Book of the Month: Minutes Before Sunset!

30 Jun

If you read the live updates, then you already knew this, but I wanted to post about it for those who follow me strictly on this website.

Minutes Before Sunset is officially Goodreads Book of the Month for July.

My best friend, Cassie, drew this of me, and it's an accurate description of what I look like as I head off to my cousin's wedding!

You’re encouraged to discuss what you think about the novel and/or thinking about the novel as you read along. I’d love for everyone who’s reading to participate, so other readers who might be on the fence decide to read it, but I understand if you’re busy! And, again, Making Connections is a great group to promote yourself as well as meet other authors and readers.

Thank you for voting and supporting me! This has been a very exciting experience for me, and I am proud to move into the future with such great supporters. More writing tips and publishing tips are coming next post, but I have to keep it short today! As of right now (June 29, 2:48 p.m. CDT) I am off to see my cousin get married!

Looking forward to future posts and getting back into the swing of things. But, if you’re interested, AEC Stellar Publishing is offering free ebooks of Minutes Before Sunset in exchange for a review. Simply email me at, and I will get it sent over to you right away!

Have a great day,

    Glad to see your hustle rewarded. Amazon sent me an email saying my paperback copy should arrive Monday. Can’t wait to read what all the fuss is about. Keep up the hard work.
