Lillian Anderson's Too Close: The Beauty in Between (Guest Post/Giveaway)

Today I would like to welcome new adult author, Lillian Anderson! I just picked up her book, A Beautiful Struggle, for free on Amazon and loved it! Enjoy!


We’re all here to help launch ‘Too Close’, the first Beauty in Between novellas. So, I thought I would take some time to talk about exactly, what, the Beauty in Between books are, and what's in store for them.

When I created A Beautiful Struggle, it was meant to be a stand-alone book. It was just a book about a girl and a guy who get seriously side tracked on their way to finding each other. But, after it had been released for only a couple of weeks, I started getting emails asking me for a continuation of the story.

As a result, I wrote A Beautiful Forever, thinking that that novel, would be the end of the series. I thought they would be A Beautiful Duo, and I'd end it there. But after releasing Forever, I continued to get emails and comments about both books.

Readers wanted to see more of Katrina and David, both before and after A Beautiful Struggle. They also wanted to know more about Paige and her past. On top of that, I was getting emails asking me to continue the series with Naomi as the centre of the next book.

My answers to most of these questions/comments are The Beauty in Between novellas. As the name suggests, they slot in between the Beautiful novels, to show you what happened.

Right now, I have three novellas planned. First, of course, is Too Close (Katrina and David's friendship before ABS, releasing July 30), second is Phoenix (Paige's story, releasing September 30), and third is Commitment - I'll bet you can guess what this one is about, although, I'll tell you anyway. Commitment will follow on after A Beautiful Forever, it will follow David and Katrina home from the BBQ and explore their relationship leading up to their wedding.

I don't have a release date for Commitment as yet, because I'm also working on Naomi's story, which is called A Beautiful Melody and is due to release November 30.

So, get ready to have all your questions answered and more. Looks like the Beautiful world is going to have a fairly long life. I'll write it, at least, until you're all sick of it - that's how much I love you all! MWAH!

You don’t understand how important she is to me,” I ramble. I guess I’m in shock because all I can think about is the sight of all that blood over Katrina’s beautiful face. “She’s my world.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:


Bestselling Author of the A Beautiful Series, Alter and the Confidante Trilogy, Lilliana has always loved to read and write, considering it the best form of escapism that the world has to offer. Australian born and bred, she writes New Adult Romance revolving around her authentically Aussie characters as well as a biographical trilogy based on an ex-Sydney sex worker, named Angelien. Lilliana feels that the world should see Australia for more than just it's outback and tries to show characters in more of a city setting. When she isn't writing, she wears the hat of 'wife and mother' to her husband and four children. Before Lilliana turned to writing, she worked in a variety of industries and studied humanities and communications before transferring to commerce/law at university. Originally from Sydney's Western suburbs, she currently lives a fairly quiet life in suburban Melbourne.
