#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?

Author Alexandra K. Martin #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Alexandra K. Martin

Tell us a bit about yourself… 

If I could use one word to describe me it would be quirky. I love to snuggle when it’s cold, surround myself with animals and have a family that I couldn’t live without. My sense of humour is either dark and dirty or lame Dad jokes, with nothing in between. 

I’m an Australian full-time author and I love it every single day. So far I have written fantasy, paranormal and contemporary RH but I plan on always pushing my limit and evolving my skills. With my husband and 3 kids by my side, I can trudge through anything and refuse to give up when life gets hard.

Unfortunately, I have a rare chronic disease that can push to lower my quality of life but I use it as the fire to remind me to enjoy every soft breeze on my face, the colours that fill the sky and the joy to get older. Never wasting an opportunity to help a person in need, and never bring anybody down or waste my time with idle gossip. 

I am a true believer that kindness does make all the difference.

Have you always wanted to become an author? 

Actually I went to university and studied 2 degrees in the hopes of becoming a federal officer or work in intelligence. The motivation to make the world a better place, driving me to success. However those plans never reached fruition as I got diagnosed with my illness and those jobs were then no longer a possibility for me.

So I spent my time doing what made me the happiest – writing. Never once did I consider that my fondest hobby could become my dream career. I hadn’t realised that it was even an option. Even though my home is filled with the tales of countless authors from throughout time, from Homer, Jane Austen, and Leo Tolstoy to the more modern authors Sherrilyn Kenyon (McQueen), Kelley Cole and Serena Akeroyd. 

One day it just snapped in my mind that being an author should have been my dream all along and that my deep desire to make the word better, can be fulfilled by bringing stories of love, laughter and fantasy to those who need it. So, here I am, doing what I love and regretting nothing.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series? 

I read A LOT, and it was getting to the point where I was getting frustrated because I couldn’t find any RH books of single mothers or women in their 30’s. Then I thought, I’ll just make it myself. 

The Rathe Chronicles began with that thought in mind and then grew from there. It’s my plan to have a place for all kinds of women to shine. I have created a world that will show all women; short and tall, big and small, strong and timid, dark and light, older and younger, with and without children, and with different sexual orientations from all walks of life. 

This series will be ongoing and continue to grow and unfold through every chapter told. Rathe is a whole new world of my creation and there is so much that I have to show you and share. It will cover RH, Ménage, M/F, F/F, and maybe even M/M. Each story is individual to the characters needs but they’re all spicy because everyone needs a little spice in their life.

A world for every woman is my inspiration.

What are you working on now? 

Currently I have my focus on Lust. Lust is an RH fairytale retelling from a sinner’s point of view, and it’s a part of a collaboration that I put together with 6 other amazing authors that I feel privileged to be working with. AJ Blackburn, Kira Roman, J. Kearston, Kat Blak, Kris Butler, and Jay Leigh Brown. Each one of us has our own fairytale and sin to tell.

Lust is book number 6 in the series and will be released on the 1st of August, but the book 1 ‘Gluttony’ comes out on May the 15th. 

The Golden Bird is the retelling that I’m focusing on, and I love that because it’s more uncommon than most and it’s exciting being able to create something unique from such a special story.

It’s a contemporary dark romance and could have quite a few triggers involved but it’s all relatable to the story and will have a HEA, I promise. All of the sinners books will.

It’s super fun to write and I can’t wait to share it with everyone. The series collaboration is going to be epic.

Do you have any quirks while working? 

I have to be either laying down or with my feet up. I have no idea why. Haha. I like to have my main playlist playing in the background while I write, with a bottle of water by my side.

I also write my daily words in one document before I add it to my manuscript, so that I can go over it again in case I’m not happy with it. It’s way more time consuming but I’m a big critic of my own work and like to make sure that I’m doing the best I can at that time.

I have a quirky hobby of collecting names and have a journal filled with them. I use it to randomly pick names for each character and mark them off so that I never double up in the future. It’s weird, I know. 

What are your hopes for the future? 

