Sometimes the fastest way isn’t always the best way. Sometimes the best things in life take a while.
– Emily Beth
Hi all! It’s summertime, and what goes great with summertime? Reading a good book. Which is why I’m assuming there has been an upsurge of inquiries about The Great Trees Fall in the past few weeks. As you may have noticed, the book has not been released yet.
I appreciate your eagerness to know when the book will be released. As I’ve remarked numerous times before, you’ll know as soon as I do!
As I’ve grown up over the past couple of years since Skin Like Dawn, so has my responsibilities in life as an adult. Adulting things like family (had a death in my family very recently), work, graduate school, and planning my wedding have taken precedence.
That doesn’t, however, mean that I’ve forgotten about dear ol’ Brandon and Natalie, nor have I stopped writing their story. I’ve just been busy working on mine!
Again, I sincerely appreciate your patience. The day that I announce a release date will be a great day, I know. But, in the meantime, have a little faith, and enjoy another book! 🙂
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!

The Revolving Door
Caution: Some of the snippets may contain spoilers. If you don’t want to know anything about what may happen in the book, don’t read or proceed with caution!
Tritely enough, a brand new year is a very exciting time, is it not? You feel a renewed sense of purpose. You may even prioritize things differently, make exciting plans, draft lists of the things you neglected to do in the previous year.
And speaking of things that I neglected to do in the preceding year, I’d like to say that the official countdown is underway.
In case you’ve forgotten, my book, The Great Trees Fall, will be released in March of this year. I sincerely cannot wait to share this with you, and I hope that you help me in spreading the word about it.
Brandon and Natalie deserve a proper send off, am I right?
In the meantime, check out some snippets of the book here and here!
I know that it’s chilly where you are, and you’re looking for a nice book to snuggle up with.
Sound about right? I figured.
I’ve received a couple of messages on my Facebook page, asking me when my next book The Great Trees Fall will be released, and if it will be released sooner than March 9th (yes, that March 9th in 2015). I would love to say that the book was ready for release now, but it isn’t, and I sincerely appreciate everyone’s patience as I finalize this project. Believe or not, March will be here in the blink of an eye.
Think about it this way: the holidays are here and the end of the year is right around the corner.
With that being said, I want to thank each and every one of you who’ve reached out to me expressing your anticipation for the next book. I’m just as excited as you are!
March 9, 2015, is still the release date for the book, and I don’t expect it to change.
In the meantime, I’ll be sure to post another snippet, and if you have any questions or concerns, please, do not hesitate to reach out to me. I’ll try to get to your inquiry as soon as humanly possible.
While I’m well underway, working on my new project and the final book in the When You Come to Me series, the folks over at 10914 Reviews, were gracious enough to interview me about my first book, When You Come to Me. Remember that one? I know it’s been awhile.
At any rate, check it out, share it, and share your thoughts.

When You Come to Me
March 9, 2015
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.

By now, I hope you’ve read the sample chapters I posted this time last week and have passed them along to all of your book loving friends? Not there yet? Check them out below.
In the meantime, stay tuned for a new release date, and thank you for sticking with me. You have no idea how much it means!
Since September 10th, has come and gone, I’ve gotten a few emails from people notifying me that they can’t locate the book on any book distributor’s website. There’s a reason for that, which can be found here.
In the meantime, I promised you guys a snippet of what’s to come. While I work diligently, making the last book in the When You Come to Me series what I believe it should be, you can read a tinge of what’s going on below. As always, if you have any questions or want to chat, I’m available!
Take a read and let me know your thoughts! I cannot wait to share the final product with you all.
I hope you had a wonderful day!
So, in light of the final book in the series coming out later this year, me & the designer Darin Michelle started an initiative to revamp the previous 2 covers, in order to make the series more aesthetically cohesive. Needless to say, I’m happy with the results! Darin Michelle has done it again!
And don’t worry, Skin Like Dawn will follow!
