“I don’t know what I want. I don’t know what I’m doing. But I think it might just kill me if you decide to date someone else.” – Maxton Hudson

I can’t even believe that cover is real or this whole writing adventure I call life is real. 

Over a year ago, in May 2020, during the dreaded COVID-19 pandemic, I started writing a brand new book and within a few months the core of the story was complete. From day one, it has always been called Maxton. The more I wrote, the more I fell in love with him.

He’s human. He’s not perfect. He makes a lot of mistakes. 

Much like us. 

And today, you get to be the first to see the official cover AND the only one to read a scene from the book (slightly edited to keep some mystery) before it is released!

Writing a book is one thing. Letting others read it is scary. Getting feedback is like opening the closet to find Michael Myers staring back at you with a knife. TERRIFYING. 

Like Maxton, I might not be perfect, and this book might not be perfect, but it’s the beginning and the first in line of many more original books to come.

Stay tuned for the official release date of Maxton. Pre-order announcement coming soon. If you’re feeling extra ambitious and have the time to do some quick reading, scroll down to sign up for my ARC team and be the first to read Maxton before anyone else. 

I hope he sweeps you off your feet!
