The Hate You Drink

  • Good Morning Sunday ~ News and a Cover and Blurb Reveal!


    Good morning folks! Yes, it’s a Sunday post this week and not a Monday, but I have stuff to post about! It’s been another busy week. Lots of behind-the-scenes stuff and a decent word count was written, so all in all, a good week. Add in that it’s school holidays here and my two childus-interuptuses are home all day makes any productivity even better!

    My WIP is at 40K words, and I’m thinking it will get wrapped up this week with maybe another 8K words to go. Yay! It’s my Christmas story for this year, and it’s very Hallmark-ish, and honestly, it is EVERYTHING the world needs right now. Normally I avoid writing Christmas stories, especially extra schmoopy ones, but this has honestly been a balm to write. I can’t wait for you all to meet Ren and Hamish.

    My next release has been through edits and is now with proofreaders. More on that in a bit…


    First up, Pieces of Me is now at all retailers for a short time only, so now is the time to grab it!

    Pieces of Me is now at all retailers. Still waiting on B&N to fix a listing error (it shows my book but the book you actually purchase is another book, same title, different author, wrong book). Apologies for any delay there. Fingers crossed it will be fixed asap.  Other stores include:




    And Amazon

    The Audiobook of Pieces of me is also available!



    Google Play

    Still not at Audible yet, but that’s no great surprise.  Book Three is being done as I type and hopefully won’t be too far away!

    The Hate You Drink is now on Audio!!!! I’m so excited for you guys to hear this. Antony Ferguson does a fabulous job bringing Erik and Monroe’s story to life. If you want angst, hurt/comfort, and to feel all the feels, this one’s for you. It’s available everywhere, so check out your favourite store!





    Google Play


    I’m very excited to share this with you all! Lacuna is something I’ve wanted to write for years but never felt I was good enough to pull it off. Well, I’ve attempted it and if I’ve succeeded in my attempt will be up to the readers.  This GORGEOUS cover was made by Bukovero, and I love it sooooo much!




    A boychild swathed in green, a distinct tree-shaped birthmark on his wrist. A girlchild enveloped in red, marked with the three lines of the desert winds. A boy bundled in white, the koi mark on his wrist as defined as his shock of red hair. And a boychild wrapped in black, a raven his mark to serve his fate.
    ~ ~ ~
    Twenty-five years ago, the hand of fate marked four newborns and sent them to the four corners of the Great Kingdoms. They were schooled and trained as rulers of their lands in preparation for the Golden Eclipse ceremony: a festival to celebrate a thousand years of peace and prosperity since the Great War.
    Crow, ruler of Northlands, a skilled swordsman and expert tactician, is as reclusive and stoic as the mountains that surround him.
    Tancho has spent his life in strict discipline, governing the Westlands with a fair mind and gentle hand. Quiet and unassuming, yet lethal in combat, he is the embodiment of the waters he lives by.
    Yet the same hand of fate unknowingly linked Tancho to Crow in ways they cannot comprehend. Ruled by the stars, the brother sun and the two sister moons above them, and marked by an alchemical sorcery as old as time, their destinies were never their own.
    As the eclipse draws near and the festival begins, word comes of another threat. Invaders from unknown lands bring a war no one was prepared for, and Crow and Tancho must decide on which side of the battle line they stand.
    In life or death, their destinies will see them joined either way.



    I’m soooo excited for you guys to read this book!!! I will post more about it in the coming weeks and yes, there will be a pre-order for this because amazon is still a mess and highly unpredictable at the moment. Will post that when I have it, so stay tuned!

    In other news, Taxes and TARDIS audio has been submitted and should start appearing at retailers soon! As we know, Audible will be the slowest, so please be patient. Nick Russo has done an outstanding job too, as he does with all his work!

    The audio of Nova Praetorian is out of Audible’s exclusive clause and will also start appearing at other retailers soon!

    I’m hoping to wrap up my Christmas book this week, then I can start a super short secret surprise story where we revisit some old friends…

    Have a great week everyone. Stay safe!

    Until then…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ Coming Up & Audio Update


    Sorry for not posting my weekly update last week. Kinda out of spoons lately, not gonna lie. I’ve been taking some mental health days off social media and it has helped me regroup and recharge. Some days we just need to unplug for a bit and take a breath.

