When the past and present collide…

05 - Waiting for Wren Cover reveal and PromotionalWren Cooke has everything she’s ever wanted—a thriving career as one of LA’s top interior designers and a home she loves. Business trips, mockups, and her demanding clientele keep her busy, almost too busy to notice Ethan Cooke Security’s gorgeous Close Protection Agent, Tucker Campbell.

Jaded by love and relationships in general, Wren wants nothing to do with the hazel-eyed stunner and his heart-stopping grins, but Tucker is always in her way. When Wren suddenly finds herself bombarded by a mysterious man’s unwanted affections, she’s forced to turn to Tucker for help.

As Wren’s case turns from disturbing to deadly, Tucker whisks her away to his mountain home in Utah. Haunted by memories and long-ago tragedies, Tucker soon realizes his past and Wren’s present are colliding. With a killer on the loose and time running out, Tucker must discover a madman’s motives before Wren becomes his next victim.

 

The Unofficial Waiting For Wren Soundtrack

As I have discussed with previous book launches, music plays a huge part in my writing process. I typically listen to Pandora or YouTube and compile a collection of songs that I feel represent my characters or the situations they face as the novel unfolds.  Here are a few of the songs that I had on “repeat” while I created Tucker and Wren’s story!

The soundtrack, of sorts, for Waiting For Wren:

  • Gone, Gone, Gone by Phillip Phillips
  • Lego House by Ed Sheeran
  • Wanted by Hunter Hayes
  • What Would Happen If We Kissed by Meredith Brooks
  • Trying Not to Love You by Nickelback
  • Beneath Your Beautiful by Labrinth Ft. Emeli Sande
  • I Hate How Much I Love You by Rhianna Ft. NeYo
  • Be Still by The Fray
  • All Along by Remedy Drive
  • Clarity by Zedd
  • Mirrors by Justin Timberlake
  • To Build A Home by Cinematic Orchestra

Author Interview with Jordyn Meryl

First up on The Page to Page Promo’s Author Interview Series is Jordyn Meryl! Here’s Jordyn’s interview.

Jordyn3

A Little on the Personal Side:

What is your all-time favorite book? The Great Gatsby

What types of books do you read? Mysteries, stories set in the early Egyptian era and the Camelot/Merlin tales.

What do you love most about writing? What do you not like? What I love is seeing a story form and take on a life of its own.  I dislike editing. After allowing well-meaning people to do an edit, I found everyone has a different opinion of “proper grammar”. I just hire a woman. She understands what I want.

Do you have a favorite place to write? In my family room, in front of a blazing fireplace, my dog at my side. I have a very nice writing room, but I don’t write there.

Welcome to Serissa’s Sbooktacular Month Event!

October is one of my all time favorite months, and I love to celebrate Halloween as long as possible. This month on the blog we will host author interviews. I have paired with another blog, AlicenScott.com, to bring these interviews to you through Page to Page Promos. You may join the Facebook group here to self promote your books and book related sites. To submit for the author interview, email: pagetopagepromo@gmail.com

I will be introducing character profiles for Serissa throughout the month. I have been keeping track and profiling them when possible throughout writing the series, and will be pulling these from what I call the guide. 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.

I am holding a contest for Amazon gift cards. I will be opening this up soon on Facebook, so be sure to go to the fan page and like for a chance to win! Contest will run throughout October! Goal is to get around a hundred or more additional likes this month! Please share this one with your friends.

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.
