Title: The Possibility of Us
Author: Lisa Burstein
Publisher: Entangled Embrace
One weekend together could change everything…
When her friend called to tell her about the funeral, Cassie wanted to say no. She had enough to handle with her own hollow existence. But she knew she should pay her respects to her old camp counselor…as long as her ex, Ben, wouldn’t be there.
Except Ben is there. Still gorgeous, still angry, and still able to penetrate her defenses with one intense stare. All the reasons they left each other in a flurry of heartache start to fall away over one long, snowy weekend.
But tough Cassie can’t truly open up to Ben when she knows confessing her secrets will leave her raw, defenseless. And the possibility of forever might not be enough to gamble on all the impossibilities of now.

5 Things You Should Know About Writing
I don’t care what anyone says, it is HARDER than it looks.
If you don’t love it, don’t do it because eventually it does actually become work.
When you are drafting always leave yourself in an easy place to start writing again. I like to have a few lines of the next chapter written and ready before I start a session. That way you can’t ever say, “I don’t know what to write.”
Remember that dialogue should be your characters talking to each other, not talking to the reader.
When people say “find your voice: it’s kind of bullshit. You already have your voice, you’re merely honing it.
