Followers, Favoriters, and readers!

It is with great excitement that I write to you today! I must apologize for such a prolonged silence. For years since I wrote my last story on here, I've continued to receive tremendous support, getting emails and questions about 'when are you uploading your next story?' These past few years I wrote and wrote, and edited and edited, spending hours upon hours in coffee shops and diners, clicking away on my computer. The stories I have published on here have been a fantastic start for me. I know in my author bio I hinted at a new story, and it is done!

It was you all who encouraged me to write and pursue something real and profitable. So many of my readers told me "this could be a real book', so... I made one.

It is my absolute honor to share that I have published my first book! It was you all that inspired me to do it! The positive comments on my works always pushed me to become a better writer. Through your support, I've been able to publish my very first work, Thorns Before Roses, on kindle! You can buy the ebook today! I'll insert the link to the book at the bottom on this message. I just wanted to let you all know since many of you have been on this journey with me since day one.

A huge thanks to all my followers, readers, and supporters, I do this for you! If you've enjoyed my other works, get ready for the very best one yet!

Thorns Before Roses synopsis:

Josie Virginia's difficult past has made her tiptoe through life. Always an optimist, she tries her best to pick the flowers, not the weeds… until one very attractive, very mean, very relentless weed shows up for tutoring in the campus library.

On the surface, Matthew Steel is nothing more than a self-absorbed asshole; but there's two sides to every story, and his reveals that deep down he may just be that same broken boy he was so many years ago.

His saving grace has scars of her own, ones she's terrified to reveal. Honesty is a cure buried deep under their insecurities, and they'll have to make it through the thorns before they can discover the roses.
