Happy Thursday, all! 
A little while back I met Michelle during a query critique event. We chatted about out story premises, and as she explained her manuscript, I knew I had to help share the news about this book. Michelle wrote CHANGING FATE in honor of a young women she'd met struggling with cystic fibrosis. Absolutely beautiful. So I am very pleased to host Michelle's cover reveal today!   

Release Date: May, 8 2014

Book Description
All Kate wants is to live. Battling cystic fibrosis is hard enough, dying from it is even harder. When her mom moves them closer to the hospital in the middle of her senior year, Kate’s determined to isolate herself—saving everyone the trouble of befriending a dying girl. It’s a difficult task when cheerful optimist Giana insists on being Kate’s friend.
Kate’s resolve falters even more when curly-haired Kyler captivates her with his sweet melodies. As her emotional walls collapse, Kate realizes the people she’s been pushing away may be the ones giving her a reason to live. But it might be too late.
NOTE: Half of all proceeds will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
