So, now I bring you our final featured author, Amanda Lutterman. Amanda is an Amazon best selling short story author. She’s the mother of two, and hails from a small town in Barren County Kentucky. She loves all things paranormal, conspiracy theories, and documentaries. I had the chance to talk to her about her love for paranormal romances, writing, and what she has coming up next.
1) What is your favorite Halloween memory?
My aunt Becky used to throw a HUGE Halloween party every year in her basement for our family. She would set up tons of games, load all the kids up goodie bags, and the highlight of the evening was trick or treating around the neighborhood with all of my cousins.
2) Who was your favorite romance or paranormal author and how did they influence you?
That’s a hard question. I’ve read so many wonderful authors, it’s really difficult to narrow it down to just one! But if I truly had to choose, Christine Feehan really sticks out in my mind. I love her Dark series. She has the most unique take on vampires that I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading.
3) Do you have a writing routine? Share what works for you.
I write as the inspiration strikes me. I have a real love hate relationship with my muse. Sometimes he’s a butt. He lives to smack me in the head with great ideas while I’m busy with life in general and can’t stop to jot things down.
Usually it’s really late at night or in the very early hours of the morning that I have time for my writing. I struggle with regular insomnia. Writing is calming for me, and allows me to settle my mind.
4) What paranormal creatures or subjects would you like to write about?
I’ve yet to touch on vampires, but I truly love all paranormal creatures. I really want to write for a lot of the more obscure paranormal creatures, maybe even a few rarer cryptids too!
5) What is writing to you in one sentence?
6) What projects are you working on right now?
Oh, I have so many! My mind is always churning with new ideas.
I have so many unpublished stories for my Project Genesis series, with huge plans for a future permanent home for all my beloved hybrids and Marines.
I also have a second story for my Intergalactic Mates in the works. Bailar is scheduled to be hitting Amazon in January 2018!
I have been working on an all new Ethereal Brides series too. I don’t have an ETA yet, so you’ll just have to wait and see!
Book Review of Hammer by Marilyn Vix
Amanda Lutterman’s featured book is called Hammer. It is the first in a series of 19 books. This book starts out with some good, down to earth super soldier action, and builds a world of secret government programs of genetically enhanced soldiers. Starting with the mission inside a secret Chinese facility, we meet Hammer, the leader of an elite group of super soldiers. After going through an intense military operation exposing all sorts of secret experiments on mutant soldiers, Hammer and his team return to home base.
Enter sweet Leah, the new counselor to work with the captured mutant soldiers that are a mental mess from the experiments. Of course, nothing can keep Hammer and Leah apart once the sparks start to fly, and we see the tender side of a soldier as he falls in love. But of course, things can’t be happy forever when you fall in love with a soldier. Soon, secrets start to come out about the Genesis program that can unravel everything. Hammer and Leah have to rely on each other to stand strong through it all.
I did like the world building and action in this story. There were some pretty hot love scenes as well, sure to spice up any evening with a nice bottle of wine. Military and secret government projects are all surrounded with a mystery and a romance at its center. It was a good book to get lost in at bath time. And the good news, there are eighteen other books in the series.
