Roses Update

The number one goal in life to publish a book and I am SO close to accomplishing that goal. I’m hoping to have a book in your hands sometime this fall!!!

Things are getting REAL! I booked a photo shoot for the cover and found someone who agreed to be on the cover. I’m currently finishing up final edits and getting set up for a newsletter that will include Behind the Scenes and Bonus Content (You can sign up here).

I’m so excited to share Rett and Kate’s story with you! Roses is about a couple in college and him pursuing her. (The back cover copy is not finalized so I can’t share it just yet)

I started working on this book when I was in high school which means I have been working on it for 13 years. That’s INSANE but true. I had most of it written by the time I graduated from high school and pulled it back out when I was senior in college to finalize my first complete draft. During seminary, I had a friend that is a freelance editor offer to be my editor which I quickly took her up on. I made MAJOR edits on the last version and got rid of the last of high school Ruth Anne–listen, there are just some things that you don’t understand about college until you experience it.

I’m so incredibly grateful and thankful for all the people have prayed for me, encouraged me, and talked me through book things. This journey has been a long one but I have learned so much along the way.

Hopefully, the next book won’t take 13 more years. But I promise, Roses is COMING SOON. The best place to follow along is Instagram or like my BRAND NEW Facebook page, and don’t forget to sign up for my newsletter.

Thanks for following along on this journey. It’s SOO CLOSE to reaching it’s destination. I’ll be back when I have more details.
