A Song of Life by Megan Rivers

After being disowned by her short-tempered, well-off Australian father on her sixteenth birthday, Christie Kelly finds herself back in her humble Chicago apartment with her loving mother. However, her close friend, Galvin Kismet–yes, THE Galvin Kismet, rock star guitarist of the German rock band Prey for Chance–doesn’t know she was exiled since he’s on his world tour, and she fears their communication is forever severed.

When they finally reconnect, difficult times arise. Christie is out of her comfort zone and things get steamy and serious between her and Galvin. Having to grow up quickly, Christie begins to realize the true meaning of love…and it just might break her.

It’s the second book in a young adult series, Song for You, called “A Song of Life”. It is a fictional memoir of Christie Kelly, someone who is not highly thought of in the media due to her relationship with the ever-popular lead singer and guitarist of rock band Prey for Chance. This second book in the three-book series tells Christie’s side of the story and you’ll end up rooting for her every step of the way.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The story came to me in a dream. It played out like a movie as a slept. When I woke up, I raced to write it down! I was inspired by the actual manned missions to Mars that are in the works. This could happen in the very near future! I wondered what it would be like if someone you love had a one-way ticket to another planet.

Sunshine: The Author’s Edition by Alyssa Cooper

cover-2-girl2
When ozone levels plummeted, the world changed. There’s no going back.

This is a world where sunshine can kill. Where there are heavy steel shutters on every window, and underground tunnels for safe passage. Where citizens nourish themselves with synthetic vitamins and rationed food, living a life in darkness, never seeing the sun.

This is the only world that eighteen-year-old Manda has ever known. As this strong, passionate girl struggles to bloom in a hard and unforgiving world, she finds a single comfort; Jordy, a man who delicately shows her how beautiful life can be. But then the letter comes.

Everything is changing, all over again.

Manda will soon be evacuated from her home, transported across the country to a place where the days are shorter, where it still rains, where the sun is less deadly. There’s only one catch; Jordy may not be going with her.

She bides in agony, fighting to fit as much living into her last few weeks as she can, while she waits to learn if she will soon lose the only man she’s ever loved.

Targeted Audience: Adult

Author Bio:
Alyssa Cooper is a Canadian writer with a graphic design diploma and a passion for story telling. She collects old books and antique typewriters, and has a preference for the darker side of fiction.
After her first full-length publication in 2012, Alyssa spent two years working with traditional publishers, releasing two novels, two short stories, and one poetry collection in just over two years. In 2014, Alyssa decided to make the move into independent publishing, and has since released three short stories and a full length collection.

“I’ve always had a fascination with the darker side of life. With monsters, and shadows, and the things that go bump in the night. I’ve also always had a bit of a preoccupation with death – which may not be strictly healthy, but has always been a wonderful inspiration.

When I was four years old I stumbled down the stairs to find my dad watching Aliens – and for some reason, he let me stay up and watch it with him. Needless to say, I’ve been hooked on horror ever since, and Ripley will always be my hero.

Stories like the Alien trilogy had a serious influence on my writing style. The monsters were terrifying, but it was the humans who were interesting; they were real characters, not just props. Ripley was a strong-female-character before the strong-female-character existed, and yet she cries, she sings, she mothers first Jonesy and then Newt and then an entire crew of criminals. She was so real, so human, even in the face of complete chaos.

These are the stories I want to tell. I want to find the humanity – or lack there of – in everything.”

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Honestly, sometimes I feel like Sunshine wrote itself.

The concept is inspired by the environmental changes we’ve all been facing for years now, of course; the idea that some day our short-sighted actions could rob us of our beautiful sun. But the love story, the real heart of this book, was the story that truly needed to be told. And I think it was Amanda, a fictional character, that really inspired it.

My first outline for Sunshine had the story end with Manda’s suicide. And then I wrote the character, and she laughed in my face. She said, “I’d never do that, and you KNOW it.”

So, I was forced to write her a new story instead.

Author Bio:
Hi. I’m Opal Carew and I write erotic romance for St. Martin’s Press.
I’ve been writing since 1993, though originally I wrote futuristic, urban fantasy, science fiction, paranormal and contemporary romance. These stories are set in the present, future, or alternate realities and most of my stories are steamy. I am now republishing these under the name Amber Carew.
As Opal Carew, I write erotic romances which always have a romance and a happy ending.
So why do I like writing erotic romance? I like being able to push beyond traditional boundaries. I like dealing with a woman who is growing and evolving – questioning her sexual boundaries and pushing past them. I have been writing stories that involve multiple characters and it’s fascinating to work with the interactions between them. What fun to write a heroine choosing between two equally appealing heroes? My current project involves a group of several people who interact sexually and I find the scenario an enjoyable challenge.
I try to keep my characters real. I like to have a heroine with whom the reader can empathize. These aren’t women who just jump into bed with anyone. They find themselves in an unusual situation – something exciting and erotic – but a situation where they have to push themselves beyond their comfort level. As a result, they grow as a person. So often fear holds us back – of what others will think of us, of what we will think about ourselves – and we don’t follow our hearts. These women push past that fear.

Shadow Heart by Pamela Taeuffer


Book Description
Nobody wants to talk about them, but there are events that occur in our lives that become deep dark secrets we hold inside. And they dramatically influence who we are and how we experience the world.

Such is the case for seventeen year-old Nicky Young who was raised by an alcoholic father and disengaged mother. While Nicky tries to make her way into the world she is confronted by the demons of her dysfunctional and sometimes violent upbringing.

As a young child, Nicky witnesses her older sister having her head slammed into a bowl of creamed corn by her father and then yanks his belt from the loops of his pants and begins to relentlessly beat her sister. It is experiences like this that ravage her self-esteem and make trusting men next to impossible…until at 17, Nicky meets Ryan Tilton, a high profile professional baseball player eight years her senior, who expresses an interest in her.
While she is interested in Ryan, Nicky questions his ulterior motive for wanting to be with an inexperienced girl. Is this man a scoundrel or does he genuinely care about her? Nicky is torn between protecting her vulnerable heart and wanting to trust Ryan and develop a relationship. Ryan brings his own demons to the party – losing his father at the age of fourteen, his early fame and a sexual partner from his past who will not leave him alone.

Will their young, uncertain love be enough to help them open their hearts and experience intimacy they both crave so deeply or is Nicky and Ryan on a collision course for failure?

Loosely based on the author’s life growing up in San Francisco, this inspired work of fiction deals with the disturbing secrets siblings share, the dance between love and protecting one’s heart, and the innate desire to connect with another even when it means risking everything.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was sitting beside a pool near my home in Alabama and was writing in a notebook and these characters became suddenly very clear to me. I fell in love with them and decided to follow them around their lives together and recording it. Then I left the book alone for a few years, tried to publish it but it’s small and quiet and it seemed most publishers I talked to wanted explosions and vampires. Finally I’ve gotten out.
