#Preorder Coming Undone by Melody Calder

Coming Undone

A tragic accident leaves ten-year-old Andre orphaned, and with no other relatives, there is no other option for him other than the orphanage.

Only a year younger, Simone had no clue why the new boy cried all the time and lashed out at the nuns. They were only trying to help him. All she knew was that he needed a friend and she was determined to be that person, no matter how many times Andre rejected her.

Once he accepted her friendship, the two quickly became inseparable until it was time for Andre to leave the orphanage behind on his eighteenth birthday.

With a bag of clothes, a small amount of money and the birthday cake Simone made him, he left with a promise that he would return for her.

When her time to leave came and went, he didn’t come back though. Heartbroken and lost, she decided to stay and work in the only home she had ever known, never forgetting Andre or giving up her hope of his return.

Inspired by the nuns that raised him, and following his calling from God, he is reassigned to a church to finish seminary only to find the very last person he expected to see again. The very one he had left behind so many years ago.

As they work together in service, he found himself doubting the life he chose for himself, doubting the vows he was soon to take.

His feelings for his best friend had only grown in his absence though and he wasn’t certain if he should take the chance and act on them, or if Simone even felt the same way.

Would Andre be able to remain faithful to the cloth, or will the temptation prove to be too great?

Fane is done living in Hell, and there is little time until her newest Maester has unrestricted ownership over her. When an Angel is captured and held in the Deep, she knows he might be her only chance at freedom—for only an Angel can break the demonic bond tethering her to Hell.
Mihr was ambushed by a bunch of Demons, who dragged him straight to the underworld. Now one of the Hellspawn—a sexy Demoness—offers him a way out. A forbidden way. He spent his life fighting her kind and avoiding temptation, but with freedom and life beckoning, he finally agrees to her conditions.
Together the unlikely pair flees, but the escape leaves Mihr close to death and in Fane’s care.
Soon both Heaven and Hell will come for them and they have to make a choice:
Die, or stay together.

Author Emmy Dee #MoonlitFalls #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Emmy Dee

Tell us a bit about yourself…

I’m just a small-town girl. Hailing from Arkansas, I spend most of my time wrangling my two toddlers and hanging out with my mom. I’m a firm believer in the use of finger guns and the phrase “cool beans.” I am definitely hip with all the cool kids. If you want to befriend me, I can be bribed with Dr. Pepper and gummy candies. I’ve always loved books and the side character Biff Hooper from the Hardy boys series was my first book boyfriend. I have plans to write in multiple genres, but the people in my head are crazy, so I’ll have to see where they take me

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I don’t think I have always wanted to be an author. I always hated writing essays in school, and my high school English teachers never really had a lot of faith in me. I have always loved reading though and I thought that people that wrote books were amazing. I was first struck with the inspiration to write in 2018. I went to my first ever book convention. Penned Con in St. Louis. I met several of my favorite authors and the author that got me into Indie books. I am normally very shy, but I felt so comfortable with all of the people I met and talked to. I instantly wanted to immerse myself in this community. On the way home after the convention, I told my husband that I wanted to write a book. It took me a couple of years to get going. I would have an idea, but wouldn’t write it down and then forget. Or I would write something down, and then stop because I didn’t want to make time to develop it. It wasn’t until late last year that things changed.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I saw the 13th jewel contest in Silver Springs and I almost decided to enter, but I didn’t have any confidence in myself. After it was over, and they announced the winner, I felt regret. Then the Moon Dust Library contest came up. I thought about skipping it too. I waited until right at the deadline and I told myself “If you do this and don’t get picked, then so what? Nothing in your life will change and you at least tried. But what if you do get chosen?”  I didn’t even read all the rules. (oops, sorry guys) I just jumped right in. I wrote almost four thousand words in almost four hours and submitted my info. When I got the message that my entry had been selected, I believe my exact words were “I think I’m going to throw up.” The MDL ladies have been my inspiration. They’ve helped me find myself. I am more confident in who I am now than I was when I started this journey, and I think they play a large part in that. 

What are you working on now?

Right now I am working on my short story for the Fearless Anthology. It’s an amazing anthology about strong women who struggled, fought, and survived. My story will be a prequel to my Moonlit Falls book. I also have Citrine’s second book mostly planned out and would like to release it around Christmas time. I have another anthology scheduled for next May ( it will definitely be paranormal but I haven’t decided if it’s gonna be RH or not.) and I have a couple of other projects that are in their very beginning phases. One is another paranormal reverse harem and the other is MF contemporary rom-com. Next year is looking pretty busy!

Do you have any quirks while working?

