Happy Release Day to FIRE!!

Fire is Released! Yay! Wow!

The day has finally arrived when FIRE goes into the big big world for readers to enjoy. I began writing this book in October 2011 then set it aside to write Dead Embers- Book 2 in the Valkyrie series. Juggling editing and writing, while preparing to launch Dead Radiance in Feb 2012 was no mean feat and something that pushed me outside my comfort zone simply because I wrote Dead Radiance uninterrupted from start to finish in July 2011, edited it uninterrupted in Sep 2011, then moved on to Fire in Oct 2011.

The Delays!

What happened next pulled me straight into the real world of a writer which is not just tapping away at the keys all day. It’s the juggle and dance of planning, writing, revision, edits, preparation for publication, promotion and marketing. With all the fun stuff how can a girl write?!

So I put Fire aside, finished Dead Embers, wrote a bit more of Fire, released that in Aug 2012

More delays, drugs & zombies!

And then ended up in hospital from Sep to Oct 2012 with a three month semi-drugged (or lets be honest here, drugged is the best way to describe the zombieness of morphine) stint of almost no writing, while preparing for surgery that never happened (thank you stars!)

Publishing other stuff aka What the heck are you thinking?!

I did manage to finish Fire in Dec 2012 though but put it aside again to regroup and publish Skin Deep which had been waiting in the wings originally planned for a Nov 2012 release but delayed to said drug-induced zombieness.

Back on track!! Yay! Wow!

I’m happy to say that at last things are back on track. Fire is now out there for all you lovely people to read. And Dead Chaos is in revisions soon to be released to eager Valkyrie fans.

About Fire!

Maya is just a kid wanting to be normal, rebelling against her upbringing, embarrassed that her parents believe in stuff that’s just myth and legend. But when she smokes a dude (aka kills him dead aka incinerates him to embers and dust) by accident she realizes there’s more to being Maya than she ever knew.

Fire has something for everyone: Gorgeous gods, deadly demons, freaking awesome fire power and lots of sizzling smooches. Not to mention a mythology that has seldom been explored, a peek into what it’s like living with ones self-generated prejudices, and what its like to go way beyond what you have ever expected just to accept something you denied in the first place. How Maya does it is the story of Fire- the Hand of Kali.

DEAD EMBERS
A Valkyrie Novel – Book 2

About Dead Embers:

DEAD EMBERS- Book 2 in the Valkyrie Novels

Valkyrie-in-training Bryn Halbrook just can’t catch a break. With her boyfriend stuck in Hel and the taunting laughter of Loki still ringing in her ears, she struggles to concentrate on her training and duties in Odin’s realm. The last thing she expects or wants is more adventure—but then treachery, a shocking abduction and a chilling discovery send her forth on another perilous, globe-hopping mission.
As the ultimate battle, Ragnarok, draws closer, it’s a race against time for Bryn, Fenrir and their team to discover who kidnapped her foster brother from the halls of Asgard and what’s causing the mysterious deaths of so many of Odin’s chosen warriors.
In the exciting sequel to DEAD RADIANCE, Bryn encounters dwarfs and dragons, new friends and old foes—but worst enemy of all may be the person she trusts most!

A Fan Date, an Update and a Sneak Preview…

I had an interesting experience last weekend that was a sorta affirmation, kinda exhilaration and a whole lotta book-love. And it got me thinking about why I write, what it is about writing that truly satisfies me.

What happened?

I had what I called a fan-date. And, mind you, it all happened because of One Direction (you know.. the boy band all the girls are crazy for) okay, moving on. Cath aka BookChatterCath and her mom loved DEAD RADIANCE so we met for coffee. Also, since I’m sneak this way, I arranged for a little surprise. Knowing that Cath absolutely loved Melissa Pearl, author of the Time Spirit Trilogy, I got Mel to join us and kept it secret until the day. Don’t we all love yelling SURPRISE!

We had such an awesome time. What lovely ladies! And we just couldn’t stop talking. And Cath was wearing Bryn’s necklace,  well Cath’s replica of Bryn’s necklace. Well… you know what I mean. Anyway, when I finally noticed I about fell off my seat- so cool! And just between you and me, the whole experience had me a little off kilter too (picture me ordering a macchiato instead of a mochachino- yup, not a mistake you want to make when warm, chocolatey coffee is what you want, but you end up with a thimble sized cup of coffee strong enough to have you buzzing for 24 hours straight) Yeah, I hear you laugh… you can stop now thank you 🙂

To me, this is what it’s all about. Not the fandom and the accolades but the little humble fact that someone enjoyed my book. Enough to want to meet me and talk about it. To tell me how much they loved it. To talk about things in the the book that made me sit back in a little daze because I just wrote the book for people to read it. I didn’t really sit there thinking ‘So when someone decides to talk about this book, what will they say?’ Needless to say I was floored.

And honestly, I want to be able to always do this. What better way to experience the happiness we, as authors, give to our readers than to meet them and talk to them in person. Loved it.

If anything this experience was a key factor in getting me back on track with edits and writing and planning. It was my Red Bull, my adrenalin, my sugar rush- okay before I begin to crave chocolate again lets move on.

I’m editing DEAD EMBERS at the moment, and preparing to edit SECOND SKIN. Both books are releasing at the end of August 2012. It’s double the excitement double the fun I tell you!

I’m also still waiting on entries in the Bryn’s Necklace Competition- go here for details and enter at your leisure…

In the meantime- something special – a Sneak Preview of the cover of DEAD EMBERS!!

DEAD EMBERS

And a little Excerpt too- just because 🙂

DEAD EMBERS 

Book 2 in the Valkyrie Series

Chapter 1

Cold burrowed into my knees, digging icy claws deep into bone. Despite the pain, I didn’t move. I knelt on the white marble floor of Odin’s Hall, time suspended in a maelstrom of seconds and minutes and unshed tears.

My gaze lay fixed, unblinking, on the bright red of Aidan’s blood. Slick blood dripped from my quivering hands, warm and sticky, like honey. Yet there was nothing sweet or pleasant about having the warm ruby liquid seep into the whorls of my fingers, and stain my hands and my clothing.

The sounds of the Great Hall simmered around me, fading into the shadows of my despair. Only the rabid cackle of Loki’s laughter filtered through my sorrow. The rattle of his chains echoed in my ears as Fenrir dragged him away….
