Damn, Girl. That Sucks.  Book Cover!

Damn, Girl. That Sucks. Book Cover!

Hi, Everybody!  Mary Kate, here.  Now that we’ve revealed the cover and title to you (we so hope you love them as much as we do!), I’d like to take a quick moment to update you on the progress of the book.

As you know, my husband and I have been in the middle of a substantial relocation move to Philly.  This move has devoured so much more of my time than I could’ve ever imagined.  So as much as I hate to have to tell you, I have to push the release date back a bit.  I know.  It totally sucks!  However, I just really want to make sure I’ve done the best job I can sharing Ivy’s story with you … so with some more editing and revision and a final pass through with my editor, I hope to have this book in your hands later this summer.  I will keep you posted on my progress.  And I will do my very best to get Ivy’s story, Damn, Girl. That Sucks. into your excited hands as soon as possible!!!

I can’t tell you how much your support and patience … and loving enthusiasm mean to me!!!  I am so grateful to have you as a reader and fan!  You all mean the world to me!!!  Thank you with all my heart!!!

Mary Kate
