Pocketful of Sand IS HERE!!!!

Y'all, I am so incredibly happy to be typing this post because that means the wait is over!  It's heeeeeeeere!  Cole and Eden are finally live!  Wahooooooooooo!

In addition to all the release information below, you'll find a short video from me that explains why this book is important to me, something that I've alluded to several times.  I didn't want to tape it earlier because it's a tiny bit spoilery, but now that the first few chapters have posted, you already know, so it no longer matters:)

And now, without further ado, POCKETFUL OF SAND.

“She’s beauty for my ashes. And I’m hope for her heartache.”—Cole Danzer

Pocketful-of-Sand250I don’t know what makes a great love story. Is it that instant attraction when boy meets girl? The passionate kisses and the fairy-tale ending? Or is it a lifetime of tragedy, paid in advance, for a few stolen moments of pure bliss? The pain and the suffering that, in the end, you can say are worth it for having found the missing piece of your soul?

The answer is: I don’t know. I don’t know what makes a great love story. I only know what makes my love story. I only know that finding Cole when I did, when Emmy and I were running from a nightmare, was the only thing that saved me. That saved us. He was more broken than I was, but somehow we took each other’s shattered pieces and made a whole. If that is what makes a great love story, if that is what makes an epic romance, then mine…ours is the greatest of them all.

Contains material that some may find disturbing. Not intended for readers under the age of 18.

This is the sandcastle I was telling you about. I met the man who built it. I saw his raw red hands.  It's as though, even then, Cole was trying to get my attention.  He did.  And I don't think he's left my heart since he dug in:)

mleightonNew York Times and USA Today bestselling author M. Leighton is a native of Ohio. She relocated to the warmer climates of the South, where she can be near the water all summer and miss the snow all winter. Possessed of an overactive imagination from early in her childhood, Michelle finally found an acceptable outlet for her fantastical visions: literary fiction. Having written over a dozen novels, these days Michelle enjoys letting her mind wander to more romantic settings with sexy Southern guys, much like the one she married and the ones you'll find in her latest books. When her thoughts aren't roaming in that direction, she'll be riding horses, swimming in ponds and experiencing life on a ranch, all without leaving the cozy comfort of her office.
