News, and stuff

I know, I know, I've been slacking off lately, not keeping my promise to update my blog more regularly, but with good reason, I promise. I've been busy with a secret project, but more on that later.
I have some great news to share! First off, Mask blog tour ends up today and it has been fantastic! The reviews the book got are so amazing that some of them made me all misty-eyed and warm inside. I'm amazed and beyond happy with the incredible support my book had received, from both fans of Dance and people who'd never read any of my books before. 
I have to share this quote from one of the reviews, because it's so important to me that I could change even one person's mind about accepting people as they are:

I’m not a fan of feminising a male character in m/m romance and at first I felt this was happening to Penn with the dressing in silk etc, but it wasn’t until I grasped and understood this diverse and wonderful character that he is that it all clicked into place. I felt kind of ashamed to put that assumption in my head and loved the message in this book in that everyone is unique and are there to be accepted for who they are.

Another great thing that happened over the past few weeks was that Dance got nominated in the MM Romance Readers Choice awards in two categories - Best Cover Art and Best Performance/Visual Arts! Thank you to whoever nominated my book - I feel so honoured. 

And, last but not least, about that secret project. I've been working on a Christmas novella about all four of my boys for a couple of weeks now. It's called Dreaming of Snow and will be released in December - the exact date to be announced soon! Click on the cover to add it on Goodreads.

Adam Fischer doesn’t believe in second chances. Heartbroken after his lover Charlie leaves him to chase his music career in L.A., Adam is convinced that meaningless one-night-stands are all life has in store for him. 

Until fate drops Penn Shields in his lap. 

Penn is a young, talented designer fresh out of college who has just landed his dream job as a wardrobe assistant in Queen Victoria theatre, where Adam is performing in a popular musical. 

He’s also Charlie's brother. 

The last thing Penn wants is to follow in his brother’s footsteps, especially since they haven’t spoken in years. However, the attraction he feels for Adam grows with each day, and soon resisting it proves to be futile. 

As Adam and Penn get to know each other intimately, they both realise that first impressions may be deceiving, and that, sometimes, second chances come in the same packaging.

3 days until Mask is out!!!!

I'm freaking out, big time. Just 3 days until Mask is officially released into the world. 3 days until my book takes a life on its own. 3 days until people start loving it, hating it, and letting me know all about it. 3 days until the book I worked so long on will be read by so many people (judging by the preorder count).
It's scary. It's nerve-racking. It's exhilarating.
To celebrate the fact that I managed to write another book - a fact that will never seize to amaze me - I've organised a little Facebook event where we're going to party non-stop for almost 24 hours. There will be special appearances and takeover by some of my author friends, including Kora Knight and Nicola Haken, as well as lots of games and giveaways with fun prizes.


Like what you see? Visit the Facebook Event page and join the party! The grand prize of the day will be a MASK paperback. The winner will be chosen from every single person who commented under any of the posts.

Isn't it gorgeous?

3 days, guys! 3 days!!!!
