Dear Heart is live!

You've been waiting!  You guys, I'm really excited for you to read this story. Per usual, a part of my heart is in here. Part of my sadness, my struggle, my life......  my books are always personal. More so because I take things that have happened to me and write them out. It's just what I do. This is no exception. At all.

This book was HARD for me to write. So hard. I hope you FEEL that while you're reading it.

I hope you love it. I really, really, hope you love it. Thank you so much for reading.


Hypable talks Dear Heart I Hate You

OMG, DEAR HEART I HATE YOU comes out tomorrow!!!!


I'm pretty excited (and sick to my stomach).

Hypable gave me a little of their time and I was honored.  Even more honored when I read this;
"Sterling weaves a tale of unexpected love and long distance relationships that is both enjoyable to read and truthfully painful when examining the truth about love and ambition."

Read the full interview here:

A must read for aspiring writers

I get a lot of emails asking me about the process of writing. Asking me about self-publishing. Asking me if they should query their book. Asking me all sorts of things.

I gave this interview to Jake awhile back, but nothing in my thought  process has changed one bit. It's one of the most honest, wordy interviews i've ever done.  There's a lot about "failure" in there. There's a little about Drake.  There's more failure references.

Self-publishing was hard. The decision to self-publish was hard. You need to read this interview. Not because it's me giving it, but because of the things I said- the way I felt- if you're an aspiring writer, you might be going through this. You might have already gone through it.

So... you should read it.  And then hit publish.  :)

Thank you so much Jake for the interview. Congrats on your first book and here's to many more!  :)

Signed Paperbacks of DHIHY are Now Available!

I just got in a limited shipment of DHIHY paperbacks.  I've put them up for order over on my store (click the STORE tab up there ^^^^^^).

These books are so gorgeous in real life. I'm absolutely in love. I can't wait for you all to read this book. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Dear Heart I Hate You - One Week Away!

We are officially ONE WEEK AWAY from the release of Dear Heart, I Hate You!

I am so unbelievably excited for you all to read this story.  Just thinking about it hurts my guts. Everything I write has pieces of my truth in it.... things I've lived through... heartbreak I've experienced.  This book is no different in that regard, although I do feel like it's different in general. The story itself is different; in the way it's told. This isn't your typical, drama for the sake of drama, love story. There's no over the top ridiculous plot lines.

It's very real.
It's very raw.
It's filled with real life.

I hope you guys enjoy it. I hope you can relate to it.

So yeah.... 7 days away!  It's up for pre-order everywhere except Amazon.  Amazon will go live the day of release. May 9th!
