Release Blitz: Wicked Beginnings by L.A. Cotton

  Wicked Beginnings (Wicked Bay #1)

BY L A COTTON

 BLURB

The first book in a brand new YA/NA crossover series from the author who brought you Chastity Falls

When seventeen-year-old Eloise Stone finds herself half way across the world, moving into her Uncle's pool house, she expects things to be ... awkward. She doesn't expect to come face-to-face with the boy from last summer. The boy that made her feel things she'd never felt before. But a year is a long time, and Lo isn’t the same girl she was then. Besides, they’re family now.

It’s weird.

Maverick Prince acts as if he doesn’t remember her, treating Lo like nothing more than an annoying younger sister, and not in a ‘he cares’ way, just in a ‘he’s an arsehole’ way. One thing‘s for sure, he isn’t just dangerous for her sanity—he’s hazardous for her heart.

Lo thought moving to Wicked Bay was the worst of her problems, but as life begins to unravel around her, she’s going to find out it’s only the beginning…

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Author of mature young adult and new adult novels, L A is happiest writing the kind of books she loves to read: addictive stories full of teenage angst, tension, twists and turns.

Home is a small town in the middle of England where she currently juggles being a full-time writer with being a mother/referee to two little people. In her spare time (and when she’s not camped out in front of the laptop) you’ll most likely find L A immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.

I Can Be Your John Cusak

One of my exes is having a baby with one of my friends. Not just any baby, twins. And I'm not jealous, I'm happy for them! They deserve it. But it really makes me think...

One of my other exes is married to someone with the same name as me, and they also have a happy family. He deserves it more than anyone I know. 

A third ex got karma handed to him on a platter, and then he bounced back better than ever and is married with a new baby. I always root for him even though he did me dirty. 

But, it's been 8 years now. I'm ready to meet someone. I'm ready to be happy too. I feel like I've done a lot of good to make up for the bad I've put others through in my past. 

I don't understand why everyone is always so attached to looks these days. Or maybe it's me. Maybe my standards are too high.  

When is it going to be my turn? When will I feel the butterflies again? It was October of last year that I finally felt that again for the first time in years. I held onto that as tight as I could, but it wasn't real. I had opened myself up to someone after years of riding solo, and he took advantage. 

I remember praying every morning and every night that he would be my husband. I would beg that he be mine forever. Everything happens for a reason, and there's a reason we aren't together. 

It's been so long since I've taken anyone home to meet my family. Originally my grandma would ask me if I was seeing anyone and if I said no she'd say, "good". Now when she asks if I'm seeing anyone and the answer is no, she says, "why?". It's like I can't please her. I know they worry I'm getting old. I worry I'm getting old. 

Okay, I'm done dumping on you. 

Hang tight.

About the Author

AuthorPics
Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

Mid-Life Crisis #2 - Age: 31

So I'm guessing you've seen the title. I kind of feel like that's where I'm at in life currently. I went through my first mid-life crisis at the young age of 26. Now, here I am again 5 years later. 

I'm unhappy with a lot of things in my life currently. I know I need to make changes, but it's easier said than done in some of these cases. I wish I could have someone to share my life with, but I'm almost thinking it's better I don't because I'm not 100% yet, and I don't want someone to have to see me like this. 

I don't know. Sometimes I wish I could go back and relive old memories just so I can remember what it feels like to really care about someone and have the feelings reciprocated. 

I had my first breakdown moment when it comes to books in front of one of my best friends. It's happened once and once only, but it was sad and real. I told him that I had gone back and re-read a couple of my books and I worried that maybe I've been lying to myself this whole time, and maybe I'm not that good of a writer. He reminded me that I've written 13 books, why would I ever want to stop now? And I know he's right, it's just so hard sometimes to put so much into it and not get much ROI. 

I have only made $7500 off of my books in 3 years, and while that's $7500 more than I would have had, I also put out at least that plus some to get the covers, editing, formatting, etc. 

I know there are some authors out there that will sell less than $20 a month on their books, and I know there are others out there who will sell more than $10k a month. I am fortunate to land somewhere in the middle, but there is no magical formula. If I ever find out about one, I'll let you know. A few months ago I made $8 on my books. I don't think I've made that little since the first month I published back in May '14. It's disheartening to put so much of myself into each book and not see it gain the traction I would hope for. 

I'm also starting to really worry that I'll never be ready to be with someone again and I'll end up alone forever. The thought has really been messing with me a lot lately. I really hope I'm wrong.
