Finally. I began writing this book 3 years ago after a life-changing event. It has morphed from the original story into a tale of love and loss. I bled the 57,000-ish words within this cover. I truly hope readers respect Alee’s journey. There is a little bit of her in all of us. Alee is
For those indie authors out there gettin’ your hustle on, I have a trick for you. As you may know, Amazon has taken over Createspace. (sad) In doing so, they have fucked us.
