All Good Things…

…must come to an end. This week the 2017 Debs say goodbye and welcome in the 2018 class!

It’s crazy to think an entire year has gone by. FEAST OF SORROW landed in bookstores on April 25th, jumpstarting what I hope will be a real future career for me. It took me nearly a decade to get this book in the world, when all was said and done, but hopefully, book 2 will take a lot less time. It’s been an amazing year and I’ve ridden a rollercoaster of emotions over the course of those months–far more thrilling than terrifying, whew!

It has been an honor to be a part of The Debutante Ball. I am so grateful to have had the chance to get to know Amy, Lynn, Jenni and Tiffany and their wonderful books. Publishing a book is a crazy weird and confusing experience much of the time and having these four talented women walking the same path right alongside me made it all so much easier.

The readers of the Deb Ball made the whole experience that much more rewarding. Thank you for all the cheers, the reshares of our blog posts and your questions and comments.

I’m SO excited about the new Debs! Cass, Kimmery, Julie, Lara and Kaitlyn, I can’t wait to read your Deb Ball posts, cheering you on from the sidelines! This is going to be such a crazy good year and I wish you all the best.

It will feel strange not to see my post going up every Monday at 8AM! If you would like to stay in touch, here are all the ways you can find me:

I read an ungodly amount of books a year, which you can find on my Goodreads page.
