Release Day for Book 8

Hey, everyone! I hope this finds you safe and healthy. 2021 has started off wild and we're only 1 month in at this point. It's a mystery what the rest of the year will bring. In the meantime, I know one thing it'll bring... Release Day for Death Comes to Us All! 

This long-awaited book has taken me a while to complete, but I'm glad it's finally to that point. Release Day will be a celebration of completion for me. At this point I even know what book 9 will be about. Yay!

The big day will be March 29th, with the Pre-Order phase and Release Day (Week) deal of only $0.99 for that week. After those few days the price will increase to $2.99, so I hope you'll take advantage and get it for the lower price. I'll be posting notices and reminders as we get closer.

In the meantime, here's the blurb for the book. In a few weeks I'll post a snippet of the first chapter.

Death Comes to Us All
Liz Baker, Book 8
Amazon Pre-Order: Click Here

I hate this! How do I always get myself into these situations? Monsters coming after me left and right, but this time I've made promises I can't back out of. I'll do anything to protect my family, even if it breaks my heart and crushes my soul to keep them safe.

Heartbroken by the loss of her family, Liz Baker must settle into the agreement she made with The Master. As she wallows in sadness, self-doubt, and defeat, Liz needs to figure out how to exist without those she loves, while training to become her captor's One True Mistress in his scheme to destroy the world.

Suffering through a millennia of death, destruction, and the evolution of the human race, The Master has grown fierce about the rules set by his ancestors. He and his men are determined to end the insanity that is “modern day” and create the foretold heaven on Earth, but to do that he must find the One True Mistress. This woman will help bring an end to everything and rebuild the world in his image. After numerous failed women in his past, he knows that woman is Liz Baker. After all, she is the daughter of the only vampire with the ability to create offspring. She has to be special... right?

The end is coming.

But will it be the end of all we know, or the end of the monster who wants to destroy the world?

Happy New Year! It's cover reveal time!

Isn't she lovely? I fell head-over-heels for this cover the moment I saw it. It's beautiful! I used the same cover designer as the entire series and after all these years she has amazed me yet again. This is actually #2 out of 3 designs because she wanted to get it just right. Even after the 3rd one I told her I just couldn't pass up this one. I love it!

Next up will be the release date announcement. I'm hoping to let you all know about it in a couple of weeks, after I get everything in order, so be on the lookout for that one. :)

Best wishes and a Happy New Year to you all! I hope 2021 brings you peace, happiness, health, and love. Fingers crossed for a better year than 2020 provided. Love and hugs to everyone!

Finders Keepers

An Almost Gothic Love Affair

Sometimes it takes a wrong turn to get you to the right place.

A bride is sent off into the unknown to marry a stranger on All Hallows Eve, October 31, 1749. What she finds on her arrival is enough to make her skin crawl.
Limping footsteps, blood-curdling screams, smoking torches, and a house on a cliff... A man she only sees in the dark, his breathing labored behind a mask.
“A betrothal is as good as the wedding vows. You cannot leave.”
“Am I your prisoner?” 
"You shall stay here until you bear me a child. Then you
can stay or go, the choice shall be mine!"

The how and why behind Finders Keepers

Finders Keepers was my contribution to the Soul's Day Boxset, which released on October 20th, 2020. The Boxset achieved No 1 bestseller status on Amazon. After running its course, it has now been disbanded, and the rights reverted to the authors. I thought 22 December 2020 a good date for a relaunch, after another round of edits, and sporting a new cover. The old one is on the left.

Then the Boxset came up. I sat down with all my notes for Darkest Midnight. It didn't take much to change the theme from Christmas to Halloween, and so Finders Keepers came about.

About me

I am an international bestselling author of spooky paranormal romance. The ghost stories had not been planned - I wanted to write an ordinary romance - you know the kind - boy meets girl, they fall in love, then boy loses girl and wants her back, bla bla bla. But that was not to be. Before I knew it, there was a persistent ghost on the page. But if he wanted to be part of my story, he was going to have to work for it, so I gave him a job.

The trick is to combine things that can't be explained, sweaty bodies and
rumpled beds in a way that will make the reader's toes curl and hair stand on end.

The Other Me

I love cooking - being married to a chef, the passion for food must have rubbed off. The result is that I am nearly as passionate about creating new dishes as I am about creating alpha heroes for every woman to fall in love with, just like I do, every time.

My Cats

And I love cats. At one time, I had eleven! Now my husband, Gareth, and I have only two as we're living in an apartment. The black and white cat, Thom, was a Tuxedo cat, but he was killed by a car. His sister, pure black - unfortunately I don't have a picture of her handy - is called Nightshade. Get it? The tabby is my baby, 14 years old, called Felix.

How I became a Bestseller

I have several books published, but my WIP pile is growing instead of getting smaller. Sometimes I worry that I won't have enough time to publish them all.

All my books feature ghosts, and they have varying levels of heat. There is the Bridesmaids, Weddings and Honeymoons series, 3 out of 5 published so far. Then there is the Moragh Saga trilogy. The first 2 books are out, and the last and final one coming mid-2021. Roxanne's Ghost duology is a complex ghost story of identical twin sisters' love for the same man. Have a look here:
