January Author Appreciation w/ Giveaway: Happy Birthday, Ada Adams

Author Appreciation was something we used to do every month and unfortunately as we became busier, it fell by the wayside. However, after some discussion, Lana and I decided we really missed shining the spotlight on awesome authors we love. So, we're bringing it back and dare I say it, it will be better than ever. And we're kicking it off in grand fashion with the very lovely and talented birthday girl, Ada Adams.

Ada Adams is the author of the phenomenal Angel Creek series. The series is about vampires, but with a new twist. She has made the vampire genre fun to read again in my opinion, which I honestly didn't think could be done. For that reason alone, I would love her. But I am so far from done.  Along with being one of the sweetest people I've ever encountered, Ada genuinely appreciates her readers. 

We bloggers appreciate her as well, and I have a few messages from some other lovely bloggers who wanted to show some love to Ada on her birthday: 

Happy, Happy Birthday, Ada!!! I hope your day is full of wonderful birthday wishes coming true! Thanks for supporting my blog! You rock my socks off! Cheers! ~Jessy Johnson, BookEnd 2 BookEnd

Happy Birthday Ada! ~Tam's of Tam's Two Cents

Happy Birthday, Ada! ~ Rose from Rose's Book Corner


Happy Birthday, Ada! We are sending lots of happy thoughts your way and we hope you have a magnificent day. Thank you SO much for all you do & most of all, just for being you. Of course, we love you because you brought us Sebastian, too..but we promise that's not the only reason! 





And now we will celebrate Ada's birthday by adding a giveaway! Good luck! This is open internationally!

For those of you who haven't heard of the Angel Creek Series-first of all, what rock have you been hiding under? Secondly, here are the synopses of both books along with the gorgeous covers! 


A simple mission turned deadly.

Nineteen-year-old vampire Dawn has led a sheltered life within the confines of her father’s presidential headquarters. Upon being sent on a mission to revamp four goofy misfits into guardians of a peaceful little town of Angel Creek, Dawn believes that all her dreams have finally come true. What starts off as a simple task, turns into something unexpected, changing Dawn’s life forever and leading the action-loving, thrill-seeking vampire teen on a path of mystery, danger and intrigue.

When a human girl is kidnapped by a group of rogue vamps, Dawn discovers that there is more going on in Angel Creek than meets the eye. And it all connects to Ethan, the cute newcomer who seems too perfect to be true, Sebastian, the mysterious vampire with a turbulent past, and even Dawn herself. Dawn must not only succeed in revamping the troubled recruits, but must also prevent the vampire race from being overtaken by a malevolent villain who has a strange and obsessive fascination with her. As threat escalates, romance blooms, and ghosts from her past begin to surface, Dawn is sure of only one thing: her life will never be the same.

 And here is Book 2:


Becoming a vampire guardian was Dawn Fairchild’s ticket out of the Scarlet House. Fresh off a successful mission, life in Angel Creek should have been great. But when her sort-of-maybe-boyfriend, Sebastian, disappears on a quest to help a beautiful vampire from his past, Dawn finds herself amidst a web of danger, lies, and deceit.

Joining forces with Razor, an enigmatic rebel lacking both a verbal and a physical filter, and her band of Misfits—Brooke, Sophie, Hunter, and Seth—Dawn is thrust into a race against the clock to solve the mystery surrounding brutal Born kidnappings and come to terms with the sudden discovery of her own unique powers. With time ticking away and Born vampires’ lives in jeopardy, it quickly becomes evident that someone—or something—desperately wants Dawn and is willing to shed any amount of blood to get her.

Dawn has only one chance to face her demons and overcome all obstacles standing in her way as she embarks on the biggest mission of her life—one that threatens a deadly outcome for all involved.

Buy ReAwakened

"Many people sing in the shower. I write scenes in my head and act them out."

In her career as a writer and an actress, Ada spends most of her days immersed in imaginary worlds. Much like the characters she enjoys playing and writing about, Ada is a martial artist with a Black Belt in Shotokan Karate. She is also a big proponent of lifelong learning, and has attained a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (it aids in creating characters with unique quirks!) as well as a Masters of Science in Education.

Ada strives to bring a fresh voice and perspective to fiction. She has been writing creatively for many years, and is an editor of a global fashion/literary magazine called VEUX.

She lives in Toronto, Canada, and enjoys adventurous nature hikes with her adorable puppies Cara and Oreo.
