TEASER EXCERPT:
I handed Jordan the electric guitar that I’ve had since I was twelve, and laughed when her eyes got really big. “You play the electric guitar, too?”


“Music major,” I teased, picking up my keyboard. “I play this, too. A little. And the bass guitar.”


“Awesome.” She examined the electric guitar with awe.


“Why do you seem so surprised?”


She looked at me as if the answer to that question should be obvious. “Hello. Have you met yourself? You with an acoustic guitar singing soft songs around a campfire or in a coffee house makes perfect sense. But I can’t picture you up on a stage, jamming on your electric guitar like a rock star.” She studied me a moment, then shook her head. “You’ll have to play for me, or I’m not going to believe it.”

Not Always Happenstance
by Rachel Anderson

Pearl is back this month with another romantic adventure and this time she's taking us to contemporary Maui! This books was so fun! Set in exotic Maui, this one had a great strong heroine that I easily identified with and a leading man I couldn't help loving. If you like witty dialog between two people falling for each other, then you may want to give this one a chance! 
What I'm Reading:

This month I've been so busy that I haven't had the chance to read much more than Not Always Happenstance, so I'm posting about one that I read a while back but absolutely LOVED. It you're a fan of YA paranormal, then check out Dragon Marked by Jaymine Eve! Jamie is brilliant! (And I mean that with all my book-loving heart. Anything of hers' is wonderful, but I love the Supernatural Prison books!! Action packed, intense and swoon worthy! And the first one's FREE!!

Join the If We Were A Movie launch team and win big!


Raise your hand if you'd like to be a part of the If We Were A Movie launch team and read the book an entire month early? I'm doing things differently than I have in the past. I'm not scheduling a blog tour or sending out ARCS the way I usually do, and I will not be doing a release day party. Instead I'm looking for a group of enthusiastic loyal readers to help me with verified purchased reviews.

What you have to do to participate:
1. Pre-order the book from Amazon. (I will need the purchase ID # for verification.) Also, I apologize if you normally purchase from another retailer, but the launch party requires Amazon since that is how I will be sending arcs, and I am looking for verified purchase reviews...
2. Agree to post an honest review on Amazon on release day.(I will check these and if your review is not a verified purchased review, you will not be eligible for the giveaway.)
3. Must agree not to post any spoilers before release day. (however you are encouraged to post non spoiler posts on social media/blogs/goodreads)
3. Must use the amazon kindle app to read the ARC as I will only be sending the books directly to your amazon email account. (I will provide instructions for that once you've joined the group, and you do not need to have a kindle device, just the kindle app on whatever device you use to read ebooks--which is free to download.)

What you get in return for your help:
1. You get to read the book a month early!
2. You get entered into an exclusive giveaway of the entire KO collection in paperback. (That's one lucky reader = 13 books!!!)
3. All participants will receive a signed A is for Abstinence post card from me. (If they would like one.)
4. You get a %40 discount on the book because it's on preorder sale right now and the price will go up on release day.

*There will be a few fun games in the group throughout the month and a graphics for FB profile takeovers and other various stuff too, but none of that will be required.
If you would like to join the launch team, email me at kellyoramwrites@gmail.com with your purchase ID number for your preordered copy of If We Were A Movie. I will send you an email invite to join the Facebook Launch group where you'll receive further instructions.

How do you find your purchase ID number?

1. Preorder the book on Amazon HERE.
You'll see this screen after purchased:
Click on the "view a summary of your order" It will give you the purchase ID #
It's that D01- number at the top there. Copy and paste that number or send me a screen shot to get your email invite!

If you've already preordered the book, sign into amazon.com hover over your name until the drop down menu appears and click the option that says "Your Orders"

You will see a list of all your purchases on Amazon. Scroll through until you see If We Were A Movie. The ID number is in the top right corner.

Again, just copy and paste that number or send me a screen shot to kellyoramwrites@gmail.com to get your email invite to the Facebook group for the launch team!


Thanks a bunch guys! I'm excited for this launch. It's going to be great!

The Science Squad Series

The Science Squad Series
These can each be read as stand alone novels, but would probably be more fun in order. It's a series about the Science Club at Spanish Fork High and their crazy adventures in love. There may be a couple more books added to the series over time, but I have nothing solid yet. These won't leave you on a cliffhanger though. 
Literary Achievements: The Avery Shaw Experiment is currently an Eliot Rosewater Book Award finalist and is on the Indiana State High School Eliot Rosewater reading list for the 2015-16 school year. It is also published in Hungarian, and Libby will soon follow.



THE AVERY SHAW EXPERIMENT (Science Squad #1)
When Avery Shaw’s heart is shattered by her life-long best friend, she chooses to deal with it the only way she knows how—scientifically.

The state science fair is coming up and Avery decides to use her broken heart as the topic of her experiment. She’s going to find the cure. By forcing herself to experience the seven stages of grief through a series of social tests, she believes she will be able to get over Aiden Kennedy and make herself ready to love again. But she can’t do this experiment alone, and her partner (ex partner!) is the one who broke her heart.

Avery finds the solution to her troubles in the form of Aiden’s older brother Grayson. The gorgeous womanizer is about to be kicked off the school basketball team for failing physics. He’s in need of a good tutor and some serious extra credit. But when Avery recruits the lovable Grayson to be her “objective outside observer,” she gets a whole lot more than she bargained for, because Grayson has a theory of his own: Avery doesn’t need to grieve. She needs to live. And if there’s one thing Grayson Kennedy is good at, it’s living life to the fullest.
Available on Amazon * iBooks * Kobo * Nook


THE LIBBY GARRETT INTERVENTION (Science Squad #2)
Libby Garrett is addicted to Owen Jackson's hot lovin'. But the sexy, popular college basketball player doesn't appreciate all of Libby's awesomeness. He refuses to be exclusive or even admit to people that they're dating. The relationship is ruining Libby and she's the only one who can't see it. 

