A Wolf’s Duty Sale/ The Alpha’s witch


I’ve been furiously hitting the keys this week for my new book and it got me thinking back to the days when I was writing A Wolf’s Duty. I loved writing that book so much and have been inspired by it for this latest work and so while I’d love to present the finished copy of my new book I’m no where near that point. I have plot bunnies hopping around furiously in my head so I’m hoping I can make some serious progress this week. In the mean time I have decided to know A Wolf’s Duty down from $3.99/£1.99 to $0.99 so that lots more people can enjoy the book!

 

In the mean time here’s another excerpt from my new book provisionally titled “The Alpha’s Witch”


 

Skye bounced back, quickly falling into step with her again. “I know you think you don’t have a choice but there has to be something else. If this goes wrong…” Skye’s eyes widened in fear. “If he isn’t there…”

She didn’t finish and Madison didn’t need her to. They both knew exactly what was at stake. If Madison’s plan didn’t go off without a hitch there was a very real chance she could die. The bar was close enough now that she could hear the shouts, the raucous laughter…and the howls. Most people would think nothing of the howling, they’d blame it on dogs but Madison wasn’t most people. Both she and Skye were witches and they knew all too well that it was wolves howling…lycans.

Fear made her heart race and she clenched her sweaty palms into fists to stop them shaking. Lycans could smell fear and the scent of it made them aggressive and prone to violence. They could also smell witch and the scent of her kind made them see red. She didn’t want to know what the smell of a terrified witch would make them do. Skye had dozens of reasons to try and stop her going in to the bar but Madison’s one reason to walk head first into danger overcame her own fear. She had to go in no matter the danger she was putting herself in. A life more important than her own was at stake.

“What if he’s not in there?” Skye’s barrage continued.

“He will be. You helped me do the spell remember? He’s in there. Trust me.” Madison’s voice was calm despite her inner terror.

The seeming composure had Skye throwing her hands upwards in annoyance. “Trust me? Trusting you is what’s got me into this state. You told me to trust you when you came to me asking me to help you find this guy and look where it’s gotten us. The guy you’re looking for is most likely a lycan which means he’s going to try and kill you.”

The bar was almost in touching distance and Madison’s heart was pounding against her chest trying to escape but she forced her expression to stay serene. “He’s not going to hurt me. I’m his mate.”

Skye scoffed in derision. “His mate. Who ever heard of a witch being mated to a lycan? It’s ridiculous! It’s crazy.”

“Well then it’s right up my street. I’m an expert in insanity and madness.”

“I’m being serious.” Her shoulders slumped in defeat. Her voice was barely louder than a whisper and the words were pained. “You don’t even know what he looks like.”

“Yes, but he’ll know what I smell like. He’s going to find me. Look Skye, I know you’re scared. I am too but we’ve talked about this. There’s no other way. I have to do this. Even if he’s not there the wolves aren’t going to kill me straight away. They usually give you a chance to fuck up then they go in for the kill shot. I’ll be able to get back out. I’m not going in to die. I have things to live for.”

Aside

So I realise that I’ve basically fallen off the grid for the last few months since A Wolf’s Obsession was complete and for that I apologise. I have no real excuse except to say that I’ve been battling writer’s block but am making head way into my next book! I’m really excited about the premise and once I’ve gotten past the first 5 chapters I’m hoping to be able to tell you something concrete but as I well know things change quite frequently in the early stages of writing. For instance I’ve written three chapters already and have ideas for the next few but today I decided I didn’t like the name of one of the main characters and had to change it. That’s the sort of thing that confuses people later on so best that I get past the first unsettled chapters and once I’m into more concrete territory then I can give you an update. Thanks for being so patient with me even though I’ve been rather rubbish of late. X

Looking to the future…

One step closer!


Editing is going very well and I’m so close that I can taste it!

I am one step closer to release now that I’ve written the blurb so I thought I’d share it with you so you can let me know what you think!

 

Finding her was easy.

Most werewolves spend decades of their immortal lives searching for their mate. Wyatt had found his in years. The problem? They were both children. Forced to wait for the moment he could claim her, Wyatt had had watched her from afar, his every thought of the moment he and his mate could be together. When his mate was taken from him, his sanity went with her and he was pushed to the edge. Half feral and wracked by violent urges, he’s now more wolf than man. Walking a tightrope between sanity and madness he can’t afford to let anyone close but meeting Kass changes everything.

Getting rid of him was hard.

Kassandra has problems. A faulty heart and a mad man determined to cut it from her chest while she’s still alive. She doesn’t have time to deal with the wolf barging into her life especially when he can’t seem to decide whether he wants to strangle her or kiss her senseless. Despite all reason and logic she can’t seem to help being attracted to the mad wolf but that doesn’t mean she’s going to stick around when her problems are working hard to see her dead. It’s too bad he’s decided that she isn’t going anywhere.

Being together was inevitable.

As old and new enemies make themselves known, Wyatt and Kass find themselves drawn together. Their only chance at surviving is in the others arms but is the safety Kass finds in Wyatt’s embrace an illusion? Can she truly survive being the object of a wolf’s obsession or will his love kill her for a second time?

 

Well you’ll have to let me know what you think. In the meantime I have work to do. Wish me luck.

Wow….it’s been far too long


I have been meaning to update my blog for months and now that I have some spare time I logon and realise that I haven’t posted anything since last year and that I haven’t put up any more of a Wolf’s Obsession since October. Obviously I slapped myself hard on the wrist and am going to immediately rectify the situation. Thankfully despite the fact that I have been woefully negligent in my responsibilities on my blog it is heartening to know that I am making progress on writing the book. The word count bar along the side read at 57,000 but the word count on the doc file reads at 77,000. So 20,000 words down that’s a definite sign of progress. Enough of my rambling I’d better get posting.

I’ve been away too long!


It’s been a long time since I updated my blog….too long in fact but I’m not without a reason. As some of you might know I have been trying to buy a house and have encountered unwelcome difficulties. Things are not getting much better but there has been some progress and I have to be thankful for small victories. If everything goes to plan I’m hoping to be in my new house by the end of the month!!! And so in honour of this I’d like to celebrate with you guys by having a book sale!!

Here’s my plan. I will slash the price of one of my books every week until the day that I move into my house! On that glorious day that I finally manage to accomplish what is seemingly an impossible task I will make a book that you guys choose FREE!! It’s going to be a great month, I know it is. Now I have to go now but I’ll be back later today with an update of A Wolf’s Obsession. I haven’t managed to get great amounts of writing done but I am on the case!

So if you’d be so kind as to let me know which book should be discounted first by leaving a comment I’d be much appreciative!
