Way back around Easter time -ish, I signed a contract for my novella, Instinct.
I’m mucho excited about this one, as this is a tale I wrote for totally selfish reasons because I had an urge to discover what made Sean Holloway tick.
So … this is a story that takes readers way back to the beginning.
In Instinct, the reader will get to understand how it all began between Jem and Sean of Darkness & Light.
And … today … I get to share the cover and blurb with the Internet world.
Let me just say, I LOVE it!
Each earlier mock cover that was sent for me to check out got a kind of ‘Ummm’ reaction from me.
Then this one came, and my response upgraded to ‘oooooh’.
I’m not going to tell you what sold it for me. If you study it well enough, you’ll figure it out for yourself.
So, I guess I’d better give you the chance to do exactly that then, eh?
LADIES & GENTS, I GIVE YOU INSTINCT: A HOLLOWAY PACK PREQUEL:
The most important people to an author are their readers.
Then you’ll understand why—with every single comment I’ve received about Darkness & Light, every Tweet I’ve spotted by someone who’s reading my book, every remark that has been left on my Facebook page or in reviews—I’ve taken notice and … listened.
And what have I learned?
The ladies have a real (female) b***r for Ethan.
Maybe it’s his dark exotic looks. Maybe it’s the ripple of muscle that everyone knows is ever present. Maybe it’s his brute strength, or his (self-taught) wit, or that tunnel-vision-focus and steady control he has when a task is at hand …
Whatever the reason, the ladies seem to LOVE him.
So what is this all about then? you ask.
This … is my opportunity to give a little something back … to you.
This is your chance to ask Ethan Holloway anything you’d like.
Anything you’ve ever wanted to know about the main fighter of the Holloway Pack, you can ask away … and I’ll make him suck it up and answer … because I can.
Questions can either be left in the comments section of this blog post, or they can be sent privately through the Contact Me form on my website. Either way, they will be included and answered and the results of the Q&A with Ethan Holloway will be posted exactly one week from today (3rd August).
So … whaddaya waiting for?
Darkness & Light is available at the following outlets:
Today, I should have been blogging about my launch party.
However, due to a horrible incident, my plans had to be postponed.
Initially, I had a duel evening of celebrations planned. Thursday evening: a meal with some close friends. Friday evening: a buffet for a wider circle of friends and family.
On Thursday evening, just as I, Mr B and our two Mini-me’s arrived at the first night’s venue, Mr B received a phone call to let him know his brother had crashed his motorbike.
Yeah, it was as bad as it sounds.
In fact, it was a whole lot worse.
X-rays and CT scans showed my brother-in-law had fractured his femur, tibia, fibula, collar bone; he’d smashed his hip and pelvis; he’d cracked five ribs, which had resulted in a punctured/collapsed lung; and he had three vertebral fractures.
As you can imagine, Mr B pretty much failed to breathe on hearing the verdict, to the point I thought he was going into shock and I’d be calling an ambulance for him.
On Thursday, I sent my guests home, and made the calls to all who were coming on Friday to explain that the celebration had been called off. Obviously, due to the reason, everyone was very understanding.
But now, a few days have passed. We’ve visited my brother-in-law a couple times in hospital and he appears to be slowly improving. And I have finally found enough peace through all the white noise in my head to update my blog.
So … I thought I’d share what did happen last week that I wasn’t, at the time, emotionally in a position to share.
1) Cake! Yeah, we had cake. I ordered it for my Friday celebration. It was beautiful. And despite not getting the opportunity to show it off to everyone, it sure did taste delicious. Check it out!
