Dive into the perfect summer book

If you follow me on any social media, you've probably already heard I have a new book in work for a while. This story wasn't supposed to be written at all but came to me when I needed it the most.

After finishing Forever I've been feeling off when it comes to writing, but then this story came to my mind. Like a hurricane, it grew so much and all I could think about is this story and these characters. It wasn't an option, I had to write it and I'm really happy that I did. I loved every second of it, and can't wait to see what you all think about it too. So, let me present to you ...


Blurb:

Marissa Davenport is just a regular girl living in a small town on Hawaii Island until one fateful night changes everything for her. 
The ocean takes away the boy she loves and to save him, she will risk her own life. 
Now, she has to confront the consequences of her actions. 
The consequence of her choice. 
With the pressure of a dark secret looming over her, Marissa has to figure out how to return things to what they were before or she might lose everything forever.
Her friends, her family, the boy she loves and even her own life.
Some fairy tales are real, they live underwater.

Cover designed by Little Miss Tease



What can you expect?



With this YA fantasy romance story, I'm slowly going back to my roots. Ha! I'm sure you didn't know that, but yeah, when I just started writing as a teen I was writing YA fantasy/paranormal books. I even have two stories written in Croatian. 

What makes Underwater different?


What sets this book apart from my previous ones is that this book will be available for free! Yes, you heard it right. FREE. 
You'll be able to read a new chapter every Friday, starting on Friday, August 3rd, 2018! 
The book will be available on Wattpad, where it will be published completely, until the end. No cliffhangers.
You can find Underwater on Wattpad here.


I do plan to release it traditionally, through Amazon as ebook and paperback, in summer 2019. So if you fall in love with this characters and their story, you'll be able to get this pretty on your shelves too. 
Now you're probably wondering why publish it both through Wattpad for free and on Amazon. First of all, this is a summer book, and I wanted it to be published in the summer. I wasn't sure if I'll be able to finish it on time and do all the other prep that needs to be done between publishing the book and releasing it. Stuff like editing, cover design, marketing etc. Secondly, I didn't want to put the pressure on myself to finish it on time. I don't want writing to be about deadlines and getting the next book out. I want to enjoy the whole process and create stories that make me happy and hopefully will make you happy too. So I just went with the flow and, in the end, I did manage to finish it. There are some other factors that influenced this decision, but these ones are the main reasons. 

I know it can be frustrating, waiting week after week for a new chapter, but I hope you do stick with me until the end and enjoy Underwater to the fullest. I know I did!

Here's another sneak peek of what's to come!


Are you ready to dive in on August 3rd?

ONCE UPON A TIME: RARE19 LONDON

ONCE UPON A TIME: RARE19 LONDON  PRINCE CHARMING OPTIONAL

I wanted to go to an author signing for so long and now, it's finally happening. Not only that, but it's in one of my favorite cities in the world - London, get ready, here I come!

The closest I ever came to a signing is when Susan Elizabeth Phillips had a small signing in Croatia, but since it was a year when I had a Croatian version of SATs I missed it. There was just a short report on TV a couple of days later, and to say I was disappointed is an understatement. Susan is one of the first romance authors I ever read and I love her stories. So, I can't even begin to explain how excited I am to go to an actual signing.

I never thought much about signings because for years I simply loved to read books. What I didn't know what the whole word hiding behind those stories. And I'm not talking about a world hidden within the pages of the books. Authors are active on different social media where readers can go and…

Through the eyes of a young woman: Hopelessness of the young generations

A while ago I saw this video on Facebook. You can find it if you click here. Basically, you get three boards with mixed letters. You write down the first word on each board you see and then you should get some answers hidden deep in your subconsciousness of who you are as a person.
The words I got are: humble, loving and hopeless.
The first word, in my case humble, is the word that describes me as a person. The second word, loving, is the way other people see me. And the third word, hopeless, is the way I feel about my future.


Now, you're probably wondering why I'm giving so much thought to some silly video posted on Facebook. I probably wouldn't, it's not in my nature to do so, but something about that words irks me. Becuase it's true.
I do feel hopeless.
I'm not sure if it's just me, a girl coming from a small country in Europe. Or maybe it's a problem of our generation in general. It could be a mid-twenties crisis, for all I know but the point is, I…
