BLOG TOUR [Guest Post] Wide Awake by Shelly Crane


Author Shelly Crane has stopped by with a guest post for the Wide Awake Blog Tour!

Locking lips, smooching, necking, pecking, kissing... My absolute favorite parts to write.
If done correctly, with just enough description to make you melt, but force your imagination as well, you should be able to feel all the emotions even without words between the two characters.
Now, I don't have a process or a plan when I write, especially kissing scenes. I think it should flow and make you feel exactly like it were happening to you when you read it. You should know it's coming and feel the anticipation of it just as the character does. It should just come into the story when it's natural and give you butterflies, give you chills, give you shivers, give you a blush stretching from your neck to your cheeks.
You should be consumed with giddiness when you read a truly fantastic kissing scene. I hope that when you pick up one of my books, that you feel every emotion, every touch, that you can imagine exactly the way they both connect down to the goose bumps and lips and tongues and fingers through the hair.
Best wishes and happy endings,
Shelly Crane

  Book Description:   A girl. A coma. A life she can't remember. When Emma Walker wakes up in the hospital with no knowledge of how she got there, she learns that she's been in a coma for six months. Strangers show up and claim to be her parents, but she can't remember them. She can't remember anyone. Not her friends, not even her boyfriend. Even though she can't remember, everyone wants her to just pick up where she left off, but what she learns about the 'old her' makes her start to wish she'd never woken up. Her boyfriend breaks up with the new girl he's dating to be with her, her parents want her to start planning for college, her friends want their leader back, and her physical therapist with the hazel eyes keeps his distance to save his position at the hospital. Will she ever feel like she recognizes the girl in the mirror?
