1. Can you tell us a little about your book? 
My book, simply put, is about mermaids and magic. I’ve had this idea of a mermaid who didn’t quite fit in with the rest of her people coming down to shake things up rolling around in my head since highschool. I wanted the main character to flawed, as we all are and relatable. Essentially the overarching arc of this series is the ultimate good versus evil, but there will be many twists and turns throughout. 

2. What inspires you to write?
Oddly enough, it is something I’ve always done. Since I was a child. Journaling, adolescent poetry, hell I even enjoyed some of my college papers. It’s a stress reliever for me and the stories I create are ones I escape to in my head and so I am so passionate about putting them out there. Though that is scary too because I’m essentially handing you all my brain baby. 

3. Do you have a special time to write or how is your day structured?
So I work a full time job 8-5 and I have a toddler so most of my writing is done on my breaks, during my lunch hour, and at night. But I am typically a night owl so that tends to work in my favor. 

4. Do you have a favorite food or drink you must have nearby when writing?
COFFEE....and sometimes tea 

5. Do you have a favorite spot to write?
So I actually “write” on my phone through google docs for my first drafts! It’s small enough my kid can’t poke at it and I can hide it from her. When i actually use my laptop i like to write in my bed. I even bought a special pillow and lap desk for it! Though the goal is to have enough space for an actual desk one day. I’ve also romanticized the idea of writing on the beach with a good cup of coffee in the early morning. 
 
6. If your fairy godmother waved her wand and whisked you away to the location of your choice, which place would you choose, and why?
Scotland! It’s where a lot of my family roots are and I’ve always been fascinated with the culture and climate. 

7. What are writing projects are you currently working on?
So I am currently working on book 1 of my next series. Moonbeams & Wolf Dreams: Children of Selene. I am also work on Seven Seas Book 2 and I have two other series in the early planning stages.

Review by Gia:
Between the Raindrops was a great read.   It was an emotional read with it's ups and down.   Scout has had it tough.  Her father passed away and her mom is a drug addict.   I thought when her mom gets arrest and she goes to live with her uncle (who's a Dr.) everything was going to start to be great for her  but it's not.  Scout does meet two amazing twins, Wyatt and Zoie.  Zoie and Scout hit it off right away and Scout could really use a friend so that was perfect.  Wyatt on other hand for a brief moment comes off jerky but that's totally not how he is.   While Zoie and Scout become friends, Scout and Wyatt become more than friends.  With her relationships with peers her age goign good she's still not save from her home life.  Scout is a really strong likable character.  I was really rooting for her to get her happiness.

Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense, Thriller
An arctic blast is coming…
Fleeing to the wintry town of Caribou was always meant to be temporary,

would bring me face to face with my future.

I’m left looking over my shoulder, watching and waiting,

So here I am, more afraid than ever before.

Release Blitz for The Sinister Silhouette by Alex Grayson


IT'S LIVE!

“Luca….”

She whispers my name at night, filling my dreams with her haunting beauty. Her tormented amber eyes beg me for something I don’t understand, and her agonizing pain becomes my own.

For years, she’s come to me, calling my name.

For years, I’ve never known who she was.

Until now….








Wow this book was a great read.  This was my first read by Alex Grayson so, I didn't know what to expect.  This one was a page turner right from the beginning.   Luca is a good guy.  He doesn't come from money but knows the value and importance of family.   He has dreams of a girl that calls his name.  He doesn't know this girl or what she wants of him.  If his dream aren't weird enough he actually see the woman who haunts his dreams.    That's where the story gets twisty and suspenseful.  It's the type of book that had me at the edge of my seat.  This one has some ups and downs and some omg moments.  I was hooked from beginning to end. 


