BloodWish is Coming – Only Nine Days To Go

Finally, after three years, I've finished writing BloodWish, the 4th and final installment of my Dantonville Legacy Series. It's currently with my editor and after that it'll go to my beta readers who'll check for any errors and typos before the publication date, December 19th.

That's only nine days away!

It's been a labour of love besides being a huge book to write, at around 100K words. But Alec and Laura's story was always meant to be an epic, and it will be hard saying goodbye to them, and the rest of my characters. But, alas, everything must end. Although, saying that, both Alec and Laura will make guest appearances in further books I've planned on the other major characters in the series, namely, Terens, Jake, Cal and Sam. Each of them has their own story to tell. So, stay tuned.

Welcome Back to the World of The Grid.
Where heroic bad-asses looking for a second chance fight a war among us in the shadows.

Marcus De Monte was born in Hell, both literally and figuratively. Birthed by a demon, sired by a human and considered a failure from the moment he took his first breath. Nothing more than fuel for the Hell fires. Allowed to live by Lucifer himself, he became determined to reach the top of the food chain by becoming an elite assassin in the Dark Lord’s army.
After reaching that bloody, hard-won goal he chose a path not ordered by Hell—one leading to love. But that love became doomed the moment it bloomed. Fueled by rage of its loss, his payment was the shameful duty of bodyguard to the Keeper of Madness – Reno Sundown and his family. But denied destiny has fatal consequences. The one chance Marcus had of being reunited with the one he loved vaporized.

But destiny has a way of masking itself until its time, and Marcus is no exception. Will the newest Keeper find his heartbeat, even when it beats quietly from the past?

Or has Hell played the ultimate trick on Marcus… and the past to burn love to ash once more?
And the dark power of Murder has a new host, and it has its own scores to settle.

Before Roger, the engagement ring and a new lease on life,
I was still Margaret Kellerman
and Liam...well he was still my best friend.

Back then, I had only one goal,
make Liam Collins H-O-T!
Well not too much, I didn't want anyone to know,
how amazing he was.

I always said he could use a little work,
so he wouldn't get picked on as much.
Not that he cared either way,
he wasn't one to give into popularity contests.

All he needed was the right look,
a new haircut, wardrobe and he even learned to
stop saying those corny one liners
and having soap box rants.

There's just one thing...

IT COMPLETELY BACKFIRED.

I didn't think he was going to be that hot...without my help.
After the makeover, the unwanted attention
laughter turning into tears and hope became let downs,
I used to think he was my best friend
and because of Liam, I don't anymore.

AUTHOR NOTE: This is different from the ULTRA SPICY contemporary romances I generally write. If I would to label it, I would probably say it's a mesh of Chic Lit, Romantic Comedy and on the tame end of contemporary romance.

I still recommend you be 18+ to read this book

News and Spring Update

Hi everyone,

It's September here in  Sydney (Australia) and it's Spring. I love Spring. All the flowers are out and my garden is bursting with fresh new blooms. I have an enclosed back verandah/conservatory, which I call my sunroom with wall to wall windows that open directly onto the garden. My desk is right beneath one of them, so when open, the breeze wafts the delicious scent of flowers right to me ... and then I sneeze and sneeze and sneeze!

But hey, I still love Spring.

 

Book News

Firstly - BloodWish should be released this Christmas! I know it's taken a long time to get this final book in this series out, but it's been a trying two years, and as always, family comes first. So, I'm thrilled to be near the end. It's been such a great series to write. 

Also, I love that moment when the image on a book cover is explained. For BloodWish, there's a picture of Laura wearing a stunning garnet and gold headdress/tiara type thing. It's just gorgeous. First moment I saw the cover model with it on, I knew exactly why she was wearing it. And ... I just finished writing that chapter. 

I love it when things come together 

Secondly - From October, I'll be removing my books from Kindle Unlimited and selling them on all other retail sites. So those of you who prefer to buy elsewhere than Amazon, you'll now be able to purchase them on Apple, Barnes & Noble, Kobo ... etc, too.

I'm so excited about that.

BloodPledge and BloodVault needs reviews, so ... 

If you feel so inclined, here are some easy links to leave one:

BloodWish Update

I apologise to my wonderful and extremely patient readers for my delay in releasing BloodWish. As many of you know, I am a full time carer for my mum, who's recently undergone a series of operations - several heart procedures and a double hip replacement. That has taken a toll on my writing time.

But, when I look at the bigger picture, my mum is more important to me than completing a piece of fiction, for I only have a limited time with her.

A book can be written anytime, and it lasts forever.

Yet, saying that, BloodWish will definitely be completed THIS year. I'm more than three-quarters of the way through. And since I write all my own books - every word, line, paragraph and page - I take care to produce the best possible story and reading experience for my readers, and which is why I never rush them.
My readers are too dear to me to give them anything less than my best.
So, please hang in there and be patient with me just a little while longer  

 

Why is everyone on the road an idiot except for me?

Now, I may not be prefect, but I try to stick to the road rules. After all, they're there for the safety of everyone, right? Well, it seems that for some, that's open to interpretation.

Take the young P-plater, for instance. Just got his license having passed both his practical and written test and no longer needs mum or dad sitting beside him, teaching him how to negotiate the tricky business of driving a vehicle on our already crowded roads. Suddenly he's free to take the car out on his own - no parents (aka translate, no moderating influence). Instead he's joined by three to five of his mates - all P-platers themselves. The car is now filled to capacity with adolescent raging hormones!

The only advance warning you get of the teen aged-laden car headed in your direction is the disappearance of the local bird life. They go into hiding. Then everything around you begins to vibrate as the first shock wave hits. You clutch the steering wheel, but it's not an earthquake. It's the steady, pulsing rhythm of loud drumbeats. You glance around and there they are, pulled up alongside, four to five hooded heads bobbing in unison, to whatever it is blaring from their loudspeakers.

And the car itself is a teenage boys fantasy - sleek, shiny and black with wings attached; to make it go faster, presumably, although how much faster you can go in a sixty zone is beyond me. And oh yes, it has double-exhaust pipes the size of the cross-city tunnel! This baby doesn't just hum, it growls.

The hooded kid at the wheel looks over at me and revs the engine. He's got to be kidding! Now, I drive a little red Toyota Yaris. A lawn mower has a bigger engine. I guess he thinks he can't lose. I smile. It's not everyday a woman like myself gets challenged by a hormone.

If the kid hadn't been so excited by the prospect of his beating me to the next red light -a whole hundred meters away - he would've noticed the stern face of the cop sitting in the police car right behind him.

Ah! The little unexpected pleasures in life.

The light just turns green and they thunder off, both exhaust pipes smoking. The police siren starts up and they're pulled over barely fifty meters ahead. I drive past and resist the urge to wave. I get enough pleasure envisioning the scene when their parents have to bail them out of jail.

Thankfully, not all teens are like that. Many are excellent drivers who put to shame some older, more experienced ones.

But, that's another story. I'll keep it for the next blog.
