You know what they say about the best laid plans, but that didn't stop me from making a bunch at the end of December to make 2018 rock from start to finish. And I was doing well: I was working out 3x a week, took care of my dog and apartment like a boss while my mom had to be away for a week, made a rewriting list for Unmoored, printed out the manuscript, and was ready to go.
And then it all went down the drain because I got sick. I'm not even sure what it is (yes, present tense—I'm still sick as I'm writing this). It may be the flu, or a really bad virus. But I've had it for about a week now and I'm sick of being sick. And the 1 killer migraine I had didn't exactly help, either. But at least that was knocked out in 1 day of sleeping (which I was already doing a lot of).
But this isn't all to say that I've accomplished nothing. If you notice the new subscription box at the bottom of my blog posts, you can see that I am now offering my first book for free to newsletter subscribers. On the back-end, I actually completely switched from Mailchimp to Mailerlite and rewrote my welcome system. Feel free to sign up below!
Looking forward, I'm planning on tackling the Unmoored rewrites, revision, and edits. Stay tuned!
About the Book
Title: Twisted Fate
Series: Twisted, 1
Author: Jessi Elliott
Genre: NA Urban Fantasy
Publication Date: February 13, 2018
Cover Artist: Okay Creations
Being kidnapped by the Leader of the Fae really puts a dent in your senior year.
Aurora Marshall is sharp, witty, and always has a plan. Ready to finish her business degree and graduate, her life is going smoothly—until the night she meets Tristan Westbrook.
Tristan, the overbearing, gorgeous fae leader, and an admired businessman in the human world, is all kinds of dangerous. While he finds Aurora intriguing, her refusal to bend to his will keeps them locked in a constant power struggle.
Entering into a deal is the only way to escape Tristan’s clutches, which only plunges Aurora deeper into the fae world. With her future at stake, she is forced to handle his arrogance and extraordinary fae abilities as she fights to stay grounded in her mundane life.
Not to mention her struggle to ignore the growing attraction she knows she shouldn’t feel for the man who kidnapped her.
When people said college would be the most exciting time of her life, Aurora never thought this is what they meant.
It's been a while since I've blogged, what with finals, holidays, finishing the first draft of Unmoored (finally) and readjusting to life back home now that I'm taking next semester off.
Anyway, I'll keep it short and simple. One of my goals this year are to blog weekly (partly to actually use this blog for what blogs are meant for, and partially to keep my accountable with my writing, revising, editing, and publishing). That last part is particularly important because I also have a goal to publish at least the rest of The Belgrave Legacy's sequels: Unmoored and Taming the Alpha. You can already read it and the short stories.
So, that's me. My question for you all is what are some of your new year's resolutions? Comment them down below. And if you have any tips on sticking to those goals, don't hesitate to add that, too.
About the Book
Title: Torrid Little Affair
Series: Forbidden Desires, 3
Author: Kendall Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: Dec 11, 2017
The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And I have the perfect candidate all picked out.
My new assistant is tempting beyond belief with her curvy body and take-no-shit attitude. All those luscious curves, and a juicy ass I’m already in love with. God, the things that I would do to that ass…
But it’s the haunted look in her eyes that speaks to me. Like she’s taken just as much shit in her past as I have—maybe more. We both deserve a little fun.
Love can’t fix everything. Mind-blowing sex and a few killer orgasms, on the other hand?
I have a feeling those might do the trick.
This is book three in the Forbidden Desires series, and while it can be read as a standalone, it’s recommended you start with Dirty Little Secret.
I know the book description says that one should go read the first book in the series before cracking this one (it "spoils" the end of Book 1 in the first chapter, but given they're all romances, it's not that big of a spoiler), but given I'm in the middle of studying for finals and writing my final papers, I unfortunately didn't have time to do that (although I intend to once I'm done with the semester). In the meantime, let's get into my review.
The novel takes place in Boston, so woo! Okay, seriously now, my review:
I'm a self-published author (because being a college student wasn't hard enough!) and spend most of my time doing homework. I write YA multi-genre fiction for young adults or the young at heart. I love NCIS, BBC's Sherlock,
