Alysha Mendez's 'The Waiting Room” To Be Released, 7/1
Jude and Nina share a raw, unflinching love that is the envy of the people around them. That is, until Jude dies and wakes up in the Waiting Room, surrounded by other souls who are waiting to pass over into their next life. Unlike the other souls in the Waiting Room, Jude's name is never called by the mysterious "receptionist". He waits, watching Nina out of giant windows. He's waiting for her. What is this place? How long will he wait? And what will happen when and if Nina does join him? This is the premise of The Waiting Room, a story of not just love, but of faith, predestination, friendship and self-actualization.
