Did you catch yesterday’s cover reveal? Don’t worry if you missed it. I shall share it again…

copy-of-evo

Today’s reveal is the blurb. I spent more time on this blurb than any other book I have written. Blurbs are the work of Satan. I mean, we can write a 100k word novel, but a blurb is like pulling teeth. Well, it is for me.

EVO GHOST

This is it, folks. The  big finale. I hope I’ve done Teddie and her story justice. Only time will tell.

New Release: Train to The Edge of the Moon by Asper Blurry

MONTHLY READS ROUNDUP(1).png

A few weeks ago, I posted an ARC review for Asper Blurry’s Train to the Edge of the Moon. I thoroughly enjoyed the unique, gritty narrative and writing style, and believe Blurry to be an author to watch in the future. Find my review here.

Train to the Edge of the Moon is now available on Amazon.

cover-for-train-smallPunk is no ordinary girl who takes life as it is. She has a nasty habit of getting in troubles, she shows the middle finger to people’s prejudice and stupidity, fights against her broken identity and the corporation where she works. She always goes against the stream with her heavy, tight shoes, but still tries to be a better person. Punk’s adventurous journey to become a poet starts in a Place Without a Name, continues in Italy and London. Her train is full of laughs, reflections, modern tales about our young lives and relationships and occasional heartbreaks. You will probably love and hate Punk at the same time, but it will be difficult to forget about her wild side of the moon.

A little bit more about Train to the Edge of the Moon:

We had Kerouac’s Sal Paradise, Salinger’s Holden Caulfield, Bukowski’s Hank Chinaski and we loved and hated them at the same time. All complex, broken, intriguing guys. Ages ago. But what about a girl who would be something more than the mix of them, occasionally taking off her very short skirt and showing the middle finger to mediocrity? Who would have no money nor fame, just a job in the corporation sucking out her soul. Who would be bold and fight for her better self and the meaning in her life? The only recent female character which I can think of is Larsson’s Lisbeth Salander (but with no killing urges, haha). So, should the readers get to know my Punk, see what’s beneath the surface of a young, modern outsider? Do you think we need her in our busy, filled with social media, but somehow shallow reality? Do we want her to light up that fire in our hearts? Yes. We do!

Italy and London play an important role in Punk’s life as not only some places, but living creatures. What’s more, my great inspiration for writing this book were, other than mentioned in the beginning, TV characters such as Dr House, Hank Moody, Bojack Horseman and the crew from “Girls”. With my feminine touch, observations and personal experience Punk has risen from the ashes of strong men’s world.

“Train to the Edge of the Moon” is about all shades of young people’s reality – struggles with career, love, friendship, sex, feeling lost in the corporate machinery. It’s funny, it makes you laugh and in the next moment it gets sad and dark and you want to crawl in the corner and cry a little. It also raises controversial issues such as addictions, depression, abuse. I believe that when you start reading my book you will see that my voice is genuine, original, sometimes quirky. And it will make you reflect on things and people surrounding you. Perhaps you will see yourself in some of my characters as well.

Thrown to The Blue

big news!

The blurb for Thrown to The Blue is here!

blurb reveal.png

I’m not going to lie, this was a tricky one to write. I wanted to capture the tone of the book, add some narrative, but not give too much away. I hope I pulled it off.

The next announcemnet will be the release date, however, that is not finalised as of yet. Keep an ear out of that one.

I shall be sending out ARCs when the editing is complete, so if you are not already on my list and would like to be an ARC reviewer, please give me a shout.

World Book Day- What Are You Reading?

World Book Day is here and I couldn’t let it pass without a quick post about my current reads.

I have just finished beta reading Sarina Langer’s debut novel, ‘Rise of the Sparrows’. What a thrilling, entrancing read. I shall say no more… okay, I will- Loved it! Keep your eyes peeled for publication dates for this gem of a book.

Colossus by Jette Harris

colossusBlurb: Four high school seniors find themselves locked in a house, forced to entertain the whims and appetites of an unpredictable man for one month. He calls himself Avery Rhodes. They call him Colossus, the looming, threatening figure who seems to be teetering on the edge of sanity. Heather Stokes, no stranger to tragedy, does all she can to protect her classmates, going as far as sacrificing herself time and again. As the month winds down, both Heather and Rhodes realize that they are in over their heads, and it is possible that none of them will survive. COLOSSUS is a brutal psychological thriller, with characters reminiscent of Alice Hoffman, but a plot worthy of Karin Slaughter.
Trigger warning: Sexual violence, torture, suicide.

Nowhere by Jon Robinson

nowhere.jpgBlurb: Alyn, Jes, Ryan and Elsa are Nowhere. A concrete cube in the middle of a dense forest. Imprisoned inside are one hundred teenagers from all over the country. They’re all criminals. But none of them remember committing any crimes. Who has put them there. What do their captors want? And how will they ever break free . . . ?

evo-shift-jpegBlurb: She killed him, but did it make a difference?

Her kind has been exposed, abused, and segregated, and now Teddie Leason is top of Britain’s most wanted list at just nineteen. Teddie has to decide whose side she is on, what she fights for, and whether it’s worth her life.

How can she protect the man she adores, the Uncle who has taken her under his wing, and her unfaltering friends, when she can barely take care of herself? Dealing with new power and a history that has long since been forgotten, has rendered the world’s most powerful EVO vulnerable and at risk.

When will she be dealt a winning hand? Could a clandestine, renegade group of EVO change not only her fate, but that of everyone affected by this unprecedented war? And how does Teddie fit in a world bracing for a shift of unfathomable magnitude?

Thank you to everyone who pre-ordered. I hope you enjoy EVO Shift as much as EVO Nation. I have already received a message from one reader who has dropped everything to read EVO Shift today. This makes me feel all giddy inside- seriously, I love my readers!
