A new riveting fiction novel that will surely captivate readers from start to finish

Xlibris, the print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of The Stuff We’re Made Of. Authored by Linda D. Whitlock, this book tells a captivating story filled with romance, pretense, intrigue, perseverance and the measures of true friendship.

The Stuff We’re Made Of opens with the story of Lydia Deanne Brown, the newest designer of Helena Interior Designs, Inc. who was assigned to the Edwards project, the biggest account the firm had landed to date, because of her vast expertise and experience. Lydia has done all the hard work and laid the groundwork for this multimillion-dollar project for their client, Kyle Edwards, to approve her design plans. Now Lydia was at the stage of the project that really gave her the thrill—seeing her design proposal come to life, until Helena Barnes, the president and founder of the company, makes an unexpected announcement to transfer the lucrative project to Kameron Tyndall, the senior, but most inexperienced designer of the firm, who also happens to be the mayor’s daughter. This decision threatens Lydia’s career expectations at Helena Designs. Adding insult to injury, the Edwards account was going to bring in a sizeable commission that Lydia deserved and earned but instead of being rewarded for this achievement, Helena decided that it was time for Kameron to step up and reap the rewards.    

While Helena attempts to manipulate Lydia into helping Kameron on the Edwards project, Lydia makes a crucial career move to leave the company and open her own company. This shatters Helena’s plans for Kameron and causes Kyle Edwards to question if Helena Designs is the right company to handle his project... The story further takes readers through the progression of Helena’s hideous plan to get even with Lydia and teach her a lesson by plotting to destroy her professional future; the story of Lydia’s three other female friends—Chrystal, Sherrie and Elise—and their interconnected lives, along with their romantic escapades and diverse exploits; and to the surprising ending that would reveal and give readers a better understanding of The Stuff We’re Made Of.
