All I can say is I'm sorry. I've been slack, I know. I actually have a series of blog posts all planned and plotted. If it all goes according to plan, they'll be witty and informative and keep you glued from start to end. There's just one thing I'm missing to do it. Time. It's the big killer isn't it? Obviously, I've had a crazy, hectic publishing schedule and it got that little more crazy hectic when my man Declan decided that he wasn't happy with just three novels in addition to his novella. Noooo, he had to have an extra one. One in the middle of two that were written in fact, just to make things extra interesting. Especially when it meant that the book needed to be ready in time for an editing date that's already booked in--and the book wasn't even half written yet with the additions he demanded.
So that's why for the last five or so weeks, I've been spending every spare word I've had working on this middle book for Declan. Thankfully, the first draft is done. Writing to such a tight deadline doesn't work wonders for creative brain, but it did prove to me that I can do it when push comes to shove, and it meant that I was actually creating brand spanking new words for a while rather than juts running over endless rounds of edits. What this means though is there will now be two more Declan Reede books rather than one. Decipher will be released in March 2016, and Declare will be sometime in either April/May. Yay, more Declan. He's a butt, but a lovable one.
Leading up to December, I have a fair bit of writing, editing, and planning to do, so the blog may be a little quiet--although hopefully a little less quite than it has been--but in the new year that should all change.
So what has been happening? There's a few sales and stuff going on at the moment.
Decide (Declan Reede: The Untold Story) book 0.5 is free
Strap in, get ready to start your engines and see where it all began.
From an early age, Declan Reede’s only goal was to race in the ProV8 Championship Series. One thing he couldn’t anticipate was that a blistering kiss shared with his best friend, Alyssa Dawson, might derail his plans.
While he knows things between them will never be the same, it’s impossible to predict just where the road will take them, or how rocky it might get.
Will he decide to fight for love or follow his dreams?Buy Links:

Four years after making the decision to leave his home town behind, all of Declan Reede's dreams have come true. Unapologetically foul-mouthed and well known for his off-track antics, his success seems unstoppable. At least until Queensland Raceway and a chance sighting of the girl who once held his heart. Now, getting around the track seems an impossible battle as he struggles to return to his previous form. With his career racing downhill faster than his V8 on Mount Panorama, there's more than just his reputation on the line.
What will it take to put the brakes on his decline?

Clay Jacobs harbors a dangerous secret. Evie, the object of his teenage obsession, isn’t human. But instead of destroying the supernatural threat, as he’s been instructed by the Rain—the organization he belongs to—he let her escape.
The memory of the one who got away not only haunts him but holds him captive and assaults him nightly. Unable to escape the visions, and the guilt, he races across the country to locate her and correct his mistake. Instead of the monster he expects, he finds a woman who ensnares him with her charms. In her embrace, Clay dares to imagine a different life. One free of the constant need to kill.
His family—and the oaths he made to them—is not so easy to escape though. When the past catches up to him, it won’t only be his happiness but also the life of his lover at risk. What will it take to free himself from the grip of the Rain?