    I’ve been struggling to make headway on my WIP. It’s at 27K words and honestly, I should have finished it weeks ago. But I can almost see the finish line (It’s a novella) but I really do love these characters. They’re cute and authentic, and their story is about being true to one’s self and finding people who appreciate the real you. It’s supposed to be Christmassy but it’s really about as festive as I am (spoiler: I am not festive LOL).  I can’t give too much away just yet, but I can tell you my WIP is part of this amazing line up:



    Ace’s Wild is a multi-author series of novellas that take place in the same fictional town. The connecting element in the Ace’s Wild series is an adult store owned by a gay couple–Ace and Wilder! The main characters from each novella will make at least one visit to Ace’s Wild, where they’ll buy some kind of fun toy to use in their story. Each novella can be read as a standalone. The only characters who crossover to each book are Ace and Wilder. And with various heat and kink levels, there’s sure to be something for everyone!


    Me, obv. LOL Riley Hart, Christina Lee, Devon McCormack, Annabella Michaels, SE Jakes, Morningstar Ashley, Neve Wilder, Lane Hayes, Jaclyn Quinn, Luna David, Davidson King, Alice Winters, Max Walker.


    The first novella will be released September 24th with one coming out each Tuesday for fourteen weeks!  Given you know mine is a Christmas novella, I can say my release is early December 🙂

    The Best Part:

    For the first 90 days after each novella releases, royalties (buys and page reads) will go to an LGBTQ charity of the author’s choice! So…you’ll not only get some great reads, you’ll be helping a charity in the process. Each charity will be clearly labeled in the blurb of each book.

    We’re so excited to bring you guys this series! It’s been killing us to keep it to ourselves. We hope you have as much fun in our quirky little town as we did! I will post more on this when I can. I can NOT wait for everyone to see the amazing covers we have for these books!!


    I’ll be finishing this WIP up this week. I’m also travelling a lot in the next month, so I’ll be offline trying to get as many words written as I can.



    The Hate You Drink is now enjoying wide distribution.

    You can find it at the following retailers:






    Still waiting on Scribd, but here’s my author page:

    Tallowwood Cover and Blurb Reveal COMING SOON!!

    I’ve been working on edits and getting some crinkles ironed out, and it’s almost ready for my proofreaders. I had a general idea of the cover I wanted and I’d played around with a lot of ideas, but something wasn’t quite right. So I passed it off to Reese Dante and holy crap, she NAILED it. I’m so very excited about this book – I love the characters so much. I can’t wait to share the cover and blurb with you! Stay tuned for that next week!




    I explained the other week that my audio schedule for 2019 has changed, and I’d like to elaborate. Nova Praetorian has been uploaded into ACX and is due out any day/week now, and this will be my last collaboration with Joel Leslie.  I’ve since removed all future planned collabs from my immediate schedule, and have been exploring other avenues with other narrators.

    The only books I can confirm at this time are Nova (due out soon), Sir is scheduled for Nov (with Nick Russo) and Upside Down should be a Sept release (with a new-to-me Aussie narrator). I’m super excited about Upside Down coming to audio!! I’ll reveal more soon, and I’m hoping this narrator will also be on board for narrating Tallowwood. Tallowwood is a special book for me, and I’d love to have it done. But it’s another long one (approx 100K words) so it will be super pricey to produce.

    In all likelihood, Kennard’s Story won’t be done in audio. Which isn’t ideal, I know. And If The Hate You Drink, Private Charter, Imago and Imagines, or Sixty Five Hours ever make it to a studio, remains to be seen at this time. I’d like to think they will, but it will be next year if at all.

    I know this is disappointing for some folks, and it is for me too. But also, for some business perspective, please bear in mind that audios are hella-expensive to produce. This year alone, I’ve already spent over $15K AUD on getting audios done. By the years’ end, I will have 12 audios release this year. Getting some of my backlist into production was my plan and I have NO regrets. LOL (I love audiobooks!). And I still plan to produce audios when I can, and will let you guys know if and when that happens. Thank you for your patience and understanding. 🧡🧡



    I have the Italian version of Imago coming out very soon, and the German version of Switched coming out soon, and I’m so excited!  I never could have dreamed my books would be translated around the world and it blows my mind. I’ll show the covers when I can! Thank you everyone for being along for this crazy ride!


