Release Blitz: DAMAGED by WILLOW WINTERS


Title (Naslov): Damaged
Author (Avtor): Willow Winters 
Genre (Kategorija): Romantic Suspense (napeta romantika)

Release date (Datum izida): November 14th (14. november)


BLURB (OPIS)

I married the bad boy from Brooklyn.
The one with the tattoos and the look in his eyes that told me he was bad news.
The look that comes with all sorts of warnings.
I knew what I was doing.
I knew by the way he put his hands on me; how he owned me with his forceful touch.
I couldn’t say no to him, not that I wanted to. That was then, and it seems like forever ago.
Years later, I’ve grown up and moved on. But he’s still the man I married. Dangerous in ways I don’t like to think about. Sexy as sin, he attracts all the wrong kinds of temptations.
The kind that lands a couple like us in the gossip columns.
The kind that’s unforgivable.
The kind that splits up marriages.
I did this to myself. I knew better than to love him.
And now I’m fucked.
I married the bad boy from Brooklyn. And I don’t know how to survive this.


Poročena sem s slabim fantom iz Brooklyna.
Po telesu je tetoviran, njegov pogled pa mi pove, da prinaša slabe novice.
Njegov pogled mi kaže opozorila.
Vedela sem kaj počnem.
Vedela sem tisti trenutek, ko je name položil roko. Kako me je zasvojil s svojim močnim dotikom.
Nisem mu mogla reči ne, niti nisem želela. To je bilo takrat in zdi se mi, kot da je minila cela večnost.
Čez čas sem odrasla in šla naprej. Ampak on je še vedno moški s katerim sem se poročila. Nevaren, da sploh ne želim razmišljati o tem. Tako pregrešno seksi, da mi privablja različne skušnjave. 
Tako, da pišejo o naju v opravljivih kolumnah.
Tako, da začne najin zakon razpadati.
Sama sem si to storila. Lahko bi storila več, kot samo ljubila. 
In sedaj sem vse pokvarila.
Poročila sem se s slabim fantom iz Brooklyna in zdaj ne vem kako to preživeti.

AUTHOR (AVTOR)

WILLOW WINTERS is so happy to be a USA Today, Wall Street Journal and #1 Contemporary Bestselling Romance author. She likes her action hot and her bad boys hotter. She certainly doesn't hold back on either one in her writing! 
Willow started writing after having her little girl, Evie, December 2015. All during her pregnancy with Evie she continued to read and she only wanted to read romance. She was reading a book a day — sometimes two.
In January 2016 Willow was staying up late with Evie and just thinking of all these stories. They came to her constantly so she finally sat down and just started writing. She always wanted to do it so she figured, why not? Today Willow cannot be happier for making that decision!

WILLOW WINTERS je zelo srečna, ker je pristala med najbolj prodajanimi pisatelji sodobnih ljubezenskih romanov. Rada ima vroče akcije in še bolj vroče poredne fante. Vsekakor tega pri pisanju ne skriva. 
Willow je začela pisati, ko je rodila svojo deklico Evie, decembra 2015. Celotno nosečnost je nadaljevala z branjem knjig, brati pa je želela samo romance. Prebrala je knjigo na dan, včasih celo dve.
Januarja 2016 je ostajala pozno pokonci zaradi Evie in razmišljala o zgodbah. Zgodbe so se ji pojavljale v glavi, zato se je odločila, da začne pisati. Vedno si je to želela, zato si je rekla, zakaj pa ne. Danes ne more biti bolj srečna kot je, ker se je tako odločila.

