Published!

Yep, that's right. Today Dark Storm Rising was officially published!! :D
To say I'm excited would be an understatement. I can't tell you how thrilling it is to finally be able to hold my book in my hands! There are so many people who deserve a HUGE 'thank-you' for helping me with this project.
My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who loved me so much He came to earth and died for me. It's for His glory and honor that I write!
Emily McConnell for inspiring me to write it, reading my terribly messy, unedited chapters and telling me you enjoyed them ;), and for helping me with the book title as well as the chapter titles.
Deborah C. for all your help with the editing. Honestly, you were the best editor anyone could ask for and you were always so encouraging. You also enjoyed my story which is a huge thing!
Rebekah Eddy for your help explaining the Lulu publishing site when we came to visit. It was a breeze to be able to work on when we got back. ;)
And also all my blog readers! That you would choose to visit my blog and read my work when I know there are so many others out there means a lot!
Ahh! I'm just so excited right now!! The book is available for purchase here (Dark Storm Rising). It is not on Amazon yet. I have been considering whether to put it on Amazon or not and I haven't decided yet. :)
It is also on Goodreads, so if you have read it and would be willing to review it, that would be awesome!
I hope y'all have an amazing weekend!

And of course you're welcome, I had so much fun reading your story, and laughing at our little jokes in it (Mr. Finch! ;D). It was so much fun. God bless and I'm so happy for you. <3

    1. Haha, yes, Mr. Finch! I honestly wasn't sure how I would get him into the story, especially if I couldn't kill him. B-)
