Secrets Are For Flowers (Beds Are For Flowers book 2) is now live and available for pre-order When I started Beds Are For Flowers I had no idea it was going to be a series. I wanted to write a pure adventure story. Three children follow a road and when they reach the end they face their main conflict. I thought that was the beginning and end of it. I wrote a cute middle-grade fantasy that would go in my portfolio and maybe sell a few copies. I had no idea it would climb the hot new release charts and sell over 150 copies in the first two days. For the first time in my life I felt like a real author–I felt like this is something I could actually make a living from. The funny thing is, any book you write hs the opportunity to be a series. If you can complete a book then the working universe is already there for you to expand upon. The story of Clarence, Wakoba, and Jessi was only getting started and I knew I had to tell it.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I can’t remember the last time I read such a must read. Not just a book I loved or a book I recommend but a must read. A book that takes you so far into someone else’s mind it could reach even the most selfish individuals empathy.
This is brave writing. This is the kind of reflection piece that leaves me breathless.
I love this, and after reading it I can’t see how anyone can read Roxane Gay’s writing without falling in love with her.
