With Love Series

This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Alexa Randolph will be awarding a $10 Amazon/BN GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.

See below to sign up for the GIVEAWAY.




With Love, Ella:

Ella Chambers was a top event planner in New York, about to marry the man of her dreams. Daniel Collins was the quarterback for the Giants, on his way to winning his first ever Super Bowl. Life couldn’t get any better when they both said those three words to each other and planned to spend the rest of their lives together.
Until one perfect day came crashing down around them when they hear the three words no one wants to hear: You have cancer.

Now instead of dresses, flowers, and invitations, they’re dealing with doctors appointments, tests, and tears. Their love and strength will be tested and tortured, but they’ll fight with everything they’ve got to make it through.


Daniel, Ever After:

Daniel and Molly are both lost in their own worlds. They recently lost the most important people in their lives. They are connected in so many ways but are complete strangers. They are barely hanging on, but a drunken encounter sends them over the edge of despair. Can they bring each other out of their misery, or will they continue to push each other away until it’s too late? Find out in the sequel to With Love, Ella, titled Daniel, Ever After.

read an excerpt...
Daniel stumbled into their bedroom late into the night after a few celebratory drinks with his and Ella’s families. They had been on a high from winning the Super Bowl and the only thing that would have made that night any better would have been getting to celebrate it with Ella. He was grateful she was at least able to see the win up close instead of through a TV screen.


He couldn’t shake the bad feeling he had as he tossed and turned all night. He knew any day now she would be gone, and he would have to go on without her. He wasn’t sure if that was even possible. She was his strength, and his rock. He finally fell asleep thinking about the sleeping beauty lying next to him.

Daniel awoke the next morning due to the bright light shining through the window. He groaned and rolled over, trying to block the sun out. When he realized he wasn’t going to fall back asleep, he sat up and rubbed the sleep from his eyes. He looked down to see it was 10:30 a.m. and that Ella was still sleeping, then did a double take and screamed. She was gray, and he knew in his gut that if he felt her, she would be cold.

Ella Collins, the love of his life, was dead and there was nothing he could do about it.

ABOUT ALEXA RANDOLPH...
Does this book have a special meaning to you? i.e. where you found the idea, its symbolism, its meaning, who you dedicated it to, what made you want to write it?
This book series is very special to me as it is the first two books I wrote. They became a part of my family. I realized as I continued to write it was a way of healing from a bad car accident I had been In and the grieving process I went through. It was like my characters and I went through it together for different reasons. I dedicate the books to my parents because they always supported me from start to finish.

Where do you get your storylines from?
It’s a little bit from people the I know, but mostly from story ideas that come in my head.

Was this book easier or more difficult to write than others?  Why?
I would say it was hard as it was my first two. I think the second book was easier because I had a better writing technique from the coaching I had with the previous book.

Do you only write one genre?
I typically have written and read romance and women’s fiction.

Give us a picture of where you write, where you compose these words…is it Starbucks, a den, a garden…we want to know your inner sanctum?
I typically write at home. Most of the time at my kitchen table and sometimes I will sit in bed and write. I like the comfort of being in my space and I typically have coffee as I am writing.

And finally, of course…was there any specific event or circumstance that made you want to be a writer?
I am not sure. I am an only child and have always had a wild imagination. I would make up stories and scenarios in my head. As I grew up, I would write letters and cards to family and friends. I finally came up with an idea for a book that I was passionate about. I researched and outlined before finally writing and "With Love, Ella" was born.

She’s loved him all her life… but will he be there when she needs him the most?

Disheartened and adrift after being written out of a hit TV show, actor Aidan Flaherty returns to his family’s historic winery, where he’s invested some of the fortune he’s made. As the holidays approach, Aidan becomes intrigued with the old showboat that’s dry-docked just east of town… and even more intrigued with the daughter of his former mentor, who now owns it. He decides to buy the boat and restore it to its former glory.

