I need to clear up some confusion going on. Today some gossip sites reported that Taylor Swift and Toby Hemingway are supposedly dating after working together on the set of her upcoming music video for “A Rose to the Fallen”. Taylor’s song is NOT called “A Rose to the Fallen”. It’s called “Mine”. A few days ago, I posted about Toby and Taylor in her upcoming video (Edit: the post has been removed). I also mentioned my book A Rose to the Fallen because Toby was the inspiration for it. In my post, I specifically said the article about her video shoot doesn’t say what song the video is for. I think someone read my post and screwed up the information about her video. They posted it, and in turn, many other sites just copied and pasted what they reported without verifying if the information was true.
Later today I’ll be mailing a copy of A Rose to the Fallen to Toby Hemingway. Years ago, Toby was my muse. I’m sending him my book as a thank you. He inspired me and if it wasn’t for him, I never would have written my first novel or published my first book. I’m excited and nervous at the same time about sending him the book. If there’s anyone whose opinion I value the most… it’s his. I have to give thanks to his lovely mother Annamaria Hemingway for helping me get the book to him. She’s so nice. Oh, and she’s an author too. Her book is called Practicing Conscious Living and Dying. I actually own a copy myself. You can visit Ms. Hemingway’s website by clicking below.
