CONSIDER releases in Germany and upcoming writing projects

Germany cover of CONSIDER!

Germany cover of CONSIDER!

Great news! The German foreign rights for the Holo Series sold to Arena publishing in Germany. The German edition of Consider will be available in hardcover and ebook starting March 2018, and Contribute should be available in Sept 2018.

I love the German cover of Consider, and I cannot wait to see the cover design for Contribute. It's mind-blowing to see my imagination translated and sold in other countries.

What am I working on next? I've been busy writing a new, young adult novel for my agent unrelated to the Holo Series. Can't say too much other than it's a contemporary DNA thriller about four teens. Hoping to finish it within theyear and see if it can find a publisher. After that project, I plan to write a contemporary middle-grade idea that I've been dying to get on paper. It's full of heart and has a quirky main character I adore.

That's all the news I have so far. Back to writing!

P.S. If you haven't written a quick review of CONSIDER or CONTRIBUTE on Amazon and/or Goodreads, please do. One sentence is all it takes, and it really helps small press books find their audience. Thanks!


Anxiety in CONSIDER

Consider Book

Consider Book

Readers have been asking me lots of questions about the main character in CONSIDER, Alexandra Lucas, and her generalized anxiety and panic attack disorder. I love hearing that people are connecting to her character and sharing their personal struggles with me.

I wanted to share a guest post I wrote on the subject of anxiety for YA Interrobang on why I decided to write a main character with anxiety who becomes a hero. Read the post here.

It's so important to talk openly about mental health issues and advocate for those who need help. I'm here. Talk to me.
