Where The Blue Thorns Grow by Maya Riley

Blurb:

What do you do, when everything you’ve ever known disappears in the blink of an eye?

As children, my twin brother and I read about a mountain range called the Carbolitas. It was the only place in the world that had these blue thorned flowers. We made it our life’s dream to make it to the top and see these strange and rare flowers. Until, I watched my twin brother, Clif, fall 4,000 feet to his death during a climbing trip gone wrong.

After Clif passed, I decided I was going to achieve our dream, even if it killed me. Lucky for me, I had a team of guys who’s sole focus was to keep us all safe.

We are going to do whatever it takes to make it to the place where the blue thorns grow, no matter what.

Tell us a bit about yourself

My name is Ira Myriam and I’m an independent, non-profit blogger, with a lot of passion for new upcoming authors. I am always open to meeting new authors and reading new books, but the best part about being independent and no-profit is that I read whatever I feel like and whenever I feel like, which mean that when I love a book, I really love a book. ❤
When people see my reviews they think that I give everyone a five star review, which is only partially true. Yes, I give the books I review five stars, but that is because the only books I read and review are five star books. I have been very fortunate lately, as I haven’t encountered anything less than a great book for a while now.

How did you get started blogging?

I started my blog to thank the authors for their stories and share my love for books with other readers. It rapidly became my passion. In the process I have discovered many wonderful new authors and some amazing books, most of which were debut novels. I started writing about them, interviewing the authors, providing readers with reading lists for long running popular series, and the new and upcoming releases from the authors I follow. And here we are.
Three years later, and 170+ posts, I am supergrateful to all the authors for their stories, for not blocking me when I bug them, and to all the people who follow my reviews and recommendations. I also have a group now, where everyone can post book related stuff as much as they want, and where everyone can find their new favourite books or an author.

What genres of books do you blog about?

I started with the idea that I would blog about urban fantasy and paranormal romance, mainstream. But then sci-fi and dystopian happened and YA fantasy and epic fantasy. And then finally some of my favourite authors came up with contemporary and historical, and reverse harem wiggled its way in, and poetry, so now I literally do not have a genre or theme I would not cover, as long as the material is well written.

Have you ever considered writing a book yourself?

I don’t think I thought about it much because I have zero talent for writing. I can reflect on other people’s work and critically analyse their work, but starting a story from scratch? I wouldn’t even know where to start. Authors are rock stars, I’m just a groupie.

Who are some of your favourite authors?

I used to have several favourite authors many years ago. I think I have about fifty right now, and the number is climbing. I am not a type of a person to forget my previous loves just because a shiny new book came out, so I adopt them all. So now I have favourite authors from years ago and some from few weeks or months ago, but in the end I love all of them and I love all of their books. That is probably the reason for my lack of time and difficulty catching up with all the new releases.

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope that someday I get stranded on a deserted island with my kindle and a solar charger and stay there for about two years doing nothing but reading. Or maybe not. That would mean that I would miss all the new releases. I can’t have that. But seriously, I hope that I’ll keep getting opportunities to meet new authors and stay in touch with the ones I already know, read and share their books, and I hope that they never stop writing.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Respect authors. Please don’t support book piracy in any way, it is hurting the authors and if the damage becomes too great, they might stop writing, which would be a huge tragedy. There are always giveaways, review copies, freebies in one book fest or another, get those.

And also, join my group, check out my blog, and keep your eye out because I often give books away for whatever reason I can think of.
And to my authors, please never stop writing. There will never be too many of you or too many stories. There will always be readers eagerly anticipating your next book or story, and love you for it as much as I do. Thank you for all your stories.LinkTree

I’m a killer and I’m good at it.

It’s not something you can put on a resume or bring up during a date — but we all have our secrets.

The visions I see at night are part of mine.

The Elders send me visions of my new targets — chosen by them — for me to kill. I don’t determine if they are good or bad — just that their fate is to die by my hand.

Questioning the Elders is suicide. I am just a monster for them to direct.

One night my vision features four sinfully yummy men. They seem to find me delicious as well.

When my life gets thrown into chaos, these men are the only ones I can trust.

