Look what I got in the mail. These are the proofs for CAYMAN SUMMER! We made a tiny format change, resubmitted the files, and I clicked the okay button last night. That means, yes, you can ORDER it NOW!!! The link takes you to my CAYMAN SUMMER CreateSpace store--it's part of Amazon, so anywhere you can order from Amazon, you can place an order here. CAYMAN SUMMER should be available on Amazon's general site in the next few days.

We also corrected and resized UNBROKEN CONNECTION. The new edition looks great. The first was one was huge experiment, and we decided to make it smaller--closer to TAKEN BY STORM's paperback size. All three books look great together now.

If you don't already have a copy of UNBROKEN CONNECTION, you can order the new and improved edition now, too. 

Oh, and I wanted to share the back cover copy with you guys. I only used blurbs from my loyal blog readers. I wish I could have put a quote from each one of you on the back. There wasn't room for that, but I got a lot of you!  Here's what it says:

Journey with Michael and Leesie to Grand Cayman Island. Time, sunshine, and Michael’s devotion heal Leesie’s physical pain, but grief and guilt haunt her. Michael will do anything to find the old Leesie who prayed, spoke of visions, and kept the rules. For Leesie, that girl is lost forever. Rules? What’s the point? She’s ready to break every one.

“An honest, original, emotional roller-coaster ride of a tale that is oh-so-beautiful.” Bee at Dreamcatcher’s Lair

“This story is about two souls who love each other deeply and how far they will fight and grow for their forever.” Michelle at Windowpane Memoirs

“Awesome, amazing. Did I mention that I loved it?” Chaleese

“Unique and brave . . . I won’t ever forget or compare it to any other.” Jenna

“The ending is perfect. I LOVE it.” Myrrhaya

“Perfect reads for teens (and their moms—like me).” Anonymous

“It’s beautiful! I love it. . . . I want more!” Brandi at  Blkosiner’s Book Blog

“I wish it could go on forever.” Nora 

“I love, love it!” Gayle

I want to put together a blog tour for CAYMAN SUMMER starting in June. Let me know if you want to be involved. Thanks all of you for your support and patience--and loving Michael and Leesie enough to hang in there for the entire journey. Happy Easter! 


  1. Congratz! This new is so bittersweet - finally an ending to Michael and Leesie's tale..but NOOOO an ENDING!
    I'd love to participate in the blog tour! That would be a ton of fun!

  2. Thanks, ladies.

    Lissa, Fire me off an email, and I'll get you in the schedule. I usually answer interview questions for the blog tour stops. I'm going to try to have a trailer for CAYMAN SUMMER and one for all three books to unveil. And I'll have a contest running here on this blog that you can link to. Still thinking about how to manage it. Oh, I love to write character interviews, too. You might want to think about that. Thanks!!

  3. Congratulations -- very exciting! I'll have to get my order in soon! :-)

  4. Congratulations Angela! :) I'm glad that you've finally finished the trilogy! It's amazing to see your books lined up like that. Ugh, I haven't read Unbroken Connection yet! I need to catch up.

  13. Thanks so much for putting my comment on the back! It was insane to see my name on the back of a book I love so much. :) And I'm sad that the blog process is over, but it feels great to have Cayman sitting on my shelf next to the other two.
