While You’re Awake

While You're Awake Sharable 2

Amber Stokes, has a new novelette coming out and is revealing her cover today! It sounds like a unique take on the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale and I’m looking forward to reading it. First, here’s what the book is about.

About the Book

 Sweet New Adult Contemporary Romance Novelette

 There’s no rest for the fearful.

Ava always knew the bees would come. Just when she’s settled into a place of her own, freelance editing and savoring her independence, her rental house is invaded by a swarm of honey bees. And with their arrival, her lifelong fear morphs into a full-fledged panic that steals her sleep—and her peace of mind.

Keegan knows all about fear. When he meets Ava at the coffee shop where he works, he can’t help but come to her rescue. Together with his German shepherds, Sun and Moon, he sets out to break the “curse” that hovers over Tired Girl. But is it possible to conquer nightmares and live a dream while you’re awake?

This sweet novelette is a contemporary re-imagining of the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale that sheds light on the worries that bind us and the love that leads to peace.

Personality Quiz

Are you Sleeping Beauty, a barista, or an angel? This fun and quirky personality quiz takes some of the personality types from While You’re Awake and offers you a chance to discover how you inspire others. Hopefully you’ll be encouraged to keep being awesome, wonderful you!

*Disclaimer: This is just a for-fun quiz. The results are designed to encourage but not to diagnose! 😉


When I took the quiz, I got Sleeping Beauty. 😀  That actually fits really well, too.

You’re a gentle soul who reaches out to others in quiet ways. You feel deeply and therefore make a great listener. While you often need some time to yourself to rest and put life in perspective, you add beauty to all your relationships. Create the space you need to recharge, and remember that you are a special blessing to those around you! Keep up the great work. 🙂

    It sounds like quite an interesting book! 🙂
    Fun quiz too. I got an Angel: “You’re a ceaseless server, someone who’s constantly noticing ways to help others and then working hard to fill the needs. You’re a great observer—insightful and attune to what’s going on around you. On behalf of all those who have been blessed by the “angels” in their lives, thank you for caring and making things happen! Just remember it’s okay to let others step up to help you, too. :)”

      It is an interesting book! And short enough that I read it all in one afternoon (with breaks). The review is going up on the 22nd. 🙂 Aww! That sounds perfect from what I know of you.

      • Raechel says:

        Those kind of books are nice often-times, when you don’t have a ton of time for reading. I’m looking forward to your review! Oh, thank you very much! 🙂

      • Faith Blum says:

        That’s exactly what I did. 😛 I didn’t have time to read any of the other books I *supposed* to be reading, so I read that one instead. 🙂
        You’re welcome!

    Hi, Faith! Thank you so much for your lovely cover reveal post. And I’m glad you and Raechel enjoyed taking the quiz! It was fun to create. 🙂

    Since you got to see the descriptions for “Sleeping Beauty” and “Angel,” I thought you might want to see the one for “Barista,” as well…


    You’re a perky encourager whose fun-loving ways bring happiness to others. You consistently deliver inspiration and motivation, something that’s desperately needed in a world full of distractions and weariness. Take time to let the joy flow in so it can keep on flowing out to others. Thank you for looking at the bright side and helping the rest of us to see it, too!


    And now you know! 😉 (I always think it’s fun to see what the different results are for personality quizzes.)

    As for the length of While You’re Awake…I like both reading and writing the novella-ish length, because it really is nice to have the satisfaction of enjoying a complete little story in a day, isn’t it? But I’m wondering if I should apologize for giving you a reason to procrastinate on your other reading, haha. 😉

    But seriously, thank you for reading and helping to spread the word!


    • Faith Blum says:

      Hi, Amber! You’re very welcome. 🙂 No wonder I didn’t get the Barista.

      I think it’s fun to see the different results, too. 🙂

      Well, technically, yours should have been next on my list anyway since it is the first one I need to review. And I might have started one of the others, but I would have had to turn my computer on to find out which one was the next in the series.
