Guest Post and Giveaway: Ronni Davis Creates Sims of Her Characters from When the Stars Lead to You

As part of the blog tour for When the Stars Lead to You, I asked Ronni to create Sims of her characters! They look really incredible and I’m so excited to share them with you! You can also read my review of her absolutely incredible book here!


Oh my gosh YES! Any reason I have to play the Sims is a GOOD reason!! I ran out of time to build any houses, but I did make Sims! I have two versions of Ashton and Devon. The first is the Maxis version, with no custom content.

Shattering Stigmas: Author Interview with Ronni Davis

Welcome to the seventh day of Shattering Stigmas! From now until October 22 I’ll be highlighting voices from the book community on mental health. I’m co-hosting this event with Taylor from Stay on the Page, Shannon from It Starts at Midnight, and Amber from YA Indulgences so make sure to check their blogs out each day to see different content.


Ronni, thank you so much for coming to talk about mental health. What does shattering stigmas mean to you?

To me, shattering stigmas means making things previously thought to be “taboo” more mainstream, so that we can have real conversations that are able to drive real change. In the case of mental illness, so many people still feel ashamed to admit they have it, and in turn, never get or use the treatment they need. I struggle with this myself. I’ll skip my medicine for no good reason, then wonder why I feel so terrible. And I think it’s because of a deep-seated shame that I even need it.

If the stigma gets shattered, well, I hope that means fewer people will feel shame because of their illness, and I hope it means more people will be able to get treatment. But we need to keep the dialogue open, and I’m so glad to see a lot of it happening. There are so many great Instagram accounts devoted to shattering this sigma, which is wonderful. I just hope this momentum keeps going.
