Author Spotlight - Sherry Soule

Today author, Sherry Soule has some exciting news to share with us! She has published a brand new upper YA book, LOST IN STARLIGHT (paranormal romance with a Sci-Fi concept) with scorching-hot character chemistry and exciting suspense. 

To help promote this interstellar love story, Sherry is doing this fun guest post to share the news with fellow booklovers. 

All about Sherry!

Sherry Soule lives with her family and one very spoiled black cat in the San Francisco Bay Area. She is the popular author of the acclaimed YA series, Spellbound and the bestselling paranormal romance novel, Immortal Eclipse

Sherry writes thrilling tales of romance and suspense, often mingled with a dash of the mystical and a splash of trendy fashion. Her published novels do not include any graphic sex, explicit violence, or excessive profanity, so that all of her novels can be read and enjoyed by both teens and adults. 

Aside from writing, she enjoys reading poetry, online shopping, digging through flea markets, and exploring old cemeteries and Victorian mansions. She is a major shopaholic and bookaholic, with an epic flair for fashion. Her love of literature began when she was a young girl and it has continued throughout her life.

Sherry’s life changed dramatically when she lost her job in 2009 and was out of work for almost two years. To keep from falling into a hopeless depression, she turned back to her first love—writing fiction. Getting her stories published has been a long journey for Sherry, who decided to go the Indie publishing route after several traditional publishers turned down one of her first manuscripts. Editors and agents loved the storyline, but didn't think it fit the needs of the current market.

Discouraged, but convinced that there was a readership for her work, Sherry published her first novel with a small press and began intensely marketing it on the Internet. Her debut YA novel, BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN was published by Moonlight Publishing. To her delight and surprise, the novel was praised and loved by book reviewers and readers everywhere.

High school is tough. Romance with a sexy alien—even tougher.

Star reporter Sloane Masterson knows she has one helluva story when she witnesses hottie Hayden Lancaster bending forks with his mind.

Like any good journalist, Sloane sets out to uncover the truth, even if it includes a little stalking. When the superhuman feats start to pile up and the undeniable heat rises between them, Hayden has no choice but to reveal his secret: he’s an alien hybrid.

They’re as different as night and day—she’s a curvy, purple-haired, horror junkie and he’s a smoking hot, antisocial, brainiac—yet the intense fascination between them refuses to go away. Even at Hayden’s insistence that dating each other is “off limits” and dangerous, their fiery attraction threatens to go supernova. 

Now Sloane’s dealing with creepy government agents, ├╝ber snobby extraterrestrials, and a psycho alien ex-girlfriend out for revenge. After a crash course on the rules of interstellar dating, Sloane must decide if their star-crossed romance is worth risking her own life....



  1. I'm a favorite number kind of girl and I can't believe her favorite number is 13! I believe in ghosts too. Not demonic activity, though I do not spend a second considering in case I actually do believe in it. Great post! "thrilling tales of romance and suspense, often mingled with a dash of the mystical and a splash of trendy fashion" sounds awesome. I added Lost in Starlight to my TBR shelf.

    I hope you're having a great week, Jaclyn.

  2. Love learning fun facts about authors. This book was not for me unfortunately.

  3. Love the purple hair on the cover, wish I could pull off

  4. Thanks for sharing Sherry's Fun Facts, Jaclyn. I read Lost in Starlight and really enjoyed it. And seeing those facts about Sherry...there's some of her in Sloane. :) I hope you'll read this one. I'd like your take on it. Have a great day!!

  5. looks like a fun read! And I love other NorCal writers!! :)

  6. It definitely does :D Thanks so much for stopping by!

  7. I didn't have time to take it on as a read yet, but hopefully some day I can. I'm glad to hear that you liked this one. I love seeing a bit of the authors in their characters :D

  8. I do too. Awe, sorry to hear that. I haven't read it yet, but it looks interesting. I'll have to look up your review for this one because I'm not remembering it right now.

  9. My number is 11 and Zane's dad's is 13. I went in to be induced on 11/11 so I was thrilled to have Zane on that day. To bad, they sent me back home. I ended up having him on 11/13 - both of our lucky numbers together. Zane's number is 10 though LOL I waver back and forth on ghosts. I think it's because I believe the possibility exists, like with aliens so I guess it could happen.

  10. Since the author is kind of a friend, I gave her the option of posting the review or not and she preferred I didn't. So no review. But I will review it on goodreads soon.

  11. Thanks for letting me chat about myself and my new series, the “Starlight Saga.” This book is meant for all those hopeless romantics out there. ;-)

    And I sincerely hope that everyone enjoys reading, LOST IN STARLIGHT this summer.
