Two are better than one. Thank you for your amazing support this year. I cannot believe winter is upon us. What a beautiful journey having you in my corner, cheering on Essie’s Roses as it reaches more readers. Thank you for everything you have done to spread the word about my debut novel. Feeling so blessed! As a new year approaches, I wish you everything that is beautiful, edifying, and good.

The holidays can be a hard time for many. Whether missing lost loved ones, feeling a little down as the year comes to an end, fear of the unknown, pressures from work, family, and the holiday rush . . .all of these things can take their toll.
