You should be able to pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other book selling platforms. Thanks so much for reading! :)
Rachelle Dekker I think probably a little of both. His advice and example have been extremely helpful, but the pressure to live up to his success can be pretty hindering at times. I'm just trying to mark out my own path, and be my own writer. That's all I can really do anyway!

Thanks for the great question!
Rachelle Dekker NEVER. STOP. WRITING. If you want to write, or if you want to be a writer then you have to write. There aren't any short cuts or magical formulas. The best thing you can do is just keep writing, and be proud of all your work. Even that first story that you hide in a drawer, the one that will never see the light of day. Each word is a necessary part of the journey, so just write.
Rachelle Dekker Someone asked me, "If you could tell your younger sisters one thing about their worth, what would it be?" The answer was easy, "I'd tell them that they were already chosen."

I think in the world that we live, it is easy to place your worth and identity in the validation we seek from others. I would hope that my sisters knew their true value by looking within themselves instead of looking to the world around them. I wrote The Choosing to explore that idea and hopefully paint a different picture for them on what self-worth could look like.
