Hey, everyone!

I'm excited to share the cover for my debut novel, ROSES ARE RED! So without further ado...

And here's the back cover blurb:

After her foster mother’s unexplained death six months ago, fourteen-year-old Isla Timearth just wants things to go back to normal for her and her twin brother, Monty. But “normal” can only go so far for a closed-off girl with abandonment issues and an anxious boy that gets frequent nosebleeds. Still, the troubled redheads give it a shot by returning to the summer camp they’ve been going to for years.

Aside from her crush showing up unexpectedly, the summer starts out as Isla expected: she participates in multiple activities with her friends, while her brother shies away from doing anything with anyone. But camp traditions get rained on when their biological mother shows up unannounced and, as far as Isla’s concerned, unwelcome.

Knowing that Mother Nature is the mother of all mood swings, Isla isn’t all that surprised to find out that her temperamental biological mother is the terrestrial goddess. What does surprise her is that Monty, the favorite twin, already knew but never told her. Despite being annoyed that such a huge secret was kept from her, Isla has always questioned the loyalty of her own flesh and blood. But once more family secrets start to unravel around her fellow campers, Isla finds out whether blood really is thicker than water.

I still don't have a release date for RAR unfortunately, but I'm really hoping I'm given the date soon!

What do you guys think of the cover? Let me know in the comments! :D

What's The Word? Weekend #56

It's time for What's the Word? Weekend number fifty-six!  :)

So let's take a look at this weekend's news:

The Bad News:  
None this week (I'm on Spring Break!!!). :)

The Good News: 
One of my editors asked me to add about 2,000 words to the intro of Roses Are Red, so that readers would (hopefully) get hooked into the story faster. Over the past few days, I wrote (and re-wrote) 2,000 words, and now I'm just waiting to hear what my editor thinks of the addition. I definitely think beginning has more of a hook now, so here's to hoping my editor and readers do as well. :)

In other news:
Last Friday, my first ever guest post was posted on Little Birdy Book Blog! Truth be told, I signed up to do a guest post for LBBB without knowing what that actually entailed ... it was only after I signed up that I found out it meant writing a blog post for another blog. I wasn't sure what to write (since I literally could write about anything), and I started to doubt whether or not I should write a guest post at all. But in the end I did the best thing I think I could have done: I wrote from the heart. I basically wrote about how nervous I am about my debut novel coming out soon, and what it means to me to finally have my publishing dream come true.  
You can read my guest blog post on LBBB here! :D

Well, that's all for this weekend folks! Until next time! :)

This is my year, this is my time, this is my now.

P.S. Happy Spring, Everyone!!!
