I'd been writing a contemporary story about a girl who survived a suicide attempt and the reaction of her classmates when she returned to school. Ultimately it was hitting too close to home. Then I saw a commercial for a medication and one of the side effects was that it could cause suicidal thoughts, especially in young adults.

HOTEL RUBY--new cover and title

HOTEL RUBY has a new cover and a new title! I'll be honest, I loved the original cover. It was creepy and cool and the model was to die for :) But in paperback, we thought we'd try a little something different.
