I’m bringing you lots of exciting news this week. First, the sequel to Memoirs Aren’t Fairytales is done! Scars from a Memoir was submitted to my publisher last night and we’ll be starting the creative process very soon. Once I have a cover and a release date, you’ll be the first to know.
A big THANK YOU to my beta readers: Susan Singer, Matthew Merrick, Melissa Roske, and James Watson. I couldn’t have done this without you guys. My thoughts and words can be a bit of a mess sometimes, but you made them shine. Michele Esterkes, your support made this novel possible.
Thank you to all my readers who take the time to contact me on my Facebook page, Twitter, and through email. I save all your notes and reread them for inspiration. I also listen to your feedback, which brings me to my second announcement. Lots of parents have mentioned they would like to have their kids read Memoirs Aren’t Fairytales, but the story is too dark. Not anymore. I’m currently editing the novel, and we’re going to be releasing a second version that’s appropriate for young adult (YA) readers. I’ve enlisted a team of beta readers who are parents, an elementary teacher, and guidance counselor. With their help, this novel is going to be suitable for your kids’ eyes.
To my followers: thanks for your continued support. I’m grateful for the lovely words you share with me and I’m thrilled to begin a second (and third!!) journey with all of you. xx
