Hi!  Thanks so much for checking out my Amy Miles Books page.  Want to know a little about me?

My husband and goofball son are my life.

Interesting fact:  My husband and I met as pen pals while he was living in England.  NO, we didn’t “hook” up in a chat room.  YES, his accent is awesome!

I’ve been a carbaholic since birth and am now hopelessly addicted to frozen Cokes.  I mix coleslaw into my KFC mashed potatoes, soak cornbread in my milk and never drink from a straw.  I’m not really a big chocolate fan (I know, GASP!) and I want to run a marathon by the time I’m 35.  Ok, maybe 40.  45???

My vice in life, apart from cupcakes, is Vera Bradley!  Why does she have to make such amazing accessories?!?!

I’m a world traveler at heart who loves setting insane goals and working to meet them.  I adore attending book signings to meet new friends and am trying to overcome my introvert nature.  I spend far too much time on Facebook chatting with fans and have a heart for raising funds to help Action for Autism, a truly amazing St. Louis based organization that helps kids reach their true and unique potential.  

When I’m not writing I can be found on the golf course, enjoying the lake life or coming up with some new “urban homesteading” idea to try.  My amazing husband is the founder of RED COAT PR so we are always busy!

I am the author of:

FORBIDDEN, Book I of the Arotas Series

RECKONING, Book II of the Arotas Series

REDEMPTION, Book III of the Arotas Series 

EVERMORE, Book IIII of the Arotas Series

DESOLATE, Book I of the Immortal Rose prequel Trilogy

DEFIANCE RISING, Book I of the Rising Trilogy

RELINQUISH, Book II of the Rising Trilogy

CAPTIVATE

 All of my books are available in ebook format or can be purchased as a signed copy directly from me.  I greatly appreciate all of your feedback and am deeply thankful for everyone who takes the time to post a book review.

    Hi Amy, I just finished your novel, Forbidden. It just got better and better as I read it. I kept thinking while I was reading it, what a great movie this would make. Can’t wait for Reckoning to be available on Amazon. Keep up the great work. I can see you going far.

    • Amy Miles

      Hi Cyndy,
      Thank you so much for your kind comments. I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed Forbidden. I’ve had several people tell me that it would make a good movie. I won’t get my hopes up :)
      Only 5 days left till Reckoning hits the virtual shelves. I’m just as excited as you are, trust me!
      Comments and new reviews on Amazon always brighten my day. Thank you so much :)

    Hi from Adelaide in South Australia Amy . I have just read Forbidden which I found accidentally in Amazon and thoroughly enjoyed it.. Imagine my surprise when I found out Reckoning is just about on the virtual shelf ! Soon it will DEFINITELY be in my Kindle..

    I look forward to reading more of your work…

    • Amy Miles

      Hi Robin,
      Thank you so much for finding me :)
      I am sooooo excited to release Reckoning. Only one more day to go!

      PS: I swear I read your message wrong and thought your name was Adelaide (beautiful by the way) and then tried to type in Robin and my brain translated it to Ruby haha. LATE NIGHT!

      • Robin

        Hahaha… I know the feeling well..

        Oh by the way I am a male so Ruby is a bit off centre for me..

        Not for my wife though. Her name is Robyn so there are two of us in the one family…

    • Corinne

      I too found these books by accident on Amazon. I love that Amazon suggest books for me because I am mostly through Forbidden and I have really enjoyed it. I purchased Reckoning a few minutes ago so I can continue when I hopefully finish the first tonight. Thank you!

  3. Lyssa

    Congratulations, Amy.. Your books are SENSATIONAL!
    After devouring the Arotas trilogy nearly as fast as your Immortals can run, I have just finished – and loved – Defiance Rising.
    I haven’t written a review in the i-store yet.. they all get 10 stars from me (aside from the typos – I have a list if you want to private email me?).
    Then your brilliant books will be even better!! Thanks for sharing your gift with the world.
    And I can SO see movies, too.. That’s not getting your hopes up (as you said in an earlier reply), that’s the next logical step!
    All the best, Amy,
    Lyssa
    Tasmania
    (Your Australian fan-base continues to grow :)

    • Amy Miles

      Hi Lyssa,
      Typos…Urgh. No matter how much money I spend on editing people always seem to find more haha. Yes, I would greatly appreciate your list. I can’t stand knowing there are errors in my books. I really appreciate you taking the time to write then down :)

      Have you had a chance to read Captivate yet? It’s my first NA romance.its sweet, totally tame but certainly a different feel from my fantasy books.

      Thanks for contacting me. I adore meeting new people :)

  4. Taylor

    Hi, i just read the Arotas Trilogy and it was amazing. The story line is just great!! I’m hoping for book #4? :) I would seriously love if a #4 came out. Please? Well keep up with the outstanding books!

