Deceit can be Deadly Release Party

In the meantime check out this teaser.

It took a moment for his vision to adjust to the dim light but it wasn’t hard to locate the body. Moonlight filtered in through the broken windows highlighting the mutilated remains in macabre detail.

Frozen in place, he took a
deep breath to force back the bile that rose in his throat. Even at this distance he could see the horror before him. It wasn’t the first time he’d come across such a scene. Each was burned into his brain in excruciatingly grotesque detail.

Burn marks on the ground in the shape of a large circle surrounded the body. It was the woman he’d seen earlier on the street corner. Her eyes were wide open, a look of horror on her face as she lay in a pool of her own blood. And the most telling sign of all, a gaping cavity where her heart had been.

Black magic.

He’d hoped he was wrong but there was no denying the signs. Testing the air, he picked up the scent of the killer but knew it would be of little use. There’d be no trail to follow. The malefic witch always seemed to disappear into thin air.

Firming his jaw, he approached the body to crouch beside it. Using a cloth to ensure he’d leave no finger prints behind, he checked her clutch purse for a cellphone. He might be a bastard who lived most of his life on the wrong side of the law but there was some decency left in him. An anonymous call to 911 would ensure her body wasn’t eaten by rats.

My Editor and I! An update on Dark Magic Rising.

We finally have a release date for Dark Magic Rising, which we will share with you very soon. My editor and I have been working very hard and now feel we can work to a deadline.

Dark Magic Rising’s original release date was back in November last year (2015). After undergoing surgery on my spine in May of that year, my editor and I decided to push the date back but never gave ourselves a new goal. This year my editor was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, which gave a reason to some of the health issues she couldn’t overcome. Things started to make sense, however, her health has not improved and due to fatigue and brain fog the editing was at times very slow.

Working alongside someone with fibromyalgia  has taught me patience and a little understanding into living with a chronic illness. I could have taken the work elsewhere for a quicker result. But it’s never been about the speed and is more about the relationship I have with my editor. She not only puts me right when I forget about punctuation or get the words to a sentence muddled up and so on, she injects something into my work that wasn’t there before. We are a team that works well, even if I nag her a little when she is having a low week.

We are planning on hosting a cover reveal within the next few weeks and have decided to put the book up for pre-order from the cover reveal event. This was a huge decision for us and in some sense is a little daunting. We aim to put our best foot forward and simply do the best we can because this is about supporting someone and not just looking them over because they don’t fit in with your time table.

Bodelia's Anguish has been available for a year! How time flys

A year ago today ‪‎Bodelia’s Anguish was published via ‪smashwords‬. It has had an average of 37 downloads a month. I know that would look a little different if they were sales. However, I am more than pleased with its performance and I now have higher hopes for Dark Magic Rising.

If you’re interested in fantasy, it’s a short story of a little over 4,000 words. It also included a small first draft of the prologue and chapter one of Dark Magic Rising, that has a proposed publish date for this November.

Bodelia’s Anguish – The fury of a goddess betrayed is about to be unleashed on those she once loved. Will Alhanassa, the world she created, survive? Will the Immortal Council be able to sway her desire for revenge? The exciting prologue to a gripping new series.

Alhannasa, a land of beauty and diversity, created by the Most High Goddess, Bodelia. She planned that her ‘children’ those which will inhabit the world she’d made, would rule the land now the time had come for her to leave. The Immortal Council grew restless with her long absence, she knew her duty could be delayed no longer. Yet she wouldn’t completely abandon that which she had made. She would leave the Lesser Goddesses, her sisters, to watch over Alhanassa. With the aid of their magic, the mortals would surely flourish.

But even the plans of a Goddess are no match for evil. When an act of betrayal shatters Bodelia’s heart, will she be able to control the need for revenge? Or will the inhabitants of Alhanassa suffer the dire consequences of her wrath. An enthralling new series filled with action, magic, lust and love!

A huge thanks to everyone that has helped promote Bodelia’s Anguish.
