I just had a moment. As I sit here working on my manuscript, it dawned on me that this is the last book I'll release this year, and what a year it has been.
With all that is going on in the world, which I refuse to regurgitate here, the one thing that has kept me sane has been the writing; sitting with my characters, being introduced to them, learning from them, getting to know them, and experiencing life as they know it has all kept me focused and together and able to block out some of the noise of the outside world. So, sitting here this morning, as I reflect on this being the last book I'll publish this year, I sit in a space of gratitude.
I know I say it all the time, but it doesn't mean it's not true. I appreciate you so much. Even though I write alone, I'm never truly alone because you all are here with me, in the process, happy about the books that have been written this year, reading them voraciously and loving these characters that I created in my mind. That is amazing and every now and then I have to pinch myself because this journey has been nothing short of incredible.
This is the last one for 2020 ya'll, and there is no better way to end the year than with the Ali family. (insert big smile here). This is going to be a fun, heartfelt read that will hopefully give you swoon-worthy moments as I am swooning as I write. I can't wait for you to read it.
