Psychic Revelations

As we enter the last week of the Heart Search: Betrayal blog tour, I can’t believe how quick the last two weeks have gone.

Anyway, today we have an excerpt hosted by author, Michelle Birbeck. We’ve been friends online for three or four years and I actually met her at FantasyCon in York last year. She’s a lovely lady! Click here to read it.

Deities Rule, Okay?

Yesterday we had one or two technical difficulties – the gods weren’t on our side so hence no post.

However, today they are playing nicely so I’m able to bring you two day’s worth of awesomeness instead of just one.

First up we have the lovely Sherry Fundin, who has an exciting excerpt for you. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a deity! Click here to read more.

Last evening, I was on Writer-Chat with the charming Gerald Hornsby. The last time he interviewed me, my webcam decided not to work so every time I spoke there was a black screen. Luckily that didn’t happen this time! Gerald and I discuss Heart Search: Betrayal, my latest work in progress, and editing. You can catch the entire interview here.

 

Today, my dear friend and fellow author at Myrddin Publishing, Connie J Jasperson pulled out a chair, plonked me in it, and grilled me for a time while tipping tea down my neck at fairly regular intervals. I’m only joking – she was the perfect hostess! Catch the interview here. On a more serious note, Connie is definitely an author to watch out for if you love fantasy – she writes some amazing stories and I love her work (and I’m not just saying that because I’m her main editor)!

Last, but by no means least, another awesome author and friend from Myrddin Publishing, Shaun Allan, has an excerpt where Remy gets let off the hook. But from what? You’ll have to read it to find out! Click here and join me in the asylum once again.

Catch you tomorrow!

 

“Dramatic and Intriguing”

I never get tired of reading reviews for my books. Whether they are good or bad (and luckily mine have been mostly good), the opinions of the reviewers can always teach you something. Their insights into my work have helped me to hone my writing and make my books better.

Today, the wonderful Emma Biddulph reviews Heart Search, book two: Found as part of the Heart Search: Betrayal blog tour. Last week she reviewed book one, Heart Search: Lost (here’s a link in case you missed it), and next week will bring her series of reviews to its climax as she tackles Betrayal. Click here to see what she thinks of it.

I thought it would also be good to remind you a little about the story so here is the book trailer for Heart Search: Found.

 

In addition, the lovely Sonya Alford features a blinding excerpt on her blog from Heart Search: Betrayal. Click here to see what’s occurring.

Don’t forget, you only have one day left to enter the competition to win a FREE eBook of Betrayal. Check out this post for details http://wp.me/p1UhOl-1Q0

A Bit of Kick-Arse

We’re now on day 10 of the Heart Search: Betrayal blog tour and have I got a treat for you today.

A lovely lady and friend, Laura Thomas, who jumped into the Heart Search: Lost blog tour at the last minute to help out and has supported my books ever since, has got a real kick-arse excerpt for you. Click here to read it.

The other post is an interview with eleven-year-old Hannah Greenland. She was a runner up in the Writebulb Christmas story writing competition and has since joined the group. In case you’ve forgotten, Writebulb is the writing group I run. Anyway, please show her some love and click here to read the interview.

Don’t forget about the competition on yesterday’s post – you have two days left in which to get your entry in, and if you haven’t checked out the giveaway yet, now would be as good a time as any, especially with the fabulous items on offer!

Great Balls of Fire

I have to say, yesterday didn’t quite go as planned. One of the two scheduled posts went live, but the other one didn’t. I kept waiting and waiting, but by the time midnight rolled around, I was too shattered to check anymore and went to bed.

So today I’m combining two days in one post. What has she got in store for us I hear you ask. Lots including a competition, is my reply.

First there is an excerpt posted by the lovely Joy Keeney. Someone discovers they have a new gift and to say it’s explosive is an understatement. Click here to see what it is and who’s got it.

Secondly, we have an interview with my friend and fellow author at Myrddin Publishing, Rachel Tsoumbakos. She’s just released a new book called Unremembered Things, which I’m reading at the moment, so you’ll be seeing my review on this soon. It was fun to go ‘down under’ and visit Rachel again. Click here to read more.

Thirdly, my friend and the person who made virtually all the fantastically gorgeous items for my giveaway, Sarah-Jane Bird (Made by Birdies), and the amazing trailer for the book, posts her review of Heart Search: Betrayal. Click here to see if she loved it or hated it.

Here’s a reminder of that amazing trailer:

There might be a fourth post to add to the list, but I’m waiting for the time difference to catch up to find out. That’s the only problem when you have people in different time zones, however, I wouldn’t have it any other way, especially with those people who have been with me ever since Heart Search: Lost was first launched. I count everyone of those people my friends and am eternally grateful for all the help and support they’ve given me along the way.

Now for the competition. Just to see if you’ve been paying attention – who was the first person to give Heart Search: Betrayal a 5-star review during the blog tour. All the correct entrants names will be put into a randomizer and one person will receive a free eBook of Heart Search: Betrayal. Deadline for entries is midday GMT on 18th Feb.

Now don’t forget to enter the Giveaway if you haven’t done so already. Here’s the link in case you missed it before.

And I’ve decided to run a mini competition, mainly to see if you’ve been paying attention. The first person to comment below with the name of the blogger who gave me my first 5-star review, wins a FREE eBook of Heart Search: Betrayal.

Watch out for other mini competitions – I could spring one on you at any time!

Someone’s in Trouble!

I love picking out unique excerpts from Heart Search for people to post. I always try and stop it when it leaves a question in readers’ minds. Does that sound wicked to you?

Maybe it is in some ways, but when you look at it from an Indie author’s point of view, anything which generates interest in their work is a really good thing. Every author wants to create ‘a buzz’ about their books and the more people talk about them, the more well known they become.

Today’s stop on day 4 of the Heart Search: Betrayal blog tour is Maria V A Johnson and she’s got an excerpt from chapter two that will certainly make you wonder what happens next. Click here to read it.
