BETWEEN is #28 on Amazon’s Hot New Releases for Children’s Emotion & Feeling’s Books

This has been a tremendous week! A big THANK YOU for all of the love and support of my middle grade debut, BETWEEN. As those of you close to me know, I had gotten pretty close to getting picked up by the traditional publishing market. It took me a long time to decide to go indie with BETWEEN but I’m so happy I did. Because I just found out that BETWEEN is #28 on Amazon’s Hot New Releases for Children’s Emotion & Feeling’s Books. Please click on the link and check it out! I am so thankful and proud!

As readers and book enthusiasts everywhere know, the best marketing for a good read is word of mouth. That’s why it’s so difficult for editors and agents to predict which books are going to be best sellers. If it were easy, we’d all be doing That Which Is Easy. I very much appreciate you spreading the word. All the emails, comments, tweets, Facebook likes, etc. really do add up and make a difference!

I am tickled to the core and had to interrupt my daily writing to share this amazing post!


Update: Apparently the Amazon's Hot New Release list gets updated hourly. Currently (at the time this update gets posted) BETWEEN has moved to #31. Not sure what you'll find when you click on the link but the day I get in the top ten you'll probably hear about it! ;-) And, I'll not forget to snapshot the page!

Release of debut book BETWEEN!

I’m excited to share with you the launch of my new website and release of my debut middle grade book BETWEEN, now available on Amazon!

When good girl Lucy Montone, or Peaches-n-Cream as her family likes to call her, is shocked by the sudden announcement of her parents divorce, she starts sixth grade with her world turned upside down.  Peaches, desperately wants things to be like they used to.  This seems impossible when she learns that her best friend has just dropped her for someone else and that the certified school creep considers her his favorite target. Worst of all, she will be forced to decide between her parents in a heated custody battle.  On the edge of thirteen, Peaches discovers that life can take an unpredictable course and that sometimes breaking the rules and letting go are part of growing up and making the unthinkable choice.

Please feel free to buy, download, read, review, comment, tweet, Facebook and share profusely! Many thanks!
