If I Let You Go ARC Winners and a Meme

This week flew by!

I've been busy, busy, busy getting organised for all these book releases! I should have things under more control next week, but I also might take next week away from blogging to recharge again. After that, I will be back to normal again - or as normal as I ever get! :p

Thanks to all of you who have helped with the If I Let You Go cover reveal and signed up to the bloghop! Signups will be open until the bloghop starts so there's still time! Details are here.

In my last post I offered 5 ARCs to those of you who commented! I did a random draw, and the winners are:


I will be in touch very soon!

Now, I was also tagged by Trisha in the Lucky 7 Meme today! I have done it before, but with Game On. I was going to do with my novella but ... it doesn't have 77 pages! So, I will share a glimpse into Blindsided instead!

Here are the details:

The Rules:

  1. Go to page 77 of your current MS/WIP.
  2. Go to line 7.
  3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written. No cheating.
  4. Tag 7 authors.
  5. Let them know.
 Please note, this is quite close to the end of the story, and comes from Jesse Shaw's POV :)

“Okay,” I laughed. “What shall we do instead?”
“Well, I was thinking that, as Dad’s at work, Mum’s shopping again, Hunter’s out with Willow and Georgia is taking a nap, we should do something we’ve never done before.”
Her eyes sparkled playfully, and her lips curved into the kind of grin that made my heart hammer in my chest. For a second, I was transported back to Mischa’s party, when we danced together. That was the last time she’d looked at me that way.
“Oh really?” I asked. “What did you have in mind?”

I would usually tag, but a lot of people have done this already so, if you want to do it go ahead!

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I totally missed the boat on this... Dang it!! Way to go the rest of you!!!

  4. Congratulations to the winners! Don't let everything stress you out, Kyra.

  5. Yay! I can't wait to read it! :) Thank you so much. That was a great snippet. What a tease!

    When's your birthday next month? Libras are the best. Hehehe!

  6. If you need to take some time to recharge, do it. Don't burn yourself out. We'll all be here when you get back :)

    Congrats to all the winners!

  7. Woohoo! Thank you so much! I can't wait to read it!

  8. Kyra, I'm sorry - I forgot to post your cover this week. I will do it on Monday.

  9. I think you deserve a break Kyra you've been so busy. Seen your reveal around the blogosphere this week and it looks awesome!

  10. I hope you have a wonderful break! Thanks for sharing the Lucky 7 Meme!!

  11. Great snippet - something they've never done before? She wants to play the Deal or No Deal board games, doesn't she?

  12. I wish I would have been around more frequently for the ARC drawing :( Now I'm all sorts of jealous :)

    I seriously need wifi again, I've been missing out on so much in the blog-o-sphere.

  13. Congrats to the winners.

    I love the cover and it's been great seeing it everywhere. I signed up for your blogfest.

  14. Congrats to the winners! I enjoyed the Lucky 7 snippet. ;)

  15. Yay for the snippet :D I know what you mean about stuff that doesn't have 77 pages ;) I also found myself sometimes on ends of chapters that had less than 7 lines to choose from ;) So it took a while to find an appropriate snippet for my post.

    So excited that I won the ARC, gonna read it ASAP!

IWSG: Performance anxiety

Welcome to the August edition of IWSG, hosted by the amazing Alex J.Cavanaugh ! So, as most of you know by now - because I haven't shut up about it LOL - my first novel, Game On, has been released. The blog tour officially starts next week (YAY!) but I find myself becoming increasingly nervous. A blog tour not only highlights my book, but me. What if people don't like me? What if my guest posts suck, and everyone thinks I'm boring? If I can't engage people in 300 words on a blog, they probably aren't going to pick up my book. And then there's the "what happens next" question. I plan to make Game On into a series, which feels a bit arrogant of me. I don't know how many people are going to like the first book, should I really be planning to keep the series going? So far, Game On has actually been incredibly well received. I've had great reviews, so maybe I shouldn't worry about people not liking it, but what if Book Two isn't as goo

IWSG: Books Sales

IWSG time! I'd like to start by thanking Alex J. Cavanaugh for this fab bloghop, and today in particular, it is just the motivation I need to get me blogging again! Today, I'm talking book sales. Now, I don't really know if there is any kind of "average" amount of books sales when you're an indie author. I don't know what is considered a good amount of book sales per month, or whether I am doing better or worse than others. What I do know, is that I am happy with the amount of books I've sold. I self-published because I want people to read my work - and people are reading it - yay! My concern is - what if the sales stop? I know after a time, everyone's book sales will slow down, but I have this fear that I'll check my sales every couple of weeks to find that nobody cares about reading my books anymore.The dreaded 0 will show on my Kindle sales, and I will plummet into a pit of despair. It hasn't happened yet, but Game On has onl

First Fight/First Kiss Blogfest

Yay, it's blogfest time! Many thanks to Danielle and Jackie for hosting! Here are the details: Share your 1 st FIGHT and 1 st KISS scenes in your MS’s or WIP’s. Crack open your current project or dive back into an old one. We want to feel what your characters feel. From the sting of their first fist-to-the-face to the tingling taste of their first kiss. Today is First Fight day, and I wanted to bring you a small excerpt from my NaNo novel which centres around Jesse Shaw, one of the characters from Game On. It's a bit rough, and a bit vague - mainly because I wrote it quickly, Jesse's voice still needs work, and this fight in full would be packed with spoilers, but hopefully it gives enough info to make sense!   Just to clear up a small thing - Georgia is Isabelle's twin sister. :)   ** “Izzy,” I said. “You know the right thing to do.” Isabelle looked down at me with those big brown eyes, and my insides twisted with guilt. Right away, I realised
