I’m doing another proofread myself before I send it off to the editor.

Thank you to everyone who has been asking me about and waiting patiently for this book!  It’s told from two points of view – Chelsey Alton and Bryce Kelly and the plot sizzles when these two get together!

I’m hoping to schedule a book tour in late January or early February. If you want to participate in the book tour or be a beta reader, just let me know and I’ll hook you up! Email me at micheleseigfried@gmail.com or comment below!
