$3,669 – An appropriately naughty number to end on!

I’m wiping away a happy tear. In slow motion. What an awesome Kickstarter journey it’s been, and I’m thrilled that in ended in success. Not just regular run-of-the-mill success, but beyond-stretch-goal-head-banging success! Huge thanks and awkward lingering hugs to all the amazing backers who supported my dream. The Paths to Passion series will officially be a reality!!

Love that the final amount raised is $3,669. You crazy pledgers! And even though we were just shy of 69 backers,

Beginning a sexy little jouney

When I came up with this idea a year ago, I never thought I’d actually write a book. I still remember walking through the Wynn in Las Vegas with my friend Katie, telling her about my idea of writing a “choose-your-own-erotica” – how I wanted to combine the format of our beloved childhood books with an adult theme.
