#FreeviewFriday #BlueMoon!

Man, it seems like forever since my last Freeview Friday post, and I’m mega excited to finally be able to share some stuff with y’all again. If you recall, I made mention of alternating the weeks between snips from Blue Moon and Escort to Insanity from the Make Believe antho as they both release at the same time? Well, I think I will likely still do that, though they won’t necessarily be weekly. It depends on what else I have going on in my life. But I shall defo try my best.

So first up for your perusal is Blue Moon. If you read the excerpt, where I shared the opening a few weeks back, you’ll know that Jem arrived at the building site to find a dodgy bird watching some of the pack. This next scene I’ll share comes in closely after that. Hope you enjoy:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The door swung open, and Josh entered, his green eyes sparkling beneath a mess of shaggy, dark blond curls, and a wide grin spread across his face.
My gaze flittered to Sean.
His expression matched his pack brother’s as though Josh had impressed him with his ability to chat with a young, attractive female.
Poppy and I exchanged another glance—a hoard of unspoken communication passing between us. Knowing Poppy also had a bad vibe about the stranger made me feel a little better.
Josh unwrapped his second burger and shovelled half into his mouth as he leaned against the counter beside me.
I peered up at him. “Who was she?”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yep, sounds like Jem’s still bugged by the female stranger. ;)

I hope you enjoyed this weeks snippet. See you next time for another round of FVF and peek at what’s in store for Cole and Benjamin.

As I have said before, any and all are welcome to join me in this weekly shenanigan. HOWEVER, if you do so, I URGE you to keep the shared snippets short and sweet. Mine will be a maximum of TEN (10) sentences. To help identification of these posts, I shall be hashtagging them (for Twitter purposes) as #FreeviewFriday. Feel free to knick said hashtag for your own Freeview Friday posts.


Wahooo! Eternal Launch Day is HERE!

I’m so very excited to announce the official release day for Eternal is finally HERE!

Wahooo!

Eternal is NOW available. Check out the Eternal page for links to the most used vendors. And it would be great if you could also add it to your Goodreads list.

An unmarried woman living in a house of men breeds hearsay and lore. If only the villagers knew the truth.

It’s not Jem Stonehouse’s marital status that brings unwanted strangers to town. Rather, it’s that she is the only female werewolf in existence — a prize to any pack.

Sean Holloway, the love of Jem’s life, has gone to great lengths to protect her. As a new attack becomes imminent, Sean realizes he must take greater measures with Jem’s safety or risk losing her forever.

His first task must be to marry her, but a force greater than the largest werewolf stands in his way.

Her mother.

It’s VERY exciting for me to finally be able to share Sean & Jem’s full history of how it all began for them, first with Instinct and now with Eternal. Hopefully, these two Holloway Pack Prequel novellas combined will answer all of the readers questions, as well as creating a few sighs and bringing a few smiles to readers faces.

Aaaaaaaaaaaand to help promote Eternal, Instinct will be available through July at the discounted price of $.99 (or 70-ish pence). Yay! You can find the best purchase places on the Instinct Page so off you go to grab your promotional copy.

BUT, before you go, I hope you’ll be able to join me for the Eternal Blog Tour, which kick starts today with a character interview AND an E-Book giveaway of Eternal over at Known to Read.

FREEVIEW FRIDAY {ETERNAL}! #FVF

Hey all, and happy Friday. Thank you for stopping by. Today will be the last time I share a mini-excerpt from my PNR novella Eternal,   because it is Due out in 10 days! and I hope to have something new to share for the next FVF.

BUT … because this is the last Eternal FVF, I’ve decided to share not one, but two snippets.

Here you go. Still in the market place (Jem speaks first, to Jessica after she has dragged her off around a corner) …

“What on earth is wrong?”

“Elizabeth Wells.”

I rolled my eyes but with no ounce of humour. Elizabeth had never quite forgiven me for ‘snaring’ Sean, a male she had deemed worthy of herself though I suspected she never wanted him for more than a short-term venture into the unknown. “What rumour has she begun now?”

“Oh, she is sharing her usual vindictive lies, but she has evidently exhausted her supply of locals to tittle-tattle to. She has now taken to spreading her spiteful opinion to a complete stranger.”

Do we sense trouble is coming from the gossiping of ‘Elizabeth Wells’?

