All the Feels (video)+ FLASHFALL Jacket & Blurbs

I wear my heart on my sleeve in this video. It’s pretty wild to look down and see a TWENTY-year-old rejection letter in one hand, and my (almost) published book in the other. Thanks for sharing this journey with me, friends! Here’s a peek at the jacket and blurbs for Flashfall . . . and me getting choked up about it all. : )

One of my Favorite Debut Moments + How to Win an ARC of FLASHFALL


My publisher is giving away 14 advanced reader copies of Flashfall over on Goodreads! If you’re interested in reading my book–weeks before its November 15 release date, then hop on over and enter the giveaway. It only shows up on computers (not phones or iPads,) and ends 9-27-16. Good luck!



This photo captures one of my favorite moments from my debut year. These wonderful (fellow writer) friends of mine waited in line for the Fierce Reads Teen Day event at the RT Booklovers’ Convention–in order to get their hands on the first ARCs of FLASHFALL to go out into the world. I’ll never forget looking up from the table where I was signing and seeing them holding my book, grinning. I leaped up and hugged them, and nearly started crying.

Dream moments are even better when we get to share them with people who care about us. Thanks for following my publishing journey. I hope it inspires you to keep dreaming and reaching for your own happy-tears moments.

You can find FLASHFALL at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Indiebound, or request it from your local library.
