I receive a lot of comments, FB messages and emails every day asking if there will be a 4th book in my Arotas series. The answer is YES, thanks to the overwhelming requests. EVERMORE will be the title of the 4th book and it will hopefully be out around Valentine’s Day. This novel will be more like a novella, shorter and more focused specifically on Gabriel and Roseline’s reunion.
For those of you who have been wondering what happened in the 300 years BEFORE Forbidden, I am in the process of completing DESOLATE, book one of the prequel Immortal Rose Trilogy. You will have the chance to experience Roseline’s first moments after she awakes in the church, her torturous marriage to Vladimir, her brokeness as she is beat, mocked and abused and fall in love with Fane as he becomes her only reason to live.
DESOLATE is currently without a release date due to my obsessing over adding in a few more chapters (like you are going to complain about more haha) and issues with creating a cover. Until the book is off for edits and I have a cover in the process I will not be releasing any firm dates but I can promise you that it is at the top of my priority list.
I adore these characters and I am so thankful that so many of you feel the same way.
As a thank you I made a little promo image with 5 things you might not know about Arotas…
Tuesday is Halloween and I thought I’d have a little fun. How would you guys like to win a signed paperback of Forbidden and Reckoning? Maybe a little swag too?
Here’s the deal.
Find a picture (any picture) of a person you think would make a great immortal in my upcoming book, DESOLATE. Go towww.picmonkey.com and use some of the fun tools to create some vampire features like I did for Verity, one of my new characters.
Have fun changing skin tone, eye color, add blood, etc. Create the coolest image you can, then post here. Create a cool back story, give me a name and why you think your new guy or gal deserves to be in my book. You know what my immortals are like so have fun!
I will pick the winner by 10pm, eastern time on Thursday night.
You can post your images on my author page: https://www.facebook.com/AmyMiles.Author
PS: picmonkey is super easy to use so dont worry about being able to figure it out.
I have had countless emails, facebook messages, blog posts and twitter pleas coming in from Arotas fans since the day REDEMPTION hit virtual shelves. It would seem that you all want to know what happens with Roseline and Gabriel for some strange reason
I have heard your pleas and am happy to announce that you talked me into it.
EVERMORE will be a companion novel that will come after the final scene of REDEMPTION. This will be my Valentines gift to you as a thank you for supporting these amazing characters.
This was originally going to be a secret but apparently I suck at those haha
I am deeply grateful for all of your support and so I decided to shift around my publishing schedule to give you this book.
I wanted to give you an a HUGE thank you for helping to make the Arotas Trilogy such a big success. When I published these books over a year ago I had no idea how they would be received. After their initial spike they leveled off nicely and I have gained so many amazing fans, many of which I can now happily call friends.
A year down the road I am beyond amazed that my Arotas books are not only doing well on Amazon but they are soaring on iBooks.
I just checked my rankings a few minutes ago:
Forbidden: #27 in free books
Reckoning: #82 in paid books
Redemption: #97 in paid books
I can not thank you enough for all of your support over the past year. To old fans, you rock and you know it! To new fans, I hope that you will follow me on twitter @AmyMilesBooks or join me on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/AmyMiles.Author so I can get to know you.
Just wanted to let you know that as of this morning RECKONING, book II of the Arotas Trilogy has finally gone live on iBooks! Woot!
Now we are just waiting on REDEMPTION.
Thank you all for being patient through this process. This has been out of my hands for several weeks now so I’m thankful that you have stuck with me and Smashwords as we worked to get it sorted out.