5 Amazeballs Stars!








“LUCA….”
The willowy feminine voice comes from behind me. I slowly turn my head first, then the rest of my body and look for the source.
Blackness. Pure and absolute. That’s all I see. Except for the tiny twinkling lights. There’s a shit ton of them. It reminds me of the times I would spend the summers with my aunt and uncle out in the country. As a kid, I would always sneak out at night and lie on the roof when the sky was clear and the moon wasn’t visible. It was my favorite time of the month, because everything was so dark, except for the stars. I’d lie out there for hours and just watch them twinkle, every so often catching one that soared across the black sky.
These aren’t stars, it isn’t a moonless sky, and I don’t fucking like this. These tiny sparks of light float right in front of me, all around me, almost like glowing specks of dust.
“Lucccaaaa….”
Warm air whispers across my ear, and I spin, expecting to find someone behind me, and still see nothing but those damn flecks of light. Squinting, I try to look past them and the darkness to see something. Any fucking thing.
Frustration grows in my stomach when nothing appears.
“Who in the hell are you?” I yell, anger deepening my voice into a growl.
My ears strain as I listen closely. All I hear is my own breathing and the slight pounding in my ears from my heartbeat. The beat only gets louder with my mounting aggravation.
“Luca.”
This time, the voice sounds rushed. It’s still whispered softly, but not the slow calling of the other two times. It’s urgent. There’s an echo too. It comes from behind me, but the echo drifts around me from every direction.
I tip my head back and snarl to the… ceiling? The sky? I have no fucking clue. “What in the hell do you want from me?”
Not expecting an answer, because I didn’t get one to my previous question, I’m surprised when the voice comes again. It’s close. So close, it almost seems like the words aren’t spoken out loud, but are just somehow in my head.
“I need you.”
My brows slash down into a frown. There’s pain in the softly spoken words, and for some reason I don’t like the emotion coming from the voice. Something sharp pierces my chest, like a dull blade slowly being sunk into my sternum, taking my breath away. I rub the spot, not understanding why the pain is there, but knowing it’s caused by the agony in the woman’s voice.
“Where are you?” My tone is gruff from the stinging ache.
“Here,” she whispers.
I whip around and still see nothing but the twinkling lights. I reach out, hoping that even if I can’t see anything, I can feel something. It’s so dark I can’t even see my hand in front of me, only the tiny lights floating by in a rush at my hurried movement.
One catches my eye off in the distance about fifteen feet from me, and I hone in on it. It’s slightly bigger than the rest. I take a step forward, then stop when it begins to grow. It doesn’t get brighter; the luminosity stays the same. It’s just the size that changes. Actually, it looks like the light is dimming the bigger it gets. Like it’s no longer a light, but a fog-like substance.
It stretches longways, getting greater and greater. I start moving toward it, but no matter how many steps I take, the same distance stays between it and me.
Something starts to form in the haze. I squint, not really sure what it is, because it’s almost transparent now. It’s still growing, but the bigger it gets, the more it loses its solidness.
A face.
I can barely make it out through the haze, but it’s a woman. Her features become clearer, but the more the face forms, the more it fades as well.
I take a couple of steps forward, then jerk to a halt when I remember it does me no good.
“Fuck,” I mutter.
What in the hell is this shit?
“Lucaaaa….”
The voice whispers again, and I know it’s from the translucent vision, but the lips don’t move.
The face becomes a face and shoulders, then face, shoulders, arms, and torso. Her hair flows around her, moving slowly, like it’s floating in water.
She looks at me, and the stark pain in her eyes almost has me staggering back with the force of it.
I really don’t fucking like that look. And I really don’t fucking know why. I’ve never seen the woman before. She doesn’t even look vaguely familiar. Why in the hell would her pain be my pain?
“Who are you?” I demand.
Again, her lips don’t move, but I still hear the voice inside my head. “Come to me, Luca. I need you.”
Before I have the chance to react to her words, something happens. I tense as swarms of the nearby glowing dust infuse the mist of the woman. Her crystalline appearance starts to solidify. Her face and the upper half of her body become more visible. Her hair, which up until that point was colorless, is a deep, rich brown. It’s long, flowing to the middle of her back. Her eyes are light brown, but not an ordinary brown. They’re an unusual golden amber. I’m not sure if it’s because of her noncorporeal appearance or if that’s their natural color, but they seem to glow.
More specks of dust penetrate the woman’s form, and the more that rushes in, the brighter she gets.
She lifts her arm, as if reaching out to me, and before it registers what I’m doing, I reach out to her.
When I take a step closer, the light surrounding her shimmers brighter. This time I’m able to shorten the gap between us. I take another step, and it seems to glisten even more. I’m tall, so when I take my next step, there’s only a few feet separating us. But the brightness is now almost too much to bear. I have to squint from the sheer brilliance of it.
There’s only inches between the tips of her fingers and mine now. The pain resting in my chest intensifies the closer I get, but it’s as if there’s a force that’s pushing me toward her. Like if I don’t, the pain would be a thousand times worse. I don’t know why, but something inside me says I must go to her.
I hold my breath as the tip of my middle finger touches the glowing tip of hers. Several things happen at once. A low growl resonates deep in the back of my throat, my fingers curl into a fist and my arm drops to my side, and the fierce pain I was experiencing in my chest turns so excruciating I’d swear my heart is spilling out onto the floor at my feet.
The trifecta of feelings happens because the instant my fingertips touch the woman, her form disintegrates. The thousands of pieces of dust that make up her form fall away into space, leaving me once again in complete blackness.
I tip my head back and an angry, pain-filled roar leaves my lips at the loss of something so important.
