Phalngewilly Grandypants: What’s in a name?

When I’m considering a new New Adult Contemporary Romance book to add to my collection, the first thing I do is read the blurb. My preference is dual POV, so I look out for that. I want a believable conflict, so I look out for that too. Sometimes, I fancy a gritty read, so I…

For The Love of Reading #TheQ4Q

Recently, something on Twitter caught my eye. A true story about a young woman whose life had taken an utterly terrifying and brutal turn when she was just eighteen years old. NAalley – a fantastic site about everything New Adult, put their heads together to figure out a way to help and they came up…

I should probably blog about this….

I’m terrible at marketing – truly terrible! For example, my book has been free on Kindle since yesterday and I haven’t even blogged about it yet! See – terrible! Mostly though, it’s because I worry about shoving things down people’s throats. I rarely tweet buy links to my book, I figure I’d rather waffle on…

A peek at my WIP ‘Finding Immortal’ and my battle with ‘the pit’

For the last few days I’ve been in a funk. You know that point where you can no longer form a coherent sentence? Where any words you string together are a bit crap, or even a lot crap. And even those times where you seem to be able to kill it when writing dialogue but…

A Crazy, Fun Day

Without a doubt, yesterday was one of the funnest days I’ve had in a while. As you all know, I gave away Fractured Immortal for one day only.

The Little Things We Do

I’m inspired by my cat to write this. Yes, that’s right. My cat. He has a weird habit of eating with his paws. Rather than shove his face into his food, he picks up each piece of meat with his claws and eats it that way. I have no idea why he does it and…

Oh Me, Oh My, It’s Alive!

It seems a long time ago that I first put pen to paper and started to scribble in a notebook. Said notebook then got found by my very artistic children and pages started to be pulled. Before I knew it, my nice thick notebook was reduced to a few scribbled upon pages and not much…

Here Come the Nerves

Vomit keeps rising in my throat. Maybe that’s a SLIGHT exaggeration, but I am definitely queasy right now. As I type this post, it’s 23.55pm on the 19th of December. That means Fractured Immortal is 24 hours and 5 minutes away from being released. It’s the first time I have ever put a book out…
