Just Checking In From My Writer's Cave + Giveaway

I hadn't realised it's been so long since I posted. Sorry about that! I've basically been locked inside my writer's cave and I don't notice the time flying by when that happens.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you guys know what's going on because I haven't released anything for a few months, which is killing me seeing as I have books that are ready to publish.

I have decided that Elemental Killers is going to be a background project. I promise the whole series will be re-released at some point, but because four books takes a lot of work so I'm going to be dipping in and out of them while focusing on other new projects. I want it back out there and I want you guys to be able to finish the series, but I need to work on the ideas I'm most enthusiastic about when they arise otherwise they don't leave me alone. Editing 4 books at once is a nightmare as it's hard too keep the momentum. I need to write in between each book.

That leads me on to what I'm doing now. If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter you'll know I'm on the second round of edits for a new novel, which I'm only calling B.O.M at the moment (the title's initial). This is a totally new standalone and it should be with my betas by the end of the week. I can't say for certain when it'll be released yet.

There is also the matter of the contemporary novel with romantic elements that is finished and ready to be published. The reason I have not done this is because I've been querying agents with it. For those of you who don't know this can take up to 6-8 weeks for the initial query and then even longer if the agent wants to read samples. I can't wait for you guys to read this book and I hate not publishing it straight away, but I'd love an agent so waiting is part of how the industry works. So, wish me luck with this book :-)

That's about it for now, so I'll leave you with a giveaway that I've donated to for Ayprl Baker's Romance blogfest over at My Crazy Corner.

Happy reading,

Autism Awareness Day Blog Tour & Giveaway

Today is Autism Awareness Day and, having known people with autism, when I saw R J Scott looking for people to host as part of this tour to promote awareness I couldn't not sign up. You can see RJ's master post here.

But for now here are some facts you might not know about autism.


While some people with autism live independent lives, others may need a lifetime of specialist support. Autism can have a profound and sometimes devastating effect on individuals and families.
Autism doesn't just affect children. Children with autism grow up to be adults with autism.
Autism is a hidden disability - you can't always tell if someone has it.
Some people with autism have an accompanying learning disability, learning difficulty or mental health problem. 
One of the best known forms of autism is Asperger syndrome. People with the condition are often of average or above-average intelligence. They have fewer speech problems than people with other types of autism, but may find it difficult to understand and process language.
While some people with autism live independent lives, others may need a lifetime of specialist support. Autism can have a profound and sometimes devastating effect on individuals and families. 

Also as part of the hop, I'm giving away 5 copies of Summer Demons. All you have to do is fill in the form below.

I have also put the Seasons of Change Box Set back on sale for one week only.

Writing Update & Giveaway

I posted this on my Facebook the other day, but for those of you who may have missed it here's what's going on with my writing. I've had a few people asking about release dates over the last few days and whilst I don't have dates, here's what you can expect in 2015.

  • I'm currently rewriting the entire Elemental Killers series. Book 1 is with a few of my betas, and I've nearly finished editing book 2. All four books were complete, but I wasn't happy with book 1 and decided to do major rewrites on it (the start has been redone from scratch) rather than publish books 3 & 4, which need editing. Anyway, I'm hoping to release all four books at once towards the end of the year so the series will finally be finished.
  • I have an Upper YA/NA contemporary romance complete that I've been keeping a secret. I will reveal more when I decide to publish. 
  • I'm planning an Upper YA/NA contemporary novel and will begin drafting it this week. I hope to publish it mid-year (fingers crossed).
  • If I find the time I may start Seasons of Change Volume Two for an autumn release of the first novella. This is more tentative than the rest of the projects.

So, I know I don't have anything definite, but there will be books releasing at some point. Please be patient with me while I get Elemental Killers in order; I need to complete it for personal reasons so I can move on as well as wanting it out there for you guys to finish.

And now for a giveaway.

It's open to US, UK, CA and ends on April 1st.
