If I Were You (Inside Out Trilogy, #1)

Here's the blurb from Goodreads:

Fifty Shades of Grey meets Basic Instinct

Book 1: If I Were You
Book 2: Being Me
Book 3: Revealing Us


How it began…

One day I was a high school teacher on summer break, leading a relatively uneventful but happy life. Or so I told myself. Later, I’d question that, as I would question pretty much everything I knew about me, my relationships, and my desires. It all began when my neighbor thrust a key to a storage unit at me. She’d bought it to make extra money after watching some storage auction show. Now she was on her way to the airport to elope with a man she barely knew, and she needed me to clear out the unit before the lease expires.

Soon, I was standing inside a small room that held the intimate details of another woman’s life, feeling uncomfortable, as if I was invading her privacy. Why had she let these items so neatly packed, possessions that she clearly cared about deeply, be lost at an auction? Driven to find out by some unnamed force, I began to dig, to discover this woman’s life, and yes, read her journals—-dark, erotic journals that I had no business reading. Once I started, I couldn’t stop. I read on obsessively, living out fantasies through her words that I’d never dare experience on my own, compelled by the three men in her life, none of whom had names. I read onward until the last terrifying dark entry left me certain that something had happened to this woman. I had to find her and be sure she was okay.

Before long, I was taking her job for the summer at the art gallery, living her life, and she was nowhere to be found. I was becoming someone I didn’t know. I was becoming her.

The dark, passion it becomes…

Now, I am working at a prestigious gallery, where I have always dreamed of being, and I’ve been delivered to the doorstep of several men, all of which I envision as one I’ve read about in the journal. But there is one man that will call to me, that will awaken me in ways I never believed possible. That man is the ruggedly sexy artist, Chris Merit, who wants to paint me. He is rich and famous, and dark in ways I shouldn’t find intriguing, but I do. I so do. I don’t understand why his dark side appeals to me, but the attraction between us is rich with velvety promises of satisfaction. Chris is dark, and so are his desires, but I cannot turn away. He is damaged beneath his confident good looks and need for control, and in some way, I feel he needs me. I need him.

All I know for certain is that he knows me like I don’t even know me, and he says I know him. Still, I keep asking myself — do I know him? Did he know her, the journal writer, and where is she? And why doesn’t it seem to matter anymore? There is just him and me, and the burn for more

I can't wait to read this!!! It's not out until August 24th. :( I tried to pre-order it from Amazon but it's not listed yet. :(

From Goodreads:

Kathy is an innocent, an outsider who longs to belong somewhere. Anywhere. Dreams of her half-sister Amber and of the centuries old Highgate Vampire are taking her to places she doesn't want to go. Kathy can't stop the sequence of events. If her nightmares and reality collide, the Highgate Vampire will come to take her soul...

On July 8th:

Dead of Night

From Goodreads:

True love . . . and an undying obsession

Catlyn Youngblood has a secret life. Despite being a natural-born vampire hunter like her two older brothers, Cat has fallen for Jesse--an ageless boy from a centuries-old vampire clan.

Cat's job cataloguing rare, mystical texts at a bookstore allows her to meet with Jesse alone every evening. But when girls who look disturbingly similar to Cat start disappearing from town, Cat and Jesse discover frightening clues to their whereabouts within the book collection. Together, they must stop a crazed man from realizing his dark scheme-- one that would claim Cat's life.

dead of night is the second book in the Youngbloods series. After Midnight is the first book. I haven't read either of them yet but the cover of dead of night caught my eye so now I have two more books on my never ending Wishlist.

The Highgate Vampire seems intriguing and I am looking forward to reading it.

A Witch in Love is the second book in the Winter trilogy.  A Witch in Winter is the first book which I have sitting on my TBR shelf still waiting to be read. :(  I love the cover for both books, especially A Witch in Love.

These books sound good to me.  Which books are you waiting for?

Guest Post/ Interview: Author Kersten Kelly

ec·o·nom·ics: a simple twist on normalcy

What is the book about? The book is a unique compilation of examples of pop culture, history, social media, business, sports, and education all explained through an economic lens. It uses current market trends and examples that can be applicable and enjoyable for anyone. It is written in a narrative non-fiction format so it flows easily and does not read similarly to a textbook. Economics is part of daily life, and this book challenges readers to question how and why people make decisions by adding a simple twist on normalcy.

Why did you decide to write it? I love economics, and I majored in it during my undergraduate work at Indiana University. As a student, many of the examples in my textbooks were irrelevant and made the subject one that many students did not enjoy. I wanted to change the negative connotations associated with the topic. I wanted to make it something that people understood and relished learning about.

When was it published? It was published on March 5, 2012.

What did you like about writing this book, and books in general? I like the ability to argue my opinions, compile them in a written publication, and have readers be able to communicate with me via my website and through reviews. There has been nothing more rewarding than working for a year to create a publication that people can pick up and read. I like the idea that someone else can read what I wrote and discuss it with others.

What is the tone of the book? Satire? Humor? Informative? The tone is informative, but it is more narrative. Although it delivers a lot of useful information, it is dissimilar to a textbook.

What do you wish to teach the average reader? I want to shed light on economics as a topic for the average reader. I want them to realize that economics is not just graphs, charts, and theories. It can be applicable in almost any situation. The theories that I explain in the book are developed with multiple examples that readers can relate to. Purchasing gasoline is one of them, and education is another. It is amazing how economic theory can help to explain both.

