Romancing the Bookworm Book Trailer Giveaway

The Romancing the Bookworm Trailer is here!


Isn't it beautiful?

I'd like to thank the amazing Traci for putting this trailer together. *confetti*

To celebrate, I'm revealing a scene from the book. Also, I have a giveaway for all of you exclusively for the release of the trailer.

Let's start with the scene:


Several things happened at once.
         I stepped in, my eyes on the tile floor. A piercing scream later, I glanced up in time to see Tamara in a skimpy robe slip on a wet spot. Her leg went up like she’d aimed a kick at my chin. For a split second, I got an eyeful of Tamara’s…holy sweet mother of God. She had nothing—not a stitch of clothing—underneath that robe. I couldn’t decide if I was the luckiest man in the world or cursed for having the image of her naked in my head without an outlet for what it did to my body.
My hand whipped out and grabbed her wrist before the floor gave her a concussion, bracing and pulling her to me. She squeaked the second she slammed into my bare chest. I only grunted because hot damn her body against mine…unreal. I held her close, sure my heart was punching her in the face it was beating so hard. Based on how thin her robe felt against my skin, I knew she felt more than just that. To make my torture that much sweeter, her nipples pebbled against me. Sweet merciful Jesus.
I couldn’t decide if I wanted to let her go or slip the robe off and prop her up on the sink. It would be easy to slide my hands from her arms to the backs of her thighs and lift.
Yeah, Xavier Bartholomew Solomon, what would your mother think?
I hissed, twice in one day ashamed of the thoughts rocketing through my head. Tamara deserved better than a quickie in a bathroom. I swallowed the mighty lump in my throat so I could speak, but she did something that made all my blood drain to a specific spot between my legs. She opened her fists so her hands lay flat against my chest, a thumb brushing against my nipple. It felt like lightning striking my groin. Then she lifted her head, closed her eyes, and inhaled deeply.
An involuntary groan left my throat. Every muscle in my body strained.
Damn. Did she just sniff me

The Wonderful World of NA according to Karen Grove of Entangled Embrace

As part of the Entangled Family, I write for two lines. The first is for YA and more recently the Embrace line, which is the sickest publisher of New Adult fiction out there. Watch out of the official launch sometime in September-October. Lots of awesome titles to come. Including a little known novel called IMPULSE.

Since I'm part of the Embrace line and love writing all things New Adult, I sent an email to our awesome Editorial Director and boldly demanded an interview. Instead of firing me, she actually said yes! Lesson: You never know if you'll get it if you don't ask.

So, let's get on with the interview, shall we?

Gather 'round and welcome to the blog the amazing, the luminous Karen Grove! *applause*


Kate Evangelista: My readers (many of them aspiring authors) would like to get to know you better for stalking purposes. Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you found your way to Entangled.

Karen Grove: For stalking purposes, eh? I think my age is going to show on this one. I’ve been around publishing since 1982…starting as a book design intern at St. Martin’s Press. I then moved to Hearst Magazines, where I was a junior print buyer and then a production assistant. Then, in 1984, I moved from NY to CA, and spent a year as a production assistant at Academic Press. When Harcourt created their Gulliver Books children’s imprint, I moved over there as an editorial assistant, working my way up through the ranks to Senior Editor, working on board books, picture books, nonfiction, middle-grade, and young adult. For the past 20 years, however, I’ve concentrated in young adult fiction, which has always been my love. Over these years, I received some wonderful submissions that were just a bit too old for YA yet not what we would consider “adult” fiction. With no place for them on the bookstore shelves or means to get the word out, I sadly had to decline them for publication. Today, I’m absolutely thrilled that New Adult is finally being recognized, and I’m doubly thrilled that Entangled has embraced this category and is making a home for these wonderful stories.

KE: Alright, let’s get into the nitty of this interview. How would you define New Adult as a genre? How is it different from YA?

