wishingWishing, Book 5 in the Forever series, is out now! It’s a stand-alone novella, but if you read Bring Me Back and Back Forever, this is Samantha’s story, set 8 years later. You will want to read this story.

Here’s the blurb:
When Samantha Abby loses her magazine job and her musician boyfriend, she says goodbye to New York, her writing career, and guys with guitars. Back home, she discovers her parents have a houseguest—ridiculously-sexy-in-Chuck-Taylors rock star Duncan Hall. She doesn’t want to share her bathroom or her family with the exact kind of trouble that broke her heart. Plus, Duncan is brilliant. With her writing dream in a dumpster, spending time with a beautiful guy whose creativity earns countless accolades is just salt in the wound.

Duncan should be on top of the world, but after losing his best friend to drugs, success feels like a joke. Meanwhile, his parents express their continued disdain for his music and the film he made to cope. Samantha’s step-dad, Christopher Penman, is as close as Duncan gets to a father figure, and working with him on a new record is a dream-come-true. Duncan doesn’t want to lose out on this found family by getting romantic with Samantha, but she’s not only gorgeous and smart, she sees right through to his core. Duncan and Sam find themselves no longer wishing to disappear. But do they have the courage to let themselves be found?

When a book is first scheduled for release, it always feels SO far off. Then you realize how much work you need to do for a proper launch and it feels like you’ll never have enough time.

More than anything, I’m excited for readers to get their hands on this story about sisters, families, and reclaiming lost love.

So what do you need to know? The preorder is live on all platforms. If you want to take a peek at the book, HEA USA Today ran an exclusive excerpt. I have also posted Chapter One.

It’s time for a Fall 2018 book preview! August is usually miserably hot in North Carolina, but we got a reprieve this year because it’s only been miserably humid. Seriously…it’s been raining for weeks and my skin is impossibly dewy (read: sweaty). The good news is that Fall is on the way. I know this because Thursday Night Football was on this week. The universe only torments me this way when crisp days, falling leaves, and apple cider season is on the horizon.

Secrets of a Somewhat Sunny Girl by Karen BoothThis fall I have two new releases, both of which I’m unbelievably excited about! The first is SECRETS OF A (SOMEWHAT) SUNNY GIRL, out October 16, in all eBook formats and paperback. The cover will be revealed Tuesday, August 21 on HEA USA Today. In the meantime, here’s a teaser! Secrets was a true labor of love for me and it has everything I love to write about–family dynamics, secrets, and a hero you will fall hard for. If you liked BRING ME BACK, you’ll love this one! It’s available to preorder now!
