Celebrating A New Release For Kortny Alexander

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating the release of SURRENDERING TO SUMMER, Book Two in Kortny Alexander's Whispering Mountain Series.

Kortny Alexander is an addict for books. She loves to read. As a matter of fact, you don't even want to be around her when she's reading a series. She forget to eat, forget to feed the kids, forget doctor's appointments...It can get ugly.

Kortny lives in Georgia with her two extremely cool sons. They are not as addicted to reading but they are not too far behind. They both are writers as well. They rubbed off on her.

In all seriousness, it started off as a simple email to one of Kortny's favorite authors. She was instantly hooked on this vampire series and emailed the author, kindly demanding to know when the next book would be coming out. The author emailed back and told Kortny she'd have to hold on until the next year. So the next email Kornty sent, she teased that she'd better start drawing her own conclusions and writing her own version to keep her busy until the next book would be released. The author wrote back that she thought that would be an interesting idea.

The next morning it was as if a flood gate was opened. Story ideas bombarded Kortny so she started writing them down and it's been a non-stop fun journey every since.

Thanks to love she receives from her two very, very patient sons, her awesome brother and her wonderful mother, Kortny's been able to write to her heart's content...and she loves it!

Kortny hopes you will pick up one of her books and join her on an erotic fun-filled adventure.


Whispering Mountain Book Two

Summer Showers was excited about moving to Whispering Mountain for a better job and triple the pay. When her living situation changes, she is persuaded to move in with the Durden men temporarily. Staying with the men only makes her undeniable attraction grow stronger. She finds it difficult to suppress the desire growing inside of her.

Dalton, Denver, and Dillon Durden knew they were in trouble the minute they invited Summer to stay with them. While all three men tried to fight their attraction to her, they found it difficult to stay away.

Someone is lurking in Whispering Mountain and they won't stop until they get what they have come for. Will the stranger rip their world apart or will the Durden men fight to protect everything they love and surrender to Summer?

    so as one an addict to books to another...who were your favorite authors to read? maybe i have missed more than i thought...or we might enjoy the same

  4. Congrats on the new release. You are a new author for me but this post made me a new fan. I can't wait to read the new book.

    When you are getting ready to write, what do you like to have near you? Do you listen to music or like it quiet?

  5. Thanks Regina Ross. Im very excited about my new release and new fans!

  6. Thanks so much for your wonderful assistance Author Island! I was surprised and excited about making Siren Bookstrands bestseller list.

    I have two boys. Just today my oldest passed and received his drivers license. Still freaks me out!

    At the moment Im working on another series. There will be wolves, faries, a skin-walker and several other beings. Of course romance with a mix of suspense and a menage or two.

    Whispering Mountain is about the Showers sisters: Summer, Spring, May, April. Another Whispering Mountain story is in the works for May Showers. April Showers will get her story soon. I'd love to hear from the readers...who's story would they like to hear from this particularly from this series?

  7. Thanks Chele Blades!

    I've always loved to read. I got hooked on Sue Grafton mysteries first. I branched out to others genres except romance. Then I discovered Amanda Quick. As I got older I discovered erotic romance novels and fell in love. I dont favor one author over another. Too many to pick from.

  8. Thanks Mary! Im glad you're a new fan. That makes me giddy with excitement.

    When I write I set my music according to scene. Most of the time my house is chaos so I just turn up the tunes, zone out and write. Never know what I will create.

  9. Congratulations on the new release. Can't wait to see what you come up with next.

  10. Congrats on your new release, Kortny, and on your new driver! Wow! Did you or your husband do the driving with while the learning was going on? (That's still a few years out for us, and I already know it's going to have to be DH!)

  11. Thanks flchen1!

    As for the new driver, his father braved the interstates and major highways while I did the backroads or the quick trip to the grocery store. My son just wanted his license. He has no intention of actually going anywhere...yet

  12. Have you received any letters from fans like the one you sent?

  13. Congrats on the book and the best sellers list!!! The books are wonderful keep writing and I will keep reading!! Keep it spicy......

  14. I too get impatient waiting for the next book in a series but, I don't have your talent for writing. So I just have to bear the anticipation.

  15. Congrats on your release celebration! I have them both. 'Give Me More' made ME want more. I wasn't satisfied until I read every page of both. I look forward to getting your next release, too!
    When you started your first book, did you just start typing what was rolling around in your head, or did you have something like a story board to follow? Thanks!

  16. Hi Leni,

    I haven't received any emails like the one I sent that particular author. I'm still waiting on her next one.

  17. Thanks so much, Nicol! I will work very hard to keep my stories spicy.

  18. Marybelle,

    I truly understand being impatient when waiting for the next book in a series to come out.

    Thank you for the compliment. I'm working on the next one in the series.

  19. Thanks Tracy!

    I'm so excited you liked both stories. I hope you enjoy the next release just as much.

    When I started the first book, I just wrote what was in my head. GIVE ME MORE wasn't the first book I wrote but the inspiration for it knocked my other projects to the sidelines. I'd just returned from a 'girls weekend' in Vegas and the ideas were rolling in.

  20. Hi, I have never read one of your books but it looks ever so hot! Which book is your favorite?
    debby236 at gmail dot com

  21. Hi Debby,

    That's a difficult question for me. I like both. Spring's story is fun because she meets her love interest in an unexpected way.

    Summer's story is complex. She has three men, three different personalities. I don't know how I'd handle that. It's fun reading about Summer trying to tame them.

  22. Hey Girl,

    I just wanna say congrats...and, damn, that video is smokin' (he he)...may you sell many, many books. And gosh darn it...whose turn was it to post the weekly challenge?

  23. Thanks Cherie Noel! I'm extremely happy that you like the video. They are fun to put together. As for the weekly challenge...I have no idea :)

  24. Another new to me author. I love finding new authors. I love the name Whispering Mountains. How did you come up with it? Thanks for the giveaway.

  25. Congratulations on the new release, Kortny - I loved it! Sorry it took me so long to post but I'm in Cincinnati at Lori Foster's get together. Good luck with this book, I can't wait for the next one.

    Missy Martine

  26. Congratulations on your new release. Sounds like a awesome read.

  27. Hi Jen B,

    I came up with 'Whispering Mountains' by sheer luck. I knew I wanted the word 'mountain' in it and I just started playing around with diffent words until I finally found one I liked.

  28. Thanks Missy!

    I'm glad you stopped by to say hello. I'm totally jealous. I wanted to go to that get together too. Have a great time for both of us!

  32. I think that everything composed was very reasonable. But,
    think about this, suppose you added a little information?
    I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added something that makes people desire more? I mean "Celebrating A New Release For Kortny Alexander" is kinda vanilla. You might glance at Yahoo's front page and note how they
    create post titles to grab viewers to click. You might add a related
    video or a related picture or two to get readers interested about what you've written. Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.
