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.
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.
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.
About Book 2
Expect to see book 2 at the end of the year. I’ve plotted and planned, researched and dreamed and am so ready to continue with Maya’s adventures.
… Just let me complete revision of DC and get that our to you guys end Aug or early Sep- will keep you posted.
… Oh, and just let me write Lost Soul (Bk 2 DarkWorld) which is next in line.

Ack! Why am I blogging instead of writing and revising and editing and … and … and…
