve got a couple deadlines in a few days and instead of doing that, i’m rewatching Modern Family. (as if i didn’t finish it like three days ago lmao). I just wanted to make this post to let you all know about my cute (new!!!!!) cover for THE ART OF FAKING IT

(Oh, and I’ve updated the covers for my poetry books, LOST AND FOUND and REALITY as well!!)

For those of you that don’t know, THE ART OF FAKING IT is my New Adult/early twenties novel about a British-Bangladeshi young woman called Sabrina Ahsan, who’s still mourning the end of her last relationship, when she’s introduced to this hot, intelligent and charming teacher-slash-artist, Daniel Fitzgerald. They hit it off, sparks fly, but moving on, of course, is never as easy as we hope it to be. Throw in a very culturally and religiously traditional parents and things are bound to get a little complicated, amirite?

Basically — it’s a very cool book with great writing, if I say so myself and I think you should all definitely buy it! (Pls, the cover is gorgeous!)

This is the newest cover for THE ART OF FAKING IT

“Sometimes it’s better to just fake it than be honest. It’s safer for everyone.”

Getting over a break up is hard, but it’s even harder when you’re still in love with your ex.

It’s been nearly two years since Sabrina’s relationship met its end and she’s still mourning what-once-was and what-should’ve-been. It doesn’t seem to get easier, even though everyone has been telling her that it will and all she needs is to start dating again.

She knows they’re right. She needs to move on.

So when one of her friends suggests she hook up with Daniel Fitzgerald, a charming, handsome teacher by day, and artist by night, she agrees, thinking maybe this is just what she needs.

But letting go of the past is a lot harder than she anticipated. Pair that with a sprinkling of mistakes and consequences rushing to the surface, the brown girl guilt from choosing to step out of a house immersed in cultural traditions and the inability to move on from what she’s lost, and this dating journey becomes more than just a casual, no strings attached situation-ship.

After all, faking it only gets you so far, and Sabrina can’t run from her feelings forever.
