I thought last week was a crazy busy week, but I should have known better. This week is going to be even busier! I hope you like hearing from me because you’re going to hear from me a few more times than normal this week! You already heard from yesterday and now today. Then tomorrow, Wednesday and Saturday! But you all love me because I bring you news you want to actually read, right? (Don’t tell me otherwise, I might have to eat a lot of chocolate and that won’t bode well for my figure.)

I have 3 fantastic books launching this week; the first came out today! That makes for a great Monday, right?

P.S. If you missed the special going on over at Storius, go check out the Alison Brownstone Audio Bundles (Books 1-8 and Books 9-15). They’re a steal!

This Week’s New Releases

Title: Lean on Me
Release Date: 07/08/2024

A perfect life… or the perfect lie?

Sixteen, wealthy, popular, and dating the hottest guy in school, my life seems ripped from the pages of a magazine. But those achievements create a spotlight that casts dangerous shadows.

When a pregnancy test shatters my illusions, I discover how quickly everything can change.

My boyfriend, Jake, the town’s football hero, will let nothing derail his future. Not even our baby.

Betrayed and alone, I’m left fighting for my life against the boy everyone thinks is perfect. With only my best friend, Matt, on my side, I’m determined to protect the tiny life growing inside me.

But in a world where image is everything and Jake can do no wrong, can I survive his wrath and expose the truth behind his perfect facade?

Will my child and I become another statistic, or will we triumph against the odds stacked against us?

Lean on Me is a stand-alone novel and contains subjects that may be difficult to read for some such as DV, teen pregnancy, and discussions of pregnancy loss. Please check the full list of trigger warnings at the beginning of the book.
