Blind Faith is back!

Blind Faith is back!!

I have amazing new covers and banners for Blind Faith, made the ever so lovely and talented Sara York. 

Isn't it just beautiful?  Words can't describe how grateful I am to Sara for her hard work and understanding. This is the Isaac I used as a picspiration from the very beginning, and to now have him on the cover is just amazing!  

The book is now available again for sale!!  Yay!  So I'm not an un-published, published author any more!! 

At Smashwords  Buy Here!!

At Amazon Buy Here!!

I'll have it up at other sites over the weekend, and fingers crossed I'll have the sequel up sooner than expected, but no later than March 15th.

I have re-released this book at a reduced rate of $3.99, which is a fair price for a 48,000 word book. The sequel, Through These Eyes is 69,000 words and will hit the shelf at $5.99.

A very big thank you, to everyone who has supported me and showed patience and kindness during what has been a fairly stressful time.

Hugs to you all.

Publishing News and Other Stuff

Okay, so I have some news...

First of all, I'd seriously like to thank every single person who has bought and read, loved or hated my books. 

I've met some amazing people, both readers and authors alike, who for all the little words of encouragement, thanks and love, have reminded me why I do this.

I'm new to this publishing game, and when I was first published it was a real dream come true. But, all love of writing aside, it's a serious business. I've learned some incredibly difficult lessons, and I've learned a lot about myself. 

Two weeks ago, I was ready to quit. Seriously. I never wanted to bother again. It was too hard, too heartbreaking, too much. 

Then, like the universe knew, I got a run of emails from readers who simply just wanted to thank me for writing. 

I can't begin to tell you how much that meant. 

And that is why I didn't quit. (Well, that, and the voices in my head probably wouldn't have let me...)

So please, take this as a very heart-felt thank you. I am really, very grateful.

Now onto the news part...

In the next few days, Blind Faith will be unavailable for purchase. 

So yes, that means I will go from having four books published and two coming-soon titles, to having none available. At all.  

I know, believe me, I know. I've mentioned heartbreak and stress, yes?

But, the good news is I will be re-releasing Blind Faith as a self-published title and then the sequel, Through These Eyes shortly after. (For those who know me, know technology and I have a mutual dislike for each other, so this is kind of daunting for me...)

Anyway, I'm hoping to have Through These Eyes published before it was due to come out on March 30th. I'll be aiming for mid-to-late March, so please, watch this space for news. :)

In other news, my Thomas Elkin series has been accepted at Total-E-Bound!!!!

I don't have a release date yet (maybe September-ish?) but it will be a three-part series. I'm working on some pre-edits for the first installment, Perfect Retrofit, right now. 

But this is much anticipated, much needed good news!!

No word yet on my other titles.  But at any rate, I'd be surprised if they'll be re-released this year. :(  I really wanted Matt & Kira's second story out this year, but that's in the hands of the powers that be.  I might even try and get something else self-published so I'm not bookless for most of this year. 

Okay that's all my news for now. 

Thanks to everyone who has stuck with me. I hope to have more news soon.

Publishing update


Unfortunately, I'm still none the wiser about when my stories will be available again. At this point, it looks like there will be quite a wait :(

I've sent them all off to one particular publisher and still haven't heard. I'm hoping they'll love me and take all of them... *crosses fingers and wishes really hard*

So, for the record, the titles I'm waiting to hear about are:

* Taxes and TARDIS
* Point of No Return
* Three's Company
* Breaking Point (have to wait to see if they want PoNR 1 first)
* The Thomas Elkin Series (three-part novella series)

Technically it's seven titles, so believe me, I'm checking my inbox ALL the time... 

I'm trying to stay positive, and keeping up with the writing, but to be honest, it's disheartening.  To have books released is such a high, and to have them taken down is just as equally depressing, not to mention stressful. 

But in all that, I have created Tom and Cooper and I adore them. As in, seriously LOVE them.  I'm about one third through the third and final novella, Sense of Place, and I can't wait to see them published.  

Also, I'd like to thank everyone for the love and support for Blind Faith!  I've done the first-round edits on the sequel, Through These Eyes, and I've changed the ending. It now opens up an avenue for Mark to have a short story of his own. :)  No promises, and seriously NO clue when it can be written, but the idea is there. 

Finally, I'd like to thank everyone for the emails and pm's asking where they can get my books. Hopefully I will have good news soon!!