  5. Naz

    Hi Amy, I am just finishing reading the third book from the Arotas trilogy. I absolutely loved the books and I too think they would make an amazing movie. I just wanted to know what you were planning for Rose…. Will there be another book after this?? Keep up the good work and I’m sure I will be ready plenty more of your books. Naz xx

    • Amy Miles

      Hi.
      There are plans for more books. EVERMORE will be a companion novel that will detail Roseline and Gabriel’s reunion after Redemption ends. It is due to release as a Valentines day gift to everyone.
      I have also decided to turn the prequel novel into a prequel trilogy so everyone can get a good feel of what Roselines life was like before FORBIDDEN.
      DESOLATE will be out before the new year. Then will come SAVAGE and REFUGE.
      These books will be geared more toward a mature (new adult) audience because of the content and will be released in the first half of 2014.

  6. Tasha

    I came across Forbidden as a free book on itunes and though why not . i was half way through a different book and i don’t usually “cheat” on the books i’m currently reading but i was on a train and hey it was on my ipad. I couldn’t put it down! as soon as i finished it i went and purchased the next one which i am currently glued to! I guess my other book will just need to wait until i get through the series there’s no turning back now!

  7. Krystal

    Hi amy,
    Just finished Forbidden, I could not put it down. i blame that book for my lack of sleep hahaha. just about to start Reckoning! Thank you so much for such an amazing imagination

    • Amy Miles

      You know I always think that I should feel guilty when people tell me they lose sleep over one of my books but I’m so not :) thank you for letting me know

  8. Arianna

    Hi Amy,
    I’m a HUGE fan of your books! You are an amazing writer and probably my favorite author. I have read the Arotas Trilogy and loved it! I also read Defiance Rising and I absolutely loved it! When is book two coming out from the Rising Trilogy? Also, do you have any book recommendations similar to those books?
    Thanks,
    Arianna:)

    • Amy Miles

      The second book in the Rising Trilogy will be out early 2014. As soon as the book I’m working on right now heads to my editor I will leap back into this second book.

      I recommend Quinn loftis, Ella James, Amy bartol, Shelly crane, Shannon Morton, amber Lynn Natusch and more

  9. Alexis

    I am in love with every single one of the Aortas Trilogy books!!!! I felt that I was a part of the story and I didn’t even notice the few errors within the text because the book is just that great!! You are one of my favorite writers of all time and I can’t wait until February to read the forth book!! But for the mean time I am going to love reading Desolate!!! Just keep writing and don’t stop!!! Everyone will love your books soon! I even told a friend about the book Forbidden, mad now she is looking into reading it!! I plan to do the same with a few more friends too!!!
    DON’T EVER STOP WRITING!!!DO IT FOR YOUR FANS!!!!
    XOXO

    • Amy Miles

      Alexis,
      You are the sole reason why I write. I love to entertain :)
      I’m in this writing gig for the long haul. I learn and grow with each book. I’ve got far too many ideas trapped in my head to ever stop writing!

  10. Alexis

    Thank you so much, I just love your comment to me! And I have that problem all the time too! with so many ideas trapped in my head too. I love it even though it is hard to focus sometimes. But it gives me something to do and that is perfect for my life style. I do a lot of drawing and writing with all of my ideas but I know some of yours are your amazing books!!!!
    Seriously you should also make a movie!!!it will be a hit!!!!
    Xoxo -Alexis

  11. Muna

    HEY! I’m Munna
    Can I begin to say my goodness I love your books I’ve read Forbidden … Reckoning and On the last Redemption I’m almost done with the series and I love these books! The best books I’ve read so freaking far! The love and the pain that you discribe so well as young girl I would hide in my closet and read all the time :) I haven’t read these types of books for while 😍 thank you for sharing these great books!

  12. Mary k.

    I am not a big fan of reading I have to love the book to keep reading. I just want to say I loved reading the three book trilogy. I got wrapped up in the books I even cried a few times and laughed out loud. I cannot wait to read the rest of them.

  13. Katie

    Hey Amy just read all three of the arotas trilogy have to say amazing you have inspired me to finish writing my own book I only wish I could write as well as you I love the characters and their strengths I feel as I know them like real people lol.

  14. Shaan Usmaan

    Hi Amy,

    I read forbidden on my iPad and absolutely loved it. I then purchased a Kobo and downloaded a sample of Reckoning and the Formatting was really off, each paragraph would have a page to its self. I was just wondering if you were aware of this issue and there was anything you could do to fix it.

