Summer Demons - It's Here!

Summer Demons is released today! *Jumps around the room excitedly* 

To celebrate, I am running a giveaway for 3 Amazon gift cards (the rafflecopter is at the bottom of this post) but first here's a bit of information and an excerpt from the book. 



Summer Demons

Genre: YA Romance
Release Date: 26th February 2014
Length: Novella

Blurb:
Jenna Shaw ran away to escape her past. In fact, she jumped on a plane and flew to Portugal to try and forget it. However, it turns out leaving everything behind isn’t as easy as it sounds.

She thought she could move on and break free of her fears—that if she had some space the pain would stop. But as memories resurface due to an ill-timed joke, the past crashes into her present once more and she didn’t see it coming.

Jenna’s plans for normality are derailed by the charismatic Ethan Brooks. She sees him as an annoyance; he sees her as a challenge. But as he tries every trick known to him to impress her, they only serve to push her further away. He’s never faced this problem before and Ethan has to work harder than he ever has if he wants to win over and help his mysterious girl.

Excerpt

She saw red. Seeping into the crystal clear water it spread, bleeding and merging as the ripples around her pushed it closer towards her feet. The deep crimson only grew darker as it surrounded her.
She could feel her breathing quicken, coming in short, sharp rasps as she started to panic. Her chest constricted, an unbearable pressure tightening like a boa constrictor refusing to release her from its clutches. Her throat felt dry, her increased breathing doing nothing to help the situation as she forced herself to swallow in the hope of dislodging the lump that had formed there.
This isn’t happening. This isn’t real. I came here to escape this, she told herself repeatedly as she laid there, her turquoise bikini embellished with golden sequins shining in the sun as her back tanned slowly. Bringing up an arm to adjust her chestnut-brown hair that was dangling in the water, she tried to pull away before the colour reached her and tainted the beautiful locks. The damage done would be irreparable if it touched her.
Moving it just in time, she threw it over her shoulder so it rested between her shoulder blades, the damp tips feeling nice as they cooled her back by trailing droplets of water down either side. She tried not to flinch as her gaze returned to the bloodied water that lapped at the li-lo beneath her chin. With every wave it seemed to grow closer, making its way further up the yellow plastic to try and touch her. The tapping that was normally so soothing tormented her now, like a crowd clapping and cheering her sanity on as it fled for safety.
Rather than listen to the logical side of her brain, her body had other ideas. Shuffling back, she put a bigger distance between her face and the abnormal pool beneath her. As her toes dipped into the cool water behind her though, she flinched, automatically drawing herself up so that no part of her body was near the edge. No matter how disgusted she was, she couldn’t stop staring; her eyes were hypnotised by the gentle movements that swirled the colour into the water even more. The red had become so thick that not one tile beneath the surface was visible.
The more she stared, the more she remembered.
The more she remembered, the more she was pulled into her memory.
It might not have been real at that moment in time, but it had been, and Jenna was once again pulled into the unbearable memory.

I've Finally Done It

Finally I am back to writing! I've spent the last few weeks reading and re-reading through Summer Demons to make sure it's perfect, but today I typed the first few words of a new book.

Want to know what I'm writing this minute?


Yes, I've finally started Elemental Killers 4! 

This book has been one of the reasons I have been reading Summer Demons so many time. I just haven't wanted to say goodbye to Serena and Kai. However, I was lying in bed last night and an idea for another stand-alone came to me. It's one I've been thinking about for a while and all of the pieces finally came together with a light-bulb moment last night (yes, I now have a smile on my face as I can't help imagining Gru from Despicable Me saying that). 

So... because I'm dying to write that book, I have to start Elemental Killers 4 as I'm not allowing myself to touch another book until the first draft is complete. Don't get me wrong though, I'm not putting it off because I don't know how to end it or don't have the ideas to create a four book series; it's purely the personal reason that I love my characters and don't want this series to end. I am really looking forwards to writing this book as I've planned it all out but it will probably break my heart once it's finished, if not before.

All I hope is that I give Kai and Serena the best ending possible and you guys love it as much as I do.

Anyway, on a different note. Because there is only 9 days left until the release of Summer Demons, here is a teaser.


Happy reading!

Cover Reveal ~ Summer Demons!

I can't wait any longer. I've had this cover finalised for about a week now and have been dying to share it with you all. If you follow me on Facebook, you will probably have seen my impatient posts as I tried my hardest not to blab. I'm not the most patient person when it comes to waiting, especially if everything is ready to go so this book is killing me.

A few of you will know this better than most because I had to get it out of my system somehow and sending it to you guys was the easiest option. Thank you for putting up with my ramblings and for all your opinions on the cover and blurbs (the many versions of it), I appreciate them all!

Anyway, I'll shut up now and just reveal the cover like I've been wanting to do for weeks. I think it's my favourite out of every book I've ever released and am planning to release (yes I have more covers already made up for future books).

I hope you like it and feel free to share!

Free Books But I Need Your Help

Hi everyone,

I have a special announcement about Summer Demons that I'm excited to share with you all!

All the dates are set and the release is going to go like this:

12th Feb (this Wednesday) ~ Cover Reveal
26th Feb - Publication
1st & 2nd March - FREE DAY!

Yes, I have said before that I want to give Summer Demons away for free so on those 2 dates it will be. However, this is the part where I need your help. I need bloggers/anyone who loves books to help me spread the word. There will be a blitz running over the 1st and 2nd but I'm equally happy if you just put a status on any of your social media.

If you would like to help me (I'd love it if you would no matter how small) fill out the form below.

I can't wait to share Summer Demons with you all!

Happy Reading

And It's Going To Be Called...

As you're probably aware, the last two weeks I have been working hard to finish my new novella. I wrote it in four days and by the time the week was up it was ready for my editor. Today I finished everything, and I mean finished! There is nothing left to do; it's edited, formatted and put to one side for when I decide to release it.

Because of this, I feel it is time to reveal a bit more information about the project as up until now, I haven't said much due to the speed everything has been happening at. So here are a few more details including, the title and blurb. 

The novella is a Contemporary Romance complete at 25,000 words. It is aimed at the upper YA market but there is no explicit or graphic sex described. I have also kept profanities to a minimum (if any). But that's probably not what you're interested in most is it?

So I'll stop rambling and reveal the title!

The novella is going to be called:
