This Is For Real

After It's Official! and a hint I left in The Liebster Award, I have a big, big, big announcement for you.

This is bigger than my first rejection.

This is cooler than when my blogging hero wrote a blog post inspired by me.

Yes, this is even better than when I received my own newsletter column.

And it's almost greater than the amazing, incredible, fantastic trip I went on this past summer.

Guess what?  Seriously, before you read more, guess in the comments!

A book by me is coming to ebook readers near you!

The book description I currently have written reads:

Nicole "Nikki" Johnson has never gotten along with her mother, so when she meets a great new guy, it's no surprise that Matt's age is all her mom sees. Just because he's twenty-four and she's sixteen doesn't mean he's a creeper. Thankfully, Nikki's dad allows Nikki and Matt to be together and see how things work out.  Their relationship is fantastic and Nikki is on cloud nine...
Until the Fourth of July picnic, when things go too far.  Now a pregnant Nikki has to make choices that will affect her every relationship - with Matt, her parents, her best friend, and most importantly, God.
Sixteen is a story of relationships, told by an adult Nicole to her teen daughter Claire.

I don't have a book deal, and it's not a full-length novel.  It is a contemporary Christian young adult novella that I will be self-publishing to Kindle, Nook, and Smashwords.

To ensure that my book is the best it can possibly be, Rachelle Rea has officially agreed to be my editor!  As a favorite blogger, amazing writer, and good friend of mine, I couldn't be happier.  She isn't available until May, but I hope to have a release date sometime once we're finished!

Stay tuned for a cover reveal, that release date, and more news!


  1. My guess is you are publishing a book or got an agent or are publishing a ebook.
    After reading the rest of the post: YEAH! I can't wait to read it! Good luck and I'm very happy for you and if you need some blogs or someone to head up a blog chain for the release, let me know!