How can the book help the reader to make better choices? Making a better choice is the absolute essence of economics. Economists strive to be better off in their choices. One of the best examples of this in the book is when I discuss how earning an education can triple an average person’s lifetime income. By making better economic decisions (such as earning a higher education), a reader can learn how to exponentially increase their purchasing power (or financial earnings to buy the things they need). I also discuss how the housing market can either hurt or help individuals in a neighborhood.

Where can the book be bought? The book can be bought on (paperback and Kindle), (paperback only), (eBook only), (all eBook formats), and through the book’s website


What is the name of your publishing company? Talisman Book Publishing LLC

What led you to start your own company? I wanted to make a footprint in the publishing industry, and I believe that the way to do that is to pave my own path. I didn’t want to just accept something “normal”. I read a lot of literature on how some of the rights to a book are forfeited if you use ISBN numbers or other identifiers linking you to other companies. By starting my own, everything is linked back to me.

What do you like to do in your free time? I like to spend time with my family and friends, run local races, snow ski, write books, read, try new restaurants downtown, and hike at some of the best trails in Indiana at Turkey Run State Park. I try to travel internationally as much as possible to places such as Ireland, England, Wales, The Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Iceland, Canada, and most recently India. I love learning about new cultures, trying various foods, and experiencing life in other countries.

What gave you the idea for this particular book? I majored in Economics in my undergraduate work at Indiana University. In all of the textbooks that I read, the examples were so irrelevant that it made it difficult for my peers and me to understand. I wanted to shed some light on the importance and impact of the subject in examples that people would assimilate with.

Are you a full-time writer or part-time, and how do you organize your writing time? I am a part-time writer. It is difficult to balance my time between marketing my written work, writing additional books, and my full-time sales job. I try to squeeze in time whenever it is appropriate to write even a few paragraphs. You never know when you're going to write a masterpiece!

When did you first know you wanted to be a writer? This is something I discuss towards the end of my book. I started writing stories when I was seven. I remember sitting around on Sunday afternoons and instead of relaxing, I was organizing chapters to my latest creation. I was passionate about writing and sharing my work (and still am) as a kid. Luckily, my family and friends were extremely supportive of me and continued to encourage my work.

 What do you hope readers will take from your writing? I hope readers will feel enlightened to "think outside the box" when it comes to their daily routines. Much of what I discuss in the book concerns normal activities that most people don't usually think twice about. I hope that readers can take away that Economics can be a part of their life, and it doesn't have to be all charts and graphs (although, they help explain much of what the subject is).

What types of writing do you prefer, and why? I prefer non-fiction purely because it makes me think the most. After writing and publishing my first book, I can appreciate any type of writing. It is amazing to look at other authors and see the work they are developing. I am always open for a great referral from a friend for a book I "just have to read."

What is the toughest part about being a writer and how do you get past it? Like all writers, I get writer's block where I just cannot think of the next words to fit the page. When this happens, I know that it is time for me to take a break and indulge in some of my other favorite hobbies. It helps if I go for a run, hang out with my friends and family, or go to a sporting event. It helps me to come back to my writing and make it better. It's always good to take breaks and brainstorm off the paper.

What draws you to non-fiction writing? Non-fiction allows me to strategically think about the world in a different way. For my book, Economics is a perfect subject to analyze the world. The style of writing helped me to convey a message and provide an explanation for how certain parts of the economy function.

 What about your book makes it special? It is written as a narrative non-fiction so it is a very quick read and easy to understand. I included examples that almost anyone can relate to. For example, if you've ever purchased a gallon of gas, there is an explanation of how retailers create the extremely volatile prices for that gallon of gas. I wanted to reach a larger scope than just the typical Economics reader/enthusiast. I think anyone can enjoy the message.

Where can people learn more about you and your work? They can follow me on Twitter @KerstenLKelly, the books website (, or on Facebook at

What are your views on self-publishing versus traditional publishing? I think everyone should try to self-publish at least once. This has been one of the hardest and one of the most rewarding experiences I've ever had. I get to be involved in every aspect of the book's progress. It is a lot of work, but it is more than worth the effort and time.

 Any tips for new writers hoping to write non-fiction?

1. Never give up.

2. Challenge yourself.

3. Edit, edit, edit, and edit again.

4. Reach out to other non-fiction authors and ask questions. People are willing to help.

5. Write about a subject you enjoy and that you are passionate about.

I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please leave a comment!

Economics-a simple twist on normalcy

ec·o·nom·ics: a simple twist on normalcy

Here's a synopsis from Goodreads:
Professional football players, corporate tobacco advertisers, volatile gasoline prices, and the Cold War all share an undetected commonality—each is an intrinsic part of economics.

Though not obvious to the naked eye, each entity shares a pattern with the others. This book helps to shed light on these mutual characteristics. It is an extensive compilation of theories interpreted using supportive examples.

Economics is an enthralling science that encompasses our actions, thoughts, and emotional rationality every day in the unconscious. This book dissects economic theory into bite-size, entertaining snippets that anyone can understand and apply to their daily routines. It is a compelling depiction of history, business, pop culture, and social movements intertwined with relevant economic trends. Economics is part of daily life, and this book challenges readers to question how and why people make decisions by adding a simple twist on normalcy.
