Winners Announced and Book Highlight - Hidden Wings by Cameo Renae

Before I introduce you to our lovely guest, I'd like to take a moment and congratulate our two Valentine's Giveaway winners.

Congratulations Lindsey Coolidge and Danael McGuire. The authors will be getting in touch with you shortly with e-copies of their books :)

And now for today's guest....

It is my great pleasure to introduce you to the lovely, Cameo Renae and her latest book, Hidden Wings. This little darling is getting amazing reviews and remains in the top 10 of multiple categories on Amazon. I have bought myself a copy and can't wait to get into it :)

Seventeen is a life changing age for Emma Wise.

As her family's sole survivor in a car crash, she is left with a broken arm and a few scrapes and bruises. But these are only outward marks; inside, her heart is broken and the pieces scattered.

Whisked away to Alaska, to an aunt she’s never met, Emma starts over. Secrets unveil themselves and now…she doesn't even know who or what she is.

A centuries old prophecy places Emma in the heart of danger. Creatures of horrifying and evil proportions are after her, and it will take Emma, her aunt, and six, gorgeously captivating Guardians to keep her safe. But, if she can survive until her eighteenth birthday... things will change.

I asked Cameo if she would be willing to tell us a little bit about her writing and she has generously obliged. It's so lovely to have you with us today. Welcome to YAlicious, Cameo :)

A lot of people ask me if I plot my stories. The answer is both yes and no.

When I get an idea for a story, I write out the main things that I think would make it a great story.

Who? What? When? Where and Why?

But usually that’s about the extent of my plot. I’ve never written more than one page of plot.

Why…you ask?

Well. In my writing world, I have found that plotting does not help me. I am what they call a “Seat of the Pants Writer” or a “Pantster”.  As I write, the story just takes on a life of its own. Ideas, scenes, new characters, and then the storyline all seem to fall into place.  Most of the time I am totally taken by surprise at the twists and turns the story can take.

One scene I was writing for the upcoming novel ~ Broken Wings had be BAWLING…like literally sobbing because someone’s death took me by surprise. As I was writing it I was like… NO!!!

It seems like my characters dictate the direction of the story, and I’m just along for the ride. But, I must say… it is quite an adventure to get lost in my mind, and my world. I hope you’ll pick up one of my stories and join me there.

If you happen to…THANK YOU!!! 

Thanks so much for sharing your style with us, Cameo.
