Most exciting post EVER!

Have you ever wanted something so badly that you didn’t dare hope it would come true? Even in my twenties when I spent so much time day dreaming I would tell myself – it’s okay, maybe you’ll write all this in book some day, but I never really believed it. However, because of blogging, because of the friends I’ve made here, because of the encouragement I got from those first stumbling stories, I did finally write my book.  And today I want to reveal here the cover and my release date. So deep breath and a drum roll and…







The release date is December 11


 – circle your calendars. I’m thinking of having it tattooed on my forehead.  I’ll be announcing it on my new site PK Corey’s Reading Room tomorrow. I began that site just for promoting my writing and books (plural, I hope). But I’m new there and it doesn’t feel quite as much like home. The other writers have been so kind and I’m really getting to know some of them. But so many of you here have been with me for years. You all are the ones who have sent me love and support from the beginning.  So this was where I wanted to make my first reveal. I feel I can be more sentimental here. I know many of you here know what Cassie means to me, you know the ups and downs we’ve gone through. If things go as I want them too, there will be a series of Cassie books. But I can’t imagine anything surpassing the excitement I feel about this one. Thanks to all of you who made this possible.

I worried a lot over the cover - what if they wanted to put some sexy, young couple on it? But Lazy Day was just wonderful and listened to all my suggestions.
