Today’s the day. After months, well actually years, Onyx & Ivoryis out in the world today. Looking back, this book is a little bit of a miracle. It came out of one of the darkest periods of my life, and to be honest, there for a long while I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to publish again. Thankfully, I was wrong.
Although O&I Is my sixth published novel, it’s easily the most “me” book I’ve written so far. It’s about a young woman who loves horses. They make her happy, give her purpose. Kate can even communicate with them with her mind. She’s also an outsider, a girl without a home, who never feels like she belongs. I’ve felt that way often in my life as well. But her journey is about overcoming and finding her way, something we also have in common. Maybe you will, too.
Thanks so much to my amazing publisher Balzer + Bray and my stellar editor Jordan Brown. He makes my writer a hundred times better. Also thanks to my agent, Suzie Townsend and the team at New Leaf Literary, and an extra big hug to all the members of my street team who helped get the word out.
Speaking of getting the word out–If you happen to pick up the book, please consider posting a review on any retailer website. Those reviews are crucial to a book’s success, and for a writer like me those reviews can either make or break our future.
Also, if you’re local, please come see me at Joseph Beth Booksellers in Cincinnati tonight at 7:00, or I’ll be at Books & Co in Dayton on Thursday at 7:00
