How To Find A Princess Release Day Event

Book #2 of the Reluctant Royals series, HOW TO FIND A PRINCESS, is out in just a few weeks! On release day, I’ll be in conversation with Rebekah Weatherspoon at 7:00 ET.

“Women helped each other in ways small and large every day, without thinking, and that was what kept them going even when the world came up with new and exciting ways to crush them.”

“People bury the parts of history they don't like, pave it over like African cemeteries beneath Manhattan skyscrapers.”
Alyssa Cole, When No One is Watching
