Book Description:


Gracen has to fight the devil in her mind and the angel on her shoulder before one of them destroys her.

For thirteen years, Gracen Sullivan dreamed about a red-eyed demon named Hart Blackwell who tortured her every night. Her mother freaked when she found out about her daughter's "hallucinations" and forced Gracen to go to the doctor, who prescribed some very powerful medication which kept Hart out of her head for five years.

A week ago, Hart came back and brought a friend.

But something has changed, and Gracen is seeing Hart when she's awake too. And the other "friends" in her dreams? They have been found dead.

The police want to talk to her.

Her boyfriend has become distant.

Her dreams are becoming more and more intense.

Hell wants her.

Heaven has to stop her.

When push comes shoving, can Gracen fight the evil eating away inside her or will she be forced to embrace it and destroy the world?

Available at Amazon

Excerpt:
Jessup Hart Blackwell ate my brain every night. He also ate my spleen, my liver, and my kidneys. Basically, anything he could get to, he ate. My tongue was his favorite. He said liars’ tongues were the best.
The leather straps with the weird symbols on them held me down—and quite frankly chaffed the heck out of me—while he cut and ripped away at every bit of skin, muscle, and cell I had.
All but one.
My heart.
He said it was because I didn't have one.
For years this happened until I finally told my mom who took me to the doctor who in turn gave me some medicine to induce a dreamless sleep and offered the alternative of placing me in a mental hospital if I didn't want to take it.
I chose medicine.
The nightmares stopped.
Until a week ago when I started my freshman year at the University of Tennessee at Crimson Ridge campus.
Last night, Hart brought a friend.

Questions:

1. Where do you get your ideas?

Most of my ideas come from 'what if' or 'I wonder what would happen'... And they usually hit me either in the shower, when I'm half asleep, or when I'm driving. The idea for Heartless popped in my head a few years ago while I was on a fishing boat with the husband and the thought "Hmm... I wonder what would happen if an angel wasn't entirely good and a demon wasn't entirely evil, but the angel and the demon hated each other and the demon tried to ruin the angel's life..." popped in my noggin--as they tend to do ;)

2. Do you have a dream cast for your book

I do :) I'd love for Taissa Farmiga from American Horror Story to play Gracen. Tyler Posey would be a great Hart. Evan Peters would just be epic as Lucien... or Hart. Let's face it, he can play either one he wants. And, of course, Jared Padalecki would be my choice for Seth. He'd so rock it.

3. How do you handle writer’s block?

Lots of chocolate lol Actually, I write something that I know will never be published. Something just for me. It takes away all of the pressure, and it usually works.

4. What inspired you to write this book?

Heartless deals with demons and angels and revenge and all sorts of other supernatural things, but at the heart of it (pun intended), it is a very personal story for me. I love Gracen so much--and Hart to some extent (just differently ;) )

5.What’s the hardest part of being an author?

The hardest part-- hmmmm... the hardest part is keeping plot twists to yourself ;) Cause I wanna tell the world, but I can't. That's really hard

About the Author:

Kelly Martin writes paranormal, contemporary, historical, and YA fiction. She has been married for over ten years and has three rowdy, angelic daughters. When she's not writing, she loves taking picture of abandoned houses, watching horror gamers on YouTube-- even though she's a huge wimp-- and drinking decaf white chocolate mochas. She's a total fangirl, loves the 80s and 90s, and has a sad addiction to paranormal TV shows. {Basically, she likes creepy stuff.} Her favorite characters are the very flawed 'good guys'--and 'bad guys' who don't know they are evil. She loves giving her readers books with unexpected twists and turns, but (here's a hint) most of her books have the ending spelled out in the first chapter. See if you can figure it out.
