Meet author Tammy Morea #amwriting #amreading #augustmoon

Abites - today on the blog I'd like to introduce you to a brand new author - one to watch out for! Her name is Tammy Morea and her new book August Moon is coming in May 2014.

Isn't the cover gorgeous?

Welcome Tammy - please tell us about yourself...

So here’s my story….

For as far back as I can remember I have loved to read books, thanks to my Mom an avid reader herself.  During my middle school years, I came to fall in love with creative writing. I started writing poems and short stories, and my favorite project was a book report, since it combined my two favorite things: reading and writing. 

When I was seventeen years old, I started thinking about maybe writing a book of my own, one day.  A few years later, I’m twenty one years old, daydreaming on a train ride from my home town on Long Island to Manhattan and this scenario just pops into my head, it was brief and minimal, but it stayed with me all day. On the train ride home, I jotted it down on a napkin from Dunkin Donuts and kept in the drawer of my nightstand. 

Over the next year or two, I would take out the napkin and read it; the plot started to grow in my mind, and I would write ideas down, thinking this would be a good book to write one day. But, then life happened, I got married at twenty-four and my family became my priority, my dream of writing a book, got pushed to the back burner. 

Fast forward fifteen years later, I am in a miserable marriage and very unhappy, but stuck and quite honestly afraid to be on my own. So as usual I would just lose myself in a book, falling into a different world, a world so much better than my own. 

I heard all this buzz about this book called Twilight, I looked into it and thought, a vampire YA book? Not for me. But the buzz just kept growing, and I thought, why not try something new? I looked at is a new world for me to get lost in. 

What happen to me after opening that book, completely changed my life! First of all I couldn’t get enough of the Twilight story; I eagerly awaited the next books in the series to come out; I was enthralled. But something else happen to me, actually two significant life changing events took place after I read the last page of Breaking Dawn. 

·                     One, I left my husband. The love story between Edward and Bella opened my eyes to the kind of love I wanted and to the kind of love I deserved. 

·                     Two, I sat down with a pad and a pen and finally wrote my book, it only took me two months to write it. I couldn’t believe how easy it was for me to create my story. August Moon is the product of those few sentences I wrote down on a Dunkin Donuts napkin, so many years ago.  

Books have always been there for me, the way I look at it, they kind of saved my life. So I am honored to contribute a story of my own, I hope you all enjoy getting lost while reading the pages of August Moon, as much as I did writing it. 

Wow - thanks Tammy. Now won't you tell us a little more about August Moon?

August Moon is a YA Romance Novel….. coming in May of 2014

What do you do when the one who broke your heart, is the only one who can fix it?

There is nothing in this world stronger than the powerful emotion of being in love.

Except, maybe the paralyzing pain of a broken heart.

Moving to a small unfamiliar beach town in the summer before her senior year of high school is really going to suck. Raven, a black-haired beauty, from a well- off family was certain about that.

Miserable in her circumstance’s, nothing could convince her otherwise, until Raven meets Quinn, a local with a love for surfing and a bad reputation to go with it.

Despite the very different worlds they live in, their desire for each other is undeniable.

Raven’s fears and misery start to vanish as she and Quinn fall deeper and deeper into each other.

Raven is unknowingly used as a pawn, in a turn of disastrous events, caused by Quinn’s older brother and his dealings with some very dangerous people.

Quinn must convince them that Raven means nothing to him.

Quinn has only one choice to keep Raven safe. Hurt her, hurt her so bad she may never forgive him.

The events that follow could silence Raven’s heart for eternity and completely destroy what’s left of Quinn’s soul.

August Moon is a captivating story of young love.

Bringing two unlikely hearts together.

Only to be shattered by one tortuous decision.

Putting these star-crossed lovers on course for the ultimate challenge of forgiveness.

A little Bio...

Tammy Morea, Author 

I love to read Romance, Chick-lit, Fantasy, Paranormal, YA and a good Auto-Biography never hurt anyone. I love all animals, but I have a weakness for dogs. Just ask my dog Tank, he’s my heart…he’s a big mush, I bite his face all day long and he lets me. I also love mini pigs, one day I will have one, my fiancĂ© Chris doesn’t think so, but what does he know? I think I’m an amateur photographer, but really I just like to take pictures and sometimes they come out good. I love riding on the back of Chris’s Harley, it’s my favorite form of transportation. Tattoos are sexy, I have seven. I pretty much love anything with a skull on it, but I also love pink girly stuff too. I have a green thumb, I can cook my ass off, I love to be active. I come from a big, crazy Italian family and I wouldn’t want it any other way. And just because I want to give her props, I think Marilyn Monroe is the sexiest, hottest bad-ass bitch in the history of sexy, hot bad-ass bitches.
