Paranormal Romance Writer Lynn Rush Launches ‘Awaited’ – The Second Novel of the Wasteland Trilogy – and Announces Global Blog Tour

(Phoenix, AZ – May 4, 2012) – Paranormal romance books are hot, hot, hot … and blog tours to promote author’s books are the hot way to promote new novels. Prolific Arizona author Lynn Rush (25 novels written) writes in the paranormal and launched Awaited, the second novel of the Wasteland trilogy on May 1, 2012 online at Amazon.com and other websites like All Romance E-Books. Next week starts her global blog tour. Rush is the genre-breaking author of Crescent Moon Press’s (New York City, NY) newest 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.”

The Global Blog Tour starts on May 7, 2012. Look for Lynn Rush on these blog sites:

About Us

LYNN RUSH – In her own words:“When I started out on this writing journey, it felt like such a far away dream. 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 found motivation to continue on my dream - dreams of something bigger than all of us. Whether it’s writing, music, dancing …” Driven to write, Lynn Rush often sees her characters by closing her eyes watching their story unfold in her mind. Book reviewers say that her plots are well developed, and the writing is strong and full of artistic details – stunning in both characterization and her action-packed storylines. A prolific author who began her writing career in 2008 now has more than 25 novels to her credit. Six are currently under contract with Crescent Moon Press. Wasteland, first novel in the trilogy was released in July 2011 and continues to receive five-star reviews. Currently in the advance reader phase, the second in the series, Awaited is garnering rave reviews and scheduled for a May 2012 release. 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.

BOOK REVIEWS: “WASTELAND is a fast paced, sexy, romantic tale with characters who instantly capture your attention…and your heart. The hero is honorable and darkly tormented, while the heroine is idealistic and strong. Lynn Rush has created a world of good and evil—where nothing is quite as it seems. I lost myself in the story and truly enjoyed every minute of it.” - Rebecca Zanetti, author of FATED “From the first action-packed scene, AWAITED grabs you and doesn’t let go until its awesome conclusion.” - Caridad Piñeiro, NY Times Best-Selling Author.
