A New Year, A New Series!

Okay so we might be a quarter of the way into the year already, but it is a new tax year! I have taken the past three months away from writing to give myself a breather and concentrate on the house and family, and now I feel ready to start something new. It is hard leaving Jess, Daniel and the gang behind... now I have to make a new fictional family; one that you will hopefully love just as much!

Enter eighteen year old twins Bea and Will, their mum, stepfather and little sister Lucy! I'm not giving much away just yet, as it's early days, but I will say this... I am trying something new (for me!) I am writing alternate chapters in first person from Bea's POV and 3rd person from Will's. The working title at the moment is 'Smoke' and it will be set in the near future, with no vampires (sorry!).

I will try and keep the blog updated every week, so check back for more updates! Here's how I envision Bea & Will...

WitchWar Book Blog Tour 2016


So the day is nearly upon me. WitchWar, my final book in the WitchBlood series will be published in less than 24hours! Now it's up to you guys my lovely friends to help get it seen. So, to help things along I have decided to run a Rafflecopter giveaway as well, for a nice $10 Amazon voucher & a signed copy of WitchBlood... sorry it can't be more but it's still a couple of free books right? ;-)

You can enter here or go to any of the lovely blogs on my tour over the next two weeks for more entries. (Hit the Tour Schedules button above to find all the links.)

Good Luck and remember if you like WitchWar to leave me an Amazon review... it will make my day!

Happy New Year!


So I hope everyone is feeling refreshed and ready for another year? LOL I am sooo tired this morning, school run felt like torture!

I haven't made any NY Resolutions this year, although I want to have more fun and actually keep a journal for longer than a month! I have started an art journal this year, so I'll see how long I keep it going!

I also like these challenges:




Have you set yourself any challenges or resolutions for 2016? It is of course an exciting week for me as I will be publishing WitchWar, the last book in the WitchBlood series, on Friday. It seems serendipitous that it will coincide with my blog, which I started at the same time as publishing the first book, is going to pass 100,000 hits! Maybe I should set a giveaway up...

WitchWar: Available for Pre-order

I can't believe I did it! I am all finished just in time for Christmas! WitchWar has been edited, re-read, edited, read, and edited again, before finally uploading to Amazon and Smashwords. It should be available to pre-order at all your usual digital haunts.

Today I have been arranging some promotional editorials for the blog tour and designing the tour banner. What do you think? It still takes me hours on GIMP but I think I'm getting better!


I have a week of book blogs already signed up, but if you are a book blogger and would like to join the tour, please let me know and I'll send you the information.

If you are a WitchBlood fan, please pre-order WitchWar and help me hit the charts running on January 8th!

As I probably won't blog again before Christmas, I would just like to wish everyone a 'Happy Holidays'. I hope you all have a lovely time and find stockings full of books!

Final Month Countdown!

I have just been through all the edits my amazing Beta readers found; so massive thanks to Kim, Claire and Marley...  love you guys!

WitchWar has now been sent off, for its final proof read and I hope to get it out to bloggers for review, by the 14th! At the same time I will be making it available to pre-order and with some luck all is good for a publication date of the 8th January.
After my little competition last month to guess who the character is on the cover of WitchWar, I can tell you that Jane, aka Treat-Fairy-Jones is the winner for correctly guessing it was Ariel. Jane, I will be sending you a copy of WitchWar at the same time as the bloggers... an early Christmas present!

Talking about Christmas, I must dash as I have a ridiculous amount of things to do! Keep in touch on the FB page, I always enjoy messages and posts!

WitchWar Cover Reveal!!!

So this week I've been super busy. I  have done a full read through and first edit before sending it to my proof reader. I've also re-done the WitchFire... again! I just didn't like it! I have also decided to test out Amazon Select which means it has to be exclusive to Amazon for three months, but I want to test out their promo options and it will now be listed in Amazon Unlimited for you guys to borrow!

It is also time for the cover reveal of WitchWar! I am really pleased with it; I hope you like it too! Let me know what you think... and who do you think the picture is of? I will give a free copy of the book 1 week before publication to the first correct answer! Answers in comments please... or on my Facebook page.

It is Done... Let the editing commence!

I'm feeling really excited! I finished the first draft on Saturday at noon, after doing an 11.5 hour writing slog the day before and then finishing off whilst my daughter was at fencing and swimming classes yesterday morning!

I plan to do a full read through next week and then get it sent off to my lovely beta readers the week after.

What is exciting me even more is I have the cover done! I really want to post it but you're going to have to wait for the cover reveal next week!

Now the clock is ticking and I need people with blogs or social reading pages to get in contact. I need cover reveals, reviews and any promo articles you fancy!

I didn't feel happy when I finished WitchHunt. I had just moved house and was stressed and I decided it was the last one, but it never felt quite right. This time I feel great! I think WitchWar is the perfect last book. The series is going out with a BANG!
