Paperbacks R US

So here I am again, moaning about my house sale... trust me, just don't do it! So today we are in the middle of negotiating on a really low offer which we don't want to take and consequently I cannot for the life of me concentrate on WitchHunt and get writing!

Instead I decided to do something useful with my time so I don't feel so impotent! I might not have done any writing, but I have managed to get one big job done. I have FINALLY reformatted & uploaded WitchLove to Createspace to begin the process of creating the paperbacks! It has more pages than the last two, I'm not sure why because I don't think the font is bigger, but consequently the costs are stupidly high. So as always it's still much, much cheaper to buy the ebooks, and I get a little more profit on them too! It seems ridiculous when I have to price my book at £7.99 that I am actually making less than £1 on each book! So I'm not being greedy honest :)

WitchHunt Teaser...

So as I've just had a ton of fun writing chapter six, I thought I'd give you a little snippet... A taste of things to come! But I'm not going to tell you who Jess is fighting... for that you'll have to wait!

The force of the collision sent us both flying backwards across the lawn, me still gripping the end of my makeshift stake as she came down hard on top of me. She desperately tried to lever herself away from me and the three foot branch, but it was no good. She stared down at the wood in her chest, her mouth agape, but when her eyes did not dull, and her fangs did not retract I realised I'd missed her heart.

‘Missed,’ she hissed at me, spitting out blood and smiling as she finally managed to pull herself upright staggering back slightly, the branch which I’d released still embedded in her abdomen, which was already healing as she tugged it out.

Buffy: The best stake wielding vampire slayer!

Hope that whetted your appetite? I better go start write chapter seven!

Exciting News For Witchblood Fans

Hi everyone, so yesterday I had some really exciting news! I had a formal invitation to not only attend the 2 day Isle of Wight Literary Festival in October but run a 'spooky' youth event in the cellars of Northwood House, which will be decorated to reflect the Witchblood Trilogy! I will be doing an hour long event on the Sunday, doing readings from my books and then hold a Q&A session for the audience!

There will be posters, bookmarks and loads of swag and I'm hoping to do signed copies of the paperbacks for anyone that wants them.

The event sounds fantastic for any Brits who love reading and writing as there are loads of famous authors, agents and actors there. The kiddy events sound brilliant too with not only the YA stuff, but a cafĂ© themed as a Mad Hatters Tea Party and special young kiddy story sessions.

Here is the link for the website and Facebook page and my info should go up on the site with the next band of speakers, after the summer hols. I'll post more info as I get it so keep a look out & I hope to see you there!

Here are the links, please share and download, I want to get in the Top 10 :D

Jess's Diary

November 6th
So here I am, I thought it might be interesting to keep a diary after the last years events... My name is Jessie James, like the cowboy. My dad just loved cowboy movies, that's how I got my name! A year ago I was a fairly normal 17 year old human girl, totally oblivious to the frankly bizarre events that lay ahead of me.

So now, a year older... OK so officially I might have stopped ageing, but I'm keeping note and no-one I know of would dare try to tell me I'm still seventeen, especially with the arsenal of supernatural weaponry I now have available... Anyway I digress... Here I am! I'm through the worst of it. So OK my parents are both dead, but then so am I... kind of.

My best friend Alex, is also dead, properly dead and buried, like my parents; but I still have everyone else. I have my friends Brittany, Luke who I thought was a boy but turns out is actually a human born angel, and even Eva. I was so pissed at Eva, but at the same time soooo relieved. And after last month's zombie butt-kicking war of the most extreme I have forgiven Daniel. My gorgeous, super hot vampire boyfriend... yeah, after all you can't hold grudges forever can you, and I think we're made for each other... blugh I know! But still, he did make me. He chose me, saved me, turned me.

And on top of my sometimes overly protective vampire clan back in Manchester, I have my new found American family. My Aunt Sarah, her daughters, Noah her son and their super witchy coven. So I might be an odd half-breed, half vampire, half witch but things are finally looking up! I love this sticker, I found it in Salem last week... now I just need a vampire one!

Who Wants a Summer Freebie?

I have decided to giveaway Genevieve. It will be FREE over the summer! Genevieve is the short story about a side character, Eva from my Witchblood series; and tells the story of how she became a vampire. It is set in the French Revolution and has some romance & violence as you would expect with vampires and the French revolution! PG13!

In return all I ask is if you like it, please, please leave me a review on Amazon or B&N, add the tags, click the LIKE button... spread the word! Oh and you might want to try reading the rest of the series :)

As a side note, I have recently joined Pinterest and started some boards for all things vampy! Check me out!  https://pinterest.com/emmamwriter/

As authors we are unable to drop our prices on Amazon under the 99c threshold so the only way I can do it, is to get B&N to drop their prices first and then we can report it to Amazon who will hopefully price match! Last time took a couple of weeks so if you click the link and it is still 99c hang on and check back another day. I will post an update when I know Amazon have changed the price.
