Paperbacks of The Everstone Chronicles... better late than never.

Wow, so that year—the craziest year of my entire life—is over! Sorry I checked out for a while! It was so amazing to get to the end of April and finally be able to do whatever I wanted in my spare time again! In case you aren’t aware, I had my first baby {the cutest baby boy ever, too!} just months before The Hesitant Heiress released last summer, and then of course, my publisher had me on a very tight release schedule with The Bound Heart coming out only three months later... AND then I didn’t have The Captive Imposter finished until January (which then released April 1st!)! 

In the last ten months since my debut novel released, I’ve heard from many readers regarding the fact that the series was only being released as eBooks, asking if they would ever be available in paperback.  Honestly, it’s been difficult for me to see the books be received so well but remain only available as eBooks. Once I began really gearing all of my focus on finishing The Captive Imposter and planning the blog tour this spring, I didn’t let myself think of the paperbacks. I had a copy of The Hesitant Heiress and The Bound Heart from a print run they did to enter the books into a few 2014 book contests, but it broke my heart every time I laid eyes on them. Yes, I loved them! I adored them! But it made me so incredibly sad to know that they weren’t available to all of the readers, friends and family members who also wanted to have the paperback versions. Even a large number of the readers who’ve read the books as eBooks have wanted the paperbacks for themselves and also to buy for gifts for their friends and family. 

Well, it looks like things might finally be working outand its funny, because just the other day I was awake in the middle of the night (for the baby) and thinking about this for the first time in a long time. Id basically come to the point that thinking about it was just too painful. Id tried to console myself over the months with the fact that at least I have tons of amazing readers who love the stories Ive written, but I still felt like God was saying “No” to one of the biggest requests of my heart. 

Well, soon printed books will be available to readers! Heres the quick-release schedule:

The Hesitant Heiress ~ September 1, 2015
The Bound Heart ~ October 1, 2015
The Captive Imposter ~ November 1, 2015 

I’m so thankful to my publisher for the wonderful experience I’ve had going through the editing process with the amazing Courtney Hartzel, and that their graphic design department made three of the most gorgeous covers I’ve ever seen for my books! And I cannot wait for you to see themand read them!
