Title Change!


My book has a new title, it is no longer UNFINISHED, it's THE LAST WORD. You can read all about it on Swoon Reads

To celebrate my title change, I've included some of the "last words" from my favorite books:

"The scar had not pained Harry for nineteen years. All was well." -Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling.

"It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.” -A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens

"Oh, my girls, however long you may live, I never can wish you a greater happiness than this." Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.

"A LAST NOTE FROM YOUR NARRATOR. I am haunted by humans." -The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.

“I don’t mind as long as I can come and go,” Calcifer said. “Besides, it’s raining out there in Market chipping.” -Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones.

“She gloried in being a sailor’s wife, but she must pay the tax of quick alarm for belonging to a profession which is, if possible, more distinguished in its domestic virtues than in it’s national importance.” -Persuasion by Jane Austen.

“But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs." -Middlemarch by George Eliot.

The Last Word Book Launch Party

What a lovely group of people! I am so grateful for the friends, family, and even a few fans (I didn't know I had those) who came to support me at The King's English Bookshop in SLC. They were gracious enough to wear the fascinators and pearl earrings that I made. Fancy Nancy would have approved.   I was in conversation with Mackenzi Lee and we had a great time talking about Victorian underwear and my book, The Last Word. The best part of my writer's journey has been the friends that I've made.  The Novel 19s group  (Authors debuting this year: Addie Thorley, me, Erin Stewart, Tiana Smith, Crystal Pasternack, RuthAnne Snow, and Crystal Smith) There's so many amazing authors in Utah and they are the kindest people you'll ever meet. And sometimes silly, Summer and I are lifting a leg. I'm not sure why.
(More amazing local authors: Emily R. King, Tricia Levenseller, me, Kathryn Purdie, and Summer Spence) 
It was a wonderful night and I am so very grateful.

The Last Word Tea Party / Book Launch

"So what do you do at a book launch?" my mom asked me.

In case you've never been to a book launch either, I'll tell you. A book launch is really a party for the book. Who doesn't love a party, right? All parties are a little different, but some things you can expect at a book launch:  The author to talk about and/or read from their bookQ & A with the audienceBook signings at the end And more...Stick out your pinkies, friends, we're going full out Tea Party style at my book launch for, The Last Word.  First things, first. What's a tea party without a fascinator? I made a ton of these cute little hair accessories so you can feel just like Kate Middleton (Prince William not included).
Come early and pick your favorite to put in your hair! I also made pearl earrings for all of you too. I only wish that I could feed you delicious tea party treats, but the bookstore didn't think that was a very good idea by all of their new books. Go figure! I am going to…