Single mom Holly Santos is back in River’s Edge after her divorce and she is over men in general and actors in particular. If she could only get rid of her father’s old showboat, a source of fascination for her son, Mateo. She never expects her old crush to walk into her tea shop or the fireworks that happen every time they’re in the same room. Can Aidan convince her that he is determined to restore their shared heritage on the showboat and that he’s home to stay?


Read an Excerpt


“Are you done?” He choked out, also not moving back.

“I don’t know.”

“Well, decide, because I’m going to kiss you.”

“No, you’re not.”

“I’m pretty sure I am.” Aidan took a step closer, pressing her against the railing with his body and set his hands on the rail on either side of her.

Her eyes closed and he felt her trembling. Or he was. He couldn’t tell anymore. He was confused and aching. He lifted his hands and took one step back. “Leave, Holly, because I really, really want to kiss you, but I can’t if you’re not all in.”

Holly eyed him with suspicion. “I’m not sure I’ll ever be all in with you, Aidan Flaherty.” With that she reached up and put one small hand behind his head, tugging his face down to hers. Her lips touched his, gently at first, just a whisper of a kiss. When she increased the pressure, the kiss building in urgency, Aidan wasn’t confused anymore. He knew exactly what he wanted.

He pulled her into his arms, thrusting his fingers into the soft hair on the back of her head, holding her still for his mouth while she wrapped her arms around his neck. The flicker of desire that had started when she’d walked onto the deck began to burn inside him, and he slid one hand down her spine to her hip. She was so incredibly tiny, he was almost afraid to hold her.

Almost. But when she touched her seeking tongue to the seam of his lips, he opened for her, tasting coffee and butterscotch and some unique flavor that was intoxicatingly Holly.

A Sickness in the Soul

Historical Mystery
This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. William Savage will be awarding a $50 Amazon/BN GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.

See below to sign up for the GIVEAWAY.


“Many people wear masks. Some to hide their feelings; some to conceal their identity; and some to hide that most hideous plague of mankind: a sickness in the soul.”

Ashmole Foxe, Norwich bookseller, man-about-town and solver of mysteries will encounter all of these in this tangled drama of hatred, obsession and redemption.

This is a story set in the England of the 1760s, a time of rigid class distinctions, where the rich idle their days away in magnificent mansions, while hungry children beg, steal and prostitute themselves on the streets. An era on the cusp of revolution in America and France; a land where outward wealth and display hide simmering political and social tensions; a country which had faced intermittent war for the past fifty years and would need to survive a series of world-wide conflicts in the fifty years ahead.

Faced with no less than three murders, occurring from the aristocracy to the seeming senseless professional assassination of a homeless vagrant, Ashmole Foxe must call on all his skill and intelligence to uncover the sickness which appears to be infecting his city’s very soul.

Can Foxe uncover the truth which lies behind a series of baffling deaths, from an aristocrat attending a ball to a vagrant murdered where he slept in a filthy back-alley?


read an excerpt...
Naturally, all this affability ended the moment Foxe stepped into the Great Hall itself. Sir Samuel would have used this as the meeting place to impress his influence and social status on all his visitors, and on Mr Foxe most of all. Now he received Foxe standing, his back to a large fireplace with an elaborate alabaster surround. Above him could be seen the coat of arms of the Valmar family. I may be a man like you, all this seemed to proclaim, but I am not just your social superior. I am a Valmar too. Remember that.

The baronet had dressed himself in a suit of fine brown wool embroidered in gold, over a pale cream waistcoat sprigged with tiny flowers. From his leather shoes with their golden buckles and his spotless white silk stockings up to his freshly powdered wig, he was the embodiment of the rich landowner suffering the attentions of some troublesome tenant. He was also in a combative mood. He launched his attack at once and without preliminaries.

‘Say what you have to say, sir, then get out!’ the baronet barked. ‘I am only suffering your presence because my wife begged me to do so. According to her, you have some important information affecting the Valmar family. My family heritage is everything to me. We Valmars came over with the Conqueror and have been here ever since. In all that time, no one has dishonoured the family name. No one ever shall, while I live and breathe. Now, get on with it — and be brief!’

