THE WEEKEND BUCKET LIST IS BORN!!!

I’m thrilled to say that my first book for Duet Books, The Weekend Bucket List, is born!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It wasn’t an easy gestation, metaphorically speaking. For the first time, I wrote a work of general fiction, and for the first time, some of my regular romance readers were left unsatisfied.

They felt the book was incomplete without romance.

But I have a goal and it is to endorse and embrace another important kind of love: friendship.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a teen, I missed out on the fullest friendship experience; I was focused on finding Mr. Right. I went through LOTS of Mr. Rights until I found Mr. Mia, but I never put the effort into finding Mr./Ms. BFF. Yes, I have had my share of acquaintances, but rarely have I experienced a beloved friend (s) with whom I shared a platonic passion.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And so, there were aches and pains and three-star pre-reviews, which didn’t live up to my hopes and maybe even my expectations, but I embrace my story of complex and passionate friendships with very flawed characters. Like Cody, below… Teens need stories that glorify FRIENDSHIP.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And I hope you choose to give it a read.

Because we all need friends.

<3 Mia