    Okay folks, I have another busy week coming up, but I should be back with another update next Monday with the cover and blurb to Tallowwood. Until then…

  • 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 those who might have missed it, you can find The Hate You Drink at this Universal Link

    And in Audio news, Clarity of Lines is OUT NOW!!  Nick Russo does a SUPERB job narrating Tom and Cooper’s story. I couldn’t have chosen a better voice to bring their books to life. <3




    Okay folks, that’s it for this week. I’ve sent my next book to my editor, and I need to immerse myself in my Work in Progress and get some words down. It’s a little (or a lot) out of my comfort zone so I’m second guessing every word… Ugh. I just need to get out of my own head and write ALL the words!!

    Until next week!!


  • The Hate You Drink is OUT NOW!!!



    ★ O U T   N O W ★




    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. He’s also secretly in love with his best friend.

    Monroe Wellman lost his parents three years ago and never grieved, never recovered. Inheriting the family company and wealth means nothing, and his spiral of self-destruction is widespread and spectacular. Dubbed Sydney’s bad boy, he spends more days drunk than sober, and the only person who’s stuck by him through it all is his best mate.

    But when Monroe hits rock bottom, Erik gives him an ultimatum, and his entire world comes to a grinding halt. It’s not until the haze lifts that Monroe can truly see what he’s been searching for was never in the bottom of a bottle. It’s been by his side all along.

    * * *

    An 80,000-word friends-to-lovers story about fighting the demons within and trusting in the love that takes its place.

    “Because when all you drink is hate, that’s all there is inside you.”


    I’m suuuuuuper excited for you all to meet Erik and Monroe!  The early reviews have been FABULOUS and it’s already #1 in Australia!!

    Love you guys!!  <3

  • 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…



    I didn’t need to see the photographs of the wrecked car or the glass and metal strewn across the gutter. I didn’t need the reminder of how close it had been this time. I closed the newspaper, folded it in half, and slid it across the counter and let out an exhausted sigh. I didn’t want to meet Jeffrey’s disappointed gaze. I knew that look. I’d seen it more times than I could count. Jeffrey Kwon, a distinguished Korean-Australian man with short greying hair and a kind face, had been a close friend of Monroe’s parents as well as their trusted lawyer for thirty years, and Jeffrey assumed the same role for Monroe when his parents died. He was no-nonsense and astute, but he had a heart of gold and everyone knew Monroe would be lost without him. Well, everyone but Monroe.

    “Where is he?”

    “Still asleep,” I replied. I walked over to the nearest couch and all but fell into it, my head in my hands.

    “You haven’t been to bed yet?”

    I was too tired to even scoff. “Nope. It was after three by the time we left the police station. And then I had to get him into bed.” I didn’t tell him that I’d sat on the end of Monroe’s bed when he’d passed out, trying to calm my anxiety. How many nights had I got a phone call from him, drunk, needing help or a lift, to pick him up from a bar or the police station? A quick glance at my phone told me it was just after eight. The morning sun was up and glaring angrily over the Pacific like it could feel my mood. I scrubbed my hand over my face, feeling the minutes of sleep I’d missed. “How he didn’t hurt himself or someone else, I’ll never know.”

    “It’s only a matter of time before he does.” Jeffrey’s tone was as sharp as his suit, whereas I felt like Monroe’s crumpled wreck that had been winched onto the tow truck last night.

    I nodded, because he was right. We all knew he was right. Everyone, that was, but Monroe.

    “I’ll have the insurance forms sent over this afternoon,” Jeffrey said. He rarely let his emotions show, but I could tell he was angry and disappointed. He was probably a dozen different emotions right now. What he wasn’t was surprised. This was far from the first time.

    “Thanks, Jeffrey. He does appreciate it.”

    He gave a nod and walked toward the grand foyer, but he stopped before he got to the door. “Does he? Does he appreciate all you do for him?”

