(Phoenix, AZ – May 1, 2012) – Paranormal romance books are hot, hot, hot … prolific Arizona author Lynn Rush (25 novels written) writes in the paranormal and is launching Awaited, the second novel of theWasteland trilogy May 1, 2012 online at Amazon.com and other websites like All Romance E-Books. Rush is the genre-breaking author of Crescent Moon Press’s (New York City, NY) hottest category – New Adult .  Rush says she writes paranormal romances for the New Adult audience whose ages range from 18 to 24. While New Adult fiction may not be the "hot and heavy" romance featured in novels for adults, it’s a touch warmer than the “sweet” romance of the young adult novels.

“There’s a lot that can happen when you’re eighteen or even twenty five years old.  The fact is that those same events feel very different at that age than they do when you are twelve years old – or forty years old,” explained Rush. “Because I write Paranormal romance, sometimes my characters are centuries old - but their human contacts are in the new adult age range.”

With the major book launch, Rush’s publisher has added a special sweet deal for her readers – they’ve reduced the eBook version of book one in the trilogy, Wasteland, to $2.99 for the first day of the launch, May 1, and only on All Romance E-Books who rated Wasteland a Best Seller at www.AllRomanceEbooks.com

“When I started out on this writing journey, it felt like such a far away dream,” said Rush. “I constantly asked myself, ‘Really? Me? A writer?’ Then when I was published I still asked, ‘Really? Me? An author?’ Along the way things inspired me, obstacles shot up, and doors both opened and closed … but through my faith, family, and friends, I have found motivation to continue on my dream - dreams of something bigger than all of us.”

Rush continues, “The entire process is so exciting. I am enjoying the media tours, the blogs, reviewers ... it’s all a blast. On May 1, Launch Day for Awaited, I appear on Talkshoe Live with Tamaria,” which is a live radio talk show that gives authors a voice.  I am having the time of my life!”

Positive, rave reviews – over 100+ 5 Star Ratings –  keep pouring in encouraging Rush to continue in her pursuit of her dreams. Here’s what some are already saying about Awaited:

The Story:  Awaited – The Voice is a Powerful Thing …

Russell Leonard is a centuries-old Guardian who’s lost faith in his purpose. So when he’s charged with procuring the first female Guardian in over two centuries, he can only hope it’s the red-headed beauty who’s been haunting his dreams for months. And if it is, he intends to claim her as his. But when he finds his dream woman, Annabelle is mute and bears no Guardian’s Mark.

He soon realizes she’s been tainted by an ancient evil. Russell must somehow release the secrets trapped within this delicate soul to help her tap into the only weapon powerful enough to silence a millennia-old demon—her voice.

The Story:  Wasteland – Book One in the Trilogy

Bound by the blood contract his human mother signed four centuries ago, half-demon David Sadler must obey his demonic Master’s order to capture fifteen-year-old Jessica Hanks. But as he learns more about her, he realizes she may be the key to freedom from his demonic enslavement.

The only obstacle – Jessica’s distractingly beautiful Guardian, Rebeka Abbott. He must not give into their steamy chemistry, or he will lose his humanity. But fresh off a quarter millennia of sensory deprivation as punishment for not retrieving his last target, David may not be able to resist temptation long enough to save what’s left of his human soul.

Never planning on becoming an author, Rush says an idea for a new book may hit her when she's waking up or going to the grocery store. One such idea came to her as she walked through a local bookstore. A girl wearing a blue tutu with a red leather jacket passed her. "She ended up in the opening scene of one of my novels," Rush laughingly explains.
