Welcome back to the All About It blog series that introduces readers to my book series!
This week I’m diving into a newer series… which isn’t really all that new. The first two books were written a long time ago, but they needed a lot of rewriting and editing. Once I had the inspiration to push them together into a series, it sort of took on a life of its own.
If you know me, you know I’m a quirky, clumsy person, and I love to portray some of my characters the same way. Well, the I’m Pretty Sure About That series is my quirky, weird character series! You’ll find everything from crummy break-ups to dealing with the death of a family member in this series, but you’ll also find what you’ve come to expect from me—love, friendship, hope, and… (hopefully) laughter.
The first book in the series is I’m Pretty Sure You’re Gonna Miss Me Ronin McKinsey and focuses on Hazel, a plucky, sweet, good-hearted person who can’t stop going over the top for the people she loves most—a character trait that pushes her boyfriend right over the edge. In a bid to get him back after a bad break-up, Hazel teams up with resident nobody, Daniel Starnes in what becomes a comedic tale of friendship, love, and weirdness you’ll love.
If you’re looking for short, easy reads… this is the series for you!
Here are those commonly asked questions again:
1. What is the target age group?
Young adult to younger new adult. The books are clean, free of cussing, and tackle real-life struggles in a positive way.
2. What are the ages of the characters?
High school to college-age, so roughly 16-22. In the epilogues, the characters are mid-twenties.
3. What is the content rating?
Even cleaner than the Secret Author Series, an easy PG.
4. Why did you start this series?
I really wanted a series that would make people laugh through their struggles. I also wanted to put my own personality out front and center, so when you read about those clumsy characters doing ridiculous things—yeah, that’s me.
5. Should I read the series in order?
Yes. Each book has its own arc that fully resolves at the end of the story, but you will see common characters pop up as you go. The series will also incorporate a second generation as it goes on, so it’s important you know who everyone is from the start!
So far, only one book has been published, but book two is in alpha review right now! I expect to release it within the next two to three months!
Here are all the details:
I’m Pretty Sure You’re Gonna Miss Me Ronin McKinsey (available now at Amazon and in Kindle Unlimited):
Ronin McKinsey broke up with Hazel Simmons in the worst way—publicly and with a lot of fanfare—and now she’s on a mission to make sure he realizes what he lost.
Determined to make her ex jealous, Hazel enlists the help of Daniel, a quirky loner who agrees to kiss her right in front of Ronin. Little does Hazel know, Daniel has plans of his own and offers to help her stick it to her ex if she helps him find a date to prom. Hazel quickly learns there’s more to Daniel than meets the eye, and Daniel seems to be just what she needs to get even—or get over—Ronin McKinsey.
With hijinks, hilarious misunderstandings, and drama around every corner, Hazel and Daniel find more than a mutual understanding between them. They find friendship—the kind that lasts forever.
A young adult novel perfect for fans of fake boyfriends, quirky characters, swoonworthy sweetness, and clean romance.
Here’s what’s coming! The series will include ten books in total, but I’m only planned up through eight!