When Foxe had stood before this man the last time, Sir Samuel had affected an air of complete indifference. Now all was different. What he wanted was to send this meddlesome tradesman about his business; preferably with his tail between his legs. By the end of his opening speech, his face was suffused with red and purple from the effort of holding his temper in check. Foxe noted how the other man’s breathing was shallow, his fists clenched tight and his eyes narrowed with fury. He had expected some such display of temper, but even he was taken aback by the vehemence of Sir Samuel’s attack. Still, he had determined in advance nothing would shake his calmness. He therefore replied in a quiet voice, his words measured and his tone mild and reasonable. To his quiet satisfaction, he observed immediately how much this gentle manner seemed to inflame Sir Samuel even more.

READ ABOUT WILLIAM SAVAGE:

What would we find under your bed?

Dust, I expect. When I was a child, it would have been a chamber pot. I was born in a house dating from the 1690s, where there was no central heating, water pipes made of lead, and where the frost left lovely patterns on the INSIDE of the windows in the winter.

What was the scariest moment of your life?
Fortunately, I’ve survived more than seventy years without any real traumas, so I can’t answer this in any interesting way. Speaking to large audiences has never worried me, nor has going to new places or being in remote areas. I’m not afraid of flying, like spiders (even big, hairy ones) and snakes as well. The only things that make me weak with fear are heights, and I take very good care to stay well away from those.

Do you listen to music while writing? If so what?
Never. I concentrate on what I’m doing at the time. Music would only distract me. I love music and have been fortunate enough to take part in many musical performances in my time, but I would never use it as background, unless it was so boring that I couldn’t be bothered to listen to it properly.

What is something you'd like to accomplish in your writing career next year?
I’m happy to go on as I am going. I have many more stories to tell yet and no ambition to do anything else. I don’t write for money or fame or to feed my ego. I write purely for fun. The day it stops being fun is the day I stop for good.

How long did it take you to write this book?
About three months, including all the false starts, periods of procrastination and revisions. That’s about normal for me. I write quickly and never agonise over particular passages as I do it. Then I set it aside for a week or so before I begin on the first revision. Two edits are about normal. After that, you begin to spoil what you’ve done. By the time I’ve spent some three months with a book, I’m convinced it’s all rubbish anyway, so I send it out into the world to sink or swim on its own.


BIO & LINKS
I started to write fiction as a way of keeping my mind active in retirement. Throughout my life, I have read and enjoyed hundreds of detective stories and mystery novels. One of my other loves is history, so it seemed natural to put the two together. Thus began two series of
murder mystery books set in Norfolk, England.

           
All my books are set between 1760 and around 1800, a period of turmoil in Britain, with constant wars, revolutions in America and France and finally the titanic, 22-year struggle with Napoleon.
           
The Ashmole Foxe series takes place at the start of this time and is located in Norwich. Mr Foxe is a dandy, a bookseller and, unknown to most around him, the mayor’s immediate choice to deal with anything likely to upset the peace or economic security of the city.
           
The series featuring Dr Adam Bascom, a young gentleman physician caught up in the beginning of the Napoleonic wars, takes place in a variety of locations near the North Norfolk coast. Adam builds a successful medical practice, but his insatiable curiosity and  knack for unravelling intrigue constantly involve him in mysteries large and small.
           
I have spent a good deal of my life travelling in Britain and overseas. Now I am more than content to write stories and run a blog devoted to the world of Georgian England, which you can find at http://www.penandpension.com

A Violet Fire

YA Fantasy/Paranormal
This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Kelsey Quick will be awarding a $25 Amazon/BN GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.

See below to sign up for the GIVEAWAY.






"A vampire tale with a heady mix of defiance and doubt, rebellion and romance." — Kirkus Reviews

"There is not a single dull moment in this book... A Violet Fire has all the ingredients to become the next Hollywood movie about vampires." — Readers' Favorite

"In the Vampire Stratocracy of Cain, human blood is scarce. For centuries, councils have sought to assuage the blood shortage by enslaving and breeding humans, turning them into profitable supply units for the rich and the abled.

