Unchained by a Forbidden Love (Eternal Mates Book 15) is out now + awesome giveaway!

Belated Happy New Release Day to Fuery and Shaia in my Eternal Mates paranormal romance series!

UNCHAINED BY A FORBIDDEN LOVE, book 15 in the series, is out now. It’s time to catch up with what has been happening in this world of dark elves, shifters, fae, demons and angels…

Over the coming two weeks, I’ll be sharing the first four chapters of this book. Read on for chapter one, and details of the awesome giveaway you can enter!

 

Unchained by a Forbidden Love (Eternal Mates Book 15)

Lost to the darkness, Fuery wages a daily war against the corruption that lives within him, constantly in danger of slipping into the black abyss and becoming the monster all elves fear. Work as an assassin gives him purpose, but what reason is there to go on when he killed the light of his life—his fated mate?

Shaia has spent forty-two centuries mourning her mate. Tired and worn down, she agrees to wed a male of her family’s choosing, following tradition that has always bound her as a female and hoping she will be able to gain just a little freedom in return. But as she resigns herself to being the mate of a male she could never love, fate places an old friend in her path—one who tells her that her lost love is alive.

Will Shaia find the courage to break with tradition and leave the elf kingdom in search of her mate? And as a ray of light pierces his soul again, can Fuery find the strength to win his battle against the darkness or will it devour him and that light of their forbidden love forever?

WIP Wednesday – Unchained by a Forbidden Love complete in first draft!

eternal-mates

I had hoped to make this announcement earlier than November 1st, but I’ve finally completed the first draft of Unchained by a Forbidden Love, Fuery and Shaia’s book in the Eternal Mates series.

It’s been a long time coming. I started writing this book in the summer, before I decided to set it aside to write my three tiger shifter books in the series. I picked it up again in August, and between hitting a creative wall and real life stuff, it’s taken me until now to type the final few words on the page.

All in all, I spent 25 days working on this book, clocking up 105,000 words in that time. That’s far longer than it normally takes me to write a novel of this length, but with my upper back / neck / shoulder and arms problems (I have terrible ulnar nerve issues from too much writing – it’s like carpal tunnel, but it’s my ulnar nerves instead) I just can’t write as many words each day anymore, not without causing myself excruciating pain that slows me down even more. So, slow and steady wins the race. I miss those days of clocking up 10,000 words in a day though!

At least the first draft is done, and my second draft is chewing through a whole ream of paper now as I print it so it’s ready for me to read over once I start the editing process.

I’m not going to make any promises about the release date for this one, but expect to see it before the end of the year. Once I get a feel of the shape it’s in, I’ll be able to plan when it will be ready for sale.

But I can promise I won’t keep you waiting any longer than necessary!

As always, my comments are open, and I’d love to hear from you!

WIP Wednesday – Inspiration strikes in the strangest places!

eternal-mates

I’ve been making slow progress this last week on Unchained by a Forbidden Love, Fuery and Shaia’s book in the Eternal Mates series.

I hit another stumbling block that saw me grind to a halt. Something just wasn’t right and it was slowing me down. I wasn’t sure what it was…

Until I was in the shower this morning, and I thought about the scene I had become stuck on, and realised it needed changing. And then, I realised I needed to tweak some other things in the remaining chapters in order to make them work. I wasn’t sure about the story from this point forwards anyway, something felt off about it, just not quite right… but as I began thinking about it, it all sort of fell into place in a way it had refused to do before.

So rather than writing more for the book today, I’ve been revising the outline, moving things around, removing some stuff, and layering the new stuff in to make it all work with the plan that came to me this morning in the shower.

I’m feeling much better about the book now, and it’s finally feeling right, like this was the way it was always meant to be and I just got muddled somewhere and wrote it wrong the first time around. I can finally see the light, which is more than we can say for the hero, Fuery 🙂

I had really wanted to get the book completed in first draft this week, but I still have another 10 chapters to write, so I’m thinking it’s going to be done by end of next week, and then I’ll move on to editing it.

I also have an update for my audio books! I’ve completed my check of Awakened by a Demoness, and once the final edits are back from my narrator, I’ll be ready to hit the go button on this audio book and it will be in stores a couple of weeks later. I’m thinking it will be available at the end of the month. I’m about to start listening through Haunted by the King of Death, and my awesome narrator has already begun work on Turned by a Tiger. It’s all go!

In the meantime, Possessed by a Dark Warrior is now available and I’ll be updating my website with links for the audio book as they become available. Yay!

Wish me words!

As always, my comments are open, and I’d love to hear from you!

