New Release! Perfectly Ernest by E.J. Wesley

I'm happy-dancing today because one of my favorite writer friends, E.J. Wesley, released his first full-length novel. Way to go, E.J.!!! :D

From the very first Moonsongs serial, I fell in love with E.J.'s writing, and I've been reading everything he writes ever since. His clever descriptions make you feel like you're there. His characters are interesting, flawed, and loveable. And his sense of humor is a perfect balance for the darker and heartrending parts of his stories.  

If you've never read anything of E.J.'s, you're missing out. :)


From a distance, Ernie’s life seems perfect—he’s a star college baseball player adored by the student body and coveted by professional teams. Up close, he is a disaster. Since the death of his mother, he’s been trapped by a promise he made and forced to live her dream instead of his own. He reaches his breaking point in the biggest game of his young career and sets off a chain of events that will either define or destroy the rest of his life.

Ernie grudgingly joins a quirky campus counseling group that empowers him to heal himself and right his wrongs. By testing old friendships, forging unlikely new ones, and exploring an exciting romance, he begins to unravel the jumbled knot his tangled inner-psyche has become. But old rivals, mental illness, and the risk of a forbidden relationship soon threaten his progress. Will Ernie's new direction and friends be his salvation, or confirmation that he is forever doomed by his imperfections?


Perfectly Ernest is a New Adult contemporary novel with romantic elements by author E.J. Wesley. Ernest offers a smart, funny, sweet, sexy, uplifting, and oftentimes poignant perspective of one person's difficult transition into adulthood. It is a story about overcoming the demons of mental illness and struggling with the profound burden of expectations—both real and imagined. But it’s mostly a tale of friendship, hope, and love.
