Man! This week is full of awesome! As some of you may or may not be aware, late 2015 I decided to launch a small publishing house. This is something I've thought and planned about for years but never felt the timing was right.
Until last year.
Likely you've heard of Blaze Publishing, but in case you haven't, that is my brainchild. I love it. I love authors. I love having my own brand and working with some exceptionally creative people. I get giddy over their covers as if they're MY BOOKS. I laugh/cry when authors write and tell me that my edits were spot on and they're EXCITED to make changes!
I just freaking LOVE IT.
And my team who helps me bring it all together? They mean the WORLD to me.
So, gushing aside, today we're revealing the cover for our second release at Blaze Publishing. Because I Love You is a story with heart, a story with overwhelming things happening to very young people. It's a story about trials so many young people deal with today, and it's why I said YES after reading it! Not once does Tori (the author) condemn anyone for any choice they might make if they were in this main character's shoes. It's great insight into options available for young people, and how life really can go on after making one of these forever-decisions.
And it's a decision close to home for me.
Am I being vague enough?

I hope you all love this book as much as I do!
Sometimes, love is sacrifice.
Eight weeks after sixteen-year-old Andie Hamilton gives her virginity to her best friend, “the stick” says she’s pregnant.
Her friends treat her like she’s carrying the plague, her classmates torture and ridicule her, and the boy she thought loved her doesn’t even care. Afraid to experience the next seven months alone, she turns to her ex-boyfriend, Neil Donaghue, a dark-haired, blue-eyed player. With him, she finds comfort and the support she desperately needs to make the hardest decision of her life: whether or not to keep the baby.
Then a tragic accident leads Andie to discover Neil’s keeping a secret that could dramatically alter their lives, and she's forced to make a choice. But after hearing her son’s heartbeat for the first time, she doesn’t know how she’ll ever be able to let go.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Adopted at three-days-old by a construction worker and a stay at home mom, Tori Rigby grew up with her nose in a book and her fingers on piano keys, always awaiting the day she’d take her own adventure. Now, she goes on multiple journeys through her contemporary and historical romances. She longs to live in the Scottish Highlands, and her favorite place in history is Medieval England—she’d even give up her Internet and running water to go back in time! Tori also writes high-concept genre fiction as Vicki Leigh, and when she isn’t writing, she’s kicking butt in krav maga or attending classes to learn how to catch bad guys.
