How do you change the channel when reality TV turns to murder?

Personal trainer Cassidy Novak has gained fame for starring on a hit reality show. Not only does she lose and have to walk the plank, but upon returning home, Cassidy discovers she is being stalked. As her former competitors get killed off, Cassidy refuses to play by the stalker’s bizarre rules. She’s also being shadowed by photographer Zach Gallagher, who has been assigned to capture her personal moments for the local newspaper. She wants to trust Zach, but fears he may not be as nice as he seems. When the stalker forces a showdown, Cassidy must walk the plank again – this time for her life.

“Being on a hit reality show not once, but three times, made Sink or Swim really hit home for me… It was an easy read and extremely well written… I would love to see it come out as a movie one day!” Stephenie LaGrossa, owner of GiGi Restaurant & Lounge, Philadelphia PA, Television personality and fan favorite Survivor: Palau, Guatemala, Heroes vs. Villains


“After being on a reality show, Big Brother 10 on CBS and Showtime, reading Sink or Swim made me feel like I was Cassidy. People don’t ever know what happens behind the scenes. I thought it was a great read and kept me in suspense.” Michelle Costa, contestant Big Brother 10


“I thought it was a very interesting read. Not too many people will ever really know all that happens behind the scenes unless you’ve worked on reality TV shows or been a contestant. So much takes place that’s indescribable especially where travel is involved. I thought the author did a great job in giving the behind-the-scenes of the process, and various scenarios that reality TV stars may experience – during and after they’ve appeared on air.” Shawne Morgan, contestant CBS’s The Amazing Race 16, Entrepreneur


“Once again author Stacy Juba has penned a novel that is definitely not going to sink, it will do more than just swim: It will rise to the top with no lifeboats needed. Read this outstanding second novel by the author of Twenty Five Years Ago Today to find out what happens to Cassidy. Walking the plank is dangerous and sinking to the bottom even more.” Fran Lewis,
