SerissaCoverNew

Serissa-Singing beautifully is more than a defining talent, its Serissa Moore’s destiny, but fame comes with a high price and a responsibility- a price that means questioning everything about life, and a responsibility no human is capable of.

Seventeen-year-old Serissa leaves home after graduation to follow around a new band with her friends. Only she already knows the lead singer, Gabe Livingston, who requests her to sing a duet. Scared of performing, and unsure about trusting the guy who once threw pebbles at her on the playground, she knows she should walk away. But in exchange for one song he promises to explain how she was the only one who saw him glowing during the first show of the tour, and why the polished stone he gifts her soon after transports her into a world she knows too well for having never visited.

Insistent on answers for accumulating odd events, Gabe explains her voice has an unique ability and her musical commitment involves her life, not one song. She also learns her recently acquired boyfriend isn’t who he says he is. Over the summer Serissa will have to overcome stage fright, elude her crazy soon-to-be ex, and hopefully, after figuring out where she is really from, have time to change everything about life as we know it.

Serissa’s Song- With the tour over and summer coming to an end, Serissa accepts her life will never be the same. She returns home with Gabe feeling as though everything around her is in perpetual change, from her mother beginning to date again, to Amber struggling with Rose’s departure. Before having a chance to become comfortable, Dayton and Colby present her with the shortened timeline she’s been given and answers to why it’s time to move forward in her mission. Her move from Kansas City to Chicago to meet with her production company deepens her relationship with Gabe, but only in time to meet with his own mother to learn he has sacrificed more than he realizes to be with her. She knows she has to record her album and do as she is told, but it’s hard when her only friend is on a downward spiral and her boyfriend’s future uncertain. But when Kyle reappears with another murder fresh on his hands, she is no longer willing to be forgiving. Without time on her side, she’ll commit a dose of her own magic in plain sight knowing her unconditional love will be the first of her messages, making her a musical force to be reckoned with.

There comes a time in life you have to let go of who you thought you were and become what you know you can be.


Serissa’s Song, Soon to be Live!

Well, all my lovely readers, turns out things have just gotten REALLY strange around here. I do have some lovely news however, and I’ve also got some lacking news, but it isn’t bad news.

So, I’ll start with the more unfortunate news. I have no idea when we’ll get back to the author’s interviews . We WILL do them, at this point there’s two things that have impeded on our time here. Medical and professional. On my half you should know that the “seasonal” store I work for during the holidays, is now a permanent store. This is great for me, but it does eat away at my time. However, with the major holidays over, and inventory as of this week out of the way, I will have more time for being online and doing things outside of my normal routine, which would be… INTERVIEWS! I’m really excited to get back to this as soon as possible in the next couple of weeks.

As you noticed there was some cool news as for me being employed year round. I only work part time so that makes it a lot easier to reconcile work and hobbies, or other work such a writing!

Now for the great, amazingly tremendous news! Serissa’s Song will drop in the next 24 hours or so on Amazon. Meaning you will be able to get your hands on book two very soon! I’m beyond excited for book two, the end just tears me apart in all the right ways and I can’t keep from reading it. So, to my lovely readers, I’d love to know what you think! Reviews or message me on Facebook, and don’t forget to like the page. Many pleases and thank yous in advance. Get your downloading fingers ready!

Until the book goes live, check out and if possible please share the trailers for  both book one and two!

It has numerous notes about the origin of the characters to the origin of the story. I may also pull up some other fun bits and pieces from quotes to trivia for those who have read the first book already.

Just a Little E-book Marketing.

Competing with thousands of e-books in the same genre is difficult, but I did. I came in #9 on the Top 100 Free downloaded books on Amazon a couple weeks ago. I advertised all over Facebook, Twitter, and a few websites. I intend to stretch that to other free promotion sites my next round, and then again to some paid ones the round after that. Trying different ideas as I go. So far I’m content with my free run. I had nearly 600 downloads in ONE day over five separate countries. I’m not entirely sure how successful that is, however, I have read many authors on their first free runs have that many downloaded over their five days stretch rather than in one day. If that’s the case I did something well. If not, I can only get better.

Review From a New Review & Editing Site

Here is the review I received from a new site, A Tiger’s Tale Edits & Reviews. They are currently accepting submissions for book reviews, and even  editing services. Thanks T!

This is a book about a coming of age girl named Serissa, Sara for short, who has always been on the outside. Until suddenly her entire life is turned upside down.

After Sara and her mom move from a small town to a big city she thinks her life may actually change for once. Four years later it has. She has two best friends and and a boyfriend, the first boy she hasn’t felt awkward around.

Sara’s friends convince her to sing in the senior showcase and with her new boyfriend by her side she reluctantly agrees. Singing in front of people has always terrified her although she’s enjoyed singing quietly in the back of the choir for as long as she can remember.

When Sara’s friends decide to follow a band around the country her world suddenly changes. She finds herself questioning everything she’s ever known, her friends, her boyfriend, and her childhood bully. Who can she trust? Who really has her best interest in mind?

Over the summer, Serissa finds out what her life’s purpose is from the last person she ever expects and has to decide who she’s going to let help her achieve it.

It is well written, the storyline is fresh, and the characters are likeable. Even the bad guys make you believe they’re good.

This book is perfect for teenage girls who don’t feel like they fit in and can’t find their place in the world. It really makes you feel like you are living in her world and you will wonder what will happen next from each page.

That’s just the description to see the whole thing please visit the site and check out their services. Great turn around time! Their Facebook Page.


Need Likes, Follows, and Sharing?

bookcatYou may have seen Book Lovin’ Cat on my Facebook page recently. I saw all these fun advertisements for books, and wanted to contribute one for authors. This is my cat, and this is my graphic. You can borrow him if you like. All I ask in return is you do NOT direct link him. Please download and upload into your own FB photos for use, or upload to your blog, so on and so forth.  A link back to me is nice too, but unnecessary. (click the pic for the full size!)

I need more likes, follows, and shares myself. My numbers have grown quickly, but I need more in order to release my book Serissa for free. Serissa is a Young Adult, Romantic, Paranormal/Fantasy. You can read up on her here on the blog. She is the first in a series which so far has received only 5 Star Reviews!

My stats are as follows and what I’d like to release the book for FREE:

Twitter Follows– 184, I would like 250.

Blog Follows– 10, I would like 25, (you can even follow in email!)

Facebook Page– 53, I would like 150.

Thank you for all the current support and help. I really appreciate it, and I hope to pay everyone back with a free download soon. If you can’t wait and are a Amazon Prime member you can borrow the book for free now!
