Somebody's Angel Blog Tour

When Marc d’Alessio first rescued the curvaceous and spirited Italian Angelina Giardano at the Masters at Arms Club, he never expected her to turn his safe controlled life upside down and pull at his long-broken heartstrings. Months later the intense fire of their attraction still rages but something holds him back from committing to her completely. Worse, secrets and memories from his past join forces to further complicate his relationships with family, friends, and his beautiful Angel.
Angelina cannot give all of herself to someone who hides himself from her. She loves Marc, the BDSM world he brought her into, and the way their bodies respond to one another but she needs more. Though she destroyed the wolf mask he once wore, only he can remove the mask he dons daily to hide his emotions. In a desperate attempt to break through his defenses and reclaim her connection to the man she loves, she attempts a full frontal assault that sends him into a fast retreat, leaving her nobody’s angel once again.
Marc finds that running to the mountains no longer gives him solace but instead leaves him empty and alone. Angelina is the one woman worth the risk of opening his heart. Will he risk everything to become the man she deserves and the man he wants to be?

 Day 5: Erzabet’s Enchantments

 A Typical Day in the Life of Kallypso Masters

First, there really isn’t a typical day—and most are oh, so boring (except for what’s going on in my head, of course, as characters show me scenes from their stories). I write full-time (thank you, readers, for buying my books so this is possible!). With rare exceptions, I work seven days a week, even while on “vacation.” I can’t turn the voices in my head off ever. And I can spend anywhere from 12-17 hours a day when on deadline writing (as I’ve done the last couple of months), but that includes writing, marketing, and hanging out with my readers both online and in person.

I’m an extrovert, so I need my daily “fix” of engaging with readers, which I usually get on Facebook. So whenever I wake up (I don’t use an alarm clock), I grab a Diet Coke with Lime (I don’t drink coffee, so I get cold caffeine) and then I head up to the half of my son’s old bedroom my hubby managed to clear for me to write in. (When my deadline is done, I plan to renovate the whole room, but this works for now!) This is where my writing desk and writing chair are located. Don’t even ask for a photo—ain’t happening! It’s a mess!

Often I go on Facebook the first hour to ninety minutes and make my rounds to timeline, author page (well, I get there only a couple days a week), discussion group (if not on a deadline), Street Brats group (where my street team members share what they’re up to), and my writers group.  I like to check on my rankings at Amazon to see how the books are doing. Then I open my Word file and off I go to the land of the Masters at Arms Club family.

I don’t plot or plan (the Masters would just laugh at me and do what they want if I tried), so I let them decide what I’ll work on that day. I don’t write in chronological order and I just write the scene in a stream of consciousness. Internal and external dialogue comes first, then narrative and description (very basic descriptions, as I mentioned on Day 3 of this tour at Under the Covers).

I stop to eat a few hours later and then go back to work (with another Diet Coke with Lime). I break again when hubby tells me supper’s ready. (He takes very good care of me!) And I go back to work writing for the evening. I could work until 2 or 3 a.m. on a deadline, but usually a little after midnight, I head to bed.

Of course, that writing-intensive schedule of 12-17 hours a day doesn’t happen all year long. Mainly when I’m pushing to get a book finished. So I do stop to take time to “refill the well” and hang out with family—hubby, daughter, and my son’s family, including my adorable grandson, Erik. (Readers enjoy following along in my Gramma Kally adventures, too, via Facebook. He was born a week after Nobody’s Perfect was published, and definitely slowed down the number of 12-17 hour days I put in, which is partly why it took me 15 months to get the next book out!)

For what my non-typical days are like, go to the Two Lips Reviews blog today!

Free and Almost Free Books Available in the Rescue Me Series

For those new to this series who want a free glimpse into the Rescue Me world, you can get started with the FREE introduction, Masters at Arms. This book introduces six characters who will go on to have happily ever after Romances shared about them. (Adam & Karla, Damián & Savannah, Marc, and in a small part here but with more to come later, Grant.)

But because I won’t want you to stop there, I’ve combined the first two books into one volume to make it easier. You get the first TWO books in the series—Masters at Arms & Nobody’s Angel—for only 99 cents! (Saves $3 off the previously published single, Nobody’s Angel. Nobody’s Angel introduces you to Angelina and shows her exploration into the world of BDSM. But Marc remained so closed off still in this book, I needed to give him time. He’ll reveal himself in the new release Somebody’s Angel, due out by Christmas.
You’ll find buy links to all of my books currently for sale at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, All Romance eBooks, Kobo, Apple, Smashwords, and CreateSpace (print versions), at my Ahh, Kallypso…the stories you tell blog page. (
Here are links to the new combo:
(Coming soon to Apple and Libiro)

Kally Loves Having Readers Join Her on this Journey

As those who follow me on Facebook know, I involve readers in the process of writing and story telling, as well. I’ll pose questions to them or post updates as to my progress, thought processes, oh and, yes, the occasional tease. I have a timeline profile (you must send a message along with a friend request to claim one of the remaining 275 spots before Facebook cuts me off!), an author page (  you can follow, and even a series discussion group with 2700+ members there solely there to discuss this series. (To join the discussion group, send a friend request to Karla Montague (   Karla will add you to the group. Don’t be upset when she de-friends you after that. She’s strictly there to provide a portal to the group, which is where all the discussion takes place.)
I love meeting readers face to face, too (perhaps too much!). So if you are near any of my appearances (see my Web site for a list), stop by and say hello! You don’t have to buy a book—I’m happy to sign swag or e-reader covers or just give hugs and have photos taken!

About the author:

Kallypso Masters writes emotional, realistic Romance novels with dominant males (for the most part) and the strong women who can bring them to their knees. She also has brought many readers to their knees—having them experience the stories right along with her characters in the Rescue Me series. Kally knows that Happily Ever After takes maintenance, so her couples don’t solve all their problems and disappear at “the end” of their Romance, but will continue to work on real problems in their relationships in later books in the series.
Kally has been writing full-time since May 2011 and Somebody’s Angel is her fifth book in the series, preceded by Masters at Arms & Nobody’s Angel (#1 and #2), Nobody’s Hero (#3); and Nobody’s Perfect (#4).
Kally lives in rural Kentucky and has been married for 30-1/2 years to the man who provided her own Happily Ever After. They have two adult children, one adorable grandson, and a rescued dog and cat.
Kally enjoys meeting readers at national romance-novel conventions, book signings, and informal gatherings (restaurants, airports, bookstores, wherever!), as well as in online groups (including Facebook’s “The Rescue Me Series Open Discussion” secret group—to join, send a friend request to Karla Montague ( on Facebook. For kinkier conversation, Kally also invites you to Fetlife’s “Rescue Me! Series Discussion Group.” She also does live online chats. She hopes to meet you in her future travels! If you meet her face to face, be sure to ask for a Kally’s friend button!
