Just a quick note on Wildfire…

Wow, it has been a long time since I’ve posted on this blog! I definitely need to update this beast.

I just wanted to assure you that Wildfire is on the way. I have no set date yet, but I will shout about it on this blog when it’s available for download.

Thanks for hanging in there. Much love.

The Official Skylight Release Date

Happy new year everyone! Wait… what? It’s April, you say. How did that happen!?!?
Just kidding, but really, how is it April (almost May) already? It’s time for an update.

Thank you for your comments, reviews, encouragement and general interest in Skylight. SO WHY ISN’T IT OUT YET!!!???!!

It’s totally my fault. I severely underestimated how long it could take to polish off a story, how difficult it would be to write a worthy sequel, and how scary it can be. So, maybe I’ve been a total chicken about. Yeah I have. I know people have been waiting, and I know some competition winners have been waiting for their copies. I have not forgotten about you!

The good news is that the story is written, it’s just getting some changes and spell checks from some beta readers. As it changes, I am falling in love with it. Before, I knew Skylight wasn’t a worthy story, nor was it ready for release. So I sat back and just thought about it (for a long time), went social media silent, and toyed with many different ideas to make it better. And now I can confidently give you a release date.

So, the thing you’ve been waiting for: Skylight will be out on July 2nd, come rain, hail or shine (via Amazon and Smashwords). No delays, no pushbacks, no nothing.

Thank you for your patience. You guys are awesome!

More on Skylight + Arcadium Free on Smashwords

Yep. I tried to get it out earlier, but alas. I did not. My bad. Don’t worry though! Skylight is coming back from my beta readers now and with a little fine tuning it should be here in a few weeks. I can’t really stick to a definite date because look how that turned out last time!

I am really excited though!

Also if you’re wondering how much it’s going to be, I’ve decided to keep the e-book at 99c/99p (or whatever Amazon decides is the random exchange price for the Brits!?).

Also Arcadium is free on Smashwords for the moment, so click here to check that out.

Next week I’m heading to the Jane Austen Festival in Bath, UK. Exciting! It’s basically nine days of theatre, costume wearing, readings, talks, walks and regency workshops. And the costumes have been taking forever to make! So that’s probably another reason Skylight got a tad delayed. 😀

Skylight Update

Just a quick update you might be interested in. SKYLIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Arcadium sequel is almost here. I’m putting out a tentative date for one month from now, so… about end of August 2013 (barring any literary incidents [whatever they are!] that may occur). Of course, I’ll keep you updated if that date changes.

If you haven’t seen the cover here it is:


Ooooooooooooooooooh Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh Oooooooooh. Okay I’ll stop.
Why is it called Skylight?? You’ll just have to read it and find out.

On another note I have to give a big thank you to Ashley at Bookish Brunette for letting me participate in Zombie Craze 2013! If you haven’t seen my choose your own adventure guest post then click here. Lots of participants died 😦 (sorry!) but some survived 🙂 so well done and thanks to everyone who had a go! You are all so very brave. Also big thank you to Toni at My Book Addiction for reviewing Arcadium. Wow. It’s a great review. Thank you thank you thank you.

Also you might be interested to know I have a third and final book planned for the Arcadium series (that was never meant to be a series… so I said on the internet a year ago). All I can say is it’s called Wildfire, it’s all planned out, though not written yet (mostly), and it even has a cover… which has not been revealed yet but I think it’s one of my favs. And the blurb will be released with Skylight. So there you go.

Anyway, I think I have work to do now that I’ve given myself the almost pressure of an almost date! Laters x

Zombie Craze 2013

June is the month of Zombie Craze over at the Bookish Brunette blog, and ARCADIUM is taking part! Yessss.

I’ll be giving away copies of Arcadium, and revealing my Choose Your Own Adventure zombie challenge. That’s right. It’s as awesome as it sounds. You’ll become Florence West (the main character of Arcadium, for those who haven’t read it yet) and you’ll be charting her journey pre-Arcadium. You’ll have to make all the right choices to safely cross Melbourne and make it to your little sister, Liss. But don’t forget all those flesh hungry zoms! Will you survive?

My guest post will be out later in the month, so keep an eye out for it, and don’t forget to let everyone know how far you made it in the comments! You should probably start stretching now so that you’re nice and limbered up when you take on the challenge. Just sayin. Good Luck!
