Supersale of A Long, Long Sleep

A Long Long SleepGood news for readers in the US – my first novel, A Long, Long Sleep, is currently on supersale in ebook format: $1.99 instead of $7.99!

See below for links of where to buy, but don’t forget that you, in many cases, don’t need an e-reader to buy and read ebooks. Kindle, for example, have a free app you can download for most devices – phones, computers, and tablets.

Spinning Thorns UK Release

My third book, Spinning Thorns, is out now in the UK!

Spinning Thorns Book Cover

Blurb:

Sleeping Beauty has woken.
The world has been renewed.
Everyone is living happily ever after . . .

Almost.

Sharp, blood-seeking thorns still surround the castle. A feud remains between those who wield magic and those who were subjected to it. And while the kingdom is divided against itself, nothing can thrive.

A rebellion may be needed – and that’s where Sleeping Beauty’s daughter comes in . . .

Pre-Release for No Life But This

My second book, No Life But This (the sequel to A Long Long Sleep), is now available for pre-order through Amazon here.No Life But This Book Cover

Blurb:

Rose spent most of her life asleep. Otto spent his as an object.

Rose Fitzroy woke from her long sleep to a changed world and new life. Her friend Otto watched her from afar, longing for what he felt he couldn’t have. But just when things seem to be going right, his own biology backfires, sending him into a deathly spiral that neither of them can stop. His only hope lies on the distant ice moon of Europa, where an experimental treatment might bring him back from the brink.

But Europa is in a state of revolution, and Otto’s brother Quin is tangled up in it. With Otto going slowly insane, and Rose haunted by ghosts of her old life, more than one world may soon be destroyed around them.
