I want to introduce everyone to XJ Patterson. I hope she’s tough enough to be a revolutionary leader. In the beginning, she’s reluctant but she’s still on a mission.
I’m so excited. I’ve been fast at work on my rewrites and deep edits for my novel Breaking Free. I’m also totally in love with the book cover from Graphic Designer Eithne Ni Anluain. She did a terrific job on XJ’s book cover. It’s exactly the image I had in mind. I absolutely love the […]
