Those of you who have read Rosemary Beach as I released each book know that the original reading order was Fallen, Never, Twisted, Forever, then Simple. However, since Rush Too Far’s release I needed to change it for new readers. Rush Too Far will be enjoyed more if new readers read it with the other Too Far books. Then they can start the Perfection books.
I will be announcing the title for the last Sea Breeze book on June 30. I will also have a little surprise involved with that book.
Rosemary Beach will have two books for Mase releasing in 2015. After that the future of Rosemary Beach is still undecided. I love the characters and I hope to continue the series through several more books.
FOR NEW READERS: the Sea Breeze books do not have to be read in order. They are each stand alone books for different couples with the exception of While It Lasts and Sometimes It Lasts. Those two books need to be read in that order. Following along in order is fun if you want to meet the characters of each book before their story is told but it isn’t necessary.
I recently joined Liz Fichera's YA Revolution Crew and wanted to spread the word. I believe it's important to promote novels that include characters that aren't the norm. Check out what Fichera has to say and if you agree, join The Crew. Read Hooked, which is a perfect example of the awareness she is trying to spread.
Become part of the revolution! Join The Crew!
Publishing a novel and spreading the word is a daunting task for any author. It becomes even more difficult when you're an author like me who likes to write (and read!) stories with diverse characters. Unfortunately, in young adult literature today, the percentage of diverse characters--at least as main characters and not just as trusty sidekicks--is very small across all underrepresented groups.
I'm doing my part to change that with the help of a lot of people who feel the same way.
I'm always on the lookout worldwide for readers, bloggers, librarians, teachers, mothers, fathers, teens and even tweens with the passion and hunger for diverse stories and who'll join me in spreading the word on their social media sites, book clubs, classrooms, even at their kitchen tables when they talk with their families and friends about books that matter and pack an emotional punch.
Each month, I feature middle-grade and young adult books with characters from underrepresented groups on my blog in a post called The YA Revolution Spotlight. Many of these books you've probably never heard of and that's a shame. Many of the books featured in the monthly spotlight come recommended by readers who are part of The Crew. Indies and traditionally published authors and books welcome!
Do you have a hunger to read and discuss books in children's literature with diverse characters? Interested in joining me on this quest? Please email me for details and get involved!
This may or might not be for you. Corrupt is a new dark erotica novel by Penelope Douglas. Her other novels have been New Adult so I'm curious to see how different this is knowing that her New Adult already contains steamy scenes. I can only imagine what she'll come up with...
I was told that dreams were our heart’s desires. My nightmares, however, became my obsession.
His name is Michael Crist.
My boyfriend’s older brother is like that scary movie that you peek through your hand to watch. He is handsome, strong, and completely terrifying. The star of his college’s basketball team and now gone pro, he’s more concerned with the dirt on his shoe than me.
But I noticed him.
I saw him. I heard him. The things that he did, and the deeds that he hid…For years, I bit my nails, unable to look away.
Now, I’ve graduated high school and moved on to college, but I haven’t stopped watching Michael. He’s bad, and the dirt I’ve seen isn’t content to stay in my head anymore.
Because he’s finally noticed me.
Her name is Erika Fane, but everyone calls her Rika.
My brother’s girlfriend grew up hanging around my house and is always at our dinner table. She looks down when I enter a room and stills when I am close. I can always feel the fear rolling off of her, and while I haven’t had her body, I know that I have her mind. That’s all I really want anyway.
Until my brother leaves for the military, and I find Rika alone at college.
In my city.
The opportunity is too good to be true as well as the timing. Because you see, three years ago she put a few of my high school friends in prison, and now they’re out.
We’ve waited. We’ve been patient. And now every last one of her nightmares will come true.
***Corrupt is stand-alone dark erotica set to be released Spring 2015.
I devour books in days and dabble at being a writer.
