Bedevilled - Audiobook Out Soon!

Image
Bedevilled was the first ever novel I wrote, way back in 2009. I was originally toying with the idea of writing a story about a super mum; a woman who gets superpowers, and she's a mother. But then I realised a mother doesn't need super powers to be a hero. Parents do heroic things every day. Although I would have incorporated that into my Supermum novel as well. On second thought I will write that book, some day. 
Anyway, Bedevilled is my supernatural chicklit novel about the devil who is a woman. I have a thing about writing powerful women, even if my books aren't supernatural. Every day women have power too. So yeah, Bubbles is the devil, but she doesn't know it. Her memory was stolen. She's gotta get it back somehow, and that's just what she does, in this very novel. It was super fun to write. So many hellish shenanigans involving demons and angels, trips to both heaven and hell. Just all over the universe and beyond!
It's available as an ebook and in p…

JUDE - A Coming of Age Short Story

Image
The year was 1990 and Jude wanted to become a real man by cutting off his long hair. That's not the true way he's going to become a man. His girlfriend might have to help him see that. Somehow, they would realise how things that go wrong can shape who we are. Things can go right, if only they think on it. Feel what's happened. Give in to the love.

Click here to get JUDE for free or buy it on Amazon, Smashwords, or Kobo for only .99p (¢) to support me. Thank you and happy reading.

Twin Forest

Image
Twin Forest is the mid-western north American town I created as the setting for my first ever novel: Eve Eden vs. the Zombie Horde.

I am so pleased that my first ever novel is being turned into an audiobook for download. I've blogged about my excitement over my books being made into audio, and that thrill still hasn't waned! It's because I never thought I'd get any of my books into audio, and now there's only a couple more that need narrating, and then my entire collection of 17 titles (to date), will be available to listen to as well. But my first book is also already available as an ebook and in paperback. I was so proud of this book when it was first released way back in 2011. Unfortunately I was bullied online with the release of my first ever novel, so it set me back as an indie author. Oh well, I've come a long way since that fateful year. Still have indefinite ways to go yet though.

Enjoy Eve Eden vs. the Zombie Horde in paperback and ebook now. Right h…

It's Autumn Time

Image
I was going to write a new quick autumn short story, but then I realised I'm hella tired. So instead I'll highlight an autumnal piece of poetry I sort of wrote in my novel Trouble in Paradise. I couldn't help myself really, when I wrote it. This song usually pops into my mind round this time of year. Mormons might recognise it. "Autumn Time" is an LDS primary song that goes a little something like this:

I look out the window, and what do I see? 
Grey clouds, wind and rain, staring back at me. 
Spring has brought us such a dull surprise, 
Rain, sleet and sometimes snow, horizontally into my eyes. 
Sitting here eating this chocolate treat, 
a lunch time snack that tastes so sweet. 
Choc isn't good for my thighs, 
cloudy skies make me cry. 
I'm off!

Okay so I completely twisted the lyrics to the original song, but it's sung in my head to the same tune. Apart from the end bit that doesn't rhyme at all. Hahaha.

But yeah, my main character in this novel wants t…

One Million Words of Fiction

Image
I love word counts. I like to look back and see how many words of fiction I've actually written and published. So that's what I do, from time to time I add up my word counts.


To date I've written 720,720 words of fiction. Funny that it's seven-two-zero twice, haha. And this amount of words means I have 279,280 words to go to reach 1,000,000 fiction words written. I'm counting totals of my novels and story collections. Mainly novels, I have 2 story collections.
Currently I have 8 novel projects on the go. Well, I'm writing them one at a time. I always have new ideas that pop into my head. I've stopped writing them down though, because it's a never ending list and I need achievable goals. I like setting goals in life and my word count of 1,000,000 is for the purpose of skill. I figure I'll come into my writing properly after achieving 1 million fiction words. And we all know how to get better at something: by doing it. And doing it better every time. …
