Back to school is our theme today. Hmm...I don't have any school clips from my books or any personal things to share. Too traumatic...Really, I try not to think about my school days because I was teased a lot, the lonesome nerd that I was.... So instead, I'll share reviews from one of my teacher readers. This Literary arts teacher reviewed both Fateful and Fractured and put them on her summer reading list. (Careful, spoilers!)

They were both phenomenal books, and the best part is there is a 3rd in the series. Woohoo! I can’t wait! How much longer??!!

Now, on to the Forever update I was teasing you with earlier. I'm moving into a new house in two weeks. I wanted to get Forever published before then. If by some miracle I can still make that date, I will announce it here. But between boxing up the house, and stuff like that, it looks like I won't be able to get it out until October. :( Sorry, this is driving me crazy too! LOL

So...to hopefully make it up to you. Check back here on Saturday for Sweet Saturday Samples to read the first chapter of Forever!

Have you loved the Fateful series so far? Let me know by posting your good reviews for me on Amazon and Goodreads. You'll make my day a happy one, and there's nothing like getting a good review that motivates me to write faster! Here's one I recently got:

"I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your book. When I finished Fractured I was so upset that the third book wasn't out. When I bought Fateful I didn't expect to like it as much as I did. I found myself thinking about the story all the time. Thank you for writing this series and for making it clean. I can't wait for the third book!" ~ From the amazing and generous Kenzie. Thank you! I really needed this!!!

I love how very diverse all of our posts are today! :) What a wonderful review and I really need to read Fateful. There are too many of our fellow carnies books I just haven't gotten a chance to read yet.

As a person who's moved many more times than I've wanted to, I empathize with you for what the next few weeks hold. Hopefully not a million boxes labeled "random" like my last move. I hope you're able to get Forever out when you're hoping to! :)
