As the second book in my Under The Skin trilogy is coming out soon (January 27th oh my god oh my god just wait there I need to stick my head between my knees) I thought it might be a good idea to post about the first one that came out a little while ago. Yeah – I’m THAT behind on my blogging about things. BUT in my defence I have written like seventeen million books in a year and almost killed myself over Christmas with work rather than slouching on the sofa with chocolate oozing from every pore.
So I can be forgiven, right? I hope so, because now I am going to just chat about the book anyway. Basically, it is an intense, almost romantic suspense type of story about a man who once helped the FBI catch a serial killer and the woman who helps him get over the terrible scar that left on his psyche. And if that doesn’t convince you this book is worth a look, maybe I should say: the hero was based on Will Graham from Hannibal/Red Dragon. Who looks like this:
I swear his eyes are made out of sexy pies.
And if even THAT doesn’t do the trick, here are some of the reviews it has gotten from various fabulous places:
A starred one from Publisher’s Weekly!
An excerpt featured at RT after they gave it an amazing review!
Look, Fiction Vixen liked it too!
And Heroes and Heartbreakers!
I know right I could hardly believe it either. Getting a starred review at PW was pretty much the highlight of my career. Still have to pinch myself over it. Still have to pinch myself over all of it. I’m covered in bruises, and only half of them are to do with my dog. Yes, dear blog readers. I got a dog since we last spoke. Here he is, looking like something Will Graham would steal if he saw it roaming around in a field outside his house:
Even though he is the devil incarnate. No honestly he is Satan. The real Dark Lord gazed upon Minion’s works and promptly retired out of shame at his own woefully inadequate evilness. To share exactly what I mean, I’m tempted to open an Instagram account for him. In the deepest part of my mind, I know that he’s no different from any other dog and every owner wants to believe their dog is special, but that is a very, very deep part of the mind. Right now, my minds telling me that this dog deserves to be famous for its devilish ways. Stay tuned to see if the Instagram account goes ahead as I’ll need to build up my followers; I’ll probably get free instagram followers from Socialfollow to build up the future success. I know so many people that do have these Instagram accounts for their dogs, and they say it’s fun running one. My friend runs one, and she said that it’s just talking to people about your dog all day, which any dog owner would love. She did say that she had to use an instagram manager at first to get her account started. Apparently, that helped her to get some followers straight away, and they all engaged with her posts apparently. Now, my friend has a lot of followers. Maybe I should start one! I’ll keep you all updated.
But enough about nightmarish dogs, pinching and pie eyes. Onto the best part about this post, the part you have all been waiting for: a giveaway! Yes, I am running a massive giveaway to celebrate the release of Intrusion, including a copy of that very book, a copy of my last book Beyond Repair, and three other choices that five winners will get to make from my backlist! And all you have to do to enter is sign up for my newsletter (sign up is on the right of this page or on the welcome page) which will be going out in the next few days and follow, the very simple email me type instructions therein.
Good luck everybody,
P.S. Interested in ARCs of my many, many upcoming releases? I’m putting together a list of readers and reviewers who will automatically get copies of my latest books early in exchange for reviews. There is no obligation beyond your honest thoughts on the book – I don’t mind if you hate it, love it, are indifferent to it, DNF and never review…it’s up to you! No blog too big or small, and Amazon/Goodreads reviews more than qualify. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
