JUST BREATHE Blurb:

When Cassie Shaw looks at Noah Hunt, she sees a knight in shining armor, but she’s convinced he sees her as nothing but damaged goods.

Noah saved her from a brutal assault, talked her through a panic attack, and held her when she broke down crying.

Noah is a mystery. He avoids talking about his past, his phone rings with calls from four women he won’t talk about, and he receives texts from over a dozen more. To add to the intrigue, when Cassie tries to kiss him, he gets a look of sheer panic in his eyes.

Cassie finally finds a chink in Noah’s armor, and realizes that he’s even more damaged than she is.

He saved her.

Now it’s her turn to save him.

(TRIGGER WARNING: This content deals with an account of sexual assault and may be triggering to some people.)

Release Day for the 2nd Installment in The BirthRight Series, is Finally here!

Image

After six months of writing–and planning–I’m so happy to announce the official release of TEMPTED (A BirthRight Novel #2). I’ll admit, I was nervous to release the first book, TETHERED, as I wasn’t sure people would appreciate my “organic” writing style. But since I’ve learned there are plenty of people who appreciate it, I’m so excited to share this next book. And if you were a fan of book one, I promise, you will LOVE this next installment even more!

So what makes book 2 so special, you ask? Well, how about the fact that when something happens to Chloe and she can no longer tell the story, some of your favorite characters take over. Like…

Hunter Payne, Chloe’s love interest, and hottie extraordinaire! He has his own special “power”, but I won’t say what that is, incase you haven’t read book 1 yet. But in TEMPTED, you have a chance to connect with him in a new way. He’s flawed. He’s human (mostly). And he’ll do anything to save the girl he loves. And one of those things will have you laughing your @$$ off!

Image

Next in line to tell the story, is Moira, Chloe’s mother, and a GHOST! That’s right, you’ll get to hear from a ghost. She has her own special journey through the book, but the story she has to tell will most likely bring a tear to your eye. There are things from the past–surrounding her death–that aren’t what Chloe believed. And she’s here to set the record straight!

Image

And finally, we have darling Dru, Chloe’s brother, the Empath. If this sweetie didn’t steal your heart in the 1st book, get ready to fall in love. Well, that is, if you like the sweet, sensitive, emotional type of guy. But he’s an Empath, so he “feels” everything from those around him. Kind of hard to NOT be sensitive when people’s emotions control every moment of your life. Also, he has a new bond with Hunter, which is quite humorous most of the time. These two hotties have a way of bringing out the inner teenager in each other.

Image

And of course, Chloe will still narrate half the book. But I’ll warn you, she won’t be the same Chloe you remember. She’s growing up, and you’ll see her change before your very eyes. Especially once Evil lures her away from her family–and their magical link.

Image

 

And speaking of Evil, I’d be remiss if I didn’t introduce you to one of our newest characters, Xander Morrow, who does everything he can to steal Chloe away from Hunter. You might grow to hate him–but don’t be surprised if you hate that you end up loving him. Just sayin’!

Xander Teaser

TEMPTED is darker, has more magic and new twists-and-turns, while still maintaing the same heart and family connection from book one. I can’t wait for you to read it!

DISCLAIMER: WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE BOOK COVER, ALL TEASER IMAGES ARE OF THE ACTORS I ENVISION AS MY DREAM CAST IN THESE ROLES WHEN I SELL THE SCREENPLAY.

A Sweet Upper Young Adult / New-Adult Paranormal Romance, perfect for fans of CHARMED!

What if the very thing to save you—is the one thing beyond your reach?

Torn between the two men who have fallen for her—and the evil who wants to possess her—twenty-year-old Chloe Bishop can no longer remember the fatal vision which threatens her future happiness. But when the magical link is severed between Chloe and her Wiccan family, they must find a way to save her, before temptation leads her into darkness—and into the welcoming arms of Mr. Wrong.

MY WRITING PROCESS BLOG TOUR

What I love most about the writing community, is the support you get from complete strangers. Over the years, I’ve been part of many writing groups, and none were lacking in the support department. No matter where you are in the world–and no matter where you are in your writing career–you’ll always find others in the same place you are. There are always wonderful writers willing to take the journey with you–or writers willing to share their knowledge from the various paths they’ve chosen. At the end of the day, you always feel like you’re part of something bigger. And there’s no better feeling in the world!

