Yes, I must be crazy. I'm doing it all again.
Virtually There Book Fest, a book signing that's held entirely online and is completely free to attend, is back for a second year!
I had so much fun last time that I've decided to run Virtually There again, only this time it's revamped, improved, and I have some new ideas.
So, why don't you join me and a host of authors for 3 days of takeovers, interviews, and fun from the comfort of your home. There will be something for everyone, since we have everything from New York Times & USA Today Bestsellers to new indies you need to discover on our list. And you can also buy signed paperbacks or bookplates from our attending authors and have them shipped straight to your door.
Virtually There Book Fest 2017 is happening from July 21st - 23rd.
You can join the event page HERE.
And the group HERE.

Since One Shot, the short story I had published in the Men of Mayhem anthology, is now back in my hands,I've decided to re-release it with a new cover and blurb.
However, there's a difference.

One couple ... two rival families.
For the Salvato mafia prince and the Aletti mafia princess, being together is the ultimate betrayal. However, being apart means denying their hearts. Will Brianna and Nico take their one shot at escaping a life of crime together, or will deep-rooted family loyalties prove too much for them?
One Shot is a mafia romance recommended for 18+. It is a short story that can be read as a standalone, but I might have plans for it in the future.
False Finder is back!
I re-published this back at the start of the month, and finally it's up on all retailers.
False Finder was first published in 2015, but has now gone through a major re-edit, as well as getting a new cover and blurb. I hope you all like it!
Please be aware the False Finder is different from all of my other novels. It is an urban fantasy/dystopian thriller and has no romantic elements.
As a False Finder, Cora has been able to detect lies since she was born. But when blackmail, betrayal, and deceit are all the population has to protect themselves, it makes her dangerous. It also makes her a target.
London’s biggest criminal leader, Rogan Carvelli, has been hunting her for years. And she’d been successful in outmanoeuvring him until one careless mistake led her friends to betray her.
Sold to Carvelli, Cora is only left with the help of a secret organisation to escape. They’ve saved her before, and she thought she could trust them. However, the closer she gets to them, the clearer it becomes their motives are far from innocent.
Caught in a brutal fight between two criminal organisations, Cora must decide who the real enemy is and where her loyalties lie if she’s to survive.

Happy New Year!
I hope you all had a great Christmas and I wish you all the best for 2017.
This year is going to be an uncertain for me and my writing. Like I said in a previous blog post, I've started a degree, which is going to be full-time from February onwards. I'm not sure what the workload is going to be like yet, so I haven't made any concrete plans about new releases. However, here's what I'm hoping to achieve:
Although none of this is set in stone, I hope to have at least one new release in 2017.
I will also be attending my first couple of signings ever!
More details on the signings above can be found on my events page.
Do any of you have plans for 2017?
Every year I set myself a challenge for the number of books I want to read. Usually I can read anywhere between 100 to 290 books. However, this year I set my challenge towards the lower end of the scale at 160 since I wanted to focus on releases. Turns out that didn't work out so well considering I read 230!
Anyway, here are my top reads from 2016. I was going to keep it to 10, but some of my favourite authors released too many books for that! So here are my favourite reads of the year by 15 authors.
1) Rachel Van Dyken
Empire, The Matchmaker's Playbook, The Matchmaker's Replacement & The Bachelor Auction
2) Corinne Michaels
Consolation, Conviction, Defenceless & Say You'll Stay
