So this happened today! I’m split equally in three ways. Gratitude (thanks Kim!), excitement, and obssession are all three pulling me in their direction!
I can’t believe I have my next cover!!!
I think this makes it all real (or sureal, take your pick!) Four novels in four years, I’m setting my goals and then killin’ them. You can probably just call me ‘the goal slayer’ from here on out.
Also, on a side note, completely off the subject — I’m about 92% sure that I’m going to get a tattoo on the back of my neck that says ‘Edit Me’… If anyone has any thoughts on that then please share, I’d really love some input, or encouragement. Lol really though, my husband thinks it’s silly so a few votes in my favor might shut him up a little because we all know that I’m going to do what I want anyway.
SO here it is!! The official cover for SEARCH FOR MAYLEE!!! Omg, I can’t wait to release this!!
Since Maylee was abducted from her high school the very month of graduation, her Aunt Autumn has never lost hope in finding her. It’s been three years. Autumn has finally reached inside herself and found the courage to track down an old lead. She moves across the country to find him. Will Autumn be able to pry Maylee’s case back open? More importantly, what will Autumn uncover in the process of searching for Maylee? It’s a cold dark world we live in, and she is about to find out just how cruel it can be. Strength and determination are on Autumn’s side and she will do whatever it takes to either bring Maylee home, or to deliver the justice she deserves.
***Everything she had planned to say evaporated out of her mind, like the steam off boiling water. She now sat ashamed and growingly ridged in front of this unnerving man. A stiff torso allowed her to lean back into the chair and dig around her pocket for the crumpled up paper. If she couldn’t find the words to tell him, then she would have to show him instead. The rumpled pink page, still slightly moist, was set hesitantly on the desk between them.
“I’m moving to Denver to find Craig. I’m going to look for Maylee myself.”
The shaking of Autumn’s hands multiplied by ten while she spoke the words. There was so much more she had intended to say, but for some uncomfortable reason her tongue wouldn’t cooperate, and her chest failed to rise and fall with proper breath. These factors rendered her utterly incapable of the full speech she had intended.
Tears welled in her eyes, stopping at the inside corners – teetering the edge of a full on meltdown. How embarrassing. It was easy to tuck away her anxiety and fears around her friends and family, but not so much Chance. All of her worries and doubts were somehow brought to the surface, just from the presence of him. Though so confident about the whole thing that morning, Autumn was starting to question herself at the mere sight of Chance. She couldn’t decide if his facial expression read angry, worried, anxious, or what? His mind was tangled, clearly he was confused at her. The awkward demonstration of care in his face gave her a chill***
