Flutter Blog Tour: Day 1

The Flutter Blog Tour is finally here! A lot of love and hard work went into this tour. We hope you have as much fun participating in it as we did planning everything!

A big thank you to all of the blogs participating! I could not have asked for a better group of people! A big thank you to Katy for all of your help, especially with the silly Rafflecopter stuff! 

Melissa, thank you for allowing me to host Flutter's Blog Tour. I've both had a blast and learned a lot. The countdown is officially beginning for the release of Flutter. I cannot wait to finally read it! I know both you and the book are going to do great things! Congratulations, my friend! I wish you the best! <3 

How did I come up with Flutter… It’s funny because I practiced answering this over and over in my head while writing Flutter in-case I was ever asked this question, in-case I actually finished Flutter. Haha. Now that I’m finally being asked it, I don’t remember the sparkly, polished, wow, answer I use to recite over and over in my head *insert face palm here*

Well the answer is still the same, just no bells and whistles this time! Flutter didn't come to me in a dream like Twilight did for Stephanie Meyer, nothing cool like that. I actually came up with Flutter in my car, on the way home from the store. I remember passing my daughter’s school and thinking how I wanted to do something different, something that hasn't been done before. Like Amanda Hocking did with her Trylle Trilogy. I ran over a bunch of different ideas, even going as far as Spanish fly, I know gross right! A split second after I thought that and quickly crossed it off the list, I came up with the idea for Flutter –what was that idea you ask?? Well I can’t tell you! It’s the very essence of Flutter and the big SECRET to what Sara is!

SO that’s my big ‘how I came up with Flutter’ story! Nothing fancy, no confetti or fireworks, but I will always remember that car ride home… *insert soft sigh, dreamy look off into space and cheesy smile here*

            From start to finish, Flutter has taken a little over a year. The major hiccup I had with Flutter it my pregnancy LOL. I had horrible morning sickness and I did nothing, but lay in bed all day! It took a couple months to get over that and when I finally did, I spent that next few months with my girls. So it was very challenging trying to finish Flutter with a newborn, but I managed!
Sara's life is forever changed -
 Waking up, buried & hidden deeply in the last place anyone would want to be, will do that. She is determined to find out how she ended up there & why, but when the only person who can help her, continuously lies to her, she finds herself forced to suffer alone. She can't ignore the strange things that begin to happen to her nor can she hide from the nightmares that haunt her sleep. And when her world collides with Adan - the mysterious boy whom she can't seem to stay away from, literally - she is consumed by the flutter that sparks whenever he is around and she is desperate to discover the reason why.
But the biggest discovery will come from the secret of what she is…

Adan’s mission to find Sara has finally begun -
 It seemed simple: bring her back to the enchanted world that lives, breathes and survives because of her, but he quickly finds himself faced with an entirely new challenge. Immediately, Adan realizes that staying unknown to Sara is a task he will fail before he even begins; the pull to her is far too strong to refuse, and being with her will defy the very reason he existed. He was the key to her survival and loving her was not part of the path that he had been born to follow. Can he find it in himself too resist the urge to be with her and follow through with their destiny or will he destroy everything that had been left to Sara to protect and defend -
And the kingdom she is unaware she rules…

As Sara and Adan struggle to overcome their own separate battles -
There is a far more determined evil that is stalking the shadows and waiting to annihilate them both.
Sara will figure out that not everything is what it seems and knowing what she can and can not trust will be the key to finding out the truth of what happened to her, the reason why she was buried alive and who she really is…

Sara and Adan will discover  why she was the reason he existed and why he would be the reason she survived & together they will fight to change the rules and rewrite their fate.
Discover the Meaning,
Discover the Secret,

Melissa Andrea
I find it hard to sum up my life in a paragraph, but I’ll try.
    Reading has always been a passion for me, and writing as instinctive as breathing. Every inhale is an idea; every exhale a creation. Flutter will be my debut release, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! The only thing I do better than writing you ask? Making beautiful girls. My daughter’s will always be my greatest accomplishment.
I was born in Denver, Colorado –but I will always think of sunny Arizona as my home. I don’t have a big family, but I’m close with my sister, brother & my mom. My mom is my hero, my inspiration, and I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing person to be raised by.
4 things you should know about me: I’m very girly, but I can get down and dirty with the best of them. I adore the color pink, I love things that sparkle (including vampires) and I like even numbers (hence 4 things about me, not 5)
