As an author, I am always torn between whether I should write a dedication or a Dear Reader letter in my books. As a readers, I love both! Lately I've been toggling between which to include in each of my novels. Keep reading for deets, tips, samples and more!
Cover Reveal Coming Soon!
Thank you so much for coming along on Devon Jacob’s journey in Book 2 of my Fearless Fairytale series, SHE GETS WHAT SHE DESERVES!
Devon’s story is close to my heart. It’s one that I’d been wanting to write for years. So bringing it to fruition, then turning it into a trilogy, has been such a pleasure.
This series was inspired by my love of California and the entertainment industry. That love developed back when I was a preteen, obsessively reading Francine Pascal’s Sweet Valley High series. Her vivid descriptions of southern Cali stuck with me, even after all these years, as I plotted out my own characters’ LA love story.
I am oftentimes asked what I’d like for readers to take away from my books. I’m hoping that SHE GETS WHAT SHE DESERVES will inspire people to pursue their dreams, no matter how impossible they may seem. I also hope it promotes the pursuit of self-discovery and self-love, and the idea that it’s never too late to reinvent yourself. Lastly, my wish is that the book will encourage strong, positive female friendships and healthy romantic relationships.
I hope you enjoy reading SHE GETS WHAT SHE DESERVES as much as I enjoyed writing it.

P.S. Keep an eye out for upcoming holiday release, CHRISTMAS IN FULL BLOOM, coming this fall!
As you can see, I decided to discuss the inspiration behind my FEARLESS FAIRYTALE series in this letter. I also shared what I'm hoping readers will take away from the heroine's experiences.
So again, Dear Reader letters can include anything you'd like to share with your audience. For Book 3 in the trilogy, SHE GETS A HAPPY ENDING, I'm going to write another Dear Reader letter and discuss how my main character's journey has come full circle.
