Looking toward the light

I am getting set to release June, Into the Light later this month. It’s on preorder on Kindle right now at the special price of $0.99.

June is part of the award-winning Between the Cracks series, but can be read as a stand-alone novel. Twice I have thought I was done with this series, but it just keeps coming back!

After releasing Ronnie, readers were still asking for more. I explained that each child’s story had been told, and I wasn’t really planning for any more books to be added to the series. (Although, there are a couple of second-generation Simpsons who might still have stories to tell…)

But readers said they wanted to hear more about June. While June had a title role in book 2, June & Justin, that book was more from Justin’s perspective than June’s. My readers felt it made her out to be the ‘bad guy’ and accused me of abandoning her, not giving her a chance for a ‘happily ever after.’

So after some discussion, I sat down and worked through some thoughts on June’s journey. 150,000 words later, I had drafted June, Into the Light.

About June, Into the Light

June Simpson has lost everything. Her family, the love of her life, and now her freedom. 

And it’s her own fault.

Drugs have taken her health and what little happiness remained in her life, and now, incarcerated after a failed attempt at armed robbery, June is forced to detox and to face the reality of the misery and abuse she has perpetrated on those closest to her, especially her children.

Getting clean is just the first of her challenges, and as difficult as it is, may be the easiest part.

The path ahead is filled with so many obstacles she can’t see her way through to the other side. Facing her children and convincing them that she has really changed and is capable of a healthy relationship with them seems like an insurmountable task.

Act now

You can read an excerpt from June below and preorder it on Kindle for just $0.99. The price will go up after release.
