Thank You!

So tomorrow is the first day of the Wicked Fate Blog Tour, and it all just seems surreal to me. To think that the entire idea behind this book started in 1996, and now here it is, sixteen years later, and I'm releasing the book in two weeks. It's scary and exciting, but worth every minute.

You see, I've been asked during a few of my interviews why I write, or is there anything I'd like to say to my readers. The answer to these questions will always be the same. I write, not only because I love it, but because there was once a time in my life when writing helped me make it through what wasn't a very great childhood.

There were times when I would lock myself in my room and block out whatever bad things were going on in the rest of my house. I would open my notebook, which I still own by-the-way, and I would lose myself in a short story or a poem...anything that would take me away. So the stories that I write for you are more than just stories, they are the rescue of a young teenage alternate world. The books that I'm going to release over the next few years were my way of stepping out of my life and taking a walk in someone else's shoes. Whether that someone had it better than me, or worse than me, in so many ways leaving my world for their alternate world saved my life.

Because of how much my writing means to me, I wanted to take some time before this tour kicks off or before my book goes on sale, to say THANK YOU to everyone who has taken time out of their life to help me in any way, shape, or form. Whether is was just to repost my page on Facebook, or jumping on board the can't know how much your help means to me. I've said it to each of you over and over again because I can't seem to stress it enough. The amount of love and support I've gotten from people that I've never met in person baffles me and I love each and every one of you for it. <3

Thanks so much guys! Wish me luck! :)

WELCOME to my first official blog! Ahhh! This is super exciting for me because it took me a month to get this thing set up. If I'm being honest, I'm not even the one who did it. I want to say a BIG thank you to Katie from Amazing Books! She was sweet enough to help out little ole me. Those of you with a Facebook page should totally go like her page... Amazing Books

Okay, so the last couple of months have been insane. Self-publishing is no joke! Hopefully, it will be worth every minute of stress that I've experienced. I know my poor family and friends have suffered because of this book. There have been many days that I spent the entire day glued to my laptop...and I do mean the entire day!

Now the time has finally come! My debut novel Wicked Fate will be available November 30th! No changing this date, and yes I've had to change it many times. My final cover will be revealed in the next two weeks and then my book will be a part of a blog tour! Exciting stuff, right? I've been told that the hardest part is yet to come... I hope to be one busy girl!

Anyway, there isn't much to this little blog. I just wanted to get it out there for everyone to see. I hope you all follow me and I hope to now start following lots of blogs. I can't express how exciting this is for me. I'll keep you all updated on the crazy rollercoaster ride that's to come. Until then, thanks for the read! :)