What happens when I am not the monster I’ve always believed myself to be?

I went from being the killer to the target.

One thing is for sure, I don’t plan on remaining anyone’s prey.

Infernally Mine is the first book in a paranormal RH/#whychoose romance series with assassins, shifters, and a succubus. Intended for mature audiences (18+). Contains MM, foul language, and violence.

I am a 35 year old secretary from Vancouver, WA (USA). I enjoy reading, crafting and spending time with those people who are important in my life.

°

How long have you been a PA?

I started PA work in April of 2019

°

Have you always wanted to be a PA?

No, I didn’t really know what a PA did honestly. I was just asked to work for some authors one day and I enjoy helping them so I jumped on it. I would have done it for free to be honest but they wouldn’t let me. Haha.

°

What do you do as a PA?

I always have a hard time with this questions because I don’t really know the line between what is actual PA work and what I am doing for fun. Lol. I keep the calendar for Takeovers, sign then up for events, handle tasks that they need me too, sometimes I make graphics, find teasers, I promote their books and manage their groups… I do a lot of the tasks that would keep them from writing basically.

°

Do you have any quirks while working?

I don’t think so?

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope everyone realizes how awesome my authors are and love them as much as I do. Yea, I’m talking about you, Kendra Moreno, K.A. Knight and Poppy Woods, you talented bishes.

°

Do you have any advice for new PA’s?

Make friends in the PA community, ask loads of questions, ask for help and always remember that you and your authors are a team, what is good for them is good for you.

°

Are you available for new work or booked solid.

I am not taking on any full time authors at the moment but I do offer some of my services on their own and an author could PM me anytime to see what those services are.

Tell us a bit about yourself

Well let’s see. First is that I love to read. I probably spend close to as much time reading as I do writing, just because I love following all of the adventures and romances my favorite authors spin on their stories. I also have a huge artistic bent. I paint and sculpt. Surprisingly when I attended university I got a degree in history with a minor in literature. It has helped me when it comes to research, but I often think of it as my debt pile. I just recently relocated from my home state Alaska to Florida.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Actually my first passion was art. I tried for years to make money from my paintings and sculptures, but it never was particularly profitable, although I did make some money. My first book, The VaDorok I wrote in January. I was bored, with nothing to occupy myself since the tv and internet temporarily shut off. I fell in love with writing with that story. I’d had a few half hearted false starts the year before, but never gave it much serious consideration until I completed that book.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

For the Mate Index I was inspired a lot by the Celestial mates books, but with my own spin on it. From that I started thinking “what if…”
The Monsterly Yours series is more general. I love humorous romances, especially ones dealing with the supernatural such as the books by Katie McAlister. I wanted to start with the kind of unlikely heroes that you would not normally find in most paranormal and fantasy romances.

°

°

What are you working on now?

Right now I am working on the next installment of the Mate Index, The Vori’s Secret. We see more of the Agraak which will pave the way for The Heart of the Agraak I am planning for November which takes the reader to Agraadax. I am also working book 3 of The Monsterly Yours books, The Accidental Werewolf’s Mate. I hope to have both out before the end of September. I am also working on some special stuff for Halloween.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Quirks? I don’t know. I drink a lot of coffee when I write, almost addictive if that counts. I also write with two toddlers in the house so I may just need all that caffiene.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

My hope is that I keep putting out stuff people love. Now that am in Florida I also hope to be able to attend events as an author.

°

°

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

I think my biggest advice is if you want to write, it is never too late and your circumstances too bad to prevent you from writing. My first book I put together my own cover and self edited the best I could (and then went back and updated with an professionally edited version when I discovered that folks actually liked it). If you want to write, do it!

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I just want to say how much I appreciate everyone who has borrowed, bought and shared my work. My fans are amazing and I feel totally blessed to have the readership I do!

