Release day for The Immortal Mark!



IT'S RELEASE DAY! AHHH, I'M SO EXCITED I HAVE TO TYPE IN ALL CAPS!

Okay, that's enough caps lock for now. The first book in my new paranormal romance series is out today! You can find it on Amazon here and it's also FREE to read if you're a Kindle Unlimited member. (Kindle Unlimited is like Netflix for books! If you'd like to find out more, including how to get a free trial membership to read The Immortal Mark + other books, click here.)

About the book:

From the bestselling author of Summer Unplugged, The Immortal Mark is the first in a new paranormal romance series by Amy Sparling.

The only thing Cara got for her eighteenth birthday was an unexpected invitation to move out of her uncle’s house. College isn’t an option for a poor girl with average grades, so when her best friend Riley finds them a mysterious job opportunity that includes room and board, Cara is interested but thinks it sounds too good to be true.
The night before their interview, Cara has an epic night out with Theo, an impossibly handsome guy she just met. He’s charismatic, a little mysterious, and it feels like she’s known him her whole life.
When she runs into him at her interview, he’s cold and elusive. He makes it very clear that he doesn’t want her working with him, which only makes their mutual attraction burn hotter. Cara takes the job for Riley’s sake and promises herself she’ll avoid this jerk and his mood swings, no matter how hard it is to keep away from him.
Soon she finds out her millionaire employers aren’t normal guys who live and travel in luxury. They’re immortals. Theo wasn’t trying to ruin her job prospects. He was trying to save her life, because the girls they hire never make it out alive.

Introducing Unplugged Summer - a special edition


This Valentine's Day will be special for fans of the Summer Unplugged series! I'm releasing a special edition novel called Unplugged Summer. It's a retelling of the first book but from Jace's point of view. Ever wonder what he was thinking when he met Bayleigh? Now you'll know!

In addition to the new book, Unplugged Summer will also have Summer Unplugged so you can read them back to back. Plus, it'll have bonus features! This book is for the die hard Summer Unplugged fan, and it'll be here soon!

You can preorder it here: Amazon

And here's the summary:

Jace Adams had a promising career in professional motocross, until he threw it all away thanks to a girl who treated him like crap. After getting in trouble with the law, Jace decides to banish himself from a busy life in LA to a small town in Texas for the summer. He needs a fresh start to figure out where his life goes from here. The last thing he needs is a distraction from the beautiful girl next door. 

And then he meets her and decides that maybe she’s exactly what he needs after all.

Amy's Book Recs!

I've had many readers ask me for books to read after they've read all of mine, or if they need a new author for a book report at school. I thought I'd make a list of some of my favorite books that all have a fun flirty writing style like mine. I've read them all and love them, so hopefully you'll like them too!

Plans for 2017 & Announcing The Immortal Mark

This year was a fantastic year for my writing career. It was my second year as a full time writer, and I learned so much about being self employed and writing. I've also been unbelievably blessed to have such amazing readers who send me the best emails!

This year I published 9 full length novels and 3 novellas! It was my most  productive year ever since I started writing seriously in 2008.

For 2017, I plan on publishing one novel a month, starting with my new series, The Immortal Mark. Up until now, I've always published YA contemporary romance, but I've been aching to write this series ever since the idea came to me a few months ago. I recently took a survey of my readers and 94% of them said they'd be happy to read a paranormal series by me, so that motivated me to get started on it. I do still plan on releasing a YA contemporary romance every now and then to keep all my readers happy. :)

The Immortal Mark an urban romance with paranormal elements, and the main character is 18 years old, so it falls somewhere between upper Young adult and New Adult on the genre lists. There will still be LOTS of romance, so no worries! I am super excited for this series and I have already fallen in love with my characters. I really hope you'll enjoy it, too!

Book 1 releases January 31, 2017! *squee*

Introducing Amy's Street Team!


As we move into the new year, I'm branching out my marketing efforts (or in other words--I'm starting some marketing efforts! lol) and I'm creating a Street Team!

Being a member of my street team means you're a dedicated reader and want to help me spread the word about my books. My street team will get exclusive info and giveaways that no one else gets, and--the most important part--you'll get a free eBook copy of EVERY new book I release! All you have to do in return is review the books on Amazon as soon as you're able to.

Although nothing is mandatory and being a member of the team is totally voluntary, the purpose of joining up is to help spread the word about new books by posting book reviews, posting links and photos of the books to your social media, websites, blogs, etc. I can even send bookmarks and stickers if you are able to pass them out in real life. Anything goes! The main goal of my street team will be to spread awareness of my books and make sure they reach as many readers as possible.

My plan is to email the Street Team once a month with my new book and pictures, teaser quotes, and any other stuff I can think of that you can choose to post online, Tweet, Instagram, etc, as often or as little as you'd like.

I'll also send out polls and let you help me choose which new books to write, what to name characters, and more fun stuff like that. (and YES, you'll get a book character named after you!)

Subscribers will be capped at 25 members at a time, so sign up soon if you don't want to miss out!