HAHAHA! Yes! A few. I have eaten a crap-ton of candy since January. If I’m writing, I’m probably snacking on some sort of gummy candy. My current favorite is sour lifesavers, but I’ll probably burn out on them soon if I keep eating them at this rate. I get distracted easily, and eating helps me focus. While I’m on the subject of distractions, I have to put my phone away and I can’t have any noise while I’m working. I also write the best at my desk staring at a blank wall. It’s all or nothing with this brain. Also, when I’m stuck on something or having problems with a character or scene, I take a shower. Shower thoughts with Emmy should be a podcast. I actually completely rewrote Citrine three times because of ideas I had in the shower. It looks nothing like my original entry, and the MDL ladies have banned me from taking showers more than once. (Don’t worry, I didn’t quit taking showers. I love them too much.) 

What are your hopes for the future?

I don’t know what the future holds, but I really hope this writing thing works out for me. I hope people love Citrine as much as I do and they feel like they can follow me on my new journey. I’ve discovered a new love, and I don’t really want to stop. I think I’ve found my calling.

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

I am not good at giving advice, but I will say this. Find your crew. Doing this is so much better with other people. I don’t think I would have been able to finish Citrine’s story so quickly if it wasn’t for my girls. They pushed me and helped me when I wanted to give up. I don’t know a lot about the publishing world yet, but I’m not as scared as I would be if I was doing this completely alone. 

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

If I have any… No, I’m kidding. Seriously, I love you guys. This community is the reason I even wanted to be an author. Don’t quit being you, because you are the best dang group of people in the world!

Author Elle Lee #MoonlitFalls #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Elle Lee

Tell us a bit about yourself… 

I’m 24 years old and currently live in Colorado. I have a Corgi-Mini Australian Shepherd mix named Peanut. In addition to being a new author, I’m also a medical student.

Some things about me are I like to write sweet and funny romances that always give my characters a happily ever after. I’m a huge soda addict and dessert queen. When I’m not writing, you can usually find me outdoors or spoiling my dog.

Have you always wanted to become an author? 

I have always loved reading books, and when I was younger, I dabbled in writing short stories. I was never confident that my writing was good enough, but it gave me an escape from reality as I pursued a career in medicine. Now that I have this opportunity to it’s surreal that I’m an author.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series? 

I love reading the books of Silver Springs Library, and when Mia sent an email about the opportunity to write in her spin-off series, it was something I couldn’t pass up. When I sat down to write Moonlit Jade, I wanted to draw experiences from my own life, so Jade has a little bit of me in her.

What are you working on now? 

I’m still finishing up Moonlit Jade to get her ready for release, but I’m also working on a contemporary short story for the Fearless Charity Anthology. 

Do you have any quirks while working? 

When I’m writing, I need to have a soda and candy next to me. I think the sugar helps my brain work, or I’m just running on a sugar high.

What are your hopes for the future? 

I hope everyone enjoys reading Moonlit Jade. I wanted to make Jade a character people could relate to and find connections with their own lives. I plan to continue writing and publishing my books. 

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world? 

There is a lot of work that goes into publishing your work, and the easiest part is writing. The hard part is the social media aspect. Make sure you’re interacting and respectful to your audience because they are the ones supporting your dreams. But other than that, if you want to start publishing your work, do it. Don’t let anyone stop you or convince you otherwise.

Do you have anything to say to your followers? 

Thank you so much for supporting my dreams and following me along this crazy journey. Love You, Mobsters!

Authors Mia Harlan and Eva Delaney #MoonlitFalls #interview

Please give a warm welcome to authors Eva Delaney and Mia Harlan creators of the Silver Springs universe.

Tell us a bit about yourselves… 

Eva: Mia is married to a vampire and has a mini-vampire, who is very cute. 

Mia: First of all, NOT a Vampire. But yes, our mini-MORTAL is very, very cute. 

Eva: Lies! If he’s not a vampire, why do we never see photos of him?

Mia: It’s perfectly normal for people to dislike having their pictures taken. Plus, you’re a vampire, and there are pictures of you, sooo…. 

Eva: You’re projecting! Just because my fridge is full of jars of red liquid doesn’t make me a vampire. That is juice, not blood! 

Mia: My Not a Vampire loves tomato juice, too. But he’s not the one who’s up at all hours of the night! 

Eva: How would you know if I’m up all night unless you are too? We wrote Nephrite until 2am every night.

Mia: That was fun! And a good way to keep you from hunting humans.

What was your inspiration for Nephrite? 

Mia: Eva and I came up with it on a park walk. It was freezing out and pitch dark, but that was the only way the two of us could get together during quarantine. 

Eva: It sucks that the sun sets at 4pm in the winter, which was why it was dark on our walks.

Mia: *cough* vampire *cough*

Eva: You still have all your blood, don’t you?!

Mia: Friends don’t bite friends? 

What are your plans for the Silver Springs universes? 

Eva: To keep launching new series as long as people keep reading them.

Mia: I really hope people keep reading them. They’re so much fun to write! 