My Biggest hope at the moment is to learn how to write quicker and for my life to give me more time that I can dedicate to my career. Writing is everything to me and I look forward to always evolving and I never want to be settled in my writing because there’s always more to be taught.

I love what I do, I just wish there was more time to do it.

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

Listen to the advice of those around you and then decide what works for you because everyone is different and that’s okay. 

Be kind and supportive of other authors around you because we’re all in this together and being competitive is a waste of time and the only person you’ll disappoint is yourself. 

Find your support network! Without my little team of people I’ve found in the book community I would be lost, a good group of people to give you honest advice and remind you that you’re doing great is everything and make sure to give that support in return.

Find an amazing PA. My PA’s are my life savers, they are under appreciated and deserve more praise than they get. They work hard for you and keep life easier to maintain, I couldn’t recommend them more.

Do you have anything to say to your followers? 

You are everything! I appreciate every single one of you for taking the time to enter my world. My main goal in life is to bring you a temporary sanctuary to become a part of. A place for your mind to call home when you need a break and I hope that you’ve found it within my world of imagination.

Author L.E. Martin #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author L.E. Martin

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hi. I’m L.E. Martin but most people call me “Ellie” or “Marty”, those nicknames kinda stuck. I’ve been writing for over ten years now. I have four books out in my Laying it Bare series with another coming in April. I also have a Romantic Sci-Fi titled The Renters available. I work full time and write all weekend. I love to bake and wish I had more time to play the piano. I am a chocoholic and wished I lived somewhere warmer – I’m not a fan of cold and snow.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I have always been a reader but just in the last ten years or so I have become an avid reader and the more I read the more I wanted to create my own stories. Ideas would pop into my head and I began to roll with it.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

For my Laying it Bare series, it started out as a funny exchange of text messages between a friend of mine and me over getting a friend request from a really odd name with an anime picture for the profile. By the end of our texts, she told me I should write a story about that. I started writing and Laying it Bare with a Friend Request was born. And I now have 4 books out currently in that series (all stand-alones) with the next one coming out in April.

What are you working on now?

I have changed gears and am currently working on a paranormal romance about witches and demons. I don’t have many details yet as the book is still in its infancy. I also don’t know if it will be a solo book or turn into a duet or trio. I’m waiting to see where the characters take me.

Do you have any quirks while working?

Yes. I have to really force myself to stay put for long periods of time – even when the characters are excitedly talking to me. I swear I have adult ADD. It can’t be ADHD because I don’t have the energy to be hyperactive. But it not unusual for me to go bake something while I am writing. And then come back to it.

What are your hopes for the future?

I’m hoping to gain more readers and hope to get to meet them too at a future author signing. With COVID, the one I had been planning to attend was postponed. I would love to be able to interact more with my readers.

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

It’s a difficult and time consuming job but so worthwhile. Especially when you get those readers who really connect to your stories. Make sure you do your research and give your all for everything. Taking short cuts only ends up hurting you in the end.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you for being a part of my world. I hope you love my characters as much as I do and hang around for the fun yet to come.

Author Stella Brie #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Stella Brie

Tell us a bit about yourself

I live outside of Nashville, Tennessee with my husband and my 13 year old golden retriever, Bailey.  My husband got tired of me telling him I wanted to write a book ‘someday’ and challenged me to sit down and write a paragraph. Just one paragraph. Once I started, I couldn’t stop. First, I wrote a serial fan fiction, then jumped into my first book, My Salvation. I learned a ton writing that book! 

Have you always wanted to become an author? 

For a long time, no. I was a voracious reader and I worked in marketing. But for the last few years, I kept thinking “this is something I want to do…someday”.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series? 

Music often inspires a kernel of an idea. For my newest book, The Rowan, I heard the song Youngblood by 5 Seconds of Summer on the radio and all I could think about were vampires dancing on the dance floor, paying homage to a master vampire. That jump started my new series. 

What are you working on now? 

Book 2 in the Killian Blade Series, an urban fantasy reverse harem.

Do you have any quirks while working? 

