A book that drained me emotionally to write.
But a book I was insanely proud of.
And a book that made a lot of you cry.
I'm not sorry about that, just saying.
This book has come a long way in a year.
The cover changed three times.
The title changed once.
We started here:
While I thought (and still think) that it's gorgeous, it just didn't fit the story.
And if we're totally honest, I never really wanted a full face shot of any person.
But I couldn't find a better image to work with at that point.
Enter second cover:
The young couple.
The not seeing any faces.
And it worked....
For a while.
I still absolutely LOVE this cover.
But there was something about it, whether the cover or the title, that was drawing very few readers in.
So I made the decision to repackage the entire book.
While the content stayed exactly the same, the cover, title, and blurb all got an upgrade.
So now, we're here:
This cover you guys.
This is the cover.
If you've read the book, I hope you can see how the cover ties in.
The new title "Love Found" makes a ton more sense. And with "Lost" being crossed off on the cover, I feel it makes even more sense.
Haley loses love, yet she finds love.
Totally makes sense.
At least to me.
And this image was one I had been working with since the very beginning.
We just had a hard time making it work, for whatever reason.
Probably because I wanted a different background and that just didn't work with this particular image.
So I kept it super simple this time.
And it worked.
I love this cover. And I love the new title.
I really think it makes more sense with the story.
Anyway, it's been a year since this book released.
One freaking year.
I will never get over the fact that I have books out there.
That people actually read.
Thank you to anyone who has read Love Found over this past year.
I've read every one of the reviews you've left - and each time one of you says this book made you cry, I can't stop the grin.
Not that I intentionally went into writing this story to make you cry.
No. It just means that the characters/story connected with you enough that you had all that emotion.
It means that I'm not a horrible writer.
Even though that's what it's felt like for the past year.
...But that's another blog post.
So again, thank you, thank you, thank you, to everyone who picked up this book and read it.
And thank you to anyone who recommend it to others.
And thank you to those who left reviews.
Reviews help other readers find the book.
So if you haven't left a review, and want others to read this book, maybe you'll consider leaving one now.
If not, I still love you for reading it.

Okay, I'm all done rambling now.
Thank you again! I seriously cannot say it enough!
