To Be a Good Writer…

Sage advice from the man himself –

To be a good writer, I believe that one has to read a lot of books. Fifty a year would be a good place to start, but twenty five would work... Stephen King.

I shall be putting this good advice into practice over the holiday season.

Merry Christmas everyone x

The January Sales Just Got Better….

My first post of the New Year. No I’m not going to look back at 2016 (ever). What I am going to do is treat you to something lovely. From January 2nd through to January 8th the Kindle edition of Forbidden Colours is only £1.99 in the UK and $2.46 in the USA. Happy New Year lovely people.

It’s All About The Book!

Today, December 8th 2016 is the release day of my second novel ‘Forbidden Colours’. It has been an amazing journey getting from ‘What If?’ to ‘The End.’ in just under 12 months. It has challenged me, shook me up, rearranged me and put me back together again. At times, I was so far out of my comfort zone I felt as if I was skydiving without a parachute! Enough of my waffle – I shall save that for another blog post! Today is all about the book.
Forbidden Colours started as a romance with elements of suspense. My completed offering is something much darker and psychological. Yes, the romance is still there however, the final version is ultimately a thriller with elements of romance. If you like romance – you will like this book, if you like suspense – you will like this book, if you like thrillers – you will like this book. If however you like nail biting, edge of your seat drama – you will love this book.
All I ask is you give it a try and, as it’s Christmas, a review on Amazon or Good Reads would be fabulous too!

What if your memories were not your memories? What if the drug hailed as a cure became a curse and ultimately your destruction?
Midori Yates works for pharmaceutical giant KLD. The launch of new drug Centoria has revolutionised the treatment of amnesia, with outstanding results. Trials exploring its use in the treatment of Alzheimer’s are on the horizon. But is it really as good as the data suggests?
Neurologist Dr. Nick Campbell has seen amazing results with his patients and is ready to believe in Centoria’s transformational abilities…that is until his patients start displaying strange and worrying symptoms with drastic results. Determined to uncover the truth, Midori and Nick find a conspiracy that is to have devastating consequences for both of them. A dark world threatens to engulf them. Can they survive?
This contemporary thriller will have you turning the pages long into the night

 

Tuesday Spotlight – Keri’s Christmas Wish by Pamela S Thibodeaux

This is my first Christmas post of the season. To get us rolling I’d like to introduce my author friend Pamela S Thibodeaux. Welcome Pamela :). Pamela’s new release  Keri’s Christmas Wish is a wonderful romantic tale which will leave you wanting more. Here Pamela tell’s us about her journey to writing Kerri’s Christmas Wish. Over to you Pam –

“I am 100% panster so when I sat at the computer with one scene in mind, Keri scrolling through her newsfeed and grumbling “bah humbug” over the ‘Christmas in July’ propaganda, I had absolutely NO idea where the story was going or what would happen.

I was introduced to Energy Medicine a couple of years ago and find the whole concept of healing the body – or actually the body healing itself by correcting energy imbalance–fascinating. Along with EM, I’ve discovered the power of positive thoughts and prayers (see: You can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay). Add to that, my belief in the afterlife and the books & movies affirming those beliefs, and well, this story practically wrote itself. What is so amazing and encouraging for me is that Keri’s Christmas Wish is the first romantic story I’ve written in its entirety since my husband passed away in 2009. Oh, I’ve had things published that were already in the works, but other than a couple NF pieces, it is the only thing written from start to finish. Hopefully this means I’m in a much better place emotionally and other books/novellas/stories are sure to follow”.

For as long as she can remember, Keri Jackson has despised the hype and commercialism around Christmas so much she seldom enjoys the holiday. Will she get her wish and be free of the angst to truly enjoy Christmas this year?

 A devout Christian at heart, Jeremy Hinton, a Psychotherapist, Life Coach, Spiritual Mentor and Energy Medicine Practitioner has studied all of the world’s religions and homeopathic healing modalities. But when a rare bacterial infection threatens the life of the woman he loves, will all of his faith and training be for naught?

 

Thanks Pam, a wonderful tale which is perfect for the Christmas season. Here’s a snippet to whet your appetite… Continue reading “Tuesday Spotlight – Keri’s Christmas Wish by Pamela S Thibodeaux”