Do you have any quirks while working? 

Mia: Well, as you know, Eva writes all night long because VAMPIRE.

Eva: As you know, Mia also writes all night because she’s married to a vampire. She needs to be awake at night or she’ll never see him.

Mia: NOT a vampire. One quirk we had while writing Moonlit Nephrite was we’d take ten minute breaks and disappear for an hour and a half. But then it’s much harder for Eva to hunt down dinner.

Eva: I assumed those long breaks were because Mia had to recover after her husband bit her.

Mia: That kind of biting has nothing to do with vampires. 

What are your hopes for the future? 

Eva: To write in cafes again.

Mia: Definitely that. I miss it so much. 

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world? 

Eva: Publish sooner rather than later. I’ve been writing for most of my life, but only started publishing a few years ago. I wish I had started earlier.

Mia: Make friends with other authors! If we hadn’t done that, Silver Springs and Moonlit Falls wouldn’t exist. 

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Eva: Thanks for your support! We only get to do this because of you.

Mia: Thanks everyone! And be sure to go to Eva’s Facebook group Eva Delaney’s Starship Crew and tell her to finally admit that she’s a vampire. 

Eva: While you’re on Facebook, visit Mia’s group Harlan’s Harem and help her end her delusions about her vampire husband.

Moonlit Falls #amreading

Welcome to Moonlit Falls

Please give a warm welcome to author Z Xanxar. She’s going to tell us how a bunch of debut authors came together to create Moonlit Falls.

Last summer, Silver Springs Library (organized by Mia Harlan and Eva Delaney) held a competition to become the 13th Jewel. Their first season in Silver Springs was Jewels Cafe, where FMCs with names of Jewels would be hit with a mate spell and find their fated mates.

To enter the competition, you had to be a newbie author, who had never published anything under any pen name. You had to make a story line, submit character descriptions and make a story sample. A reader panel made out of authors and readers went through all the samples and gave them scores. They ended up with roughly 25 participants.
Some had made a chat and was talking about doing this. What they were feeling, how they interpritated this or that. And the anxiety in actually doing this. It was an awesome community, yes, I was a part of it and I did submit my sample.

Silver Springs had a hard time deciding on who should win. They ended up picking 2 winners and not just one. The first book is actually releasing in their second season, Spell Library. Lotus, written by Nikki Jacks is releasing later this month.

A LOT! of the ladies from the chat was committed to keep writing and had several ideas flying all over the place. Some were moving rather fast – faster than was practical. I tried to get them to calm down a bit and together with Serafina Luna Brodie and Dolly Kalasin, we took up the torch. We asked if the rest of them would be ok with us taking lead and they were.
I then reached out to Mia Harlan to ask her if she would be willing to share a few pointers on how to lead a group of authors in such a shared universe.
The outcome of that simple question had me on an adrenaline high for hours that evening! Within 3 sentenses, Mia had throw up the idea to make a franchise of Jewels Cafe. Set in a completely new town with her and Eva writing the first book where their FMC would open up a new cafe with the help of Julian, Amber andothers from Eva’s and Mia’s Jewels Cafe books.

This was a start of Moon Dust Library and the town of Moonlit Falls. Dolly, Luna and I are the organizers behind the whole series. We put up, not a contest, but something similar to the 13th Jewel contest Silver Springs had made. Close to the same criterias.

1. Never published before
2. Story outline
3. Character descriptions
4. Your first chapter
5. A funny sample

We had 20 submissions. and needed 8 or 9 authors. December, going through all the samples and picking out the best ones, was rough. I’m not even going to go into detail on the final hours before we hade to message the ones we ended up picking – it was chaotic to say the least! But we have ended up wit an amazing bunch of ladies, who are writing cool RH rom-com books for this very first season.
Mia and Eva have been our support crew through all of this. Taking us through so many things and helping us above and beyond! They are truly amazing!

Mia and Eva are co-writing Moonlit Nephrite (their first co-write ever) and kicking off the series with that. Then we follow with 12 debut authors each doing their own book. To see how the ladies have come together. How they work together and how they make the most of everything, has been an awesome experience for all of us. I am looking so much forward to reading the rest of the books. Most are done or very close to it. There are a tonne of cameos between the books and most have even worked in characters they plan to use in future seasons.

Being one of the organizers, I can tell, it takes A LOT of time to make things like these shared universes come together. I had an idea it was much and even thought I was realistic about my expectations, but nope. It takes SO much more LOL
I am happy I am releasing last in the series, because it gives me a bit more time to keep things on track while the others finish up.

I am sure each of the ladies will have their own versions of how they ended up in Moon Dust Library, but in the big picture, the above is really the way Moon Dust Library was born. – I am SO happy I found my courage and asked Mia Harlan a few nervous questions 😀