Fellow Indie Author, Lex Martin, tagged me to join this week’s tour. Her debut novel, Dearest Clementine, was just released this past week and is sure to zoom to the top of the Best Seller’s List in no time!

Dearest Clementine

So, here’s how the tour works. I’ve got a few questions to answer for you, and then you’ll get to meet a few other authors who will join the tour next week!

1. What am I working on? At the moment, I’m in the middle of a mad-dash to get book 2 in The BirthRight Series, TEMPTED, out the door for its May 27th release. As much as I loved book 1, TETHERED, I must confess I love this book even more. I’m also in the middle of plotting out the details for book 3, which I’ll be starting in just a few weeks. So it’s a crazy, yet super exciting time.

2. How does my work differ from others in its genre? The BirthRight Series is technically a New Adult Urban Fantasy, but since many readers assume NA means “steamy”, I usually market it towards a young adult audience, since there’s no naughty business going on–and because the series is full of positive messages for young girls. And as an added bonus, the series is loaded with “nice” guys, who actually know how to treat great girls. It’s been a while since I’ve read that.

But the main thing that makes this series so different from other YA and NA books, is the voice. My writing style is very organic and raw. As someone who once felt tortured to read books in school, I wanted to write my series in a way that would truly feel like someone you “know” is telling you the story…not a writer. I want my 1st person POV to feel like it’s your friend talking to you. To me, it gives it more intimacy, and makes it easier to connect with the person telling the story. So if I can get even a handful of teens to read my series, who would otherwise have no desire to pick up a book, then I would consider my job done.

Other writer’s and reviewers have criticized my “fresh and breezy” writing style, but it happens to be one of the very things my target audience enjoys the most. Is it for everyone? Absolutely not. But knowing there’s an audience I CAN connect with, regardless of the size, will keep me writing in this style for years to come.  

3. Why do I write what I do? Well, I write paranormal stories for one reason, and one reason only: because they tend to be the only type of books I enjoy reading myself. Yes, it’s sad, I know. I’m sure I miss out on thousands of amazing stories. But if there isn’t something magical–or supernatural going on–then I get distracted by anything that moves, or sparkles. Yes, kinda like an ADD squirrel!

4. How does my writing process work? Without a doubt, I’m a plotter. I have an unbelievably structured process to keep me on track. When I get a new book idea, I immediately start jotting down notes, but quickly turn it into an outline. And I absolutely have to write the story in the order things happen. I’ve tried jumping around to different parts of the book, but all that accomplishes is giving me a migraine. UGH!

I’ve also had bad experiences with crit partners, which only resulted in low self-esteem and not being able to write for a few years. In retrospect, as someone who writes “sweet” stories, I probably shouldn’t have paired up with critters who wrote erotica…lol. Great gals, but they weren’t the best people to properly critique my work. Nor I for them. I always felt like a fish-out-of-water when I read their steamy scenes. But I’m hopeful that one day I’ll be able to find crit partners who write in my genre. It would be amazing to have someone to collaborate with again. There’s nothing better than brainstorming ideas at 2am.

Well that’s it for me! But next week you can learn about a few other uber-talented, Indie Author friends of mine: one who’s sure to scare the bejesus out of you with his eerie tales; another whose sexy nerds will warm your heart; and finally, one who creates suspense that’s sure to keep you on the edge of your seat!    

joeycomp-1

Born in a small town of the smallest state, Rhode Island, Joseph Mazzenga knew he was a writer by the third grade. When his creative simmer turned to an imaginative rage, he embarked on a voyage with no anchor and no horizon. He stepped aboard knowing that this journey will be for the rest of his days. He still looks to the stars to find his way. The navigation can be plodding but the bearing is clear.

Joe is now a full author, by way of children’s literature, Science Fiction, Non-fiction, and Urban Fantasy. Ever pursuing the itch he can’t possibly scratch, he is constantly stretching his boundaries, honing his craft, and fighting mortal enemies such as avoidance and procrastination at every turn. Whether it is a beloved stuffed seal, a hard-nosed orphan stuck on the raw streets of a future time, or a pre-apocalyptic vampire turned human, he is fantasy intermingling with the future.

Joe’s latest creation, MAD TALES, is available now at most online retailers.
