Congratulations to Dallas Woodburn for the release of her new novel, Thanks, Carissa, for Ruining My Life published by Immortal Works. This YA novel is the perfect friends-to-lovers romance that you won’t be able to put down. Join characters Carissa, Rose, and Brad as they navigate self-improvement, identity, and acceptance in our image-obsessed culture.
If you would like to listen to a deep dive into the book, check out Marissa Meyer’s The Happy Writer podcast where Dallas talks about the challenges of writing romance, creating powerful character arcs, and not giving up on the draft of a book you really love.
A perfect young adult romance, this slightly outlandish but totally delicious story is as contemporary as it is witty.Indies today
