Sara’s life is forever changed –
Waking up, buried & hidden deeply in the last place anyone would want to be, will do that. She is determined to find out how she ended up there & why, but when the only person who can help her, continuously lies to her, she finds herself forced to suffer alone. She can’t ignore the strange things that begin to happen to her nor can she hide from the nightmares that haunt her sleep. And when her world collides with Adan – the mysterious boy whom she can’t seem to stay away from, literally – she is consumed by the flutter that sparks whenever he is around and she is desperate to discover the reason why.
But the biggest discovery will come from the secret of what she is…
Adan’s mission to find Sara has finally begun –
It seemed simple: bring her back to the enchanted world that lives, breathes and survives because of her, but he quickly finds himself faced with an entirely new challenge. Immediately, Adan realizes that staying unknown to Sara is a task he will fail before he even begins; the pull to her is far too strong to refuse, and being with her will defy the very reason he existed. He was the key to her survival and loving her was not part of the path that he had been born to follow. Can he find it in himself too resist the urge to be with her and follow through with their destiny or will he destroy everything that had been left to Sara to protect and defend –
And the kingdom she is unaware she rules…
As Sara and Adan struggle to overcome their own separate battles –
There is a far more determined evil that is stalking the shadows and waiting to annihilate them both.
Sara will figure out that not everything is what it seems and knowing what she can and can not trust will be the key to finding out the truth of what happened to her, the reason why she was buried alive and who she really is…
Sara and Adan will discover why she was the reason he existed and why he would be the reason she survived & together they will fight to change the rules and rewrite their fate.
Discover the Meaning,
Discover the Secret,
“I’m a big girl Adan. I knew what I was doing.” I looked at him through my eyelashes.
“And what were you doing?” he asked.
“Playing with fire.”
“Me, being the fire?”
“You, being my fire.” I looked up at him coyly, waiting for his reaction.
I heard the low growl rumble through his chest, and his eyes blazed a stormy blue.
“You have no idea, how much I like the sound of that.”
What is your book about?
It’s about a girl, Sara, falling in love, discovering there is a lot more to her then what meets the eyes, and the challenges she will face trying to figure out who she truly is.
Has any other author(s) inspired your writing?
Sandra Brown is my FAVORITE Romance author, and the first book I attempted to write was a Romance novel haha. I went with YA after reading Amanda Hocking’s Trylle Trilogy. I love the adult of being young and falling in love over and over again. Which is what I did with Sara & Adan *sigh*
What do you think your writing style is?
I hope creative! Haha, but honestly if I only get one person who likes the book, I will be happy! Sorry if I didn’t answer this right haha.
Do you have any suggestions for beginning writers?
My favorite question and I will have the same answer every time! Always believe in yourself! Don’t be your own worst enemy! It’s very easy to psych yourself out. So step back, read a book, eat some ice cream, watch a movie – do anything to relax your mind & then try again. Don’t give yourself limitations, writers know no such thing.
When did you decide you wanted to be a writer?
In high school. After reading one of my mom’s romance novels, I was hooked! Reading, writing, all of it! I couldn’t get enough; it was an addiction, my passion. I will ever be a writer, even if I never publish another book after Flutter. I hope I do though haha!
Why should readers consider your novel?
Because it tastes like chocolate and smells like strawberries?? Just kidding, but that would be awe-SOME! I want readers to consider it because I’ve tried to make Sara; she is the main female character, different. I’m really excited for people to figure how who and what she is!
Were any of your characters a reflection of you?
No, I don’t think so. If any, maybe Sara, but only because she is like my daughter and my daughter is like me. However Sara, is very stubborn and she has a mind of her own. She is very much her own person, even if she herself, is still learning who she is.
What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
Hmm that I taste like chocolate and smell like strawberries! Just kidding! Don’t eat me!! Actually I think people would be surprised to know I use to be a wedding planner. Yep, for 2 years! & I loved it! I like too think I’m creative in more ways than one. I love details, I love to be organized & I love weddings!
What is your favorite part of the book?
Eeep! How do I even pick?! I guess I will have to say the scene at the Falls! & that’s all I will say! You will have to find out why *insert evil laugh here*
How did you start your writing career?
The first story I ever finished was a children’s story called Arnold. Arnold was an ant who believed he could be whatever he wanted in life, it was complete with illustrations by moi! I actually won a contest for that story and got a Savage Garden CD haha.
LOVED all the questions!! Thank you so much for having me on your blog, you’re such a sweetheart!! I can’t wait to finish TOUCHING SMOKE!! Xoxo -Mel
I find it hard to sum up my life in a paragraph, but I’ll try.
Reading has always been a passion for me, and writing as instinctive as breathing. Every inhale is an idea; every exhale a creation. Flutter will be my debut release, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! The only thing I do better than writing you ask? Making beautiful girls. My daughter’s will always be my greatest accomplishment.
I was born in Denver, Colorado –but I will always think of sunny Arizona as my home. I don’t have a big family, but I’m close with my sister, brother & my mom. My mom is my hero, my inspiration, and I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing person to be raised by.
4 things you should know about me: I’m very girly, but I can get down and dirty with the best of them. I adore the color pink, I love things that sparkle (including vampires) and I like even numbers (hence 4 things about me, not 5)
Thank you so much, Melissa, for taking the time to stop by and talk to us about your fantastic new release! Best of luck to you in the future!
