Asking for help is a sign of weakness

But I’m not ashamed to beg sometimes.

With that knowledge out there, I have a huge favor to ask …

If you happened to read that book I published last year and did not leave a review at Amazon/Barnes & Noble/Goodreads, please consider doing so. Reviews are not for me (though, I will admit, I pored over the ones that were left and picked apart To Have based on the not so nice reviews left on Goodreads and Amazon because criticism is hard, y’all), instead they’re for other readers. Since they’re for potential readers, it doesn’t have to be a huge post about why you hated or loved the book. Honestly, I’ve seen reviews that are as simple as, “Three stars. It was a good read.”

Something like that would be awesome if you haven’t left a review, and I’ll tell you why.

With any luck, the second book will be out by the beginning of June. I overshot my goal of having To Hold out by March 1 because it took me a thousand years to edit since I basically couldn’t sit and focus for more than 10 minutes at a time. So now, my goal is June 7 – I’ve even written it on the calendar and circled it in purple pen, and I put it in the ARC request posted on my author page – and I hope you’ll read it and leave a review then, too, even if you hate it (but I’d rather you love it).

If you’d like to add it on Goodreads, you can do that here. I haven’t uploaded a cover yet because we’re still finalizing everything. I’ll probably post the synopsis this week. I’ll also buy the ISBN for the paperback. And not totally lose my mind trying to format everything.
My plan is to also do an eARC giveaway on my author page in the very near future, so if you haven’t liked that Facebook page yet, maybe go do that. If you want to. I really don’t want to force anyone to like me because I’m kind of awkward at times and not everyone wants to be friends with the awkward girl. For instance, this entire post is awkward and it’s taken me two weeks to write it because I feel bad for asking people to do things … like review things.
Now I’ve gone and made it weird, haven’t I?
Okay, if you’re a blogger and would like to receive an ARC of To Hold for review, fill out this form and I’ll be in touch!
