I Want To Hold Your Hand

I came home from babysitting last night at 11:30 and had a split second of "I am exhausted," mixed with "Shoot, I really want to get the book uploaded to Amazon". And even though my bed was calling to me I plucked some semblance of energy from inside and stayed up until 1:45am getting it all squared away. Note to self - do not attempt reading legal jargon after 9pm. I am fairly positive I only retained 25%, but that's what printers are for, right?

So here it is. The book I wrote two years ago and then spent two years querying to 112 agents with no results. Then, after reading Amanda Hocking's blog, I decided that maybe I'd give self-publishing a second go-round. And here we are.

Today is the first day of summer, summer vacation has already begun for some and is about to begin for others and that means... summer reading! When you go to the beach, or the lake, or your friend's pool to soak up the sun you will undoubtedly need something to read. So I offer "I Want To Hold Your Hand" up to you as the next book to add to your list and when you read it please go back to Amazon and write a quick note about how you felt about it so other readers will know to buy it. From the bottom of my heart I hope you enjoy it. I spent many years toiling with these characters and their story and I want nothing more than to share them with you.

Here it is.

I hope you enjoy.

Sincerely yours,


  1. Congratulations! So proud of you. The book cover is gorgeous. Everyone should add this to their summer reading. Perfect beach read!

    1. Thank you Molly, for being my proofreader, cheerleader and best friend. I couldn't have done this without your support!
