From the Author:

Writing Spilled Milk was very emotional for me, as you canimagine. I wrote what I needed to get down on paper as fast as Icould,and re-reading each chapter to edit and proofread was painful. As a self-published and first-time author, I know now that the first edition of Spilled Milk was not in its "best form"grammatically, but I alsocouldn't bear to have a professional editor or proofreader make changesto it. It was all still too raw and personal for me.

Severalcolleges and high schools have incorporated the novel into their lessonplans and I've received tons of feedback from my voracious fans- I knew I needed to come out with a more polished and professional edition thatwas appropriate for the education system, my fans, and in general. Thesecond edition of Spilled Milk (2015) has been proofread by twoamazing professionals in the industry and I am proud of the outcome. The story is exactly the same,so anyone with a first edition is not missing out on anything, but I had to accept the fact that "A writer I am, butan editor or proofreader I am not" applied to me in these circumstances. I hope that the second edition will allow people to continue to enjoy Spilled Milk in the way it was intended. Thank you all so much for your support in my journey as a writer and survivor.
