YA Author Amy Maurer Jones talks Wildflower!

Writing Belle's 2013 Author Program

Amy Maurer Jones writes YA fiction. And if you know me, you know that I love YA. Always have, always will. So I was excited when Amy offered to write up a guest post for Writing Belle and share a little about her novels with us today. And don't forget to check out the awesome giveaway at the bottom of this post!

Thank you so much for inviting me to share my latest release with your readers. Fly Away, the second book in The Wildflower Series released July 18, 2013 and has found its way into the Kindle Teen Historical Romance Best Sellers list along with the first book, Wildflower. It is also ranked in Hot New Releases in the same category. Both books are YA and they focus on a love triangle that spans over hundreds of years, the 17th century to present day.

The story revolves around three characters, Laney Stillwater, Joshua Bangs and Jordan Stone.

Laney is a Native American, teenage girl living in Plymouth, MASS. She is a member of the Wampanoag tribe. Her grandfather is the Shaman of the tribe and she has inherited his gifts. Laney loves her Wampanoag heritage but finds herself burdened by it. The people in her community do not understand or accept her beliefs and rituals, often making her a target for bullying at her high school. Making things more complicated, Laney is the reincarnate of Wildflower, a Shaman’s daughter from the time of 17th century Plymouth Colony.

Wildflower was promised by her Shaman father to a warrior named, Paco, but she fell in love with an Englishman by the name of Joshua Bangs. She met Joshua when his father, Edward Bangs brought him to the Wampanoag reservation to trade goods. Knowing their love was forbidden Wildflower cast a spell to forever bind her soul to the Englishman. Paco, still in love with Wildflower, sought help from the spirits so he might still have a chance with his promised bride and the spell became a curse.

Joshua recently lost his mother to cancer and relocated to Plymouth, MASS with his father. Joshua is the descendant of 17th century of Joshua Bangs. He and Laney shares dreams about their past life together.

Jordan is the boy every girl has a crush on at Plymouth North High. His flaxen hair, emerald green eyes mask his place in Laney’s world, but make no mistake, he believes that she is his and it is his duty to protect her.

If you're a fan of love triangles and books that mix reality and fantasy with the present and the past you should give The Wildflower series a try. 

There is one more book in the works for this series which I anticipate releasing in 2014.

Love can be tragic.

17th Century America: 

A Shaman’s daughter falls in love with an Englishman, 
only her hand has been promised to a warrior. 

Tears fall. 
Promises are broken. 
Rage is unleashed. 
Souls are bound or shattered. 

Present Day: 

Laney Stillwater dreams about a boy she has never met, 
but she longs for the attention of the ever popular and gorgeous, Jordan Stone. 

Time tempts change. 
Destined souls awaken. 
Love gets a second chance. 
Souls are bound or shattered. 

What will destiny offer this time? 

Reconciliation or more despair?

Purchase it here!

Joshua Bangs and Jordan Stone are vying for the love of Laney Stillwater. They can’t walk away because their souls have been bound by the spirits for all of eternity. 

In the second installment of The Wildflower Series, the stakes are higher than the guy getting the girl. Laney struggles with her feelings as the two boys fight for her affection, but a broken heart pales in comparison to the soul-devouring perils awaiting them in the spirit world.

Over the course of hundreds of years the past lives of the three reincarnates have proven time and time again that their love is beyond tragic. It's fatal.
