Indie Author Spotlight: Leeloo Deschain

    Launching the "You Don't Make It On Your Own" campaign with indie authors like myself is a real privilege, considering how much untapped talent is really out there.  So, to put a spotlight on any self-published author, I believe, is an honor.  In this case, my first choice happens to be a 43 year old single mom of 6 (if that isn't deserving of a spotlight in and of itself) who writes unique dark fantasy and erotica.  While I am not an advocate of Fifty Shades of Grey (at all), I have to promote this author for her originality.  While erotica is a rapidly growing genre, expanding more every year, Leeloo Deschain adds dark fantasy into her steamy content, creating extraordinary reads.  Combine Fifty Shades of Grey and Twilight on steroids.  Her books are attracting attention, especially in California where these stories take place.
      You can find out more about her exciting work here:

The Vampire's Virgin
Book 1
The Desert Bloodlust Series
The Vampire's Oasis
Book 2
The Desert Bloodlust Series
The Vampire's Hall
Book 3
The Desert Bloodlust Series
Ectoplasm: A Paranormal Erotic Quickie

      While her erotica work gains traction, Leeloo Deschain is currently working on a dystopian sci-fi novel which is set for release soon.  Like Steinbeck, Deschain writes most of her intoxicating stories set in her native California.  Aside from her talents in writing, she also creates erotic and empowering poetry.  It would do you well to follow her on social media platforms to stay in her artistic circle.  Get a taste of some via her Instagram, Facebook & Pintrest pages below...

Author Bio:
      Favorite things: Coffee, wine, driving with the windows down and blaring some Volbeat or Tool while singing the wrong lyrics and comedies. 
      Her passion: Writing novels, short stories & poetry for both the erotic and the dark.
      Things She's Learned-
"The biggest, and most rewarding, thing I've learned since self-publishing, has been that indie authors are the most supportive, generous, and helpful group of people I've encountered in a very long time. When I first started this journey, I was stunned at the amount of help people were so willing to share. I am part of a private group on Facebook just for indie authors, and the way everyone was so willing to jump in and help... well... I felt so blessed. What a wonderful community to be a part of. I'm so thankful!
      "Other Things I've Learned-
I'm one strong bad ass woman. I knew that early on in life, but then I had forgotten it along the way. Being single again and making my own decisions for the first time in years, raising my kids without any sort of help whatsoever from their father, it has shown me that I'm pretty tough. Once I get knocked down, I bounce back up ready to go another round.  But say or do something that touches my heart and I'll cry for days!"