    I didn’t answer. Even if I knew what to say, I couldn’t get the words out. But Jeffrey didn’t wait for a reply. The soft click of the front door was loud in the silence.

    My heart was a weighted lump in my chest. My ribs felt too tight like I couldn’t breathe properly. Like I hadn’t been able to breathe properly in years. The space of Monroe’s house was vast—tiled floors, high ceilings, glass walls overlooking the ocean, no expense spared—yet the vast emptiness was overwhelming. A mansion worth several million dollars, on every elite real-estate list in Australia, was a hollow void of loneliness and grief, much like the man who owned it. Who was, at that very moment, passed out drunk in his bed.

    The heaviness of the last twelve hours settled over me, and I slumped down on the couch, pulled a cushion under my head, and closed my eyes.

    * * *

    “Hey, sleeping beauty, wake up.”

    I startled and shot up. Disoriented at first, until I remembered I was on Monroe’s couch. He was standing at the end of the sofa with his arms full of brown paper bags, and then I could smell something.

    “I was starving,” he said. “And Uber Eats is a gift from the gods. Shuffle up.”

    I slid up the couch a little and he parked himself next to me, shoved the bags and a pizza box onto the coffee table, then pulled it toward us. “I didn’t know what you felt like, so I got that wood-fired pizza you like and some curry and—”

    “What time is it?” I asked. Usually the view out the window was a good indication of the time, but it had come over cloudy. Summer storms usually rolled in around four.

    “Half two.”

    “Shit. I didn’t mean to sleep that long. I was supposed to go into the office today.”

    Monroe shrugged like he did to most responsibility. “Here, get this into ya.” He opened the pizza box and turned it to face me.

    I took a bite and moaned. It was so good. “How long you been up?”

    “An hour or so.”

    His black hair was damp and he smelled of salt water. “I didn’t hear you swim.” Which was surprising considering the living room opened up into the pool area.

    “Stealth mode,” he said with a grin, his blue eyes sparkling. “Nah. You were dead to the world.”

    I didn’t bother explaining that I didn’t get to sleep till after eight. I studied his face; there was a small scratch on his forehead and marks on his hands, probably from the glass or air bag. “How you feeling?”


    And that was his problem. He always woke up feeling fine. Maybe if he’d ever suffered just one hangover in his life, he might think twice about drinking so much.

    “Your picture’s in the paper,” I said. “And photos of the car.”

    He grimaced for half a second before he took another forkful of curry. “You see Jeffrey?”

    I nodded. “He was here before eight this morning. He brought the paper with him.”

    Monroe stirred his curry, frowning. “Was he mad?”

    “Yep. Said he’ll have the insurance papers sent around for the car.” I took a bite of pizza and swallowed it. “Wanna tell me what happened last night?”

    He sighed. “Not really. I had one too many. You know how it is.”


    “Okay, a few.”

    “And you drove.”

    “I was fine.”

    “Your blood alcohol level was high range.”

    He frowned again, this time stabbing a piece of curried beef. “I was fine. I didn’t feel drunk at all.”

    I knew there was no point in arguing with him, so I tried a different approach. “You could have hurt yourself, Monroe,” I said gently. “Or someone else. You’re lucky it was a pole you hit and not a pedestrian or a car full of kids.”

    “Yeah, it was stupid, I know. I won’t do it again.”

    “Well, no, you can’t. Because now you don’t have a car or a licence.”

    He pointed his fork at me. “That is true. Well, there’s the old Discovery in the garage,” he said. “Haven’t driven that in a while.”

    “Old? It’s two years old,” I said. “And you’re not driving it anywhere. You get caught driving unlicensed now and the judge will likely throw the book at you to prove a point. Not to mention that unlicensed means uninsured.”

    “Where’s your sense of adventure?” he asked, giving me that sly grin that usually got him out of all kinds of trouble.

    “My sense of adventure is keeping you out of jail.”

    He chuckled and nudged me with his shoulder. “Always looking out for me,” he said. “Thanks, by the way, for coming to get me last night.”

    “I should have left you there,” I said, nudging him back. “In a cell with two guys named Warthog and Donk.”

    He laughed. “Sounds like a dream I had once. It didn’t end badly, let’s just say that much.”

