Mosaic, the exciting conclusion to The Dragonfly series, coming June 30, 2014!
The future never goes as planned. People are never what they seem. Time changes everything.

So you want to know what happened to Anna and Julian? Well, listen up, because I’ve got the whole scoop. I’m Jules, btw, and I am an artist, as you already know if you’ve read Watercolor. What you might not know is I inherited my mother’s cute little newsy nose, thank you very much.

It’s high school reunion time, and everyone’s coming back to Fairview—everyone who’s not already there, mind you. What went wrong, who’s fault it was, and why the heck nobody knew about me… it’s all coming out.

Long-distance relationships rarely last, and a lot of water has passed under that bridge. Big Secrets will be exposed, and in the end we’ll know if that old saying is true: Love is stronger than time.

Big news! And some other stuff!






Those of you who didn't see my announcement on Facebook yesterday might be looking at this with a little confusion, since this is NOT the original cover for my novella, If I Let You Go - BUT it's okay. I had to change the cover because If I Let You Go is soon to be released as an audiobook!!!!

The recording is complete, my narrator, Keely Beresford is fabulous, and all I'm waiting for now is for the audiobook to hit the stores!

You may remember I started a Kickstarter project for the recording of Game On as an audiobook. I genuinely nearly fell off my chair when I got an audition through for If I Let You Go just after I launched the Kickstarter project for Game On.Needless to say, the Kickstarter project didn't work out - but thanks to all of you who donated! I am still going to need money to make a Game On audiobook happen - it's too big a job to expect someone to do it for a royalty share, but until then, I am thrilled that IILYG will be available on audio soon!


I've been pretty quiet lately due to the usual being busy and stuff, but this week I NEED to get cracking on my blog tour posts! It's coming around fast and I am not quite ready yet. Some posts have been written, and I hope to get the rest done through the week, so if you're expecting something from me, it will be on its way very soon.

The cat anthology is still going ahead, and as soon as I have my blog tour posts ready, I will be able to put my focus back on that - I can only do one thing at a time at the moment lol the heat is melting my brain!

Hope everything is good with all of you, and you're enjoying this amazing weather!

Cover Reveal: Effigy by M.J. Fifield

 Those of you who know M.J. Fifield will know this book has been a while in the making, but I bet, just like me, you are super excited about its release! Today, I'm here for M.J's cover reveal so - here we go!! 





Effigy Blurb:

The survival of a once-mighty kingdom rests in the hands of its young queen, Haleine Coileáin, as it slowly succumbs to an ancient evil fueled by her husband’s cruelty.

A sadistic man with a talent for torture and a taste for murder, he is determined to burn the land and all souls within. Haleine is determined to save her kingdom and, after a chance encounter, joins forces with the leader of the people’s rebellion. She gives him her support, soon followed by her heart.

Loving him is inadvertent but becomes as natural and necessary as breathing. She lies and steals on his behalf, doing anything she can to further their cause. She compromises beliefs held all her life, for what life will exist if evil prevails?

Her journey leads to a deceiving world of magic, monsters, and gods she never believed existed outside of myth. The deeper she goes, the more her soul is stripped away, but she continues on, desperate to see her quest complete. If she can bring her husband to ruin and save her people, any sacrifice is worth the price—even if it means her life.


Release date: July 22, 2014

About The Author:

More Cat Talk!

Hey guys!

So, last week I posted about the possibility of creating an anthology to raise money for my local branch of Cats Protection. I think there has been enough interest to go ahead with it so I am going to add a sign up list at the bottom of this post for those who want to be involved.

Deciding what kind of things to put in the book is a challenge, because the majority of us don't usually write about cats lol. However, I think it might work if we stick to some simple rules:

The story MUST have a cat in it (obviously :p )

You can write a story within your usual genre - even if it's a sci-fi cat, or a paranormal cat, or a love story that has a cat in it

You can write a poem if you prefer

I won't be putting an official word count limit on this, because I don't know how many entries we'll have - I suspect it won't be huge amounts  - but obviously, novel length fiction is no good. Let's call it an absolute maximum of 10,000 words, but I will have a better idea about this when I find out how many people want to take part.

When I have the final number of people who want to be involved, I will post further information, but as a rough guideline, I plan to gather the entries in the next 8-10 weeks.

Thank you so much for your help with this!

Release Day Fun with Annalisa Crawford

Annalisa Crawford is here to celebrate the release of her new book, Our Beautiful Child!

For no reason whatsoever, Annalisa thought it would be fun to answer some of the questions that Jackie magazine asked the stars of the day (the example she's found is from 1984 – and the victim was Johnny Marr from The Smiths). She will be answering one question on each of the random blogs taking part!

Question: If you could be a character in any TV soap, who would you choose?

Annalisa's answer: I haven’t watched soaps for years, so I’m going to have to say Charlene from Neighbours, because she’s the only character I can remember!

And my answer:

Hmm, right now I think I'd quite like to be just about any character in Hollyoaks, so I can hang out with talented and gorgeous guys such as Danny Mac, Greg Wood and Ayden Callaghan!



Our Beautiful Child is available right now!  

“The Boathouse collects misfits. Strange solitary creatures that yearn for contact with the outside world, but not too much. They sit, glass in hand, either staring at the table in front of them, or at some distant point on the horizon.” 

… so says the narrator of Our Beautiful Child. And he’s been around long enough to know.

People end up in this town almost by accident. Ella is running away from her nightmares, Sally is running away from the memories of previous boyfriends and Rona is running away from university. Each of them seek sanctuary in the 18th century pub, The Boathouse; but in fact, that’s where their troubles begin.

Ella finds love, a moment too late; Rona discovers a beautiful ability which needs refining before she gets hurt; and Sally meets the captivating Murray, who threatens to ruin everything.

Three women. Three stories. One pub.

Who loves cats?

My next couple of posts are cover reveals and book launches, so I thought I should check in with you guys to let you know why I've been so quiet!

As usual - work. I probably don't even need to explain that at this point!

But also, I have been doing some charity work for Cats Protection, and I LOVE it. I love cats, and I love the charity, and I love the volunteers. It's just really, really nice to do something different.

I know there are a ton of cat lovers here in the blogosphere but I was wondering if any of you would be interested in helping me put together a cat anthology to help raise money for my local branch. Nothing is settled, and I realise this is quite an unusual ask, but it's a fun way to raise money AND it's a way for you to reach an audience you might not have reached before - as I will add author bios and website/blog links so if people like what you do, they can look you up.

I was thinking maybe cat poetry, short stories about cats, short stories that just have a cat in them, or maybe even some funny stories about your own cats.

This is the link to our branch website - take a look around, and let me know if you think this is something you'd be interested in! :D
