New Release! Twisted Magic - Book Two in the Dhampyre Chronicles!

The next book in The Dhampyre Chronicles, Twisted Magic is out now! This series is a YA/NA (I haven't quite figured out which category it should fall into yet!) spin-off series of my completed 'Serenity' series, but you don't need to have read Serenity's books to get started. They'll stand on their own.

Here's a bit about the new book...



Book Two in the Dhampyre Chronicles:

After almost dying at the hands of the carnival people, Elizabeth is settling in at Sage Springs. Dealing with the difficulties of juggling college and being half-vampire doesn’t seem so bad now her new life involves sexy, Irish biker Riley.
When a girl is found murdered on the beach, Elizabeth realizes she has dreamed about the killer, and she is thrown into a whole new situation. Someone appears to be picking off her friends, one by one, and she thinks she may be next.
But there are too many things she can’t explain, from the sudden fog that appears to have taken over Sage Springs, to the thing she believes may be hidden within it.
Is a person trying to kill off the witches of Sage Springs, or is something far more sinister in play?

I hope you like it. I'm really enjoying writing about Autumn and the gang again, though of course there is plenty of conflict going on! It will be out in the middle of July, and will be up for preorder before then!

Cover Reveal - Bye-Bye Baby by Morgana Pheonix


Today I'm  helping with the cover reveal of Morgana Pheonix's latest novel, Bye-Bye Baby! It's gorgeous, isn't it, and I'm sure the story will be awesome as well! The book will be out on the 21st of January, so check it out!

Title: Bye-Bye Baby
Author: Morgana Phoenix 
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Expected Release Date: Jan 21, 2015
Hosted by: Lady Amber's Tours


Blurb:
​Love has no expiration.

The morning Beth packed her bags and walked out of Cole’s life was the day he swore the only girl for him would be the six year old who called him daddy. He didn’t have time for love, not between raising his baby girl and trying to figure out what the hell he was going to do with his life. But fate has a funny way of coming around and kicking you when you least expect it. Cole’s new life was no exception.  

As a product of a severely broken home, Beth Doan knew better than to ever get married. She’d seen what that commitment did to people and she loved Cole McClain too much to let marriage destroy them. But the minute she boards that bus she knew she was making the biggest mistake of her life. Only maybe she wasn’t, not when she goes running back home to the only man she ever loved and finds him in the arms of another woman. 

When an unexpected accident throws them together four years later, the last thing either anticipated was to become responsible for a little person who needs them a whole lot more than they need their bitterness and hurt feelings. Can Cole and Beth forgive and forget long enough to save the life of a child neither one of them predicted falling in love with?

Or are some wounds just too deep to heal?

My Wattpad Experiment

This month I find myself gloriously between books. I'm fairly regimented with my writing regime, and now that I'm having to book my editor months in advance, it means I have to stick to my writing plans come hell or high water. The good thing is with this, is that if I finish a project early, it leaves me with a little play time.

So, I'd had an idea for a story for a while now, one I'd written the title for, together with a couple of character profiles, and a brief outline, and then shelved because it wasn't one of my series books and I didn't have time to write it.

Then a couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine sent me a link to an article about Wattpad. I've been a member of Wattpad for several years now, but haven't really used it.

I tend to write my first draft in a big, old, funky mess. I write out of sequence, and I skip scenes that aren't quite working for me at the time, and I leave myself comments in places I need to do research. The result of  this is that I'm able to write a first draft fairly quickly, but when it comes to rewrites and edits, it takes me twice as long and is a real headache.

So I wanted to see if I could write something that would be decent enough for people to read along as I wrote it. I realise this is essentially still a first draft, and edits and rewrites would need to be done before actual publication, but I figured it wouldn't be anywhere near the sort of headache it normally is.
The thing I was worried about was that I would lose my momentum by having to go back through each chapter, and that my pacing would be off. I also worried (and still do) that something will need to happen in the plot line where I would normally go back and fill in the event. I guess that's the trouble with being a pantser instead of a plotter!

I'm now five chapters into my new work, 'Cut Too Deep'.  It's a romantic thriller, with a couple of twists thrown in. Here's the blurb:

Guys like Ryker Russo don't notice girls like Jenna Armstrong.
Constantly on the move, Jenna doesn't want to settle down anywhere. As long as her latest motel room has a television, wi-fi, and a vending machine, she will make do. It isn't just Jenna's curves that make her self conscious. Beneath her clothes she hides a secret, one that she is running from.

But when her car breaks down, leaving her without a mode of transport to get to the next town, mechanic Ryker seems to show an interest in her. With his muscles, tattoos, and piercings, Ryker has trouble literally written all over him. Jenna can't understand why he would want to be seen with a fat girl like her, and besides, she needs to keep moving. Time is running out and she's terrified if she stays in one place, her past will catch up to her.

I hope you'll come and read along on Wattpad. I haven't lost any of my momentum so far, and am posting around a chapter a day! It's great fun, and I'm enjoying feeling motivated and inspired by Jenna and Ryker's story. I can't wait to find out what happens!