KG: I don’t really consider New Adult a genre. It’s more of a category—just as YA is a category—covering a wide variety of genres, such as romance, contemporary, sci-fi, fantasy, mystery, suspense, historical, etc. YA and NA are very much tied together, the main difference being the perspective from which the story is told. NA is a time between high school and adulthood, where young people are legally adults but still testing the waters of just what that means. They deal with many of the same issues of identity and exploration faced in YA, but there’s a stronger sense of breaking away from parents, discovering one’s future, and taking on greater responsibilities. The NA protagonist’s world is bigger, and there’s more experience behind a character’s decisions and thought processes…and a lot more independence.

KE: A few years ago, YA was everyone’s darling category. It seemed like every author had to write something YA. Now, YA’s naughtier older sister has made herself known. What do you think is the reason for the sudden resurgence of New Adult?

KG: I think there has always been a need and desire for NA fiction—as an editor, I saw these manuscripts come across my desk, and a lot of them were worthy of publication. The problem was that there was no way to sell it. Bookstores didn’t have an NA section (and most still don’t), and so there was never a clear picture for how to shelve these titles—adult or teen—and get them into the hands of their intended audience. Placing them in either section risked their being lost. After all, there were no review journals for this category, either, so how would readers find out about them? It was a risk for print publishers to take them on; in what was already a risky business. But with the rise of digital publishing and a wide variety of online review sources and bloggers, there was finally a way for people to learn about these books. Publishers didn’t have to sink tons of money into printing books as a “test” to see if there was truly a market for these books. And they could get the word out about them without having to invest in pricey ads. More than any other factor, the digital world finally made NA fiction a possibility. And now print publishers and bookstores are listening.

KE: Just because you make your character’s age eighteen and above does that make the story NA?

KG: Not at all. The age of the main character is merely a guideline. We like our NA characters to be 18-24 years old—just as most YA fiction prefers characters from 14-18, and in high school. But for both categories, those are simply guidelines. What makes the stories YA or NA is more the approach the author—and the main character—takes in viewing his or her world and the decisions that must be made. I have received manuscripts that “feel” YA with 21-year-old protagonists; those characters must be aged down. And there are manuscripts with 17-year-old protagonists that need to be aged up for the way they approach their world. Does this mean that there aren’t mature teens or immature adults? No. But for a story to be successful, the character’s age, voice, world, experience, and decisions must all work together to create a believable story.

KE: What about the popularity of the contemporary romance genre in NA? Why does it seem to work better for NA than for YA? I’m basing my question on the number of NA novels topping the Amazon Top 100 List compared to YA, especially in ebooks. Not that I watch this list on an almost daily basis, of course.

KG: LOL. I think contemporary romance was the natural place for NA fiction to begin. Emerging adults are in the throes of discovering their sexuality, and there is a limit on what can be explored in teen fiction. There are a number of reasons for this: some teens are not yet emotionally ready for explorations of the sexual kind, school libraries do not want these books on their shelves for obvious reasons, and what we call “gatekeepers” are very much in play in YA fiction. As they should be. New Adult fiction has allowed a voice for this tumultuous period in people’s lives—where exploration, conflicts, and, yes, mistakes are made, and survived. Readers want to read about others going through similar trials. And I think one of the reasons for the success of NA is that the audience is so broad: teens reading “up”, readers from 18-24, and adults touching base with their younger years. They say that no matter how old we get, we still think of ourselves as we were in our twenties.

KE: NA versus Adult. When do we know we’re crossing the line? How far can New Adult test the boundaries in terms of storylines without venturing into the Adult genre?

KG: Crossing the line truly depends on the perspective. A story about 18-24 year olds told from the point of view of an older—or younger—woman or man is crossing the line. The viewpoint must be youthful and without the benefit of years of experience, yet old enough to have developed a stronger sense of identity and responsibility than a teen. After all, these protagonists are experiencing many of these things for the first time. Just as in YA or Adult, the voice must believably reflect the age and life experiences of the main character. In terms of storylines, NA is all about testing boundaries; the only boundaries are set by the voice and point of view.

