Big News!

Sooo ...

If you've been following my Twitter or Facebook, you'll probably know that I had some great news recently, but I haven't been allowed to reveal it.

It's been killing me to keep it a secret for 2 weeks, but finally I've had the okay and am allowed to tell you because everything has been finalised.

So here's my big news:

On Friday, I signed a contract with Limitless Publishing!!

On November 4th I woke up to an email where they wanted the full manuscript. Obviously, being an insecure author, I sent it off with hope, but told myself nothing would come of it. However, then on November 14th, I woke up to another email saying they would like to offer me a contract.

I don't think I have ever gotten out of bed so quickly! It was the best way to wake up and I seriously couldn't believe it. I will still re-reading the email 6 hours later to check that I hadn't read it wrong, or that it had somehow changed.

Anyway, they have acquired my new urban fantasy thriller and I'm ecstatic to be working with them!

I haven't said much about this book throughout writing and editing, but it's different from my latest work. I've gone back to a darker story and there is also no romance. I can't wait to tell you all more about it!

Happy reading!

Release Day ~ Spring Knight

It's here!

Spring Knight releases today and is out now on Amazon.

This is the book I've been most worried about releasing, as the main character Kayleigh is closest to me with her personality. However, I had a lot of fun writing it, and I hope you love Kayleigh and Aiden.

Here are all of the links, details, an excerpt, and some teasers.

Happy reading!

Spring Knight

Genre: YA Romance
Length: Novella

Blurb:
She wants the leading role in everything but her own life.

Kayleigh Barrow always gets the leading role. Top of her class, well liked, and a good actress, she’s most comfortable on stage where she can pretend to be someone else and forget the real Kayleigh exists. However, when auditions for the latest production are opened up to the entire university, the lines between fantasy and reality start to blur.

The last person Kayleigh expected to audition was Aiden Hanson. Renowned player and popular on campus, Kayleigh has tried to conceal her feeling from him for years. She knows it would be stupid to think he’d want her or an actual relationship, but when they’re thrown together in the production, Kayleigh can no longer hide from him.

No matter how much she tries to distances herself, he’s always there. Neither of them can deny their attraction, but Kayleigh has to question Aiden’s motives. He’s never had a serious relationship and she refuses to be another conquest. Yet, when her acting starts to become real and she can no longer hide behind her character, Kayleigh must decide whether Aiden’s worth the risk, or if he’s only after a challenge and will end up breaking her heart.

Spring Knight is the 4th book in the Seasons of Change series. However, all books are standalone reads so can be enjoyed separately, but can also be enjoyed as part of a series because characters overlap.



Out Now!




Excerpt

Black. It was the only colour she could see as she stood on top of the platform. Her vision had tunnelled with the waves of vertigo that hit her body, allowing only the dark colour into her eye line. With the strength of a gale force wind, it pounded on her chest, causing her to stumble back as its icy hold sent a shiver along her spine. The break from seeing the ground wasn’t enough, though. She couldn’t go far enough to feel safe. If she moved more than one step in any direction she would fall.
She felt dizzy ... lightheaded.
It was the worst possible time to find out she was scared of heights, but maybe it was the thought of jumping rather than the actual distance. Not only did she feel faint, but also sick. Kayleigh didn’t even know how those two actions could combine, but she let out a nervous giggle and hoped another type of blackness would capture her mind before she made a complete fool of herself. It probably made her sound insane, but she couldn’t stop the sound.
No longer could she find the answer to why she was on a platform, willing herself to fall. It had seemed logical and easy on the climb up, but now she suddenly felt as if she was standing on top of a building, rather than a few metres in the air. Her heart was pounding in her chest; the rhythm frantic as she urged herself to peer over the edge once more. Palms slick with sweat, her fingers slipping over each other, she twitched nervously as she strained her neck to catch a glimpse of the floor.
“I can do this. Just lean back and it will all be over,” she muttered to herself, only adding to the crazy image she had going on.

People were shuffling anxiously on the ground, unsettled by her actions. “Block them out, Kayleigh. You can do this,” she chanted ritually under her breath before she inhaled sharply. Slowly counting, she exhaled with a deep sigh when she reached twenty. Her whole body relaxed with the action and Kayleigh closed her eyes, trying to find a sense of peace and stillness. Unfortunately, all it did was make her knees weaker. Reopening her eyes, Kayleigh kept her head up and her chin parallel with the floor. If she didn’t look down, what she was about to do couldn’t scare her … at least that’s what she told herself.

Promotion For Authors - 12 Days of Christmas


I can't believe I'm writing this post in October, as I don't want to think about Christmas just yet. However, I have to plan ahead and get everything ready, so here goes.

I've decided to organise an event for authors over the month of December called 12 Days of Christmas. It will run from Dec 1st to Dec 12th, and authors will be able to either post on my blog, donate to the group giveaways, or both. So that's where you all come in; I need authors to fill the event.

If you're interested, all of the details are on the top of the sign up form below, but make sure you sign up quick because spots are already filling up fast!

If you have any other questions feel free to email.
