Cover Reveal Party!

It’s time to partaaaayyy!

Yup, you read that right. This Thursday (6th Sept) I’m throwing an online party for the cover reveal of Sniper Wanted and I’d hate for you to miss out on any of it. I have a super kick-ass giveaway planned. I promised I was going big this year, and I am. I have four book releases coming up in the span of two months. Let me repeat that. FOUR books in TWO months. Stay tuned for all this crazy excitement!

Come join me over on facebook at my event on Thursday for the big reveal. Sniper Wanted is my comeback – I hope you’ll return with me.

Seven 11 Blog Hop & GIVEAWAYS!!

Seven 11 blog hopHappy October! It’s my favourite month of the year, and the blog hop returns for its new 2.0 updated version. What does that mean? Well, there are a few changes. Firstly, it’s now a quarterly hop. Before you get all sad that our snippets are less frequent, we’re actually bringing a whole new lot of fun in the way of giveaways. Every author in this month’s hop will be offering their own giveaway. Scroll down below to find out what!

So, what teaser do I have for you all this time? Well, how about 7 lines from Warrior’s Duty, Nature’s Destiny 4? I know many of you are anxiously awaiting this one, and I’m sorry I don’t have a date for you yet, but I’m working really hard on making this one the big finale. Here goes. . .

I  wasn’t  going  to  watch  Riley,  Nick  or  Shane  collapse  next  to  me;  I  wouldn’t  allow  that.

Breathing  heavily,  I  tucked  in  my  legs,  getting  the  grip  I  knew  I  needed  for  what  was  about  to  come  next. 

Clenching  my  teeth,  I  grabbed  onto  the  hell  beast’s  large  paw  that  held  me  down  and  slowly  lifted  until  the  gap  was  large  enough  for  me  to  escape.

I  rolled  away,  but  I  was  unfit  for  anything  else.  My  body  was  becoming  paralysingly  numb.  I  remained  on  my  side,  dragging  myself  until  all  feeling  had  left.

This  was  it.  The  demons  were  going  to  win.

Seven 11 Blog Hop

I’ve  been  staring  at  the  screen  for  hours,  trying  to  determine  the  best  opening  line  for  this  blog  post,  but  my  brain  is  frazzled,  dead  to  any  and  all  words.  I’m  a  blank  dictionary  hiding  in  the  burnt  out  corner,  hoping  for  lexis  to  come  flooding  back  to  me.  It’s  exhausting,  isn’t  it?  Trying  to  find  the  right  thing  to  say  when  you’re  mentally  drained.  I  think  I  need  a  power  nap,  or  something  a  little  longer.  Is  it  too  early  in  the  year  to  go  into  hibernation?

This  month  I  have  a  treat  for  you  all.  While  I’m  suffering  with  airhead  syndrome,  it  hasn’t  escaped  my  attention  that  a  lot  of  you  are  anticipating  the  fourth  and  final  book  in  the  Nature’s  Destiny  series.  As  it’s  the  ONE  YEAR  ANNIVERSARY  for  this  hop,  I’m  going  to  share  with  you  the  first  few  lines  of  the  novel.  I’m  in  the  very  early  stages  of  creating  this  one,  but  I’m  still  aiming  for  a  release  this  year.  Please  bear  with  me!

“It’s  all  my  fault.”  I  stared  at  nothing,  blind  to  the  gravestone  I  knew  was  in  front  of  me.  The  rain  catapulted  from  the  sky,  splashing  down  on  the  ground  around  me. 

“You’re  gone,  and  it’s  all  my  fault.”  I  sobbed  into  my  cold  hands,  my  body  heaving  with  motion.  I  cried  harder,  my  throat  sore  from  the  lump  that  had  been  building  with  each  tear.

Water  dripped  from  my  hair  and  face  on  to  my  already  soaked  clothes.  I  was  drenched  to the  bone,  my  arse  numb  from  sitting  in  the  middle  of  the  pack’s  lonely  graveyard  for  hours.  My  burden,  my  despair  had  brought  me  here.

