Book Blitz: Wonderwall by M.H. Soars

Today, I'm showing off M.H. Soars NA contemporary romance novel, Wonderwall, and I really do love the cover for this novel. Beautiful yet simple. I also have a guest post by M.H. where she shares what sparked the idea for Wonderwall. And be sure to enter the Giveaway for a chance to win a $20 Amazon gift card and an ebook copy of Wonderwall!

Wonderwall by M.H. Soars
Publication date: October 28th 2015
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance


There is something magical when best friends fall in love. Liv and Sebastian used to be inseparable until circumstances beyond their control destroyed their fairytale romance to dust.

Liv hasn’t seen Sebastian since he walked out of her life five years ago. When she accepted her internship in London, she never dreamed their paths would cross again. Not when Sebastian is a celebrity, a singer in one of the most popular boy bands of all times. Living in the same city, their worlds couldn’t be farther apart. But when two people are destined to be together, they can’t outrun fate.


M. H. Soars always knew creative arts were her calling but not in a million years did she think she would become an author. With a background in fashion design she thought she would follow that path. But one day, out of the blue, she had an idea for a book. One page turned into ten pages, ten pages turned into a hundred, and before she knew, her first novel, The Prophecy of Arcadia, was born.

M. H. Soars resides in Florida with her husband and baby daughter. She is currently working on the Arcadian Wars series, and the Love Me, I'm Famous series.

GUEST POST by M.H. Soars

The Spark of a Novel

I think 99% of authors will say that the question they are asked the most is how they get their inspiration for their books. The answer to that question will vary. Dreams, songs, a driver who cuts you off, your desire to eat a doughnut even though you shouldn’t. In essence LIFE is the main source of anyone who creates.

Wonderwall was a book that came out of the blue. I wasn’t planning on writing it in the immediate future. My first novel in the New Adult genre was actually going to be We Used to Be Friends, the now second book in the series. But I’m so happy that Wonderwall got to be the first because it’s my favorite book to date.

So what sparked the idea for Wonderwall? Was it the song by Oasis? Not exactly. It was a song by a band I really never followed or paid attention to, even though the world had gone off-kilter over it. If you guessed One Direction, you are correct. So there I was, going to work, when Story of My Life started to play. (FYI, I get a lot of my ideas on the way to work, I actually see scenes play out in front of me when I should be paying attention to traffic instead). Anyway, back to what I was saying, the song came on and I wondered what would it be like to date a guy in a very popular boy band? And that was the A-HA moment for Wonderwall.

But it wasn’t the very beginning. The A-HA moment was not the Genesis of the story (I’m making s**t up as I go here. Who am I with all these fancy terms?). I can’t pinpoint the time when the little seed came into my mind. “A girl going to live in London on a year long internship at a swanky hotel. She finds love there. It will be complicated”.

I had this idea in the back of my head and then the One Direction song came in, mixed with the seed (maybe the song was the water?) and bang! A-HA moment.

What came next was a series of WHAT IFs questions that helped place Liv and Sebastian’s story in the world of the Love Me, I’m Famous series I’d been brewing for months. Like I stated earlier, I planned to launch the series with We Used to be Friends (Kennedy and Skylar’s story). Wonderwall was never meant to be part of this series. It was going to be a standalone. But now I cannot envision Love Me, I’m Famous without Liv and Sebastian in it, which proves that sometimes it’s freaking awesome to go off the rails.

And now for the Giveaway!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!


  1. Congratulations, MH!
    We never know when inspiration will hit, be it music or something else. As you said, we just have to pay attention to life.

  2. Isn't that how stories come together? A bit of this, a glimmer of that...

  3. I love the premise behind her book. I don't think I've ever read a book with a boy band member as the hero!

  4. That happens to me too! I often have seeds of ideas for whole years before one last thing sparks a writing frenzy. ^_^

    Wonderwall is going on my TBR list.

  5. Ooh, Wonderwall sounds like such a fun book. "What if" questions often shape how my stories turn out, too. Congrats to M. H.!
