About juliabadewrites

Hello! My name is Julia Bade. I am a happy wife and mommy of 9-year-old twins, an 11-year old son and my two "bonus" kids, ages 25and 23. I'm an assistant professor of English at an amazing community college, and writing is my jam. I've mastered sleep deprivation and the art of stretching 24 hours til it's close to snapping! My first novel, THE FERIA was published by Soul Mate Publishing. My newest book, THE MELODY OF US is on submission. Fingers and toesies crossed!

I want to write a book

juliabadewrites

I often give workshops on writing and publishing to a standing room only audience filled with hopeful faces of those just getting started.

When the workshop ends, I’ll always have a few who wait patiently through all the goodbyes to have a word with me.

“I want to start writing a book!” They’ll exclaim with a look of determination that instantly turns to defeat. “But I don’t know how to get started.”

Well, the truth is, there’s only one way to get started: START.

Writing a book often feels daunting because aspiring writers often see it just as that. Sitting down and writing it from the “Once upon a time” all the way through character development and plot twists, to “And they lived happily ever after.” Oh! And don’t forget proofreading, editing, beta readers, more editing…

But honestly, writing a book is more than that. It’s laying awake at night…

I want to write a book

I often give workshops on writing and publishing to a standing room only audience filled with hopeful faces of those just getting started.

When the workshop ends, I’ll always have a few who wait patiently through all the goodbyes to have a word with me.

“I want to start writing a book!” They’ll exclaim with a look of determination that instantly turns to defeat. “But I don’t know how to get started.”

Well, the truth is, there’s only one way to get started: START.

Writing a book often feels daunting because aspiring writers often see it just as that. Sitting down and writing it from the “Once upon a time” all the way through character development and plot twists, to “And they lived happily ever after.” Oh! And don’t forget proofreading, editing, beta readers, more editing…

But honestly, writing a book is more than that. It’s laying awake at night plotting. It’s getting an idea while in the bank line and writing notes on the back of your checkbook. It’s talking to friends, especially writer friends (don’t have any? The Twitter writing community is astounding!) about your ideas and seeing if they can help. It’s sitting down and writing your opening line- which might change one or seven times. It’s getting through the first chapter with tears of both joy and hate. It’s killing darlings and bringing them back again. Oops. It’s weeks, months, years… YOUR baby means YOUR timeline.

So if you want to start writing a book, even just by saying those magical words, “I want to start writing a book,” I’d love to be the first to tell you- “You probably already have.” Now keep at it! 🙂

Andre, a punished servant of Hades is forced to acquire souls on earth to appease his sentence, but he falls for a college cheerleader named Dalia, who exposes feelings and actions that threaten his existence and soon hers. Dalia can’t figure out who the “new guy” on the cheer team is, but she wants nothing to do with him. Mostly because she’s mad hot for him. After a broken heart both romantically and from a more personal place involving her best friend’s small daughter, she isn’t ready to give up what’s left of her heart anyway. But one night of partying reveals too much and soon, neither one of them can ignore the longing stirring between them and are sucked into a world of love, danger, death, and some of the most difficult choices they’ll have to make. -HEARTBEAT by Julia Bade

Soul Promise – Book II in the Soul Mate Series

Hello, All! I wanted to take a moment to introduce you to my beautiful friend and fellow author, Rachel Walter!

See? I told you she was beautiful!

Rachel has written a new book, SOUL PROMISE, which is book two in her Soul Mate series. It’s only $1.99 on Amazon. I’m halfway through the book, and what I love more than anything is the raw emotion that she has invested in each of her characters. I’ve ugly cried and I’ve laughed out loud at 1 a.m. with a grumpy husband shooshing me. I love the slow burning love that often comes off as hate between hot Henry and sweet Skeeter. I love the world building and magic that takes me away with every page. Here’s the beautiful cover.

 

Soul promise Cover Hi, Henry. Howya doin’?

 

 

Here’s the book’s description:

“Broken is finding the light and the healing you crave,
and knowing you can never have it.”

After the attack on his sister and his newfound abilities forming, Henry Williams is struggling to keep it all together. His wolf does not allow him to sleep, and he is beginning to hear voices, torturing him mercilessly.

Henry feels as though there is a war brewing inside of him and he is unable to control it. As a protector, he must find a way to fight his inner demons before he is left vulnerable to the real ones.

But an unexpected love finds Henry and he tries hard to resist it. Will Henry be able to overcome his inner demons? Will he be able to protect his mate?

*** This is book number 2 in this series. Please note that it is suggested to read the series in sequential order. ***

*Warning* This novel is intended for mature YA readers. 15 + for language and mild violence.

 

Now go and get it!! 🙂
