Book lover, send yourself a surprise gift every month with Indie Book Connect’s book box. I love to come home and see that beautiful box, tattered and marked up, waiting for me to scoop it up and run into the house. The groceries can wait. I grab my scissors and slice through the tape with the care and precision of a scalpel. My chest swells. I moisten my lips and gently unfold the flaps. Breathe, I forgot to breathe. I peek over the top and gasp with delight. My eyes dart around the room to make sure no one is here to see my gem. Air whooshes out my lungs and across my lips. I swallow and savor the thrill of anticipation dancing beneath my sternum. I can’t, not yet. The groceries, the milk, there’s no time to enjoy. So I force myself to hide the gorgeous torn up box in my closet.

I peek over the top and gasp with delight. My eyes dart around the room to make sure no one is here to see my gem. I’m not ready to share it. Air whooshes out my lungs and across my lips. I swallow and savor the moment as the thrill of anticipation dances beneath my sternum. I can’t do it, not yet. Homework, groceries there’s no time to enjoy such a gift. So I force myself to hide the gorgeous torn up box in my closet.
Later, after the chores of the evening are complete, I lift my prize out of the closet and hide in the bathroom to unravel what I began earlier. The thrill of waiting has me on the edge of the tub. My mouth feels like I’ve been out in the desert heat all day. I peer inside the box and pull out another beautifully wrapped present. Slow and steady, I unfold the flap. My pulse races through my veins and my breath quickens. Angels sing and a bright light fills my eyes. Books and candles, and bookmarks, Oh my!

Small town gossip. If you live in a small town, or ever have, you know what I’m talking about. There’s always a couple in every generation who seem to dedicate themselves to being the queen of gossip. Yes, occasionally there is a king, but usually it’s a queen. And if you have ever been their subject, you know how Regan feels. We all react in different ways, but I think Regan handles it pretty good most of the time.
Mostly, Regan has her future to focus on. The gossip drives her desire to leave small town life behind. She has a plan, it’s not perfect, but she thinks she has the bases covered. Her small group of four friends have a plan for their future, too. Sometimes . . . plans change. Family has a strong influence on future plans–whether it’s fair or not.
I hope you enjoy Summer’s End. Let me know who your favorite character is. Tell me your favorite parts. Share Regan’s story with your friends, and help me get the word out.
Please leave a review on Amazon, or the retailer where you purchased Summer’s End. I greatly appreciate it.
