DEAR JAMIE, LOVE RORY IS HERE!!!!!!!

Thursday, July 19, 2018

It's here! "Dear Jamie, Love Rory" is here!!! =D Typing that out feels so surreal... And holding my story in my hands, staring at my name plastered on the pretty cover... THIS CALLS FOR MORE FIREWORKS.


I want to give a BIG thank you to everyone at One Teen Story (they're amazing!) who helped make this little dream of mine a reality. From editing my story with Patrick Ryan to seeing it in layout to then staring at a box full of my story, this has been an amazing experience just getting it closer to publication. And now to see it published... I'm blown away, to be honest.

My mom made funfetti cupcakes to celebrate! =D 

Thank you to my family, who didn't complain when I stayed up way past midnight writing this story and brought me cocoa and snacks (very important) during the writing process. They're my biggest cheerleaders, and I'm so blessed to have them. Jamie, Rory, and Nikki's story couldn't have happened without any of the people I've mentioned. Seriously, I can't believe how much God has blessed me, and I want to say THANK YOU to Him to, for giving me this wonderful gift of writing and blessing me so much.

I'd also like to thank my amazing readers for being super encouraging and sweet-I couldn't ask for better readers! To celebrate my story's release, I'm hosting a blog party! There will be a giveaway, a playlist, lots of pictures, and more! I hope to see you here! =)

Update: It has come to my attention that there was a change in the launch date that I was unaware of, so next week is the official launch! Nonetheless, the party will go on and the links updated as soon as possible. Thanks for all of your wonderful comments! 


Do you like writing short stories? What about reading them?

  1. YAAAY! Congratulations!!

    I read the excerpt and OH MY GOSH. SO GOOD!! I have no idea how you managed to convey so much emotion in that one little story snippet. Mind officially blown.

    As for writing short stories, I generally lean towards writing longer stories because I have so much to say, and it takes up too much space. XD But, I did just finish writing a flash fiction piece, so perhaps my tastes are changing.

    1. Thank you, Kara! =) You're so sweet. <3

      I understand why you lean towards longer stories-I usually end up nearly exceeding word counts for contests and such for that reason, but this time was able to stay beneath it! =) Flash fiction? Yay! I love flash fiction!
