'Flutter' by Melissa Andrea Blog Tour: Excerpt, Author Interview & Giveaway!

Sara's life is forever changed -
 Waking up, buried & hidden deeply in the last place anyone would want to be, will do that. She is determined to find out how she ended up there & why, but when the only person who can help her, continuously lies to her, she finds herself forced to suffer alone. She can't ignore the strange things that begin to happen to her nor can she hide from the nightmares that haunt her sleep. And when her world collides with Adan - the mysterious boy whom she can't seem to stay away from, literally - she is consumed by the flutter that sparks whenever he is around and she is desperate to discover the reason why.
But the biggest discovery will come from the secret of what she is…
Adan’s mission to find Sara has finally begun -
 It seemed simple: bring her back to the enchanted world that lives, breathes and survives because of her, but he quickly finds himself faced with an entirely new challenge. Immediately, Adan realizes that staying unknown to Sara is a task he will fail before he even begins; the pull to her is far too strong to refuse, and being with her will defy the very reason he existed. He was the key to her survival and loving her was not part of the path that he had been born to follow. Can he find it in himself too resist the urge to be with her and follow through with their destiny or will he destroy everything that had been left to Sara to protect and defend -
And the kingdom she is unaware she rules…
As Sara and Adan struggle to overcome their own separate battles -
There is a far more determined evil that is stalking the shadows and waiting to annihilate them both.
Sara will figure out that not everything is what it seems and knowing what she can and can not trust will be the key to finding out the truth of what happened to her, the reason why she was buried alive and who she really is…
Sara and Adan will discover  why she was the reason he existed and why he would be the reason she survived & together they will fight to change the rules and rewrite their fate.
Discover the Meaning,
Discover the Secret,

And now an excerpt from Flutter

“I’m a big girl Adan. I knew what I was doing.” I looked at him through my eyelashes.
“And what were you doing?” he asked.
“Playing with fire.”
“Me, being the fire?”
“You, being my fire.” I looked up at him coyly, waiting for his reaction.
I heard the low growl rumble through his chest, and his eyes blazed a stormy blue.
“You have no idea, how much I like the sound of that.”

And here is our interview with Melissa Andrea!

Thanks much for chatting with us Mel, we really appreciate it!
*Can you start off by telling us a little about yourself?
I’m a Taurus, which means I am very stubborn haha! I love in Arizona with my husband and 3 beautiful daughters. I am the oldest of 3 kids and my mom is my super hero! I love being outdoors, I love my family & I love writing!
*What inspired you to write ‘Flutter’?
I’ve always liked writing, and last year I finally decided it was time to do something about that. I read Amanda Hocking’s Tryelle Series and loved that she did something different. So I started researching and… found nothing haha! It took a while to come up with the idea for Flutter, but my inspiration for Flutter, came from my daughters!
*Who was your favorite author as a child?
Honestly, she isn’t an author, but my mom! She use to make up bedtimes stories for my, my brother, and sister. I loved everyone and can still remember some of them to this day, which is saying a lot because I have a bad memory haha!
*What do you consider ‘perfect’ writing conditions?
My couch, my laptop and the music player on my phone! Usually between the hours of 10pm-4am! I get a lot of my writing done when everyone is in bed.
*When did you know you wanted to be an author?
I wrote my first romance book in High School, but honestly, it wasn’t until I decided to write Flutter that I knew I could become one if I wanted too! & I did want too.
*What is the best book you’ve read this year?
I’m embarrassed to say this, but I haven’t read a FULL book this year! I’ve been so busy with a newborn and trying to finish Flutter, I haven’t had anytime to read, but I have started a few good books. Sovereign Hope by Frankie Rose and Touching Smoke by Airicka Phoenix!
*If you could spend a day with any literary character, who would you choose and what would you do?
So I’m going to have to say… Jacob Black! Not sure what we would do, but I know what we wouldn’t do and that is jumping off cliffs!
*What dessert can you not turn down?
Chocolate! It doesn’t matter what kind it is! I LOVE all chocolate!!
*What kind of music do you enjoy?
I listen to pretty much everything, except hard metal! I have a very weird playlist right now, but I have been listening to some country and One Direction haha. Yes they are a boy band, but I like them!
*What’s next for you?
Good question. I am just going to take it one month at a time! Right now I am trying to get through finishing Flutter and getting to the release day! What I hope to accomplish finishing three or more books for next year, but she shall see!
Thank you so much again, we can’t wait to read ‘Flutter’!

I find it hard to sum up my life in a paragraph, but I’ll try.
               Reading has always been a passion for me, and writing as instinctive as breathing. Every inhale is an idea; every exhale a creation. Flutter will be my debut release, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! The only thing I do better than writing you ask? Making beautiful girls. My daughters will always be my greatest accomplishment.
I was born in Denver, Colorado –but I will always think of sunny Arizona as my home. I don’t have a big family, but I’m close with my sister, brother & my mom. My mom is my hero, my inspiration, and I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing person to be raised by.
4 things you should know about me: I’m very girly, but I can get down and dirty with the best of them. I adore the color pink, I love things that sparkle (including vampires) and I like even numbers (hence 4 things about me, not 5).
