Until Emma shows up at a bar in a short skirt and high heels, and suddenly seems anything but safe!

Kiss Me I’m Irish: Whatever Reilly Wants by Maureen Child

Guest Post: Sunrise Author Services Launch Tour

SAS-By-Authors-For-Authors

Hello and welcome to the official launch blog tour of Sunrise Author Services, a company by authors for authors!

Sunrise Author Services is a little project Marie Landry and Jessica Tate have been planning for well over a year. They both wanted to take their personal experiences as authors, designers, and assistants and help other indie authors or aspiring indie authors in their journey to success. The two of them put their abilities together and created this company.

~~~

Let’s take a moment and discuss more about SAS, what we do and offer, and anything else you may be curious about.

What services does SAS provide for authors?
SAS currently offers premade covers, teaser graphics, and personal assistant services.

Will you be offering any other services in the future?
Yes! We’re going over the possibility of adding more services down the line, but as of right now we’re focusing on the covers, graphics, and PA services to start.

What makes SAS stand out from the rest?
We’re indie authors and we know the value of good promotion. When you choose SAS, we will do everything we can to promote your book on our blog, newsletter, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. And our help doesn’t stop after the services are finished. We’re also more than happy to share future sales and other promotions. All you have to do is send us a message with a link and we’ll do the rest.

Will you ever offer any discounts?
Of course! We will periodically be offering discounts (% off or $X off) on our services. Keep reading and you’ll find one you can use right now!

What do I do to inquire about a service?
We have two forms: one for the covers and graphics (for Marie) and one for the personal assistant services (for Jessica). Fill out the form for the service you’re interested in and we will contact you within 72 hours via email to go over the details. For the rest of March you can receive 5% off your service of choice with the coupon code GRANDOPENING. Just add it at the bottom of the form and we’ll take that off your total.

Kiss Me I’m Irish: Tangling with Ty by Jill Shalvis

kissmeSynopsis: Dr. Nicole Mann has no room in her mind or her schedule for romance. But when the architect renovating her apartment turns out to have a charming Irish accent, all bets are off—and Ty Patrick O’Grady plans to use every trick in his book to stay in her life for good.

Cover: This novel has two designs about twelve years apart and I honestly wouldn’t have picked up either in a bookstore. The oldest version looks awkward, as thought it was originally bigger and then squished down to fit the needed size. The second is better, but feels like three separate images collaged together rather than one cohesive picture. The UK Mills & Boon cover is decent, while the anthologies cover is pure yum.

Kiss Me I’m Irish: Tangling with Ty by Jill Shalvis

A naked man would have changed everything, but there wasn’t one in sight.

Nicole was in the mood to kick some ass, as long as her Taco Bell didn’t get crushed.

He was willing to let life take him where it would. Here. There. Anywhere. Not her, she knew exactly where she wanted life to take her. She’s always known.

Kiss Me I’m Irish: The Sins of His Past by Roxanne St Claire

sinspastSynopsis: One incredible night was all Kendra Locke got from Deuce Monroe before he walked away to chase his big-league dreams. Years later, Deuce is back in his hometown ready to pick up where he left off… but Kendra had no intention of letting him. The consequences of that one night had shattered her dreams and now what Deuce wants threatens her future. The attraction is still there, but will she be able to walk away?

Cover: The original cover for this novel is both artistic and bland. I love it in theory and perhaps as a honeymoon photo, but all you really notice is the unfortunate yellowish-brownish shade that takes over most of the space.

Learning Life Lessons from Fiction

In college one of my school assignments was a group project to create an online magazine. I had forgotten all about it until I was checking a friend’s bookshelf for something to borrow and saw a copy of  Kody Keplinger’s debut novel. One of my “articles” had been inspired by the book, as I’d just read it that year (book review here). It took me a bit to gain access to the site as no one could remember the password, but I was finally able to and saw that people were still leaving us comments!  Some people thought my article helpful, some wondered if it would really work, and others said it would turn you into a clone. I’ve posted my article below… What do y’all think?
