My Otherworldly Novel!

 The Crimson Hunt 
(Eldaen Light Chronicles: Book One)
A new adult sci-fi romance!

College junior Ariel Richmond is working on year three of Project Normalcy.

Her house reeks of keggers past and her bestie is just a slight bit vulgar. But the thing is—they both aid in making life refreshingly uneventful.

So much for hard-earned mediocrity when Luca Grinaldi appears on the scene.

Luca’s sudden presence on campus is hard to ignore. Those bright eyes act like a beacon to unsuspecting females, and with features like his, he’s got to be moonlighting for GQ. Luca hopelessly captivates Ariel with his confidence and charisma, but the mysteries surrounding him make him nearly untouchable. And just when Ariel grows close enough to unlock his secrets, a tragic event sends her life in a downward spiral.

That steady life is no longer an option and allies quickly become scarce. The mysterious Luca seems to be the only one willing to help her—but with that trust comes the burden of his secrets. He has a dark mission of otherworldly proportions, and is willing to sacrifice as many lives as it takes to see it completed.

Gone are the days of simply maintaining normalcy, and if Ariel isn’t cautious with her trust, so soon may be her future.

What reviewers are saying: 

"This was such a neat twist on the paranormal/sci fi storyline! Victoria Smith packs in captivating characters, action-packed thrills, suspense, and a genuinely unique plot into an otherworldly love story that I really enjoyed reading!"

- Erin from  The Autumn Review

"It was nice to dip into a story that had romance & drama but also a touch of the fantastic as well."

- Tavin from The Indie Bookshelf

"A mysterious story with a lonely girl and a mysterious boy who clearly is truly otherworldly, both in hotness and something else  The mystery surrounding Luca was intriguing and very well-played and the story kept me glued to the pages!"

- Danny  @Bewitched Bookworms

Updates on me!

So... The Crimson Hunt was released in November, then two weeks later my holiday novella, Holiday Fling was released. After that... I blinked! That's how fast these last few months have been, so I've decided to give you all a few updates!

Putting out books is a crazy thing, and makes you super busy. I'm also in my last semester of grad school and looking for jobs while looking for houses for when I move back to my hometown this summer. Things are crazy, but life is good and I hope you all had great holidays!

As most of your know, my first contemporary full-length romance, The Space Between, is coming out April 2, BUT you all may be in for an early release... like a super mad crazy earlier release! More details to come.

The Space Between blog tour will still be in April so more updates on that soon. :-)

As of right now, I just sent "Space" to my editor and I'm currently writing the sequel, so fun times ahead. As far as this blog, I plan on writing at least one content post every week so that will start next Monday.

For now...

Enjoy this latest excerpt from The Space Between on The Book Nerd blog! She's got a great one and there is still an ARC of "Space" being given away on Books Over Boys blog.

See you next week!

Cover Reveal: Destiny Gift by Juliana Haygert

It's reveal day for my NA Sister, Juliana Haygert! Check out her cover to her new book made by my designer Okay Creations!

Destiny Gift (Everlast #1) by Juliana Haygert
Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance
Release Date: April 9, 2013

Thirty years in the future, a sinister New York City exists in permanent darkness.

A student at the secured NYU, nineteen-year-old Nadine has visions of Victor Gianni, an imaginary guy she has real feelings for. Afraid of being truly insane, she explains the visions away as simple daydreams, but she can no longer deny them when she bumps into Victor in real life. But this Victor doesn’t know her, and turns her away. After the encounter, Nadine’s visions change to those of eerie fates, gods she’s never heard of, demons with sharp claws they are not too timid to use … and instructions.

To discover if she’s losing her mind, Nadine follows the vague directions—with the real, rude and reluctant Victor—leading to a man who knows it all: Nadine can restore an ancient creed by unveiling the clues on her visions, and bring sunlight and peace to the world again. But that’s only if the demons and the other evil forces behind the darkness don’t stop her first.

About the Author: 

While Juliana Haygert dreams of being Wonder Woman, Buffy, or a blood elf shadow priest, she settles for the less exciting—but equally gratifying—life of a wife, mother, and author. Thousands of miles away from her former home in Brazil, she now resides in Connecticut and spends her days writing about kick-ass heroines and the heroes who drive them crazy.

I'm back and I'm blogging about NA Interracial Romances!

Hey, Friends! I'm very excited today because this is the first content post I've done of 2013! I'm going to try to post at least once a week if I can!

So I thought I'd talk about NA today (since it's what I write ;D), but more specifically interracial romances!!! Why you may ask? Well, my new adult contemporary romance, The Space Between is an Interracial Romance, or IR for short!

My IR Novel!
My heroine, Lacey, is from the West Side of Chicago. She's  biracial (black and white) and rocks a killer pair of pink pumps :D. She also gives her hero Drake, who's from the North Shore of Chicago, a run for his money, which makes for some interesting conflict!

Why did I decide to write a new adult IR? Well, I wanted to write a contemporary about a subject I knew pretty well. I have many friends in IR relationships and I'm in one as well.

With this story, I wanted to share a snapshot into the life of two people from very different worlds, and the things they go through in order to stay together, and well, The Space Between was born.

I also wanted to broaden the range of NA contemporary out there a bit. Interracial romances are very hard to find in any category (YA, NA, or Adult), but I did find a great NA one last year. It was a very unique IR called, I Loved You First by Reena Jacobs.

 This book is about a biracial student who falls for her gay best friend. This book was great and I was so happy to see the scope of NA broadened by it. 

Since then I have searched for more IR's, but couldn't really find much, and also found it hard to find the exact type I was looking for. I wanted a fun, flirty read that at the same time dealt with some serious issues. "Space" was a challenge for me, but I feel I did what I set out to do!

Now I ask you...

Have you read any YA, NA, or Adult interracial romances? 

And what are your general thoughts on why there aren't more of them out there? 

Are there any other issues in any category (YA, NA, or Adult) that could use some more exposure?

Loved to hear your thoughts!
