• Good Morning Monday! What a Release Week!

    The release of The Hate You Drink has far exceeded my expectations of how this book would be received. I was wary of how such an angsty book, dealing with real and horrible things, would be received after a comedy like Upside Down. But people are loving it!!  It went to #1 on release day, and as of yesterday (Sunday), it was #1 in seven countries (US, UK, AUS, CA, FR, IT, Germany) and #2 in Brazil and #7 in Japan. And I have to say folks, that’s just freaking crazy!! And it just proves something that I’ve been saying for years… I really do have the best readers!! For…

  • 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! Exciting Announcement for RARE2020 Edinburgh!

      I’m super excited to announce that I’ll be attending RARE2020 in Edinburgh next year!   The dates are June 26-27th which THANKFULLY coincides with my kids’ two-week school holidays so we could even consider it (my daughter will be in her final year and these holidays are just before the midyear exams).  I need to plan the whole trip, but at the moment it looks like I’ll be taking my kids because a trip to Europe from Australia is the trip of a lifetime, right? 😉  Well, that and there’s NO way my daughter would let me go without her LOL and my son is suuuuuper excited as well. They’re…

  • Good Morning Monday! Whoa, What a Week!

    Boy, it’s been a crazy week. I’ve been busy, mostly off all social media, and I’ve cranked out serious daily word counts, I’ve done some edits, and I’ve been trying to get some signed books out in the post. But I can say now that my WIP is done! Yay!!  I thought it was done on Saturday at 55K words, but when I was re-reading through the hellamess of a first draft, I realised something was missing. Like an entire chapter or two. LOL We needed to see them bond and grow more. Their emotional connection felt rushed and stupid because I hadn’t shown, on-page, enough of how they were…

  • Good Morning Monday! Cover Reveal Day!

    Happy Easter Monday! And the Easter bunny decided to drop off some treats for you all! Not chocolate, unfortunately, but how about a cover and a blurb for my next release? This gorgeous cover was made by Cover Me Darling and I’m just a teeny tiny little bit (a lot) in love with it! Okay, so here it is…  And the blurb! Blurb: Erik Keston, son of the Keston Real Estate empire, knows what it takes to be successful. Despite his inherent wealth, he holds his own. He works hard, he’s grounded, he’s brilliant.