KE: As the editorial director of Embrace, the sickest imprint specializing in NA (and I’m not just saying this because Impulse is part of this imprint), what are you looking for in a submission? What kind of New Adult manuscript will call to you?

KG: Yes…we’re the sickest imprint specializing in NA, though I may be biased. :-) For me, personally, voice is always the element I look for. It must be strong, unique, and bring the characters to life. A strong voice gives a character legs. It allows that character to walk down any street and feel “real”; to find themselves in any situation and be true to their heart; to relate to themselves and others consistently and with conviction. I’m looking for NA fiction in all genres—romance, suspense/thrillers, mystery, urban fantasy, paranormal, contemporary. At this moment, I’m especially looking for contemporaries…college stories, stories with MCs who choose to enter the workforce rather than go to college, protagonists taking a gap year, entering the military, floundering after high school, struggling to define themselves as adults. Whatever the story, I’m looking for characters who leap off the page with powerful voice.

KE: What are your goals for the Embrace line? What do you envision for its future?

KG: My goal for the Embrace line is to release strong, quality fiction that readers can relate with; that young readers can see themselves in or test the waters, so to speak, vicariously; that older readers can feel themselves drawn back in time to relive the feelings of their past. I want our books to embrace the endless possibilities and potential that beckons to emerging adults, showing the failures and triumphs, heartaches and joy, relationships and independence that each person experiences throughout their lives. And I want Embrace to be known for giving a damn good read.

KE: Now, last question. If my enterprising friends would, let’s say, want to submit to the Embrace line, what do they need to know besides what’s on the website before flooding the Submittable? Can you give us some inside scoop?

KG: Inside scoop, eh? Hmmm. Simple: Make sure you have a great story. :-) Too easy? Well, a few suggestions: You can be assured that all manuscripts that come into Embrace are read, but the key is creating a great cover pitch so that more than one editor chooses to read your story in full. The more eyes, the more chances that your story will resonate with just the right editor who will want to champion your book. And make sure you’ve gone over your manuscript and eliminated typos and grammatical issues as much as possible. No one expects a perfectly clean manuscript, but with each typo, odd sentences left over from a previous revision, and contradictions, the more likely the reader will be jarred out of your story. You have a captive audience, don’t allow these “speed bumps” to disrupt your pacing.

KE: Thank you so much for gracing us with your virtual presence today! We learned a ton. Do you have any final nuggets of wisdom as an editor of New Adult for all our readers out there?

KG: Be proud of yourself as an NA writer, and strive to stretch your wings. New Adult is in its infancy and you’re a pioneer. As such it’s up to you to test the waters, expand and define the category, write the rules. The possibilities are endless. Above all, band together with other New Adult writers and create a support system for one another. NA began with word of mouth, and it will grow even stronger with word of mouth. Praise one another, cheer for your fellow NA writers, share your love for the category. For with each NA title that garners success, that reflects favorably on you and your stories. NA is here to stay…and it’s all because of you.


I love this interview. Karen really gets into the heart of New Adult and I'm so proud to be working with her as an author in the Embrace line. 

It's my hope that through this interview Karen and I were able to inspire all of you to keep on writing and reading! New Adult is a fun category and I can't wait to share with everyone what I'm working on.

  • My Attachment to the Old

    I’ve always had a soft spot for old people. It’s my belief that hurt anyone else but children and old folks. My father is eighty-three. This is where my attachment to anyone above seventy comes from. I love old people the way I love my father.

    On a recent trip to Singapore, my mother and I got into a cab driven by a very old man. Most likely he was the same age as my dad and still he worked. Not once did I feel concerned for my safety. I immediately felt comfortable riding in his cab. I told him where we needed to go. Generally, I thought the hotel we stayed at was well-known. But when I mentioned the hotel to our cab driver, he didn’t know. He got this look on his face like my dad would get when he was struggling to understand something.

