Speaking of details… They are my favorite part of my books too. Creating a character, setting a scene… Those are the best parts of being an author. For more information about the setting of Feels Like Falling, my sixth novel, which releases April 28, check out this video!



Our friend and artist Maren Devine also knows a thing or two about details. I am also so excited to announce that everyone who has preordered or ordered Feels Like Falling and sent me their receipt through May 3 will receive the fun preorder freebies below! If you have already sent your receipt, you’re covered! If you haven’t, please send to [email protected] We will be emailing all freebies on May 4 to everyone who ordered.


  1. Feels Like Falling deleted scenes.
  2. 8×10 Printable of Feels Like Falling painting by Maren Devine Art. (Above!)
  3. Printables of Feels Like Falling Quotes.
  4. Feels Like Falling Desktop Backgrounds.
  5. Book Club Recipes from My Family Recipe Books and Feels Like Falling.
  6. Feels Like Falling Discussion Questions. (Which are not included in the book.)


Also, preorder TODAY, send your receipt to [email protected] along with your address, and I’ll send a free 5×7 card of Maren’s lovely painting (Signed on the back by me in case you can’t get your book signed this time!) and this gorgeous quote–and I’ll pick 5 winners to receive a Feels Like Falling candle! They’re 100% soy and smell like heaven in a (recycled) glass container!

It really is all about the details, isn’t it? Hope your day is full of all the best ones!
