One of the things I have loved most about becoming an author has been the community. When I first started writing, I met some incredible authors, book bloggers and designers. I can’t quite capture and describe how wonderful it is to be surrounded by people who share your passion. These people became friends and there are many that I am still in touch with, years later!
With Social Media it can sometimes be hard to feel real connections to people. But, since technology isn’t going anywhere, I feel like it’s so important to encourage those connections when we can!
So with that being said, I’m going to be “theming” my weeks on Social Media so that we can connect, discuss and chat about things — hopefully more often!! Each Monday I’ll be hopping on Facebook, Instagram and here on my Webpage to say hello, touch base and let you know what the weekly theme is & if there are any particular things to keep an eye out for in the upcoming week!
Since this is the first week of an official theme, I thought it was best to start with where my journey began — Protected!
Protected is Book 1 in the Ariya Adams Trilogy. It’s a new adult, paranormal romance centered around Ariya Adams, a Senior at Kingsbrook College. She has led a “normal” existence so far, but that’s all about to change. Get ready to go on a journey with Ariya and her friends as she learns secrets about her past that will throw her into a dangerous new paranormal world.
Protected has both vampires AND werewolves, for those of you who like both paranormal creatures (although I will warn you I am #teamvampire, so the werewolves don’t play as big of a role).
Protected is available on Amazon in e-book and paperback formats (Click here to check it out!). I am exclusive with Amazon, so that is the only place to find my books at this time. This also means, I have enrolled in the Kindle Unlimited Program! If you don’t know what that is — check it out at Amazon! But essentially what it means for you is that you can read the entire Ariya Adams Trilogy for FREE!! YES you are reading that right! 🙂 FREE!!
A couple of other notes / reminders, in case you hadn’t heard! I got a new Pinterest account, Author Anna Applegate, so look me up there and check out some things I’m posting. Can’t wait to Follow what you post as well!!
I’ll also be doing a GIVEAWAY this Wednesday for a little #WinningWednesday action. I’ll be giving away a signed paperback version of Protected with a bookmark on both Facebook and Instagram! Stay tuned later this week (Wednesday) for how to enter that!
That’s all for now! Thanks for stopping by and I’m looking forward to chatting with you soon!