    This tugged at my heart. I actually felt tears well up. I just wanted to reach out and hug him.

    Instead, I mentioned a popular destination near the hotel and he immediately got it.

    Happiness all around, we were on our way. It didn’t even bother me that we were driving really slowly. I figured, better to see the sights. This is why I got to take the picture on display in this post. Lots of trees in Singapore.

    Then, as we neared our hotel, I began thinking: did this old man have someone who loved him? Why were they still letting him work? He should be relaxing, enjoying the final years of his life. But, then again, maybe driving a cab on a daily basis in the streets of Singapore made him happy.

    Another, sadder, thought hit me. What if he had no one and driving a cab was his only way of providing for himself. This thought broke my heart fifty million ways. I love my dad. He loves his life. We take care of him; make sure he never wants for anything like he used to provide everything we could ever want when we were young. He’s always the first person on our minds when we leave the house to watch a movie or have lunch. We always make sure we bring him home something. Food. Even his absolute favorite: a box of chocolates.

    I wondered: did the old man driving the cab have someone thinking of him that way?

    When my mom and I got out of the cab, we paid him more than the fare. It felt like the right thing to do. I honestly didn’t want to leave that cab. The irrational part of me wanted to take him home and make sure he was taken cared off. I wanted to make sure he was okay. That someone loved him.

    I prayed really hard that he had someone in his life who loved him. Who woke up every day remembering him. Who cooked for him. Who made sure he was alright.

    Even now, as I write this post, I still think of him. I wonder if he’s doing fine. If he’s well fed. If he has a warm bed to sleep at night. That even if driving a cab made him feel useful and happy, I wished he didn’t have to anymore.

    I don’t know why I’m crying as I type this, but I really wish I could know where that old man cab driver is now. I really wish I could help him the way I help my dad with everything he needs on a daily basis.

    In the back of my mind, I picture him having a huge family who loved him very much. I imagine a brood of grandkids of made him laugh. Kids that made him proud. A wife that loved him with everything she had. That’s the way I want to think of him because the alternative just kills me.

    Universe, please let him be okay. Please make sure that he, wherever he is, is loved. Please make it so that he doesn’t have to drive a cab anymore. That there is someone who can take care of him. So that he can relax and do other things that makes him happy. Please, universe. Please let him be okay.

    A Hot One

    Summers in the Philippines are a peculiar experience. In the first month, the sun shines down on you but the winds are cool. You enjoy yourself. Then, just when you’re comfortable, the second month comes along and brings with it the kind of sunlight that bites into the skin. This is the time you start wearing less. Only when you think you can’t handle the heat anymore, the third month arrives. The worse of the three by far because of the humidity. This heat plasters any article of clothing onto your skin like Velcro. Getting dressed brings with it a bucket of sweat.

    What does summer in the Philippines have to do with my CMP Summer Lovin’ post, you might ask?

    Everything and none at all. Where you might be at the beginning of summer I am already entering the rainy season. *laughs* It’s actually raining as I write this post.

    Since you are possibly in the beginnings of summer, I’d like to present to you a recipe that will guarantee a fun way to beat the heat.

    Let’s start by making some Basil and Lime Sorbet!

    It will definitely be a crowd pleaser on the hottest of days.

    Here’s what you need to do:

    1.      Boil 200g sugar and 235ml water for one minute.
    2.      Remove from heat. Combine with 180ml fresh lime juice and 20 fresh basil leaves in a blender.
    3.      Pour into a container, cover and freeze for two hours.
    4.      Break up the frozen mixture and blend until smooth.
    5.      Return to the container, cover and store in the freezer until ready to serve.

    There you go! Five simple steps and you’ve got a yummy, healthy treat for the coming summer months. I would also suggest making popsicles out of the mixture. Instead of a single container, try putting the blended mixture in an ice tray and add toothpicks for handles. If you have a popsicle mould, all the better.

