Gosh, it seems like it's taken forever to reach this point. My newest book contract was approved back in April! We thought we were just three months from publication. But our timeframes changed, and we haven't had details nailed down until now. So, for a special treat, I'm publically outing myself as a bi-accent-ual speaker. You can watch this announcement which was sent to my newsletter subscribers earlier, in either the American or the Kiwi (New Zealand) accent below!
So now I can finally tell you: My next book (completely un-attached to the Every Ugly Word world) is coming February 23rd, 2016! The title is Dark Touch and I can't wait for you to read it!
A girl whose touch reveals her deepest emotions—her hurt, pain, and self-loathing—falls in love for the first time. But it may not be enough to save her from years of physical and psychological abuse at the hands of her father.
I think Tully (pronounced TUH-lee) is the toughest character I've ever written. We've spent so many hours together this year that right now, she feels like my best friend. She's like a good quality chocolate candy--hard on the outside, soft in the middle. And her soon-to-be-boyfriend, Christian? Ahhh.... *Swoon* But no spoilers! You'll get to meet them both later.
Closer to Christmas my newsletter subscribers will receive an excerpt, and some fun behind-the-scenes facts. I may even have some early giveaways. We'll see. For now, I just wanted to share my excitement with you that there is another book coming, that my publisher has been amazingly supportive in getting this story ready for general consumption (they don't come out that way first time!), and that I'm already working on the next project too. So, folks, we are GO FOR LAUNCH!
DON'T MISS OUT! If you'd like an early sneak-peek at Tully's story and to be a part of telling the world about her book's arrival (around the time of release), jump into my SUPER SECRET SIGN UP and send me your deets! We'll be having a ton of fun next February with a special gift from me, announcements, giveaways, deleted scenes, and all sorts of other secrets that will only be available to that group. So thanks in advance for being a part of it.
I'll have more information, a cover reveal, and giveaways coming later in the year!
