New book news again!

Well, then! Almost 600,000 words for the year and I have finally finished the first draft of a new book among all the fragments! It’s taken me almost 12 months for this one, about four re-starts, a bunch of umm’s and ahh’s, a whole lot of emotional energy, and some literal tears. But, it is done! I have a new 86,000-or-so word YA draft for the Trouble with Hate is…

TWH full cover 5.06x7.81 FUR4

Leilani Granger can’t stand the person Casper Drake has become, and Casper doesn’t even recognise his best mate’s little sister anymore. Loving each other is second-nature, but they don’t know how not to hate each other either.

But, after one night of a deeper connection than either of them were ready for, the lines between the emotional and the physical start to blur.

Leilani wasn’t the kind to lose herself in meaningless sex.

Casper’s been doing it for years.

It’s the only time hate doesn’t get in the way.

But, the trouble with hate is…it’s often not hate at all.

It’s off with the first lot of beta readers. So, now, here comes the editing phase!

BTW, if you’re interested in becoming a beta reader, feel free to get in touch or shoot me an email! The more the merrier 🙂

Cover reveal!

A new and improved – dare I say, revamped? – unvamped is being released by Sleeping Dragon Books with a lovely new cover!

First published in 2015, my debut novel unvamped is a YA Paranormal Romance told from three POVs:

unvamped front coverWould you accept yourself to find your humanity?

Ellie Cooper comes from a long line of witches, but wishes she could be normal. When she nearly kills herself cursing a vampire, her dislike of her heritage deepens. Will she find a way to accept her magic, or will she forsake her family altogether?

After feeding on a witch, 693-year-old vampire Charles Dumphrey wakes up to find he is living a human teenage life, complete with parents, school and girls. Can he adjust to his new life as a human, or will he find a way to break the curse Ellie puts on him?

Lee is a werewolf who is not yet shifting regularly. He worries about who he will be when he regulates. Will the wolf take over, or can Lee find the balance between his humanity and the wolf?

Will all three of them be able to overcome their uncertainties and accept themselves in order to save Ellie’s life?

I’m currently working on book two, doggone, which will focus a little more on Lee, as well as a return of someone from Charles’ past who is intent on causing some trouble:

Wolf out. Bite down. Go wild.

Still dealing with the repercussions of her trauma and what it means for her powers, Ellie finds a safe place at uni to practice and learn. Druidry gives her an outlet and a sympathetic group of new friends.

Finally regulated, Lee is learning how to live in his own skin. But, the call of the moon is strong and Lee has trouble resisting. Matters aren’t helped when a human comes into his life. But, Lee’s wolf isn’t the only thing she unleashes.

Between keeping Lee in check on a full moon, issues with Ellie, and someone killing his descendants, Charles’ return to university life is less than ideal. He’s constantly saving everyone else, but who’ll save him?

Wild sides are revealed as our trio realise that it’s one thing to accept yourself and another entirely to control yourself. Especially when you don’t want to.

Book three, dewitch, will focus a little more on Ellie, bring all strands of the narrative to a close and hopefully see our trio older, wiser and happier.

So, keep an eye out for the release date news, as well as new book news 🙂

Keep reading everyone!