I like to write one chapter at a time. When I sit down at my laptop, I will only write one chapter. I may come back later and write another chapter, but not in one sitting. It helps me focus.

What are your hopes for the future? 

To tell a lot more stories, cross genres and make a living. (Got to feed my dog!)

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

Just do it, publish. It doesn’t have to be perfect. You will learn a ton and that will set up your second book for more success. 

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you, my heart is so full of gratitude for everyone who reads my books.

Author Lux Carmine #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself


I am a self-published author who has been publishing since 2015. Lux Carmine is one of my many pen names and I write enjoy writing all types of romances. I live just outside of Richmond, Virginia with my two cats and my two daughters. We recently became obsessed with K-dramas and we watch them together on the weekends.

Have you always wanted to become an author?


No. In my “first life” I was actually a preschool teacher, then a middle school teacher. But I have been reading romance since I was 11 (I learned real quick that females should ALWAYS have orgasms) and I’ve been writing romances since I was 13. Going to age myself a little here but I was always in the AOL roleplaying chatrooms after school. I never did fight scenes, I was there for the romance. 🙂

What are you working on now?


I’m actually co-writing a book with a friend of mine, Riley Long. She writes M/M romance and I haven’t written one of those and I thought heck! Why not??

What was your inspiration for your current book?


I was flipping through Better Homes and Gardens or something like that this past summer and saw this article about these two men who were florists in upstate New York or something like that. I ripped the article out and gave it to my author friend, Riley, and I said “YOU MUST DO THIS!” And now I’m writing one in her series with her. It has a friends to lovers trope which I adore.

Do you have any quirks while working?


I must be facing a wall when I’m writing. If I can see anything at all it distracts me too much and pulls me out of my story. I wish I could be a coffee shop writer but that’s just not me.

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope that my books are discovered and loved by people who need them. My goal as an author is to entertain and to touch the hearts of my readers.

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


New authors — Keep writing! Keep trying! Don’t give up hope if your first book doesn’t make the NY Times Best Seller List. And don’t quit your day job maybe until you do. It’s a tough market and it’s getting tougher every day. Publishing is not a get rich quick scheme so make sure you have a different motivation to write other than money.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?


To my followers, I am so thankful for you. I know that if I’m having a really shitty day, a horrible incident or just read a bad review I can count on all of you to lift me back up. I hope my books are able to do the same for you. I love you all! ❤

Love Is Not Lost (Faith Series Book 1)

The first day I met the McGuire brothers, Lincoln hit me with a football.

Second day, Tyler, vowed to break down the walls I had around me.

A week later, Kayden made his move.

They knew what they wanted and were going after it.

Me.

But I had a secret. I just never knew how much of a secret it was until I met them.

♥♥♥

All sixteen-year-old Faith Daniels, or Daniels for short, wanted was a chance. A chance to forget her dark past and forge her own future. But that’s hard to do when your past is full of great darkness.

Death always comes at a hefty price, more so, when you’re unsure if you’ve carried out such a sentence.

Given the chance to break free from her hometown with an officer by her side, Daniels will find out that sometimes it’s not the past you have to be worried about; the future can be just as scary. Especially in a new town where three hot neighbor guys want your attention.

As Tyler, Kayden and Lincoln McGuire try to break down the walls Daniels has formed; things get a little out of hand.

Maybe it was the dumb mutt that kept harassing her or the crazy cop foster parent that seemed to keep her on her toes, either way; Daniels walls were cracking. Sometimes it takes more than just one guy to keep your walls down. To gain your trust. To help you love again.

Maybe for Daniels, three guys was her lucky number.

Kota: Meeting Sang #1 – The Academy Ghost Bird Series

The Academy: Ghost Bird series in a different look at the very beginning. Read Introductions with a whole new perspective–the boys’.

Kota Lee has been trying for weeks to get the girl up the street to notice him. She’s beautiful and intriguing, but seems incredibly shy. Too shy. Every time he tries to get close, she dodges him, like a skittish little bird, flittering away out of his reach.

Troubled by her haunted looks, he’s tried to give her some space, respect her need for solitude. Still, he can’t forget those eyes that are haunted and–he thinks–maybe hiding secrets.

One dark night as thunderclouds are rolling in, he’s driving home late and spots her standing in the road. It’s too late for her to be out for a walk and the pack on her back tells him what she’s doing: she’s about to run away.

She could get hurt, or worse, disappear forever. He can’t let her go; he’d never forgive himself if he did.

Please give a warm welcome to author Lisette Brodey

Tell us a bit about yourself.

Thanks for inviting me to your blog, Helle.

I’m originally from the suburbs of Philadelphia. After high school, I lived in New York City for ten years where I worked in the radio industry for quite a while. It’s a long story, but I first moved out to Los Angeles many years ago where I worked for a couple of studios as an assistant. I then moved back East, where I worked as a freelance writer and resume specialist, and have now been back in Los Angeles for nine years.

These days, once in a while, I work as a SAG background actor. Oh, and I write books. And that’s the very short version of my life story.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I started writing as soon as I learned the difference between the lead point and the eraser on a pencil. But I wasn’t always sure what I wanted to write. For a while, I thought I wanted to be a playwright, then a screenwriter. But after writing nine books, I know that writing fiction in the form of a book is by far what suits me best.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My current book, Hotel Obscure, is a book of seventeen themed short stories that take place in a run-down hotel in an unnamed city. I really love writing literary fiction and I wanted to work with an eclectic cast of characters and story lines all within the space of one book. It presented unique challenges, but was very stimulating and rewarding at the same time.

One of the challenges, for example, was to make sure that the stories appear in the right order, as some reference events in other stories. Also, I needed to be certain that I didn’t write details in one story that contradicted what I wrote in another. One of the rewards in writing Hotel Obscure was that some of the same characters appeared in multiple stories and I was able to continue seemingly finished stories in surprising ways. And yes, many of those ways surprised me!

°

°

What are you working on now?

Right now, I’m editing a romantic comedy and preparing to give it to my editor soon. This is my second RomCom and it takes pace in the same town as my first romantic comedy, Molly Hacker Is Too Picky! That said, this book is neither a sequel nor a series. What is a bit different, however, and definitely great fun, was that I used characters from Molly in supporting roles. But I made very sure that I didn’t give away the ending of Molly.

°

°
Do you have any quirks while writing?

I don’t know if I’d classify anything as a quirk, but unlike some writers, I can’t write with music playing. I have to have quiet so I can hear the words. I also find that I do a better job when I’m awake. Being asleep, however, has its perks: I’ve dreamed many a plot twist and important elements for my current work in progress.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope to find inspiration for many more stories, and like most authors I know, I’d like to have a growing and appreciative readership. In terms of my writing life, I’m more focused on the immediate future. I find it too stressful when I think that far ahead. But on a much larger scale, my writing aside, I hope the world will become a better place.

°

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

First and foremost: don’t rush a book to publication because you’re eager to see it out there and to call yourself a published author. Take care to get the best cover you can and have your book professionally edited. I know that it is a financial impossibility for some (not easy for me), but there are ways to work around these hurdles. I know some authors who are able to self-edit very well, but even they have help in some areas to check their work. Do your best. It will almost definitely be a longer process than you expect, but you won’t regret getting it right the first time.

°

°
Do you have anything to say to your readers?

First, I’d like to say that I appreciate each and every person who gives my books a chance. I know there is no book, movie, song, artist, place, food, person etc. etc. that will appeal to everyone. Taste is subjective.

Second, readers looking at my books will notice that I write in several genres, from romantic comedies to YA Paranormal to women’s fiction to literary fiction. Sure, those genres are quite different and the books are too. But at the same time, I have writing styles that are present in every single book. I write character-driven stories and I always have multiple story arcs of some kind. I also like revealing secrets and giving readers satisfying endings.

°

°
Oh, and one more thing: my 1970s coming-of-age novel, Squalor, New Mexico, has absolutely nothing to do with New Mexico.

°
It’s been fun. Thanks, Helle!
