The past week I’ve shared my excitement of celebrating To be a Hero’s book birthday.  Here’s a wrap up of all the posts and a final reminder that today is the last chance to get the special book birthday deal!

Get TO BE A HERO now


Valerie has loved stories about heroes ever since she was a child. Now it’s her chance to become one herself.

When a masked, self-proclaimed hero called Shadow appears in her hometown, she decides to team up with him and become a hero herself. Valerie is an unlikely adventurer. She can’t run fast and she is a little insecure. But she is passionate about turning her life into an interesting story.

However, soon she has to learn that living a story is not as easy as she had thoughtIn a small town with no big adventures, the person underneath Shadow’s mask is the only mystery worth exploring. When Shadow’s secrets pile up, she has to learn to face problems without her mask.

In a world that believes it no longer needs heroes, can Valerie and Shadow prove it wrong?

Read about what inspired To be a Hero and why I decided to call Valerie a heroine rather than a hero. I also wrote a blog post about what the journey of self-publishing To be a Hero means to me.

AP Bullard’s review for To be a Hero: “To Be a Hero is a fast-paced read that is inspirational, touching, and humorous all at once. While it appears to be a YA novel, this is one that will be enjoyed by readers of all ages…This novel was engaging and fun to read. It made me laugh, it made me tear up, and it made me feel a whole range of emotions that I generally reserve for real people.”
