About this author

Courtney Cole is a novelist who would eat mythology for breakfast if she could.

She has a degree in Business, but has since discovered that corporate America is not nearly as fun to live in as fictional worlds.

Every Last Kiss is her debut novel and she followed it with the rest of The Bloodstone Saga (Every Last Kiss, Fated, With My Last Breath and My Tattered Bonds).

Courtney lives in quiet suburbia, close to Lake Michigan, with her real-life Prince Charming, her ornery kids (there is a small chance that they get their orneriness from their mother) and a small domestic zoo.

Happy Wednesday, guys!


Today’s the day to reveal the cover for Guardian! Woohooo!


In case you missed it the other day, Guardian was my debut book several years ago. I recently acquired the rights back, and since it didn’t get much exposure back when it originally released, we’re re-releasing it. It’s a YA Paranormal Romance— and it’s undergoing new editing, and a brand-new cover.

“What was it about relationships that made you feel so vulnerable? Oh, right. A relationship. In any relationship, you put yourself out there. You exposed all of your sensitive nerve endings and your heart and you just had to hope that you trusted the right person.”
Courtney Cole, Every Last Kiss

“I can’t let you break my heart. I don’t have much of it left.”
Courtney Cole, If You Stay

“I roll my eyes. 'Are you trying to find some sort of reason that I've become such an asshole? The reason is... I'm an asshole. There are some things in life that can't be explained. Period. Assholes are assholes. Rainbows are pretty. Kittens are cute. Chic flicks are sad. It's the way of things, no explanations.”

Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

Christina Montminy Hi Courtney,

I was wondering where I can find Confessions of an Alli Cat? I looked on Kobo but it's not there.


Christina Montminy I got to read Before we Fall thru Net Gallery & didn't realize that it was in a series, but I loved it. Dominic's character was so dark & disturbed that I felt so bad for him. I can't wait to read the other books in the series now.

Rachel (The Rest Is Still Unwritten) Hi Courtney!
Thanks for much for the friend request. I'm looking forward to reading Every Last Kiss very much. I love Ancient Egypt and love the idea for the story.

Faye Hi Courtney! First, I'd like to thank you for the friend request, one of my reasons being almost-addicted here in GR as much as I am in reading books is that I can have the privilege to talk to the authors and be friends with them (how cool is that, for me? haha)Second, thanks for the book recommendation and for taking the time to read my profile. I've already added the book in my TBR list. As of your book, I'm very intrigued about your plot and I would really like to curl up in bed while reading it. More powers for you! :)
