I'm so excited to be re releasing this book. It's a very important one to me. Not just because it was the book that finally hooked my agent but because it was one of those books that just had to be written. The idea popped into my mind about a woman who had everything but felt empty. When Frankie stumbles across three boys, squatting in her deceased aunt's home, she learns what the meaning of fulfillment is. She starts to find herself by loving the boys and her guarded but hot next door neighbor, Ryan.
All of the characters in this one spoke so easily to me. Frankie, who just wanted to find her "home". Ryan, who wasn't sure what life was without baseball. And each of the boys who dealt with life's blows in their own ways yet relied on each other. The book, ultimately, is about family. And how, it's not always the one you're born into that has your back. Or your heart.
I hope you enjoy it.
Happy January! I haven't been around much, despite the fact that I have been glued to my computer. I've been working very hard on several projects and trying to get back into the swing of the full time working/momming/writing routine. Every time I start to complain about being "too busy", I think of two things:
1. How insanely cool is it that I am "too busy" with writing and editing and galley proofing and connecting online?
2. In Mindy Kaling's book, she talks about how it's a generational thing-- that her parents never complained about being 'too busy' even though they worked crazy hours, had insane commutes, and raised their kids.
So, I try to be grateful that I'm busy, even when it feels overwhelming, because I'm busy doing something I love.
What have I been working on? I have been making sure that both THE BAD BOY NEXT DOOR (Kendrick Place Series #2) and CAUGHT LOOKING are ready for you to read in March and April respectively.
I've been working on book 3, the final book in the Kendrick Place Series. I've also been working on the first book in my new series coming from Entangled in Fall 2017; the "For You" series.
I'll be doing a bunch of fun things leading up to the release of THE BAD BOY NEXT DOOR. Starting with an advanced cover reveal for my newsletter subscribers and a giveaway. So if you haven't signed up, do that and you'll get to see the sweet cover for Wyatt Daniels' story. You know you want to see it. I'll make it super easy and put the sign up below.
