Angel's Shadow - Pinterest Board


I've been busy making another Pinterest board for my forthcoming novel, Angel's Shadow.  There are a few new characters and a few surprises!  Take a look HERE...

I'm kind of addicted to Pinterest.  I love how I can drool over my dream wardrobe of shoes and dresses, learn new crafts, tricks and tips and pick up great new recipes.  I've found I don't need to buy magazines anymore because I can put my feet up, use the Pinterest app on my tablet and check out all the wonderful things my friends are sharing on their boards.  It's also great for hearing about special offers and of course great new books to read from indie authors ;)

Anyway, no rest for the wicked.  I'm back writing again, I'm playing around with idea I've had for a short story about a goth and a vampire, but of course there is a twist...

Angel's Shadow - The Blurb


I hope you all enjoyed Read an eBook Week.  Copies of Heaven Knows This Time and Another Perfect Angel were practically flying off the Smashwords servers!  I'm delighted to have reached so many people and I would really appreciate your feedback.  If you have the time to rate my books or leave a little review that would be very much appreciated!

I'm getting closer to releasing Angel's Shadow, the third book in the Heaven Knows trilogy.  Today I wrote the blurb.  It's harder than it looks summarising a whole novel in a few words, especially when you don't want to give the plot away.  What do you think?

Angel's Shadow

Unknown Pleasures are back from their US tour and Angel is glad to have Miles home until her world is rocked by a shocking discovery.  She's pregnant, but Miles isn't the father. 

Tensions are high and Angel struggles to make sense of everything as events unfold.  A singer goes missing, a body is found and Angel wonders if her nightmares hold the key to what happened.  All Miles wants to do is protect her but he's busy fighting his own battles.  Fame has gone to Jamie's head, he's mixing with the wrong people and jeopardising the future of the band. 

Is this the end for Unknown Pleasures?  Will love tear them apart or can Angel and Miles rebuild their unique family.

Angel's Shadow is the third book in the Heaven Knows Trilogy.

Angel's Shadow - Sneak Preview


I hope you're enjoying Read an eBook Week!  I've been busy putting the finishing touches on the third book in the Heaven Knows trilogy.

It's called Angel's Shadow and it's a little darker and more intense than the previous two books.  The characters struggle with some pretty challenging issues but as always there is romance, drama and a few funny moments.

It's not quite ready for release just yet.  I've still got run through it one last time to check for those elusive typos but here's a little teaser from the first chapter...

Angel's Shadow

My finger was shaking as I typed the number into my phone.  Fear was consuming me but I knew this was something I had to do and it really couldn't wait.  I hit dial and waited for an answer.  The phone rang three times before someone picked up.  I tried to speak but my mouth was dry.  I coughed to clear my throat, I could barely bring myself to say the words.
"Hi, my name is Angel Denby.  I'd like to make an appointment for a termination, please."  My voice sounded squeaky and strange.  
"Certainly.  Have you had the pregnancy confirmed?" the receptionist asked me.
"Yes, my GP ran a test and it was positive," I replied.
"And how far along are you?"
"5 weeks."
"OK, would 9:45 on Tuesday morning be suitable for you?"
"Yeah, that's great.  Thank you."
I sighed in relief.  I felt so shaky, my knees gave way and I collapsed onto the sofa in my apartment.  I was so scared.  I didn't want to be doing this but I had no choice.  I took a deep breath and tried to calm myself down.  I hardly had chance to collect my thoughts before the apartment door opened.
"So this is where you've been hiding!" said Miles as he walked in carrying our one year old daughter, Scarlet, in his arms.  I reached across the coffee table and quickly closed the lid of my laptop so Miles wouldn't see the abortion clinic website on the screen.
"Mumum!" Scarlet babbled and held her arms out to me.  I smiled and took her from Miles.
"So how was toddlers?" I asked.
"It was good.  Scarlet was running around with a dolls pram most of the time, weren't you?  She had her juice and a biscuit but she wasn't brave enough to try the slide."
"Aw, never mind Scarlet, maybe next week, eh?" I said, kissing her head.  She gave me a big cheeky grin.  I smiled back at her.  She was such a happy baby.  I loved being a mum to her, which made what I was doing even harder, but there was no way I could let this pregnancy continue.  The sooner it was over the better.
