Giftchild Release!

My contemporary YA novel, GIFTCHILD, officially releases today!

You can find it on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle edition.

AND, if you buy the paperback today, you can use the Amazon code HOLIDAY30 to take 30% off.  (This works on any one book today on Amazon.  Just saying.)

I am so excited to share this book with you.  Over the next few weeks I’m going to be blogging about the idea behind it, and the drafts that went into it including some deleted scenes.  But for today, I’m just going to leave you with the cover and the blurb:

Penny adores her best friend Rodney. He’s always there for her, and she knows they’d be the perfect couple—except that they’re still in high school, and she’s watched too many friends go through painful breakups. Besides, Penny has bigger things to worry about—like her mother, who desperately wants to have more children. 

After an endless string of miscarriages and failed adoptions, Penny’s mother is ready to give up hope. But Penny has the perfect plan: if she gets pregnant, she can give her mother the baby she’s always wanted. Penny’s sure this is the right thing to do, but only after she sets her plan in motion does she realize that sex will change her relationship with Rodney—in ways that she never expected. And the more she tries to fix things for her mother, the more she risks losing everything she wants for herself. 

All Penny wants is for the people she loves to be happy. So why isn’t anything going the way that she planned?