  15. millisa

    I bought relinquish and finished it in less then two days…can I say wow!! It seems that your books are really hard for me to out down. They are absolutely fantastic. I know its early to ask but when do you antisipate the last book of the series to come out….I can’t wait!!! I have a secret crush on Bastien…lol

    • Amy Miles

      Haha I do too :)
      I actually wrote Bastien and Eamon based on my husbands personality, just split in half.
      I have to publish EVERMORE to finish my Arotas novels and the release DESOLATE, the first book in the prequel trilogy so it will probably be April or may

  16. Samantha

    Hey Amy, I read your Arotas trilogy books and absolutely loved them. They brought out so many emotions and I loved how there were things that I was shocked to find out throughout the books! I think the song Monster by Skillet explains how Roseline feels throughout all three books. I cannot wait until Evermore comes out.

    • Amy Miles

      Hi Samantha,
      I’ve often thought that I should create a play list for these books. It would be a myriad of genres and emotions.
      I love how music can capture the essence of a book.

  17. Michelle

    Hi Amy! I just finished reading Forbidden, and it totally got me fired up. I can’t wait to read the next
    two, I loved it so much that I’m determined to buy the whole set of Arotas Trilogy. I’m already
    searching for it online so I can buy them preferably in hard cover, but if I can’t find some then in
    paper back! I really love your writings, I hope you will always continue to keep writing!

    • Amy Miles

      I actually stock the paperbacks myself if you would like a set.
      And trust me, I have no plans of slowing down on my writing. If go insane if I couldn’t let all of these voices out haha

  18. jen

    Hi amy, just read the fist to books band just going to start the 3rd book , I must say I’m enjoying them tremendously; I will decor keep a look out fir more, keep up the good work from your no 1 fan Jen xxx

    • Amy Miles

      Hi Jen,
      Thrilled to hear that you are enjoying my books. You made my night :)
      I’m excited about the release the 4th novel, Evermore on valentines day

  19. Cristina

    hey Amy. I’m writing a story/book and I can’t think of any cool “labels” for my characters. I have kind of an angel theme going on (camp name is Camp Halo). it’s like, there’s this once in a generation person is born who can control all elements kind of thing and I don’t know what to call the “species”. kind of like Gabriel only mine is more often instead of a prophecy. i know it doesn’t really tie in with the whole angel thing but I was wondering if you had any advice on how to come up with a good label. I hope I put this in a way that makes sense because when I look back at it, it doesn’t really seem to make sense but I really need the help and I didn’t know where else to go. Please help!

      • Reem Mansour

        Hey Amy!

        Love the Arota’s trilogy! how do i get my hands on ebook versions of all of them for free? Read forbidden and i’m in love with it!! do you know if they will release all 4 books on the internet for free anytime soon? Or if there are any hardcover or paperback copies i can get? I love Gabriel’s character in the books so keep up the good work! Are the rest of your books in the same genre as the Arota’s series

        • Amy Miles

          Forbidden is the only book in the series that is free. If you have iBooks you can purchase all three for $0.99 right now. The 4th book is available for preorder for $0.99 so through apple you can get all for books for less than $2 for a limited time.
          I have Defiance Rising and Relinquish that are dystopian fantasy romance and captivate is an NA contemporary romance.

  20. Reem Mansour

    Hey Amy!

  21. Jenna

    Hi Amy
    I love the arotas series and I can’t wait till the 4th one comes out. I’ve already Pre-Ordered it and I know you get this a lot but these books would make fantastic movies and I have my fingers crossed that someone will make a good movie out of this book and still keep the movie like the book
    P.S keep up the good work

    • Amy Miles

      Hi Jenna,
      Thank you so much for your kind words. I have had a lot of people tell me that this series would make a great movie, but as you said, there is always that fear that Hollywood would change it. Of course…they might be able to improve it ;)

  22. Rihanna

    Hi Amy
    Just finished evermore and wow it was good but I didn’t think you were going to make another series I thought you were just going to do a prequel series and that was it. :)

    • Amy Miles

      I am doing a spin off series in 2015. The Arotas characters will play cameo roles in some of the books but the main focus will be on the angels’ battle.

  23. caesar menez

    Hi Ms. Miles,
    first you are an incredible writer. I was curious is the trilogy box set for $0.99 full novels? i was not sure if they were complete novels because i noticed the epilogue for Forbidden that i purchased separately is slightly different t

  24. Hi Amy, I want you to know how much I love the Arotas trilogy. I bought all the books and could not put them down. I just finished Evermore today and it was great but it left me feeling like there should be more books to the series. At the end of the book Nicolae was turned and the town was being overrun by demons and what happens to Sadie and Will. It just leaves so many questions unanswered. I know this is suppose to be the last of this series but I am unsure as to why the series does not continue? Oh how I would love to read more about Rose, Gabriel and the others and their stories. Is there any possibility of you continuing this series? Thank you so much for listing to me.

