My NEW book in the "Elena Ransom" series comes out on Thursday!! I just can't believe it. In 3 short days, I'll be an author of a trilogy. And I'm not even DONE YET! I still have 3 more books to finish over the next 3 years.
Here's the beautiful cover:
Elena Ransom and the Unexpected Disclosure
Last Friday, I visited another middle school to talk with 7th graders about the writing and publishing process. I had such a great time, and these kids asked me so many great questions I was actually even more excited than normal.
Also, I'm VERY excited to announce that I'll be joining several authors from the Cumming Writer's Club at Another Chapter Bookstore this Saturday from 11am-2pm for a book signing. Come get your copies of "Elena Ransom" signed in person.

Please come out to visit with LOCAL AUTHORS this SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 3!!
My week was all set! I was going to speak with 3 different middle school classes about being an author and promote the fact that my third book is being released on November 1. Then, alas, tragedy.
Well, not a huge tragedy, but both my kids came home with fevers from school. I had to cancel 2 out of my 3 schools. It was really hard for me to not go. Don't get me wrong. I love staying home with my kids and I'm happy to do that when they're sick because a lot of parents aren't able to have that kind of freedom with the work they do.
But still, it was really hard not to go share my passion and promote my books. Things were looking pretty bleak, but then I got a call that my bags were in...
I do a raffle with the groups I speak with each time. I've raffled off books and tshirts, and now I have these bags. I LOVE THEM!
So, I'm crossing my fingers for healthy kids so that I can go visit my next 6th grade class on Monday. Keep on trying!!
Actually, I really shouldn't say "out with the old, onto the new" because that's not how I feel. It's really more like "put aside what I love and try something new" because that's how I feel about the art for my #ElenaRansom series.
But I've tried something new and honestly I really LOVE it. So, here's my big cover reveal!
After weeks of working with a new artist to get all the details just right, I have NEW covers for "Elena Ransom and the Firebird Unit" and "Elena Ransom and the Catalan Atlas" PLUS my BRAND NEW BOOK "Elena Ransom and the Unexpected Disclosure" will be out on November 1st.
This process hasn't been easy, but I do feel it was necessary. I can't wait to show you the #ElenaRansomandtheUnexpectedDisclosure cover later this week!
My BIG ASK will come on November 1st. I'm asking all my family, friends, and Elena Ransom fans to purchase all 3 books on AMAZON on the same day. Purchasing on the same day will boost my Amazon ratings. In addition, since the new books will be on new Amazon pages I'm asking everyone to re-post their rating reviews. I know that's a lot, but I need all the help I can get ;)
Dear Epic Inkers,
I felt out of place as a teen...more than once. But the truth is, we're only as alone as we choose to be. I'm not saying it's easy to make friends or feel connected with people, but don't be discouraged!