#HalloweenGoesPostal

V jeseni sem sodelovala v mednarodni izmenjavi knjig v aplikaciji Litsy z naslovom #HalloweenGoesPostal. Prijavili smo se v začetku septembra in imeli do začetka oktobra čas, da pošljemo svoj paket. Navodila so bila, da pošlješ 2 do 3 knjige (rabljene ali nove) plus dodatke, ki so povezane s knjigami ali druge (izbereš si lahko sam). Imeli smo temo Halloween. Poleg Haloween teme si lahko izbiral še med temami grozljivo, čokoladno ali presenečenje. Sama sem izbrala presenečenje in čokoladno. Paket me je zelo presenetil. Na email dobiš podatke o svojem Halloween izbrancu. Preden izbiraš knjige in dodatke za svojega "izbranca", zasleduješ njegov Litsy profil. Vidiš katere knjige še ni prebral, katere je prebral, katere ima na TBR-ju... Medtem tudi sam objavljaš in posodabljaš svoj profil, da tudi tvoj Halloween izbranec vidi tvoje objave. Lahko v objave tudi zapišeš, da obožuješ čokolado, kavo ali čaj...in podobno. Lahko zapišeš kakšno svojo lastnost ali navado. Izbiraš si sam.
Preden paket pošlješ, objaviš sliko na Litsy in dodaš hashtag #HallowenGoesPostal in #FallBookExchange. Enako narediš, ko prejmeš svoj paket in nato ponovno, ko ga odpreš.


31.oktobra 2017 smo vsi odprli svoje pakete. Z velikim navdušenjem smo objavljali slike in spremljali objave svojih.
Moj paket je prišel šele predzadnji teden v oktobru in sem bila kar malo živčna ali bo prišel oz. kdaj bo prišel. V drugi polovici oktobra sem ga že nestrpno pričakovala😊Prišli so trije paketi zlepljeni skupaj, kar mi je še oteževalo, da sem čakala celi zadnji teden do 31. oktobra, ko sem ga lahko odprla. Napetost in presenečenje pri meni sta naraščala. Moja Halloween izbranka je bila tokrat Slovenka. Kar me je še bolj presenetilo in tega sploh nisem pričakovala. Vsi smo seveda svoje izdelke tudi primerno zavili. Na zgornji sliki vidite, kako lepo zavita darilca sem dobila. Tako lepo, da mi jih je bilo kar žal odpreti. 


Dobila sem dve 300 gramski čokoladi Milki, Toffee Ganznuss in Noisette (ki je moja najljubša). Na sliki vidite tudi pravo kavo iz Etiopije (pokrajina Sidamo). Diši enako kot ostale kave. Če jo primerjam z barcaffee, je okus enaki, samo malo bolj sladkast. Kot da bi barcaffee sladkal. Jaz namreč pijem grenko. Zraven je bil kovinski lonček za kavo z motivom Kekca. V otroštvu sem rada pogledal filme o Kekcu in enkrat sem prebrala tudi knjige. Bil je moj priljubljeni otroški junak.


V paketu je bila oranžna puščica za svinčnike. Notri so bili navadni svinčnik in trije kemični svinčniki (dva črna in en rdeč). Zraven je bil mali črtni zvezek na spiralo s črnimi naslovnicami, na kateri je zapisano Vesolje idej. V vsaki knjigi je bila ena kartica z pozitivno motivacijsko mislijo: And all was good, Daydreamer, Enjoy what the day brings, Do what you do, Now is the right time, More of what you love, Let's make time for all the things we want to do, Perfect in our imperfection, Never wake me when I am smiling. Knjižna kazalka je delo Brlogarke. Zaprta knjiga na kateri je zrno kave. Ravno prava zame.😊


In seveda najpomembnejše za konec😊 Pričakovala sem dve do tri knjige, kar je bilo napovedano v opisu izmenjave, dobila pa sem devet knjig. Bilo je VELIKO presenečenje. In kar zavpila sem, ko sem odpirala paket. Res nisem pričakovala vsega tega. Tri knjige so bile v angleškem jeziku, šest pa v slovenskem. 
Kraljevska strast (Geneva Lee) je romantični roman.
Skrivnosti srečnega življenja (Susan Meissner) je zgodovinski roman.
Vsaj en popoln dan (Jennifer Niven) je mladinski roman.
Žerjavica pod pepelom (Sabaa Tahir) je fantazijski roman in komaj čakam, da ga preberem.
Povabilo (Ruth Ware) je misterij, triler.
Hygge- Danska umetnost srečnega življenja (Louisa Thomsen Brits) je bila v trdi vezavi, gre pa za neko strokovno literaturo o danski umetnosti življenja.
The Hate You Give (Angie Thomas) je mladinski roman, ki je izšel letos in ima dve Goodreads nominaciji.
At the Water's Edge (Sara Gruen) je zgodovinski romantični roman, ki ga imam že dolgo na TBRju.