    I snorted, unable to stay mad at him. And that was my problem. I could never stay mad at him.

    He put his curry down and took a slice of pizza, biting into it. “Mmm, this is good too. Hey, we should go out tonight. There’s a summer blues night on at the Wharf.”

    I shook my head, but he was, like always, relentless and charming and so fucking cute, and I could never say no to him. Which was another one of my problems.

    “Come on, it’ll be fun. It’s summer. We’ll have a swim, laze about for the afternoon, have a nap, then we can go out later. Who knows, you might even find some random to take home.”

    I forced a smile, like I always did. “Unlikely.”

    “Dunno why,” he said, oblivious. “You don’t look half bad,” he said with a smirk and a nudge. “If a young Robert Redford is your thing and you have more money than God. And fuck knows guys throw themselves at you.”

    “More money than God?”

    “Shut up, you know you do.” He pushed the pizza box away. “You know what your problem is, Erik?”

    Actually, I did. But I played along. “Nope, tell me what my problem is.”

    “You’re too picky.”

    I snorted. “Is that right?”

    “Yep. So tonight, when a guy looks twice at you, take him into the bathrooms.”

    “Not really my style, but thanks.”

    He laughed and stood up, then walked toward the pool. The glass doors were all pushed back, transforming the inside living area into a huge outdoor living area. He peeled off his shirt and stopped to face me. He looked even better in the sunlight. “Are you gonna lecture me about swimming after eating?”

    “Wouldn’t dream of it.”

    “Then get your arse into the pool with me. It’s too nice a day and life is too damn short.” He tossed his shirt and dived into the pool.

    And there were both our problems laid bare. His was that he shirked off all responsibility, drank far too much, and lived like every day was his last, which in his case, with his drinking problem and reckless nature, it very well could be.

    My problem was that I couldn’t stay mad at him and I couldn’t say no to him.

    Oh, that, and I was absolutely head over heels in love with him. Had been since we were eighteen years old. I was so in love with him, I’d let him treat me like a doormat if it just meant he’d keep me around. It was a sickness.

    He had his addiction, and he was mine.

    His addiction to alcohol was killing him.

    And watching him slowly spiral out of control, being so close to him but so far away, was killing me.

    Addiction, in all its forms, fucking sucked.



    The paperback will be available the same day, or a day after, depending on how distribution pans out from Ingram. The gorgeous cover by Cover Me Darling is soooooo pretty!!



    My current WIP is at a very slow 11,000 words.  There is a lot of research that makes it slow, and my self-doubt makes it even slower. Buuuuut, onward I will press. I’m still confident this will be a trilogy of novellas but that’s something only time will tell.  I can tell you the main character’s names are August and Jacob. August is a grumpy detective, Jacob is a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, but very competent and intelligent, senior constable. It’s set in Australia, and I’m actually enjoying writing it, despite my hesitation and reluctance to write a mystery/crime story.

    Some days I wish my brain would just cut me a break. LOL

    Okay folks, that’s it for this week. I’ll be back with buy-links for The Hate You Drink on release day! <3

    Until then…

  • 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 old enough to explore the city by themselves during the signing, but I’m hoping we can squeeze in some sightseeing after even though the trip is going to be extremely short and jam-packed.

    I want to see EVERY country in Europe but obviously that’s not possible on this trip. Or probably ever, given I live on the opposite side of the planet. 😛  But I’m seriously STOKED to be invited and attending RARE2020. It’s going to be a huge event – a gazillion fabulous authors from all genres.  Reader’s are in for an absolute treat!!



    I will post more information when I have it. I’m not certain about pre-orders yet, or any finer details yet. I have a LOT to organise first, but fear not. I will be yelling it from the rooftops when I know. So please stay tuned!!

    Release day for The Hate You Drink is getting closer!!!  I’m aiming for May 23rd but that’s depending on a few factors. But I will keep you all updated if the date changes. It will be in KU first and then it will go to other retailers.



