Abby News!

Hey All!!
I hope that you have picked up Current and have enjoyed it!! Thank you, to every reader, blogger or friend who has posted about it! Your support means the world. If you haven’t gotten  get your copy here!!

Here’s a beautiful teaser from a blogger


So what’s next?? Before I started Current I was working on another story. I have FINALLY named it! It’s called Coming Home!
It’s a tad different from my other stories, but still very much me. There is a slower build between Maple and Keenan Rhys, but for very good reasons. I am about fifty percent into writing it so it shouldn’t be a huge long wait in between books.

I thought I would share with you  a quick excerpt. This story is so personal to me in so many ways. I’m writing it because I need to. It’s my therapy, and you should know, that the majority of it is inspired by true events.

This story is for me, but it’s for anyone who can relate to loving someone whose mental illness or drug addiction has spread over to your life. Writing is vulnerable, as an author we open ourselves to be judged, but we sometimes hope that our words may help others. For me, writing Coming Home is as much about healing as it is about exposing my innermost feelings.

I, in general, come off as one of the most bubbly energetic women you may ever meet, but I’ve had my fair share of it all, so this story that is so close to me is at times raw and emotion filled.

So without further ado…

Coming Home excerpt

“I mean exactly what I said. No. It’s time you stop running. It’s time for you to be home.  I know it’s hard for you to be here. I know it hurts, baby. But I can’t give you money to take off again. Your problems won’t go away with a change in location. I know everything with your Momma damaged you. I know it wasn’t fair to you, but sweetie life ain’t always fair. You’re thirty-one. It’s time to let go of the past.”

“You think you know how it felt and that I can just get over it? You don’t know a thing about what it was like to be me, growing up the way I did. You don’t know what it was like to hope above all hope that each time I saw her it would be different. That, this time, she’d get better. All I wanted was some type of normalcy, but even on good days, it wasn’t quite right. And I get it, as an adult, boy do I get it. I know that there is no such thing as normal, but maybe once I would’ve loved to have a mom who cared if I came home late, or a mom who cared if I was hanging out with the wrong crowd. It’s shaped my entire life. I’m just not sure if you could ever understand the amount of lasting damage it does when your mom is a druggie and a mental patient.”

“You honestly think that I don’t understand? I understand Maple how it is because my daughter who I raised was a drug addict and sick. You don’t have to tell me. Imagine wondering if it was something you did or didn’t do and you love that person beyond all explainable measures yet, they’re still sick. No matter how many times I had her hospitalized it was always the same. But besides having the guilt that my daughter was sick, I also had the burden of knowing what she put her daughter through. You don’t think at some point I had to learn that I couldn’t take on that guilt anymore? Because you’re right, it shapes your life. It is a dark tar that coats every part of it. It hangs out in the back recesses of your mind, that I loved someone, raised someone, taught them everything they knew and yet they couldn’t stop getting high.”

Hope you guys enjoyed, and I can’t wait to share it with you.

Current is Live!!!!


Title: Current
Author: Abby McCarthy 
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Date: February 9, 2016


One look was all it took for fifteen-year-old June Withers to fall in love with Jake Daniels. One moment was all it took for the river’s current to take everything from them.June would have done anything for Jake. The two were inseparable. He was going to run away to be with her. Then, his abusive father destroyed their happiness.

Years later, June sits down to write a review for the band Silent Tides and is floored when she comes face to face with Lucas the keyboardist. Lucas looks so familiar; the resemblance to Jake is uncanny.

June falls fast and hard for Lucas, but she continuously questions her feelings for him, unsure if they are because he reminds her of Jake or because of who he is.

Just when June thinks she’s found happiness with Lucas, she loses him too. Their new love is torn apart, clouded in a veil of deceit and lies, shattering June.

Six years pass and June feels like she finally has found peace in her life. Once again, it’s ripped wide open when she comes face to face with a love from her past.

Now it’s June who has a secret.

I remember a moment like this. One where it felt like the entire universe paused and shifted right under my feet. A moment where a truth changed everything. At this moment, I am altered.Jake Daniels is standing in front of me.

“No, I can’t believe it,” I say with a fierceness I didn’t know I was capable of.

“Listen, I know there’s some damage, but don’t worry we’ll get it fixed,” Stout says in an easy going voice.

My body is locked tight ignoring Stout, my eyes are locked hard on Jake.

“Juniper,” Jake’s voice is soft as he sets down the wrench in his hand and takes a careful step towards me. Careful like he’s afraid I’ll bolt, like he sees something in my eyes that he isn’t quite sure of. It’s an emotion he has never seen before on me; straight incomprehensible fury.

“Don’t you dare ‘Juniper’ me. You lost that right you son of a bitch!” I hiss and watch Jake freeze in his step. “You Goddamn motherfucking…” I don’t finish. The anger I feel towards him overwhelms me. I lunge for him and smack him as hard as I can. He’s taller than me by a lot and I have to reach to hit him. I claw and scratch. Kick and punch. I’m so angry.

“Twenty-five minutes from us. You’re twenty-five minutes.” I’m hysterical.

Jake lets me get hits in on him, then says, “Enough.” His voice is darker and deeper than I remember. He scoops me up and throws me over his shoulder as if I weigh nothing.

“Boss, need a few,” he says like I’m not pounding on his back and screaming.

“Put me down, Jake Daniels!”

“Feisty one huh, Jake,” Stout chuckles, then says, “take all the time you need.”

Jake walks us up a set of metal stairs and through a door. My world is flipped upside down when he rights me and deposits me on the edge of a desk, then wraps his arms tightly around me, including my arms so that I can’t move.

“Calm down, June,” he says.

I breathe in and out, deep breaths, trying to calm myself. I won’t look at Jake. I can’t. I’m afraid that if I do, I’ll get drawn right back into him. My eyes are trained on a certification award on the wall behind the desk. My body is rigid. I try not to think about the fact that I am in Jake’s arms and his beautiful masculine scent is surrounding me. Instead, I focus on my behavior and try to get it under control. I’ve thought about how I would be if I saw him again, but no way did those thoughts include me going batshit crazy.
