Submitted and soon to release!

Rarity pre-order will be available 9/4/14 via amazon. The official release date is 9/12/14.   It will be available as paperback and ebook.  Here's is the cover art and the blurb about the book.  It's a young adult romance and I'm excited about this story because it includes a young man who's recently diagnosed with a rare disorder.  It effects his life on so many levels. 

Being diagnosed with a rare disorder is incredibly frustrating.  Local doctors often have minimal knowledge of how to care for you and as a patient, or parent of the patient, you must learn all you can and teach the local doctors.  Unfortunately some doctors are not open to information or suggestions put forward by their patients. 

Rare disease research also doesn't have very much finanacial support. I will donate a portion of my book sales to fund the research of vascular Ehlers Danlos Syndrome.  Thank you to all who purchase my book, countless families ,as well as my own, are grateful for the support.

It's her junior year at Stanton High.  Brogen, an empathic teen, is looking forward to another uneventful year with her buddy Meg at her side.  Meg and Brogen are not in the in-crowd, actually, they aren't in any crowd.  They are content keeping a low profile and doing their own thing.  

But the first day of school brings Becca, the blonde babe, and Jay, the charismatic guy who doesn't fit any stereotype.  These two new students pull Brogen out of her comfort zone and  into a new social situation.    And with the good parts of this new situation...comes the bad. 

Becca is attracted to Jay and is prepared to stomp on the competition when it comes to making Jay her boyfriend.  Brogen wants no part of any high school drama, but life...or fate keeps putting Jay and Brogen on a path together.  This puts a target on Brogen's back and she's not sure Jay is worth the wrath of Becca. 

As they journey through their school year, several life changing events alter the relationship between Jay and Brogen.  But the question remains, should they give in to fate and give love a chance? Or fight it and take the easy road?

Working on the Cover

Brogen's nightly art journal

She has the gift, or curse, of being empathic.  Some days the emotions of others are enough to send her in a deep depression.  Until she can learn to shield herself she copes by drawing in a journal on a nightly basis, running, and meditating.  I tried to capture what I thought a page from her journal would look like.  It's not done.. just a sneak peek but I'm hoping to use it for the cover art. Enjoy!  Hoping to release Rarity the first part of September.