Največje presenečenje pa je sledilo na koncu. Nova knjiga Johna Green, ki je komaj izšla in je že dobila Goodreads nominacijo za najboljši mladinski roman. Turtles All the Way Down je mladinski roman. Knjiga je v trdi vezavi in je posebna izdaja (Special Edition), ki jo je bilo mogoče naročiti samo v pred izdaji. Zraven je še zapestnica. To je bilo res največje presenečenje in imela sem solze sreče v očeh. Res sem se knjige razveselila. Zraven sem dobila še tole prelepo voščilnico v kateri je bilo pismo moje pošiljateljice.


Za konec vam še pokažem kaj sem kupila za svojo izbranko v UK.
-His Bloody Project (Graeme Magrae Burnett) kriminalni roman po resničnih dogodkih
-A Poem Like A Waterdrop Shimmers pesniška zbirka 
-Pobarvanka za odrasle v obliki kartic
-3 barvice
-čokolada Milka Noisette
-2 čajni vrečki Tea for two
-2 jesenski knjižni kazalki pobarvanka
-svečka vosek Welcome Home 
-večnamenska vrečka iz blaga Happy Halloween
-razglednica Novo mesto

Series Reveal: SINS & SECRETS SERIES by WILLOW WINTERS


Title (Naslov): Sins & Secrets Series
Author (Avtor): Willow Winters 
Genre (Kategorija): Romantic Suspense (Napete romantike)


BLURB(OPIS)

Love is inexplicable. It makes you do crazy things. Love is blind… that’s a saying for a reason, isn’t it?

If anyone ever heard my story, they’d say what I did was wrong.

Even my closest friends. They wouldn’t understand. No one would.

But even my friends have sins and secrets of their own. Their stories would send chills down your spine and make you think twice about just how powerful love can be. How corrupt… how deadly.

I’ll do what I do best as an author. I’ll write my tale, but they aren’t safe. I won’t let them judge me without having their own dark stories unveiled as well.

I’ll write it all down and put a pretty little bow on it.

The Sins and Secrets Series of Duets is here.

with love, 

Jules (Imperfect, Sins and Secrets Series book 1)


Ljubezen je nerazložljiva. Pripravi te do tega, da počneš neumnosti. Ljubezen je slepa...to se reče z nekim razlogom, kajne?

Če bi kdo slišal mojo zgodbo, bi rekli, da sem stvari počel napačno.

Celo moji bližnji prijatelji. Ne bi me razumeli. Nihče me ne bi.

Ampak tudi moji prijatelji imajo svoje grehe in skrivnosti. Njihove zgodbe ti poženejo mraz na koži in ti dajo misliti kako močna je lahko ljubezen. Kako nepoštena...kako smrtonosna.

Vse bom dal od sebe kot pisatelj. Pisal bom moje zgodbe, vendar niso varne. Ne bom dovolil, da me sodijo, dokler ne razkrijejo svojih temačnih zgodb.

Vse jih bom zapisal in jim dodal majhno lepo mašno.

Dueti v zbirki Grehov in Skrivnosti so tukaj.

