Sneaking Up on My Readers

For those of you that read the title of this post and thought this would be about me tracking down my readers' whereabouts and sneaking up on them on the street while they did their grocery shopping or caught their latest Pokemon, I'm sorry to disappoint you.

This is more to do with surprising my readers with a new release. Well, two new releases.

Hot on the heels of the launch of Someone Like You (Soulmates Saga, Book 3), I am delighted to reveal that books 3 and 4 of my paranormal/urban fantasy series, the Poison Blood series, will be released this Halloween.

The two new titles are:

Poison Blood, Book 3: Prophecy
Poison Blood, Books 4: Apocalypse

And they're both available for pre-order NOW! Yes, now.

At a low introductory price of $0.99 each!

PB3: Amazon US | Amazon UK | iBooks US | iBooks UK | B&N Nook | Kobo

PB4: Amazon US | Amazon UK | iBooks US | iBooks UK | B&N Nook | Kobo

So order your copy now, as the cost will return to its normal price of $1.49 each after its released on October 31, 2016.

Books 1 and 2 are still free to download, so if you haven't gotten into this series yet, this is the time to take the plunge.

I don't know what it is about this series of books about teen vampire Ellie Dalton, but whenever I come to publishing them, I'm always busy with other projects (as well as with life) that I don't have enough time to throw a proper launch party for them. When I released the series opener, Poison Blood, Book 1: Revelation, and the second book, Poison Blood, Book 2: Absolution, I was writing other novels and had a lot going on in my personal life, so I sort of rushed the launch process. 

I've made no secret that I regret publishing the first two books before I'd finished writing the whole series, and because of that, I've decided to release the the last two books on the same day and make them available for pre-order from the same date. I've suffered enough setbacks in life and kept my readers waiting for too long, that I just want to publish these books now that they're ready. Just in case something pops up and I can't publish the fourth book at the planned date.

If you're one of those readers that enjoy a title reveal, cover reveal, then a blurb reveal and a whole host of other launch ceromonies, I'm really sorry that I can't deliver on this occasion. I've finally overcome my writer's block and I just want to prioritise the creating and the writing. Who knows what future holds? There's no guarantee that I'll have plenty of time (or the right circumstances) to write my other books if I take a little time away from them now to market the novels that I've already written.

Hopefully with my next releases, I'll be able to launch them with a lot more finesse :)

Check out the book pages on this blog to read the blurbs, and here's a sneak peek at the two new covers:
