Announcing My First Book: Beautiful Sorrows

Oh, my friends! My loves! The day that I was waiting for is finally here! I’m absolutely delighted to announce that my first book, a short story collection titled Beautiful Sorrows, will be out next month!  If only you knew how excited I am.  Maybe you could think back to your first book, or dream ahead to it, and then you’d know.  I can’t stop smiling.

Shock Totem Publications is putting it out, and I’m astounded at how much work and care they’ve put into this.  It’s humbling.

Please read the official announcement here!  You can pre-order the paperback here. And check out the beautiful cover art. I think it’s perfect.  Have a great day!
