Wow! I’m so over the moon. A little while back, I entered the Author Shout Reader Ready Awards. It's been part of my goal to enter as many contests and competitions as I could afford over the last few years. Yesterday, a little email popped up to tell me In Pain and Blood had won … Continue reading I got Author Shout “Recommended Read” twice!
Whilst I am delving into To Poison a Prince, as well as considering a little extra short story between TTtH and the sequel... Dark One's Bride is in the process of having a little book blitz set up...
