I'm so glad you enjoyed Ella and Liam's journey. While they will certainly be around in book three of the Shamed series, in Rebound, it will be Carol and Nathan's turn for a happy ending! Book four will feature Garrett. :-)(less)
Laura Marie Altom Hi Cintia--You know how they put blinders on horses to keep them from getting upset? It should be mandatory that writers get a pair, too! Seriously,…moreHi Cintia--You know how they put blinders on horses to keep them from getting upset? It should be mandatory that writers get a pair, too! Seriously, if you focus on every piece of bad news in not just the writing world, but the world as a whole, it can be crippling. My heartfelt advice to you is to write for the joy of it. Ignore what industry statistics say and just write. Maybe when you feel creative, make sure to stay away from the internet? Or set aside an hour each morning for writing "play". Yes, there's more competition than ever, but there are also more avenues than ever for writers' to have their work read and sold. Major hugs. If it helps, this happens to almost every professional writer I know. Your will to create must override all doubt. You've got this!! xoxo(less)

What's Summer Fun?!

Proud of myself for finally ditching the winter wreath and hauling off the poor dead fern! LOL!!Ahh . . . summer.

The word calls to mind turquoise swimming pools and sunshine glinting like diamonds on oceans lapping sandy shores. Summer makes me think of picnics and ice cream and watermelon. Planting flowers and reading on the shady front porch.

Um, yeah--if you're at Casa Altom, now's the time to make that annoying scra... Read more of this blog post »

Chilling. Sobering. DEEPLY disturbing. This book will stay with me for a long time.

Just read it again, and it still creeps me out. I like how this author makes his characters relatable. A lil too know-it-all macho, but still flawed enough

“Ella was a perfect study in contradictions, and I’d somehow contracted her like a beautiful disease.”
Laura Marie Altom, Control

“Branches etched a network of veins across the starry night sky. My own veins were exposed and raw from my attraction to Ella—attraction, hell. More like obsession.”
Laura Marie Altom, Control

“Was I doing the right thing? Or being stupid for not following Liam’s plan? Only time would tell. For now, I had to believe that whatever move kept Liam safe was not only the right solution, but the only solution.”
Laura Marie Altom, Possess

“Ella was a perfect study in contradictions, and I’d somehow contracted her like a beautiful disease.”
Laura Marie Altom, Control

“My feelings for Liam couldn’t be processed as a single thought. He’d become a symphony in my mind, composed of boundless crescendos that never reached a logical end.”
Laura Marie Altom, Control

“I pushed Liam back, wanting him to fall like I was falling. To feel that instant of confusion, of not being sure where life was leading, but thinking that might be okay.”
Laura Marie Altom, Control

“Branches etched a network of veins across the starry night sky. My own veins were exposed and raw from my attraction to Ella—attraction, hell. More like obsession.”

“His plan sounded dreamy—assuming we were a normal couple, headed out for a normal date, but we weren’t that couple. We were a freak show of his own making.”
