The soft purr of an engine igniting filled the road with a low rumbling bass. The sleek, silver, streamlined car roared by, waking the neighbours. Effortlessly, the gears changed with a quiet click of the clutch pedal.
Adrenaline coursed through my veins as I pressed the gas pedal further, accelerating in double quick time. I wanted more speed, addicted to the rush I was experiencing.
The sexy lines in the bodywork, the stunning physique and performance called out to me, forcing my attention. It demanded the gazes of the public, and it was deserved.
I was hooked. A true fast car fanatic.
Seek out the positive, and you’ll be happy.
Feed the negative, and despair will follow.
I slammed my fists down on the bed and shoved the laptop aside. I’d had enough. One problem fixed, another showed up. I couldn’t win, and I had no idea what it was I was doing, or how to rectify a problem without causing another. Again.
I wasn’t a technology genius. I got by with the limited information I had, and that was usually enough.
Not today, not yesterday.
Yet, in my frustration at my laughable attempts at formatting, I couldn’t help but think of the many that had already gone through the same issues as me but had still managed to upload and convert a decent document.
What was wrong with me?
I researched, watched videos, read guides, and even that wasn’t enough. I still had issues.
I wasn’t the type to be beat, and often in my stubborn, control-freak ways I always came out on top. I always found a way, the whole ‘if you don’t succeed try again’ mantra would always play in my mind.
I always craved for knowledge, to be better at something new. I wished I understood the technical jargon, and the ninja skills required to handle a ‘simple’ ebook conversion.
My flicker of hope dwindled.
I was desperate.
What was I supposed to do now?
I’ve been sitting on this cover for a good few weeks now, and I’m SO excited that I FINALLY get to share it with you! I want to thank the amazing bloggers that have taken part in today’s reveal, they literally rock my world with their awesomeness!
Less chit-chat from me, and time to reveal! I hope you like it!

AND, the best part? I have a RELEASE DATE!
Do you want to know when?
MARCH 14th, 2014
My life was changing, morphing into something greater than I could have anticipated. I was becoming something I didn’t recognise as myself anymore. A Werewolf.
I was different.
‘Hybrid’ was what they called me, and the weight that rested against that one word was crippling. They depended on me to bring them safety. What made me so special?
Oh, that’s right. My destiny.
I was sucked into a world I’d had no idea existed. Twenty-one years as a human, and this was what I found out.
My travelling plans, my writing degree, all of it was gone within one night. One evil night that robbed my humanity.
I wasn’t completely sour. Life had been unfair a while ago, only now I’d had something worth fighting for besides myself. Something to live for.
I was afraid for the others. I couldn’t let them down. I wouldn’t let them down.
I’d gone to bed a human and woken up a Werewolf.
A special Werewolf.

I’ve been staring at the template of this post for a good few hours, wondering whether or not I should write today, or wait until Wednesday.
I’m going to let you in on a secret; I’m terrible at keeping secrets! While I can’t stop myself from mentioning this, I can just about manage to keep some of the secret hidden.
Good grief, I feel like I’m writing in riddles. I hypothesise that as it’s Sunday evening, my brain clearly isn’t functioning at full speed. See what’s happened now? I’ve completely digressed from what was important.
*Drum roll please*
On Wednesday I will be posting (along with several awesome bloggers) the COVER REVEAL for Nature’s Destiny! Not only am I excited to share the beautiful cover, but I’ll be announcing the release date too!
While I endure sleepless nights from my excitement, I hope to fill you with intrigue and anticipation too. It’s a shared journey after all 😉
If you’re a blogger interested in being a part of the cover reveal too, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