Z ljubeznijo,

Jules (Imperfect, Sins & Secrets Series 1. knjiga)

Title (Naslov): Darkest Temptation
Author (Avtor): Rachel Van Dyken 
Genre (Kategorija): paranormal romance (paranormalna romantika)

Publishing date (Datum izida): October 31th, 2017 (31. oktober 2017)


SYNOPSIS (OPIS)

I'm a werewolf King who chose to step down out of grief for my mate.
For centuries I've been alone, choosing to live a life of modesty despite the wealth surrounding me.
I deserve to be punished.
I crave things I have no business craving.
And it is manifesting itself in a way I'm terrified I won't be able to control any longer.
Especially since she arrived.
Vampire. Orphan. Beaten beyond recognition.
My blood calls to her in a way that makes no sense.
I'm a wolf.
She's a vampire.
The two don't mate.
They barely tolerate one another.
All it takes is one slip of control on my part — one taste.
And I doom us all.
Then again, I never knew what is lurking inside has the power to balance good and evil.



Jaz sem kralj volkodlakov, ki se je odločil, da bo nehal žalovati za svojo partnerico.
Stoletja sem bil sam. Odločil sem se živeti skromno, kljub vsemu bogastvu, ki me je obkrožalo.
Zaslužim si biti kaznovan.
Hrepenel sem po stvareh katerih ne bi smel.
Videl sem se prestrašenega, ker sem se bal, da se ne bi mogle več kontrolirati.
Še posebej, ko je prispela ona.
Vampir. Sirota. Ožgana od sonca do prepoznavnosti.
Moja kri jo je želela, kar ni imelo smisla.
Jaz sem volk.
Ona je vampirka.
Ta dva nista za skupaj.
Ta dva se komaj preneseta.
Iz moje strani je bil potreben samo en trenutek - en okus.
In pogubil sem nas vse.
Potem nisem več vedel, ali tisto kar skrivam v sebi ima moč uravnotežiti dobro in zlo.


EXCERPT (ODLOMEK)


The air around me thickened with a sweet-smelling fog. I inhaled and closed my eyes, allowing my baser instincts to take over. 
“Wolf.” She whispered my name. 
I sniffed. The voice was not familiar. It was not my mate. It was… other. 
“Wolf,” she beckoned again. 
Branches crunched beneath my feet as I made my way closer to the sweet scent, closer to the warmth, closer to what I should have been running from. 
I was already mated. 
And yet — I was being pulled. 
Like a siren’s song. 
I hated sirens.
Every last one of them. 
But only the strongest were male. 
This — I sniffed the air again as ecstasy took over — this was no male. 
This was all female. 
The instinct to protect kicked in, forcing a surge of adrenaline through my limbs as I staggered toward the trees. 
Green eyes blinked through the fog. 
I stilled. 
My breath caught. 
Vampire. 
I frowned, reaching for her. 
“Kiss me, Wolf.” 
Why was I tempted? 
Why did I want to touch this being? 
When every hair stood on end like she was foe not friend. When I had a mate back home that I loved more than life itself. 
Confusion warred with disgust, and then the vampire stood on her tiptoes and pressed her cheek against mine, the way my people greeted. 
But she was no wolf. 
Her lips grazed the outside of my ear before she bit down onto my neck… 
I jerked awake. Sweat pooled the bed like I’d just taken a shower. 
And my mate, the one I was so convinced would be lying right next to me, was gone. 
She’d been gone. 
Over a hundred years.  
And every year, like clockwork, on the anniversary of her death. 
I saw my vampire. 
She bit me. 
And I woke up with a bruise on my neck as if it were real.

SYNOPSIS (OPIS)

For the last five years, Fawn has been the star soprano of a secluded opera house, forced to sing for her kidnapper.
His daughter, Devi, waits patiently in the shadows, hiding a face so horrible that no one who’s seen it will look at it again.
As Fawn plots her escape, whispers spread through the shaded corridors of dark sorcery, warning her that she must flee by the next opening night.
But when Fawn draws close to the exit, it’s Devi who’s standing in her way, leading Fawn to suspect that Devi has something to gain if she fails.
(a dark reimagining of Swan Lake)


Zadnjih pet let je bila Fawn zvezda soprana oddaljene operne hiše, kjer je bila prisiljena peti za svojega ugrabitelja.
Njegova hči Devi je potrpežljivo čakala za sencami. Svoj obraz je skrivala, ker ko jo kdo pogleda, je ne bi videl nikoli več.
Ko Fawn snuje svoj pobeg, so ji skozi zasenčen koridor s temno čarovnijo šepetalci sporočili, da mora bežati do naslednje otvoritvene noči.
Ko Fawn končno prispe do izhoda, se ji nasproti postavi Devi. Misli, da bo nekaj pridobila, če ji ne uspe pobegniti.

