Announcement time! I've got a new book coming down the pipeline this summer, called The Future Mrs. Brightside.
It's my first foray into non-speculative contemporary fiction. No aliens, no zombies, no ghosts, just a complicated love story on regular planet earth.
Want to see?
After a year of making beautiful music together, Chloe Hatherly thinks she’s more than ready to make the age-old promise to her bandmate, Jon. In sickness and in health, for better or worse. When the sudden death of Jon’s father forces the couple to postpone their wedding in favor of a funeral, however, their relationship veers rapidly off course from the ever after they’d both envisioned. Now living in her intended father-in-law’s memory-steeped house and acting as round-the-clock caregiver for her fiancé’s worsening depression, Chloe finds herself afflicted with a songwriter’s block for which she’s only ever known one cure: leaving and writing a killer breakup song. Unlike the subjects of her past lyrical rants, Chloe can’t picture her life without Jon in it, and she begins to wonder if there’s a way to save the music she loves while keeping the vows she never had the chance to make — or if she and Jon have already been irrevocably parted by death, albeit not their own.
The Future Mrs. Brightside is an uncomfortably honest, sometimes hilarious, fiercely romantic prose ballad to the hideous beauty of love in good times and bad.
Coming July 14th, 2020.
This is a pretty personal one, as my friends and family can probably guess, and it's been in the works for a few years now, but it's finally ready!
So, where can you get it?
Well, the ebook's going to be Kindle-exclusive to start out, so if you have a Kindle or Kindle App, you can preorder it right now:
The Future Mrs. Brightside (Kindle)
It's also going to be on Kindle Unlimited for a while, so once it's out you can read it for free there if you're enrolled. I'm entered in this year's Kindle Storyteller contest, so your page reads really do make a difference for me.
If you're non-Kindle, or if you just prefer the physical touch, there'll be a paperback edition out at the same time, link coming soon.
In the meantime, you can keep it on your radar by adding it to your Goodreads shelf.
