Happy Saturday, everyone! Release week is wrapping up and it's been amazing…I've still got some news but I'll get to that.
Y'all…my babies are growing up. My daughter, Ro, texted me yesterday to tell me that a boy asked her to homecoming. 
She's 14.
Now at this age, I know it's mostly groups that all go as one unit, so am I okay with it from that perspective? 
Am I ready for her to be interested in dances instead of dress-up? 
In boys instead of Barbies?
In make-up instead of make-believe?
Nope. Not even a little bit.
But she has a dress and we're heading out this weekend to find some shoes. Wish us luck!

The book boxes I did earlier this Spring seemed to be a big hit. So much so that I'm working on some new ideas for one in the fall…
Are you interested if I do one? What would you like to see in a book box?

Want your copy? Like last time, these will be on a lottery-based system. I will tell you that I have less copies of these than I do of Written in the Beat. That being said, unlike last time, if you are not selected, you will be able to add yourself to a waitlist/preorder list for the next run.