Today, eighteen-year-old Wavorly Sterling is officially a supply unit, bound to serve her blood willingly to her master for the rest of her life. One of only few humans that was not bred in Cain, Wavorly knows freedom better than anyone, and she is determined to escape the clutches of her oppressors—despite the allure of forbidden love."

read an excerpt...
He grabs the hair on the back of my neck and pulls down, exposing the breadth. My mind leaps to my years of night terrors; to that vampire from ten years ago; to my mother changing before my eyes into one of the fallen. I nearly forget to breathe while terror floods my veins.

He’s going to turn me into one of them!

“No!  You can’t!” I scream as he lowers his face to the crook of my neck and shoulder, his hot breaths sending chills along my skin—as if each and every inch knows the horror that lies ahead.

“I can,” he says.

My fingers grasp at his immovable arms that have me locked against him. I pull and push with as much might as my hands can muster, to no avail. If I am dirt, he is steel.


AN INTERVIEW WITH KELSEY...
Does this book have a special meaning to you? i.e. where you found the idea, its symbolism, its meaning, who you dedicated it to, what made you want to write it?
This book has a special meaning to me in that I’ve been passionate about the idea for over a decade. I first thought of it while sitting in art class in 9th grade—a freshman in high school! It’s also special to me because without my fanfiction fans, I never would have gathered the confidence to write it. They are the subject of my dedication page, and number one in the acknowledgements section at the back of the book. The meaning, symbolism, and themes came to me while I was drafting. Many of those things were developed based on current issues. I knew my subject matter had to be relevant if I wanted it to stand a chance in such a crowded marketplace.
Where do you get your storylines from?
I imagine every day scenarios happening in my life on a greater and much more coincidental scale. If I can see a beginning and an end within a few moments and it makes me excited enough to think about it more, I put it in the vault with the rest of the ideas.
Was this book easier or more difficult to write than others?  Why?
This was my very first book to write! So, I’m unsure. However, I have found that with other projects I’ve started in the meantime, it is much harder to stay passionate about them than this one. I think A Violet Fire just holds so much sentimental and motivational value that it was easier. In fact, it’s because of this book and so badly wanting it to be published that I would get side-tracked from other projects. I think that’s also the main reason why I didn’t shelve it and work on a new manuscript to query. I needed to get it out into the world so I could focus.
Do you only write one genre?
I thought I would always write fantasy, but I’m finding a couple of contemporary ideas especially enchanting right now. So, no. I guess I don’t! 😊
Give us a picture of where you write, where you compose these words…is it Starbucks, a den, a garden…we want to know your inner sanctum?
It really depends! I hate routine when it comes to doing anything, but I do need a couple of details to be consistent for me to have the best writing experience. Here is a list of things I must have to write no matter what:
1.       Change in scenery — I cannot write in the same place all the time. I’ve been known to write at four different coffee shops, a couple of sports bars, and at my desk. All of them are in a “whatever feels best for my muse right now” rotation.
2.       Drinks — It’s either coffee or wine, but regardless I am usually in a place that serves one of these beverages (if not my own home), and I will always have something to sip on if I’m writing.
3.       Music —I need music to write, and usually I will make playlists that go along with the certain feel or aesthetic of a project. It throws off everything if the music isn’t consistent with the subject matter.
And finally, of course…was there any specific event or circumstance that made you want to be a writer?
When I entered my 24 page manga into an official Japanese contest and received the feedback that I would essentially never be a professional manga artist (which I pretty much knew, I just wanted to try), I assumed that my idea for A Violet Fire would be shelved forever. Then one day in 2015, I had received enough positive reviews and urges to become an author from my first try at fanfiction that I wondered. When I went back and looked at my word count (over 100k words in less than 6 months), my jaw dropped. I never thought I could write that much; I’d always assumed that kind of word count was just outside my realm of possibility. Soon after, I turned to my husband and said, “I wonder if I could turn this vampire idea of mine into a novel…” And that was probably the turning point for me.
