Today is release day and as usual and with most authors, it’s a day of excitement and anxiety. I’m excited about sending my book out into the world for readers to enjoy and I have anxiety about how readers will embrace, or not, my new book. I won’t even give those mean girls any recognition this time.
But, I release Craving Charlesia with a smile on my face and love in my heart because I love Charly and Sam and I think they are a great couple. Individually Charly is a kick-ass tough girl who has been through so much in her life. She’s lost her left arm from the elbow down serving her country and she loses a little piece of her heart in this book. Sam, is tough, strong, smart and caring. Charly’s different ability doesn’t mean jack to Sam. He actually think it makes her unique and he’s all in for that.
Sam and Charly learn to work together because what they realize is they are stronger together. They are fearsome and amazing together. And they approach everything in that light.
As always, I have a team of people to thank for helping me release Craving Charlesia into the world.
So, thank you to:
Eric McKinney of 612 Photography for the fantastic photo of BB, (my “Sam”) for the cover.
Stacy Garcia of Graphics by Stacy, for taking my vision of Sam and Eric’s photo and creating a cover that fits RAPTOR.
April Bennett – The Editing Soprano, for her copy edits.
Judy Rosen for polishing those edits and my story to a shine.
Beta Readers – Kim and Yvonne – you ladies are the best.
PJ Fiala’s Road Queens – my reader group who help me name characters and places – thank you all so much for your input, creativity and simply your presence in the Road Queens. You make it the first place I check in the morning and the last place I check each night just to converse and have fun. You all make the Road Queens a happy place to be.
My PA – Julie. I love working with you Julie. You have a confidence and spark and level-headedness about you that I rely on and appreciate. Thank you.
Thank you to my readers. You’ve shown me with each release how much you enjoy my books and please know how much I appreciate you. #ReadersRule
Of course, last but not least by any means – my family, who without you I could not chase my dreams and catch the sometimes elusive little demons. I love you all so very much.
