5 Year Old Ava's Book Cover Reveal Date

My five year old niece, Ava, wrote a book today. She then informed me that she wanted to do a video for the cover reveal date like she and Clare did with It Took a War yesterday. So without further ado, Ava's cover reveal date video. =)

Cover Reveal Date for IT TOOK A WAR Starring Ava and Clare

In this video, my nieces announce the cover release date for my book It Took a War. 
Thanks Ava and Clare! Love you girls!
Check back here on Saturday, November 1st to see the book cover!


Writing Updates

It Took a War is currently in it's last stages of edits (woot woot!). My first editor was my mom who polished it up and helped me have confidence in it. Then, my awesome sister-in-law (who has a degree in English, so that works out splendidly!) helped me with grammar. I seriously think she should start her own editing service! Another editor is my friend, Emily Chapman who just got my manuscript in the mail today! She sent me a picture of it so I know the book made it safe and sound. She's awesome at catching things I never would have noticed. =) Also, my amazing friend, Michaela, is checking for historical accuracy. She's the master of Civil War history. I have such a wonderful group of editors. Thank you awesome people!!!

Rachel Rossano is making a beautiful cover!! I'll be sure to let you all know when the cover reveal will be! I seriously cannot wait to share it!! If you're interested in being apart of the cover reveal, send me an email at
