I live in Michigan with my husband and our two sons. My family is very supportive of my writing. When I’m writing, they often bring me the take-out menu so that I can call and order them dinner. They listen patiently when I talk about my characters like they’re real. They rarely roll their eyes when I tell them I’ll onl

“He isn't wearing a shirt.... He shouldn't just walk around like that; it's obscene to have to look at someone so perfect. He should do the world a favor and eat a donut or two.”
Amy A. Bartol, Inescapable

“I slump against the cushion. “How am I going to protect him, if I’ve completely alienated him? He thinks I’m creepy…” I say sadly.
“You are not creepy,” Reed says soothingly, taking my hand.
“You’re not a good judge of creepy, Reed, since you’re creepier than I am,” I say warily, looking over at Zephyr when I hear him laughing at my comment. “I wouldn’t laugh too hard, pal, because you’re the creepiest one of us all.”
Amy A. Bartol, Inescapable

“...I have never seen him smile like that—it’s intoxicating, especially because I never thought he would smile like that at me.”

“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”
Jorge Luis Borges

“I lie to myself all the time. But I never believe me.”
S.E. Hinton, The Outsiders

“Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.”
Henry James

“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up because if you give up, you'll never find your soulmate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.”
Marilyn Monroe

Hi, Melissa! Everything is going so well with the Inescapable that I want to pinch myself because this really can't be my life! I received the proof of Intuition (Book 2) via UPS on Wednesday. I looks AWESOME!!! I approved it and I think it's for sale on Amazon now. I am waiting for my first shipment of them so I can send you one! I'm so excited for you to read it :) The eBook for Intuition won't be available on Amazon for a couple of weeks yet. I was hoping for sooner, but everything slows down around the holidays. I'm going to start blogging about it, but I wanted to tell you first.

I give you major kudos for being able to juggle school, work, and reading! You are AMAZING! I hope you have a great holiday and that 2012 is your best year ever. After I get the first prints of Intuition, I'll let you know so you can look for yours in the mail. Thank you for being the coolest person ever! I appreciate hearing from you :)

Your friend,
Amy A. Bartol

Sanette Thanks for adding me as a friend Amy. Your books are one hell of an emotional roller coaster and I would not have wanted anything less. Your writing is so powerful and your characters so realistic that I can actually visual everything happening in your books. I have the third book on my Kindle and I'm preparing myself for the rough and emotional journey I'm sure Evie and I will be on together. I'm glad you liked my review of Intuition, it was such an amazing read for me and I agree, I think we would make great friends. I look forward to further conversations. Next monday I will be starting Indebted and I can't wait to share my thoughts with you. I know I will love it! Thank you again for your amazing works of art, I have never been so emotionally invested in a series of books like I am with yours.

I'm definitely team Reed (although I can't wait to see what happens with Xavier!), but Russell is wonderful (love Anya!). I mean, even Brennus had his moments...

message 39: by Roberta

Roberta Team Reed..............I just love, love this series... IT has everything you could want in a story. The twist of the love story is so beautiful with Reed. He has loved Evie from the day he met her.

"In all my years that I have lived, the time that I have spent with you has been the most exquisite". -Reed

My heart breaks for them over and over. When she was begging her father for help to save Reed I was crying like a baby. My heart was breaking in two with her. It felt so real at the time. That's when you know your invested in the charters of a book.

When Reed is holding her at the end and praying for god not to take her from him if so take him too. "I'm lost here without you" "may this soul in thins hands be with me....always".

Reed-"I whisper, I'm lost with out you, I'm only found in your eyes" "the most fortunate day of my life," was when I stumbled across you, Evie. I need you to stay with me...please....I will love you every day until my last. I promise you that I will.

My heart sings when he calls her love. I could go on and on about Reed.

I am not a fan of the evil one brennus, has everyone forgotten what he has put her through in all the other books.. Hello he is the evil dead. How could you root for him. Just think he is that guy that is an obsessed stalker he goes everywhere you go. If he can't have you then he wants you dead so that no one can have you. The only difference with him is he will kill her soul which is worse. I want him dead, no ifs and buts about it. (ok maybe I'm a little hash about him, Not.. I do love to hate him).

Now to Xavier I felt for him and I believed what he told Evie and my heart broke for him a little but Amy didn't get to far into there past for me to get to torn up about it.

Russell.... what's there not to love about him. He is so sweet, pure at heart and evie's soul mate. I loved him from the start. The perfect charter in a book like this. I love the twist that he has an aspire now which makes it easier for me not to feel bad for him not being with his soul mate in this life time.

What I like to see happen next is Brennus dead dead and reed or Russell can kill him I don't care or both of them.. The whole foursome love triangle is too much and evie has started to remember Xavier and ran away from him so we or she didn't get the answers. She has known him and loved him from her beginning so that is going to be the most terrifying thing for her to go through when she really remembers him. There is also her father and why she was created to be a half bread. Why she excepted her mission. The changing of Russell that changed everything when she saved his life in the convince store that wasn't suppose to happen. How everything has changed because her father was called back to heaven. What was suppose to happen if he hadn't left her. Oh, and did she choose tau to be her birth father on earth? Would she still have met Reed, would they still been together if tau and Xavier went to Crestwood with her. It was reeds money that paid for her to go to that school so tau or someone knew reed and zee before. Would Evie and Reed have the butterflies if Xavier was still around during that time??? Ugh!!!!.....also is it me or does it seem like Russell is way stronger than Evie????......OMG!!!!!! so many what ifs and questions that I have.

I could go on forever. Best books ever!!!

Thanks Amy for writing such an amazing journey for us to read. I heart you.

message 48: by Amy

Amy Hi Amy! I read your blog post about the new work you have completed and am looking forward to reading it. I can confidently day I'd read anything you published.

I discovered your Premonition series by accident (while trawling amazon one day) and I haven't looked back since. I'm a total magpie when it comes to books and I fell in love with the cover of Inescapable before I even read the blurb, which when I read it just cemented the fact I had to buy the book. I read it the day it arrived and then immediately bought the other books in the series, (only then having to wait impatiently for them to arrive!) The two weeks it took for them to post from the States to Australia were filled with anticipation and annoyance as I waited for my Reed, Evie and Russell fix. :)

In the last year I've reread the series twice and recommended it to several friends, all of whom have become as obsessed with the books as I am. You truly have a gift with words and I am eagerly waiting for Iniquity.

All the best,
