Let Your Heart Drive – Release!

Let Your Heart Drive cover

Synopsis 

“The story of life is quicker than the wink of an eye, the story of love is hello and goodbye.” – Jimi Hendrix

I live in the shelter of darkness.

This darkness holds a secret over me… one that I have come to protect and in return it controls and holds me back.
It’s time to start fighting against it and break free. To become the unrestricted woman I yearn to be. For this to happen it will take a sixteen hundred mile road trip to let go of all that I fear and hopefully discover that the darkness doesn’t lurk everywhere. I stand on the edge overlooking a horizon of possibilities for the first time. Will I let my heart drive… to where it needs to be?

A unique romantic tale of one girl, one road, and a chance meeting with someone that will change everything in every way.

Daylight is my first Vampire Novel.  It is no ordinary Vampire Love Story.

Upcoming Novel 2013© by Karli Rush 2012

Coming March 25, 2013.

-Daylight blurb-

In a small spectrum of the world is a city full of vampires and a very rare serum. This serum allows a vampire to walk in the light of day. The formula has been guarded for thousands of years, and yet a young female vampire from the north claims to have lived on the serum as if it is common place…

This can not be… This must be dealt with.

Mattie desires two things, getting Daylight back and Him.

Here is an audio excerpt of Graham from the novel Daylight.  The extract is read by Emmy winning Irish Actor Writer and film maker – Alan Cooke.  You don’t want to miss this!

Karli Rush – The Here and Now! An Interview with an Indie Author.

Aloha everyone.

I am amped to be back in the interview seat at Rush Bound Blog. It has been a while and I’ve missed it.  I’ll tell you this, I was boarding a plane for China, the surfing off of Hainan Island right now is too radical to miss.  But alas, I will always come to the call of the Rush.  So here I am.  A lot has been happening around here since I went on my surfing hiatus.  I see the coffee here is much improved, that is always a good sign. (Hitting the button on the Keurig coffee machine)

Let me get everyone up to speed.  My name is Lucky and I run the interview department here at Rush Bound.  I specialize in Character Interviews, mainly from Karli Rush’s Novels.  It is rare that I get to sit down with the Lady herself, but today is a Great Day!

Please give it up for Paranormal Romance  Indie Author and my boss, Karli Rush!  (Hitting the button on the  applause machine)

Karli – Thank you Lucky, you’re looking quite tan, seems the time off was good for you.  Thanks for showing up so quickly.

Lucky – Anything for you, Karli.  What I want to do in this interview is to dig into the psyche of an Indie Author and find out some details behind the books that your readers would love to know.  I’m gonna start at the beginning.  Crescent Bound – Tell me something about Alyssa that is not in print.

Karli – Alyssa is an amazing witch, friend, healer, lover, and lifemate. One thing not in print?  Hmm, let me see.  Okay, you know how Megan is always messing with Alyssa’a wardrobe.  Well Lisa and Alyssa put together this spell that every time Megan would make a reference to anything sexual, a piece of her clothing would convert into a part of a Nuns outfit, called a Habit.  Megan has vowed revenge.

Lucky – That is too funny.  I can picture her face, red as fire. On to the next as they say.  The next in this case is book two, Raven Bound.  One character that stands out in this book is Evan.  Tell us something about him.

Karli – Evan is still single ladies.  Maybe Alyssa will see something about his future soon.  When and if she does, I will let you know.  Right now he is dedicated as Alyssa’s bodyguard.  That girl sure needs one too.

Book 2 in the Crescent Bound Trilogy© by Karli Rush 2012

 http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008EX46NW

Lucky – Now on to Demon Bound, a dark and dangerous world, and in the middle of all that, my favorite weekend distraction, Megan, has some interesting things going on too. I won’t put out a spoiler, but tell us something about Megan, and David also.

