Today is STAINED’s book birthday! Come celebrate with me.

STAINED_New-Cover-120eeeee! I’m so excited! (grinning) I love that STAINED is in bookstores now, and that readers can finally pick it up and read it! It’s a wonderful, exciting, slightly scary, very happy thing to have a book come out into the world. A book that I’ve put bits of my soul into, and infused some of my trauma experience as well as healing into. I hope if you loved SCARS that you’ll pick up STAINED. (smiling)

In STAINED, Sarah thought she knew what fear was–until she was abducted. Now she must find a way to rescue herself.

Thank you SO much to everyone who’s celebrating with me today, helping get the word out about STAINED and sending me book birthday wishes. It makes it such a happier day, and I so appreciate it!

I’ve added some freebies that all tie into themes in STAINED that you may want to grab:
