Now, on to the good stuff! How can it get any better than winning an ereader? Well, getting a look at the book that started this awesome giveaway of course! First, let's set the mood...
I think this song fits so well for the whole book. If you have read it - do you hear it? I can hear Brady singing it to Karis lol. I listened to this song while writing Ageless Sea and it is on my playlist over on Spotify, should you want to listen to the whole "soundtrack" I used. Can you pick out any songs for certain scenes???
While writing Ageless Sea I didn't sleep much, my keyboard became my pillow. From beginning to end, my characters kept me on my toes. They changed into amazing people that I am happy to share with you. Ageless Sea started off with a dream I had in the middle of the night. I remember rolling over and grabbing my phone to take notes because it was perfect and since then I haven't been able to get Karis or Brady too far out of my mind. One thing I didn't realize until I started writing, was that Brady was funny. I laughed out loud many times while writing and my family would look at me with that 'she's losing it' look and move on. Here is a part of one of the first scenes where he shows his humorous side:
“What is that?”
Karis looked up from the fire with a scowl. “Dinner. What did you think it was?”
“Oh no, I’m not eating that, that thing.” Brady pointed at the sea urchin she held in her hands.
She let her shoulders droop. “We don’t eat the whole thing, just this part.” She dangled a small portion of it with her fingers.
“Oh hell no!” He held his hands up. “I won’t eat Rocky Mountain Oysters, what makes you think I’d eat them off a sea creature.” He placed a hand over his mouth. “I think I’m gonna be sick.”
She laughed. It never crossed her mind that eating that part of the urchin would be distasteful to him. She’d eaten them for so long it was like second nature.
Karis shrugged. “We could go fishing if you prefer?”
“Yes, I prefer.” He glanced at the urchin one more time and cringed. “Can you please just toss it out or something? I can’t believe you eat those.”
Karis rolled her eyes at him. “For such a strong guy, you’re sure weak.” She picked up the basket of urchins and laid them aside. “So are you fishing or am I?”
He grabbed the fishing basket and started down the trail. “I think I can figure it out.”
I love to write fantasy, so it was fun to create the world's inside this book. Romance with fantasy, that is my favorite, so that is what I did. I can't tell you how much you all mean to me. I love that you enjoy my stories as much as I do and how excited you get with your favorite characters... or sometimes even the messages about how you lost sleep because you couldn't put the my book down, makes me happy. I love hearing from all of you and can't thank you enough. I really hope you love Karis and Brady and their journey as much as I do!

SUPA GIVEAWAYa Rafflecopter giveaway
Karis has been forever banished from her home for a crime she did not commit. She is isolated on an island alone, with no way for anyone to access the island for those that do try to gain access to this mysterious island dies while trying. That is until one day there is a plane wreck and there is a survivor, a man named Brady. From the moment she finds Brady, there is something about him that she just doesn't understand and he is thrown into a situation that he has no idea what to believe.
It is then that Karis learns that things are happening in her home land, one that she was mean to rule as Queen that only she and Brady can stop from happening.
Right from the beginning, I was drawn in to Karis' story and the mystery around why Brady was the individual that was able to break through the wards of the island and find Karis. Throughout the story both Karis and Brady face so much but together they learn that they are meant to be together and this helps them in overcoming anything this placed in their path. I absolutely loved the story and how everything moved right along. I found myself not wanting to stop reading and was very sad to see the story end. M.R. Polish laid the story line out perfectly and you couldn't help but find yourself swallowed up in the story and imagining yourself there.
