Name: Amy

I’m 29. I was born in Oregon. I have an older sister and brother, I am the baby of my family. I have a bachelor’s degree in Criminology/Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology and an emphasis in forensics. When I’m not reading or working I enjoy baking.


BOOKSTAGRAM

Logo name? The Little Bookworm

Logo picture, if you have to available? My gorgeous logo was created for me by my book bestie ❤

How/Why did you come up with it? Honestly, I don’t even remember how I came up with it. I think it was just the first thing that popped into my head and I ran with it.

When did you start Bookstagramming? What was the first thing you did? I started the middle of 2018.  I started with just posting anything book related from meme’s, to just random images of books.

Why did you start what you started? Influence? I was following a few authors on my personal Instagram account and just thought it would be nice to have something purely book related to share my love of books and connect with other readers.

Did you have any help at the beginning or winged it? I had no help at the beginning. I just started following other bookstagram accounts and saw what they were doing and just find of found my own thing. It was trial and error for me. Of course, I met some AMAZING people along the way.

What is your favorite part you would say and why? The people! The romance book community is AMAZING. Everyone is so friendly, welcoming and supportive. I love it!

What platforms do you use (for things like posts on any fo the social media’s? Or at least your favorite ones? I don’t use any. I pretty much just post on Instagram and it is linked to my blog facebook page, but I don’t use any third party platforms for social media posts. It might make my life easier if I did. haha

What social media’s are you on? And do you have a favorite? Instagram, Facebook, Twitter. I would say Instagram is my favorite to use and the one that I use the most.

 Do you have any tips and tricks about blogging? Just be consistent with posting, that’s where I struggled and just get your blog link and blog name out there by posting about it everywhere.

Have you had any bad/negative experiences on Bookstagram?  I haven’t, well, other than a few creeps sliding into my DM’s but when it comes to the bookstagram community I have not.  

What have you learned from blogging on a public platform like? I don’t know if I have truly learned anything as of yet. I’m still trying to figure it out myself. I know when I first created my blog and started I wasn’t consistent with posting but I have gotten much better at it over time.

Do you have any goals that you haven’t yet been able to get to, concerning your account? None that come into my mind. I would love to be able to spend more time on it, but unfortunately, it is difficult with working a full time job.

What are some highlights or special moments that have happened, concerning your book blogging career? Meeting my book bestie is one! She’s been there from almost the beginning and honestly has been so helpful throughout this wild ride. Also, having some of your favorite authors interact with you is amazing and I will never stop freaking out when they follow me back or being able to talk to them about their books. It is such an amazing feeling.

Do you think Bookstagram is an effective platform to express your opinion on books?  I do! Unless you have a lot to say since you are limited on space, but it is pretty easy to direct other people to your blog, goodreads or wherever else you may post a review.

What do you use camera vise when taking book photography? I use my Iphone 8 plus for my pictures, so nothing fancy!

Do you use your own props? Is there a fun or MAGICAL way you set it all up? (loc, props…) I use my own props. I usually just take pictures around my apartment, pretty much where I can find the best natural lighting.

Do you have advice for new bookstagrammers on how to start, be, and do? Just be yourself! Don’t worry about what other people are doing, how their pictures look, how many followers they have. Just do what makes you happy, post what you enjoy and just interact with your followers. You will find something that works for you and that’s what truly matters. No one is going to judge you.


LET’S TALK BOOKS

Tell us, do you know the exact amount of paperback you own? How about ebooks? (I suggest not to count because I did & I regretted it) Because you said not to count I will….just kidding, I don’t have that amount of time! Paperbacks I have probably 200 ish and growing. Moving half away across the country I got ride of a ton of stuff and so I’m building up my collection again. Ebooks I have about 1500 currently on my kindle, most of those are unread but eventually I’ll read them all.

Do you prefer paper or kindle? Kindle, mostly because I have all my ARCS on mine, but nothing beats holding a paperback in your hand.

Do you know your first paperback/ebook? I have no idea on my first paperback, but the first ebook I purchased myself was The Davinci Code by Dan Brown.

Do you remember your very first read? No idea, but the very first book series I remember reading is The Shadow Children series by Margaret Peterson Haddix.

What is it that draws you to a book? (picture, blurb, author..or all?) Author and cover. I like to go into books without reading blurbs 98% of the time because I love the surprise. Though, if the author is new to me I will check out the blurb.

Do you have a favorite genre you read? And which one? Romance, obviously. But I also enjoy true crime. I feel like that is such an odd combination but I am little weird.

What is your favorite part about a story? (the beginning get to know each other, the sexy scenes, the middle right before the peak…) I think we all love the sexy scenes, but besides that I always love the beginning of books. Its where I get hooked to the story and fall in love with the characters as they are getting to know each other.

