Enter The Wild Wood

Well, it is here: my release date.  The Wild Wood is now in the world and available in both print and ebook on Amazon.  Please forgive me for my blog’s silence lately.  The publishing journey has been pretty feisty in the past month.  So, rather than gush and use more exclamation points than are appropriate in a civilized society, let me present to you The Wild Wood.

In the town of Dunlowe, being different can be deadly. No one knows this better than the seven girls born on the exact same day, at the exact same time. From birth, they've been feared, judged, and controlled. And yet, still loved by their families. Still hoping for a future. Still believing that acceptance would one day come. 

As their seventeenth birthday approaches, events occur that leave Cecily Daye and the other girls grasping with the possibility that their oppressors might have been right about them all along. Maybe they are as evil as the town has believed. But without an answer, they must make a choice when the town turns on them: to die or to run to the one place no person would follow—they must enter The Wild Wood.

"A suspenseful story about friends, family and sacrifice... The town of Dunlowe, shivering under Pastor Rowe's rule, is sufficiently enigmatic—not to mention terrifying—to create suspense and deliver thrills."  Kirkus Reviews

Thanks to everyone who has supported me during this journey, and I promise to blog more in the near future and catch up on your adventures in publishing.

And check out Kasie West's blog for more about me and The Wild Wood.