Tell us a bit about yourself

*this makes me nervous*
Okay, a little about myself? What can I say that hasn’t already been said before? I’m a Scottish/Irish Mexican mix of a person, and live in Mexico with my husband and son in a small town surrounded on every side by mountains and volanoes. I’m a bit of an introvert, but I’m trying to break out of that shell and make friends for myself. I loooove anything and everything that has to do with the ocean. I seriously wish I lived by the beach. I have two pet goldfish (Frankenfish and Jordan) and a pet guinea pig named Jacob Kawalsky. I’m pretty open and will probably answer any question haha.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve wanted to be an author since I was 12 or 13 years old. It’s kind of when my love for books started. My mom says I’ve always been a bookaholic, but I remember that books didn’t start to really, truly impact me until I started middle school and that’s when I started dabbling in poetry and writing stories for manga. It just stuck with me. I loved it, still do.

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My current series is… *counts on fingers* Okay, well I have a lot of current series but the most recent one I published (Slave to Ice & Shadows, Royal Lies) is a spin off to Royal Secrets. I just really wanted to write from the point of view of a female main character who was different from the rest. But overrall, the idea of this whole world came to me because of my love for mermaids, and because I thought it would be fun to have a type of “I look like royalty and am going to pretend to be her for a while” type story for myself. (Lizzie McGuire/Monte Carlo, anyone?) hahahah.

°

°

What are you working on now?

Right now I’m working on a cowrite with someone who has been my best friend since we were 15. It’s a secret project and I can’t say much about it except that it’s out of my comfort zone and going to be a contemporary romance series. I’m also working on book three of Origins of the Six series with my coauthor, AK Koonce, as well as book three of Royal Lies.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Hmm… I wouldn’t really call it a quirk, but I have to have absolute silence when I’m writing. I’m one of those people who can’t concentrate with noise in the background or any little bothersome thing. I have to be in a comfortable position, so that means sweatpants or pajamas, and if it’s cold warm socks, while I sit on a pillow and am covered in my mermaid tail blanket. I also can’t write in long sleeves for some reason. And I have to have something to drink and/or snack on in front of me or else I’m lost.
Once, I couldn’t write a scene because the goldfish kept pushing the rocks around in their tank and that was just way too much noise for me hahahah.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

So–and I think a lot of authors might have this–I have a list of “author” goals. It’s a mental list, mind you, that I started when I knew I wanted to publish books. I won’t go into super detail about what’s on this list, I don’t want anyone to think I’m super delusional or overly ambitious (is there such a thing?), but right now what I want/hope for is to cconnect with fans. I really would like to go to an author con somewhere and meet other authors, meet fans, sign books, give out swag. That’s one of my ultimate goals for next year.

°

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

I would suggest, write what you love and make sure it comes from the heart. Also, don’t give up. Writing is HARD, but you have to keep doing it. Even if you feel down or sad or like you aren’t good enough, you ARE. I know it may not seem like it and I’ve felt that way a lot, I still feel that way sometimes (most times lol), but it really is a very rewarding career. Even if your first paycheck is only a few dollars, I like to look at it like “I have a few people out there who know my name, who read my story, and that’s enough.”

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

To my readers, I probably don’t say this enough because I’m always busy, but I just want to thank you for picking up my book, for reading, for reviewing, for recommending. It means the world to me and it’s everything I’ve ever wanted out of an author career. Please, if you feel intimidated or scared to send me a message and you really want to DON’T. I looove receiving messages from you guys, even if it’s just a quick “I really liked your book”, it makes my day so much better and I WILL reply. Probably not right away, but I will. I promise. 🙂

We are adding clients still, we actually have an amazing sale going on right now.

#Preorder Leaving Summerland by Kathryn Moon

Leaving Summerland: A Reverse Harem Romance (Summerland Series Book 3) by Kathryn Moon

°

°

Settling in Summerland was easy. Staying will be harder.

With every week in her new home Lucy realizes the divide between herself and her divine neighbors is wider than she realized. Nightmares plague her sleep, whispering locals leave her paranoid, and the secrets keep piling up when Jack and Liam leave town unexpectedly.

Is the cost of staying in a world where she doesn’t belong, worth the rewards of the men she’s met along the way?

Lucy must fight for her place in Summerland, and possibly even Summerland itself in the action packed conclusion to the Summerland stories.
