I have moved: Sara-Fawkes.com

I am Sara Fawkes. I write books. Some of them are about billionaires. Some have college-aged heroes and heroines trying to figure out their lives. Some are about bikers and the trials of being a modern day outlaw.

I no longer post here because I have created my own website:

http://www.sara-fawkes.com

I’ve mirrored my posts from the other site through today, but from now longer will not be posting on this WordPress blog. I’ll definitely miss some of the functionality and extras I get from a WP.com blog, but I really enjoy having my own website address. ;) I very much hope that you all will follow me over there and keep up with my books and future releases. Thank you for being part of my journey up until this point!!! *HUGS*

Snippet Saturday: BREATHE INTO ME – New Adult Romance – Chapter 1

I’ve been a fan of what used to be called “Upper YA/Young Adult” for a very long time. When the New Adult genre first emerged, I was all over that puppy, sucking down everything I could get my hands on. Tamara Webster, Colleen Hoover, Jamie McGuire – I ate those books up like nobody’s business.

As a writer, it was only a matter of time before I wrote one myself, and on this Tuesday that story will be published.

I’m SO EXCITED about this release!! I fell in love with Everett and Lacey almost immediately; I wrote the first quarter of the book in record time, even for me. This is a full novel, not a serial like most of my publications. I can’t wait to share it with you, it’s been such a wild and fantastic ride!

But, I’m sure you didn’t come here to hear me wax poetic on writing. “On with the snippets” I’m sure you’re chanting. :D Well, that’s fine by me, how about the full first chapter of BREATHE INTO ME? Continue reading

2014 – a year in review

It seems that every other post consists of me apologizing about not updating my blog enough, so I’m going to skip that and dive right into the meaty part of the post. (But I really am sorry)

I have several projects in the works for this year, and that is SUPER exciting to me. Through winter and into spring, I’m basically releasing a new story every month, and I hope to keep up that pace as well as my muse will allow. :D For two years now I’ve been defined by the “Anything He Wants” series, and while yes, there is one more story for Lucy/Jeremiah left (AND Lucas, don’t think I forgot him!), I’m also looking to branch out into new territories. I’ve loved New Adult stories since before I knew what that was, and this April I have my very first coming out. I’m also a biker, and the recent surge in motorcycle club romances makes my inner biker chick wanna dance for joy.

How does 2014 break down in the way of releases? Well, let’s see:

"Unraveled" Snippet 6 – Lauren Hawkeye's "Three Little Words"

Last year, at my first RWA conference, by total chance I met this wonderful lady named Lauren. It was totally by accident: we started talking about the merits of self- and traditional-publishing (me self, she traditional) and just…clicked. Come to find out, she was the same Lauren Hawkeye who would be in the Avon FLING anthology with me, and whose roommates I’d sat down with, also out of the blue, and discussed self-publishing. :D To say it was a small world was an understatement. Since then however, she’s become one of my closest friends (despite the California/Canada divide) and my mentor in all things publishing. So when she asked me to be part of an anthology/boxed set she was putting together, it was a total no-brainer.

Taken By Storm

I’m SO pleased to have Opal Carew featured on my blog! Opal has been in the business for years but I only just got to meet her this year at RWA. What a LOVELY lady, and a kickass writer who I can’t believe is in the “Unraveled” boxed set with us. :D I’d also like to say thank you to everyone who’s Tweeted, Facebooked, and reviewed our little endeavor. “Unraveled” is performing well, slowly rising up the various charts and gaining traction. I *SO* appreciate your efforts to get the word out and heart you all SO BIG!!!!
