Whatever It Takes - Official New Title

So, it's only been over ten years since I started writing this story, Reilly, and now I've officially reworked it into something that I can publish. It was more difficult than I though, reworking a story I wrote so long ago. Because despite the fact that it was already written, it was poorly written (I was in high school), and it being my first completed manuscript, it was hard to be able to look beyond my initial story line as I moved pieces around, deleted, prodded, and pushed my characters, which needed to be done.

BUT the first official draft is written, and I've officially got a new title for it. Here she is! I'm aiming to have her out and available no later than January 22, 2016 (my birthday)! Just trying to finish up Before The Dawn beforehand.

Either way, it means a lot that everyone has been so awesome and for that I want to share the cover for Before The Dawn with you all. I hope you like it as much as we do.

We're still chugging along, writing and working on the manuscript for this final chapter in Zoe and Dani's journey, so make sure you follow me on Facebook and sign up for my newsletter for updates on Ending Series progress and projects. Oh, and if you want an exclusive never-before-published Ending Series short story, sign up for the newsletter ASAP! :)

Back to writing I go...
