Save Her Soul – Preorders Are Live

My new novel, Save Her Soul, is now live for pre-orders at the special price of just $0.99. This is a paranormal/urban fantasy romance and it releases on the 1st of August.

My beta readers loved it and already has a couple of early reviews on both the US and UK Amazon sites, as well as on Goodreads.

This book revolves around two main characters, Kate and Drake. Kate’s sister has been murdered and her goal is life is to get revenge on the people who committed this heinous act. She vows to get her revenge, but she doesn’t realise the consequences it will have. Drake has been dead for 500 years and has been tasked with the mission of saving Kate’s soul. He has other plans though. I’ve included the full blurb below and can’t wait for everyone to read it. I had so much fun writing this novel and my characters really surprised me. I think what I enjoyed most was Kate’s stubbornness and her belief in what she was doing. She remained true to her character throughout and the ending really surprised me. I won’t spoil it for you, but let me just say, I wasn’t expecting her to do what she did.

Finding Forever Nominated for a 2017 Summer Indie Book Award

My debut novella, Finding Forever, has been nominated for a 2017 Summer Indie Book Award. I still can’t believe it and I have no idea how this happened. I received a message on Facebook to say that my book was nominated. I am so grateful to everyone who felt my romantic suspense deserved this honour. Voting begins in a month or so and once I have more details I will be sure to let everyone know.

For now, I am just going to enjoy the warm fuzzy feeling, take a deep breath, and keep writing.
