It’s my bookiversary! Get Ruby free

Oct 15, 2016 is the third anniversary of publishing my first book. That is, not publishing the first book I wrote, but publishing for the first time. Three years ago, I released Looking Over Your Shoulder into the world. If you haven’t read it, you can currently pick up the ebook from Kindle or any of the other major online stores for $0.99.

But you can’t have a bookiversary without a freebie! (Yes, that’s a rule.) So I have put Ruby, Between the Cracks on for free at the Kindle Store and other major online stores. Last year, Ruby won a place on the In the Margins Top Ten Books for Teens list. It is much beloved on Wattpad (with 169,000 reads and 3,000 votes) and now you can add it to your virtual bookshelf for free.

Read a sample or jump directly to the Kindle store.

In case you’re wondering what to read after Ruby, books 2 and 3 of the series, (June & Justin, Michelle) are out, and book 4 (Chloe) is scheduled to be published in January. And well, if you are looking for something else, I have quite a variety to choose from, including the new Medical Kidnap Files series.

If you asked Ruby, she’d tell you she’s happy with her life.  She’s tough and independent and doesn’t depend on anyone else.  The road that has led her here has not been easy, and she’s blocked a lot of it from her memory.

But things aren’t as rosy as she would have everyone believe, and the road ahead of her is filled not only with gangs, drugs, and depression, but other challenges that Ruby hasn’t even imagined.

You know it’s a great book when you have to keep reminding yourself that the characters are not real people. I really cared about Ruby, and she gave me some bad moments. I desperately hoped her story would have a happy ending. 

“Ruby” exposes the complex and brutal relationship between mental illness, poverty and abuse … a page turner I had to finish 

“Ruby” really put me through the wringer and I actually had to put it down a few times because I needed to return to reality … There was no chance I was going to stop reading until I knew how the story ended! … I seriously can’t wait for book two!

The Between the Cracks books have been absolutely AMAZING… as soon as I started to read “Ruby”, I just had to keep going.

I wish I could forget the book Ruby and read it all over again.

This book is utterly amazing, I find myself having more empathy for children in these types of situations than ever before. My heart seriously yearns for them. I can’t put this book down.

Tell me what you think!

But a brutal murder soon reminds her that there are worse things than competition. Especially when she is discovered with the murder weapon in her hand.

Worried that Vic’s brother Jeremy may be involved, Erin tries to protect him from the investigation.
