My name is Sandra Madera, and I am a recent college grad, obtaining my bachelor's degree in science. However, my true passion has always been writing. Growing up watching soap operas and playing with doll houses, I dreamed up hundreds of stories in my head everyday. I began writing in the second grade when I was honored with a prize after writing a fun short story about animals playing baseball.
I have penned several short stories, including the beloved "Weeping Willow" and "Shattered". I have also authored full-length novels, having written both the Restraint Trilogy and the Weeping Willow Series.

In loving memory of my best friend, my dearest companion, my baby boy, Brownie. You will forever be missed... Sleep with the angels, baby. I love you.

The day has come... Wicked Love has now been released. I published it on Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, and Amazon. While it is up and ready to order on the last two sites, Barnes and Noble takes a few hours to a day for Nook Press to upload a book. Please keep your eyes open for it on the Nook bookstore.
Josie from Josie's Haven Book Blog has read Wicked Love and will post a review soon on Goodreads and her blog. Although I will post a quote from her review, you will have to go to her blog for the full review.
I have added my email list to my blog and now my website for those who want to stay abreast of release dates, freebies, promotions, etc. These emails will be sent no more than once a month and contain information about what is going on now. For those who signed up in previous months, they received a free copy of Wicked Love. So, consider signing up, because you never know what I can give away for free.
Thank all of you once again for your patience and feedback! Please be sure to spread the news of the release to all your friends and do not worry because this is not the end. Wicked Voices is next. A blurb about the next book in the series will be uploaded soon. Nalin and Willow's journey continues....
With Wicked Love's release on the 1st of February, there are some things you should know.
A number of themes are prominent in this novel and jump out at you in various times during the journey; love, time, salvation, sin, redemption, loss, sacrifice, etc. Ultimately, it is redemption through repentance which is key in this story, not time as the blurb would suggest. There is a call to change that Nalin has been awakened to. He doesn't remember key moments in his life that made him seek to change, but he is driven by a series of events to recall those instances where he reflected on his own salvation. There is a touch of acknowledgement that true love is a sacrifice of self and he is willing to sacrifice his life for the one he loves. I hope that translates when you read this novel.
With the Weeping Willow Series, there will always be deeper questions about life raised beneath the surface of the love story. These concepts add to the story, but also spark something within ourselves about our own moral reasoning.
