A Massive Thank You: Early Feedback on Legally Mine

Hoo-boy! It's been a seriously busy month. The best news is this: LEGALLY MINE IS FINISHED. The book is currently up for pre-order on Amazon, and just going through one last round of proofreading to make it all beautiful before its wide release on June 28. I am so, so very excited and nervous to see what everyone thinks. This was me last night:



Writing is so intensely personal, and this book in particular was really difficult in some ways to write. It came fast and furious, but after some of scenes, I'd often feel like I'd just been run over by a truck. The characters make some choices that really angered me, and I suspect will also anger you guys too, so it's a little nerve-wracking to put something out that that feels so intensely vulnerable.

But.

We don't write to be safe, do we? Aristotle, my main man, pronounced the point of poetry as catharsis: that process of purging those uncomfortable emotions we can't figure out otherwise. So my characters are just like anyone else: they make bad decisions, and they make good ones, and they have to deal with the fallout of both.

Which brings me to my point of writing: your feedback. This morning I woke up to an amazingly kind review of an early edition of the book. Knowing when my work resonates just means THE WORLD to me, you guys. I love, love, LOVE hearing from you. I had such a goofy smile on my face that my students this morning clearly thought I was nuts. I was way too happy for the end of the quarter. So that lady up there turned to this:



So I just wanted to say: thank you. Thank you for all of your support. Thank you for your reviews, which help vouch for the books and interest other readers too. Thank you for your participation and communication with me on social media. Thank you for being part of this amazing adventure.

  1. They both had done the great movie fifty shades of grey and this new coming drama 'THE EVOLUTION OF A COVER & A LEGALLY MINE' WILL ALSO BE A GREAT HIT
