I Have A Book In A Bookstore

When I first started writing, I never really believed I’d see a book with my name on it resting on a shelf in Barnes & Noble, but I fantasized about what it’d look like. It only took five years to see it come true, lol! And here it is, The Zodiac Collector, available at my local Barnes & Noble: IMG_1225 After the initial shock wore off of seeing my book under the “New Teen Fantasy and Adventure” section (I kind of stood staring for a while, then I snapped a few pictures, then I stared some more, then I took more pictures–God, I wonder what people thought!), I snatched the copies off the shelf and autographed them. IMG_1230 The store manager added The Zodiac Collector to the other autographed books they have at the Info Desk under Noteworthy Selections and invited me to schedule a book signing (which will likely be next year). FullSizeRender She and another employee took my picture to commemorate the occasion. Super sweet, right? They totally made my day! IMG_1232 I’ve got a TON of folks to thank for helping me realize this dream, from beta readers, other writers, family, friends, supportive co-workers, and, of course, my editor, publicist, and the team at Spencer Hill Press. MOST importantly, I send a huge

THANK YOU

to my readers. I hope you enjoy The Zodiac Collector. 🙂

Make sure you come back next week when I kick off a week long blog tour with Bewitching Book Tours for The Zodiac Collector!
