#Secretproject Cover and Title Reveal

Michele G. Miller and I have wanted to co-write for quite sometime. Last year we started brainstorming this idea, but we had so many other projects going on at the time we couldn't make it work. A couple months ago the story began to flow and we couldn't stop writing about Ruby and Brett! I can't wait to share their story with y'all. Writing with Chele has been the most fun I've ever had writing a book! It'll be difficult going back to writing alone. We just might have to keep writing together!

What this post is really about though... I absolutely LOVE our cover! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! Thank you Starla Huchton for bringing to life our idea for us!

Title: Paper Planes and Other Things We Lost

By: Mindy Hayes and Michele G. Miller

Genre: Clean Teen/YA Romance

Release date: June 6th (Tentative Date)



On June 18, 1993, Flight 397 crashed off the coast of Long Island. But this story isn’t about the crash. Not completely.

This is a story about two high school seniors living very different lives, who share one connection: they both lost parents on that fateful flight.

Slowly, letters bridge the gap between California and Pennsylvania as Ruby Kaminski and Brett Pratt find a way to remember the past while looking toward the future.

This is a story about hope, paper planes, and the other things they lost.





Michele writes novels with fairytale love for everyday life. Romance is always central to her plots where the genres range from Coming of Age Fantasy and Drama to New Adult Romantic Suspense.

Having grown up in both the cold, quiet town of Topsham, Maine and the steamy, southern hospitality of Mobile, Alabama, Michele is something of an enigma. She is an avid Yankees fan, loves New England, being outdoors and misses snow. However she thinks southern boys are hotter, Alabama football is the only REAL football out there and sweet tea is the best thing this side of heaven and her children's laughter! 

Her family, an amazing husband and three awesome kids, have planted their roots in the middle of Michele's two childhood homes in Charlotte, North Carolina.  




Mindy is the author of the YA Fantasy, The Faylinn Novels and Contemporary Romance, The Willowhaven Series. Currently, she's working on the Coming of Age Romance, The Day That Saved Us.

She is the youngest of six children and grew up in San Diego, California. After attending Brigham Young University-Idaho, Mindy discovered her passion for reading and writing. Mindy and her husband have been married for eight years and live in Summerville, South Carolina.
