Welcome Today's Featured Author

An Impossible World



My new release, AN IMPOSSIBLE WORLD, is being described as a “fast-paced”, “emotional read” that is grabbing the attention of readers who don’t normally read dystopian romance with its “unique”, “well-written” storyline.
Fear. Love. Revenge. Strength ... all come together in this epic tale of fate and survival.


 Blurb:
What would happen if terrorism spread and hate took over? What would the world become?

Isabella (Belle) Grey trained her entire adult life to protect those around her––training that would prove invaluable in her quest to make a new life. Forced to live in an impossible world, terror was not only outside the walls of her protected community but also raged behind the walls of her very own home.

No longer willing to put up with her husband’s drunken abuse, Belle made the desperate decision to run away from the safety of her community and escaped alone into the broken world beyond.

Chased by death as bombs exploded in the distance, her next decision could not only save her life but could potentially bring light back into her darkened soul.

When faced with the impossible, Belle found strength in an unsuspecting stranger who set her path in a new direction––one she never considered.

Fear. Love. Revenge. Strength ... all come together in this epic tale of fate and survival.

 Interview With S.P. Cervantes:
1. Can you tell us a little about your books?  
 I currently have eight cross-genre romance novels published.  I LOVE writing romance, but also love the dystopian and fantasy genres, and had to branch out a few times to really let my creativity soar.  My current novel, AN IMPOSSIBLE WORLD, is a dystopian romance, that is very fast paced and focuses on navigating life in a world that is falling apart.  Many people have said that even though they’re not necessarily dystopian fans, they loved AN IMPOSSIBLE WORLD because its plot was filled with romance.
 
2. What inspires you to write?  
 Many things inspire my books, but nothing more than music.  I love to listen to music when I run, and most of my ideas come from listening to music as I let my thoughts drift to anything but the fact that I’m exercising LOL.

3. Do you have a favorite spot to write?  
 I mainly do my writing in my room, where I can hide away from my kids.  I have a beautiful office downstairs, but somehow always find myself hiding away in the privacy of my room, where there aren’t as many distractions from my three adorable, but loud kiddos.
 

4. Do you have any “odd” writing habits?   
A not so odd thing about my writing habits is that I always need to have Diet Coke, Doritos (or some chip) and some sort of chocolate treat.  I’m an absolute snacker while I write…hence the reason for running. 
 
5. Do you listen to music while you write?  
 I absolutely listen to music while I write.  I like to make a playlist that fits the mood of my story to inspire me.  During AN IMPOSSIBLE WORLD, I listened to a lot of Imagine Dragons and James Arthur. I’m currently working on a new novel and am actually naming each chapter after the song that I feel will make the perfect soundtrack for the book.

6. Do you have a favorite character to write about?   
That’s like asking my favorite child! LOL.  I love all of my characters, but when writing AN IMPOSSIBLE WORLD, I worked very hard to develop characters that were conflicted, but mature and strong.  It was a challenge given the situation they were all put in, and I found myself falling equally in love with Keagan and Christian. 
 
7. What are writing projects are you currently working on? 
 As I said above, I’m currently working on a contemporary romance that’s called The Worst of Me. It’s definitely the most angsty book I’ve written, and as you can tell from the title, while it has an HEA, it is about a woman’s journey through love, loss, and finding the best in yourself.
 
8. Are you attending any Author Signing Event this year? 

 Yes! Currently I’m attending the Wunderlust Los Angeles Event next June, but am hoping to get to some more before that.

9.     If you were a super-hero, what powers would you have?   

      I would love to have the ability to fly.  I HATE to fly on airplanes…like hate hate hate.  I don’t like that word, but that’s the only word to describe how I feel weeks before I get on that plane.  So if I’m at a signing anywhere other than Southern California, you should know we need to get a glass of wine together, because I’ll most likely be internally freaking out about having to get on a plane again.

Blurb

On a dark, rainy night I drove my overstuffed junker car back to a town I never expected to see again.

And when I needed a rescue by the side of the road, a six-foot tall piece of hot, unfinished business named Mark was what the universe sent me.

Three years earlier I’d fled town (and Mark) to follow my wrongly-convicted father to his federal prison, working crappy jobs to stay afloat and visit him every second I could. But now Dad’s dead and I’m mysteriously offered the best job of my life at the college where his life blew up when he was accused of a crime he didn’t commit.

Someone wants me here. Desperately.

I’m hoping it’s Mark.

Because if it’s not, I’m in more danger than I ever imagined.

And if it is?

Mark may be the most dangerous choice of all.

Excerpt

Life is divided into two parts now: Before and After.

As I literally peel my wet clothes off, my fingers touch my arms where Mark’s hands have just been. I close my eyes and imagine him standing before me. My t-shirt sticks to my breasts and I edge my fingers over the v-neck. The slide of wet cloth against my nipples reminds me of his mouth. We’d gone nice and slow, four years ago, when we started dating. His mouth only roamed from mine in the last intimate moment we’d had before he... 

Before.

A long, slow sigh fills me. I forget to exhale. My jeans put up a battle in my undressing, catching at the ankles. I fall and grab the tub’s edge. My butt tumbles onto the thick little bathroom area rug. The color is a princess pink that reminds me of my old bedroom. When I was little, living with Dad and when my mother was still alive.

That’s like double Before.

Frustration fills me as the feel of Mark’s arms around me on the wet side of the road twists in my mind. My body is on fire now, even when it’s wet and cold.

He had to be the first person I saw, didn’t he? Why? I don’t believe in fate. I don’t believe in destiny. I don’t believe in soulmates.

Pain? That I can believe in. Betrayal and deception and lies are real, too. 

Fate is just another lie.

Blog Tour for Single Dad's Waitress by Amelia Wilde




Title: Single Dad's Waitress 
Author: Amelia Wilde 
Genre: Romance 











He’ll give her more than just the tip.



Ryder

I’m not looking for love.

I’ve been screwed over before, and it was the mother of all disasters. The only silver lining? My cute-as-hell daughter, Minnie.

So my only goal when I have to live in Lakewood for the summer is to get in, get back on my feet, and get out of this godforsaken small town with its cutesy cafés and too-nice charm. 

Until I meet Valentine, the waitress at the Short Stack diner.

She’s over-the-top gorgeous, with a body that makes me want to have her for breakfast. And when she sprays me in the face with whipped cream, her pink cheeks start to melt my frigid heart.

I can’t let her get to me. A scorching summer fling, sure…but that’s all my life can handle.

Once fall comes, we’re over.

Valentine

Waitressing is my job of last resort. So here I am, right at rock bottom.

Dumped by my ex? Check. Back in my hometown? Double check. Making a fool of myself in front of the sexiest stranger I’ve ever seen? Nailed it.

Ryder is the kind of guy I can never have. He’s sinfully sexy…and a single dad. There’s no room for me in a life like his.

Besides, come fall, I’m leaving this place behind forever.

The tension between us has to stop. I just have to get it out of my system, because he’s too hot not to touch, and neither of us needs this.

If only someone could remind me of that whenever he smiles at me…

Single Dad’s Waitressis a steamy, sweet single dad romance with adult language, no cheating, laugh-out-loud scenes, and an HEA that will melt your heart.
