Sweet Sixteen - The Aqua Lie release day thoughts

I can't believe the time has come around so quick!
I can't believe it's the day where i publish my sixteenth title!

SIXTEEN!!!

The inspiration for the Aqua Saga came to me through a dream. I nornally have vivid dreams, but this one was particularly crazy vivid!

At first the whole idea seemed crazy, and at the very first instant it was! It didn't even make sense to me! So if it didn't make sense to the author, it probbaly wouldn't make sense to the reader. So i changed  my alternatate roller rink world (Told you, cray cray!) to an underwater dystopian landscape. The dream was underwater as well, but i've always been in love with the dystopian genre and this seemed to fit.

Then there was the shark idea.

Another crazy weird idea that would never work, right? Wrong. I played with idea and asked my beta reader and a few other authors what they thought of humans morphing into sharks… they didn't hate it!

I've also always been obsessed with superhero stories and comic book characters, The Avengers, The Flash and Superman being some of my favourites and i thought, what if these humans in my story had been genetically modified as infants or experimented on by their evil general?

This was how the Aqua Saga was born.


I hope you like my cray cray story ;) I'm personally obsessed with Pym and Rush.

Book 2 in the Aqua Saga, The Aqua Lie is out now at all online retailers.

Abandoned by her Mother at a young age and raised by an overly-protective Grandmother, Matilda, Amelia is confined to the grounds of her childhood home, Stoney Manor. Amelia meets Matthew Fairchild, the new boy in town, and quickly becomes infatuated with him. Amelia soon discovers things aren’t always what they seem in the little town of Cave Spring, Ga. On her 16th birthday, life as she knows it changes. Her Grandmother confesses to her that she and her family are witches and, The Darkness, is after her for her family’s power. Along with her friend Luna, she embarks on a journey to discover who she really is. Can she protect her family from the Darkness? Is maintaining her relationship with her new boyfriend Matthew even possible? Can she uncover her family’s secrets or will they remain in the dark forever?

Teaser time! + news - The Aqua Lie Teaser plus What's New from L.L. Hunter

Who wants an Aqua Lie teaser? Enjoy wink emoticon

I almost cried. “Rush?” I wretched the door open and saw his panting figure in the corridor outside. He must have run after me.
“You can’t be here. If anyone sees you…” He leapt inside and shut the door after him. Then his lips were on mine and I couldn’t breathe. I tried pushing him off because if I kissed him, there was a chance he could die, and I couldn’t have that. I had to save him. But his lips didn’t stop their assault on mine, and I admit I didn’t mind. I kissed him back. Oh, what the hell. If either of us was going to die, we might as well have what we want most before it ended.

-The Aqua Lie, book 2 of the Aqua Saga. Coming July 31.

Tucker
I am sitting at the local bar contemplating on what I have done with my life. I am almost twenty eight years old and I feel like I haven’t done anything worthwhile. I always hated school. I made sure to get a high school diploma but college wasn’t in the cards for me. I went to a technical school and became a roofer a year later. I have been working at Southern Roofing for eight years now. I have made good money but I feel like my life is empty. My brother, Jake, and I don’t get along and it got worse after my parents passed away and he went off to college. My best friend, Shane, left home and went to Louisiana State University. He comes home to visit but it isn’t the same. Our little circle of friends seemed to have disappeared when everyone went to college and I stayed behind in the town we all grew up in. We all went our separate ways except for Jake and Belle. They both attended New York University and were both studying radiology. Don’t get me wrong. I am proud of all my friends and I want to see them succeed. Unfortunately, I can’t help but feel left behind. I don’t have a girlfriend and I have always dreamed of having a family of my own. The one girl I have always wanted is way out of my league and my best friend’s sister. Shane would kill me if I went after Kayla, I think. Honestly, I’m pretty sure Kayla would laugh in my face if I ever asked her out. Kayla is absolutely gorgeous. She has long light brown hair and the most amazing green eyes. She has an hourglass figure that will drop a man to his knees. Besides her killer looks, the enormous brain on that woman is so hot. I would give anything to have more than a friendship with her but I am afraid of rejection and that our friendship will go to hell. I am also pretty sure she has never looked at me that way anyway.
