Hi there friends!
(It's insane that we're already almost two weeks into January.)
This is just a little reminder that two weeks from TOMORROW our book will go on sale HERE. Please do buy as many copies as you'd like because the more we sell, the better publisher options we'll have...
Beyond that, I should explain (because apparently I haven't done a good job until now and many people have been confused)...over the last 1-5 years, I've actually written three books. Two of the books have been with my friend Lindsay (Remember Us and Twelve Hearts) and one has been a solo project (We Were All Drowning.)
They are all fiction (general adult fiction) and all Very Different.
At its core, Remember Us is a humorous and poignant story about family. It explores forgiveness, love, loss, and the unexpected beauty of the people who share the same DNA.
The story centers around the Hamiltons and commences thirteen years after Bernice, formally known as mom, walked out of their lives without a word.
When 25-year-old Ben calls his twin and best friend, Reese, to tell her their father Carl has cancer, she drops everything and races back to their childhood home in Nebraska. Bernice shows up unannounced on the doorstep a few days later at 10 p.m. exactly with three suitcases, her pet chihuahua Rocky sitting high in her fuchsia purse, and mascara running down both cheeks.
She said she came to be helpful.
Remember Us chronicles the Hamiltons through the next three months as they begrudgingly grow reacquainted with each other.
We'll be taking pre-orders for Remember Us for 30 days starting January 26 and hopefully we'll make progress on having a publisher and/or an agent whom we can work with long-term after this step.
I love all three books for different reasons and am glad to be publishing Remember Us as a way to celebrate the milestone of actually writing a book. Sometimes it still sounds crazy to say out loud!
Also, I am SO GRATEFUL for your support along the way.
Writing has been a dear, dear dream of mine for as long as I can remember and I've learned so much from this process. So THANKS for all your love along this journey. I couldn't be here without you!