    Dovie

    • Amy Miles

      Hi. The Arotas series is officially done. The spin off series, Shadow Lands will cameo some of the Arotas characters from time to time so you will still catch glimpses of their lives but the books will not be based on them.

      I adore these characters and look forward to spotlighting their future journeys but it is time to introduce new characters as well.

        • Amy Miles

          The Shadow Lands series will not be out until 2015. I have 11 other books coming out this year (life willing!) and I want to write ahead in that series so people don’t have to wait long between books.

          The prequel series will begin releasing with DESOLATE (preorder now with iBooks or on all platforms in 2 weeks) and will detail the first 300 years of Roselines life, her time with Vladimir and her love relationship with Fane. Hopefully that will help make the time pass quickly :)

  25. Kasandra

    I loved all your books. I started with forbidden and couldn’t stop reading. I went through the aortas trilogy and then into the rising set all in a week. Can’t wait till the next one. U have now become one of my favorite authors. Keep up the great work. We (the fans) love your work. Btw…. Now I’m struggling to decide if I love Gabriel to Bastien more. Lol

  26. Tammie

    Hi Amy,
    I find your writing style amazing. I have purchased everyone of your books and am amazed at the depth and intrigue you put in your characters, in the scene, and the plot. I love how you can write down all of the various thoughts, feelings, and turmoil that goes through a persons head in each of your characters. I feel this ability is what sets you apart from the other authors.

    I am looking forward to all of the new releases. (P.S. I have noticed that with each new release the errors are becoming less and less.)

    • Amy Miles

      Hi tammie,
      I put my heart and soul into each of my books. I love my characters, even the ones I want to club over the head haha

      I just like to entertain. I love to write, to think outside the box and wonder “if I throw this wrench into the story how will they react?” I don’t plot out my books. They happen as the characters lead. I have killed off my favorite characters simply because that is what was right for the story. Trust me…I cried hard!!!

      As far as editing issues…I am not an editor. I learned real quick that I should never attempt to be one. All of my books have gone through at least two editors. Sadly paying for editing does not mean my books will be perfect. Editing costs are VERY expensive so it’s just as frustrating to me when I find errors later on but no one is perfect :) I have used a couple different editors on recent books so I’m pleased to hear that there is improvement. I know that I’m learning more with each release so hopefully I’m making it a bit easier on them too ;)

  27. Lori

    Hi Amy, I just finished reading desolate and I was wondering what book came after that and or if there was a book after that, great book!!

    • Amy Miles

      Desolate is the first of a new trilogy. My arotas series, Forbidden, Reckoning, Redemption and Evermore are all tied to this book. They take place 300 years later. I wrote those first and then had readers begging to know how Roseline’s life began so I agreed to write this prequel trilogy.
      After Desolate will come Savage and then Refuge. I will be publishing those late spring and into summer :)

  28. Alicia

    Hi Amy,
    I have read all of your books and I can not wait for the next book in each of the series to come out! Poor Fane!! I look forward to reading more about he and Rose’s life together in her immortal series. I can’t wait to read more about Rose and Gabriel in the shadowlands, I truly hope they end up happy together! The rising series is phenomenal! My heart breaks for Bastien! I can not wait to see how everyone ends up in this series! I loved the ending of captivate too, we will get to see anymore so Ash and Slade or is it a different couple in the next book? As a stay at home mum of 3 children, reading is my treasured “me time” activity and your books are absolutely amazing! I feel like I truly understand each character personally and find myself being a one woman cheer squad for each of them! Thank you so much for writing such fantastic stories and giving this stay at home mum an amazing experience with each book I read!

    • Amy Miles

      Hi Alicia,
      Thank you so much for your kind words. It is always nice to hear when a book that I have poured my heart and soul into has touched someone else. I write to entertain. I write because I have to write others all of these voices in my head would drive me crazy haha.
      I’m so glad that you enjoyed the books. There are plenty more to come :)

  29. Kendall

    Hi Amy! I have am so in love with the Arotas trilogy, Evermore, and Desolate! You are now one of my favorite authors and I cannot wait until Savage and Refuge come out!! Do you have any specific dates as to when that will be? I’m dying to know what happens next for Rose as she lives her life with Vladimir. Thank you for creating such beautiful pieces of art.

    • Amy Miles

      Hi Kendall,
      I have a couple books that will be coming out first but I should be working out the releases for Savage and Refuge soon. I’m hoping late spring/summer for savage. I’ll be posting all info right here. If you would like to make sure you get all of my updates i would love for you to sign up to my newsletter. The link is on my contact page :)
