Celebrating Sarah J. Pepper's Spicy Fantasy Thriller

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating a spicy paranormal fantasy thriller from author Sarah J. Pepper!

UNSPOKEN LIES by Sarah J Pepper

"Not everyone falls for the psychopath with killer good looks, but Roxy hasn't ever been very lucky by Sarah J Pepper"

With the Unseelie prince’s dangerously addictive kiss lingering on her lips, Roxy is appointed by the Seelie Court to investigate their king’s murder. As more faeries turn up missing or dead, Roxy must find the killer before accusations push the two courts into war.

One problem: the killer orchestrates a twisted game of hide-and-seek, as if amused by the web of lies they create. The catch: all the clues lead to an Unseelie prince being the killer mastermind – the very faerie whose touch Roxy craves.

"Warning: Addictive passion erupts from her mouthwatering descriptions."


Sarah J. Pepper lives in South Dakota with her real-life prince charming. At a young age, she fell for paranormal books and now incorporates that genre with romance that thrives in the hearts of us all. When she’s not storytelling, she’s most likely biking, hoarding chocolate, or taking a bubble bath. Get a glimpse inside her head at

  1. Good morning Sarah and super congrats on your latest release - your first, right? How exciting!

    I love being able to celebrate an author's first release with them! And since you are new to us here at AuthorIsland, can you tell us all about yourself, what you're working on and of course about your first book UNSPOKEN LIES?

    Your book sounds fantastic - and it sounds like a fun world, will be see it again in another book, or is this it for Roxy and her prince?

    Hope you have a wonderful time today at your cyber launch party and I hope your book is a big success for you! Looking forward to many more from you as well!

    1. Working on two other series actually. The Ringer's Masquerade and Fate Trilogy. The first two books of the RM Series are finished. Devil's Lullaby will be coming out June 15th. Death's Melody, the second book in the RM Series will be out later. I am hoping to start on the third book by the end of the week.

      "Forgoteen" is the first book in the Fate Trilogy. The book is finished and i'm actually looking for gals to pose as models for the cover as well as a handsome young man. In addition to that, i'll be looking for a band to represent me in another youtube trailer. :)

      As far as Roxy's and her prince..... just have to read the book to see "which prince charming" she chooses - or chooses her. :)

    2. "Forgotten" - book one in the Fate Trilogy


  2. You have fantastic excerpt and trailer! Congratulations on your first release, it sounds great!

    Do you have a scene in your mind that you haven't been able to fit into one of your up coming stories?


    1. Oooooo, so many scenes haven't been written yet. Clearly, i want to build Roxy's and Alexander's relationship.... but love and lies tend to exploit couples... make them or break them so to speak. I actually deleted several scenes in Unspoken Lies. The book originally was 174,000 words long.... ended up cutting the book in half - so a lot of background info needed to be cut and other sidebar details/characters were edited out. I could almost write another book juse using the "scraps" from this one! :)

  3. Congratulations on the book! The book sounds good.

    Are there other members of the Court you will be writing about?


    1. I have plans to continue this book into a series. I LOVE writing romance and sorta have this thing for Alexander now... even though Ashton holds a special place in my heart. I'm going back and forth between what to write next.... a "prequel" which would explain more of the drama about Ashton and the secrets when they began ... or a "sequel" revealing more insight to Roxy's promises made to the goblins, Alexander, and the boggart...

      If you have any suggestions, let me know !:)

  4. Congratulations on your new book. Sounds like a very good book.

    1. Thank you! I have another teen romance book coming out June 15th called Devil's Lullaby...Here's a blurb. I'll be posting the first 3 chapters for free soon. :)

      Sebastian’s haunting gaze penetrated my very being, revealing my secrets, fears, and desires. My name rolled off his tongue, tempting me to take exactly what I hungered for. His world was laced with inconvenient truths; mine was saturated with sweet, beautiful lies. Sebastian promised me nothing of a happy ending. The demonic spawn with an angelic voice could derail my only purpose for living, but still I didn't want to look away. My curiosity would certainly be my undoing—but then again, death was inevitable.
      Life perceived by the soulless ones…
      Created by the unorthodox hospital known as the Ringer, Catherine’s fated to die on her next birthday. As a soulless spawn, her only purpose for existence is to be the perfect organ donor for her terminal progenitor. Although Catherine has never met her progenitor, an unexplainable bond ties their lives together forever.
      Catherine waits patiently for death, until Sebastian gives her a taste of something more, something worth fighting for. The uncontrollable, consuming passion they share begins to grow dangerous as he reveals the Ringer’s most guarded secrets—secrets they’d kill to keep.

  5. You're a new author for me. I'm very excited to be learning about you. I love fantasy and romantic suspense, so this sounds like a great mix. How in the world did you come up with the idea for this book?

    Is fantasy your favorite genre to write? I'm heading over to your website now to see what you've got coming up. Best of luck with your new career as a writer.

    1. I'm a new author to me too. It took me just over two years to get "Unspoken Lies" out into the hands of my readers. Since then, I've finished three other books. "Devil's Lullaby" which will be coming out June 15th took me 19 days to finish. Of course, I had several stages of edits and polishing on my own and with my editorial team, but it was crazy. My characters basically wrote that book for me. It's the first one in the Ringer's Masquerade Series. That book is a teen paranormal romance. I'm very excited to get it out there:) Death's Melody will be coming out later, I'm just finishing the edits now. I hope to start book three of that series by the end of the week.

      I also have another series coming out this year "Fate Trilogy" first book called "Forgotten" It's in that same sci-fi/ fantasy/ furturistic genre. I always have a romantic element to write in my stories.

      I actually started writing Unspoken Lies while waiting for a few of my favorite authors to come out with their next book. I new it was going to be in the fairie area. I did a lot of research regarding the old folklore. I started by writing how I would feel if my father was murdered/died.... i think it was 7 pages long. I only ended up using 2 or 3 paraghraphs of the entire dealo but it was a great exercise. The story became me.... hope you enjoy.

  6. Ooh, thanks for the intro, Sarah--this sounds like an exciting read! Hope you're having a great time celebrating, and I hope you'll have plans for future stories already! What are you working on now?
