I can’t believe it. 5 years ago I published La Douleur Exquise.
It was an emotional achievement after a tough year. I had escaped the clutches of a fraudulent publisher (anyone remember Underwater Mountains? What a joke…) headed by an abusive and manipulative man who scammed many fledgling writers.
The way my life changed after that has been nothing short of amazing and scary. La Douleur Exquise was an instant bestseller, and went on to be a Goodreads Choice Awards Finalist. You believed in me, and hundreds of thousands of words later, you still do.
To celebrate that day 5 years ago, I will be having a little party in my reader group, Rogue’s Rebels. I will be giving away books starting at 11 CST today, and some amazing authors will join me at 5 CST.