    We’re slowly getting my new website up and running. The whole website debacle has been one nightmare after another, and I’m much happier now it’s back in my hands… and when I say ‘my hands’ I mean my awesome assistant Jenn is doing it for me LOL   But no, I definitely won’t be using a “web-master” or “site-designer” ever again. They can all sod off, as far as I’m concerned.  Considering my odds are two for two, I’ll take a hard pass on ever trusting anyone else to do it ever again. LOL

    In WIP news, I’ve sent my last WIP to some beta-readers who have given me some great feedback. I’m letting it simmer for a bit, and I’ll be starting a new one this week!!!  I’m really nervous about this one though – I was supposed to write it in 2017 but I freaked out and put it on hold. I think it’s their time now… hoping their resolve holds (and mine) and I can do it justice 😉  I can say it’s a cop/cold case story that I *think* will be a trilogy. Not sure…. just getting the trilogy vibe. LOL

    Okay that’s enough from me. I’m off mid-week taking my daughter and her friend to Post Malone in Sydney <best mother of the year>

    Have a great week!! <3


  • 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 together.

    So I wrote 5K yesterday and now I’m so much happier with it. 🙂

    First drafts are always a mess and in much need of work. This one was no different. And I wrote a crazy amount of words this month. Like almost 70K words, which is a LOT for me.  But this story FLEW out of my brain and out my fingers. Admittedly, there’s a lot of sex in this story. A LOT. hahaha! It could even border on erotica. Not even kidding. But there is a romance in there somewhere, and maybe a dash of plot. Maybe. LOL

    I’ll share more about it when it gets a little closer, and maybe after some pre-readers tell me it’s not a steaming pile of garbage. 😉

    Here’s a little pic teaser of what this story is about…

    Delicious, yes?  More info soon, I promise!

    First round edits of The Hate You Drink have been done! Yay!! To be honest, I was expecting huge rewrites on that one but my editor said I kinda nailed it, so go me!  It’s angsty and there’s quite a bit of psychology-speak and I needed to make sure I had it the best I could. It seriously helps when your editor used to be a trained therapist in a previous life! (seriously, love her) <3 But I always stress over making sure I get the details as right as I can…

    Anyway, I’m aiming for a release of May 23rd but that could change. I’m super excited for you all to meet Erik and Monroe!

    This week I’ll be tidying up my WIP, getting more of those signed paperbacks sent off, and cleaning out my office. A month of hammering my keyboard and neglecting everything else has meant my office now looks like a dump. I keep wishing little cleaning fairies would come and do it while I sleep but no such luck yet 😉

    Oh, and I’ll be jotting down lots of research points and gathering a butt-tonne of facts and info ready for my next book. I’m really not sure how it’s going to go… It will be like nothing I’ve done and I’m thinking it could be a trilogy but I won’t know until I start writing it. I wanted to write it a year or two ago but it wasn’t the right time. Apparently now the MC is giving me impatient stares…  Because of course he is. 😉

    Until next week! Much love and stay safe!

  • 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!


    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. He’s also secretly in love with his best friend.
    Monroe Wellman lost his parents three years ago and never grieved, never recovered. Inheriting the family company and wealth means nothing, and his spiral of self-destruction is widespread and spectacular. Dubbed Sydney’s bad boy, he spends more days drunk than sober, and the only person who’s stuck by him through it all is his best mate. 
    But when Monroe hits rock bottom, Erik gives him an ultimatum, and his entire world comes to a grinding halt. But it’s when the haze is lifted that Monroe can truly see what he’s been searching for was never in the bottom of a bottle. It’s been by his side all along.

    An 80,000-word friends to lovers story about fighting the demons within, and trusting in the love that takes its place.

    “Because when all you drink is hate, that’s all there is inside you.”

    Release date: Late May. And it will be exclusive to Amazon, and on Kindle Unlimited <3

    And a super quick WIP update:

    Currently at 36K words. It’s super sexy, a little BDSM/kink-ish, and not really like anything I’ve ever written before.  I’m thinking it should only be 50K all said and done, and I’m finalising the title and cover as we speak. I’m hoping for a July release date but that’s subject to a lot of things.

    That’s it for this week guys. Oh, and if you want to be super jealous, I’ll be seeing The End Game at 8am on Wednesday 24th. I’m a huge Marvel fan and I can NOT explain how excited I am for this!! 

    Until next week! <3
