'Til Death Do Us Part (Lily Drake Book #2) Guest Post by author T. Michelle Nelson


'Til Death Do Us Part, the 2nd book in the Lily Drake series is set to release in just 3 days! We have author T. Michelle Nelson here as a guest posting about her series inspiration and setting.


From Mount Vernon, Ohio to New Orleans?

I love that I made the setting for the Lily Drake series my hometown. Mount Vernon is a great place with tons of history, but I wanted to mix things up a bit in the newest book. Few places are as historical, over-the-top and exciting as New Orleans.

I take a vacation there every year. From the first moment I set foot in the French Quarter I was in love. Someday I will call New Orleans home. So naturally, it got thrown in the book and really – what better place to have vampires? It’s been done time and time again, but that’s because New Orleans is the type of place you can really imagine anything happening.

My vampires, Rose, Mathias and Valentine are all quite old. Needing a place where they could have had some history centuries ago, yet still be an exciting place for my main character Lily to visit, New Orleans was the perfect locale. The architecture, the people, the food… no place else on earth is quite like NOLA.

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen ~ Giveaway + Book Blast + Kindle Scout Nom

I'm so excited about this! Annette K Larsen hooked me when I first read her YA Fantasy Romance Missing Lily and I'm jazzed to say she has a new release out! Annette's book is also on Kindle Scout. A link is included below to check out the book and nominate her book! Enjoy! ~R



Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen
He's noble. She's common. It's complicated. Kinley is content with her common life until a chance meeting with an old friend—a noble—brings the possibility of love. Though Rylan pursues her with a charming carelessness, she doesn’t dare hope that their relationship will be accepted. When Kinley’s livelihood is threatened, she is thrust into his world as a servant, but the Rylan she encounters there isn’t the quirky friend she thought she knew. Can she trust him, or will she be forced to accept that her dreams are only that—dreams?

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…
