book release

I discovered something wonderful!

One of the fun things about writing is that there are so many things you cut out before the final manuscript is submitted. It's fun to revisit those pages and reminisce. Especially when you discover something wonderful!

In Made of Steel's case...Miles' lost letters to Summer got cut because it was Summer's story and I wanted you to experience everything from her point of view. But when I unearthed Miles' letters a few weeks ago when I was feeling nostalgic, I knew I needed to give them to you. Because really it's not just Summer's story. There was a boy she left behind, not the other way around.

I hope you're as excited about these lost letters as I am. My telepathy says yes because you're probably like: "Ivy quit with the weird backstory and just get to the darn letters already." Right? I knew it. Fine you win!

Read the letters for FREE today exclusively in my Facebook group here.

I just typed The End!

I'm finally ready to share some information about my current project!  I just typed THE END this weekend on my new novel...Sweet Like a Psycho.

It's a romantic suspense/thriller that will have you guessing until the very last page.  If you loved the Made of Steel series or The Truth in My Lies then you're going to loooove Sweet Like a Psycho.  Oh I can't wait for you to read it!!

It's a standalone novel, although it does take place in the same neighborhood as The Truth in My Lies.  Does that mean Adeline and Ben are mentioned?  Yes it does :)  Does that mean you have to read The Truth in My Lies first?  Nope.  It's a standalone so you can enjoy this book entirely on it's own :)

It's releasing on July 2nd so mark your calendars!  I'll have pre-order links in a few weeks.  But in the meantime, scroll down for a partial cover reveal and to read the blurb!  Next week I'll be revealing the cover!!

Blurb: I’ve become what my neighbors say I am.  The crazy lady on the hill.  After all, I murdered three people in cold blood, right?  I’m a monster.
But that’s the thing about rumors…they aren’t the truth. 
When a detective shows up on my doorstep, for a moment I think the police have finally uncovered my secrets.  But he’s trying to link me to a case I had nothing to do with.  The longer he stays around though?  Secrets have a way of floating to the surface.
Everyone else thinks they already know me.  But they don’t.  Not yet.
