COVER LOVE for SWAY by Melanie Stanford!!!

My good friend and critique partner Melanie Stanford's first book, Sway, is coming out this winter!!! It's such a swoon-worthy romantic novel with music and ex-fiance's and so many awesome things! You won't want to miss it. But enough about that. Without further ado, here's the book blurb.

Ava Elliot never thought she’d become a couch surfer. But with a freshly minted—and worthless—degree from Julliard, and her dad squandering the family fortune, what choice does she have?

Living with her old high school friends, though, has its own drawbacks. Especially when her ex-fiancĂ© Eric Wentworth drops back into her life. Eight years ago, she was too young, too scared of being poor, and too scared of her dad’s disapproval. Dumping him was a big mistake.

In the most ironic of role reversals, Eric is rolling in musical success, and Ava’s starting at the bottom to build her career. Worse, every song Eric sings is an arrow aimed straight for her regrets.

One encounter, one song too many, and Ava can’t go on like this. It’s time to tell Eric the truth, and make a choice. Finally let go of the past, or risk her heart for a second chance with her first love. If he can forgive her…and she can forgive herself.

Ahhhhh! Breathtaking, right? The piano and the couple...yeah, it's so fabulous. Check out more about the author below!

Melanie Stanford reads too much, plays music too loud, is sometimes dancing, and always daydreaming. She would also like her very own TARDIS, but only to travel to the past. She lives outside Calgary, Alberta, Canada with her husband, four kids, and ridiculous amounts of snow.

Great Strides 2015

I'm a little late posting this but I guess better late than never, right? 

On May 30, I participated in a Great Strides walk. This is one of my favorite events to attend each year! I'm so happy to be a part of the CF Community and mingle with such amazing people. 

The picture below is me with our team captain, Regan Kate. If you've read my book, Changing Fate, you'll know the main character is Kate. See the connection? I wrote my book after meeting Regan and hearing her story. She is a friendly girl with big dreams and lots of love for those around her.

This is Regan's mom, Jami. She's a kind and wonderful person with a big heart. 

Our team captain rides in style.

This last picture is of me with Sara. I couldn't have written my book without her. Her journey with CF is amazing and she's still going strong post double lung transplant!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope everyone can take time to learn more about those around you and find a way to be involved. Standing for something is always better than falling for anything. 

Have a great weekend!!!
