August Moon
by Tammy Morea
Release Date: May 2014

Summary from Goodreads:
What do you do when the one who broke your heart, is the only one who can fix it?

There is nothing in this world stronger than the powerful emotion of being in love.  Except, maybe the paralyzing pain of a broken heart.

Moving to a small unfamiliar beach town in the summer before her senior year of high school is really going to suck. Raven, a black haired beauty, from a well- off family was certain about that. Miserable in her circumstance’s, nothing could convince her otherwise, until Raven meets Quinn, a local with a love for surfing and a bad reputation to go with it. Despite the very different worlds they live in, their desire for each other is undeniable. Raven’s fears and misery start to vanish as she and Quinn fall deeper and deeper into each other.

But things change drastically when Raven is unknowingly used as a pawn, in a turn of disastrous events, caused by Quinn’s older brother.

The events that follow could silence Raven’s heart for eternity and completely destroy what’s left of Quinn’s soul.

August Moon is a captivating story of young love.  Bringing two unlikely hearts together.  Only to be shattered by one tortuous decision.  Putting these star-crossed lovers on course for the ultimate challenge of forgiveness.

Interview with Raven from August Moon by Tammy Morea

Today we have the opportunity to get to know Raven, the female Protagonist of August Moon. Please make her feel welcome!

T: Thanks for talking to us today Raven.
R: Oh! No problem, I’m always up for a conversation. I love to talk.

T:  Great! It’s much easier to interview someone who loves to talk. So you just moved from Brooklyn, a borough in New York City. To Atlantic Beach, a small beach town on Long Island. Are you finding it difficult to adjust to the change?
R: Well, it definitely was kind of a culture shock. Brooklyn is all congested with lots of people, buildings and traffic, plus there aren’t many trees. And Atlantic Beach is all wide open space, with the beach and all. The Air just seems cleaner, ya know.

T: It sounds like it’s a beautiful place to live. I’m glad you are adjusting well. It must be hard for you being that you’re going into your senior year of high school in the fall. Are you nervous about going to a new school?
R: I was very upset about it when my parents told me we were moving. I wanted to graduate with all my friends, plus I was worried that no one would like me. I am really lucky that my cousin Jo moved to Atlantic beach, two years ago, that made it a lot easier to make friends. So I’m not as nervous about going to my new high school in September.

T: Speaking of Jo, from what I understand she is not only your cousin, but your best friend. Did you see each other a lot growing up?
R: Just about every day! She lived down the block from me in Brooklyn. When she moved, I literally thought I was going to die. I cried for like a week straight.

T: Well then I am happy that you two are back together again!
R: Me too, “were thick as thieves”, as my Mom always says.

T: Is there a certain Boy who has captured your attention?
R: Yes, Quinn, but if you don’t mind, I’d rather not talk about him right now. It’s still very painful.

T:  I’m sorry, I did not mean to upset you, let’s forget about him and do something fun. Will you answer a few rapid-fire questions before you go to help everyone get to know you better?
R: Absolutely, those are fun! I’m ready…

T: Dogs or Cats?
R: Dogs, I like cats too, but I am definitely a dog person.

T: Vanilla or Chocolate?
R: Vanilla, always. I don’t really like chocolate. Weird, I know.

T: Books or movies?
R: Books are always better than the movie, I love to read. But I’m kinda a movie buff too.

T: Ketchup or mustard?
R: Oh definitely, ketchup.

T: Summer or winter?
R: Summer! Who likes the winter?

T: Looks like our time is up Raven, Thanks for stopping by. I guess we will have to check out your story in August Moon to see what has made you so upset by just mentioning Quinn’s name. Whatever it is, I do hope you feel better soon.
R: Yea, me too. Thanks for having me.

About the Author

I am a Young Adult Author, My first Novel August Moon will be released in late spring 2014. Besides writing I love to read Romance, YA, ChicLit, Fantasy, Paranormal and a good auto biography never hurt anyone. My other greatest passion is animals, I love them all, but I have a weakness for dogs, I wish I could save every single one that needs saving. I have a dog Tank, he’s my heart and he’s a big… mush, I bite his face all day long and he lets me. I also love mini pigs, one day I will have one. My fiancĂ© Chris doesn’t think so, but what does he know. I think I’m an amateur photographer, but really I just like to take pictures and sometimes they come out really good. I love Riding on the back of Chris’s Harley, it’s my favorite form of transportation. I’m obsessed with the Twilight Saga, those books literally changed my life. Tattoos are sexy, I have seven. I pretty much love anything with a skull on it. My thumb is very green, just ask my air plants. I can cook my ass off, just ask Chris. I enjoy being active in all different ways- hiking, biking, camping, taking Tank for a 3 mile walk, working out or sitting on the couch all day catching up on my DVR recordings. I love to dress up and wear make up and accessories (I have a ring addiction, that I think I might need some counseling for) and heels, but I can get dirty on a camping trip or hang out in my sweats and a tee all day, I will even walk Tank in Pj’s with no make -up on(yep, you heard me, Pj’s, no make up- outside in public) I come from a big crazy Italian family and I wouldn’t have it any other way. And just because I want to give her props, I think Marilyn Monroe is the sexiest, hottest, bad-ass bitch in the history of bitches ( bitches meaning all us girls.)
