Author Spotlight & Giveaway: Sara Humphreys


Ever wonder what goes into writing a story? The plotting and research that an author does? Where the inspiration came from for a particular character? There are many hidden secrets or information that we wouldn’t know about the book or writing process. A lot more goes into the writing than we think! Here are some interesting facts you may not know about the Amoveo Legend.

 *UNLEASHED, the first book in the Amoveo Legend series is set in Westerly, RI where my family has a beach house. I wrote the original version while staying there during the summer of 2008.

 *My sister, Kate Taney, is an actress and portrays Samantha in the video trailer of UNLEASHED.

  *I adore New Orleans! After staying at the Hotel Monteleone and hanging out in the famous Carousel Barn, I knew I had to use that as a setting in one of my books. Both the hotel and bar are featured in UNTOUCHED and we even did a book signing at The Carousel Bar in The Hotel Monteleone the week UNTOUCHED was released.

 *UNTAMED is set on Woodbine Farm which is a real place in Maryland that is owned by my cousins. The farm has been in the family for generations and we have huge family reunion there every five years. While at the reunion during the summer of 2010, the idea for UNTAMED was born.

*In every book, I use at least one family name.

*All of the heroes have piece of my husband in them.

*The music in the Amoveo Legend video trailers is by the amazing singer/songwriter, Amy Petty. She and I connected through a mutual friend and she was kind enough to let me use her songs in the trailers. You can check her out on itunes. My favorite song is Long Way Down, which is the song in the trailer of UNDONE.

*If you pre-order UNDONE and send me proof of purchase to sara@novelromance.net then I’ll send you a free UNDONE pin. Offer good until May 6th or quantities run out! All the details are on my website www.sarahumphreys.com

Blurb:

Party girl Marianna Coltari is an unmated pureblood Amoveo who wants nothing to do with the ongoing war that took her father’s life and continues to consume her brother, Dante’s. But when she is targeted by one of the clans, she has little choice but to run and hide in a cabin with Pete Castro, a retired cop from her brother’s security firm. There, Pete and Marianna explore an intensifying attraction between them until danger is at the door and there’s no escape.

Bio: 
Sara has been a lover of both the paranormal and romance novels for years. Her sci-fi/fantasy/romance obsession began years ago with the TV Series STAR TREK and an enormous crush on Captain Kirk. That sci-fi obsession soon evolved into the love of all types of fantasy/paranormal; vampires, ghosts, werewolves,

and of course shape shifters.

Sara is married to her college sweetheart, Will. They live in Bronxville, New York with their 4 boys and 2 insanely loud dogs. Life is busy but never dull.
