Guest Blog with D.M. Sears and giveaway for Eden’s Darkness

I love a good paranormal story, and this one sounds thrilling. This is the 2nd Guest Blog I’m hosting for Fabulosity Reads. I will state, once again, that I have not read this book, but i am hosting these guest blogs because I think it’s fascinating to find out about other writers and what they are writing. And so I … Read More

The Writer’s Hot Seat

I was tagged last week by the fabulously talented Jennifer St George and then on the same day there was another tag by another wonderful fellow RWA author, Heather Garside in this series of rolling blogs where I’m asked to talk about my writing – I feel very popular! Thanks ladies for thinking of me and including me in this … Read More

Guest Blogger at ARRA Today

Hi all, I’m the guest blogger over on the ARRA blog today, talking about my love for romance, but when romance isn’t enough for me – that’s when I need a heady dose of ‘other’ (I’m talking the third player in the story – the world, the suspense, the evil doer. All things paranormal, fantasy and beyond). Come and check … Read More

DARK MOON

I revealed my new cover the other day and now I have my lovely official blurb for my novel. So here it is – my first ever published urban paranormal, the first in my Witch-Were Chronicles.  It will be out on March 15th. Enjoy. Lately, Skye Collins has been unable to shake the feeling that she’s being watched. After a … Read More

Dark Moon Cover Revealed

I know I already blogged today, but I couldn’t sit on this until tomorrow. I just got my cover for Dark Moon from my agent, Alex Adsett, and I’m really excited about it. I love the movie poster feel. It’s so dramatic. What do you think?

Reflections

It’s true what they say – what a difference a day makes. Except, I’d change that to say, What a difference a year makes. I’ve read a bunch of blogs reflecting on the last year: reflecting on what they’d learned; looking at whether predictions they’d made about themselves, friends, family, their aspirations, their jobs, the world in general had come … Read More

Catching Up with Friends – new and old.

I’ve had a really unusual weekend for me this weekend – I’ve actually been out for dinner on Friday and out for lunch today and neither of them were with family or for a family thing. I was out with friends. It’s not that I don’t get out, but it’s not something that happens a lot and for it to … Read More

Prioritising – how do you know when enough is enough?

I’ve just read this great post on Kristen Lamb’s blog about prioritising. She uses a great a great analogy about reaping and sowing that I won’t repeat here – if you’re interested, check out the brilliance directly here: http://warriorwriters.wordpress.com/2013/11/05/author-success-the-laws-of-sowing-reaping I know for my own part I often struggle with prioritising. People think I’m so organised, but to use a swimming … Read More

My Halloween Monsters

After his terrifying experience in the Luna Park Hollywood Horrors attraction (yes, a bad parenting decision – thanks for rubbing it in!), I really thought my youngest one wouldn’t want to go the horror themed dress up this year for Halloween. In fact, I wasn’t even certain he’d want to do Halloween for fear of seeing someone dressed up scary … Read More
