PROMO Blitz: Undressed by Avery Aster

Avery Aster 
Erotic Romance


(78,000 words, Erotic Contemporary Romance, M/F, HEA, Ages 18+ due to sexual situations and mature content)

Milan's notorious playboy, Massimo Tittoni, seems to have everything--Lamborghinis, exotic women, palaces throughout Europe and business success. Ramping up his fabric company to go global with a new apparel brand, he ruthlessly stops supplying fabrics to the American client who inspired the collection. But once they meet, what's he willing to give to get her in his bed?

Upper East Side designer Lex Easton will be damned if she'll let an Italian stud muffin knock her down. So what if she named her favorite vibrator after him. With Fashion Week approaching, she'll do whatever it takes to secure the fabrics she needs to become the next Diane von Furstenburg-- even sleep with her rival. Lex's Louboutins stilettos are dug in deep to win this war.

Avery Aster's super-glossy debut novel is loaded with passionate escapism, pitting American ambition against Italian tradition. Erotic romance fans who appreciate extended sex scenes, witty banter and glamour mustn't miss Undressed

Inside Scoop: Though the hero and heroine remain monogamous, their Prada-wearing friends indulge in a ménage a trois and other fashionable sexual fun and games.

The Manhattanites is a series of full length novels focusing on relationships. Each book may be read as a stand alone. If you've enjoyed TV shows like Girls (HBO), Dirty Sexy Money (ABC), and The Bold & the Beautiful (CBS) then you'll love this series. Avery's characters are over the top. They have raunchy sex, speak their minds and the plots are twisted. (In a good way!) Manhattanites celebrate lust, ambition, and true devotion.

Tour Kick Off - Monster Night by P.B. Azeltine and M.E. Drewry

Young Adult Fantasy
Date Published: November 2012

When a drug surfaces in town that turns teens into the mythological creature of the chupacabra, David
Copperfield Finkleman is called in to help. Why? Because David possesses a rare gift. He is a true blue, magic out of the fingertips, potions and spells, wizard. Well, that and because his grandfather is the lead investigator on the case and the drug is circulating in David's own high school. David is thrust into a world of danger and monsters he never knew existed, all the while living his normal daily life. He learns that he will have to save the very bullies who torment him in school and the chemistry teacher who wants nothing more than to flunk him. Adding to his problems, he deals with girl troubles, a boss who doesn't appreciate his sarcasm, and saving an agent's life before it's too pressure!

She has learned that as she goes through life, humor can make it much easier to get through. She lives in Olympia, Washington (U.S.A.) with her husband, two daughters, son in-law, future son in-law, two dogs, one cat, and one lovebird.

M.E. Drewry

Reading Addiction Blog Tours MEET and GREET
#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

Possibly, I’d certainly like it to be. That will depend on the readers. But I’m excited about writing. I write about the things I like to read. I write stories that not only keep the readers on the edge of their seat - but inspire them too.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?

Not rushing the process. The words come to me as I sit at my computer. I may have a vague idea or outline but it changes once I sit down to write the actual words. And it’s more than words. It’s like the characters are alive and want their story to be known. They always seem to have the final say. Sometimes I’m as surprised as the readers!

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?

My family wasn’t involved with my writing in so much as none of them write. I did have a group of friends who enjoy reading that I would practice on. I’d send them a few chapters at a time and was pleasantly surprised when they kept asking for more. 

#4 – What is next for your writing?

I’m just finishing the next book in the Jagged series. And oh my! The characters have really kicked it up a notch, as if book one wasn’t enough. The demanding little buggers wake me up now. They’re such an impatient lot – mind you – some are addicts and I wouldn’t expect any less. It’s the normal ones that can really fool you though.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?

I started reading around five years of age. I love to read. I spent countless hours enjoying a good book. Money was always tight but you could go anywhere with the right book in hand. Since I’ve started writing I don’t read nearly as much but I am reading a book at the moment. It’s by Jeff Abbott, The Last Minute.

Tour Kick Off - Taming Tyler by Rebecca Rembish

YA Contemporary Romance
2nd In the Texting Tyler Series
Date Published: 2/18/13

In Rebecca Rembish's premier novel, 'texting tyler', Chris lives in the shadow of his older brother, struggling to be the popular one... the good looking one... the one all the girls adored. 
No doubt about it, Tyler Clarke is hot. Tyler Clarke has a reputation. Tyler Clarke has been with every girl in school. Tyler Clarke is also a virgin... or at least he was until his first date with Lori Matthews.
One thing Tyler could never seem to avoid was a label. Good or bad, no label had ever bothered him quite as much as the one he received from Lori.  What was it about her that made him care so much? Why was she different from all the other girls he ever met?
While Tyler never made decisions on a future beyond high school, Lori is a planner. After graduation, she decides to spend her first year at home and attend the community college for two reasons. She needs more time to plan her future and she needs to save money. Tyler and what came next were never part of her plan.
With an uncertain future, a pregnant girlfriend and not many people to turn to, Tyler struggles with one of the toughest years of his life.
Lori's careful plans are turned upside down. The fear of raising a baby in the same difficult circumstances she grew up with and a relationship that scares her to death, Lori must make the most heart wrenching decision of her life.

Purchase Link:

Reading Addiction Blog Tours MEET and GREET
#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?
I would love to be able to support my family by writing, but I’m under no delusions. I know there are only a few who make it big, but if writing will keep me from having to take a part time job at Wal-Mart…I’ll take it.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
Finding time! Homeschooling three kids and running a small hobby farm takes a lot of time. When I do get a few moments dedicated to writing, the page almost fills itself with words because I’ve had so much thinkin’ time.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?
I don’t think I can pinpoint just one person. When I first decided I would try and publish my writing, I joined It’s an online critique group. Their input was priceless in helping me to become a better writer and learning the ropes.

#4 – What is next for your writing?
I’m currently working on a novella entitled “Dark Night of the Soul”. It’s a fantasy with a touch of romance, but mostly just a quirky adventure in the afterlife. But don’t worry, those who have read Fate War: Alliance, I’m working on outlines for the sequel to that as well!

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?
YES!  Reading is what makes me want to write. I am currently reading unpublished authors and books for critique exchanges. I’m also reading Nicky Charles’ new book, Betrayed.
