YOU’RE GOING TO SURVIVE:
True stories from people who’ve endured soul-crushing moments in their careers —

Pre-order the book now on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, and IndieBound.


We all have days when we feel… completely discouraged.

Maybe it’s a hysterical client who’s demanding a refund. Or a book proposal that gets rejected… 48 times. Or a job interview that goes nowhere, yet again. Or just a general sense of “Who am I? What am I doing with my life???” that pervades your day and makes everything feel heavy and stressful.

When that moment arrives, curl up with You’re Going to Survive.

Each chapter is filled with honesty, humor, and heartfelt encouragement to help you stay motivated, keep marching, and never give up.
 


 

50 WAYS TO SAY YOU’RE AWESOME

 

50 Ways to Say You’re Awesome is an illustrated book about the power of gratitude. (Because we all need to say “thank you” more often.)

It’s filled with blank notes that you can fill out and give to friends, colleagues, and strangers to say, “Hey, I think you’re awesome.” It’s an adorable book for kids — and grown-ups, too.

Also… this book has the world’s cutest theme song and trailer!

 


 

OUR Q&A A DAY: A 3-YEAR JOURNAL FOR 2 PEOPLE

 

Q&A a Day is a daily journal for couples to complete together.

It has a new question for every day of the year — and space for both of your answers.

(I got hired to write the questions by Potter Style, a division of Random House / Crown. Peek inside the front cover and you’ll see my name! Exciting.)

This book is a great gift for you and your sweetheart — or another couple you know.

It’s been a #1 bestseller on Amazon for several years running. Because love rules.

 


 

SO THIS IS THE END: A NOVEL

 

So This Is The End is a 24-hour / 24-chapter love story.

The story was inspired by the question, “If you knew that you only had 24 hours to live, what would you do with that time?”

And also: “What if you met the love of your life… on the last day of your life?”

It’s been called: “An intense whirlwind of all the feelings,” “touching, funny and sexy,” and the kind of book that you need to “devour in one sitting” and that will get “tears streaming down your face.”

The entire plot fell into my brain one night… in a dream. I hope you like it. (PS. Don’t forget to read the “Epilogue” at the end if you want a happy ending.)

Digital (PDF). 115 pages. Read it on your tablet, phone, or computer.

 


 

MILK & HONEY: A LOVE STORY

 

Milk & Honey: A Love Story is a romance novel about a writer and a pastry chef. It’s got delicious food descriptions, shocking plot twists, and of course… lots of passionate sex!

It’s kind of like Fifty Shades of Grey, but with less bondage and more chocolate soufflés. One reader calls it, “The best erotica I’ve ever read.”

I hope you love reading it… as much as I loved writing it!

Digital (PDF). 288 pages. Read it on your tablet, phone, or computer.
