A scarlet dragonfly tattoo–meant to be a beautiful, family mark of freedom–instead becomes a prophetic brand to those who wear it. Fleeing from their less-than-perfect childhoods into adulthood… twin sisters, Olivia and Gabriella, and their younger sister, Emma, instead find themselves flittering back into a cycle that relentlessly clings to their family; a cycle they can
never seem to escape in this Coming of Age story.
One mother and her daughters, bound by blood, begin their lives intertwined, but are forced to fight for their survivals separately, struggling to hide their fear and underserved shame from each other and the world. One of these women finds herself trapped. Alone. She battles to survive the terrifying darkness. With long hours of nothing to do but wait in fear, she grapples through obscure dreams and memories of the past.
Deeply evocative, Let Me Go is a suspenseful Coming of Age story, and something a little different from the New Adult genre.
H.M. Ward, #1 Bestselling New Adult author in the world, describes the New Adult genre (and it definitely applies to Let Me Go): “New Adult isn’t about age, although the characters tend to be early 20’s. Themes tend to revolve around getting acquainted with life, addressing darker subject matters. It’s not about sex, either. It’s about getting the rose-colored glasses of childhood bitchslapped off your face by the phenomenon known as life.”

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
My story is actually cross genre. It starts out with a very captivating, suspenseful prologue which continues to be weaved in and out of the Coming of Age/New Adult story of the twins, Gabby & Olivia, and their little sister, Emma. It makes it hard to market as it’s hitting three different genres. The sequel, Captured Again is a bit easier, as it’s strictly New Adult/Romantic Suspense.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Just start writing. Don’t worry about the first draft, just get it down in black and white. All the rest will come.
L.L. Akers is originally from the Midwest where she grew up climbing trees, haystacks, and haylofts–escaping into other worlds with a good book.
She now lives in the South, the silly wife of a serious man, and mother of two very gifted and fetching offspring, a chubby beagle that looks astonishingly like a mini-cow, a deranged terrier as well as five Koi fish, a herd of tiny but boastful lizards, and dozens of obnoxiously loud serenading frogs.
After a career in human resources, she now pursues life as a recluse writer hanging out at home in her PJs with her iPad, Burts Bees lip balm and her posse of creatures. Regardless of her self-isolation, she can still be lured outside for brief moments by the scent of freshly mowed grass and a bowl full of cherries.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I began proofreading books, and then moved on to content development editing, and all the while I kept thinking maybe I need to write my own book. The story started bubbling and then… it exploded in my brain. I had to write it.
