“Progress, a newly released novel by Amy Queau, is now available on download on Amazon Kindle. It is the first book in a promising series of psychological romance. The novel successfully explores complex issues of what appears to be a dysfunctional relationship between shy, but smart, and funny young woman Charlene, who is trying to lose weight and gain self confidence and a handsome womanizer Jesse with a troubled past, who is used to getting his way.Tired of being ridiculed for her weight throughout her years in school, Charlene does not trust men, but hopelessly falls for Jesse, who has no remorse or empathy for women. Readers will not be disappointed to find out what hides behind behaviors of both characters but it will not be an easy ride. Unlike a traditional novel of this genre, Progress incorporates elements of suspense and psychological thriller, leaving a reader unable to put the book down. The novel has it all: sex, drugs, alcohol, lies, and betrayal. It also includes unexpected change of characters, smart humor and unconventional, eye opening scenes and experiences.

Queau is a new writer who has done a remarkable job creating characters that are not only troubled, disturbed, and haunted by their own demons but also are lovable, familiar, and recognizable to many. After all, who has never found themselves in the midst of a destructive and painful relationship where everything that could possibly go wrong, does go wrong? Will Charlene survive this experience? Will Jesse survive? Read the book and find out for yourself.” -Albina

“This story has such emotional grit. The characters are incredibly layered, yet easy to relate to. Once you start reading it’s hard to put down. This is a must read! I can’t wait for the next book.” -Amazon reader

“This book gives you flawed, honest characters and the dialogue is realistic and will make you laugh out loud. (Be careful when reading in public!) If you’ve ever been in a relationship that felt a little like an addiction, you will relate to the main characters’ attraction. As their relationship continues you can see the main characters changing and growing. You’ll root for them and become engulfed in their world.” -Angeleen

“I had the pleasure of reading this book prior to its public publication. I can honestly say that I have never read a book like this before. I know a book is written well when I can actually see what the characters look like in my head. I not only pictured Charlie, but, I could relate to her with her image and self issues while trying to get a boy to notice her for more than just a friend. I was glued to this book and couldn’t put it down. I read the book in 2 sittings. Charlie is a normal enough girl with the same insecurities that every girl feels but rarely talks about to others. You will see how Charlie finally comes to realize she deserves to be loved in the way that she loves and grows from a no-backbone girl into a self confident powerful woman who knows how to play fire with fire.

It wasn’t like every other girl likes boy, girl gets stomped on by boy, girl keeps waiting for boy. This is a must read for women of all ages.” -Jackee

“I am currently reading this book a second time! I didn’t want it to end! Thank goodness its going to be a series! Its not your typical love story at all! And I don’t read typical books. Full of intrigue and mystery between the main characters in this book. Keeps you interested throughout the whole book!” -Katie
