Deception - A Note To Readers

With Deception's release coming up in just a few weeks, I wanted to talk to you guys about this book, and this series, as a whole.

As I've said many times, Deception is very different from other books I've published. Deception started as a random thought and morphed into something I never expected.

I see a lot of people talking about characters that drive them nuts because they are weak. I can understand their aggravation as I have felt it too while reading a book. I always wonder why characters make the decisions they make.

With that being said, I felt the need to give my readers a heads up before they start reading Deception.

Claire is weak. She tends to make extremely bad decisions and overlooks things she shouldn't.

At the beginning of Deception, I have included the following note:

A note to readers:
Before you start reading Deception, I want to make you aware of
 
something. Claire can be a bit ignorant at times. As a young woman
who has never really had a role model to help her learn and grow into
an adult, she can be very naive. She also has a habit of making
choices that will definitely make her seem weak and, at times,
annoying. Please remember that as a series moves forward, the
characters often grow and evolve. Claire is most certainly one of
those characters.
With that being said, I hope you learn to love Claire as I have. She is
one of the most diverse characters I’ve ever written, and I can’t wait
to show you what I have in store for her.
Lots of hugs,
K.A.

I wanted my readers to understand that I wrote her that way intentionally. Claire has so much potential and I intend to push her to her limits and watch as she grows into someone she never thought she could be.

Deception is a two book series. When this series finishes, I want you to be able to look back and see the change in her. I want you to watch her grow, take control and become the person she is capable of being. I want her to feel strong and in control.

Claire, Robert, and Cooper are some of the most infuriating and uncontrollable characters I've ever worked with. Telling their story is harder than I thought it would be. They've all thrown me for a loop, but I love them for that. Their story is going to become so much more than I ever thought it could be.

Now, I don't want to cause any spoilers before the book is even released, so that's all I'm going to say for now.

I sincerely hope you enjoy Deception! Only 21 days to go!

Torn #5 (Amber and Adam) announcement!

For the last few weeks, I've mentioned Adam and Amber's book over and over, teasing you guys. I haven't given you anything besides a few teasers. No release date, title, description... nothing.
 
I wanted to wait until I finished writing the book before I decided when to release it. I was hoping I could release it by the end of this year, but I wanted to make sure it was possible. I didn't want to disappoint you guys.
 
I can finally give you all some information on the book! I'm so excited to give you Amber and Adam's story. They are two of the my favorite characters in the Torn series.
 
I do want to point out one thing real quick before I give you any information - Adam and Amber's relationship time frame follows Chloe and Drake's very closely because the only time they are together is when Chloe and Drake are around each other. So, even though this is most definitely a brand new book focusing on Amber and Adam, you will still see a lot of Chloe, Drake, and Logan. Some scenes are new, but others are scenes from Torn, Twisted, Tainted, and Toxic told from another POV.
 
With that being said, you can still read this book without reading the others.
 
Okay, I'll shut up now and give you some information on this book!
 
Title: Tamed
 
Release Date: November 4th, 2014
 
Description: ***Book five of the Torn Series, but this novel can be read as a standalone***

Mistakes—my life has been full of them. Time and time again, I’ve tried to change, tried to make the right choices, but it doesn’t matter. I always screw up.

I hoped that Adam would be different, that he wouldn’t be a mistake. Our relationship was supposed to be about sex and nothing more.

Fun, easy, simple—that was what we wanted.

But things are never simple, not for me.

Adam changed me. He made me the person I am today. I hate who I am and what I’ve become. I'm not proud of the things I've done.

I thought my greatest mistake would be falling in love with him.

I was wrong.

My greatest mistake is much, much worse.

I’ve lost control.

I have a secret I can’t hide.

It’s going to destroy everything.


My name is Amber, and this is my story.

I am not going to release the cover just yet on this one. I want to wait until we're a little closer to release date to do that. (I still have to focus on getting Deception ready to go on October 3rd.)

Even though I'm not going to reveal the cover just yet, I will give you guys a little teaser of it.

.99 cent sale!




Breaking Alexandria is on sale!

This week only - Breaking Alexandria is on sale for .99 cents on Amazon and Nook!



***Out of 132 reviews on Amazon and Nook, 126 are four and five stars!***
Breaking Alexandria is by far my favorite book that I have published so far. Writing BA was extremely hard for me to do, but also very fulfilling. If you haven't read Breaking Alexandria, I am pretty much begging you to give it a chance.  I hope you love it as much as I do. Lexi, Joel, and Landon wormed their way into my heart like no other.

Also, I would love to hear your thoughts on it after you finish! And reviews on Amazon and Nook are always appreciated! They help authors so much. Even a few sentences is enough! :)

(Amazon has already dropped the price. Nook should be changing over at any time!)

A true Rock N' Roll giveaway!

As most of you know, I'm a hardcore rock n' roll junkie. Anything rock or metal and I'm good to go. I thought it would be cool to have a giveaway with nothing but rock in it!  I contacted a few of my author friends with rock star books to see if they would want to donate a signed paperback to the giveaway.

But I wanted to do something more than just books. I wanted to do a REAL rock giveaway. So, I contacted a couple of bands I'm acquainted with and asked if they could donate something. They did!

This giveaway isn't just signed paperbacks. I also have SIGNED posters from Smile Empty Soul (the lyrics to Mechanical Rationality are in Breaking Alexandria) and Dieuponaday!

Signed paperbacks from some seriously awesome authors.
Signed posters from two seriously cool bands.

Who's excited??? I know I am.

Below is the rafflecopter to enter. One winner takes all.

I'll announce the winner at the beginning of September. Good luck!!!!

Xoxo,
K

Rebecca is the good girl. She doesn’t have time to think about a normal social life—let alone, her nonexistent love life. Fresh out of college, she moves into her very first apartment. Her safe world explodes when she meets her new neighbor, Alec. Tattooed, pierced, and with a body to kill, he’s every woman’s wet dream. Too bad he’s arrogant beyond belief. Rebecca instantly hates him. Unfortunately, her body doesn’t agree.

When Rebecca’s best friend, Arie, comes up with a plan to put Alec in his place, Rebecca jumps at the chance. Their plan is perfect—except neither of them counted on Rebecca falling for Alec when she sees another side to him.

Caught somewhere between lust and hate, Alec and Rebecca each fight against their own emotions. Will Rebecca walk away? Or will she be able to tame Alec and his wild ways?
