The One with the First Two Chapters of INSPIRE!!!

YOU GUYSSSSSS. THIS IS REAL LIFE. 2 WEEKS UNTIL INSPIRE AND I’M FREAKING OUT.

*breathes into a paper bag* If you’re wondering what all the fuss is about, it’s because I have a new series starting in TWO WEEKS!!

INSPIRE by Cora Carmack
Coming December 15th, 2014

Kalliope lives with one purpose.

To inspire.

As an immortal muse, she doesn’t have any other choice. It’s part of how she was made. Musicians, artists, actors—they use her to advance their art, and she uses them to survive. She moves from one artist to the next, never staying long enough to get attached. But all she wants is a different life— a normal one. She’s spent thousands of years living lie after lie, and now she’s ready for something real.

Sweet, sexy, and steady, Wilder Bell feels more real than anything else in her long existence. And most importantly… he’s not an artist. He doesn’t want her for her ability. But she can’t turn off the way she influences people, not even to save a man she might love. Because in small doses, she can help make something beautiful, but her ability has just as much capacity to destroy as it does to create. The longer she stays, the more obsessed Wilder will become. It’s happened before, and it never turns out well for the mortal.

Her presence may inspire genius.

But it breeds madness, too.

EEEEEEP!! Now, you guys have been asking me a lot of questions about Inspire, so I thought this would be a good time to address some of them. 


 How can I make sure I don’t miss out on Inspire?
You can add it on Goodreads, and you can pre-order now exclusively through iBooks

But what if I have a Kindle/Nook/e-reader that doesn’t support iBooks? Can I still pre-order?
Inspire will be available across all e-book retailers on release day! So if you search “inspire cora carmack” on Amazon or BN.com right now, nothing will show up – but don’t worry! It will be there on December 15!

Will there ever be a paperback version? I like being able to smell the pages while I read. 
Much like my first book, Losing It, Inspire will start out as e-book only. But I’m hoping to have a paperback available sometime in first few months of 2015.  (And trust me, I love new book smell just as much as the next girl!)

Can I get Inspire in [insert country here]?
Dec 15th is the worldwide publishing date for the e-book in English.  Currently, there are no foreign language releases to announce.

What made you choose to write NA Paranormal?
 For ages, I’ve been talking about wanting more New Adult paranormal and fantasy books. And like a good little author, I continued working on my contracted books, waiting patiently for that big breakout paranormal book that would get the tide rolling and start the paranormal boom that I so desperately wanted.

I waited and waited and waited, and then I got tired of waiting.

I’ve been lucky the past few years to be able to chase my dreams, and this is the next big dream for me. Most of the books that have shaped me as a person are fantasy. Most of the authors I idolize write fantasy. It’s those kinds of stories that first kindled my love for writing, and I’m so eager to finally be able to share this side of myself with you all. 
 
But is there still kissing??
Oh yes, my friends. Don’t fret. There is PLENTY of kissing and sexy-time. And, because it’s me, plenty of awkwardly hilarious situations as well. 😉


So what made you decide to return to self-publishing?
 I’m choosing to go indie because it feels like the best choice for this particular book. I’ve been eager to branch out into speculative fiction for a while now, but the problem was always figuring out the when. There’s been this strange dichotomy where some readers are ready and willing for NA to branch out into other subgenres, whereas other readers are still predominantly interested in the contemporary romance that began the NA boom. This makes NA fantasy still a pretty big risk for publishers (especially considering shelf space for NA in bookstores is still fluid and unpredictable). So for Inspire, it was the perfect choice to go indie. It’s risky to jump into a new subgenre, but also SUPER exciting!!

How many books will be in the series?
As of now, I’m planning on this being a two-book series…but as some of you may know, my characters tend to have minds of their own, so there’s a chance there could be more. 😉

I want to help spread the word! What can I do?
Tell your friends! Tweet about Inspire, post on Facebook, tell random people on the street – every single bit of buzz helps! You can also join Cora’s Crew, which is a Facebook group for all things Inspire-related. 


Do you have a time machine to make December 15 get here sooner?
I wish!! 

But while I don’t have a TARDIS or the ability to make time move faster, I DO have…..THE FIRST TWO CHAPTERS OF INSPIRE!!!


Eeeep! Hope you enjoyed that sneak peek! Want to read more?

    Do you need a love spell to get your ex lover back from a real spell caster !!

    An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my husband back to me.. My name is Natasha Johnson,i live in Florida,USA,and I’m happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn’t love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{bravespellcaster@gmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn’t call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website { http://enchantedscents.tripod.com/lovespell/},if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to “bringing your ex back. So thanks to the Dr Brave for bringing back my husband ,and brought great joy to my family once again. {bravespellcaster@gmail.com},Thanks for reading.
