Long time no see, valiant readers of this blog! Apologies for my neglect. Just know that instead of writing loads of posts, I’ve been writing eight million books, so I think it all works out in the end. It’s enormously relieving that I didn’t forget how to write a book in the first place!
Anyway, to the matter at hand: I have a new book out! A sexy, angsty, New Adult novel, with an enormous hunk of manbeef hero, and a nervous but determined-to-climb-him-like-a-tree heroine.
First of all, it’s the beginning of my Dark Obsession series. These are all books set at Breckenridge University, and though each one features a different couple they all interconnect to some extent. You’ll see characters from each book occasionally pop in other books – though the main link between them is the theme.
I love characters who are ravenous for each other as you may well know, and I really wanted to explore that. With maybe add an extra pinch of tortured twisted darkness.
So here is the first, Never Loved:
Beatrix Becker spent most of her life under the thumb of her controlling, abusive father. And now that she’s free and attending her dream college, she has no idea how to act like the normal crowd: partying, going on dates, even having a conversation. Then she meets Serge Sorensen. Big and surly with a whole host of riotous tattoos, Serge is supposed to scare the hell out of her. But beneath his harsh exterior, Beatrix discovers a kindred spirit who knows what it’s like to be a misfit. Most exhilarating-and terrifying-is what he does for a living: illegal street fighting.
There’s nothing like the rush Serge gets from the intense athleticism and brutal glory of combat-though his chemistry with Beatrix comes close. Slowly at first, he introduces her to his world, where he lives by instinct, passion, and desire. He even helps her out with her equally traumatized brother. But when Serge gets in too deep with the wrong people, he ends up paying in blood. And suddenly, just as Beatrix has been drawn into Serge’s perfectly sculpted arms, she’s thrown once and for all into the fight of his life.
And finally just to let you guys know I’ll be doing a giveaway shortly for an Amazon gift card.

Yes, the rumors are true, I have finally got around to setting up an email newsletter!
One of my friends works in marketing and she told me that newsletters and mailing lists are a great way to grow your online fanbase. She told me all about how to use email marketing platforms like Constant Contact and even sent me this review by Jamie Spencer so I could find out just why email marketing is so important.
Given the popularity of social media, it is easy to think of the humble email newsletter as something rather outdated. However, even with the huge range of other marketing and advertising routes now available, email marketing can be a totally effective way to improve your reach and can even help you to generate revenue. As an independent author, online marketing makes a big difference to my sales.
Anyway, if I manage to sell just a few extra copies of my books as a result of this newsletter it will all be worthwhile! Plus, I will soon be running a serialization of a brand new story in said newsletter – so don’t miss out!
