REMEMBRANCE DAY – Heroes and Writing

Yesterday was Remembrance Sunday. My grandad and great-grandads, like most people’s, fought in the First and Second World Wars.

Looking through their medals as a kid is a memory that’s stuck with me.

BLOOD GODS is my latest novella, which is released in February in the COUNTING STARS box set. Set in the REBEL VAMPIRES world, it was inspired by a poppy. The symbol of remembrance, heroism and sacrifice. It commemorates the war dead.

How do you become a hero? What’s true sacrifice? And what does it mean to be human, even if humans sometimes act like the monsters? 

 

These are all the core ideas that inspire and drive me. I’m excited to tell you more when the box set’s released…

I remember sitting turning over the paper poppy each year and wondering what it meant. Then studying the First World War and seeing those scarlet fields. And at least partly understanding.

When people ask where inspiration comes from for my books, the honest answer is: life. Sometimes, the spark has been there from childhood.

Old medals and paper poppies. Or the heroes still fighting.

FANTASY REBEL ANNOUNCES BLOOD DRAGONS AUDIOBOOK – Three of the Best Audiobooks

Fantasy Rebel announces that the AUDIOBOOK for BLOOD DRAGONS has now been signed for production!

An audiobook version of the REBEL VAMPIRES series has been frequently requested over the last year. Now it’s in development!

I love audiobooks. They can be listened to on the move, in the car or while you work around the house. The narrator pulls you into the world of the book, in an intense and emotionally gripping way.

Here are Three of the Best Audiobooks:

  1. Dresden Files: Jim Butcher. Highly inventive urban fantasy, narrated by James Marsters. This is the gold standard of narration, interpreted and acted, rather than simply read. Perfect.
  2. Harry Potter: J.K. Rowling. Narrated by Stephen Fry. One of the best British actors, presenters, narrators, comedians, and writers… there aren’t many people as talented as Fry. Brilliant.
  3. The Night Circus: Erin Morgenstern. I love this dark, fantasy tale about a travelling circus and magic. It’s narrated by one of the best British narrators – Jim Dale – a wizard himself with a thousand voices.

What’s your favourite audiobook?

I LOVE VAMPIRE BOOKS BECAUSE… Five of the Best Reasons

I’ve always been passionate about the paranormal: vampires, werewolves, angels, demons and fae…

Vampire books are not only the first books I decided to write in the genre, however, they’re the first books I READ in it too: BRAM STOKER’S Dracula (1897), ANNE RICE’S The Vampire Lestat (1985) and POPPY Z BRITE’S Lost Souls (1992).

But why do you love vampire books?

BLOOD RENEGADES Release Party this week was EPIC.

As Blood Renegades is about a British vampire anti-hero battling towards redemption, one of the contests asked my blinding guests to complete the line: ‘I love vampire books because…’

Here are Five of the Best Reasons To Love Vampire Books!

  1. Marsha:  I love vampire books because the main character has so much to their personality and you can mold them how you want them.
  2. Sarah: Romance, fighting, the thrill, the excitement…I love vampire books because it’s the first thing that has saved me when I needed to be saved the most.
  3. Samantha: Because they keep me on the edge of my seat, and they are totally AWESOMETASTICAL.
  4. Michelle: I love to escape with an awesome supernatural character!!
  5. Jennifer: They are magical and sexy. The mystery and allure. Their immortality and strength are exciting.

And CONGRATULATIONS to the winner ERIN!

‘I love vampire books because they let me escape reality and enjoy a world of total fantasy and nonstop excitement!! The intensity of the characters goes unrivaled by any other books I’ve read! Its like combining action with mystery, magic, paranormal, fantasy and suspense all into one category!! Its a completely thrilling ride when you get submerged in a story like these!’

Blood Renegades is out now at the release price of 0.99.

 

 

NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER – Blood Renegades Release

Yesterday Blood Renegades – the third book in the award-winning Rebel Vampires series – was released by Fantasy Rebel. By the end of the day it had hit Number One Bestseller in its Category and broken top 10 in a number of others.

I’ve been working on Blood Renegades since before Christmas. But the core idea has been there since the very start of the series.

Some of the mysteries? The powerful Long-liveds, villains, twists and turns, big picture that suddenly falls into place..? I’ve been bouncing on the balls of my feet – like Light – with excitement to let people in on for a year now… So this week? It’s a great feeling!

My Blog Tour continues until the 20th June. Find where I’ll be on the Events page.

My Release Party was EPIC – thanks to everyone who rocked it!

I’ve loved love fantasy, as well as vampires, ever since I was a kid reading through my mum’s collection and losing myself in their world… then as a teenager watching them on TV and falling in love all over again.

But with Rebel Vampires I wanted to reinvent things with a twist. A new British myth, with a rebel anti-hero that I was as passionate about, as the books I read.

When you get to Release Weeks, it’s all about finally opening out to readers the world and characters you’ve been building in your own head. Letting them in your own secret world.

And then holding your breath…
