Feeling like a freebird. 

Life, lately, feels like a Tilt-a-Whirl: exhilerating, topsy-turvy, unnerving, the glimpse of a vista from the heights, and the coasting ahhh as I dip and bob back up. Incredible really, as it should be. In the last few weeks I've traveled coast-to-coast, realized dreams, questioned some, and stood resolutely (and barefoot) on a mountain top, and in the sand as waves crashed around my ankles, the sun like crushed-crystal sparkling in the water. I've laughed and cried, gained and lost. It's been beautiful and tremendous and ground breaking

As the dust begins to settle, I see the path that has brought me to this moment, with more clarity than ever. Inhale. Exhale. In exactly one month, the novella, Mirrored, the follow-up to In the Desert (Book 2 in the Follow your Bliss series) hits bookshelves. I didn't have to give a kid with blistering acne and the only the hint of reflection behind dull eyes a couple tickets for this ride. I'm on it, willfully, buckled in, hands aloft. Whee! 

An aside, those were my favorite sunnies and they broke the other day. Boo hoo. 

With that in mind, I'm revving up for the Mirrored launch with 3 goodies:

1. I'm giving away a digital copy of In the Desert on Grown Up Fan Girl along with a guitar pick necklace and a couple other surprises. 

2. Surfaced, the short-story novella companion for To the Sea (Book 1 in the Follow your Bliss series) is FREE on Amazon all weekend. 

3. The second chapter of In the Desert is up on Wattpad for your reading pleasure. 

I'd love to hear from you, find out what you're liking about the Follow your Bliss series, what you want more of, or talking about books in general. What's on your summer reading list? What story do I have to happily lose an afternoon to while lounging on the beach? Do tell!
