The Spotlight is on Amali Rose today!
Amali has released Under the Cherry Blossoms and her newest book Dandelion Dreams releases next week!
I’m really happy to be able to share a bit about Amali and her writing with you today!
What would you like your readers to know about you?
That I am very new to writing, so I’m still learning as I go, but I’m loving this ride
that writing has taken me on. And I love to hear from them!
Is there a genre you feel drawn to write or do you see yourself tackling a variety
of genres in the future?
At this stage I don’t have any plans to write in any genre other than romance, but
who knows what the future holds.
Can you describe your writing space?
I don’t have a designated writing space, I write all over the house!
Can you tell us a bit about your writing process?
I start with a general idea, and then make notes of key plot points that I want to
occur. Then I move onto a short chapter by chapter outline, and then I just sit
down and write! I’m quite a methodical writer, I write in sequence and can only
have one WIP on the go at a time.
What is your go to snack when writing?
Are any of your books or characters based on personal experiences or people in
I think there’s elements of experiences I’ve had and people I know. But nothing is
Do you have a favorite character or book you have written?
I think my debut will always be close to my heart, and I absolutely adore my H in
Under The Cherry Blossoms. I think he’s different to most book boyfriends out
there and I love that.
But I’m really proud of the book I’m working on at the moment, Dandelion
Dreams, and the h, Cassidy, has really stolen my heart. I love her a lot.
Any hints as to what readers can expect next?
Dandelion Dreams is my next release, and I’m excited for people to read this
story. It’s a contemporary romance with elements of rom com and some dirty bits

Under The Cherry Blossoms
Skye Emery believes in true love.
A romantic idealist, she believes wholeheartedly that everyone will get their happy ending. Everyone except her, that is.
After drowning in the devastation left behind by a cheating father, keeping men at arm’s length and finding solace in a dirty book and a pint of ice cream is a safer option. However, in the aftermath of a night that ends with a cheap wine buzz and the afterglow of a solo orgasm, Skye decides to dip her toes into the world of online dating.
Enter Ben Mackinnon, the sexy reformed manwhore with a complicated past of his own and a killer online presence Skye just can’t ignore.
Ben overwhelms her with his perfect mix of sweet sincerity and dirty talking dominance. He pursues Skye with a determination she didn’t know she craved and when they stumble upon a childhood memory that connects them, Skye’s walls begin to tumble down.
Skye wants to believe that all men aren’t carbon copies her father, but when Ben’s past resurfaces she’s torn between running to protect her heart, or fighting for the only relationship she has ever invested in.
