eBookSoda Promo

My book is being featured on Friday August 1st 2014 at eBookSoda, a new readers’ site where they’ll send you ebook recommendations tailored to your taste. http://www.ebooksoda.com.

Amazon Countdown Deal for Forgotten (YA Paranormal)

Forgotten (YA Paranormal) is on a countdown deal at 99c/99p on both Amazon US & Amazon UK for the next five days.

Amazon – Forgotten (In The Shadows, Book One)

Amazon UK – Forgotten (In The Shadows, Book One)

Forgottenlrg

Sycamore Heights, where everyone keeps a deadly secret.

On the surface Katrina Harvey is like any other 17-year-old about to start their senior year but not everything is quite as it seems. After being violently attacked she loses her memory and now has no idea who is friend, foe, or – most importantly – that she happens to be a 235-year-old vampire.

Now Katrina is being stalked by someone, or something, who doesn’t want her to remember her past and will do anything to keep it that way.

Sixteen-year-old Suzanne Harvey was left distraught when her older sister, Katrina, disappeared two centuries ago. Suzanne was turned into a werewolf soon afterward and ever since that day she has been focused on finding her sister. A twist of fate leads her to Sycamore Heights, the same town that Katrina now lives. Now, as Suzanne gets closer to revealing secrets from the past, someone from the present doesn’t like what she could unearth, even if that means they drive her to the brink of insanity to keep the secrets forgotten.

Witchy Halloween Promo

For the next three days (30th, 31st October & 1st November) I am taking part in a witchy/paranormal promo.

Some of you might be thinking “Witches? Your book is about vampires & werewolves, not witches!” Well, I do have one scene in Forgotten where a witch is referenced in passing, but (and this is a spoiler for book two) witches will feature more prominently in the next book in the In The Shadows series. I’m making good progress with book two although it’ll be a while before it’s released, but luckily for me this promo also includes paranormal books and Cate Dean included my novel. 🙂

You can find out more information on the promo here. You can also enter a rafflecopter giveaway here and win some fabulous prizes such as Amazon giftcards, books, or keyrings.

Also, for those who patiently waited for the next post in my behind the scenes series, well, the wait is almost over as tomorrow I will be posting all about my werewolves.

Take Care

Cover Reveals, Strange Fate & Other News

I know that I haven’t been updating this blog regularly and I apologize for that, but things have been happening behind the scenes that have kept me from blogging.

One of the things is that Forgotten has been updated with over two thousands words added to the story. I will be contacting Amazon soon and hopefully they will make it possible for everyone that has already purchased a copy to be able to get the updated version. I will let everyone know when the update is available and how to get it.

Another new thing is that the book also has a new gorgeous cover (which you can see below). As much as I loved the original cover, I decided that something was missing so I hope that everyone adores the new cover as much as I do.

Forgotten

Speaking of new covers, here is a sneak peek at the cover of a Novelette that I will be releasing within the next six months (hopefully sooner). I will release more details regarding this project nearer to the time, although what I will say is that this Novelette is set in the same “world” as the In The Shadows series but is part of a separate series.

Reapers_667x1000

As you can see the series title is omitted from the cover. I will reveal that later along with other details (as I stated above).

Strange Fate News

I see in my stats that I get a lot of people searching for Strange Fate and the only news I have at the moment is that the paperback/hardback will be released in the UK, Canada, Germany & France on 31st December 2013. I searched for the availability in the US and the only date I got was 1st February 2014.

Anyway, this got me thinking; Would anyone be interested in a giveaway of Strange Fate in paperback along with some some other prize(s) early next year?

More details to come. 🙂

Other News

Last year I promised I would blog behind the scene posts and the next one up would have been about my werewolves. I apologize for this post never being posted but, due to unforeseen circumstances, I lost most of my notes regarding my werewolves family tree which is making it hard for me to do the post I originally wanted. At the moment, I am going back through the notes I have to recreate all the lost information. I am truly sorry if anyone was looking forward to that particular post but it will be posted as soon as I am able to, although I can’t give an expected date at this moment in time.

The moral to all this is always back up important information because it will save you hours of trying to look for it on your computer as well as a few sleepless nights.

Happy Reading!

Catherine
