‘Asylum’ ~ Update

It’s just over two months since I hit the scary publish button on Asylum – and I am absolutely delighted to say that the feedback has been fantastic and more than I could have hoped for.
As you know, I was a little apprehensive about releasing Asylum because it is so different to my other books – a world away in fact – and I wasn’t totally sure how my readers would react to such a genre change – but thankfully it has been well received – Phew!
I am glad now that I removed some of the more darker elements of the story – as I don’t believe that the book lacks without them, and I think that they would have been a step too far into the realms of gory and disturbing, which the book just didn’t need. I am happy that I have managed to get the balance right, as I really did agonise over it.
Here’s hoping the next few months will bring even more great reviews (because those buggers are really hard to get) and Asylum keeps on moving 🙂

Waking in Melrose Manor Psychiatric Hospital, Emily Baxter is shocked to discover that she stands accused of the death of her mother, and that her father has all but abandoned her.
As Emily struggles to recall any memories of her life prior to Melrose Manor, she remains adamant that she is not the cause of her mother’s death, she is not crazy, and she will prove her innocence, even if it breaks her.
Facing the possibility of never being freed, and enduring daily abuse at the hands of the nursing staff, Emily must stay strong if she is to fight back and escape.
Emily has many questions, but each one is met with more lies, more confusion and more abuse.
Is her mother really dead?
Would her father have had her committed to a mental asylum?
Why can’t she remember anything?
Can she trust anyone?

Tiffany – the goodie you love to hate

I am still working my way through Decadently Discontinued – book 5 in my Winging It series – (the last ever Tiffany book) and I think that I am purposely taking my time with it because secretly I don’t want it to end.
Tiffany has been a great character to write, and it will be strange to not have a Tiffany plot or one liner in my head for her.
There are plenty of other great characters in the books however, and who knows, maybe I could do a spin off with them?
Either way, Tiffany has been fab, and I for one will miss her.

Book 1 – Deliciously Deceased:
Tiffany Delamarre has it all. The good looks, the money, the designer clothes, but when this is all snatched from her in the most brutal of ways she is not impressed! Finding herself dead and stuck in Heaven with a bossy angel that clearly despises her, a major ban on coffee and make up products and surrounded by plebs is just not Tiffany’s idea of a good time. Her situation soon becomes more dire however when she is told that she has a murderer to find. Will she be able to stop this crazed killer in time? Or will she become the reason that more people are killed? The only thing that Tiffany Delamarre knows for certain: Heaven sucks!

Book 2: Delectably Departed:
Tiffany Delamarre is very rich and very dead and she is on the case again. Pearl Beauty Spa & Detox Centre must be stopped! The owner is on the run, the products are lethal, and Jodie a friend of Tiffany’s boss is booked in for the full works at the behest of her pleb boyfriend Dwight. Can Tiffany locate the owner and put a stop to this madness? Can she get Jodie away from her loser boyfriend and save her life not only from the fatal beauty products, but also from Dwight’s cruel hands? She has a lot to do and limited time in which to do it. Surely then the Devil would not be of much help – would he?

Book 3: Dynamically Dead:
Tiffany Delamarre is dead and very much in demand! Finding herself once more assigned to a case of great mystery, she must work out why single ladies are being kidnapped from the newest and hottest place in town, L.U.V. With no leads and thankfully no bodies, Tiffany finds herself in a bit of a quandary. She must once again go undercover in a role that is so not to her liking… Tiffany Delamarre a hopeless, desperate singleton… Hardly!

Book 4: Delightfully Defunct:
When Tiffany accepted her fourth case since being murdered, she did not expect that it would involve actual dead bodies! Once again determined to solve the case and impress the ever-unimpressionable Celestia, Queen Bee of all things, well, celestial, Tiffany is less than impressed that she is to be sent undercover in a funeral home. How on earth is she supposed to work out which student is chopping up corpses and evenly distributing the severed limbs into already occupied coffins? How will her Jimmy Choos survive, not to mention her well-manicured nails? Tiffany Delamarre an embalming student? Hardly!

Book 5: Decadently Discontinued – ONGOING

New book project

I sometimes wish that I could turn my brain off, stop ideas coming through and just concentrate on one book at at time – but it just isn’t to be, so a new book project is currently blooming.
(book cover in the main image).
I am however still working my way through Decadently Discontinued (The last book in the Winging It series) and hope to have it released soon 🙂
I do have some research to do on this new book, which is how I will be spending my afternoon, as I want to make sure that I get things right.

Whatever you are doing, have a lovely day 🙂

Asylum – Reviews

The first reviews are in for Asylum and I am absolutely over the moon!

I was so worried about this book, as it’s so different to what I normally write, and I’ve had a few anxious moments waiting for reviews, but they are here (see main pic, or link below) and they are fab!

Reviews are so difficult to get, so I thank you so very much ❤❤❤❤
