• Yanni’s Story – OUT NOW!!

    YANNI’S STORY – OUT NOW!! Blurb: When Yanni Tomaras is kicked out of his family home, his parents’ final words are religious insults and an order to never return. Homeless and desperate, he’s lured in by Lance—charming on the outside, an evil predator underneath—who abuses Yanni until he finds the courage to leave. Yanni should feel free. But by the time Spencer Cohen finds him, he’s resigned to being handed back to Lance and once again being caged by fear. Starting school and a part-time job, Yanni begins to reclaim his life. But a love for silent films leads him to Peter Hannikov, a man with a kind heart but…

  • Yanni’s Story! The whys and the warnings…

    I’ve just hit “publish” on Yanni’s Story. Amazon KU can take 30 minutes or two days to publish a book, so I figured I’d just hit publish today and hope for the best. But before you think about reading this book, you might need to know a few things… First, it’s a slow book. Why? Because healing from emotional and physical trauma is a SLOW process. For some readers it might be too slow, and that’s fine.  Please know the pacing is deliberate and how the characters needed it to be told. Anything otherwise would have been forced, or there would have been huge time-jumps in the storytelling. The fact…

  • Good Morning Monday! Weekly update and Yanni’s paperback cover :)

    Hello again! This is only going to be a super short one today. I’ve had another busy week (I seriously can’t remember when they weren’t). So a quick rundown of what I got through this week: Some (not all) proofing edits on Yanni’s Story Released some (not all) ARCs of Yanni’s Story Wrote 11K words. My WIP is now at 19K 🙂 Finalised some artwork for the new Thomas Elkin Series covers (which are amazing, by the way – and I’ll share them soon.) Started to proof the audio of Red Dirt Heart 3 and probably a bunch of stuff I can’t remember… This week coming up, I only have…

  • Good Morning Monday! Silence – that shit is golden.

    Yep, it’s Monday again. And if you’ve been reading these weekly musings from me, you’ll know Monday is my favourite day of the week! Sounds crazy, I know. But hear me out. After busy BUSY weekends of sport, usually travelling somewhere, housework, laundry for days, grocery shopping, noise, yelling at kids to pick their shit up, Monday to me means blessed silence. Si. Lence. And I tell ya, that shit is golden. LOL I love silence. When my house is quiet and still, and the coffee is hot, it’s like the best thing ever. For writing, anyway. I’ve had a busy week with work. What I got done: Worked on…

  • Good Morning Monday! What’s news?

    Seriously, it’s like I’m writing these GMM posts every second day… This post is only going to be super short. A fly-by post, really. Anywhooooo, it’s been another busy week. I swear, they all are these days. Because Yanni’s Story is 120K words long, my editor is doing edits in three split parts. The book itself is written in three parts, so it makes sense to edit in three smaller, more manageable sections. Then we’ll put it all back together into one book before release 🙂  Anyway, I’ve done the first-round edits of the first section. I’m still hoping for an August 29th release, but damn, it’s gonna be super…
