Never underestimate the power of the little black dress...

Paris—the romance and fashion capital of the world. So what the hell makes Jamie Scotts, an IT geek from New York, think the city of lights holds the answers? Driven by need for change, she lies to her boss about her fluency in French and becomes the company’s first international sales person. Fluent? She can barely ask for directions to the ladies’ room.
Jamie’s a duck out of water with her low maintenance style and New York accent. Her unsuccessful sales pitch almost sends her home, until she meets the epitome of elegance—Giselle Bianchi. An unlikely relationship blossoms as the dress designer takes Jamie under her wing. Giselle’s guidance not only reveals Jamie’s missing je ne sais quoi, but also unlocks repressed passion with the help of a little black dress.

I LOVE Indie Books Blog Hop

Thursday, July 25, 2013
We all love Blog Hops ( I mean who wouldn't they are full of amazing prizes up for grabs) and we all Love Indie Authors. So Readers Realm & Indie Inked have decided to join forces and host an I Indie Books Blog Hop. So One My Stop on this hop I have the Lovely Susan Griscom talking to us about writing in the YA Genre and I will be giving away 5 eBooks of her YA Title Allusive Aftershock along with 5 eBooks of MaryLynn Bast YA Title Realm of Secrets part of her Heart of a Wolf Series. So Make Sure To Enter The Rafflecopter and when finished make sure you hop along to all the other stops and enter for more amazing prizes. 
Now The Lovely Susan will be taking over for a little while.

It’s not much different writing in the Young Adult genre compared to the adult. For Allusive Aftershock, the main challenge was taking myself back to my high school days and taping into my memories of the way things were and the way my friends and I dealt with things. Of course, so much has changed since then, like technology for the instance, but the emotions are the same with girls crushing on boys and boys crushing on girls. Technology really wasn’t an issue in this story, mostly because the earthquake destroys so much. But it’s comforting to know that young love never changes.
I was in love as a teenager and it was a strong, strong feeling for me. Being in love as a teenager, doesn’t mean it feels any less important. Love is love, no matter how old you are. We all change over the years, but there are so many people I know who fell in love in high school and years and years later are still together—although I wasn’t one of the lucky ones to have found my soul mate in high school, the fact there are many, says so much about the power of young love.
When I wrote Allusive Aftershock, I channeled my brain back into the time when I did have a steady boyfriend and I used the relationship we had. It was serious up until I went away to college and he didn’t. Things happen. But he was my boyfriend during that awful earthquake we went through in our senior year of high school. The one I used in the beginning of Allusive Aftershock actually happened almost the exact way I described it in the book, except I didn’t have a little sister and brother. But, the earthquake in the beginning is the only part of the book that was taken from experience. The rest, I hope never happens, except maybe the love part.
Although, Adela doesn’t have a boyfriend like I did, she does tend to stick like glue to Max, the wrong guy. I suppose, since I didn’t marry my high school boyfriend but spent most of my time with him it was similar in that way. Then later, when she starts to like Courtland, that was an easy relationship for me to imagine as well as write. Both boys in the book are hot so I had fun imagining I was Adela and having the difficult decision of figuring out whom she should actually trust, or like or even love.
Natural disasters happen all over the world, whether it’s an earthquake, hurricane, tornado or fire they can all be devastating. I chose an earthquake for this story, only because I’ve experienced them and could relate a little better. However, the ones that happen in Allusive Aftershock are fiction except for some similarities of the first one, which wasn’t all that bad and I would never want to be in one as horrible as the ones in Allusive Aftershock and the chances of any happening like those are very slim. My heart always goes out to everyone who has ever experienced anything life-threatening cause by mother nature. When I wrote Allusive Aftershock, for me, it was more about the relationships between Adela, Courtland and Max that drew the story, not the disaster. 
If you read Allusive Aftershock, I’d love to hear your thoughts and you can email me at susangriscom@hotmail.com or simply leave a review on Amazon.com.

Insatiable Reads Blog Hop

Thursday, July 18, 2013

I have a special treat for you all today as part of the Hot Summer Romance Giveaway Hop sponsored by The Insatiable Reads Book Tour I have author MaryLynn Bast here telling us about her Heart Of The Wolf Series and how it became a series we all LOVE. I will be giving away ebook copy of the whole series to 1 LUCKY COMMENTER.  So grab a drink sit back and get ready for the 

where she is 
 I have always loved writing. One day a friend told me that I should enter a fifteen hundred word contest for a werewolf story.  I started the story as a horror and asked my friend to read it. Being new to the world of letting other people see my writing I was devastated when she told me the story needed a lot of work.  It took the wind out of my sails and I set it aside and stopped writing.  Being a true writer, I couldn't help but continue working on something, so I went back to what I was used to…contemporary romance.  I wrote for a couple weeks but I wasn't satisfied with my work. I then realized my werewolf story was calling to me and I didn’t have to write it as a horror. I could write it as a paranormal romance. Excited, I spent hours upon hours working on my story to get it just right. Then I asked my friend to read it again. She told me I still needed to fix a lot with it. I decided it was time for me to get opinions from others and actually got an agent who was excited to work with me.

After dealing with the agent for a while I was just not too excited about continuing writing if this was some of the things I was going to have to deal with. We dissolved our contract.  After many rewrites and different editors I stumbled my way through self-publishing and put No Remorse out. I was done. I had no intention of publishing another book. I had one published, I had reached my goal.

Suddenly I was being contacted by people who had read the book wanting to know when the next story was coming out. They loved the characters and wanted more. I was shocked that people actually liked my story and this encouraged me. I started writing the novellas, expanding on the characters of No Remorse, telling their stories and the Heart of a Wolf Series was born.

After a couple of months of writing the novellas I ventured to have an erotic story published through Sizzler Editions, One Bite To Passion. This year on May 6, 2013 I self-published Steamy Fairy Tales, an adult take on Beauty and the Beast, Goldilox, and His Little Mermaid. Adults are allowed to have fun too.  

I am currently working on book two of the Heart of a Wolf Series, Softest Touch, and hope to have it out later this year. I also have another story I am working on which is the start of the Panther Pride Saga: Corporate Affair. 

One Lucky Commenter will win an Ebook Set of the 
Heart of a Wolf Series. 
There is also a Grand Prize Chosen By The Insatiable Reads Ladies that will consist of  #1 is a Kindle Fire. #2 is a $50 Amazon Gift Certificate. Please Leave Your Name and Email Address In The Comments for your Chance To WIN.
