Cecily Wolfe's Blog: The Start of Something New

July 4, 2019

Two New Releases!

The Library War is here! If you didn't pre-order, be sure to pick up your copy for only 99 cents before the price goes up this weekend.

My first YA, That Night, released two years ago on July 4, which is just a happy coincidence, and hopefully good luck for The Library War's continued success.



My teenage daughter and I have a short story series under the pen name Alessa Martel that just started releasing last month and will continue each Thursday through mid-August. These are contemporary sweet and clean romances with a touch of the charm and intrigue of Gypsy culture. All are in Kindle Unlimited for FREE or 99 cents for your Kindle. These stories take an hour or less to read, and all have happy endings, we promise.

Esmé is today's new release. Can true love blossom from a pretend romance?

When an unwanted suitor harasses Esmé at the restaurant where she works, the boss's son offers to pretend to be her boyfriend to discourage future problems. It doesn't take long for Esmé to realize that her affection for Landon is real, but her parents plan to choose a husband for her and time is running out. Will she tell him the truth about how she feels?

Willow is Here! Only 99 Cents, FREE in Kindle Unlimited

















The first of the American Gypsy Romance short story series is now available, and there will be one published each Thursday through the middle of August.

My teenage daughter and I are writing them together under the name Alessa Martel. The first story is Willow: Two boys, one love – does Willow have the courage to follow her heart? Willow has always been a good girl, working hard to make her mother proud. Staying within the rules of Gypsy culture has never been a problem, but Duke and his sweet smile make her question the arranged marriage that lies ahead.

These stories are 99 cents each, or FREE in Kindle Unlimited, and take less than an hour to read.

Yes, my daughter is watching High School Musical and due to a lack of imaginative ideas for a title, there we have it.
