Release date: March 30, 2017

Naomi by Mya O’Malley
Naomi has a knack for attracting attention from ethereal beings—whether she wants it or not. Newly engaged to her sexy neighbor, Bryce, she has little time to celebrate and plan for her upcoming wedding, because no sooner does she wrap up a heartbreaking cold case than she finds herself right back where she started, searching for answers alongside ghostly spirits.

This time, however, Naomi learns that things are not what they seem as a man from her past quickly becomes her worst nightmare. If she’s not careful, this man might crush her hopes and dreams forever as he proves to be her most difficult opponent yet. 
Still, Naomi tries to focus on her relationship with Bryce. Can it withstand head games and cruel intentions? Naomi makes it her mission to keep Bryce and his daughter safe from harm, but will true love be tough enough to withstand her adversaries? 
Naomi must keep her eyes wide open and question everything— and everyone—in order to survive.

Mya O'Malley was born and raised in the suburbs of New York City, where she currently lives with her husband, daughter, and three stepdaughters. The family also consists of their boxer, Destiny, and their ragdoll cat, Colby.

Mya earned an undergraduate degree in special education and a graduate degree in reading and literacy. She works as a special education teacher and enjoys making a difference in the lives of her students. 

Mya's passion is writing; she has been writing stories and poetry since she was a child. A romantic at heart, she loves to craft stories with unforgettable characters. In her free time, Mya reads just about anything she can get her hands on. She also likes to travel, and has visited several Caribbean islands, Mexico, and Costa Rica.

  1. Glad I'm not that addicted to coffee...

  2. I only have one coffee a day the rest I drink is bottled water.
    I thank you for all the hard work you have done for the A to Z Challenge in the past and for the future.
    Will look forward to ISWG on Wednesday.


  3. At least we're getting some A to Z buzz going now! I've already put up my #IWSG post today--a bit early, but I didn't want a combined post going on forever on Wednesday.

    Tossing It Out

  4. Lol love the coffee memes. I don't think I could survive a day without coffee.

  5. The coffee memes are funny. Sadly, I can't drink it. It causes pain so I have to avoid it.

  6. I don't drink coffee (and I dare call myself a writer, I know...), but I love the coffee memes. (Especially the one with the middle fingers. Because I'm twelve.)

    Congrats on your new cover, Mya! It's lovely!

  7. Some days I wished I loved coffee. It would keep my eyes open when they need to be! Gorgeous new cover for Mya.

  8. Ha. I love those coffee memes. :) I'm curious what the A to Z Challenge has in store.

  9. I think that writing can definitely change the reading experience. For one thing, since I like to write funny stuff, I always pay attention to how humor writers describe things, like how a lot of them will repeat the same joke a certain number of times for comedic effect.

  10. I sit here at 6 in the morning, yes, I'm drinking coffee and can count the hours I slept on one hand...

  11. I haven't participated in the April Challenge for a few years. This year I want to participate on my blog, The Chronicles of Loving a Heroin Addict (

    This blog will soon be 1 year old. I get a lot of hits that read it, but it so far has no followers. I hope the use the April Challenge to gain a few followers and also it will be good for me as a challenge to myself otherwise I will stay in the stigma of loneliness of this disease. And yes, Coffee!!! And lots of it please! :)
