2015 Update

Image
First update for the year! Although this might place the date as 31st of Dec. In Australia it’s the first and I spent my NYE reading and eating pizza. It was perfect.

My next update will be roughly in a week which will include the cover reveal for Revolution. So I thought I could use this one to post my best reads for 2015. 
Bound Series by Cynthia Eden

A series of short paranormal reads that I breezed through. I love how Eden writes and the worlds she manages to create. A special mention to Hotter After Midnightwhich I loved, Once Bitten, Twice Burned, and I read and loved Marked By The Vampire and Charming The Beastwhich were fantastic also. I can’t wait to continue on with both of those series.

Talking Dirty With The Boss by Jackie Ashenden


I picked this book up on a whim and fell completely in love. I love Ashenden’s writing. I loved this group of people she created and even though I read it completely out of order (book 3 first, then I went back and read Talking Dirty With The CEO, th…

November Update

Image
This year has gone so fast! November was a bit of a mixed bag for me. I’ll start with the good news. I finished my standalone book! I went a little writing mad and wrote close to 50,000 words on it to make this draft finish at around 90,000 words. Not a bad size. This is a New Adult Dystopian Romance. I have a cover almost ready and that reveal will happen early January. It is called Revolution and I am hoping for a release towards the end of January. So I’ll have more news to share on that next month.
I also lost my Nanna on November 24th. I was very close with her and I am devastated. She loved reading and for much of my life I always remember her with a book by her side. She loved to read romance. She took a bad turn last year and that got me thinking about death and that is where the idea for Haunted Love came from. Even though it wasn’t a complete surprise, I still feel shocked that she is really gone. So a sad end for November.
I didn’t read as much this month either. I was too bu…

October Update

Image
And we’re already into November! This year is just zooming by. I had a slightly more successful month for my writing. I managed to finish the first draft of the second book in my new sci-fi series. I like to have the entire story finished in at least draft form before I begin the process of covers for any or worrying about getting my editors on board. I have never, and don’t think I will ever, release a series without having it complete first. I have a horrible fear of starting something I can’t finish and letting people down. So I am now halfway through that series in terms of first drafts. Unfortunately there will be many more drafts to come.

I also managed some great reading this month. A friend is obsessed with Kresley Cole and I mentioned I hadn’t read anything by her. So I was then given every Cole paperback in one hit. So that was overwhelming, but I am absolutely in love with the IAD series. This world she has created is amazing. Anyway, here are some books I loved this mont…

September

Wow! When did it get to be October?
So I thought I would try to update this site at least once a month, which will probably turn into a what I read this month update with a little piece occasionally about what I’m up to with my writing.
So here it is: some books I enjoyed in the month of September!
Alpha’s Darkling Bride – Linda Barlow (Shifter Romance)

Amazon US

Handcuffed To The Bear – Lauren Esker (Shifter Romance)

Amazon US
A Demon and His Witch – Eve Langlais (Paranormal Romance)

Amazon US
Wrong Number, Right Guy – Elle Casey (Romantic Comedy)


Amazon US
Nightbloom – Juliette Cross (Paranormal Romance)

Amazon US
Marked – Kaylea Cross (Romantic Suspense)

Amazon US
Hotter After Midnight – Cynthia Eden (Paranormal Romance)

Amazon US
Sheriff Bear – Zoe Chant (Shifter Romance)

Amazon US

I’m hoping October brings forth some motivation for writing, but my endless TBR list might tempt me once more this month and I’ll find myself distracted. Hoping I can fit in both!
Have a great October!

Welcome to my page!

Hello all!
So this is my attempt at starting a website. I am not that great when it comes to computers so for the moment this is as good as I am going to be able to do. I will try to keep it up-to-date as much as I can with important information and all things reading and writing.
Thank you for checking in!
