First of all, thank you for your lovely replies to my last newsletter.
It really made me feel a lot better to hear from all of you, and to hear how much you enjoy your furry family members, as I do.
And here’s the good news;
The first three books in the Primal Series will be released as a box set on March the 21st!
This will be your chance to get the first three books in a box set for an unbelievable low price. I will be reducing the price for the pre-order, that will start on March 1st, and the first 5 days after the release. Make sure you watch this space for more information about the Box set and how to order it.
The box set is a warming-up towards the new book in the Primal Series that is planned for release in May. Planned yes, but I still have a lot of writing to do.
What about that weather?
The news is full of extreme temperatures at the moment, 45.C in Australia and minus 50 in the US. Unbelievable. My sister lives in Australia and she commented a few days ago that it was a cool 35 degrees. A COOL 35 degrees? Throw in the humidity there and it must be really muggy.
Here in Holland, we’re more or less in the middle. The temperature hovers around the freezing point, as is usual for this time of the year. We have had some bouts of snow, but nothing dramatic. I quite like the climate here. So don’t expect me to move any time soon.
In my books I love to visit all kinds of exotic places. Maybe one day I’ll actually get around to going there in real life. My research–I like to get the details right–is all online. I love to scroll through the massive amounts of information that can be found on the net. There’s almost nothing that you can’t find. To me it’s important that the explanations of cultures, religions and arts that I write about in the books are correct. I find it interesting to research the material and often end up very distracted from the actual writing as I immerse myself in new subjects.
I very much enjoyed researching the Maori culture that features heavily in Into The Lion’s Den and the new book that I’m writing. It fascinates me to learn more about this colourful and spiritual culture. There is an enormous amount of information to be found, and I was lucky enough to have some help me in distinguishing the truth from the not-so-correct sites.
I still have a lot of research to do for my new book. This one will take me from New Zealand to Africa.
While you’re waiting for me to finish that book, here are some great books from friends.
Judy Hudson has no idea of her power, or vulnerability. Adrift without purpose, or ambition, all she knows is fear and suspicion. That is about to change.
Purah—a beautiful, otherworldly stranger—whisks her to a mysterious, old mansion and reveals a life-changing secret.
Judy is a witch who can raise the dead. She’s dangerous, and she can do great harm. But her’s is not the only secret in Winterhurst.
A powerful sorcerer is waiting for her and the perfect moment to strike. He must be stopped before an innocent town is destroyed. As Judy discovers her identity and heritage, she learns she is the key to stop an ancient evil.
Can she learn to harness her gift, and resist a lure that promises power beyond her wildest dreams?
CLAIMING THE EVIL DEAD
She’s a hot-blooded half demon. He’s a cold-blooded vampire. Sending evil souls to Hell has never been more dangerous, or steamy.
Jessie lives a normal life—office worker by day and paranormal investigator on the side. She keeps her true nature and unique gift hidden. When a vampire approaches her with knowledge of her ability, her world starts to change.
Drake, a member of Vampires for the Ethical Treatment of Other Vampires, propositions her for a job. An evil vampire is feeding on children in Chicago. Destroying him isn’t enough. Drake wants her to send his soul where it belongs…in Hell. Although Jessie doesn’t trust Drake, she can’t turn down the opportunity to serve the ultimate justice to an evil vampire.
Trying to capture the devout killer comes with a few complications. But as she partners with Drake she learns not all bloodsuckers are bad and the cold-blooded vamp is a temptation too difficult to resist.
My fourth is a freaking vampire?
Xavier is cocky, overzealous, and way too hot for his own good. He’s just what I need to stop my nightmares from coming to fruition, except he’s telling me that I’m not supposed to stop the future from happening. I’m supposed to fulfil a dark prophecy. One where I’m the Queen of Hell, turned into a vampire, and I save hell itself from being destroyed.Nate, my beloved human, is trapped Hell knows where and with my grandmother of all people. He’s full of surprises though, and he might just be the weakest link in my bond that’ll save the day.
Hell getting destroyed sounds like a good idea to me, so I’ll have to talk some sense into Xavier, but first I need to get my men all in one place. They’re stuck all over the world and, well, let’s face it, the world’s most certainly gone to shit.
Jet, my dragon shifter, has survived the last loyalists to his brother, but they won’t accept his rule unless he obtains the Dragon’s Eye. He better not die trying to retrieve it… or trying to get back to me.
When all seven sins reunite, I’ll have power over hell itself. It’s up to me what happens next.
ALL THE DEAD GIRLS
Forty-two passengers. One of them is a serial killer.
When Holly finds a phone with pictures of murdered women on it on the bus to Miami, she realizes that one of the passengers is a serial killer. A game of cat and mouse begins after the owner of the cell sends Holly a message saying that he wants his phone back.
Holly’s shocked to find out that the killer knows her name and address.
She races against time as she and her fellow passenger Nick Hayden try to figure out the identity of the owner of the phone. When he murders a young woman during one of the stops, Holly fears he’ll kill her before the end of the day.
Her chances of survival aren’t good: the killer has a partner, who is as ruthless and twisted as he is.
You’ll never guess who the real killer is.
(Inspired by a true story)
The Hound & The Philosopher Inn looks like your average pub, with only its mouthful of a name to separate it from any other. But, secrets lurk just beyond the ales, wines, spirits and bar snacks. Deadly secrets.
Kit pops into the pub following a dismal experience at a job interview. Christine visits the same pub whilst waiting for a cab. Both of their lives will be changed forever. Both will learn the pub’s secrets.
Peter is one of these secrets. Peter Smedley is a businessman, ruthless and cunning and co-owner of The Hound & The Philosopher Inn. He is also a werewolf, hellbent on changing the status quo.
HELLHOUND will draw you into the supernatural underbelly of Greater London with the promise of blood, guts and the realisation that the monsters may be closer than you think.
