• Good Morning Monday ~ Tallowwood Excerpt!

      Release day for Tallowwood is getting closer!!  And I promised an excerpt so, without dragging it out, here it is…   Chapter One Detective August Shaw sat in his old, cramped office, tucked away from the rest of the bustling Police Headquarters in Parramatta, Sydney. He preferred it that way. He didn’t even mind the shoebox-sized office if it meant people left him alone. His colleagues would smile at him and some even tried to make small talk about weekend football or local festivals, but August would simply pretend to smile behind his coffee cup and make his excuses to go back to hiding in his office. He felt…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ The Hate You Drink Excerpt!

    It’s release week for The Hate You Drink!!  I’m super excited for the world to meet Erik and Monroe! I’ve had some ARC reviews come in and it’s been overwhelmingly positive, which is wonderful and a huge relief. LOL It’s hard to know how books will be received, especially those that deal with real life issues like addiction. It’s an angsty read, which is a 180 change in direction after Upside Down. But those who have been following me for a while will know, I don’t actually get much choice about the stories my characters want written. LOL Given release day is almost here, I thought I’d share an excerpt……

  • Good Morning Monday! An Upside Down Excerpt!

    It’s almost release day for Upside Down!!  So to celebrate, and to help get you excited, here’s an excerpt!  This is Jordan’s POV – he’s a rambler, and he’s funny 🙂 I can’t wait for you all to meet them, and release day just might coincide with my birthday this week ! I didn’t even notice that the room had cleared out. Merry had pulled up a chair at my side, but Hennessy sat with his knees between mine, holding my hand while I cried. I fucking cried. Through my stupid, traitorous tears, I caught the end of a silent conversation between Merry and him, my Headphones Guy. Hennessy. And…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ And Excerpt, and It’s Almost December?

    “Um what?” is right. December. Pretty sure it was March yesterday but whatever. Good news this week was that I did manage to finish my first draft of Kennard’s Story! Bad news is I had a techfail and managed to lose a bunch of words and research when my iMac gave my laptop the silent treatment and failed to sync. Actually, it’s more a case of my laptop not listening to iMac. It’s kind of a long story. The short version is the words are gone forever and I’m diving back in today to redo it. In other news, it’s only six more days until A Soldier’s Wish is released!!…

  • Good Morning Monday and a Galaxies and Oceans Excerpt!!

    Apologies for missing my post last week. I was driving all day and had no way to post anything. So I’m making it up to you by posting an excerpt this week 🙂 It’s just ONE WEEK until release day and I’m super excited! I can’t wait for you all to meet Patrick and Aubrey. They’re some special characters and their story stems from grief and learning how to live after loss. It has more angst than normal for me, but it is the story they needed told and I learned a long time ago not to argue with characters. 😉 Okay, so I won’t keep you waiting any longer.…

  • Good Morning Monday!! Who wants an Evolved Excerpt?

    Another week. Holy hell. It’s now getting to the point where I’m scared to blink LOL. This year is flying! My kids are now off school for two weeks, and will no doubt be driving me crazy. The joys of working from home LOL  I may have to sequester myself to the library for some quiet time. 😉 But I did promise an excerpt from Evolved, and considering release day is just SEVEN days away, it’s probably overdue. So, enough of my blabbering on… So, without further ado… here it is 🙂 By the time my intercom sounded at nine fifteen the next morning, the butterflies in my belly felt…

  • Good Morning Monday! 2.5 weeks to go!

    OMG there’s only two and a half weeks until we leave for the U.S.!!!    It’s getting real, folks. And I still have so much to do!  BUT, it does look like my next release, The Weight Of It All will be released before I go.  Yay!! JSYK, there won’t be pre-orders for The Weight Of It All.  And chances are there won’t be a blog tour, unless I can pull one together at the last minute. It also means there won’t be my usual new release gift card giveaway etc because I’ll be in transit and can’t guarantee I’ll be able to send the Amazon gift card or even…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ An Update and a Teaser!

    Good morning guys!!  I’m finally home after two weeks, and it’s seriously the best feeling ever. My bed, my shower, my house, my TARDIS coffee mug… Sure, travelling and visiting is nice but nothing beats the feeling of coming home. I have SO much to do. My to-do list resembles a phone book, and I’m starting to panic about not getting everything done before we leave for the US in eight weeks… eeeeeeeeeeek. So this week, the only writing I got done was the plot points for the rest of my WIP. No actual word count but an outline, so that has to count for something. I rarely use an…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ Blood & Milk Excerpt

    I have a little something special for you this week!  I’m still away from home so I’ve scheduled this in advance to make up for my lack of social media presence. Given it’s just ten days until Blood & Milk is released, I thought I’d share with you a little excerpt. This is how Blood & Milk begins… PROLOGUE It was twelve months on. A full year had passed, yet my world had stopped completely. The men who stole my life were charged and would serve time for their crime. No one called it a hate crime, but that’s what it was. If I was expecting some sort of finality…

  • Exchange of Hearts Teaser

    Less than a week to go to the release of Exchange of Hearts, and here is a teaser extract. Blurb: Eighteen-year-old Harrison Haddon has grown up alone. Surrounded by wealth, nannies, and material things, all he craves is the approval of his father. Sent away to the boarding school his father and grandfather attended, it’s assumed he will follow in their footsteps from Sydney’s prestigious Ivy League school straight into medical school. But Harrison doesn’t want to be a doctor. He dreams of music and classical piano. His only true happiness, his escape from the world expected of him, is dismissed by his intolerant and emotionally detached parents. Levi Aston arrives…
