Loving Josie by AD Ellis Release Day


Loving Josie, A Torey Hope Novel by A.D. Ellis

This is a stand-alone novel and does not need to be read in order.
Josie Decker has spent her whole life as an unloved and unwanted bother. Like a wild horse captured and bridled, Josie’s spirit is broken. She devises a plan to start her life anew; silently biding her time, she waits for the perfect moment. When that moment arises, Josie takes the opportunity and runs freely into an uncertain future in Torey Hope.
Kyle Martin is a tattooed, pierced, bad boy with a heart of gold. Marching to the beat of his own drummer, Kyle meets his perfect match early on in life. Devastating circumstances beyond his control plunge Kyle into dark despair and suffocating blackness. In an effort to escape the blackness, Kyle accepts an offer from an old friend and moves to Torey Hope.
Josie and Kyle hit it off as close friends and kindred spirits right away. Both are harboring secrets and sadness, but the connection between them is bringing light back to their smiles, their hearts, their lives. Kyle and Josie cling to each other as they battle guilt and crushed spirits. Through it all, with a lot of help from an unexpected accomplice, Kyle and Josie come to view each other in a new light.
When the past catches up to them and causes their lives to come crashing down, will Kyle and Josie get the chance to see where their future is headed? Or will they be forced to admit they waited too long to embrace what was right in front of them the whole time?
A heart-wrenching and heart-warming love story of cherishing the past while embracing the future.
For ages 18+ due to adult language and situations.

This book will be available on Kobo, iBooks, Nook SOON (if it's not already!)

A Real LIfe Blog Post from Me to You...

It's been a while since I've done one of these, but I thought it was time. So...

Happy New Year!! I'm usually not one to set resolutions. Let's face it most of us can't follow through on them and I know I'm one of them. I always get reflective toward the end of the year and this year was no different. I set goal for myself short-term and long-term. I do better with those than resolutions.

I'm pretty excited for 2015. I have a lot of things planned as far as my writing world goes. Hopefully that benefits my awesome readers.

It's been a little over a year since I self-published my first book. I re-released my first novel Tears in the Rubble in December of last year. It was previously released by Rebel Ink Press and I can't thank them enough for giving me a chance. Self-publishing has been a whirlwind though. I've learned so much and I'm still learning.

Cincy Author Event 2014

I went to my first author event in 2014 in Cincinnati. It was a blast! I also hosted an event in November of 2014 with Kate Roth. I still can't express how amazed I was by how smoothly it went. Everyone that attended (authors, bloggers, and readers) was amazing!