Let’s take a look …

“The stranger was a male?” I asked. “Are you certain?”

“I am capable of telling the difference between genders. Especially upon one … so …” Panic glistened in her eyes as she trailed off, igniting my own.

“So …?”

“Big.” She pointed over my shoulder, and as she did so, his scent swamped me.

Werewolf!

Uh-oh!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my Eternal snippets. Tune in next time to see what new stuff I have up my sleeve.

As I have said before, any and all are welcome to join me in this weekly shenanigan. HOWEVER, if you do so, I URGE you to keep the shared snippets short and sweet. Mine will be a maximum of TEN (10) sentences. To help identification of these posts, I shall be hastagging them (for Twitter purposes) as #FVF.

Midsummer’s Eve Giveaway Hop!

Hey, all, and welcome to my stop on the Midsummer’s Eve Giveaway Hop. As always I would first like to thank I am a Reader, Not a Writer and Uniquely Moi Books for hosting this hop. When you’re done here, please take a moment to click on the hop image and head over to the linky-list of participants, on whose blogs you will (guarenteed) find some awesome prizes up for grabs.

And onwards with the show.

Up for grabs today, I have ONE E-Copy of each of the Holloway Pack Prequels. 

Which means ONE lucky winner will win:

Werewolf Sean Holloway treats the village marketplace like a sexual buffet, though his charm does little to win over his latest entr e of choice. Whether because of Jem Stonehouse’s unique scent, her headstrong nonchalance, or the fact he is forbidden to see her by his pack’s rules, Sean wants her.

When Jem is nothing but flippant toward his advances, he pursues her with vigour, stealing moments alone with her without a libido-driven agenda.

The new and heady experience for him drives their relationship beyond romantic interest, and straight toward love.

That is, until Jem learns the truth about Sean’s heritage. Knowledge of the existence of werewolves leads to only one outcome: death.

In this prequel to Darkness & Light, we are taken back in time, to the very beginning of Jem and Sean’s love-across-the-centuries relationship.Did it end there? Or did Sean defy his own pack to save the woman he loves?

AS WELL AS:

An unmarried woman living in a house of men breeds hearsay and lore. If only the villagers knew the truth.

It’s not Jem Stonehouse’s marital status that brings unwanted strangers to town. Rather, it’s that she is the only female werewolf in existence — a prize to any pack.

Sean Holloway, the love of Jem’s life, has gone to great lengths to protect her. As a new attack becomes imminent, Sean realizes he must take greater measures with Jem’s safety or risk losing her forever.

His first task must be to marry her, but a force greater than the largest werewolf stands in his way.

Her mother.

Please note: You do not need to have read the other Holloway Pack stories to read, enjoy, or understand the prequels. Depending on how long the winner takes to respond, there is a chance they will receive Eternal PRE-RELEASE as it doesn’t actually launch until July 2nd–so this is your chance to be one of the first to read it!

Thank you so much for stopping by. You can find out how to enter by hopping on over to the RAFFLECOPTER FORM on the Giveaways Page of my website (sorry, but my WP blog and RC don’t get along).

Good luck!

FREEVIEW FRIDAY {ETERNAL}! #FVF

Hey all, and happy Friday. Thank you for stopping by. Today, I’ll be sharing another mini-excerpt from my PNR novella Eternal,  due out in 17 DAYS!

Following on from last week, Jem is still at the market place, though temporary separated from her sister … here’s your taste of Eternal:

As I lingered beside the bakery stand, deep inhalations drew in my favourite fragrance of the market: cottage loaves piled high next to plaits and scones. Beside me, Old Mrs Crowley pawed at the brick loaves, squeezing one after the other whilst the proprietor watched with fidgety fingers, probably hoping for her to stop.

As the sweet and warm yeasty fragrance merged with heavenly musk, I tilted my head to the side, peering around the rotund baker until my gaze locked with the dark one two rows over.

“Hey.” Sean’s greeting scarcely caused his lips to move, and would reach none other, but carried to me as surely as if he had been at my side.

Lower lip caught between my teeth, I smiled.

“Really, young lady, you should be ashamed of yourself. Can you not show a modicum of decorum?”

