Wow! What an amazing time I’ve had writing this series. Just in case you didn’t know… Blue Moon Too Good To Be True was the first book I ever wrote. Even thinking back on it now, I laugh at how much story I squeezed into those 320 pages. I wrote a couple other books and heeded to a lot of critiques, before I felt more confident to write the heavily requested Blue Moon II: This is Reality. That book was all fast-paced action with four different POVs. I got a lot of requests for the BeastMasters to have their own book, and a certain someone - Andrea Morgan Goddell – insisted Hawk needed to be a main character. I thought Hawk was interesting and fun, but had no desire to make him an MC, so thank Andrea for that if you’re a die-hard Hawk fan. She’s the only one I trusted to advise me on the content of this book and as usual, she did a wonderful job. Like I said, your contribution is invaluable. Thank you, love.

Blue Moon III: Call of the Alpha, was fucking awesome to write! Even though it took a year and a half to write it. This book has more fighting and the main characters are the Persian assassins. They come from a different culture, different beliefs. Therefore they speak different and hardly appreciate or understand western traditions. While it’s all fiction, there was still a lot of research needed. A shit ton of kung fu movies to watch and literature to read. But that was the fun part. I adore the old kung fu movies before they became glamorized. I’m glad I didn’t rush with this one. When I hit a hard patch, I’d stop. When another story was on my heart… I wrote it. Like Don’t Judge and Promises. But I always went back to my sexy assassins.

First of all, I want to thank the readers. Without you guys, we’ll just have a bunch of stories, and nothing more. I hope you all enjoyed this series as much as I adored writing them. It’s a special series to me and I’ve loved reading all the wonderful comments and reviews. I learned so much about writing from my first book written and without all of your thoughts and critiques, I would’ve never learned so much to apply to future works. Thank you all. It’s the readers that are the special ones… not the writers.

I next want to thank Princess So of TP Peacocking, for this amazing cover. Alpha is exactly how I’ve always pictured him and Call is big, tattooed and sexy, enough said. This cover was done in January of 2015 that’s why there was no reveal, but it is definitely one of my favorite covers. The background, the darkness, and Alpha’s mysteriousness all works so well together. Thank you Princess and I wish you so much success in the future.

Of course Tina Adamski, my editor of Ally Editorial Services, did an amazing job with my Persian assassins and their languages! We are so in sync and work so well together. This is going into our third year together, she knows my voice well and makes the story flow wonderfully. I’m always amazed how she can restructure my sentences without changing my voice in the story. I can never praise her enough for not only editing but teaching me along the way. I learn new things with every book. I trust her not only with my personal works, but also with the works of my authors under Via Star Wings Books.

Authors, if you’re looking for a fantastic editor, please look no further. Tina knows her stuff and is fast and efficient! Just check out the testimonies on her page.  http://www.allyeditorialservices.com/

It was an absolute pleasure meeting and now working with my new proofreader, Joanna Villalongo. She came in at the last minute and put a pair of fresh eyes on the manuscript, ensuring that the final book in this series is as squeaky clean as it can get. She was amazing and very professional. Can’t thank her enough! https://www.facebook.com/Precision.Editing/

My formatting is done by Casey of Fancy Pants Formatting. I loved the graphics in this one of course, just like in the second installment. I’ve worked with this talented lady a long time as well. When something works for you, you don’t change it, right. Being that I’m not the most patient women in the world (winking), I sincerely appreciate when I’m not put off for days. She’s always right on top of what’s needed. She’s so sweet and again my biggest thing is being professional and being easy to work with, and Ms. Harvell certainly is.  http://www.fancypantsformatting.com/

Last but certainly not least, I want to thank my children for understanding why mom is closed away for long hours. And, my husband David is my rock and without him these stories wouldn’t be as sweet and romantic as they are. Where else do you think I get my inspiration? (Winking)
