Overprotected Release Day Party - SATURDAY

Celebrating the release of Overprotected! I'm soooo thrilled to share this story. It's the first book I wrote, when I started out 10 years ago. I wrote it as a women's romance, then as a screenplay, then I re-wrote it from Ashlyn's POV and VIOLA! It finally made it.

It amazes me how a story changes through various re-writes. With each version, there were multiple revisions, changes, etc. I bet I've written this story over 30 times when it's all said and done.

But the story felt wonderful from Ashlyn's POV, and I loved seeing her experiences wholly from her eyes. Her distortions of reality were fun to explore: feelings about Colin, her Dad and Mom - love leaving the reader to be a mediator of sorts, figuring out where her perspective is off and where it is on as the days and weeks of the events unfold.

On the sidebar I have an Overprotected link to a blog site where you can preview chapters and watch the trailer. I LOVE THE TRAILER. My daughter wrote the haunting song just for me, just for the trailer and that makes the trailer even more special for me.

I hope you'll stop by the FANPAGE for the release party festivities. You know me, there'll be oodles of swag from all the books. So if you have your heart set on something in particular, it'll probably be offered at some point.

Thank you for reading and for your support!
