Working hard or hardly working?

Hey everyone! Sara here. I've started a blog and am still getting used to it! Happy holidays, too. Christmas is just around the corner. I hope you're keeping warm and cozy - I'm wearing two sweaters right now it's so cold. :P

Right now I'm going through the final passes of my book, ARRANGED, and I'm really nervous. It feels like I started this book ages ago, when in reality it was just nine months. People have babies in that time! In a way, ARRANGED is my baby. It's been an absolute joy to raise and write this book and to see it published is going to make me cross off another thing on my bucket list.

Here's a bit about ARRANGED for anyone who's curious!

When straight-A 20-year-old Rose Jensen’s grandfather dies, he leaves her enough money to save her parents’ failing business and get her through UCLA.  The only catch – she has to marry Lee Montenegro, the infuriating half-Spanish, all-playboy transfer. Rose and Lee’s grandfathers were fast friends, and betrothed their grandchildren to each other. Lee wants the money to run from his suffocating family, and turns his full burning charisma on Rose, but she won’t give in. She’ll never marry someone she doesn't love, and who doesn't love her. But memories of a mysterious boy in her childhood haunt her, and Lee insists they know each other. With her parent’s pressures mounting, her scholarship slipping, and Lee’s advances heating up with more than just money-lust, Rose is torn between doing the right thing for her family, and doing the right thing for her heart. 

I'm so thrilled to be looking for a cover and doing all the things an author gets to do. I hope you all love the book as much as I do, and I'll be doing several pre-release teasers over the next month or so! 

Thanks for reading!
