Kindle Scout is the opportunity for my never-before-published novel to receive marketing by Amazon, your vote would be such a gift! If you’re an author, you know what an amazing thing visibility is. Amazon will market my book in a way I normally wouldn’t have access to, but I need your vote. Amazon has already decided that they think this story is top-notch, but they want to know what you think.

I hate writing the synopsis. Every. Damn. Time. The writing process for each book is unique. My skill level improves with each new release. My readership grows at every publisher that sends me a contract. These things I know; however, I have entered uncharted territory with the new book I just finished titled, Moonlight’s Lure. This story has consumed me in a way other stories haven’t. While I always enjoy writing my books, this one has a special meaning to me. This story has changed the way I think and feel about my writing. I can’t wait to share it with you, but first I’m looking for the best home I can find for this book. Many of you have emailed me to ask why I'm not releasing as much lately and it's been because I've been working on this book.
Here’s the blurb…
Bianca Archer watched her thirteen-year-old daughter, Chessa, leave on a camping trip to reconnect with her absentee father, Lucas. Two days later Bianca lived through the worst nightmare of every parent. Her daughter is missing, and Lucas was found gruesomely murdered. She’s sure the off-the-grid commune in the woods took her child and killed her ex. Her daughter is alive. Bianca is certain with the entirety of her maternal instinct, and she’s not giving up until she brings her Chessa home.
Law Foster has a pack to protect. The last thing he needs is the nosy Archer woman lurking around his people’s sanctuary. He has a duty to his pack, and helping Bianca puts the people he loves in danger. His people would never kidnap a child, but he suspects a very dangerous pack leader has the teenager, and the man would kill the desperate human without a second thought. Bianca Archer isn’t part of his world, and that makes her a very dangerous woman to want. When she witnesses Law’s shift, he has to make a choice—bite her or trust her.
Yesterday I spoke with some local author friends and learned a thing or two about how to create a Pintrest world around my characters. So look for me at @ashlynnmonroe. In the coming weeks you’ll be able to learn so much more about the world of Moonlight’s Lure on the Moonlight’s Lure board. I’ll be sharing excepts on my website too.

Evernight Celebrates 5 Years of Publishing!
Thanks to readers like you, Evernight Publishing has grown by leaps and bounds in five years so they’re pulling out all the stops and throwing an extreme BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION BLOG HOP in your honor!
That’s right! It’s Evernight’s birthday but YOU get the presents…
Apple Watch Sport
NEW Kindle Paperwhite
Evernight, Amazon, and ARe Gift Certificates
Plus, each author on the hop will offer his/her own special prize!
I’m honored to celebrate this momentous occasion with Evernight. I have been one of the Evernight authors since 2010. Here’s a look at my first Evernight title and my latest release:
Protector Mine is one of my first titles with Evernight. I picked this instead of my first, Fallen Angels, because they have the same theme.
Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/Protector-Mine-Ashlynn-Monroe-ebook/dp/B004BDP61A/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1443744218&sr=8-1&keywords=protector+mine+ashlynn+monroe

Larissa is on the verge of complete insanity. She has grown up feeling a connection to the rural woodlands near her home. She has never been able to find what or who has been calling to her.
Dante comes from an ancient line of shifters whose sole purpose is to keep their charges safe from vampires. Dante is Larissa’s Protector. There are only two rules- never talk to your charge and never let them know that you are watching. Dante breaks every rule when it comes to Larissa when they are swept into a torrent of desire that threatens to consume them.
Will the price of breaking the rules to follow their hearts be too great? Hunters lurk in the forest. Vampires are coming. Dante is all that stands between Larissa and the monsters who want to make her one of them.
My latest story with Evernight is Always Midnight in the M/F Bad Alpha anthology.
Amazon Link: http://www.amazon.com/Bad-Alpha-J-R-Gray-ebook/dp/B013XTFJK0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1443744668&sr=8-1&keywords=bad+alpha+ashlynn+monroe

Taryne Michael is all her younger brother Travys has ever had for stability. When fifteen-year-old Trav doesn’t come home after he fights with her she spends the next week searching for him. He finally comes home he’s not the same boy who slammed the door the night he left. Something is very wrong and when she discovers he’s been transformed into a werewolf she’s at a loss as to what to do. The violent, angry boy isn’t the little brother she knows how to deal with. Teenage hormones are nothing compared to the animalistic young man emerging from the boy she’d raised.
Ax Greyson is a lone wolf, an alpha without a pack. He enforces laws non-shifters don’t know about. Celo Valley, is a place where two species co-reside. The werewolves keep the humans blind to their existence by being careful. Someone isn’t following the rules. Someone is killing, with no regard for secrets. When killing the woman seems like the only way to keep his people’s secret until Ax’s instincts find another way.
It’s a great time for an Evernight shopping spree because all Evernight titles are 25% off through October 9th at AllRomance eBooks!

A few years ago, we had a very memorable Halloween. One of my neighbors always makes his house the most festive on the block. He dresses up and hands out candy. The man is a nice as can be, but it’s clear he loves the morbid décor of Halloween. One year the kids wanted to decorate as much as he does and I told them they had to make their own decorations because I wasn’t investing in a million dollars worth of tombstones and skulls. They used cheesecloth and glue to make ghosts and hung them in the trees. Then they used some old Styrofoam to make tombstones and sprayed them black. The effect was great and our Halloween loving neighbor even came over to compliment the display.
Beachwalk Press will be sponsoring a grand prize giveaway which is: two $25 gift certificates to the winner's choices of Amazon, B&N, or All Romance Ebooks.