Karli – Megan, oh mischievous Megan!  Then there is David. Oh let me see. David has sworn off red-headed fire elementals for life.  He currently is trying to invent a spell to make pizza taste like the one he found down in Miami.  He has too much time on his hands.

Book 3 in the Crescent Bound Trilogy© by Karli Rush 2012

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AR82G7A

Lucky – Shadow Bound is the beginning of Alyssa and Marc, it is far in the past, can you share anything about this Novel, due out this spring?

Karli – Every story has a beginning.  Alyssa and Marc are in an ancient time, a time when they are living their full magickal potential.  A time when the world still held a rawness and love was impassioned with a wildness not seen in our modern world.  Magick was part of the time and a seer was invaluable. The prosperity or poverty of many rested in the hands of so few.  

(Coming Spring 2013)

Lucky – Ice Bound baby, this is Marc’s  point of view as we ride the wave with him and he gives us his experiences of Crescent Bound.  I hear there is a bunch of new stuff in this that gives the first Novel greater depth and appeal.  More about the leading man, if you please.

Karli – Marc is such an outstanding guy, it is so important for the readers to know him just before he meets Alyssa and that is where his story begins, the fall before his senior year of school and up through Crescent Bound.  You are right, Lucky, there are many parts in  this that fill in gaps about where Marc was during certain parts, and what he was doing.  Some good stuff coming with that book.

(Coming Fall 2013)

Lucky – Okay now, out of the blue you wrote a Novelette about Seducing a Mermaid.  I have a story to tell you about surfing off the coast of Morocco, but that will be another time.  Can you tell us something about Sam or Jewels?

Karli – I said once that I would never write a story about a Mermaid, but Jewels snuck up on me, and Sam was so deserving.  He had been through the ringer with a long time ex-girlfriend.  I also wanted to show a side of men that is not all macho and dominating.  Sam is my artist, the one who has no tendencies towards violence.  He is the lover not the fighter.  I have been asked about writing more on this one.  I will never say never, but Sam and Jewels are content at the moment, so I don’t have any current plans to do another story or expand the current one, yet.

Lucky – Now we switch gears again and delve into the future and science fiction side of your Romance writing.  You have a book coming out this year called Pine Needles.  Care to give us a taste of this delicacy?

Karli – Selene is an independent and successful small business woman, engaged to a great guy. Her future looks bright with no surprises on the horizon.  And here comes the but. But an earthquake hits the city and a strange energy veil splits it in two.  One side of the veil must deal with the after effects of the devastating earthquake. On the other side of the veil is a whole new and dangerous world.  Selene is behind the veil and Rayden is on the outside. Selene must become more than she could ever imagine just  to survive.

Book 1 in the Veil Realms Series © by Karli Rush 2012

(Coming – Summer 2013)

Lucky –  See all the activity going on around here while I was gone.  Things are popping, books are growing out of thin air and I can’t wait to get my (interview) hands on some of these characters. Even though I’ve been surfing my ass off, I haven’t been completely out of touch, I keep up with The Zon and scope out  GR, FB, and the Twit.

I’ve caught wind of a project you’re forging as we speak.  The world of Vampires, the Romance of a young woman, and an Obsession from the Underworld.  Tell me, tell me, something about Daylight!

Karli  – Oh, this story is eating me up with excitement.  Mattie, a young Vampire is being stalked by Death, literally.  Mattie enters this city called Solace and it’s ruled by ruthless vampires, so it is a good thing to have Death on your side.  Mattie’s obsessions involve two things, a serum called Daylight and Him!  Both are so close to her, yet somehow just out of reach.  Her intention is to get both, all she has to do is survive HELL in Paradise.

Upcoming Novel 2013© by Karli Rush 2012

 (Coming February 2013)

Karli, you continue to bring us Excitement, Adventure, Romance, which is all a true reader craves. 

I am giving the fans a link to the prelude to Daylight, better known as Prelude to DeathClick the link and for free you can meet Mattie and Graham.
