WHAT READERS ARE SAYING:
“As They Rise by J. M. Wilde is not the typical YA zombie book, but that is because J. M. Wilde is not the average independent author. The narrative voice she utilizes for Eva, the main character and decided heroine of the series, is flawless. The flow of the work was excellent. This series is off to an excellent start! 5/5.” – Fox Emm, ZombieApocalypse.net
“Wilde skillfully combines fun, quirky characters and a terrifying world.” – Rainey, Goodreads review
“This was a delight to read… Eva kicks ass and you can’t help but root for her all the way.” – Rouelle, Goodreads review
“The way the author describes the events in the story really get me excited and even makes me feel like I’m actually in the situation the characters are in themselves.” – A. Claudio, Goodreads review
You guys, I’m so excited!
A couple of weeks ago, a Wattpad writer friend told me about a site called Swoon Reads.
Swoon Reads publishes under Feiwel and Friends, an imprint of Macmillan. They publish Young Adult love stories with the help of their readers! It’s like crowd-sourcing for books! Ahhhh!
The moment I saw it, I knew I had to finish writing AWAKENED (the first book in my new paranormal romance series) and get it on Swoon Reads before the next deadline (May 31st for any YA romance writers out there!).
Anyone who knows me won’t be surprised at how much I worked my ass off to get this manuscript done. The moment I found out when the deadline to submit for the next round was, I gave myself a week to finish AWAKENED. I was only about 20K words into it, and it needed to be at least 50K for submission, so it was a big call.
For the next 7 days, all I did was sit at my dining table and write. From the moment I got up in the morning until my eyes were too sore to go on at night. I should take a moment here to mention that I have a very swoonworthy husband who cooked dinner for me every single night while I was sucked in to the writing vortex.
My entire world revolved around Echo, Wren, Jai, Sova and Nyxie. And it was awesome!
And I did it! I wrote 30K words in just over a week! I hit 50K words!
I took a few minutes to celebrate…
Almost broke my glasses while headbanging to Wolfmother to celebrate hitting 50K words. Yep. I’m THAT hardcore. #amwriting

And then I dove deep into editing. Tweaking. Scrapping. Rearranging. Re-writing.
My awesome husband read it, offered suggestions and corrections, and then I did it all again. And again.
Yesterday, after a final read through, I formatted it to fit the Swoon Reads requirements, wrote the short and long descritpions, whipped up a few promo images, and then hit SUBMIT with trembling fingers.
So, if you like reading YA Paranormal Romance stories – especially ones about witches and hunters! – please do check it out. Leave a comment under the book on Swoon Reads with your feedback. Tell me what you loved about it (hint: Jai is swoonworthy) and what you think could be improved.
D E S C R I P T I O N :
Echo thought she was safe.
She thought she could hide from the shriekers that took her parents, until they began to crave her soul.
She thought she could run from her Intueri power, until it threatened to burst from the seams of her skin.
She thought she could protect her heart from love, until she met the handsome hunter with a past as troubled as her own.
Yes, Echo thought she was safe. But she’ll soon find out she was very, very wrong.
A YA Paranormal Romance story of true love, magick, courage and sisterhood, AWAKENED is the first book in the much anticipated new series from the author of The Eva Series, a Wattpad featured series with almost 3 million combined reads.
Here’s a sneak peek from AWAKENED:
I’ll be sharing more sneak peeks on social media over the next few weeks, so come join the fun!
Yes! Happy Breaking Bad Day!
And, happy new chapter day! That’s right, I actually posted a new chapter today. YAY!
It’s still just a draft, but it’s ready. And I’ll be uploading a new chapter every weekday (Mon-Fri).
I have to admit I’m excited and nervous to see the reaction from readers. I hope book two lives up to the excitement and hype that book one received – and is still receiving!
Thanks to everyone for the constant stream of reads, fans, comments and kind messages. I still get so blown away that my work is being read and loved by so many awesome people!
Speaking of awesome people, shout out to Eva Wilde fan Maggie and her friend for drawing this super cool picture of Eva and Jo:
How awesome is that?!
Well, I’m off to watch the new ep of Breaking Bad!
