There are already several giveaways up and running; they include the gorgeous Mechanical Butterfly from the Rebel Vampires Range and a treat from Rebel Gear. On the night, there’ll be fun and games, contests, book chat, music and I’ll be there to banter with, share those perfect memes you’ve been saving and ask any question you desire (your wish is my command…snigger…).
There were thrills. Laughter. Tears… A roller coaster of a… All right, bit carried away there. Point is my blog tour is over. Finito. At an end. Thank you to Marieanne and all the hosts – you were blinding! So here are the highlights of last week.
Readeropolis: ‘I see a novel happening in my mind; it’s like I’m translating it down. Tarantino has said he does the same. Apart from he probably said it in a cooler, more American way.’
Laurie’s Paranormal Thoughts and Reviews: ‘I know the end of a novel before I’ve even written the first line. It’s like being a chauffeur of a Limousine full of VIPs (the readers) – I don’t set off on a journey without first checking the car’s not going to breakdown and I know the route!’
In another blinding week of touring, here’s Five of the Best Guest Posts and Interviews:
Inside the Mind of a Slave: This Is No Bridget Jones’s Diary – Long and Short Reviews. If you knew your private thoughts were being read by your captor, how would it change what you wrote? And who can face the flayed truth without flinching?
Three days into my Blood Shackles tour and things started with a Halloween party. Vampire Queen on a laptop? That’s urban fantasy for you.
Here are three guest blogs to sink your fangs into:
The Lampshade Reader: Vampires, Romance and Rebels – Or How to Train a Slave. To read it click here. Some fantastic comments and chat with readers.
Ever wondered what Light’s favourite drink, music or phrase was? Or what his human name once was? Find the answers in Blood Lifer Character Profiles on Andra’s Unabridged blog here.
Light’s a Londoner. Born a Victorian. But drawn to the 1960’s, when he felt most free. Want to know how to talk like him? Peepers, Starkers and Bint – The One Minute Guide To Talking Like Light. See The Voluptuous Book Diva here.
Writers. Myth goes we’re a solitary bunch. Hermit-like hunched over our manuscripts. Emerging only at book launches. As Light would say, ‘Bollocks‘. Without a reader, books are merely words on a page. There’s no emotion. No connection. And no point.
Tomorrow my month long book tour kicks off. It’s a way for me – here in Oxford, England – to connect with readers all around the world. To chat, discuss and hand out exclusive sneak peeks. Blood Shackles is released on 1st November. To pre-order it now click here.
There’s going to be giveaways (the chance to win $50 Amazon card), reviews, interviews and excerpts.
Then there’s the guest blogs… Here’s a little taste: ‘The Soundtrack of My Blood Life,’ ‘Inside the Mind of a Slave,’ and ‘How to Cook Like a Vampire.’ Intrigued? Come on, that last one..? Diamond, seriously.
But the real secret to a good blog tour becoming great? I could’ve written War and Peace but it wouldn’t matter. If none of you folks turned up, shared, liked, commented and turned it from an event into an event.
Click here to see where I’ll be each day. I’ll update Facebook daily too. Follow me on Twitter, RT and use #BloodShackles to spread the word.
Post pictures of yourself with the novel on Facebook. Ask me anything you like – I double dare you. Tell your dog – it’s Halloween, he
may be listening.
The Blood Club is coming. How far would you go to free your family?
Fantasy Rebel announces the release of Blood Shackles in paperback. It’s stunning; the design of the cover is gorgeous.
As a slave journal, there’s something very immediate, real and thrilling about reading Light’s words in a book. Holding it right there in your hand. It’s a rush. When you try it? You’ll experience an escape into his world…
And there’s nothing like fully…totally…escaping into another world.
It’s a dangerous game to love your slave…
When your whole species is enslaved – and it’s the humans who are acting like the monsters – how far would you go to free your family?
“I truly loved this book: the characters, the plot, the pace… Once you start reading it, you just
cannot put it down. A first class performance from a writer at the very top of her game.” – SLH Reviews
What happens when SPARTACUS meets VAMPIRES? Except the vampires are the slaves… In a divided paranormal London, Light is the rebel vampire of the Blood Lifer world.

But if he doesn’t, he’ll never solve the conspiracy behind the Blood Club…
WELCOME TO THE BLOOD CLUB
Who are these ruthless humans? Who’s their brutal leader? And who betrayed the secret of the Blood Lifer world?

BECOME THE PREY
Does a chilling conspiracy lie behind it all? A stunning revelation leads Light to an inconceivable truth. To the dark heart of the Blood Club. If he can face his worst terrors, he can save his family and his whole species from slavery.