Now, the real important question -> What is your favorite book & why! THIS IS THE WORST QUESTION EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have so many favorites and don’t even know how to answer this question. I feel like I need to line up all my favorites, close my eyes and just pick one of them. Okay, this this was a tough choice for me but if I just picked a random one from my pile of favorites and it is Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren. I have read this one many times and I never get tired of Bennett and Chloe. To this day they will always be one of my favorite book couples and Bennett will always be one of my top book boyfriends.


Do you have any magical words for everyone out there?! Just be yourself, have fun, do whatever you want to do!

The Guide To Romance Novels -> This will forever be my favorite photo Amy has taken. This is the level I want to be at, at her age! #doingitright

Blurb

Don’t mix business and pleasure. Simple. Until it isn’t.

Ellis Worthington has something I need, and I refuse to be intimidated by his demanding reputation. I can barely stand him, but I need a job. I make my living tackling other people’s problems. The bigger the scandal, the more I want in—at least until I’m the center of the scandal. Now, I need Ellis and his mess to redeem myself. 

My first challenge is convincing him to take me on. The second is ignoring the relentless attraction between us. But the biggest challenge? The more time I spend with him, the more I wonder if crossing that invisible line is worth risking everything.

RELEASE BOOST – Fluffy by Julia Kent




Title: Fluffy
Author: Julia Kent
Genre: Romantic Comedy/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 30, 2019



Blurb

An all-new STANDALONE from New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent

It all started with the wrong Help Wanted ad. Of course it did.
I’m a professional fluffer. It’s NOT what you think. I stage homes for a living. Real estate agents love me, and my work stands on its own merits.
Sigh. Get your mind out of the gutter. Go ahead. Laugh. I’ll wait.
See? That’s the problem. My career has used the term “fluffer” for decades. I didn’t even know there was a more… lascivious definition of the term.
Until it was too late.
The ad for a “professional fluffer” on Craigslist seemed like divine intervention. My last unemployment check was in the bank. I was desperate. Rent was due. The ad said cash paid at the end of the day.
The perfect job!
Staging homes means showing your best angle. The same principle applies in making a certain kind of movie. Turns out a “fluffer” doesn’t arrange decorative pillows on a couch.
They arrange other soft, round-ish objects.
The job isn’t hard. Er, I mean, it is — it’s about being hard. Or, well… helping other people to be hard.
Oh, man…
And that’s the other problem. A man. No, not one of the stars on the movie set. Will Lotham – my high school crush. The owner of the house where we’re filming. Illegally. In a vacation rental.
By the time the cops show up, what I thought was just a great house staging gig turned into a nightmare involving pictures of me with a naked star, Will rescuing me from an arrest, and a humiliating lesson in my own naivete.
My job turned out to be so much harder than I expected. But you know what’s easier than I ever imagined?
Having all my dreams come true.

Excerpt

“I can’t tonight. I have a date,” I blurt out, remembering David. The dating app. The asshole who isn’t an asshole.

Yet. I haven’t met him, so that judgment remains withheld.

“A date?” Will asks, intrigued.

“Yes. A date. You know, that thing where you go out with someone who has no intention of really getting to know you and you spend the entire time eating bread that doesn’t taste as good as your date claims and trying to decide whether to initiate rescue-text sequences with your mom.”

“That’s your idea of a date?”

“That is my actual experience of every date I’ve had since college.”

“You’re dating the wrong guys.” He holds my gaze for just a little too long. I look away.

“I have to keep fishing in the pond if I ever want to catch a different one.”

“If that’s the way you talk to your dates, I am beginning to understand why they all turn out so badly.”

“Hey!”

“What?”

“Don’t accuse me of being a bad date. I’m a great date! I Google the guy in advance and read his LinkedIn profile. I make sure I don’t wear super-tall heels in case he lied about his height on his dating profile. I pretend to care about all his hobbies and don’t reveal that I’m secretly tallying all the micro-aggressions he’s sending my way during appetizers and wine. And if he makes it to dessert, well–” I falter.

“You never make it to dessert, do you?” Will asks, eyebrows up. He drops them quickly, wincing.

“I–well–it’s not that I don’t. He doesn’t!”

“He ditches you?”

“No! No! It’s just that he always has a thing.”

“A thing?”

“A work emergency. Or a dog with a twisted bowel. Or a grandma in the ER.”

“How many guys used the twisted-canine-intestine thing?”

“Three.” I sit down and sag against his teenage desk, elbows sliding forward, fingers deep in my hair. “I looked it up. There’s an entire subreddit devoted to inventive ways to get out of a bad date.”

“And yet here you are.” He leans against the edge of his desk. “Trying again.”

“I’m a masochist.”