EXCERPT (ODLOMEK)


Frosty air nips at my nose. I stand almost knee deep in fresh fallen snow, letting the diffused sunlight hit my face. There is no sound. Peace settles over me. In this moment, I truly feel like I’m in the middle of nowhere.
Something cold and wet explodes on the back of my neck. For a moment, I fear the worst. A boil. Pus. My father’s description of my mother’s face plays out in my mind.
But then I hear Andrew laughing behind me. I touch the rough skin on my neck and bring a shaky and damp glove to my face. Snow. It’s just snow.
It’s the middle of the day, and my face is uncovered. To make everything worse, it’s bright outside. Freezing and overcast, but bright.
My hands fly to my face automatically.
“Are you going to let me get away with that?” Andrew laughs again.
I twist around and peek at him through my fingers.
He stands before me, his arms spread wide. A thick coat covers his arms, and in his gloved hands, he holds another snowball. “You have two seconds to stop me!”
I flip my hood over my head and drop down to gather snow in my hands.
Another snowball bursts against my head. The wetness plasters my hair to my face. I hurl my deformed ball in his direction. It misses him completely.
Another wad of snow lands on my neck while I gather a larger, rounder ball of snow. “Cheating!” I throw my handful at him. It lands weakly by his knees.
“Here, let me help you.” He climbs towards me and gathers a nice, solid ball in his fist. He hands this to me, and then stands back and spreads his arms wide again. “Try again.”
I throw it square at his nose.
“Ow!” He covers his face and cries out dramatically. “It’s in my eyes!”
“Stop it! Are you serious?” I navigate closer to him, and he falls back into the snow. I run to his side and hear laughter bubbling out from behind his hands. “Jerk!” I shovel snow over his body, and he laughs all the while.
Then he goes still. I stop.
“Andrew?” I lean in close. “Andrew?”
He lunges out of his shallow grave and tackles me to the ground.
A panicked scream leaves my body as he lands on top of me, heavy and warm. Then a strange sound comes out of my mouth. Something that’s never come out of it before. Laughter.
His braid hangs down, inches from my sunken cheek. Suddenly aware of how close his head is to mine, the laughter dies in my throat, and I slap my gloves to my cheeks.
“You have such beautiful eyes,” he says.
My breath is trapped in my chest. It hurts. I don’t know how much he can see of my face—my hood is pulled low and my hair and hands cover everything else—but I fear it’s too much.
“Andrew . . .”

INTERVIEW (INTERVJU)

Why paranormal and what other genres are you interested in writing?
I’ve always been drawn to dark stories. Some of my first memories are of me trying to scare myself for some reason. Haha. My writing tastes have always been a lot more narrow than my reading tastes. But I would like to experiment with some dark historical fantasy and supernatural horror. I might talk myself into trying another high fantasy story one day.

Zakaj paranormalne zgodbe? Ali vas pritegnejo še kateri drugi žanri?
Vedno sem bila za temačne zgodbe. Eden mojih prvih spominov je, kako sem sama sebe strašila. Haha. Moj pisalni okus je bil vedno bolj omejen, kot moj bralni okus. Želim si eksperimentirati z temačno zgodovinsko fantazijo in nadnaravno grozljivko. Mogoče se bom prepričala in nekoč napisala visoko fantazijsko zgodbo. 

If you were a teacher, what subject would you teach?
Shakespearean Drama! But I’d also be happy to do plain Shakespeare or plain Drama. Either one of those would be most up my alley. If a class existed that was dedicated to Edgar Allan Poe, I’d also be interested in that.