    Okay, now that I’ve given you something to beat the heat, I’ll amp up the steam with the perfect summer read.

    My very first new adult contemporary romance novel, Romancing the Bookworm, comes out July 9. Here’s the blurb:

    Sometimes, even the best-laid plans can unravel.

    It's spring break, and Tamara Winters would rather stay on campus and read romance novels than flaunt her size-fourteen body on a beach. But her best friend, Ronni, has other ideas. Against her wishes, Tamara is whisked away to picturesque Maverick Bay, where she's wrangled into waiting tables with Ronni at the Shore Shack for its busy week leading to Maverick's Surf Invitational. There she meets fellow schoolmate Xavier Solomon, the Invitational's organizer and campus womanizer by reputation. From the moment Tamara sees him emerging from the waves like a hero in of one of her romance novels, all she wants to do is run away from the feelings he inspires in her.

    Little does she know Xavier has been watching her for weeks now. In fact, after failed attempts at asking her out on campus, he's concocted a crazy plan: fabricating romantic situations straight out of her favorite books. Xavier quickly realizes that if Tamara gets a whiff of his designs, he might as well spell CREEPER across his forehead. Yet as they grow closer, he's convinced it's a risk worth taking. What he hasn't planned on, of course, is his drug-addicted, alcoholic stepbrother, who decides to join the fun and put a wrench in Xavier’s scheme.

    Spring break is proving hotter than Tamara expected. Will her romance novels be able to compete?

    Take Romancing the Bookworm with you at the beach this summer along with your sorbet! 

    In case you're still deciding, here’s a yummy picture of Xavier:


    Is that your sorbet melting? I thought so. It's not over yet. Here’s a snippet of the story:

    Holy shit! She passed out. She actually fucking passed out at the sight of me. What the hell was going on here? Last time I checked, I hadn’t transformed into the Elephant Man. This wasn’t the way I thought our first meeting would go. I shook my head in disbelief as I dropped to my knees and shielded her from the harsh mid-day sun. Mostly, I blamed the stupid tent she was wearing. No one should wear that much when at the beach forchistsakes. She looked like kelp swallowed her whole from all that fabric.

    When Hudson left for the bus stop, I’d lost my appetite. The nerves I felt that morning twisted my stomach in knots again. I finished my beer and slammed the bottle on the bar. I quickly went through the different scenarios I’d cooked up for this next phase of the plan. The First Meeting. Very important stuff. 

    I left the Shore Shack and watched out for them on the beach. I knew Hudson would bring them to the Shack eventually. The second I spotted her walking behind the twins, rubbing sunscreen on her arms, my heart stopped. This was it. The perfect scene flashed before my eyes. I rushed into the water until I was completely submerged. Then, almost reenacting the way James Bond waded out of the water in Casino Royale to the letter sans my dignity, I walked out of the water. I knew her eyes were on me. I’d seen her stop and stare the second my head broke the water’s surface. I had to force myself to keep going. I kept reminding myself of the plan. My reputation had to take one for the team. I’d made up my mind and nothing short of hospitalization would stop me. 

    I thought everything had gone well. I’d waded out of the water while keeping a straight face. Even from a distance, I saw her eyes rake over my body. I knew I had her when I got close enough to see her blush and swallow. In my head a small voice actually said this might actually work. 

    I celebrated too soon. 

    After Hudson made the introductions like we were all meeting for the first time—the jackass could have played things cooler—I reached out to shake her hand. God damn if my fingers didn’t twitch at the anticipation of actually getting to touch her. And then her eyes rolled into the back of her head.


    So? Are you ready for one hot summer?

    Let Xavier romance you!

    ARC Tour

    We are organizing a blog tour for the New Adult contemporary romance, Romancing the Bookworm, by Kate Evangelista and Omnific Publishing. The tour is scheduled for July 15-20, 2013. Reviewers will receive an electronic Advanced Review Copy (ARC). Those who sign up agree to make this the top post on the day they choose during the tour.
