Now and Again release day

Now and Again paperbackIn 2010, I signed up for NaNoWriMo in an attempt to write my first novel, Now and Again.

It… went.

Basically, I was frustrated with my inability to do the story in my head justice. The plot was (at least, in my mind) sound, but my words were inadequate. Now and Again was trunked until I stumbled across it in the back of my closet around a year ago.

I’d thought often of that first attempt to write a book, usually cringing as I remembered feeling frustrated in front of a computer screen. Regretting that I couldn’t give Em and Cole the ending that they deserved or their introduction to the world.

Maybe it was the distance from the manuscript that I’d been able to gain with time, but I liked the book. Sure, it needed a complete rewrite, and several rounds of edits, but…

I began writing. Again.

…So here we are five years after the first draft. And I’m really, really happy that I took the time to make this into a book that I want to share. That I’m excited to be able to share.

Because not only was it was my first book, but Em, in particular, is special to me. Her fears may be the ones I’ve related to the most so far of any of my characters. (Love ya, Bree, but I have no evil kings to be afraid of.) Now and Again is unlike any of my other published works, but I hope that you enjoy it.

And I’m so glad that Em and Cole finally got their ending.

Now and Again is available now!

Now and Again – reveals galore!

Happy Monday, my friends!

I’ve been quiet on the blog– but I have a good excuse. I’ve been working my little butt off in order to get Now and Again ready for my readers by October and I’m pleased to say it’s nearly there! So, in this post, I’m not just revealing a release date. I’m also revealing the blurb. I’m revealing the trailer. And I’m revealing the cover!

Let’s get started.

First off, let’s have a blurb, shall we?


Unemployed. Broke. Maid of Honor.

All (unfortunately) words that describe Em Hayes.

Without any job leads in San Francisco, Em caves to her mother’s promise of free rent and returns home. Her best friend, Nikki, couldn’t be more thrilled. Em’s degree in Event Management is gathering dust, and what better way to put it to use than planning Nikki’s wedding?

There’s just one flaw in that plan: Cole Connors. The girls’ former roommate. And part of the reason Em hasn’t been back since college graduation.

Em’s never been able to forget Cole—or how close they were before she pushed him aside and ran for the hills. Cole’s never forgotten Em either— but in the past two years, she hasn’t given him much choice but to try.

And, according to Nikki, there’s no better pair to plan the wedding of her dreams.

Em’s usually good at squashing messy feelings, but being around Cole again brings them all rushing to the surface.

And this time, she’s not sure she wants to run.


You’ll be able to add Now and Again to your e-reader of choice on October 26, 2015. And you can add it on Goodreads now.

Paperbacks will also be available, but possibly at a later date– I will obviously keep you all apprised through this blog, my newsletter, and social media (linked in the blog’s sidebar).

And now, for the pretties! The trailer and the cover!
