Happy Book Release Day!!!

Michelle Merrill, one of my awesome CPs, has a book coming out TODAY!!! I'm excited to participate in her blog release party!

All Kate wants is to live. Battling cystic fibrosis is hard enough, dying from it is even harder. When her mom moves them closer to the hospital in the middle of her senior year, Kate’s determined to isolate herself—saving everyone the trouble of befriending a dying girl. It’s a difficult task when cheerful optimist Giana insists on being Kate’s friend.
Kate’s resolve falters even more when curly-haired Kyler captivates her with his sweet melodies. As her emotional walls collapse, Kate realizes the people she’s been pushing away may be the ones giving her a reason to live. But it might be too late.

Here are 2 fun facts about Michelle:
 13. I do laundry on Mondays and eat pizza on Fridays. Laundry takes all day, lots of loads, and I don’t fold them until nighttime when I can watch a movie to pass the time. Friday night homemade pizza: one cheese, one pepperoni, and a pan of breadsticks. They’re sooooo yummy!
 14. I never get enough sleep. Ever. I’ve been a night owl since I was little. In fact, I think I’m part zombie. It’s the only explanation on how I can run off so much steam. Or maybe that’s a train. And now I’m rambling…that’s a side effect of this ongoing problem.
And a little bit about Michelle: Michelle Merrill loves kissing her hubby, snuggling her kids, eating candy, reading books, and writing first drafts. She names her computers after favorite fictional characters and fictional characters after favorite names. To learn more about her, visit www.authormichellemerrill.com.