“I  tried,  Lara.  I  tried  so  fucking  hard  to  get  to  you!”

Bloody hell! I almost forgot to type this month’s teaser, and I know that would’ve been devastating. Right?  Anyway, now that I’ve remembered, how about a little less chit chat and a little more show and tell. I got you covered. Next month I intend to release all 3 parts of my werewolf serial, Alpha Wanted, a week apart from one another. So, how about a teaser from part 1?  Alrightey then!

 “It  was  a  mistake,”  I  forced  out  of  my  mouth.  Even  hearing  the  words  out  loud  turned  my  stomach  against  me.

“Sure  didn’t  feel  like  a  mistake  when  you  were  moaning  into  my  mouth.” 

I  turned  to  Ryker,  fixing  my  glare  on  his  rugged  face.  I  hated  how  easy  it  was  for  me  to  lose  control  around  him,  to  lose  all  my  inhibitions  inside  the  pools  of  his  blue  eyes.  I  tightened  my  lips  together.  “It  won’t  be  happening  again,”  I  promised,  keeping  my  grip  firm  on  the  steering  wheel.

“Princess,  that  was  the  best  mistake  I’ve  ever  made.  So  you  can  trust  me  when  I  say  I  intend  to  do  it  again.  I’ll  make  sure  I’ll  never  learn  my  lesson.”

I’m a mixture of excitement and nerves to find out the response to this serial as it’s something I haven’t done before. But, you know what? No great accomplishment was achieved without a little risk taking. So I’m diving in head first. It’s also the closest I’ve come to writing a crime/mystery type of book within the boundaries of paranormal/supernatural goodness. Of course. What’s a little crime solving without a hunky wolf? So be on the lookout for cover reveals/blurbs etc in the next couple of weeks. Yay!

As always there’s many brilliantly talented authors participating on the hop, so be sure to check them out. And GIVEAWAYS! So here’s what’s what this month:

Heather Hildenbrand has a custom Dirty Blood Mug up for grabs! Enter here.
Bethany Lopez has 8 weeks up for grabs on goodreads. Enter here.

Also it’s an exciting month for book releases!
Today, Heather Hildenbrand’s Broken Blood, book 5 in the Dirty Blood series comes out!
Steph Nuss is releasing Pleasured By You on March 20th.
Kayla Smith is releasing The Sacrifice on March 31st.

Congratulations, ladies!

Blimey!  My  days  are  so  busy  melding  into  one  another  that  if  it  wasn’t  for  an  email  late  last  night  I’d  have  forgotten  that  today  is  in  fact  the  11th  October.  You  know,  that  time  of  the  month  when  I,  amongst  others,  share  7  lines  of  our  WIP.  Here’s  what  I  have  to  offer  today  from  Guardians  Dynasty  (Nature’s  Destiny  #3).  Oh,  and  before  I  forget  there’s  some  great  giveaways  going  this  month  that  you’ll  want  to  check  out,  too.  😉

I  faced  the  burning  ashes  of  the  land  I  once  called  home,  dying  with  every  breath  that  left  my  body.  Black  was  all  that  remained  for  my  vision  had  lost  its  affinity  to  colour.  The  creatures  brought  an  indefinite  darkness  that  was  only  ever  highlighted  by  the  raging  red  of  fire.  The  sun  no  longer  existed,  replaced  by  the  moon  for  the  people  to  suffer.  Skin  grew  paler,  death  came  quicker

My  wolf  and  I  missed  those  of  our  kind,  for  the  companionship  only  a  wolf  could  provide,  for  the  ties  of  a  family  bond,  for  the  purpose  of  a  pack.

It  was  at  such  a  time  as  this  when  I  was  at  my  nose-to-the-floor  weakest,  when  an  angel  appeared  from  the  sky.

Giveaways:

Heather  Hildenbrand  is  offering  4  signed  paperback  copies  of  her  Dirty  Blood  series  &  a  LIVE  Q&A  on  5th Nov!  Enter  here.

Bethany  Lopez  is  offering  an  eBook  of  the  Stories  About  Melissa  books  1-4  collection.  Enter  here.
