ONE MONTH UNTIL RELEASE! (and STW Excerpt #1!)

GUYS! This is so exciting.

Say The Word will be released in just one short month and the Cover Reveal is in just 15 days.

I'm beyond excited for you guys to see the gorgeous cover and read this story. It's very different from Like Gravity, but I hope you'll love it as much as I do. Also, in celebration of Say The Word's upcoming release, I'll be raffling off some signed paperback copies of Like Gravity, ecopies of Say The Word, and other fun prizes (I'll have more details on the giveaway in a week or so).

For today... I'll leave you with the first ever excerpt from Say The Word! I hope you enjoy it!

 SAY THE WORD EXCERPT #1:

"I’ve always thought that relationships are kind of like stars.

The majority of them burn brightly for a time and then slowly die out, leaving a luminous legacy in their wake. Their residual light shines brightly for years after their dissipation – a dazzling imprint of what once was, that lingers even in the absence of the star itself.

Normal relationships, like normal stars, are no less beautiful in their ordinariness. They light the sky, weaving an infinite constellation of love, trust, and commitment. In fact, I’d always gazed rather enviously at that galaxy of wonderfully mundane relationships.

So, from what little I could tell from my view on the ground, there were these ordinary, healthy stars – glowing with a serenity that could only be indicative of domestic bliss.

And then, in another solar system entirely, there was my relationship with Sebastian.

We weren’t a normal star. We were a supernova, a red-hot sun – the kind that blazes so strongly it eviscerates life on any planet foolish enough to orbit too close. And we didn’t burn out. No, we imploded, leaving behind nothing but a gaping black hole so dark and so fathomless that not a trace of our light existed anymore.

So black, we didn’t just repel the light…

We absorbed it.

I guess, in simpler terms, it’d be safe to say our breakup didn’t go very well."
