Lilliana Anderson The Beauty in Between Too Close Blog Tour


Too Close
Prequel of the Beautiful Series
Release Date - July 30, 2013

Before A Beautiful Struggle, Katrina and David's friendship was a bond that couldn't be broken.
Starting with that fated moment when David carried Katrina to the emergency room, we travel back through David's memories as he waits to hear that his best friend and the one woman he truly cares for is going to survive...
“I can’t lose her. You don’t understand how important she is to me,” I ramble. I guess I’m in shock because all I can think about is the sight of all that blood over Katrina’s beautiful face. “She’s my world. I can’t lose her.”
This is book one in the novella series 'The Beauty in Between' the companion series to Lilliana Anderson's best selling 'A Beautiful' series


 A Beautiful Struggle
Book One of the Beautiful Series

*** ADULT CONTENT WARNING *** contains sex scenes not suitable for under 18

Katrina Mahoney has a very full life attending university to study a law degree, training for triathlons and now she is working part time as well. She couldn’t possibly find time for a relationship, especially after her last one ended so catastrophically.
Right now she is content focusing on work, study and training while hanging out with her best friend David Taylor, a womaniser with a heart of gold that would do anything for Katrina – except watch her get hurt again.
That is, until the dashing Elliot Roberts, a junior solicitor from her work, shows an interest in her despite their office’s ‘No Dating’ policy.
Katrina struggles with following her heart or following her mind and has trouble seeing where her heart truly lies


A Beautiful Forever
Book Two of the Beautiful Series

After ruining the best relationship he has ever had, Elliot's life takes a turn for the worse and he isn't happy with who he's become. 
Deciding to spend three months in the UK on a working visa, in a bid to find himself again, he boards a plane to London. During the flight he meets Paige, a fellow Aussie with a closed heart and a lot to hide. 
The closer he gets to Paige the more he's sure that she's hiding something. Will it be enough to send him running? Or does he love her enough to fight this time?



Bestselling Author of the A Beautiful Series, Alter and the Confidante Trilogy, Lilliana has always loved to read and write, considering it the best form of escapism that the world has to offer. 
Australian born and bred, she writes New Adult Romance revolving around her authentically Aussie characters as well as a biographical trilogy based on an ex-Sydney sex worker, named Angelien. 
Lilliana feels that the world should see Australia for more than just it's outback and tries to show characters in more of a city setting. 
When she isn't writing, she wears the hat of 'wife and mother' to her husband and four children. 
Before Lilliana turned to writing, she worked in a variety of industries and studied humanities and communications before transferring to commerce/law at university. 
Originally from Sydney's Western suburbs, she currently lives a fairly quiet life in suburban Melbourne.

Connect with Lilliana:


First, tell us about yourself – where  you live, your family, and those sorts of details.

I live in Australia with my husband and four children. Originally, I’m from Sydney but now we are in Melbourne. My kids are all young and are either in primary school or kinder so writing has been a great job for me to have so I’m always home when they need me.

How long have  you been writing?

Professionally- almost a year now. But I’ve always written in some capacity, I’m not so great at verbalising, so writing has always been my coping mechanism.

Do you have a favorite place to write?

On my couch with all my family around me.

Why did you decide to write Too Close:  The Beauty in Between?

After writing A Beautiful Struggle, a lot of readers were saying that they wanted to know more about David and Katrina before we met them in Struggle, so it seemed important to me to deliver something that would answer all their questions.

Who is your favorite character in your book and why?

David. He’s the main character and he just quietly cares. He is loyal to all those he cares about. Especially Trina who he only wants happiness for

How about your least favorite character?  What makes them less appealing to you?

Cassie. She’s the kind of girl who’s willing to do or say anything to get what she wants

Do you proofread/edit your own books or do you get someone to do that for you?

I used to do it all myself, but on this book, I had someone do it for me.

What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

Think about new books to write! No, seriously though, I love reading and spending time with my family. I also love art and spend a lot of time painting and drawing.

Do you read much and if so who are your favorite authors?

I read a lot. Although there are too many authors to name. My favourites are Barbara Kingsolver, Marion Keyes and Patricia Cornwell.

What question do you wish that someone would ask about your book, but nobody has? Write it out here, then answer it.

Are your characters based on real people?

And the answer is yes - to some extent they are.
