The full-time job was challenging because the author was trying to pursue her writing career. She had to find opportunities to pen her stories during lunch, at night, and on the weekends.

Fortunately, her gamble paid off, and she made a name for herself in the publishing arena. Shelly’s fans love her ruthless characters. The fictional individuals in her stories are vicious.

However, they have several complex layers, especially the heroes. They are more lovable than their tough exterior may suggest at the start. The women are particularly impressive because they tend to drive the story.

Shelly makes them independent and tenacious enough that you cannot help but root for them. The author has a reputation for writing funny stories. Critics have praised her for making them laugh out loud on various occasions, especially when her stories and characters take an absurd turn.

Some of her covers are somewhat generic, but Shelly has admitted that she doesn’t control the cover art. She also explained that she doesn’t choose the release dates of the different formats of her novels.

This is why some books are available as eBooks, but the print versions don’t exist. Shelly is more than happy to engage with her fans over the internet. She encourages readers to reach out to her, even when they have criticisms regarding the stories she writes.

The author has admitted that she is unlikely to respond to the messages she gets because she is so busy. But that shouldn’t stop readers from talking to her.

Although, she doesn’t want anyone to send her writing questions or suggestions about the direction some of her stories should take. While Shelly has opened social media accounts, she is not as active on platforms like Twitter, and neither does she blog.

She has avoided the mediums because of the stress they tend to induce in users. The one writing resource Shelly repeatedly recommends is ‘On Writing’ by Stephen King.

She doesn’t want to tell anyone how they can succeed in publishing because every writer’s journey will vary depending on various circumstances. But the author believes King’s book will benefit any aspiring writer who needs help kickstarting their career.

Beyond the Stephen King recommendation, Shelly doesn’t want to coach any aspiring writers. She is just as disinterested in reading the manuscripts people send her way because her workload is significant.
People that want signed copies of her novels are out of luck because she doesn’t see the point of the practice.

Shelly has won the RT Reviewers Choice Award.

Best Shelly Laurenston Books

The author has written novels under the ‘G A Aiken’ pen name. Shelly’s best books include:

The Mane Event: Ronnie Lee Reed needed to change. She couldn’t continue using men for sex. The girl was determined to redefine herself. That meant finding a mate that could tame her.
Fortunately for Ronnie, her destiny was waiting around the corner. Brendon Shaw was everything Ronnie wanted in a man.

However, he had no interest in waiting for her to see his value. Brendon wouldn’t rest until he claimed her.

Meanwhile, Desiree and Mace had been friends since childhood. But something has changed. Mace is no longer the boy the cop remembers. And it isn’t just the muscular physique and intense stare.

Mace is different. She can feel it in the way he sniffs her neck as he purrs. Mace is more than human.

Pack Challenge: Sara thought she had everything she could possibly want, including great friends and a lovely home. But then she laid eyes on Zach, and everything changed.

The girl realized that she wanted more. For his part, Zach never saw Sara coming. His only objective in life was to become alpha. Weak and needy females did not interest him.

But Sara was something new, something special. She did not have to fight for his attention. She could get it without trying. When they finally surrendered to their urges, Sara did not realize that the consequences would stay with her forever.

And now, she must come to terms with the transformations her body has undergone and what they mean for the future.
