And I hate to disappoint, but there will not be a sequel, so readers will have to decide for themselves where Patty and Rose Gold end up. The Recovery of Rose Gold is the UK title for the same book.

Where to Get Query Letter and/or Novel Feedback

Here’s a question I’m asked a lot: how do I know when my book is ready to query?

There is no right or wrong answer, but here’s mine—I felt my book was ready once I’d received a thumbs-up from multiple qualified sources. My novel manuscript sources were two professors who are published authors (my MFA thesis committee). My query letter sources were a literary agent via a Mslexia feedback forum and J

Hmm, great question, Mariia. Once I began receiving offers of representation from literary agents, that was the first time I felt like a "real" writer. Each step of the way since then has helped me gain confidence, though there are still plenty of da See Full Answer

“It was easier to manipulate someone if they didn’t perceive you as a threat.”
Stephanie Wrobel, Darling Rose Gold

“The debt between a child and her mother could never be repaid, like running a foot race against someone fifteen miles ahead of you. What hope did you have of catching up? It didn't matter how many Mother's Day cards you drew, how many cliches and vows of devotions you put inside them. You could tell her she was your favorite parent, wink like you were co-conspirators, fill her in on every trivial detail of your life. None of it was enough. It had taken me years to figure this out: you would never love your mother as much as she loved you. She had formed memories of you since you were a poppy seed in her belly. You didn't begin making your own memories until three, four, five years old? She'd had a running start. She had known you before you even existed. How could we compete with that? We couldn't. We accepted that our mothers held their love over us, let them parade it around like a flashy trinket, because their love was superior to ours.”
Stephanie Wrobel, Darling Rose Gold

“The bond between a mother and daughter is sacred. You know better than anyone that no matter how awful they are, we still find it in our hearts to love them.”
Stephanie Wrobel, Darling Rose Gold
