Hard Focus by MariaLisa deMora Release Blitz


Where do you place your trust when your own instincts betray you?

Connie Rowe is a receptionist at a respected legal firm. She’s a little bit sassy, a lotta bit happy, has good friends, and is adored by her neighbors.

Life is good.

She’s got a boyfriend she enjoys spending time with. He can be a little intense, but he’s got a lot going on in his own life, sorting out his young daughter and nightmare of an ex.

Life is grand.

“Trust your gut.” That’s what Connie’s police officer father told her often, training his daughter to believe in herself through the years.

But… what happens when you can’t? When your intuition lies?

What happens when things come into Hard Focus?

This is an intense page-turner, a gut-punch twist-filled story about a woman who has confidence in herself, believes she's a good judge of character, and has filled her life with people she can trust. She's right, but she's also very, very wrong. Readers will have a time of it trying to decide who to watch closest.

Connie is loving her life. She has an amazing job and great friends. When she meets a great guy in a bar, she suddenly has a relationship too. What she doesn't comprehend is how she is an instant mom too.

Connie has training that most don't. With a police officer as a father, he taught her to always trust herself. But with that trust, sometimes comes almost too much trust. When signs start to show that her relationship might not be what she thought, Connie has to decide if her instincts have led her astray.

This is a tale of twists and turns you won't see coming. There are real life issues within this short story and feelings are evoked that might not be too comfortable. The author, deMora did an amazing job at laying everything out. I would be interested in more of the books by deMora.




Raised in the south, MariaLisa learned about the magic of books at an early age. Every summer, she would spend hours in the local library, devouring books of every genre. Self-described as a book-a-holic, she says “I’ve always loved to read, but then I discovered writing, and found I adored that, too. For reading… if nothing else is available, I’ve been known to read the back of the cereal box.”

A hockey fan, hiker, gamer, and single mom of a special needs son, she embraces her inner geek and has been working in the tech field for a publishing company for a couple decades.

Music is a driving passion, and she says, “I love music of nearly any genre — jazz, country, rock, alt rock, metal, classical, bluegrass, rap, hip hop… you name it, I listen to it. I can often be seen dancing through the house in the early mornings. But I really, REALLY love live music. My favorite thing with music is seeing bands in small, dive bars [read: small, intimate venues]. If said bar [venue] has a good selection of premium tequila, then that’s a plus!”
