As many of you have guessed, my book The Great Trees Fall hasn’t been released yet. I appreciate all of the emails and posts you sent me checking in on me and the book’s progress. I had every intention of releasing the book this year and that hasn’t happened. I sincerely apologize to those who are anxiously awaiting the final book. I am just as anxious to see how Brandon and Natalie’s story will end as you are!
I often have dreams of writing fiction full-time, but that hasn’t come to fruition yet.
In the meantime, I try to squeeze in my fiction writing time when I can. Unfortunately, as adulthood has it, and as I get older, my “real life” responsibilities paramount some of the things I actually want to do with my day.
Take a look at some snippets from the book below.
As always, I sincerely thank you for reading my stuff, and I thank you for your patience. You have no idea what your support has meant to me!
As most of you know already, my latest project The Great Trees Fall did not come out on September 10th. If you don’t know why, here’s my reasoning.
With that being said, however, many of you have been waiting ever-so-patiently for a new release date. I’ve promised you so many times. I’ve even posted a couple of snippets to tease you.
While the date you see above seems ridiculously far out, and inconceivable, it suits me just fine. This book is being dedicated to the 4 most important women in my life: my mama, my maternal grandmother (you remember Natalie’s grandma Marie Chandler…welp!), my baby sister, and my late aunt (who actually passed away on March 9, 2013). This final book in the When You Come to Me series is more than concluding Brandon and Natalie’s tale. It’s about the bounty of tough choices women have to make throughout their lives: whether it be our careers, our men, and something as difficult as when we should opt to use our hearts over our good sense. It’s about self-discovery and finding peace after difficult chapters in our lives, and where we should seek comfort, and how we solidify our strength.
The date not only commemorates my late aunt, but her literary influence on my life, as well as the other women who give me strength and life daily.
Have no fear, readers. This date is staying, no matter what my life brings!
I thank each of you for sticking with me, and sharing your own stories with me.
I’m in a good place right now. My direction for this latest project has been re-invigorated, and I’m writing like crazy. For all your patience and kind words, I not only thank you, but I’ll share a chapter with you. Take a gander below.
I’ll also (hopefully) be releasing a new date for the book very soon. And by soon, I mean in the next few days or so.
Thanks for sticking with me through this whole process. You have no idea what it means.
If you like what you’ve read from me so far, please do me a solid and share with your friends.
I hope you all, wherever you are, are staying warm and having a great day! I have some semi-exciting news to share .
I received a suggestion a few weeks ago from a pretty awesome reader, asking me to start a forum where my books (particularly When You Come to Me & Skin Like Dawn) can be discussed with me and with other readers. I thought it was a great idea, and decided to give it a try.
So…here it is! Please take a moment, if you’ve read any of my books, and see what other readers are talking about. If you haven’t read them or haven’t finished (yet), it’s a great place to see what other readers are thinking!
As always, thank you so much for your support! Please continue to spread the word to other unknowing book-lovers and leave as many (positive) ratings and reviews as you can.
