Read the new vampire PNR Alpha Revealed by Brenda Sparks @brenda_sparks #RLFblog #NewRelease #PNRBrenda Sparks, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Alpha Revealed.

Alpha Revealed by Brenda Sparks

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Natasha Peterhoff is the luckiest vampire in the world. Having pined over the sexy, but aloof Vladimir Starikovich for centuries, her feelings are reciprocated when the pair are drawn to each other the night of her brother’s wedding. Unfortunately, the stark light of day dawns, and the couple parts ways.

Back in Siberia, Vlad is overcome by doubts. Not only will Natasha’s brother kill him, but his own past is reason enough to keep her away. He vows to do everything in his power to keep her safe, even it if means never seeing her again.

With so many reasons to stay apart, will the ties that bind be strong enough to pull them together?

Why did you write this book?

I wanted to see how my characters would deal with an unplanned pregnancy. Needless to say, much like a human family, this vampiric family had a wide range of reactions to the news about the blessed event, some reactions were comical, some were in awe, and yet others were in disbelief. It was a lot of fun to see how each character reacted.

What is your favorite genre to read?

There is never enough time in a week to read, but I do it every chance I get. I’m a big fan of paranormal and historical romances.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

I love Senth Antonello from the Antonello Brothers series by you, Kayelle. He’s a daredevil who holds a lofty position in the elite Thieves’ Guild. His charisma and chutzpah pulled me right in.
(note from Kayelle: Wow! That is too cool. Thank you, Brenda!)

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m currently working on the final book in the Alpha Council Chronicles series, Alpha Eternal. It’s been quite a journey for the Alphas, and I will miss writing about them. But who knows? Perhaps there could be some stories in the future where they will make an appearance.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I will be releasing A Midsummer Night’s Demon this summer. This story was published in 2013 by the Wild Rose Press. However, I am in the process of completing revisions and plan to rerelease it this summer with fresh new scenes and a brand-new cover.

this is your first series?

Yes, in fact, while I have written a few stand-alone stories, this is my one and only series.

There are 5 stories at this time with one more in production. Alpha Mine, Deadly Alpha, Alpha Lover and Alpha Pair are currently on sale for $0.99 each while Alpha Revealed is due to be released in March.

you lost sleep while writing this series?

Absolutely! The heroes of this series invaded my dreams, specially Nicholai. I’d wake in the middle of the night and have to get out of bed to write down a scene.

you did research for this series?

I had to do a lot of research regarding Russian royalty because some of my vampires are descendants of The House of Romanov.

some characters in this series are not human? (pets for example)

Besides the vampires, the series features a group of demons who love to cause trouble and aren’t exactly fans of my Alphas.

this series has more than one genre?

I’m one of those people who feels like if I arrive 15 minutes ahead of schedule then I’m actually late. Being late is one of my biggest pet peeves.

you love pizza?

Ummm…yes!! I’m a wanna be Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

you love sushi?

It’s not my thing, but I love watching the sushi chefs make it.

you have a pet?

I do. Two years ago, I rescued a pair of rats from being sold as snake food. The girls are silly and sooo smart. It’s been fun having them around the house.

Summoned by the Alpha Council, Tatiana grudgingly helps track Demetri down, promising herself that she will disappear from his life forever once the job is done.

Where to buy A Midsummer Night’s Demon

Daelyn Torres is determined to break free from her over-protective brother. Born a demon, she knows little of the world outside her home and work. A chance blind date promises adventure and perhaps a walk on the wild side. But her night on the town takes a deadly turn when she is gravely injured and left to die. A handsome, mysterious stranger comes to her rescue and brings with him a passion she has never experienced.

A dark guardian sent to investigate a series of missing person cases, vampire Ky Robinson is ready for anything, except the insatiable desire that engulfs him when he meets Daelyn. He senses their destiny is intertwined and vows to do everything in his power to keep her safe. The only problem: demons and vampires go together like fire and ice.

Daelyn never believed in things that went bump in the night but is more than willing to be seduced by the sexy vampire who marks both her body and soul. Will Ky be able to keep them both alive long enough to prove that vampires and demons can be so much more than friends?

How author Brenda Sparks became a #1 Blogger 2 years in a row on #RLFblog @Brenda_Sparks

How Does Brenda do it?

Brenda Sparks managed to be the top blogger on Romance Lives Forever, two years in a row. How? I can tell you one thing, she talks about other authors who appear here and sends out tweets every week leading people back to her posts. In return, she gets a book listed on the front page of the blog for a year. Not shabby at all! See an example of one of her tweets below. It’s about her book, but it goes to the RLF blog. I think one secret is she cares and shares.

And what about Vicki Batman, who managed to get 40 comments on one blog post? What does she do to get people to read and comment? One thing about her that I know, she supports other authors, and she has an incredibly compelling personal story to tell. She and her husband, whom she always calls Handsome, have been going through a long battle with cancer. She’s shared her unfolding story each year during Cancer Awareness in October. Her readers love keeping up with her. I think one secret is her big heart.

How author Brenda Sparks became a #1 Blogger 2 years in a row on #RLFblog @Brenda_Sparks

Both Brenda and Vicki get a full year of advertising on RLF. Congratulations!

What kind of books do they write? Brenda writes Paranormal and Vicki writes Contemporary and Women’s Fiction. The other authors listed below are an interesting mix. Two write historical fiction, and several write suspense. The biggest draw on this site is romance, followed by contemporary, PNR (paranormal romance), romantic suspense, historical, contemporary, and sci fi. That last one is partly because it’s what I write and I sneak in a post every month myself. We have a large number of Sci Fi posts from others too. But those are not the only genres. We have everything except kidlit.

In 2019, There were many authors who did an amazing job of bringing visitors to the blog. After Brenda Sparks, the following authors are listed in order based on the number of visits they brought to the blog.

#1 Lyndell Williams
#2 Dee S Knight (Dee comments on RLF every day!)
#3 Kryssie Fortune
#4 NJ Walters
#5 Alina K Field
#6 Daryl Devore
#7 Alexa Aston
#8 Karen Cino
#9 Jami Gray
#10 Amber Daulton

Two authors whose visits were also high overall were Vicki Batman (surprised? not) and Lorelei Confer.

So how do you get to be a number one blogger and get your name out there where people can hear about you? Use Twitter. Share on Facebook. Pop it into your newsletter. Share pictures on Tumblr. Whatever works for you, use it to tell people where you are going to be. When an author shares it helps others as well as the author. Being a champion for others is what it’s all about.

Here’s the link to sign up for next year. I use SignupGenius to let you pick your own date, plus, you’ll get automated reminders so you don’t miss a scheduled visit.

My thanks to all the wonderful authors who have appeared on RLF during 2019. Here’s to a prosperous and successful 2020.
