Who Doesn’t L.O.V.E. A Free Book?!

We all like…wait…love free books, don’t we? Especially in the middle of summer, when reading is on everyone’s radar. A great book is a must while lying on a beach, lounging by the pool, or simply curling up on the couch in the air conditioning and away from the 104 degree heat that lurks outside. Hey, remember, I live in Texas. It’s hotter than Hades here June-August.

Guess what? I released another book. My second book in four months. I’m shocked, blessed and somewhat bewildered at how the words just keep coming and the stories just keep developing.

I started a novella trilogy just a few short months ago. An idea that was found on an old flash drive. A story that was only half a chapter complete for years, but was finally finished a few short weeks ago.

Don’t know what a novella is? It’s longer than a short story, but shorter than a novel. It’s the perfect size book to finish in only a few sittings. Easy enough for you finish before your third margarita by the pool. Holla!

It is YA fiction. And yes, there is romance, heated passion and a love triangle…and angels and demons and the backdrop of a beautiful city. But overall, it’s a story about second chances and the gift of life.

This is book 1 of 3 in what I call, “The Unseen Wings Trilogy”.

I had an amazing editor in Quebec that helped me make it sparkle, and a company in London to help me convert my manuscript to a beautiful Amazon-ready eBook.

And now you can read it, share it and hopefully drool over it…for FREE today. Promise me something though, if you love it, will you tell somewhere where to find this crazy, funny and sometimes serious devoted author? And if you hate it, will you still love me anyway, because well…I adore having you around.

Writing Makes Room For New Ideas

Writing is not a habit, it’s a need that I have…that I crave…that I love.

There is rarely ever a dead-end street within the crevices of my mind. Lurking in the dark corners, I often find fragments to a story I feel is worth telling to others. A beginning piece to a beautiful novel often starts with one single image, flash of a face or word that crosses over me. More often than not, it happens at 2am, while waiting impatiently in the long line at the grocery store or when a song hits the radio waves on my iPod.

It is not rare for me to have 3-4 books in process at once. Hence…now. I have three on the table. One nearly complete, one 1/4 of the way done and another 1/2 way finished. I do find that I have to pull myself away from one or the other at times…writer’s block, it does exist. Skipping between novels allows an even broader range of creativity, and I love that.

I am currently 1/2 way finished with a new novella series entitled Unseen Wings. A story about a beautiful young girl who steps into the world of the Guardians, earth inhabited guardian angels, at age 19. A life full of riches, elegance and detrimental choices await her. Do you choose love or do you choose the life you’ve been given?

Becoming a Guardian means giving your life to another, a life in which you vow to protect, honor…to serve the soul you are bestowed. In this, you are giving forth the right to only administer protection to this one individual, eliminating the opportunity for direct involvement or deep interaction. We are to oversee; we are not to satisfy our own desires. – The Guardian Vow

The first novella in the series, Guardian, will be available soon. Upon completion, the book will be sold via ePub for free for all to enjoy. Book two will soon follow. Are you as excited as I am?! This story is ten years in the making. The idea found within the confines of an old flash drive a few weeks ago. Pretty awesome how book ideas can fall in your lap sometimes.

What drives your ideas, thoughts and pieces to your creative stories? Do you focus on one story at a time, or do you have a slew of unfinished novels on your hard drive?

Happy Wednesday! Now…back to writing.
