....GUYS I HAVE BIG NEWS FOR YOU.
I've been absent recently because of this big news. I announced on Twitter, so some of you might have seen it, but if not I'm so excited to finally share it with you...
The news? I'm getting published in the fall next year! *throws confetti everywhere*
I'm going a non-traditional route, but it's not technically self publishing. My books will be available on Barnes and Noble and The Book Depository websites, and Amazon, and I might be able to get it into some stores. I'm very excited about starting small - I've been able to choose who I work with, and it's the best. Plus I have the amazing support of a mighty group of friends. They are working tirelessly to promote this book and I can't wait to get it into everyone's hands.
Now, what is this book about, you might be asking. Well, I'm here to tell you: I'm finally releasing the official back-cover blurb, and I'm SO EXCITED. So without further ado, here is the blurb for The Color Project:
Bernice Aurora Wescott has one thing she doesn't want anyone to know: her name. That is, until Bee meets Levi, the local golden boy who runs a charity organization called The Color Project.
Levi is not at all shy about attempting to guess Bee’s real name; his persistence is one of the many reasons why Bee falls for him. But while Levi is everything she never knew she needed, giving up her name would feel like a stamp on forever. And that terrifies her.
When unexpected news of an illness in the family drains Bee's summer of everything bright, she is pushed to the breaking point. Losing herself in The Color Project—a world of weddings, funerals, cancer patients, and hopeful families that the charity funds—is no longer enough. Bee must hold up the weight of her family, but to do that, she needs Levi. She’ll have to give up her name and let him in completely or lose the best thing that’s ever happened to her.
For fans of Stephanie Perkins and Morgan Matson, THE COLOR PROJECT is a story about the three great loves of life—family, friendship, and romance—and the bonds that withstand tragedy.
I'm so so excited to share this book with you guys. It's such a heart-book, something I needed to write, and now it's ready to give to the world. I hope it blesses you as much as it blessed me to write it.
You can add the book to Goodreads (!!! SO OFFICIAL OMG) and I'm hoping it'll be available to preorder - with a cover and everything - in April. The official release date has yet to be decided, but it'll be sometime October or November.