Če bi bili učiteljica, kateri predmet bi učili?
Shakespearsko dramo! Srečna bi bila tudi z navadnim Shakespearom ali navadno dramo. Eno izmed teh dveh bi bil moj zagon. Če bi bil razred navdušen nad Edgarjem Allanom Poemo, bi bila tudi zadovoljna.

If you could live in any novel, which one would you choose and why?
Is it weird if I say I want to live in Middle Earth? I read The Hobbit a long time ago, but I’ve only recently watched all the movies, and I’m obsessed with them! I hate the thought of giant spiders and trolls and orcs, but I wouldn’t leave Hobbiton anyway, and I think I’d love it there. Also, no creatures there. Bonus. (I mean, if Gandalf was with me, I might could be talked into going on an adventure.)

Če bi lahko živeli v romanu, katerega bi izbrali in zakaj?
Ali bi bilo čudno, če povem, da bi želela živeti v Srednjem svetu? Že dolgo časa nazaj sem prebrala Hobbita, pred kratkih pa sem pogledala še filme in postala obsedena z njim. Sovražim orjaške pajke, trole in orke, ampak vseeno ne bi zapustila Hobbitona. Mislim, da bi mi bilo tam všeč. Seveda brez bitij. Plus. (Samo če bi bil Gandalf z mano, bi se dala prepričati, da bi odšla na pustolovščino.)

Are you a plotter, panster, or hybrid writer?
I often pants the beginnings of stories or pants my outline as I write, but I always have a clear plan and direction I’m going in. That said, I have to have a finished outline at some point. It helps me remember little details better, and I write faster with one, as well.

Ali si zarotniški, panster* ali hibridni pisatelj?
Zgodbo začnem spontano, ali pa si zapišem osnutek. Ko pišem naprej, imam vedno jasen načrt in navodila. Se pravi, da najprej dokončam osnutek do neke točke. Ta mi pomaga, da si bolje zapomnim določene detajle ter da hitreje pišem.
(*panster pomeni pisatelj, ki nima nič, niti osnutka in si za vsako sproti izmišljuje dogajanje zgodbe. Nisem zasledila slovenskega izraza za tole besedo.)

What is your mutant power?
Freezing everything! Don’t ask what for. I have a long-standing fantasy of water manipulation, and I would just love that. In my head, it’s like a cross between Ice Man and Storm. Ice Storm anyone? No?

Kaj je vaša posebna moč?
Zamrzujem vse! Ne sprašujte me zakaj. Z veseljem bi imela dolgoletno fantazijsko manipulacijo vode. V moji glavi si to predstavljam kot križanca med Ledenim možem in Nevihto. Ledena nevihta? Ne?

What three movies would you take to a deserted island to watch over and over again for a year?
Easiest question ever. The Little Mermaid, Clueless, and The Craft. They are my favorite top three movies of all time, but I feel sorry for anyone who knows me after returning from such a trip. I have a really bad habit of quoting movies, and I’d likely have them all completely memorized by then.

Katere tri filme bi vzeli na samotni otok, da bi jih gledali vedno znova?
Najlažje vprašanje. Majhna morska deklica, Nimaš pojma in The Craft. To so moji najljubši filmi vseh časov. Bogi tisti, ki me bodo poznali po vrnitvi iz samotnega otoka. Imam namreč slabo navado, da si zapomnim citate iz filmov.

What inspired you to write WINTER’S SIREN?
Usually, this is the hardest question ever, but I love fairy tales, I love retellings, and I love the theatre: ballet, musicals, opera. My love of theatre directly influenced the direction of this story. You don’t want to know what it looked like before.

Kaj vas je navdihnilo, da ste napisali WINTER'S SIREN?
To je najtežje vprašanje, kar sem jih dobila. Obožujem pravljice, obožujem retelling* in obožujem gledališča: balet, muzikal, opero. Moja ljubezen do gledališča je imela velik vpliv na nastanek te zgodbe. Ne želite si vedeti kakšna je bila prej.
(*retelling je ponoven zapis ali priredna neke zgodbe, knjige, pravljice, filma)