WIP Wednesday – Unchained by a Forbidden Love Update

eternal-mates

I took a break from writing Unchained by a Forbidden Love to treat myself to a little Staycation back in September, but now I’m back at it and I’m making progress on Fuery and Shaia’s book in the Eternal Mates series.

Progress is slower than I would like, and I’ve been struggling a little. Sometimes, it’s hard for an author to constantly pump out words. I like to think of my creativity as a sort of tank. When it’s full, I have the fuel to go wild and go fast, and words flow effortlessly onto the page. When it’s empty, I find myself fighting for each word, and the energy to put them on the page.

With Fuery’s book, my tank is fluctuating between full and empty so quickly it’s dizzying! On Monday, I managed to hit my quota of 6000 words, bringing Unchained by a Forbidden Love up to 55,000 words in total and leaving me with 12 chapters to write. Yesterday was my day off. Today, I’m staring at the page where I left off and trying to muster some energy, a little bit of fuel in that tank, just enough to get my going.

My mind is all over the place right now, which isn’t helping. I’m not talking about the writerly things I have to do, like putting my newsletter together or checking the audio edition of Awakened by a Demoness. I’m talking, planting spring bulbs in my garden because the weather looks like it will stay dry and I have a stack of bulbs that need to go in ASAP, or planning our vacation to Canada that will be happening next spring/summer to celebrate my 40th (I’ve dreamed of going to Canada since I was small). It’s all there, tempting me to ignore that line in my planner that says I should write 6000 words on Unchained by a Forbidden Love today.

I’m sure you’re all familiar with real life getting in the way of doing the things you want to do / should be doing!

I think getting this blog post ticked off my list will help, but I feel finding my focus today is going to be a fight. I’ll find it somehow though, even if it’s only enough to write a couple thousand words.

Hopefully by my next WIP Wednesday post, I’ll be able to say I’m now at 80,000 words done…

Wish me words!

As always, my comments are open, and I’d love to hear from you!

Manday Hotties – So Bleu for you

This week, I’m still thinking about heroes from my Eternal Mates series of paranormal romance books.

This time, it’s Bleu on my mind. I’m thinking about him today because I just hit the big old approve button on the audio book version of story Possessed by a Dark Warrior. My narrator has done an amazing job on this one, and you’re going to LOVE it!

So, here’s some hunks to get you thinking of Bleu while you wait for the audio book to hit stores…

All of these guys are just the way I picture Bleu. They’re dark, dangerous and damned sexy!

What do you think? Do they match your image of Bleu?

As always, my comments are open, and I’d love to hear from you!

Manday Hotties – A little bit of Fuery

We all need a little inspiration, and I always used to love posting my Manday Hotties every Monday, so I’m bringing it back whenever I have the time, which will hopefully be every week! Some weeks, I’ll focus on character inspiration, and other weeks I’ll do celebrity specials or themes.

This week, I’m thinking Fuery. He’s on my mind every day at the moment as I’m writing his book, UNCHAINED BY A FORBIDDEN LOVE, in the Eternal Mates series. I like to think that if these hot hunks had longer hair, they would be the perfect candidate to play Fuery, my dark and dangerous elf.

These hotties have the perfect build for Fuery, and the right looks, and even the dark hair. They just need it a little longer, and those ears a little pointier!

What do you think? Do they match your image of Fuery?

As always, my comments are open, and I’d love to hear from you!

When Inspiration Strikes – The Power of Music

Sometimes, I find inspiration in the simplest things. It can be subtle, like a stirring in the back of my mind that I don’t really notice at first, and it can be a thunderbolt. It can strike me hard, right down to my soul.

Today, I was looking around on iTunes for new music, something that seems to happen with alarming regularity… I’m a music whore. Honestly, I can buy albums and listen to them non-stop, well beyond the point where most people would be sick of hearing the same tunes. But, I find myself quickly aching for something new, something fresh. I have so much music, I could probably find that fresh, new feel among the albums and bands I haven’t listened to for a while.

I digress. Let’s get back to why I suddenly felt the need to blog.

So, I’m looking on iTunes, scoping out all my favourite bands (Seether, 30 Seconds to Mars, Red, The Starting Line, Tupelo Honey, 3 Doors Down, Lifehouse and the list goes on) and I’m finding nothing new… so I’m going to give up.

And then I see in the list of similar bands to one of my favourites that an OLD favourite, Breaking Benjamin, has a new ablum out after forever and ever and ever (yeah, it’s been a while, I’m not forgiving them for that). So I check out the new album, and…

OH. MY. GODS!

It’s like a thunderbolt, and it hits me hard in my soul.