I turned to the ancient woman beside me, and ordering myself not to point out that leaving the house with a food stain upon ones cheek could hardly be considered dignified, dipped my chin, adopting an expression of remorse. “Apologies, Mrs Crowley. I really do try my best …” I just never seem to succeed.

I doubt I’d succeed where Sean’s concerned either. ;)

I hope you enjoyed this weeks snippet. See you next week for another round of FVF

As I have said before, any and all are welcome to join me in this weekly shenanigan. HOWEVER, if you do so, I URGE you to keep the shared snippets short and sweet. Mine will be a maximum of TEN (10) sentences. To help identification of these posts, I shall be hastagging them (for Twitter purposes) as #FVF. Feel free to knick said hashtag for your own Freeview Friday posts.


Book News: Updates & Reminders!

Happy Tuesday to you all. I thought I’d pop in a quick blog post today to remind everyone about the Darkness & Light Ebook promotion happening right now through the month of June, and to tell you about an Eternal giveaway happening over at my publisher’s blog.

First up: Darkness & Light

For all of you who haven’t yet managed to grab a copy, June is an AWESOME time to do so. Not only will you get the updated cover unique to the Ebooks, as well as the added Sean POV scenes in the back, but Darkness & Light is also on MEGA sale.

I haven’t hunted the Internet to find out exactly who has it on sale, but I know it’s currently only £1.02 over at Amazon UK (for Kindle–usually £3-something), $1.58 over at Amazon US (for Kindle–usually a cent below $5), and $0.99 over at Barnes & Noble (Nook–usually $4.99).

Secondly: the Eternal Promotion

This week, J.Taylor Publishing are giving away FIVE early copies of Eternal: Holloway Pack 0.5 (due for release July 2nd).

All you have to do to enter is comment on their BLOG POST with the agreement to read, review, and post your review of Eternal before its release date.

Simples!

So if you’re waiting on this one, or Eternal simply sounds like your cup of tea, then here’s your chance to get an early peek. But hurry, because the closing date for this one is June 15th–that’s only 3 days!

Hope you all have an awesome day!

FREEVIEW FRIDAY {ETERNAL}! #FVF

Hey all, and happy Friday. Thank you for stopping by. Today, I’ll be sharing another mini-excerpt from my PNR novella Eternal,  due out in a little over 2 weeks.

This week we see Jem and her sister on their weekly trip out to the local market place … here’s your taste of Eternal:

Dead boar held such an unpleasantly powerful aroma, nothing at all like the richness of the cooked product it became, and I switched to breathing through my mouth as Jessica and I passed the butcher’s stand.

“’Morning, Miss Stonehouse.”

We both turned toward the ruddy male, who stood poised with his cleaver above a soon-to-be-amputated trotter. His auburn hair curled across his brow, and his cheeks blushed an even deeper shade once he captured my sister’s focus, however I knew from experience she would offer him no more attention than a polite response—proven when she nodded and steered us away.

Jessica had been approached by more males than she could possibly handle in the three years since I had lived with the pack. Apparently, the locals believed one ‘brazen’ sister led to another.

Little did they know, if Jessica chose to snare them, the decision would be all hers, and they would stand no chance of escape.

Jem’s sister sounds like a right one, eh? ;)

FREEVIEW FRIDAY {ETERNAL}! #FVF

Hey all, and happy Friday. Thank you for stopping by. Today, I’ll be sharing another mini-excerpt from my PNR novella Eternal,  due out in a little over 3 weeks.

Following on from last week, we get a glimpse at just why Sean was so edgy about his wounds and the trespassers … here’s your taste of Eternal:

“I did not wish for you to feel afraid.” He stalked across the room.

Tearing my gaze from the seeping liquid, I studied the power in his body, evident in each and every movement he made, no matter how minute. From his dark mop of hair, across his muscular back, all the way down his defined legs to the tips of his toes, strength and might dominated Sean’s body like a tailored uniform. I would never feel anything but safe whilst beside him.

“The only thing I have to fear is losing you,” I said.

“Which is no less a fear than the one I hold. Is it even any different, in fact?” Before I could answer, he spun, and in three strides stood beside me. His fingers folded around mine, and he drew me to my feet, taking my face between his palms until I tumbled heart first into his dark, glossy stare. “How can I protect you when I fail to defend myself?”

Aww, bless him. :)
