I can’t believe summer is already here in Northern Michigan; the kids are out of school and the farm is bustling with excitement, and we have a bunch of exciting things happening, so I just wanted to shoot you an email to let you know what’s coming.
First, BIG GIRLS DO IT RUNNING is in full swing: the 8 week challengers are already starting week 4 already! I’m so excited about all of the awesome things happening in our challenge group and all the excitement for the way we are feeling. It really is a revolution! Congratulations to all of my #wilderway buddies who are wogging towards a health victory. The BIG GIRLS DO IT RUNNINGcompanion journal just went live last night! This journal is HUGE, with lots of room to record your journey and document your health changes. It has new recipes, charts, tips, and inspiration. You can find it HERE on Amazon! It also makes a great gift for a friend or family member who might want to start the health challenge with you.
Second, I’ve got two new audiobooks coming your way! Both TRASHED and AS1: HARRIS (the spin-off the ALPHA series) will be going live this week and next, respectively! My Audie award-winning narrators do an amazing job bringing these stories to life. I can’t wait for you to hear it!
You can preorder at Audible here:
ALPHA SECURITY 1: HARRIS
Last but not least, I’m releasing YOURS on June 20th, a standalone contemporary romance. My editors all said is the best book I’ve ever published. It’s going to make you cry and swoon. Get ready to read a second chance romance like you’ve never read before. This story is inspired in part by the beautiful song YOURS by Russell Dickerson. If you’ve never heard the song, make sure to check it out. The lyrics are tied into the story and really set the tone of the book. You can pre-order and check out a sample of YOURSat iBooks, HERE or grab it at your other favorite retailers on June 20th. You won’t want to miss this one. It should be your first read of the summer.
Here’s the blurb:
When my husband Oliver died, my life ended. My purpose, my passion, my everything bled out with him on the side of the Pacific Coast Highway.
Ollie was an organ donor. His eyes, his brain, his lungs, his heart…parts of my Ollie went out and saved lives.
Then his heart, beating in another man’s chest, found its way back to me, and I found myself faced with an impossible choice: hold on to the pain and beauty of the past and the memory of the man I loved, or reach for a bold new future, knowing each heartbeat will be a reminder of all I’ve lost.
* * *
I wasn’t supposed to live past thirty.
My grandfather died at forty-five. Heart failure.
My father died at thirty-eight. Heart failure.
The doctors told me my whole life that I wouldn’t see my thirty-first birthday. My heart was going to give out. It was just a matter of time: a rare blood type and an unusually large heart meant essentially zero chance of a transplant.
I proved them all wrong…by dying on my thirty-first birthday.
And then I woke up, alive, with another man’s heart inside my chest, and his widow on my conscience.
I spent my whole life preparing for death, and now I have to learn how to live. Only, as I soon discovered, living is the easy part.
Loving, and allowing myself to be loved…well, that’s a whole lot harder.
Thanks so much for reading! I hope you enjoy these releases and the warmer weather.
Let’s have a great summer!
xoxo– Jasinda and Jack too!
