About a Book: Escorting Mr. Colburn By Marlena Owens

I just published a book called Escorting Mr. Colburn. It is available on Amazon in paperback and eBook form. Many of my friends and family have purchased it. I can’t wait to hear what they have to say about it!

I got the idea for this book a few years ago but didn’t get the courage to finally finish it until recently. I would like to compare publishing your first book to riding home from the hospital with your first baby. You don’t know what to expect, you feel vulnerable, and you’re responsible for what you’ve created. I have always enjoyed writing but it took me gaining confidence in myself before I could share it with others.

About the book:

Justine lives in New York City with her brother, Sam. Their parents just passed tragically a few months before in a bus accident. As if life can’t get any harder, Sam’s school tuition is due in one month. With the help of her energetic and unique neighbor, Wanda, Justine explores her options. She doesn’t have any hobbies and isn’t very crafty. However, she knows the city like the back of her hand. Then she had the idea to start a personal travel agent business. Justine would accompany tourists to their destinations and be their personal tour guide. Yet, when she places her ad, she only gets one reply. Little did she know, that’s the only reply she would need!

Come on a journey with me, exploring the 3 most well-known destinations to visit in New York City!

This novel explores the process of grief and how our loved ones speak to us even after they’re gone. It also digs into living with regret after the death of a loved one. Lastly, this novel shows that one can find beauty in moving on. I hope you enjoy it.
