Before Finding Forever or Chasing Forever came out, I wrote a book. Not all that surprising, since that’s what I tend to do, but this book was different. My initial idea was to turn it into a Forever book, but the more I wrote the darker it became. Eventually, I knew it had to be a stand alone. Once this book was free to be whatever it wanted to be, it took on a life of its own. It’s so different from the Forever Series, but I’m being told it’s the best thing I’ve written so far, so I think you’ll love it.

I made myself sick over these characters, I’d pace the house for days worried about how they’d overcome any given situation. I needed them to be alright, their future was in my hands. Dramatic? You bet, but it didn’t change the way I felt. They were no longer fictional characters, they were a part of me. I lived and breathed them. I must say my husband wasn’t quite ready for the meltdown I had when I finally typed- “The End”.

Once Broken was written, I wanted to give it the release it deserves, so I set no date. I didn’t rush anything. I agonized over every detail from the cover to the characters. I went through a brief period where I wasn’t sure I’d ever release Broken, I didn’t want this book to be judged. I am protective, probably over protective of this book and will probably cry with every bad review. But, that’s part of being a writer, I write, you read, that’s the deal.

I’m so happy to say that it’s ready.

Pre-Order- November, 1st. (Amazon, iTunes, Barnes & Noble)

Cover Reveal- November, 24th. (Because nothing compliments turkey like a book cover)

Release date- January, 10th. (My cousin’s birthday, she’s high maintenance like that)

If you’re still reading, you deserve a reward, how about a cover blurb.

Broken- coming January, 10th

Chelsea Redding’s life hasn’t turned out the way she expected. Her parents don’t approve of anything she does, and they disowned her only brother because of his heroin addiction. She dreams of finding forever with someone, but there’s only so much heartbreak she can take.

Lucas Redding has succeeded in one thing in his entire life: being the least favorite child. His little sister, Chelsea, is the only family he has left. And if something doesn’t change soon, he won’t even have her. He knows Chelsea has a limit of how much he can put her through and he’s about to reach it.

Chelsea is convinced Lucas can beat his addiction and she will do whatever it takes to help him, but between going to school, dancing, and falling in love, she only has so much time to scrape him off dingy bathroom floors and out of dark alleyways.

Can they help each other pick up the pieces of their broken lives? Or will Lucas’ addiction ruin any hope Chelsea has of having a normal life?
