    Tormented

    Please note I have reduced down the following scene from the way it actually appears in the book. Again, it is still subject to change. I stand in the doorway of my former bedroom. Charlie is at my old dresser, looking at the few photos I keep on there. One is of me and Sam when we were just kids. Kids who didn’t know anything about pain. We were completely innocent and carefree. We would eventually learn the hard way. With a little smile, she then picks up the next picture. It was taken when I had been admitted to hospital. Sam had her arm slung around me. The picture…

    Teaser time!

    So, as promised, below is a short snippet from book 2. Please note this is subject to change. I will be putting book 2 up for pre-order on Amazon in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out for it, but until then: The DJ changes the song and the upbeat tempo seems to have everyone gravitating towards the dance floor. I look down at my heels, wondering if I should just kick them off and have done with it. I feel his eyes on me and I look up. “That reminds me…” With one hand on his hip, he looks me up and down. Appraising my appearance silently, he…

    Teasers

    Hi all, So, since I am being extremely cruel and making you wait for book 2, over the coming weeks I will be uploading some teasers. To kick off, here is the cover that I am probably going to use. As evident from the partial open door on book 1, I’m quite fond of symbolism. Please note this is subject to change, hence why I have put no title in, although I am still liking the F’s! Please feel free to drop me a line to let me know what you think!

    Fractured 2

    Hi all, Firstly, I have a few new fans – thanks for emailing me with your thoughts on Fractured. I love that the book is gaining an audience and people are embracing it. Secondly, the reoccurring subject is book 2 – so here goes: I have finally decided upon a title of Flawed – I’m quite liking the ‘F’ words (not the naughty ones) for uniformity! Upon looking at it this morning, I am currently up to circa 35 chapters (these are slightly shorter than Fractured, but the word count is roughly the same at 120K). Three of the chapters actually need to be written (or finished to be more accurate) and the rest needs to be…

    The significance of reviews

    There is much debate on many of the author forums with regard to this subject, and whether or not there is any significance in reader reviews. As you may, or may not know, anyone that contacts me, I generally ask them to leave a review on Amazon and Goodreads (provided they have an account with the site). The only reason I ask this, is that it helps potential new readers gain insight into another’s unique reading experience, and thus assists in gaining a new author exposure. Regardless of what many may say, reviews do generate a new audience and a following, and they also determine whether or not someone will…

    Fractured 2

    Hi everyone, Firstly, many thanks to all who have emailed me and shown an interest in ‘Fractured’. Your thoughts and comments are very much appreciated and very overwhelming. Also, to anyone who has emailed me or contacted me on FB, and if I haven’t responded, please do not take this personally. I work a normal Monday to Friday 9 to 5 and don’t always check. Secondly, an update regarding book two. Unfortunately, I am unable to give specific dates as I feel that, as a reader myself, when I read a book is going to be out and isn’t, it’s false hope and the author loses credibility. There are a few factors that…
