Long-awaited release of SNOW FRIGHT!

Well, friends. Today is the day. It is the long-awaited release of Snow Fright!! I couldn't be more excited!

Some of you have been long-time fans of the Scarily Ever Laughter series and have waited since 2016 to see this book's publication. Others are new friends and are just learning about the series. To me, this book has lived in my heart forever. Gnawing away like worms in a corpse. Eating me alive from the inside out. Haha! I jest. I love this story. It has been a long journey though and I'm so glad to finally be able to say that Snow Fright is here. For good.

At the conference I attended earlier this month in Vegas, they spoke a lot about relationship building. Not just with fans, friends, and family but with our business partners, work-for-hire, editors, and illustrators. I didn't realize just how important those relationships were until I walked through the refiner's fire the last few years.

When I put a call out for illustrators, I had no idea I'd receive over 200 applications. I also didn't know that I'd forge such a fantastic working relationship with my illustrator, Roch Hercka. As one of the many applicants, I nearly passed him over. Although his portfolio was gorgeous, I didn't think it would be the best fit for the series. However, I took a chance, asked for a character sketch, and knew immediately he was not only the perfect artist for the job but that I'd been inspired to give him a chance. I owe him a lot for making the Scarily Ever laughter series come to life with his gorgeous and creepy illustrations. I'm really thankful to have forged such a fantastic working relationship with him over the last 2 1/2 years. It's not easy to put your trust in someone else, but Roch has proven time and again that he cares for my book babies as much as I do!

My long-time friend, beta reader, and editor TP Jagger, has been with me almost since the beginning. His insight into my characters, world building, and catching all of my bad grammar is just top-notch. Where would I be without him? I don't want to know.

Of course, I'm super grateful for my family, my friends, the fans, and YOU! The emails over the last three years asking for the final book in the series are the reason I kept going, when I really wanted to give up. Thank you!

Snow Fright is by far the longest in the series. At 336 pages, over 60,000 words, 55 chapters, and over 35 illustrations, it truly is a work of heart!

As much as I wanted to call this the end, I just couldn't. I love these characters way too much. I love their world. I love their crazy antics. So Scarily Ever Laughter will continue! I'll start with Beauty and the Beastlings because so many have requested a story from Ethan's point of view. I can't wait to deliver it!

Thank you again for hanging on for Snow Fright! Thank you so much for your emails and encouragement. You'll never know how much it meant.