When Libby's behavior spirals completely out of control, her best friend Avery Shaw and the rest of the Science Squad stage an intervention hoping to cure Libby of her harmful Owen addiction. They put her through her very own Twelve Step program--Owen's Anonymous--and recruit the help of a sexy, broody, hard as nails coffee man to be her official sponsor. 
... 
Adam Koepp has watched Libby Garrett for years. How could he not notice the sassy girl with the purple skateboard and helmet plastered with cat stickers? But in all the years he's crushed on her, Libby has failed to take notice of him. Why would she when he was just a nobody high school drop out who served her apple cider several times a week? Especially when she was hooking up with a guy like Owen Jackson--a guy with a college scholarship and more abs than Kyle Hamilton. 

Adam finally gets the chance to meet Libby when his co-worker Avery Shaw recruits him to take Libby on the journey of a lifetime. With his ability to play Bad Cop and his experience with the Twelve Step program he's the perfect candidate to be Libby's sponsor. But will he be able to keep his personal feelings out of the matter and really help her the way she needs? And will Libby hate him when he forces her to take an honest look at herself?
Available on Amazon * iBooks * Kobo Nook

V is for Virgin Series


The V is for Virgin series is a story about a girl waiting until marriage to have sex and the rockstar determined to change her mind. This series is complete.
Literary Achievements: V is for Virgin was a Whitney Award finalist in 2012, and will soon be published in Thailand. Both books were Amazon bestsellers.

V is for Virgin (V is for Virgin #1) 
When Val Jensen gets dumped for her decision to stay a virgin until marriage, the nasty breakup goes viral on YouTube, making her the latest internet sensation.

After days of ridicule from her peers, Val starts a school-wide campaign to rally support for her cause. She meant to make a statement, but she never dreamed the entire nation would get caught up in the controversy. 

As if becoming nationally recognized as “Virgin Val” isn’t enough, Val’s already hectic life starts to spin wildly out of control when bad boy Kyle Hamilton, lead singer for the hit rock band Tralse, decides to take her abstinence as a personal challenge.

How can a girl stay true to herself when this year’s Sexiest Man Alive is doing everything in his power to win her over?
Available on Amazon * iBooks * Kobo * Nook


A is for Abstinence (V is for Virgin #2)
Six-time Grammy Award-winning musician Kyle Hamilton has it all—money, fame, talent, good looks, and a job he loves. His only regret in life: walking away from a certain notorious virgin because he was too prideful, stubborn, and even afraid to give her the only thing she asked of him—his abstinence.

Four years and a broken heart later, Kyle realizes that sex isn’t everything, and he suddenly can’t stop thinking about the girl that got away. Virgin Val Jensen got under his skin like no one else ever has. He wasn’t ready for her then, but things are different now. He’s grown up, he’s learned a few things, and he’s finally figured out exactly what he wants, or, rather, who he wants.

Kyle Hamilton wants a do-over, and this time he’s willing to do—or not do—whatever it takes.

Merry Christmas from Kelly Oram!

Merry Christmas everyone!! 

Or seasons greetings and happy whichever holiday you celebrate this time of year! For me, it's Christmas, and this holiday means a lot to me. It's a sacred day. So when I wish you a Merry Christmas, it's only meant with the utmost love and respect. It's easy to get caught up in the commercial aspect of the holiday. (Believe me I'm a Christmas nut with the decorations and the presents and the baking and whatnot. Oh, and the eggnog. I LOVE eggnog!) But, ultimately, this is the day I celebrate the birth of my Savior. I am thankful for Him and His atoning sacrifice. And wish you all the best Christmas in the true sense of the word. 


Christ gave his life for us, and at Christmas time, in honor of that gift, we in return give gifts to others. I don't know about you, but I tend to go overboard with the giving. I don't wan to forget my fans this holiday season, as you all bring so many blessings to my life, and to my family. Without your support I wouldn't be able to do what I love so much. So, this Christmas I'd like to give you a gift as well. I'd like to share my gifts that the Lord has blessed me with (the gift of writing and storytelling) with all of you who mean so much to me. So I'm giving away 1,000 digital copies of Being Jamie Baker on a first come first serve basis. No strings attached. No need to share links, or sign up for anything, or leave a review. Just download and enjoy a fun read Christmas day after the presents are all opened. (And after that mid-morning nap that we all take because the kids got us up too early.)

Teaser:

“Mr. Anderson,” she said slowly, imitating the bad guy from The Matrix as she held out her hand for me to shake. She wasn’t the first person to ever do that by any stretch, but she’d nailed the impersonation. If I weren’t completely bummed at the moment, I’d have given her props.
“So this is what a Pearl Approved guy looks like.” She shook her head once and cracked a smile. “She’s got good taste, I’ll give her that. You’re an odd mix of sexy and adorable. Don’t see that often.”
I was a little taken aback by the compliment. If that’s even what it was. She may have just been stating what she considered to be fact. She laughed at my surprise and held out her hand to me. “Nice to meet you. I’m Jordan Kramer.”
I’d been afraid of that. “You’re a girl.”
Jordan laughed. “That’s what it says on my birth certificate, but I’m really glad you were able to figure it out without needing to read it.”
Nope. I definitely didn’t need that.
