It's nearly here!
One week until PAS DE DON'T is out in the world.
Folks, it’s nearly here. On May 2nd, a week from today, PAS DE DON’T will be published and available at booksellers everywhere. If you pre-ordered it from an independent bookseller, you might have it already (gulp! I hope you like it!), but if you prefer to buy from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc., or to borrow it from your library, May 2nd is the big day.
There are moments when this whole thing feels like a dare that got completely out of hand; one day in 2020 I decided I to try to writing a romance novel, because I thought I might enjoy it, and it turns out I freaking loved it, and here we are a week from pub day. Uh, psych, I guess?
It feels like a dare, but also a dream. This book is about two hurt people who figure out how to heal enough to love each other the way they both deserve. It’s about the human consequences of bad policy, and about the kinds of friends who make you brave and a little bit reckless. It features beautiful beaches, strong coffee, delicious food, dance breaks, and hot sex. It has a ridiculous pun in the title because, well, I love a ridiculous pun, and this book is extremely me.
If you want to come hear me talk a little more about this book, and about writing in general, I hope you’ll come out to one of the events I’ve got lined up in the coming months:
April 29 - Love’s Sweet Arrow, Chicago, with Tinia Montford and Brittney Mmutle
May 4 - East City Bookshop, Washington DC, with Andie J. Christopher
May 16 - Prairie Lights, Iowa City, with Katie Runde
June 9 - Sidekick Coffee & Books, Iowa City, with Denise Williams
June 17 - Barnes & Noble, Coral Ridge Mall Coralville
Lastly, you’ve still got a few days to enter the giveaway I’m running on Instagram. The prize is an annotated copy of the book, with margin notes full of behind-the-scenes info about what inspired the story, the settings, and the characters.
That’s it from me. I hope you love this book, and stay tuned for some exciting news about what’s next,
