Breaking Shaun

  So, ever since I published Freeing Asia I've been trying to get my mind right for Shaun's book. For me, writing isn't something I can force. Usually what happens is, the writing "bug" will just hit me, BAM!!! and then I go sit on my computer and type away. This hasn't happened yet for Shaun. Now don't get me wrong, I've started it, I'm super excited for his story and have all kinds of ideas in mind but I think with all the marketing and excitement surrounding Asia I just haven't been able to give him my undivided attention. And lord knows, that man needs it!
  Shaun is cocky, quick tempered and not afraid to speak his mind so I'm determined to give him a woman who can keep up with him and maybe even make him work. ;) I know once this book gets going I'm going to love it! That's my one requirement for everything I write... if I don't love it, I won't put it out.
  As of right now I'm aiming to publish in March 2014. That gives me plenty of time to find my groove and make sure Breaking Shaun gets as much time as it needs. :) I'm so excited that people are anxious to read this! And just to warn you, Shaun is a very dirty boy with a very dirty mouth. lol

Paperback Cover Reveal!!

Okay ladies and gentlemen... here is the paperback cover for Freeing Asia!! For those of you who don't know, this photo holds a very special place in my heart. I took it on the beach not far from where I grew up, the cover model is my beautiful niece, Kenyia, and the surfboard belongs to one of my best friends, Nichole. My sister and her kids helped me rush to the beach in time to catch the sunset and now it is the cover of my DEBUT novel. Amazing how things work out.  I hope you love it as much as I do!!

Jay Teaser (unedited)

          “What?” He asked looking amused.
         “I just love how attentive you are. A true gentleman. I’ve never been treated like a lady before.” 
         “I usually like the bad boys.” I admitted smiling up at him before I took a bite of my pizza. 
         “But I guess since you aren’t a bad boy anymore I should try to behave myself.” 

         After swallowing I put my pizza down on my plate and Jay grabbed my hand bringing it to his mouth. His eyes locked on mine as he took my index finger and slowly licked the sauce off of it. 
        Hoooly shit. 
        “Oh I can be bad, baby.” 

        I could feel my entire body tingle with that single touch. I imagined other places I wanted that tongue to be and could feel myself tighten between my thighs. When he was done I brought my finger to my mouth sucking on it as I held his gaze. His eyes moved down to my mouth and his lips slowly lifted into a devilish grin. I pulled my finger out.   
       “Good.” I murmured before smiling back.

  I have some friends who are not on Goodreads that I asked to write short reviews for Freeing Asia and they were nice enough to do it. Here's one from my friend, Liz:

"Freeing Asia is a great read for readers and non-readers alike. I am a non-reader myself but I felt that this book pulled me in from the first sentence. The way that E.M. Abel describes the emotions and feelings of the characters really puts you in their world and you can actually feel the happiness, excitement, sorrow, etc that each character is experiencing. This book is relatable on so many different levels that I would recommend it to anyone."

And one from Shayla:

"E.M. Abel's writing is so emphatically true that it fully encompasses the reader & leads you on a whirlwind of emotions from beginning to end. Asia becomes your friend, your sister, yourself. I laughed with her, cried with her, & experienced her passion first hand all while becoming lost in "Freeing Asia's" crisp & invoking pages. In the end, I felt as if I'd lived a lifetime through Asia's eyes. Truly a beautiful & empowering piece of literature for all women to embrace!"

I am so excited to finally have the cover for Freeing Asia! This brings me one step closer to achieving my dream of publishing my first book.

I would like to thank my friend, Alyssa for spending hours creating this beautiful cover for me. She did it all for a simple "thank you" and I don't think I can say it enough. THANK YOU, ALYSSA!!!!

I would also like to thank my niece, Kenyia who modeled for the photo. She let me drag her out to the beach in the middle of February to get this shot. Covered in wet sand and goosebumps she didn't complain once and because she's such a natural the pictures came out beautifully!!

I'd like to thank my friend, Nichole for letting me use her surfboard on such short notice.

I'd like to thank my nephew for chasing after my kids while I rolled around in the sand trying to get the perfect photo.

And I'd like to thank my sister, Kristine for buying the wig and helping me rush out to the beach at the last minute to catch the sun set and in turn getting the perfect picture.

OH AND Thank you to everyone who voted for their favorite pictures!

It's awesome to know I have so much support!! I hope this book can live up to all of your expectations!!

First quote from Freeing Asia...

"For some reason his words sunk in deeper this time. He told me I was amazing before and I liked it but this time was different. His eyes were so warm and the way he was looking at me made my heart throb in my chest. This time I knew he meant it and he was right, I didn’t believe it. That hurt. It was one thing to have someone insult you or have someone hurt you but it was an entirely different thing when the person who didn’t believe in you and didn’t think you were anything special was you."

        As I started to walk away I felt a big hand grab my ass and squeeze when I heard the same voice. 
“Mmm. Damn baby, don’t play hard to get.” 
         I sucked in a breath as I felt my temper rise. Are you fucking kidding me!? Without thinking twice I swung around and punched him as hard as I could on the side of his mouth. The moment my hand met his face I felt a shooting pain starting at my middle knuckle and radiating all the way down to my elbow. 
“Fuck!” I yelled. Damn it! I got some of his teeth! I shook my hand out clenching my jaw as I looked down and saw my knuckle instantly start to swell. I quickly glanced up to see what would happen next. I could feel the people around us staring and some men behind the muscle head were chuckling.   
Once he realized what just happened he touched his lip to feel the blood coming down the corner of his mouth. Instead of the usual angry reaction, he slowly smiled at me although I could see in his eyes that he was pissed. This wasn’t the first time I punched someone and it wasn’t even the first time I punched a guy but it was definitely the first time my victim smiled after the blow. Oh shit. Here we go. I stood as straight as I could looking the guy dead in the eyes to show him I wasn’t scared although inside I had no idea what was going to happen next. Surely he wouldn’t hit me here in the middle of this big crowd. Would he? 
Just as I started to take a step backward I felt someone warm standing behind me with their breath at my neck.

Freeing Asia

By: E.M. Abel

How does a tomboy raised in a house full of men find the sensual woman inside of her? Growing up with a widowed, retired Marine as a father and two older brothers taught Asia to be tough. But how does she stop being one of the guys and learn to find the right one? 

Finding herself won't be easy, finding love will be even harder. 

Meeting Jay opens Asia's eyes to the possibility of love and unbelievable sex but can his country club world accept the woman more comfortable in torn jeans and flip flops? Or will she find the love she yearns for in the tattooed arms of her first love, a pro skater who has come back into her life? 

With the possibility of new love or closure from a painful first love, finding her path is riddled with uncertainty and discoveries but before she can follow her heart she must first set it free.

**Not recommended for younger readers due to sexual content, recreational use of marijuana and language.**
