Happy Writer Wednesday!

As many of you know, I’m an editor and publicist as well as an author–however, due to me being in graduate school I’ve had to seriously cut back on my freelance work. Now that school is out for the summer, I am once again accepting projects. Aaand, I thought I’d offer a sale, too.

If you book your project by May 31, I will take 25% of my basic rates (which can be found here.) If you have a project that doesn’t quite fit inside those guidelines, send me a message and we’ll work something out.

This is a great time to book a larger project, or get moving on that manuscript that’s been gathering dust, either real dust in a drawer, or virtual dust in your hard drive.

I can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on!

WARNING SIGNS by Alexandra Moore
Broken Promises Series #2
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
Release Date: May 10, 2016
— SYNOPSIS —
After spending two years on the run following an assault that nearly took her life, Bea Morrison returns home…
But home isn’t how she left it. Her mother is ailing with dementia and now lives with her brother, Ben. Even Ben isn’t the same. An incredibly famous rock star, he is bitter and angry over Bea’s self-inflicted exile. But Bea can’t explain why she left—it’s impossible to describe what living with PTSD means, and how her life has turned into hell.
But that’s not the only issue that’s kept Bea away for so long…
A deep depression has taken possession of her, to the point that getting out of bed becomes a chore. The relentless paparazzi chasing Ben’s fame only heighten her anxiety. And family secrets are far from dead and buried. It takes just one meeting with an old friend, Splinter Nightingale, to make her path clear—move to Connecticut, attend college, and start an ordinary life.
Her plan for a semi-normal life is going fine—until she meets Professor David Long…
It isn’t long until David shows an interest in Bea, and soon after, interest turns to obsession. Fearing for her safety, Bea sees everything falling to pieces. And right when she finds a way out, she vanishes a second time…and not by choice.
Bea must find something worth fighting for, or she will face death yet again. This time she may not make it back alive…

— ABOUT THE AUTHOR —


My name is Alexandra Moore. I’ve been creating stories since I could talk. I’ve been putting them onto paper since I could write. Writing books is my dream and my passion, alongside with rescuing African Pygmy Hedgehogs, retired race Greyhounds, French Bulldogs, and other various animals I’m probably allergic too. 
I’m convinced I’m the blood of the dragon, and the Mother of Dragons. 
When I’m not watching GoT, I’m watching Grey’s Anatomy (again) on Netflix, and crying over all the MerDer feels. I also spend time with my Boston Terrier Tank and my boyfriend. Both are my cuddle buddies, and I’m afraid the dog is around more often. I don’t bite (unless provoked) so feel free to tweet at me, or leave a comment on one of my InstaPics. I can’t wait until my book is in print, and to share my thoughts with the rest of the world.

Chasing Dreams
Young, gorgeous, and with the voice of an angel, Skyler Jones dreams of becoming a singer…
After the death of her parents in a tragic car accident, there’s nothing to tie twenty-five-year-old Skyler to the East Coast. But if she’s learned one thing, it’s that life is short. So with aspirations of landing a record deal, she moves to the land of champagne wishes and caviar dreams.
Sexy, rich, and wildly successful, Logan Michaels’ club is the hottest nightspot in Los Angeles…
While at his club, Logan spots a stunning woman ordering a drink. In L.A., beautiful women are a dime a dozen, but this one’s different—and so is their connection. He’s never been so infatuated, and he’s determined to know more about the striking stranger. After pulling some strings, he finds out where she works and asks her to dinner.
They find more than love—they find opportunity…
After a few dates, Logan convinces Skyler to perform at his club. But when Skyler dances with one of Logan’s connections, he’s unable to contain his explosive jealousy. However, his major screw-up with Skyler is the least of his problems. When a scorned ex-employee seeks revenge in the most deadly of ways, it puts both himself and Skyler’s life in danger.
Will Logan be able to protect Skyler from the growing threat?
Or will she run…and write off this chapter of her life as chasing dreams?

Authors need lots of things that are rather specific to their work: space and time to write, trusted critique partners, and a steady supply of whiskey, to name a few. Okay, perhaps the whiskey isn’t a necessity, but it sure does take the edge off line edits. Something else authors need are people willing and able to review their work.

Let’s talk about these reviews for a moment. You know how at your place of employment your supervisor will set up a meeting, and discuss the quality of your work? NO ONE likes those reviews; well, maybe some sadists enjoy them, but for most looking at the black and white results of your efforts is nausea inducing. Yet authors solicit reviews, actively and often.

Does that make authors masochists? Not really. You see, authors only get paid when a book sells, and the best way to sell any book is based on reviews. Don’t believe me? Go have a look at your favorite online retailer, or some of the larger library systems. The top selling titles are always accompanied by reviews. Some titles have reviews in the tens of thousands.

So yes, that means you could have hundreds or even thousands of mini book reports out there, all based on your work. See why I mentioned whiskey earlier?

Speaking of reviews, I’m sure ya’ll know that I have a new release out: The Virgin Queen, the second installment of The Chronicles of Parthalan. And–surprise!–it could use a few reviews. Now, I know that it takes time and effort to read and review a book, so I thought I’d offer something to sweeten the pot. Post your review and enter via the Rafflecopter form below, and you’ll be entered to win a $10 gift card either to Amazon, or the independent bookstore of your choice.

If you’ve already got a copy of The Virgin Queen, thank you! If you need one, you can get it here. If you decide to review (and THANK YOU in advance for that) don’t forget to come back and enter the raffle! Good luck!

virgin_queen_final-draft_text2A broken queen. A friendship mired in deceit. Can one man from the desert help hold the realm together?

Asherah, Queen of Parthalan and Lady of Tingu, has led her people through eight centuries of prosperity. That peace shatters when Mersgoth, the mordeth thought long dead, attacks Teg’urnan. In the aftermath a new warrior emerges: Aeolmar, a man as secretive as he is deadly.

Asherah and Aeolmar race across Parthalan in pursuit of Mersgoth, and track the beast to the High Desert. While they’re gone, Harek, now Prelate of Parthalan, conspires with the Dark Fae against the elves…Against Leran, the king of the elves and Asherah’s son in all but blood. Will Asherah see the truth of Harek before it’s too late, or will he bring down the fae once and for all?
