My stand-alone novel, A Shiver of Blue, is now out in the world.
I started writing this book when I was 14 years old, scribbling on bits of paper, and I finished it after it stayed with me all this time. It’s a change of pace for me, subtle and spooky, probably the closest to literary fiction I’ll write.
It’s very different to the Mortality series where Ava is driven to fight for her freedom, while Caroline in A Shiver of Blue is an unreliable narrator whose world is dictated by the people around her. I loved weaving her story.❄️🕸💙
The final book in the Mortality series has now released! I want to say a massive and heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who has been so supportive. 😘 😘 ❤️ When I started writing Mortality five years ago, I honestly didn’t know whether I’d get to finish this series. But here it is! Before the Raging Lion is out now and I don’t think it’s sunk in yet that I won’t be writing about Ava and Michael anymore. They’ve been a part of my life for years and it’s sort of like saying goodbye to good friends.❤️
To celebrate, Beyond the Ever Reach is 99c on Kindle (US and UK) until August 3rd 😁
I’ve been writing as fast as I can to finish the fourth and final book in the Mortality series – Before the Raging Lion. I’m hoping to have it up for preorder within the next few weeks so please keep an eye out for news about that.
Before the Raging Lion concludes the Mortality series, revealing all the secrets and Ava’s final battle – for her life.
Here’s an excerpt:
I’m beyond excited to let you know that the third book in the Mortality series, By the Icy Wild, is out now. The third book follows Ava into the icy mountains of Starsgard where she faces new dangers and challenges – and also discovers the biggest secret of all.
Here’s a snippet from a scene with Snowboy, the boy Ava meets at the end of book two who has secrets of his own…
I’m planning to release the fourth and final book in the series, Before the Raging Lion, in August 2017.
In the meantime, you can read all three books for FREE on Kindle Unlimited!
Beneath the Guarding Stars (Mortality #2) has now released. The action and romance continue for Ava and Michael in the land of Starsgard ⭐⭐ For a while, I wasn’t sure when or how this book was going to be published, so seeing it out in the world is all sorts of emotions.?
A note: Beneath the Guarding Stars has a cliffhanger ending ? I’m almost finished the third book and I’ll get it out there as soon as I can. ?
To celebrate the release of the second book, the first book in the series Beyond the Ever Reach (Mortality #1) is FREE on Kindle this weekend. But only from Friday November 4th to Sunday November 6th 2016 (pacific time). International peeps, please keep in mind the timezone differences and adjust for your timezone. Also, apparently there can be some system variations in start and finish times, so please get in quickly to avoid disappointment.
There’s also a Goodreads giveaway for one paperback copy of each of the books (US, CA, GB, AU) open for entries until November 30th, 2016.
The giveaway for Beyond the Ever Reach (Mortality #1) is here.
The giveaway for Beneath the Guarding Stars (Mortality #2) is here.
Good luck and thank you!
When things changed for my books several months ago, I didn’t want to put them in a drawer and forget about them. But moving forward meant big changes. And so, my debut novel, previously published as Fear My Mortality, has become… Beyond the Ever Reach.
It’s out now on Kindle and in paperback.
Beneath the Guarding Stars picks up right where we left Ava and Michael at the end of the first book…
In a world where nobody can be killed, one girl will change it all… Ava and Michael have fought their way to Starsgard, but crossing the border comes with a price and their home country is ravaged by fear and hatred of mortals. They soon discover that peace is an illusion and danger is closer than they feared.
And now to the cover reveal…
Beneath the Guarding Stars releases on November 18th and is available to pre-order now. Having said that, I’m going to see if I can release it earlier. Please sign up to my newsletter if you want to be the first to hear all the news.
My heartfelt thanks go out to everyone who has been so supportive of my books and this change.
Beneath the Guarding Stars, the sequel to Fear My Mortality, is coming soon. I’m hoping for an October release with specific date coming soon.
It continues Ava and Michael’s story from the moment we left them. Here’s a short excerpt…
Seth’s eyes and the set of his jawline and his hands told me that this moment wasn’t about dance—it was about whether or not I was accepted into a group that didn’t accept just anybody. He pulled me close to him in a final move that saw me leaning backward, one leg extended. My old dance teacher’s voice rang in my mind. “Perfect lines,” she’d sing with a clap of her hands—the closest she’d get to a compliment.
Except that this boy didn’t want me here, and his arms didn’t tingle with the energy of the only boy I trusted, and the last time I danced I was spiraling through a room full of covert operatives holding mortality weapons. I froze and my hesitation was all that Seth needed to lean in close, pressing me up against him, his mouth at my ear, a whisper on his lips. “I guess you do know how to dance.”