His eyes gleam. “Maybe you should start your dates with that line. ‘Hi. I’m Mallory Monahan. I’m a masochist.’ You’d definitely make it to dessert.”

Get your hot read on!


The Collection


#1 Keeping Her Close

Black Rousseau has honored the code and kept his distance from the one thing in this world that means something to him. But things are about to change. Black’s just received the blessing he’s been waiting for since the moment he set eyes on his boss’ daughter.

Book One in the CAN’T WAIT series of standalones.

Growing up in the biker bar her father owned, Roxie Lear dreams of getting out of Hell, Michigan. The only other thing she’s always wanted is Black Rousseau. But he treats her like she doesn’t exist. Until the day her father goes to prison, that is. And Black lets her know what’s been boiling behind his cool indifference all these years.

Will Black’s preparations to claim Roxie once and for all be too much for her? Will the darkness inside of him frighten away the only thing in this world he’s ever needed?

Author note: This alpha is a little dark and a bit brutal but he cherishes what is his. As always, this story is safe/no cheating with the perfect happy ending. Strap on your wrist cuffs and your safe word, this hot quickie of a smutty read will have you questioning your morals and wiggling in your seat. 


#2 Back to Her

Going to prison and taking the fall was my gift to Mia. How was I to know her father would disappear with her and I would lose her forever? After serving my five years I’m finally out, but bars or no bars, I’m still in hell.

Book Two in the CAN’T WAIT standalone series.

I never believed in miracles until today. Because I’ve found her. All plush softness, sorrowful eyes and lips that call to be kissed. She’s right here in the same place I’d met her all those years ago when she was too young. Before I could touch her.

There is no force on heaven or earth that will take her from me again. No force that will keep my hands off her now. I will take her. I will do as I please with her because she is mine. Now and forever. God help us both.

Author’s Note: Take five years waiting for her to be legal. Then another five locked up in prison and you’ve got one powder keg of alpha naughtiness waiting to explode. This love at the speed of light novella will warm your heart and your nether regions. All you expect…safe, smutty, swoony and happily ever after.


#3 Let Go

Rockstar. Actor. Entrepreneur. I’m Lachlan Marcus, and I just walked out on my empire. I bought a ball cap and a pair of cheap sunglasses and took the first bus leaving the station.

I landed in a small town looking straight into the eyes of an angel with auburn curls and curves that bring to life my inner barbarian, determined to make her mine. She’s naïve, yet wise, and sees directly into my soul like no one ever before.

Within twenty-four hours, I’ve got her inside the wedding chapel and my last name attached to her.

Only she has no idea who I really am. I represent everything in this world she’s been taught to distrust.
The life I left has come calling, and I’m losing her before our life together can even begin.

Author’s Note: This famous hero hasn’t touched a woman in longer than he can remember, and she’s never been kissed. They don’t waste any time heating up the pages and making up for what they’ve been missing. This super-fast steamy read is safe, no cheating and has the best kind of happy ending.

Book Three in the CAN’T WAIT standalone series.


#4 Our Turn

NEW & AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY IN THIS COLLECTION!!

She didn’t think I saw her. Hiding behind her ball cap and baggy clothes, but Jesus, did I see her.  I’ve followed her, spied on her, stalked her. 

See, I’m not a good guy.  I’ve never wanted anyone in my life except my clients.  The only people in my life take from me and I take back with forty-percent on top and maybe a few broken fingers.

With one phone call everything changes.  The shy, kind beauty I’ve set my sights on can never be mine.  Not in the way I’ve imagined every night for half a year.  How will I ever look her in those silver eyes and not think of taking her in all the filthy ways I’ve imagined?  It’s wrong.  So very wrong.

Only things aren’t what they seem.  Fate opens the door, and I’m not just going to walk through; I’m doing to kick it down.  When she finds out who I am− what I am− it may all be over anyway. Until then, I’m chasing down what’s mine, even if it’s wrong.

Author’s Note:  It’s the most taboo sort of misunderstanding but makes these two struggle to come to terms with what they are feeling.  It’s fast, hard, and all the best sort of smutty. So, sit back, suspend reality, and take a happily ever after ride. Safe, no cheating, and all the usual naughtiness you expect.  And, just for the record, no one is actually related, it’s all on the up and up.

Author Bio


Dani Wyatt used to feel bad about having such dirty thoughts. Luckily, one day she decided to start writing them down. Her uber alpha heros have a wicked possessive streak and an insatiable libido. Her heroines are intelligent, quirky and worry about having too much muffin top. With her books, you can count on a heaping helping of HOT, a dash of rough and always a happily ever after.

When she’s not writing (which is not often) she is probably laughing about some irony (like A-1 Steak Sauce is vegan), riding her horse, wondering why The Walking Dead can’t have a new episode every night, or looking cross-eyed at some piece of technology sent to ruin her day.

Cover Reveal: PARENTAL GUIDANCE by Avery Flynn

Parental Guidance, an all-new, sexy and LOL romantic comedy from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Avery Flynn, is coming June 17th and we have the adorable new cover!

ParentalGuidance_1600.jpg

All I want is to play hockey on the Ice Knights, instead, I’m in a viral video for all the wrong reasons and my mom—yes, my mom—has taken over my dating apps. Then, when I think it can’t get any worse, the fates deliver Zara Ambrose, a five-feet-nothing redhead with more freckles than inches and who’d rather be anywhere other than on a date with me.

Now a bet with her friends and my PR nightmare have us both stuck in this go-on-five-dates-with-the-same-person hell situation. But if we band together, we can get the whole thing over with and go on with our lives. It’s perfect! No feelings. No future. No fuc— *ahem* fun. No naked fun.

What could go wrong? Nothing—as long as I remember the rules. Don’t notice the way she looks in a dress. Don’t react when she does that little shivery sigh thing whenever we touch. Don’t think about the fact that she’s never had a toe-curling orgasm that wasn’t self-delivered and just how badly I want to change that.

Five dates—that’s it—and then we go our separate ways. At least, that was the plan.

About Avery

USA Today bestselling romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip. She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staff knew her by name. Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs. AveryFlynn.jpg

Book Link:  https://amzn.to/2Uvuq1g

Synopsis:

Given to The Grimm Order as an infant, Fawn was raised in a world shaped by the rich and powerful. When she was sold at the age of nine to a Suitor, Fawn believed he would protect her from the “Mainworld”, where those who know nothing about the Order live. Living with the cruel man who bought her freedom, she finds just what the Order is about: money, control, and status for the Owner and humiliation and abuse for those they own. 
Unwilling to accept the expectations of being Owned, Fawn goes from golden girl to maid, content to live in the shadows of the Order as long as she isn’t Owned again.It’s been ten years since she disgraced her former Owner’s name, and now the brooding Frenchman Elliot Lyon wants her. Master Lyon is kind, smart, and unlike any man she’s met. She doesn’t want to admit it to herself, but Fawn is drawn to him despite constantly planning her next escape. Even the prettiest flowers have thorns, and Master Lyon is hiding secrets that will uproot everything she thinks she knows about him.

Wilt (The Order, 2)Page Count: 231
Release Date: June 30, 2018Book Link:  https://amzn.to/2LR2Wfc

Synopsis:When she was sold to Master Elliot Lyon of House Chimera, Fawn could have never imagined he was the same person as Elliot, the man beneath a well placed mask. A victim. Just like her. She would have never thought he was grooming her for the Wolf she’d already escaped once. That he planned to deliver her to the beast’s jaws in exchange for his wife. Master Jäger will stop at nothing to have her—even if that means using others as collateral. With more than just their lives on the line, Fawn must become someone else, and Master Lyon distances himself further from Elliot as her transfer looms. The roots of the Order run deep within them, but Fawn is beginning to realize another bond has formed between her and her Owner, a man she vowed to destroy along with the rest of their tangled branches. In a world where trust is just a tool and love isn’t meant for people like them, Fawn is determined to beat the powerful at their own elaborate games of make-believe. Even the man who Owns her.

Teaser from this bonus material (This is a chapter from Chrysalis in Marius’ POV) (image attached):

He slid the glass to his side of the coffee table as he sat down on the other end of the sofa.

“We talked about this, mon coeur.”

My heart. He’d started to call me that when we were boys. I remembered the blood on my chest and how he’d sewn me back together.

“He’d said he’d rip out my heart if I didn’t obey.”

“You are my heart,” Marius whispered. “You must take care of it. What happens to you happens to me.”

Lifting the drink to his nose, Marius sniffed and grimaced. Yes, the very scent we often associated with the Vulture visiting our beds. “You don’t need to punish yourself, Elliot.”

Marius went as far as standing, setting the half empty glass on the bar cart.

But I did need to punish myself. I deserved so much more than the sting of memories. A need for something more substantial itched my spine, but satisfying any urge right now was out of the question.

“I can’t sleep.”

He wasn’t far, but I wanted to touch. I was selfish enough to crave this, yet I would not ask for it aloud.

“Because Fawn isn’t near you.” He phrased it as though he were finishing my sentence, not a question.

Folding my hands in my lap, I stared at the flames. “I wouldn’t ask that of her,” I said evenly. “I’m not a monster.”

My voice broke and it sent a wave of rage through me. Of course I was. I was no better than the disgusting man who had Owned us.Marius moved an inch or two closer. “I know that. She knows that.”
